Dave and Sherry Meador invite you to the Missouri River House & River Front Cabin in the Chestnut Valley of Cascade, Montana. Come sit on the deck and look through the cottonwoods to the Missouri River as it flows gently by or cast a line to rising fish during the evening caddis hatch. Watch the eagles fly from their nest and perch on a distant limb keeping a watchful eye on the waterfowl below. Imagine yourself, fishing, floating, biking, hiking, horseback riding or just relaxing on the deck. From the Missouri River House & River Front Cabin, you can enjoy all the benefits of fishing a blue ribbon trout stream without having to deal with the pressures of the more popular stretches of the Upper Missouri. Dave, a Missouri River Orvis endorsed fly fishing guide for nine years, can let you know what the fish are biting while you're there and who can guide you to the best spots. Enjoy the peaceful surroundings while being only 10 minutes from Cascade, a small Montana town with grocery store, cafe, and bar. You're 30 minutes from Craig, the fly fishing center of the Missouri. In addition, you're only 30 minutes from Great Falls and an hour from Helena.

If you want to take advantage of the great fishing in other parts of Montana, Dave guides on the Smith, Blackfoot, Dearborn, and Sun Rivers. If he's not available, he can hook you up with a guided trip through Paul Roos Outfitters. If you get tired of fishing or want to try another activity you can float the river, hike, bike along the back roads or along the beautiful recreation road, bird watch, horseback ride or soak up the sun and a good book. Just a short drive away are the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center along the Lewis & Clark trail and Charles M. Russell Museum in Great Falls. There's also the Montana Historical Society, Archie Bray Foundation and the Holter Art Gallery in Helena.
