Property description

The Sha Bear Retreat is nestled in the mountains along the Yaak River of the NW corner of Montana. From Libby, follow Hwy 2 West until you see the Yaak River Road [or Hwy 508]. Go 9.2 miles then turn Right on 'SHABEAR WAY'. Follow the long driveway down and around [1/4 mile] until you pull up in front of a large Log Home sitting up on a slight hill.

The retreat, sits at 2600’ elevation, aver. temp. during the spring through fall is a pleasant 70 degrees, with the hottest months of late July and August {averages about 85-89*} yielding to the coldest months in Jan - Feb. It is truly a delight to splash around in the Yaak River or to hike in the spring and fall, or to snow shoe, snowmobile, or ski during the winter in the annual 7‘+ average snowfall..The Yaak and the Kootenai Rivers are filled with breathtaking views and an abundance of history.

On the other hand, some simply enjoy the peace and serenity that only God and Mother Nature can bring.

Go for a drive to Kalispell where you are at the West entrance to Glacier International Park. Go see the Bear Park! Go see the wonderful ancient glaciers in the park. Driving up “Going to the Sun Road”, you can stop and take pictures of park slopes and wildlife that lives there.

Or you can drive down river to the Yaak Falls just 2 miles away! The Kootenai Falls with a suspended Bridge is where the movie “A River Wild “ was filmed; starring Kevin Bacon and Meryl Streep { I was sitting in the river fishing when they filmed the movie with helicopters flying above, it was fun to watch}. The movie “Always” was also filmed here with Holly Hunter and Richard Dreyfus at Bad Medicine Mt /Bull Lake. You never know whose path you will cross!!!

You will never experience anything more peaceful than sitting under the stars at night, with a campfire watching Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) in Aug-Sep.

Relax on the Yaak River in back of our log home and watch the Golden and Bald Eagles fly above your head! You will never want to leave !

Owner info

About the owner: We are retired Military and currently run a business out of our home. We counsel people on their relationships & we are Life Coaches. We love living in the National Forest & to walk out on our balcony and hear the river rushing by is amazing to us. We try to have our coffee on the deck as much as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Troy:
Living high in the mountains of the extreme North West corner of Montana has always been our dream place. We have always lived in the mountains but always wanted to be remote. My husband RunningBear and I bought our log home in 2002 and then built the Amish Log Cabin rental 2 years later. We wanted to be able to have extra space for family and friends to come and visit and have their own privacy. Every once in awhile we go into Sandpoint, Idaho to have a 'people fix' and then are sooo glad to go back home. It's kinda funny actually. We have never wanted to live anywhere else. The beauty of the Yaak Valley is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been & we have lived all over the country.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We love the sound of the river streaming by everyday. We love the sound of all the Eagles screetching flying above looking for food. We love walking out amongst the tall pines, hiking the trails, fishing, riding horses or ATV's.
