About the Property

Home 4 bedrooms(sleeps 10 on beds) full futon couch 1 bath + outhouse Sleeps 12

The Cozy Conifer Cabin is a special place surrounded by a forest of mature Dougas Fir, Ponderosa Pine and Western Larch. This Missoula Montana Log Cabin rentals vacation home was built from pine trees from the small meadow where the home now sits. It is only 10 minutes off convenient I-90 but privately located on 10 acres of conifers. It’s so close to Missoula (25 miles) that you can take advantage of shopping and dining but return to the woods. Deer and birds call the property home and sometimes elk or the occasional black bear will wander through. There are hiking trails on the property that lead to a trail on the bordering Montana State Forest which leads up to the Lolo National Forest. There are 5 seasonal creeks and wildflowers galore April to July.

Upstairs the Missoula Montana log cabin rentals vacation home has 3 rooms; two bedrooms and a den between them with a large library. One of the bedrooms has a door and stairs leading to the outside. Downstairs is the kitchen with windows looking into the woods and a nice living room with two large picture windows facing the forest. Also there is a large bathroom with claw foot tub and separate shower. The back of the house has utility room(washer and dryer), and mudroom(with desk) off the back entrance. Off the living room, there is a large deck to enjoy the smell of the outdoors, wildlife, sounds of birds, seasonal creeks and wind blowing though the trees.

Car: Necessary

Conifer Drive is the last residential area before the Lolo National Forest and you can bike or ride right from the property down 1/2 mile of Conifer Dr. and then you are at Six Mile Road leading up to the Lolo National Forest and to the Reservation Divide. If you like to ATV or mountain bike this is a prime spot, especially for downhill mountain biking. You can bike, drive, or ATV up Six Mile Road or Edith Peak Road to the 6500 foot Reservation Divide or to the top of Edith Peak. There are views of the Missoula, Mission and Ninemile Valleys and snow capped Mission and Bitteroot Mountains. It's all downhill from 6500 feet back down to 3000 feet.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I run a mail order business in Sherwood Oregon but always wanted to start a Missoula Montana log cabin rentals business where travelers can stay in a SPECTACULAR natural setting to unwind and enjoy nature. It's rare to find nice forest on acreage near Missoula since the Missoula Valley is semi-arid.

Why the Owner Chose Huson, MT, USA:
We moved treecycle from Missoula to a cabin in the woods in 1999 for clean air and to escape the city. We always wanted a Missoula Montana area log cabin and this place was perfect. We moved to Oregon in 2008 to be closer to suppliers but we visit. But since we don't live there any more it has become a perfect location to start a Missoula Montana log cabin rentals business. It's real close to Missoula but like another world in the conifer forest. It's such a special place it will be passed on to my son Forrest and hopefully his children.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Wildlife, hiking, wildflowers and sounds of 5 seasonal creeks April to July. This Missoula Montana area log cabin vacation rentals home is a place in the woods to enjoy solitude but is really close to Missoula for shopping and dining. The property, logged 100+ years ago has transformed from an overgrown forest to park like after a decade of thinning dead trees to stimulate growth of the larger trees and is now prime wildlife habitat.
