The log cabin features a rustic but elegant charm, with vaulted ceilings, large windows and a beautiful river rock fireplace. Most enjoyable is the large deck overlooking the lake.

Quiet Fall escape
Quiet Fall escape
This was better than advertised. Very quiet and peaceful stay during a mid October week. Non-motorized lake was a plus. We used the canoe and paddled our 5 year old around the lake with her stuffed animals. Some of them even swam! The owners are dog friendly so we could bring our big old dog. We had an evening fire in the outside fire pit and then after seeing the stars come out we moved inside to play some games by the fireplace inside. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen looked over the living room and made it easy to prepare meals and be in touch with everyone else. It was worth every penny and we will be back maybe even this winter to xc ski out the back door. Thanks for sharing your cabin, and it really has a cabin feel with modern amenities, rather than some of the newer and over done homes in the woods that have been built recently.

Owner response: We are so glad you had a great time! It is a special place for us to! Scott and Debra Smith
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the cabin to have everything we needed. The peace and quiet was truly unmatchable. The weather wasn't great but that didn't seem to bother anyone as we all enjoyed the outdoor fire pit, the indoor fireplace, the horseshoe pit and awesome deck. The cabin was fantastic and had plenty of room for our two families. While alluring, the photos on the website did not quite capture the true beauty and peacefulness of the area and the comforts of the cabin. Truly a beautiful place!! We definitely want to plan to stay there again. Thank you for the wonderful vacation.

Our family left the east coast in August to travel to Swan Valley for a vacation and wedding, which were both perfect. However, staying at your cabin was the frosting on the cake! We swam, we kayaked, we canoed, and so enjoy the deck, the peacefulness, and the quiet..a heaven away from it all. The cabin was so comfortable for the whole family. I am left only asking, "When can I return???" Thank you, thank you, Scott and family, for sharing your wonderful home. Your friends from Marblehead.

Owner response: Carol, We are glad you had such a great time! You are welcome anytime. The Smiths
It was a great time and the cabin was even better than expected. We had a lot of fun canoeing and kayaking on the very peaceful lake. Great fire pit to sit around and roast marshmallows. The deck was the best part - we loved to sit and relax. I think the dogs may have had even more fun. They were pooped! My dog Bridger grew pretty fond of Lupe (the dog down a couple houses). We really enjoyed ourselves and the house was stocked with everything you could think of from blender to electric griddle to BBQ.

Comment Text: PROS: Fabulous! You want to live there. Enjoyed everything...swimming, hiking, easy travel (1.5hr to Glacier Park with a stop at Big Fork(lots of artists and galleries.) Golfing at Seeley Lake (about 30 min drive) The nights are cool...family time around the fire pit and just let the evening pass...clear sky with all the stars you can't see from the city...saw many satellites pass over...the cabin is very comfortable with plenty of room...could go on and on... had a great, relaxing time... many opportunities to practice your photography - deer in the yard in early morning and evening CONS: cell phone reception is spotty, no traffic noise, your neighbor is more than 10 ft away, people are always smiling, birds and squirrels are always around, you feel like going for a walk, then taking a nap ... did I say CONS? Can’t really think of any.

What a spectacular setting! Nestled on a private lake at the foot of the Swan Mountains. Very quiet and peaceful. Plenty of wildlife. Recreation opportunities for snowmobiling in winter, hiking and boating at nearly Lindberg Lake in summer. No motor boats allowed on Cygnet Lake means peace and quiet but bring your canoe!

We love this place!! Montana magic in a gorgeous tranquil setting. Cygnet Lake is just the right size for an evening canoe voyage as the sun sets on the Mission Range. There are only a handful of cabins on this lake and teh few that are there when we have been there are more like neighbors and friends rather than strangers competing for your peace and quiet. Fires by the lake around the big ol' firepit and a game of haunted charades are a favorite. Everyone goes for a dip in the summer months and between diving contests and marathon bobbing it is hard to dry off. Great place and close to all kinds of adventure and scenery that will knock your socks off and put em in the drawer.

Summertime was great with swimming off the dock, canoe and kayak, evening campfires. Very peaceful and relaxing. Lots of hiking trails,wildlife,great scenery,boating nearby at Lindberg or Holland lakes. Cabin has 3 queen beds and 2 twins in loft, very adequate. Nice just sitting on the deck, soaking up the sun, and reading a book.

About the owner: Howdy, We are the Smiths from Missoula Mt, just 1 1/2 hours drive from our cabin! As you can see, we raise a few puppies. Anyway, we are certain you will love our cabin just as much as we do. It really is a little piece of heaven. Scott Deb Connor and Jordan
Why the Owner Chose Seeley Lake:
We have always loved the wilderness and the Swan Valley. 32 years ago my wife and I had a picnic on this very spot next to the lake, and she said if this ever comes up for sale, we are buying it! Thank goodness I was a Realtor, as just one year later, I noticed it came on the market. And here we are.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Swimming in the lake, reading a good book by the fireplace, hiking right out the back door to national forest servce land, enjoying the evening on the deck, a great campfire, enjoying the peace and quiet, feeding the stellar and gray jays, watching the deer, hiking to wilderness lakes, dinner at the Hungry bear, hiking to Holland falls. Just plain relaxing.
