Martin City cottage description

This quaint cottage is a cozy place to base your next vacation. Come for a rejuvenating, UNPLUGGED getaway. Lovely 2 bedroom cottage that sleeps 4 comfortably. 12 minutes from West Glacier National Park and 30 minutes from Hungry Horse Reservoir.

This updated home has slate floors in the entryway, solid wood floors in the kitchen, and original wood floors in the living room. The living room has a gas fireplace to take the chill out of the cool evenings. A large covered patio overlooks Abbot Creek and is the perfect place to 'wine' down after a day of sightseeing in Glacier Park, hiking, climbing, fishing or visiting Hungry Horse Dam a short 2 miles from the Cottage. You may even spend a day shopping in Whitefish, Kalispell, or attend a play at the Bigfork Summer Theatre.. These are all within an hour of the Cottage.
The Cottage has private off-street parking large enough to accommodate a boat and trailer for use on the many area lakes.

The property has 70 feet of beautiful Abbot Creek running along its southern border. Abbot Creek is a year-round babbling mountain stream that can soothe your stress and rejuvenate your soul.

This home sits on the original homestead property and belonged to the owner's Great Aunt who was the daughter of the original homesteaders of Martin City. Martin City is the small town nearest the property. The owner's Father helped set the first turbine in the historic Hungry Horse Dam which is nearby.

Enjoy a scenic 12-minute drive to Glacier National Park; the Middle Fork of the Flathead river is a short hike from the cottage. Whitefish, Kalispell, and Columbia Falls are all within a 15-40 minute drive.

2 bedrooms with queen beds
Bathroom with full tub shower
Gas fireplace in the living room
Private yard with fire ring
70 feet of Abbot Creek frontage

              I was raised in this area and we hiked the trails in the Park, we climbed mountains, fished the streams and rivers, kayaked, rafted and swam the many rivers and lakes of this area. We camped, we picked wild huckleberries in season, gathered mushrooms, and wild raspberries and service berries for eating. We photographed the wildlife, explored the mountain trails and the lookouts situated on the mountain peaks. We drove the backroads to remote camping places and viewed the wildlife found along the way.

              About: Abbott Creek Cottage belonged to my great Aunt Rose, the daughter of some of the original homesteaders inside the Canyon. It sits on part of the original homestead. The Cottage has been updated many times but the living room is the original cabin. My father set the first turbine in Hungry Horse Dam just 3 miles from the Cottage. As a little girl my brothers and sisters and I would fish in Abbott Creek and sail our paper boats on feast days... Many a summer afternoon was spent walking the Creek to the Middle Fork of the Flathead River and picnicking along the way! A rough trek by any standards! I was raised in Martin City, one of twelve siblings! My parents owned a grocery store, meat market and lockers near mile marker #144! The new highway took our home and store.
