Things to do during "cabin time" in Nye
Nye Montana lodging near Yellowstone National Park offers a great location and a pass to adventure (adventure is a common word in these parts). Nye, MT lodges and cabins are perfect for the true adventurer, thrill-seeker, and sightseer in all of us. Originally settled in the 1860’s by miners, valuable ore wasn’t the only treasure in this area - it had natural beauty that made folks stick around for generations. Hugged by the serene Absaroka - Beartooth Wilderness, Nye is a small town just minutes away from nearly one million natural acres of scenic tundra, immense canyons and glistening streams of Yellowstone National Park. Wake up to the Beartooth Mountains out your cabin window. Enjoy the jaw-dropping view of mountain peaks over 2 miles in elevation. These untouched landscapes are only part of the reason Nye is the perfect destination for your next vacation.
Beginning in the mountains, the beautiful Stillwater River cuts across the Montana wilderness, flowing through Nye before making its way to the Yellowstone River. The river offers you a great chance at reeling in multiple species of trout. Fly fishing is common in the area, but luckily, these waters largely remain unfished by tourists. Drive half an hour east to find Absaroka River Adventures, an accommodating family-owned rafting tour business on the Stillwater River. Nye is home to much more than just trout and friendly people. Photograph stunning wildlife that make this area unlike any other. Grizzly bears, elk and mountain lions all roam the region, even if they’re a little camera-shy. Nye’s lodges, cottages and cabins give you the perfect home away from home feel, so you can enjoy your stay, stress-free.
Starting in May, trek the Woodbine Falls trail near Nye for easy, family-friendly exploration. For something a little more challenging, try the West Fork Stillwater Trail, a 26-mile adventure with rewarding views. Don’t forget to look down on your hike, because you’re standing on some of the oldest rocks in the world. Take a short drive to the ghost town of Limestone, an old mining community where tattered buildings tell a story of early American dreamers.
Make sure to visit Carter’s Camp, a restaurant in town with quite the story of it’s own. For over 60 years, delicious food has kept this hidden gem in business. From local favorites like the pulled pork sandwich to healthier salad options, the Carter’s Camp menu can satisfy any craving. Stop by on Fridays for a fun night full of karaoke and prime rib. At the end of the day unwind under the starry sky in the comfort of your own Nye, MT vacation rental.
