About the owner: Carroll operates 2 restaurants, and Nancy is retired from General Motors. We love living in Montana, not far from the cabin, which is a second home.
Why the Owner Chose Helena: We bought this home as a private get-away, and for family and friends, and are now opening it up to new friends through VRBO. Carroll is a native Montanan, and Nancy is a native by choice.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: We never tire of the lake views, and watching all the activity, including all types of boating. Wildlife in the area adds to the Montana experience. The large river rock wood-burning fireplace is a real treat on cool evenings.
