Yes. Cabins are pet friendly. We ask that you do not allow pets on furniture or beds. Please clean up after your pet on the mowed lawn, poop in the tall grass is ok.
The cabins are non-smoking but we do provide a sand bucket for ashes and putting out butts. Never throw lit cigarettes onto the ground as Montana is a very dry climate and fire danger is high.
