Blue Ribbon Trout Stream Out Your Back Door

Clinton, Montana

The amazing location and privacy of this property speaks for itself. Located just steps from Rock Creek you can put the coffee on, throw a line in, and have a fish on before your first cup.

Sitting on 3.5 acres, surrounded by USFS land, wetlands, a spring creek, and mountains, this is your own personal getaway! Whether you are a hard core angler, novice or porch lounger, this property will meet your every need. The stocked pond, located about 50 feet from the front porch, is perfect for young children to try their hand at fishing and fun for the expert to practice that new dry fly. A short hike gets you over to the spring creek to try your luck. And the famed blue ribbon trout stream called Rock Creek needs no description.

The cabin has three porches. The front porch tends to be sunny and looks out over the large yard and pond. The two back porches, one upstairs and one down, sit overlooking Rock Creek and tend to stay in the shade. Large windows allow constant views of the wildlife and surrounding mountains.

Downstairs holds a laundry/mud room, the open kitchen and family room complete with beautiful gas stove, smart TV and comfy furniture. The master bedroom with queen bed and full bath is also located on the first floor.

Climb upstairs to the loft and you may not want to come down after seeing the view from all directions. Two cozy queen beds set up next to the windows at either end of the loft let you wake up to the eagle flying down the creek, or watch deer out by the pond. There is also a bunk with queen mattress on bottom and twin on top plus a separate small bedroom with a twin bed. The second full bath is also upstairs and we provide two blow up mattresses if extra sleeping space is needed for large groups.

We stock the cabin with many conveniences ranging from basic spices, hand soap, laundry detergent and paper products to shampoo and hair dryers, allowing for lighter bags on those long flights and a faster stop at the market. Dish Network, internet, WiFi, and included long distance phone, keep you as connected to the world as you would like to be. We also happily supply a rolling cooler, plastic ware, guide recommendations, and local maps and brochures.

Rock Creek Meadows is about relaxing, enjoying your time together and making the most of your stay. We are here to help make that happen as we try and improve the Cabin and yard each year with our returning guests in mind.

    What an amazing property! There is a view from every window and every direction. We didn't want to leave! Three generations of family met here to celebrate my sons graduation from high school. Nobody was successful with fishing but everyone had a great time! We saw so much wildlife...moose, deer, beavers, an eagle, and fish we couldn't catch! My favorite part was sitting on the back porch in the porch swing watching and listening to Rock Creek, which is more like a river than a creek. We had no idea how close it was to the cabin. It is literally feet from the back door. We slept with the windows open so the sound of the creek put us to sleep. So relaxing. Ailleen, you have an amazing cabin that is clean and stocked with everything you could ever need. We are already wanting to plan another trip out to your cabin next year!

    We loved the property. Unfortunately Rock Creek was blown out during our stay, but nothing you can do about that. A storm came in on night #2 and deposited 2.5 of rain on top of the swollen creek. We spent the better part of 2 days inside the cabin watching the rain come down, but what a great place to have to spend time inside. The property was clean, cozy and the setting great. We would definitely come back here again.

    This was our second stay at this Rock Creek property hosted by Aileen York. The house was well maintained, clean, and stocked with all of the essentials that we needed. The location of the property, immediately next to Rock Creek, provided the most relaxing setting for all. We enjoyed the moose eating in the pond in front of the property along with deer that traveled the meadow on a regular basis. Fishing was the primary focus of the visit along with meeting friends that we had not seen since our previous visit. The fishing was great, the catching slow, but that was expected with the hot weather. We can't say enough about Eileen and her focus to make us comfortable and insure we had all that we needed. This level of customer service is hard to find. We can surely recommend this to anyone who wants to be off the beaten path and in search of immediate relaxation. The Troutkateers

I have stayed throughout Montana and this cabin/property was the best. The cabin is absolutely beautiful and completely outfitted for any cooking or household need. We stayed 8 days with 6 men and were more then comfortable the whole stay. The fishing was good right out the back door and the location was perfect for a base camp to fish all of Rock Creek. The property was was secluded and quite with phenomenal views from the decks. We saw moose (daily), deer, eagles, elk and river otters. Aileen was great and made sure to answer any questions or meet any needs we had. You will not be disappointed with this cabin and property.

    Aileen, We had a great time at the Rock Creek cabin ! Very relaxing and peaceful.......the most enjoyable memories were the sessions of morning coffee and evening wine on the front deck ! Also, great recommendation on Renegade Fly Fishing Outfitters; although we missed the peak of the fishing season, Eric arranged for an all-day float on the Blackfoot where we hooked into some large cut-bows. In fact, our most memorable wildlife experience occurred while cruising the river; we had the unique opportunity to view a rare eagle aerial jousting display right in front of the boat. Fishing the upper reaches of Rock Creek proved to be successful as well where we landed several large browns. We'll definitely be back and are making plans to return for next fall. Nice visiting with you during your stay and hope you and Sergeant had a safe trip home. Thanks and will be in touch, Paul & Eva - Montgomery, TX

    My father and I had talked about trying our hands at fly-fishing in Montana for over ten years before making the trip to Rock Creek in 2015. What a wonderful experience set in the majesty of the western Montana landscape and complemented by the luxurious accommodation and amenities provided by the owners of Rock Creek Meadows. The cabin was fabulously appointed and catered for everything we wanted, the fishing was fantastic and right on our doorstep (literally) and the local community were warm and welcoming. I would make special mention of the assistance we were provided by the owners of Rock Creek Meadows who went above and beyond to help us in planning our trip and putting us in touch with local businesses who would be of assistance to us in our pursuits. They were the perfect hosts which made their property an easy choice.

    My wife and i stayed at this property from 7/7/2015 to 7/10/2015, and having lived in the area and stayed at similar facilities on other rivers, we thought we knew what to expect. However we were wrong, the pictures and write ups don't give this property proper justice, and our expectations were completely blown away. The property itself is beautiful, very private, beautiful views, and is literally feet away from the river. The cabin was perfect, the kitchen was well stocked with all of the basics, the family room had nice comfortable seating with a flat screen tv, and all of the sleeping areas were very well done. The cabin has three decks, we would drink our morning coffee on the front deck, have an afternoon cocktail on the back deck over looking the river, and at night go upstairs to the top deck which had an unbelievable view of the river and the stars. In addition, the owners were very nice and more than responsive to any questions we had prior to our arrival, they were very helpful by providing us all of the information we needed to get to their property and once we arrived they went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We will be back, this property is a slice of heaven and it completely exceeded our expectations.

Definitely not long enough. The owner was 110% accommodating. Even made sure we had a roasting pan for the Thanksgiving turkey! Very responsive and an overall wonderful experience with Aileen. The house iteself was better than home. Fully modern, totally equipped, and comfortable don't even begin to describe it. If anything, the pictures and the description don't even come close to doing it justice. Same goes for the surrouding beauty. If you are looking for a true Montana experience, this is the place. All the comforts of home, fishing out your back door, hiking and wildlife, and an absolutely picturesque setting. You will feel like you have been dropped into a postcard. Literally the only sound we heard was the river. We all agreed that this is a place we will come back to, but for a much longer stay.

    My two friends met me in Montana for a few days of relaxation and fishing. We had considered staying in a hotel in Missoula, but found this property on vrbo, and decided to take a chance on it sight unseen. My conversations and dealing with the owner Aileen were terrific, very helpful. I had grown up fishing on Rock Creek, and to be able to stay right next to the Creek in this beautiful cabin was a blessing, bringing back a lot of great memories. The property is far enough off of the main road to feel secluded. The pond on the property really is stocked with fish, fun to try to catch. The property is also large enough to give you plenty of room as well. The cabin is beautiful,very clean,and the owner has thoughtfully provided many items ahead of time for cooking, etc. Having a flat screen and cable TV for sports was pretty sweet! And the cabin wi-fi worked well, to be able to email when necessary. Cabin has plenty of room, tastefully decorated, very well kept up. Appliances are great, most are brand new. The porches on both sides of the cabin are REALLY nice. Rock Creek was fun to fish again, lots of places to access the Creek. This is a beautiful part of Montana, and only about 45 minutes from Missoula. I can't say enough about how nice a place this is, and how well the owners have done in creating a relaxing hideaway. We WILL be back!

    Of all the many homes we have rented, worldwide, this was one of the best. The log home and location was everything and more than stated. Secluded, directly on one of the best trout fly fishing rivers in Montana. The log home was beautiful and felt like home. The owners have provided everything from awesome towels ( endless), designer ground coffee, wine glasses, everything and more than needed. The home was clean, lots of windows and decks with incredible views from every one. I had the chance to meet one of the owners who was really nice and helpful. My only negative is that I was only there for 3 days ! I am already in planning stage for a return visit for at least a week with friends. This is a perfect vacation rental for relaxation, yet only about a half hour from Missoula. With a complete modern excellent kitchen, and the awesome new large gas grill, I suggest grocery shopping for your stay, and never leaving the site. I give this rental 6 stars out of 5 !
