About Nancy Moen

Carroll operates 2 restaurants and Nancy is retired from General Motors. We love travel and meeting new friends. We live full time in Montana, not far from our 2 vacation rental homes.

Nancy Moen purchased this House in 2003

Why Nancy Moen chose Lewis and Clark County

We purchased this home, which is near our historic log cabin (VRBO #423121) and our little cabin, (VRBO #483720) to preserve and protect the property. We lived in this house for 8 years, and have now built a smaller home for ourselves on the property. We can't imagine living anywhere else.

What makes this House unique

This is a spacious, very comfortable custom home. Many unique, custom log details. Truly one of a kind. The views are spectacular from inside the home as well as from the decks. A wood-burning stove makes cool evenings a treat. All modern conveniences included. Wifi throughout house.

                                                            A beautiful home that is so well decorated to be a home and not just a temporary lodging. Well equipped to sleep, cook, and serve the 10 people it indicates. Nancy and Carroll were accommodating to work with and supplied everything we needed to enjoy visiting with our friends. All were impressed with our choice and we will be recommending it to all.

                                                            Great rental with welcoming hosts.

                                                            Great property, and very accomidating for our large group...

                                                            Great family vacation home!

                                                            Sharon P.Great Falls, Montana

                                                            My husband and I took our family of four adults and four grandchildren under five with us for an "end of summer" celebration. Fortunately, we were able to rent this wonderful 'home away from home" for four days over the Labor Day weekend.

                                                            Amazingly, the house provided us with more than enough space to sleep soundly, feed all 10 of us three meals a day plus snacks, shower, and relax. The house was spotlessly clean and the yard well maintained.

                                                            The kitchen was well equipped with a gas range, quiet dish washer, large refrigerator, and plenty of cupboard space. There was plenty of cooking and eating equipment. We fed the kids first and then sat down to dinner around the lovely dining table.

                                                            The furniture was comfortable in all of the sitting rooms including the main floor living room, the downstairs den, and the screened-in downstairs patio. The deck was plenty large and furnished so that we could barbecue, lounge, and eat on it. Because it was closed off, the children could run around it while we watched from inside without worrying about their getting lost or hurt.

                                                            The upstairs and downstairs rooms - plus the loft bedroom - had beautiful, large windows which allowed us to view the beauty of Canyon Ferry Lake. The views were a real treat!

                                                            We thoroughly enjoyed the Canyon Ferry beach just a five minute walk away. We were able to bring our beach "stuff" in one car that we could park above the beach and then carry that stuff down to the sand. The lake was shallow enough to allow our 2, 3, 4, and 5 year olds to play to their hearts content as well as allowing us to pull our rented pontoon boat right up to shore to load and unload.

                                                            Nancy and Carroll, the owners, were right next door although they did not intrude in our family time in any way. They responded quickly by phone, text, and email to all our questions and requests for help.

                                                            We will definitely return to this special vacation place next year. Thanks to Nancy and Carroll for their warm hospitality!

                                                            5 stars!

                                                            This property will not disappoint! Comfortable, clean, homey and had everything it promised. View is beautiful from the deck!

                                                            It truly deserves the 5 star status.

                                                            It truly is a beautiful log home on Canyon Ferry Lake. It is everything and more than described in VRBO. We have stayed in a number of VRBO homes over the years, but this was by far the best one of all. From the first time we contacted the owners to the time we were guests in their home, we have never been treated better. A bonus is that they live next door and were always happy to help in any way.
