Bull Lake cabin description

This Amish-built log cabin is located right on Payne Creek on the western flank of the Cabinet Mountains. It includes a fully-equipped kitchen and bath, living room, and a large sleeping loft accessed by a spiral staircase. Also included are wireless internet and DVD/VHS player and library.

The 30 acre property is adjacent to the National Forest Service, and has over a mile of hiking trails through lush cedar-hemlock forest. Elk, deer, moose, black bears, and bald eagles are among many wild visitors to our property. A beautiful 60 foot waterfall on Payne Creek is just a 30 minute walk east into the National Forest Service.

Scenic Bull Lake is a half mile west, and boating and swimming access is available at Dorr Skeels National Forest Campground three miles northwest. The Bull River, just five miles south, has excellent trout fishing. The area has great hunting for elk, deer, moose, and turkey. There are several nearby trails into the Cabinet Mountain Wilderness area with access to beautiful glacial lakes.

Other nearby attractions include the lush old-growth cedar forest at Ross Creek Cedars Scenic area (eight miles west) and Kootenai Falls (18 miles northeast) which are the largest waterfalls between the Cascades and the Rockies. There are local cross country skiing trails. Nearby downhill ski resorts include Schweitzer Mountain (65 miles west) and Turner Mountain (50 miles north). Lake Pend Oreille is just 40 miles west in Idaho. The nearest major airport is in Spokane, Washington 140 miles west. Glacier National Park is a three hour drive east.

Each year there are three to five great traditional outdoor country music festivals at the Halfway House bar and grill just down the road.

The area is a favorite scenic bicycle tour destination. It is home to the annual Scenic Tour of the Kootenai River (STOKR) in May and the Cycle Hard for Education (CHaFE 150) tour.

There is great rafting on the Kootenai and Yaak rivers as well as seasonal rafting on several other streams. We can provide transportation and logistical support for raft trips.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I fell in love with this area while working as a geologist for the US Geological Survey in 1978. Amazingly when I returned looking for property to purchase in 2001, I found that this beautiful quiet secluded corner of Montana had somehow remained a wonderful well-kept secret.

Why the Owner Chose Bull Lake:
I chose this 30 acre property because it contained a beautiful diverse conifer forest and snow-fed stream which bisects it. It affords privacy for both my home on the eastern edge of the property and the visitors to the cabin on the western edge. Being next to National Forest Service land was also a must!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Great views and a waterfall just off the property to the east! Centrally located for easy day trips to the Pend Oreille area in Idaho and the Kootenai Valley. Lots to see and do!
