Even though it's a nice cabin, cute and cozy, it's not suited for us. Spiral staircase was much too narrow even for me at 5'2, and the upstairs bed too small for my husband. Also, we thought it was waterfront, but it was not. We could only get to the water at the boat launch because campsites were filled.

Wonderful Cabin on Kootenai River

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our visit to fly fish on the Kootenai River. Rita has the cabin well stocked with everything that we needed. It was very clean and absolutely adorable. Would definitely stay here again.

That cabin is absolutely amazing not only do you get the beautiful scenery you can walk across the road and fish at the river as a bonus the owners are incredibly sweet and very helpful for anything you need at any time thank you Rita for everything and accommodatingredients my family =). Since I live in Libby now I will definitely be renting that cabin out for me my husband as a bonus honeymoon getaway.

Great Location!

  • 3 of 5

Our stay at Heron's Roost was a great getaway for the weekend. It is in a convenient location to a large outdoor playground! The cabin was nice although we have an infant and it did provide some challenges to get her to sleep/stay asleep since the only bedroom space was a loft and open to the rest of the cabin. Simple accommodations. Nice and clean. We especially enjoyed the outdoor deck for eating and relaxing in the warmth of May.

perfect cozy winter hideaway

  • 5 of 5

i had an idea of how i wanted to spend the holidays and this cabin was exactly it: quiet, secluded but not creepily so, beautiful views, and warm and cozy inside. you can spend hours reading on the couch while sunlight flows in over the mountains. the river is just across the road and a great place to take a walk in the snow. there's even a pond nearby for ice skating! i felt perfectly at home for two weeks and when i got a bit restless, libby was just a short drive away, glacier just a couple hours. the area's great for exploring, i would love to come back in the summer too! rita was a fantastic host -- very friendly and accommodating. thanks for the perfect vacation!
