This is the Best Lodge to Rediscover and Recoop

We know you enjoy #CabinTime just as much as we do! burnt

Words can’t always express the magnitude in which we feel very small compared to the large vast open sky and the roaming wildlife on Montana but that is why we often as humans just need a moment to breath, a minute to catch a breath and a week to wind down. At Burnt Out Lodge, no one knows that better than they do. This lodge sleeps over 20 people so when a week to dedicate to a group of women scrapbooking or quilting, a man’s fishing expedition, or a family reunion, it is the best place to be in.

Burnt Out Lodge is on a quiet and remote setting with majestic mountains as its backdrop. With plenty of parking for the whole group, this has enormous amounts of space for large groups. 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms make this spacially concievable for any type of event but it’s the commericial kitchen, large dining area, large recreation room and wrap around covered porch. Wedding parties especially love the themed rooms and hillside garden path for photos.


The owners Ruth and Blick Range know what comfort means and what the resort can truly mean to you as they were born and raised on ranches their whole lives. Part of vacation means not having to pack the whole house in a car or rv and make do with what you can pack. They have truly thought of things that make your stay easier such as a furnished kitchen for all of your large group needs, WIFI, Laundry room, linens, dvd player, pack and play for children, homemade quilts and more. Did we mention that they made it handicap accessible so everyone can enjoy this lovely ranch for whatever the occasion may be?


Don’t need such a large space? They are willing to rent out for smaller sized groups, just ask! You may contact the owners to ask any questions, check out more photos or videos of the area by clicking though to this link. 


Your Future Self Wants a Vacation

Studies Show That We All Need Vacations

We have all been there – when your schedule is so full that by the end of the day you wonder how you even did it. The economic challenges in America have encouraged workers to work even more. But research indicates that a break from every-day stress cannot be ignored.

The famous Framingham Heart Study found that a woman who vacations once every six years or less is eight times more likely to suffer from a chronic heart disease or a heart attack when compared to a woman who takes two or more vacations a year. Elain Eaker, co-author of the study states, “It shows how the body reacts to a lifestyle of stress, this is real evidence that vacations are important to your physical health.”

Another study at the University of Pittsburgh Mind-Body Center asked 1,399 participants how often they preformed leisure activities. The findings showed a direct relationship between physical and mental health and how often participants engaged in things that they enjoyed. Lowered stress levels, a slimmer waist, lowered blood pressure, and positive emotions can all be contributed to participants engaging in enjoyable activities.

It’s time we all take some time for ourselves. You don’t just want a vacation, studies show you need it. Over time, your weekend getaways and exciting vacation weeks will pay off. Not only will you see health improvements, expect a better mentality. Having something positive to look forward is satisfying.

Reading, biking, yoga, kayaking, skiing, what do you love? Take time to enjoy it!
