Property description

At the foot of Government Mountain in the heart of the Cabinet Wilderness, for rent just to you, is a very private 40-acre wilderness retreat. This magnificent setting, unspoiled, unfenced, home to elk and deer, bordering on National Forest from above and Avista's forest from below, offers a wilderness experience as authentic as any that can be found in America.

Eight vacationers can lodge comfortably in the 1664 sq. ft. solar powered log cabin, equipped with 2 queen-size beds, 2 twins, and sofa bed. The upper story boasts a huge room for kids to play and sleep. The two downstairs bedrooms have magnificent views toward Government Mountain. The vaulted kitchen and living room, each with their six by six foot windows, face south toward the Clark Fork River and the Coeur d'Alene Mountains. Between the kitchen and living room, a wood-burning stove keeps the home warm in the winter. There is WIFI and ethernet connect in living room. TV/DVD player are upstairs in the third bedroom and movies are available for rent at the Atkins convenience store a mile away. There is a small porch in front and a covered porch out the back, accessible directly through the laundry room. 

Hiking, fishing, boating, hunting, and snowmobiling opportunities are abundant. Schweitzer ski resort is an hour away by car. The Ross Creek Giant Cedar Grove is 30 minutes way on highway 56 and, for near by hiking trails the trails website is a good resource. Trout Creek, 25 minutes away, is leading destination for those fishing for Bass and Trout. 

If you are a mushroom hunter, chanterelle and especially boletus are easy to find in April and early May.

For local color, Toby’s Tavern, just across the Clark Fork River in Noxon, is a friendly place where the entire family is welcome to take in hilarious, as well as, profound pioneer memorabilia that adorn its walls.

Daily essentials can be purchased at the Noxon Mercantile or the Aitken's Quick Stop nearby, though we prefer to shop 45 minutes away at the Super Walmart in Sand Point, Idaho. Also, the Mennonite deli on Highway 200 at the Bull River crossing offers the very best in baked items, fresh produce and other food products at reasonable prices.

For a small town, Sand Point, Idaho offers fantastic dinning, shopping and entertainment opportunities many cities would envy. Driving along Highway 200 to Sand Point is breathtaking, flanked by thickly forested mountains, it follows the Clark Fork River and then the Eastern portion of Lake Pend Oreille (pronounced Pon-der-ray), the fifth deepest in the United States with 111 miles of shoreline.
The National Bison range, a scenic one and a half hour drive away, is excellent for viewing bison, pronghorn antelope and other grassland animals in their natural habitat.

The Cabinet Mountains, part of the Rocky Mountains, located in northwest Montana, home to Mule deer, Elk, Moose, Bighorn Sheep, Black bear, Grizzly Bear, and Wolverine, disturbed little by man, is one of the most wild places left in America. Here you will find people friendly, day to day life easy and carefree, but, ultimately, it will be your choice to let seep into your soul the essence of these quiet and pristine experiences that you will find here, which we call our second home, and many revere and dare to call 'God's Country'.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I resently moved to Franklin, Tennessee from California. I have been a software engineer for the past 15 years. Currently, I work for Walmart. I was born and raised in and around San Francisco. I like biking, hiking, and playing scrabble with my wife. We have two sons and a daughter.

Why the Owner Chose Noxon:
This was my primary residence before I moved to Seattle in 2005 and is now my favorite place to take a vacation. I could honestly say that the 2 and 1/2 years I spent here were the best of my life. I found Noxon while driving about the north west. I loved this area best of all for it has amazing natural beauty but no sprawling development, and the friendliest of people who will wave to you from their cars as they pass you by in yours.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace, beauty, and freedom describe this place best. I have seen bear, deer and elk on the property. I love to follow the elk and deer trails up into the mountain behind the property. With no fences anywhere to stop me, I can walk freely below the property all the way to the Clark Fork river. Having had many stressful jobs, coming here, I feel as though I have arrived and need to do nothing but absorb and be contented by the awesome surroundings.
