Spend The Night At Virginia City Homestead, A Montana Ghost Town Cabin
For a ghost town, Montana’s Virginia City can be quite lively during the summertime. But in any other season, it’s quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. And thanks to this unique vacation rental, you can enjoy it to the fullest while staying in a turn-of-the-century homestead cabin.
Virginia City Homestead is a charming cabin that sits nestled in the heart of Virginia City, about 85 miles from the entrance to Yellowstone National Park.
The cabin is located on a private, two-acre retreat, with wilderness beginning at your front door.
The cozy cabin is heated with propane, but you're welcome to fire up the woodstove for the ambiance (for a small fee).
The place is stocked with all the essentials and comforts of home you'll need, but there's no TV or WiFi - it's a place to go off the grid for awhile.
You'll have a full kitchen here, so you can cook yourself hearty meals every day.
But if you'd like to go into town for a bite to eat, you'll have a short two-minute drive or an easy 10-15 minute walk over the hill to downtown Virginia City.
The cabin has two bedrooms, as well as extra beds, so it can host six guests comfortably.
There are also 1.5 bathrooms inside, and you can request extra mattresses and sleeping bags if you're traveling with young children.
This homesteaders' cabin was built of hand-hewn logs from the Twin Bridges area at the turn of the 20th century.
The current owners and hosts, Jon and Rikki, actually saved it from being demolished and re-stacked it log by log before meticulously restoring it to what it is today.
Step outside and you'll see the hoophouse where Jon and Rikki grow organic produce.
Beyond the hoophouse, you can see the nearest neighbor - but you'll be more likely to encounter deer in the driveway than another human.
Waking up every morning surrounded by this beauty is simply surreal.
The cabin rental starts at $165 nightly for two guests. Each additional (adult) guest is $35 per night. The peace and relaxation you'll feel here is priceless.
