Kalispell cabin description

Relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of this lakeshore vacation retreat tucked away in the northwest corner of Montana. This spacious A-frame cabin sits on Lavon Lake located between Kalispell and Libby. Glacier National Park is located 80 miles away, perfect for day trips. The owners welcome children, and have made it comfortable for your stay.

Enjoy your morning coffee while watching the geese and ducks from the deck or living room. This spring-fed lake boasts crystal clear water is perfect for swimming, fishing and small boat recreating. The cabin has a stationary dock as well as a swim dock. A rowboat is available to guests and included in the rental price. Lavon Lake is a no-wake lake and is great for swimming. Crystal Lake has a public boat launch and is right next to Lavon Lake and connected by a navicable waterway. Crystal Lake allows tubing, wake boarding and water skiing. There are also boat launches on numerous other lakes within 15 minutes of the cabin. This area is a recreation mecca with countless hiking, mountain biking and fishing opportunities. The nearby Kootenai River is a world-class fishery and holds trophy rainbow trout. Guided trips are available on a daily basis. Roasting marshmallows in the evening at the fire pit by the shoreline caps off a fun-filled day.

The cabin includes a full kitchen, one bathroom, and two bedrooms and will sleep eight when you use the hide-a-bed in the large living room. Master bedroom has a king size bed. Meals can be enjoyed in the dining room or on the large, multi-level deck. A washer and dryer are on premise as well. We provide Wi-Fi at our cabin. Nearby amenities include Happy’s Inn and Café and the Kicking Horse Saloon and Eatery. Sorry, no smoking is allowed.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: Doug and I are both in the health care fields. Doug is an optometrist and I am a physical therapist. We both love to fly fish. We were born and raised in eastern Montana and we love the outdoors. Katy is a great swimmer and like me, she enjoys downhill skiing. I especially like to travel and we try to take a trip somewhere every year. Doug enjoys exploring the mountains around the cabin on the 4 wheeler.

              Why the Owner Chose Kalispell:
              Back in 2003 we found this cabin and we both liked it right away. I spent many weekends at an A-frame cabin on a ski hill owned by friends of my family while growing up and so this cabin feels very comfortable and like 'home'. We especially liked the gently sloping entrance into the water as Katy was very young when we bought the cabin. We both felt it was easy to get to, not far from our home, and obviously had many recreational opportunities in every direction.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Our family appreciates the quiet at the cabin, and time to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The lake is spring fed and is especially good for swimming because of the warmer temperatures and we all love to swim. Spending time here 'recharges our batteries' and lets us reconnect with each other.
