Feathered Pipe Ranch Accommodations: The Essence of Rustic Comfort
Our lodging options offer the finest in rustic comfort. Indoor and outdoor choices include a variety of private or shared accommodations ranging from chalet-style rooms to tents, tipis and yurts nestled in the forest.
To help you select the accommodation that best suits you, please review the descriptions below and feel free to look at a Ranch map here to get a better idea of the layout of various lodging choices.
After retreat registration, Feathered Pipe office staff will contact you to confirm your lodging preference. Accommodations include all meals and use of all amenities – our bathhouse, sauna, hot tub, as well as all the Feathered Pipe Ranch facilities and grounds.
Accommodations exclude massage and bodywork.
The Lake Cabin
This is premier real estate at the Feathered Pipe Ranch! A beautiful two-bedroom, two bath, fully appointed mountain cabin, this lovingly-constructed space is tailor made for those seeking all the comforts of home (including a kitchen). The East side of the cabin has a large living room/sitting area bathed in morning light with a large bay window offering a relaxing view of the Peace Garden, our sprawling lawn, and Main Lodge. The West side of the cabin has a second seating/lounging area off the master bedroom with a long row of windows outside the lake-side deck for lake- and sunset-viewing. The deck is a perfect space for gathering with friends or sitting in solitude to appreciate the late afternoon sparkles of Montana summer sunlight on the lake.
Nestled in the trees next to a small brook near the bathhouse is Teachers Cabin. Having its own kitchenette shared by two one bedroom mini-apartments with living room and private bathroom, makes this lodging offering special. Ceiling fans, central heat and huge comfy queen-size beds assures your comfort in all weather. Typically used by our teachers for each weeks workshop, it is now available along with the Lake Cabin for select retreats. (Check individual retreat listing for availability.)
The Ranch Chalet
The chalet offers spectacular views of the Ranch overlooking the lake and the northern Rocky Mountains stretching beyond. Rooms have been hand crafted with wood flooring, abundant soft lighting, wood-chinked, outer walls and central heating for the rare occasions when the wondrous, Montana summer nights become too chilly for your comfort. Private and shared bathrooms are available with a shared veranda for the upper floor and outer deck for the ground floor rooms.
Up in the forest beyond Teachers’ Cabin, two more cabins are available for those who like being still more intimate to nature. The Honeymoon Cabin offers a rustic ambiance with a front porch and room for two with a private bathroom. Its proximity to the bathhouse allows you to take full advantages of sauna, hot tub and restful, healing massage before snuggling in for the night.
Sai Condo is nestled still farther back in the tall pines with a large floor to ceiling wall of windows and room for three. Both the Honeymoon Cabin and Sai Condo have heat, but Sai Condo lodgers will need to toddle off on a short walk to the beautiful bathhouse for restroom and shower facilities. Both cabins comfortably straddle the two worlds between nature living and the creature comforts of home.
The Main Lodge
The main lodge has the character of western luxury of the last century with a huge, wood-beamed main hall and library with four adjoining spacious bedrooms. Each room sleeps four and each has its own bathroom. Staying in the main lodge has the advantages of immediate, 24-hour access to the main hall for personal early morning practice and close proximity to the Feathered Pipe kitchen and dining hall where our staff work their culinary magic.
The most requested lodging at the Feathered Pipe Ranch may be our yurt accommodations, and for good reason
With large, glass domes located at the center of the lattice-supported, canvas ceiling, brilliant, warm sunlight pours in during the day and offers a breathtaking view of the starry, starry sky at night. Nothing compares! Our yurts can sleep two and feature raised wood flooring and an interior sealed from the external elements.
Our tipi dwellers love falling to sleep on elevated cots inside toasty sleeping bags while gazing at the myriad sparkling stars spread across the crystal clear night sky and waking to a cathedral of bird songs welcoming in the new day. True, intimate connection with nature can be experienced in tipi living; it’s clear why the Plains Indian tribes developed this perfect nomadic dwelling. Our tipis offer you an open “eye to the sky” with canvas walls that shift color, light and shadow during daylight.
Tent accommodations as well are hidden amidst the trees for those who truly want solitude to “rough it,” the comfortable Feathered Pipe way. “Roughing it” includes full access to the nearby bathhouse with its fragrant cedarwood, the warmth of the sauna, and soothing bliss inside our sparkling hot tub.
Workshop and Retreat Prices Include Full Access to All Amenities
Your stay at the Feathered Pipe Ranch includes access to our extensive grounds, our fully-equipped bath house with showers, sauna, and a beautiful new hot tub.
While you’re at the Ranch, you’ll also have access to extraordinary hiking on and surrounding our beautiful grounds. A spring-fed lake sits at the heart of the property and lots of guests love to spend time lounging, boating, or swimming in the fresh mountain water.
Massage and Bodywork are offered for an extra fee.
