From the Zillow listing:


A rare opportunity to have your own cabin in the heart of Bozeman’s favorite recreational area, Hyalite Canyon! This classic Forest Service (FS) cabin has served as a rustic getaway for 100+ years, and is said to have been built as a nurses’ retreat circa 1911. Its walls have seen countless cribbage games, pig roasts, bachelor parties, honeymoons, and everything in between – and is ready for its next steward to add their own chapter to its history! The cabin has power and phone, gravity-fed spring water and a well-constructed outhouse. FS Recreational Residences can not be primary residences, or used for commercial/rental purposes, and this property does not qualify for financing, but must be a cash-only purchase. Only improvements convey; the land is owned by the USFS and cabin owner must obtain a FS Special Use Permit. The FS Recreational Residence Program (RRP) has been in effect for over 100 years – rarely does a cabin in such an ideal location come up for sale – don’t miss out!
