"Far from the crowded streets, midst birds and trees and flowers,
life is a song whose stanzas are happy sunlit hours."

"Sarah, your magical wholesome homestead was the perfect ambience for my 40th blessing. Wisdom, stories, poems and lyrics from several women's hearts were offered on my aging behalf as a welcoming into a new decade. Everyone loved your rustic yet homey setting! A truely magical and emotional healing retreat."
- Jen Moran, Livingston, MT

Located off US 89 - turn East at the blinking yellow light in Emigrant. Go to the "T" intersection and turn left. Drive 1/2 mile and turn right. Continue to drive through Chico Hot Springs and follow the gravel road 1.3 miles to Old Chico. The Homestead Cabin is on the right. No. 308. Please pull around to the right at the end of the wooden privacy fence and enter through the gate.



Rustic, yet comfortable, the newly renovated historic cabin comes complete with a warm inviting marbled gas fired stove, antiques, featherbeds, down comforters, a Mexican tiled kitchen and bathroom. All linens and towels are supplied.

Originally sited outside of Helena, this wonderfully rebuilt 1800's log cabin still holds all the magic and mystery of the gold mining days. Owner Sarah Muller bought the cabin, moved it, and had it restacked at its present location in the historic mining town of Old Chico.

The cabin sleeps 4 comfortably with one double, one queen and a trundle bed. There is a bathroom with a shower, a well equipped kitchen with microwave, coffee maker, excellent coffee and teas, blender, stove, toaster, pots and pans. Wireless Internet connection and a CD stereo are provided. At the end of the days explorations relax and enjoy a BBQ on your own private deck. The cabin has a library of trail guides and geology books, maps and a few games.
