Property description

This property is a warm, National Park style, private lodge with unique views of Glacier's jagged peaks and is available just two weeks per summer for weekly rentals only. Even visiting locals are surprised by the superior views from this spectacular estate called Cannonview, named after Cannon Mountain seen from the living room window. Constructed in 2002, your vacation destination is an architect-designed log lodge, custom-constructed of hand-peeled douglas fir trees from British Columbia.

Perched on 20 acres of wilderness bordering thousands of acres of US Forest Service, this warm, casual setting offers endless enjoyment of rustic northwest Montana. Perfect for a corporate board retreat, a multiple-family gathering, or even an intimate weekend, Cannonview is located 20 minutes from Glacier National Park, 60 minutes from Canada, 45 minutes from Kalispell, 60 minutes from Bigfork and Flathead Lake. You can decide how much privacy you want during your vacation here.

Relax outdoors in the oak rocking chairs on the extensive porch or indoors on the fine leather furniture in the living room. Regardless of group size, enjoy meals in the generous open kitchen/dining area connected to the great room. Treat Cannonview as your outpost for hiking/touring expeditions into the finest National Park just minutes away. For outdoor enthusiasts or those seeking a private getaway, we are confident you will be more than satisfied with your lodging choice and welcome your questions before making reservations. The Owners are hard-working professionals with masters' degrees and are parents of two wonderful boys. Their conscientious diligence translates to insuring that your expectations will be met during your stay at Cannonview Lodge.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are the Smith Family and are the proud owners of Cannonview Lodge near Glacier National Park, Montana. Stephen and Jodi Smith met each other while working at Swiftcurrent Motor Inn in Glacier National Park and it was their longtime dream to design and contruct Cannonview Lodge as close to the Park as possible. We know your stay here will be enjoyable whether you are a first time visitor of a returning regular.

Why the Owner Chose West Glacier:
Glacier, Glacier, Glacier! Cannonview Lodge was inspired by the historic lodges found in Glacier National Park. Approximately 3 miles from the Park boundary, the property shares the ecosystem of Glacier National Park and often wildlife may be viewed from or near the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Unique views of Glacier National Park, arguably the best in the area! Ever heard of the Highline Trail that is carved into the Continental Divide? You can see this and dozens of Glacier Park peaks from the living room of Cannonview Lodge.
