The space
Thank you for your interest in Black Mountain Lodge!
Whether you are seeking accommodations for a small intimate gathering or for a "Special Event", we are certain the magic of this historic space will create long lasting memories. Black Mountain Lodge now has options to expand overnight accommodations by adding a Glamping Tent and/or Chalet for an additional charge. See "ACCOMMODATIONS" below for more information. Before booking a "Special Event" please contact the host and read the "Special Event" section in "Rules".

This historic property was originally a lucrative mining claim during the Gold Rush. The tailings from multiple mining claims can be found in the nearby hills. You might get lucky yourself but don't be tricked by the glittering Fool's Gold that laces the stream! In the early 1900s it became Primrose Farm, a dairy providing fresh milk to nearby Helena. Our family acquired the property in 1941 and we are now heading into our fourth generation as stewards of this remarkable piece of Montana.

During the day take in the panoramic view from the large screened porch. Or hike miles of spectacular trails right from the front door. Wildlife abounds in our mountain meadow and you will spot animals large and small--moose, deer, elk, coyotes, even bear--from both the porch and trail.

The spacious Main Lodge with its sleeping porch and four private sleeping cabins easily accommodate up to 13 guests. A gurgling mountain stream winds its way between the Lodge and cabins lulling you to sleep at night. If you are looking to add overnight accommodations for up to 5 additional people, we offer the option to add a TIPI $40 per night (sleeps 2) and/or a fully equipped Chalet with its own kitchen and bath at $150 per night (sleeps up to 3). These additions can be added for a minimum of one night or be available for your entire stay. Please contact the host for information.

The Main Lodge sleeping porch has two twin beds. The four sleeping cabins include a king size bed, a four person bunk house, a lower cabin with a full size bed and twin bed and a creek side cabin with a full bed and futon. A full bathroom is located in the Main Lodge and a multi-user Bath House serves the sleeping cabins. If your group requires extra accommodations, our TIPI/or Chalet are charming additions. The TIPI has a full size bed. The Chalet has a queen bed and twin sleeping bench, kitchen and bath. The Chalet is a short walking or driving distance from the Lodge and has its own parking and WIFI.

The Lodge kitchen (and Chalet kitchen if applied to your reservation) are provisioned with staples such as basic spices, coffee filters and cleaning supplies. There is a gas stove, microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, coffee maker and outdoor gas grill for your use.

The Lodge phone has a landline which includes long distance service. Cell phone reception is patchy in the mountain valley. There are a couple spots in the meadow where calls can be made although texts can be sent and received more consistently. Ask Ayrne and she can point out those hot spots!

Helena, Montana, United States

The newly renovated Broadwater Hot Springs and grill is a 10 minute drive from the Lodge. If you want to explore the surrounding area there is mountain biking, fly fishing and river rafting for the adventurous types and fine western art galleries and historic sites downtown for the more cultural types. We would be happy to point you in the right direction depending on your interests.
