You’ll have most of the space to yourself. There is an attached apartment. You’ll likely not see, or will barely see, the couple who live there with their dog.

Your on-site host, Jody, will meet you to show you around the host. She is also available to cook meals for an additional charge. Please inquire.

You’ll be staying in rural Montana, near the charming town of Whitehall, which lies between Bozeman and Butte. Our gathering home is nestled in the foothills of the mountains where Jefferson Valley meets Beaverhead Deerlodge National Forest. This is an absolutely stunning part of the country.

There is a separate attached apartment in the home where the owner’s sister lives. You most likely won’t see them.

A dog lives on-site; no pets allowed.

The owners built the home by hand using recycled and repurposed materials. Enjoy the mosaics made from recycled tiles, the amazing re-homed picture windows and stained glass, and notice that each part of the home was built with love and appreciation for the materials used. Rustic and eclectic, this eco-retreat is truly a work of art that stands in collaboration with nature.

KITCHEN: The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, spices, cooking oils, salt and pepper. There is a gas stove with 4 burners for those who like to cook. We also have an oven, microwave, and toaster oven. Full fridge and freezer — we have ice cube trays but no ice maker. French press for coffee, blender, and magic bullet, too! Organic coffee, half and half, and a selection of teas are also supplied for your enjoyment.

BATHROOM: The upstairs bathroom has a clawfoot tub and also rainfall showerhead. We recently added shampoo, conditioner, and body wash so that you don’t have to bring your own.

BEDROOMS: The two bedrooms are located upstairs. Note that you must pass through one bedroom to get to the other. Both have their own doors for privacy. We also have a twin day bed and a full futon downstairs for additional sleeping. ( Please be sure to properly indicate the number of people in your reservation so that our housekeepers can be sure to leave you with an appropriate number of linens and towels!) Because this an eco-retreat with sustainability and the environment top of mind, linens are cotton and washed with natural, fragrance free laundry detergent.

OUTDOOR SPACES: You’ve got a privtae outdoor patio upstairs off the bedrooms — as well as an outdoor back covered patio complete with fan and patio lights! Seating for 4 at the outdoor table on the back patio.

FIRE RING: Skilled fire tenders are welcome to use the fire ring and even help themselves to our firewood. Please be very careful if you decide to start a fire.

NOTE: It has a very outdoorsy feel. You’re likely to see squirrels, birds, maybe even a fox or raccoon. Summertimes are usually full of bugs — and they might find themselves inside your home. Cobwebs can appear literally overnight. For those weary of the great outdoors or nature’s creatures, this place is not for you. We do not fumigate and choose to use natural pest management strategies whenever possible. The home is chemical and fragrance-free for easier breathing and better sleep.

If you’d like to book both places at the same time for a 3BR/2BA stay, click on Erin’s profile to find the Storybook Retreat and book that instead. ( Art, Beauty, Nature is the studio if you only need a small space for 2 people.) Our calendars are up-to-date, so what you see reflects true availability.

You will need a car although Uber and Lyft have provided rides in the past. Not sure about the current status. If you don’t like driving country roads this is not the place for you, but it really is only 12 minutes from Carrboro.

Caution to older and physically challenged people, including kids: There are stairs and many levels in this house. Not a good place for those wanting a single-level place. The only bathroom is upstairs unless you book Storybook Retreat instead (then you’ll have one bedroom and bathroom downstairs and one bathroom and two bedrooms upstairs).

PET FEE: Well-behaved pets are welcome with a $50 fee (per pet) per stay. Please inquire about our pet policy.
