About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to our Northfork Cabin! The home is a newly-constructed (2010) Appalachian-style log-sided home of 2000 square feet, 29X40 with two covered 8 foot deep front and rear porches and a 3/4 loft. It is located on a one (1) acre parcel facing the North Fork of the Flathead River, a National Wild and Scenic River corridor and looks across the river into Glacier National Park. It is truly a unique getaway for those seeking solitude, privacy and the convenient access to nearby wilderness and national park recreational opportunities. Our cabin comfortably accommodates four (4) people maximum. No additional non-contracted guests are permitted.

We are 15 minutes from West Glacier, 10 minutes from Columbia Falls, 20 minutes from Whitefish and Whitefish Mountain Ski Area and 30 minutes from Kalispell and Glacier Park International Airport. Shopping for anything from groceries to antiques is available in these nearby trendy, Western-friendly communities.

Outstanding wildlife viewing opportunities await you here. We have frequent observations of elk, deer, black and grizzly bears, moose, wolves, river otter, beaver, coyotes, wolverines and, of course, all manner of waterfowl, raptors and songbirds like, golden and bald eagles, kingfishers, osprey, tundra swans, geese, mergansers, barred and great-horned owls, ruffed grouse, red-tailed hawks and many others. This is prime wildlife habitat made only more enjoyable by the convenient location of the cabin adjacent to the scenic river corridor.

Our favorite time of year is Fall with September and October being the optimum times to visit. Fall colors are incredible, Larch trees are turning color, wildlife is abundant, crowds are gone, Park and local facilities are open, bugs are gone, trails are open and the surrounding area is very quiet. Consider booking a Fall rental!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My husband and I are Montana natives and have spent our lifetimes surrounded by the mountains of Northwest Montana. We believe that we are at the center of one of the most spectacularly beautiful areas to vacation. We designed our cabin as a haven for those seeking either adventure or relaxation...or both! It is a convenient jumping off place for nearby wilderness or national park recreation. Our primary residence is nearby Kalispell, MT. I am a registered nurse and my husband is a retired teacher/library director/retired seasonal Glacier Park ranger.

Why the Owner Chose Columbia Falls, MT, USA:
The property has been in our family for the past thirty five years. We recently constructed the cabin to take advantage of the scenery adjacent to the river and as a weekend retreat and retirement home. We purposely maintain the property in a pristine and natural setting to correspond with the scenic river corridor believing that our guests will appreciate the simplicity that we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We enjoy the diverse wildlife viewing on the river corridor and the unsurpassed quiet associated with the private setting combined with all the modern amenities.
