Property description

This is a beautifully decorated, fully refurbished log cabin that was built in the 1930's and has most modern conveniences. It has a full kitchen with everything necessary for cooking at home, one bedroom with extra long twin beds, one bath with shower, a demand water heater so there is always hot water, and has an incredible queen log bed in the great room. It has a twin size sleeper sofa in the sitting room.

It is situated on a secluded, forested, 3 acre site a short distance from the Missouri River, along Cox Creek Lane. Cox Creek is a small tributary of the Missouri River that supports a healthy number of small brook trout, and runs through the property. There is also a picturesque pond on the property next to the creek.

There are many opportunities for outdoor activities, and the cities of Great Falls (35 miles) and Helena (40 miles) offer many other types of activities to please anyone. The restaurants and cafes nearby, while quaint, offer a range from 'country cookin'' to gourmet feasts.

The Missouri River in this area is a 'blue ribbon' trout fishery and there are numerous outfitters to supply the most discerning angler with top quality tackle, equipment, guides, and even advice.

This is a truly unique property and offers all the opportunities for an exceptionally pleasant experience for couples, families, fishermen, or hunters.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My wife is a retired educator and I'm a retired Land surveyor. We lived in Southern California most of our lives and stumbled onto this property while on an RV trip to Alaska in 2004.

Why the Owner Chose Craig:
In our opinion it is one of the most beautiful locations in the Missouri River Canyon and has 360 degree views of the beautiful scenery. The cabin is one of the most charming and inviting I have ever seen, and I decided to put in a trout pond shortly after we purchased the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We have unparalleled beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife including bighorn sheep, whitetail & mule deer, black bears, bald & golden eagles, and many others. The fishing, kayaking, and floating on the Missouri is fantastic, and we are only 35 miles from Great Falls and 45 miles from Helena, both of which offer shopping and other amenities.
