Overview

About the property

The perfect cabin for a quiet getaway! Gaze at the stars under a clear Big Sky night! Enjoy wildlife right outside your front door and wake up in the morning to a peaceful mountain view. This cabin is located on our 32 acre property. It backs to logging land with a path that leads to it just off the cabin. You have access to miles of trails for moutain biking, hiking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

While the cabin is located on our property, rest assured that you will have complete privacy to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. There is a queen size bed on the main floor, a queen bed in the loft which is accessed by a ladder and a full size futon on the main floor.

We are located within 40 minutes of Glacier National Park, 45 min from Whitefish, Big Mountain, Bigfork, the Jewel Basin or Flathead Lake and we have countless trails within walking distance or a short drive. The options are endless for what you can do from this location. This is also a perfect base for hunting big game in Montana ( you must obtain your own license). There is fishing in Smith Lake which is 10 min away, or you can drive to Flathead Lake and take a day trip out on one of the many charter boats. White water rafting is another activity that is fantastic on the Flathead River!

We can help you plan any of the activities that you would like to enjoy. Please let us know what you're looking for and we're happy to help make your stay more enjoyable.

HORSE BOARDING is available through our neighbor less than 1 mile away

About Doug or Mimi O'Neill

We are Mimi and Doug O'Neill recent residents to Montana from Maine. Mimi is originally from Charleston, SC and Doug is from Evanston, Illinois. We met in Charleston 19 years ago and have been married for 9 years and both have children from previous marriages. Our immediate family consists of 3 Golden Retrievers and one Ragamuffin cat. Our 2 oldest Goldens Elle and Bean are brother and sister and they are 9 1/2 years old along with our newest addition Bella who is 26 months old. Our kitty is 7 years old named Heidi. Prior to moving here we visited Montana many times and chose the Flathead Valley as our home. We welcome you to visit our home and stay in our cabin and enjoy the serenity and beauty of Montana. Feel free to hike and enjoy our 32 acres and the surrounding forest that encompases our property.

Doug or Mimi O'Neill purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Doug or Mimi O'Neill chose Glacier Country

As you enjoy your morning coffee on the cabin deck or a cold beverage at night rest assured the deer will be abundant along with the solitude that we have to offer. There will be no highway noise and no lights to hinder your view of the sky at night (Big Sky Montana) just the sounds of wildlife near you.

What makes this cabin unique

We are 15 to 20 minutes to Kalispell and 40 minutes to Glacier National Park. Flathead Lake and Big Fork are about 25 minutes away with other lakes nearby to enjoy-either fishing, boating or swimming.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Mimi and Doug were very helpful with tourist information, activities and ideas. The cabin is cute as can be and definitely cozy. The weather was in the 90's while we were there but the fans cooled the cabin right down with the low nighttime temperatures so was very comfortable. We were able to see dozens of deer traveling from the main road into the cabin in the evenings, counting over 50 on our last night there as well as several resident deer and fawn roaming around the cabin each morning and evening.

Mimi's cooking is amazing! You definitely need to order breakfast, delivered hot and fresh right to your front door. Homemade biscuits, butter, jam and a hot, tasty breakfast to start your day.

We had a wonderful stay. Thanks so much.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this cabin and how much we enjoyed our stay there! It was exactly what we were looking for: privacy, wildlife, clean, and convenient to many areas. Mimi's cooking was a wonderful treat and she and Doug were perfect hosts. We felt completely at home and we absolutely loved the scenery. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer! It is everything you hope a place will turn out to be. We will definitely book this cabin again!
