the Artist's Refuge at Thunderhead
116 Thunderhead Lane
Highway 89 bisects the Lewis and Clark National Forest between Great Falls, MT and White Sulphur Springs, MT. The small town of Monarch lies on HWY 89 approx. half way between the two.
The only road going east out of Monarch on HWY 89 is a gravel road known as Hughesville Road but it is unmarked. Follow this road approximately 12.5 miles (staying left at the only major fork about 10 miles or so in).
After a nice green house the next drive off to the right (gated about 150 ft. up the drive...it says Thunderhead on it) is ours. If you come to the fork you have come a bit too far. Turn around and take the first drive on your left.
