The Lion Head Cabin provided solace and inspiration to award-winning novelist and screenwriter William “Gatz” Hjortsberg, who lived here on a full and part-time basis for more than 33 years. Gatz felt a deep connection to the wild and spent countless hours writing, hiking the local trails and fishing the blue-ribbon waters of the Boulder River. The large rock outcropping on Mount Baker above the cabin, known as the “Lion’s Head”, gives the cabin its distinctive name. The property, bordered to the south & east by the Gallatin Nation Forest, provides easy walking access to the Boulder River that flows under the nearby spectacular Natural Bridge Falls and continues on for miles in both directions. To the north & west, a large working ranch provides a private setting, without a house in sight. The sweeping and rugged +/- 28-acre landscape bestows spectacular views of the Boulder River Valley in every direction and is home to many species of wildlife. Fiberoptic Internet Service on site.
