Mountain majesty, cozy rooms await in Mystic View Cabins

The view from Mystic View Cabins near Fishtail is spectacular, with the beautiful Beartooths right out the door.


A rustic motif awaits guests at Mystic View Cabins, with books and games
to entertain visitors of all ages.  Owners Jerry and Sheri Cross are your hosts.

Each cabin includes a welcome with
brochures, suggestions and contacts. 


WE HAD an overflow of about 15 people at the weekend's family reunion when the RSVPs came in.
So a couple months ago, I started researching vacation rentals in our area in the remote Beartooth Mountains.
We found an idyllic place in Mystic View Cabins, where part of the Cosgriffe Clan stayed for two peaceful, nature-nudged nights.
Owners Jerry and Sheri Cross have poured lots of love, toil and tenderness into the four cabins near Fishtail.
A full kitchen and plenty of sleeping await in the large A-frame.

Named for the elk, moose and deer that inhabit the countryside, the artfully decorated cabins have a rustic, comforting appeal.
The price is reasonable -- about $125 for the large A-frame cabin for four people, plus $10 per each additional person.
Each cabin has a full kitchen, comfy beds and pretty views.
From the cabins, you can walk or ride a horse, enjoy the vistas of the gorgeous Beartooth Mountains, rest, read, soak up the quiet.
"We've tried to make people welcome," says Sheri, who comes from Illinois. (Jerry is a native New Yorker.) The couple has had the cabins for three years, working full-time to create the enterprise and get the word out.
LOCATED on Jules Way, about 12 miles out of Fishtail on the West Rosebud Road, if you approach from the West, you'll come via Fiddler Creek. (The two roads intersect.)
The cabins accommodate from two to 10 guests. Check Mystic View out on Facebook, or call 406 321-3103.

A hummingbird pauses at High Chaparral to enjoy a drink of sugar water.

 Birds of a feather.  Never have we seen such fantastic bird life in our little nook of the Northern Rockies.  Come with us to enjoy the bounty, from raptors to hummingbirds. And buntings, flickers, grosbeaks and much more. Remember to explore, learn and live, and catch us Wednesdays and weekends at www.whereiscookie.com
