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.

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.
Erich Degner purchased this cabin in 1999
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.
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.
We loved the no frills, rustic cabin. The road in is terrible. The cabin has three queen beds upstairs and a queen futon and bunk beds on the main floor with very squeaky floors. The kitchen was small and functional. No phone or wifi. Great home base for fishing or hunting trips or just for getting away in the wilds of Montana. Plenty of deer and grouse in the yard to keep us entertained.
We are travelling with a 4 and 6 year old as well as a dog. We thought the location and the porch would be nice for exploring Missoula, visiting with friends, and having a campfire at night. Upon driving into the property though we started to have reservations. The back entrance was covered in mouse poop and there were wasps all around the porch, which was in disrepair. The inside was dirty, the furnishing and bedding were old and raggedy, and there were more wasps and ants. The one room upstairs with an a/c unit had exposed wires and a hole in the window screen. Wasps were nesting just outside this window and came streaming out when we moved around. There were no railings on the stairs, broken glass and trash around the property and a dirty, wet wash cloth in the bathroom. We felt unsafe and uncomfortable in this location, especially as there is no phone and it is out of cell range. Even though it was late and we had driven all day, we left and went into Missoula to find a hotel. Very disappointed with this vrbo experience.
My family spent a long weekend at the cabin to attend a family reunion in the area. The cabin was fully stocked with all we needed. We played horse shoes, hiked in the National Forest, grilled out on the deck, and saw lots of wildlife. Beautiful place. We hope to return.
We stayed at this magical cabin for a week the end of July in preparation for our son's wedding on the 27th of July outside of Alberton. We held the wedding rehearsal dinner BBQ on this property and everyone had a fabulous time playing horseshoes, crochet and visiting. I would suggest bringing your own BBQ if you plan to cook for very many as the BBQ provided is briquet. Also Very tiny refrigerator but we made due with coolers and lots of ice. The children believed the fairies lived in the forest and loved going on adventures. Beautiful cool & quiet Montana evenings that we enjoyed with guitars and singing! Lots of neighboring wildlife. Thank you to our host! We'll be back!
We were a little nervous renting a place without looking at it, especially with two young children. But the Cozy Conifer Cabin was truly perfect for our family. It was clean and well maintained. You can feel the love and time the owner has put into the place. Not only the cabin, but the land around. We found plenty of trails and bridges that were perfect for the children to walk on. When we were there, the seasonal creeks were dry, but we still had fun exploring the dried up beds.
The land backs up to state land and one day we went on a picnic lunch/hike. The owner was very helpful in letting me know what to expect. Our family hopes to rent the place again. We made some great memories there!
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.
