Montana Mountain Retreat Guarantees No Cabin Fever
It's hard not to blanch when we see a hotel package slapped with a price tag in the thousands, but reading the fine print does help to quell the sticker shock—at least a little bit. Even hotels known for their opulence are trying their best to go the bargain route, even if that bargain is set at $4,060, like the Mountain Romance getaway we found at Montana's Triple Creek Ranch.
Stick around and listen for a moment before you burrow your wallet away: that four-oh-my-god-are-you-kidding rate is for a five-night stay in one of their Luxury Cabins (normally $950/night, per couple), which are essentially mini-private homes with bells and whistles like a double steam shower, wood burning fireplace, living room, stocked bar, and a deck with hot tub.
You'll also get requisite mood-setting courtesies like champagne and chocolates upon arrival, a couple's massage, gourmet dinners at night, and access to the resort's facilities, including horseback riding and hiking. We wouldn't be surprised if a copy of The Bridges of Madison County was left on your end table, either.
The package is available from December 1st through February 28th of next year, and if you choose to stay over Christmas or New Years, an extra $150 will be tacked onto your room rate. You should contact the hotel directly to book the package (800-654-2943 or 406-821-4600). And don't worry, being afflicted with cabin fever isn't a distinct possibility.
