Homestake Lodge is an ideal location for a relaxing, quiet retreat or a loud, boisterous family gathering. The lodge sits atop a knoll looking out over the Moose Creek drainage. We sit in a little valley surrounded on all sides by beautiful Montana mountains. We have 160 wooded acres with a few gorgeous meadows. The rest of the property surrounding us is National Forest. It is a very peaceful spot situated on the Boulder Batholith in SW Montana. We are a 20 minutes drive from Butte, Montana and 10 minutes from I-90.
The lodge is the ideal place for a group gathering, family reunion or retreat. The lodge can sleep 20 in two family style bunkrooms and has a large commercial kitchen. Groups can easily come in and get comfortable in the space. Bathrooms and showers are on the lower level of the lodge. The kitchen, great room, small bunkroom, and bathroom are located on the main floor, and second floor has the large bunkroom. The Great Room has a massive stone fireplace surrounded by a couch and comfy chairs. There are 2 long dining tables which seat 12 at each table. A smaller room off the main Great Room is an empty space (during the spring, summer, and fall) and can be used for any number of activities.
Additional Lodging includes three cabins which sleep 2, 4 and 6 people. The cabins are located a short walk from the lodge. The yurt is located about 1km from the lodge and during the summer and fall can be driven to. The yurt sleeps 5-6. See additional info on lodging page. Dogs are welcome in one of the cabins and yurt but not the main lodge. See the lodging page for more information on our accommodations.
Here is a partial list of business entities that have used Homestake Lodge for its gatherings: Montana Conservation Corps, Hopa Mountain, Shift Empowerment, St. James Hospital, Americorp Energy Corps, Americorp Food Corp, Jesuit Volunteer Corps, Headframe Spirits and the National Center for Appropriate Technology.
