Folks should always do their research when looking to stay here in Montana.

When people are traveling around Montana, they will typically rent out hotels. The alternatives are either VRBO or Airbnb to find rooms or households that fit within their budget. The other option is camping in an RV, trailer, or tent. What if you want the feel of camping but have a house to hang out in?

Here's your answer.

If you don't know, is a wonderful sight to see what the United States Forest Service offers. There are campsites, but the real prize is the fire lookout cabins.

These fire lookout cabins are typically near peaks of mountains and deep in the backcountry. Getting to these cabins might take a little work to get to these locations, but they are worth the trip.

Of course, as always, you can't please everyone.

The Garnet Mountain Fire Lookout is close to Bozeman and beloved by many locals who have stayed there in the summer or fall. Some folks have rented out these cabins and got a little more than they bargained for.

Here are some of the most hilarious and ridiculous reviews of this fire lookout.

Bring an ATV. It's a three mile hike and it destroyed my legs.

Did you think these cabins could be reached by your car?

This is the only thing the US Government is good for. Props

I think someone was having a bad day.

The reception is awful. I only had 3G and couldn't post anything until I was in town.

These cabins are a perfect deterrent to staying off your phone. I think they missed the point.

If you want to rent out these fire-lookout cabins at any time of the year, you need to be ready for the commitment to get in and out of these locations. You will need to trek in your water, cut some firewood, and have lanterns ready.

These cabins are remote but will have the best scenery you could ever imagine.
