The Best Cabin Getaways: Livingston, Montana

I want to escape to a cabin in the woods. I'm looking for someplace that's really isolated, but close to lots of recreation and a small town where I can grab a decent bite to eat. What do you recommend?

A:

Judging by a map, you would think Livingston’s proximity to Yellowstone National Park (about 50 miles away) is its greatest asset. But there’s plenty of other things to do outdoors around this town, which sits in a bend in the Yellowstone River. Livingston is prime fly-fishing country, and more than 2,000 miles of hiking trails wind through the nearby Gallatin National Forest. Try for a riverfront cabin—a large selection is usually available.

Taste of civilization: Wash down the Bistro steak and fries with a Moose Drool brown ale at the 2nd Street Bistro downtown.
