Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I am a cancer survivor who has practically retired from a position in the Technology Leasing Industry. I enjoy people, family, hunting, fishing and NASCAR. Theresa is a retired master hairstylist and avid baker.

Why the Owner Chose Essex, MT, USA:
We are only 56 miles from the Kalispell Airport and 20 min.'s away from either entrance to Glacier National Park and a train station, the Izaak Walton, for Trail Rides, Cross Crountry Skiing, is located just 5 miles away with car rentals available. We are also close to the Continental Divide, Many Glacier and Waterton National Park. This cabin is located in the heart of the Flathead Valley. You can also enjoy Winter activities, Skiing and Snowshoeing, Glacier National Park is a great place to get out & enjoy the solitude. Most of Glacier's roads are closed in the wintertime, but that's ok, cause snow makes for ideal ski routes. you can still enjoy Going to the Sun Road, Lake McDonald Lodge, Polebridge and Autumn Creek Trail.The Isaak Walton Inn boasts more than 30km of groomed trails at Essex. in Whitefish you have skiing, and cross country trails.Bigfork is an awesome place to visit as well, in the winter or summer seasons. Don't forget Snow mobiling! Ice Fishing!.. in the summer-Play Golf at the Whitefish Country Club, East Glacier and West Glacier! The list goes on and on and on....

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Friendly people, peacefullness with breath taking scenery all around you. We have too many activities to mention. We call this Montana Cabin our Spiritual Regrouping Haven. We find that when we are in the mountain, We are at peace. The air is pure, the water is pure, what more could you ask for? We just Love it here and know that you will tooo!
