Overview

About the property

Studio Cabin queen log bed + futon couch, 1 Bath, Designed for 2 (Sleeps 2-4)

Historic hand-hewn Log Studio Cabin Rental nestled in a 5 acre organic cherry orchard with outstanding Flathead Lake views. Fully restored with antique furnishings. The cabin is located 15 miles south of Bigfork. The cabin is not located on the water, but is conveniently located about 1/2 mile from the Yellow Bay State Park. (Approx 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk) Designed for 2 people, this 400 square foot log cabin rental can accommodate up to 4 guests.

The great Covered Porch has rustic log posts that frame the incredible Flathead Lake and Wild Horse Island views. It is a short drive (or walk) to the Yellow Bay State Park, public beach and boat ramp. Peaceful and private in the Flathead Valley of Northwest Montana.

Built in 1932, this log cabin was hand hewn from trees taken to clear the surrounding cherry orchards. Built as a homesteader's cabin when the east lake shore was a very remote location with few families living at Yellow Bay, and the only access was via a 2-track dirt road.

The cabin has been completely restored, creating a warm cozy retreat with the charm of a by-gone era. Retaining the original logs, floors, windows and aged patina were very important, while adding all the modern amenities one would expect.

The cabin has a queen size log bed as well as a lay-down, futon-style couch and wood stove. Fully equipped kitchen & bath, and a covered porch with gas barbecue overlooking Flathead Lake. There is no tv or phone, which suits most guests just fine. But we do have wireless internet, and cell service is available.

We hope that you enjoy this little piece of Montana history. It is a very special place to us and to all our visitors from around the world.

Loved the quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as advertised. I chose this cabin for our 20th wedding anniversary. We had taken trips in other years to city's and adventures but I deliberately chose this one for it's promise of quiet and rest. And it was perfect! We stayed three nights during the off season, early December. We spent time together with a fire in the wood stove and remembered why we had began this journey together 20 years ago. The cabin had everything we needed for simple meals and quiet times. In the afternoons we would drive to Big Fork for some entertainment and dinning. Thanks for peace and quiet and relaxation.

True relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was great! My husband and I had plans of doing all sorts of fun things at Flathead Lake, but found ourselves just hanging around the cabin almost the entire time and relaxed which is exactly what we needed. It is easy to sit back here. The owners take such pride in the cabin, it is a special place! We would love to come back again!
