Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are Ed & Jo Beveridge, the proud owners of the Spoon Lake Lodge since the middle of summer 2013. We fell in love with the serenity & beauty of Spoon Lake & the custom log-accented home built by the former owners/custom home builder the minute we saw it. It's our little slice of heaven in the Flathead forest just outside Glacier National Park and we would like you to enjoy it too. So many of the summer guests that were already booked when we bought the lodge expressed a desire to return and this convinced us that we could share our lovely spot on Spoon Lake for years to come. I'm Ed & I was born in Montana. I have spent most of my life living in or visiting Montana from wherever life has taken me. You never can get Montana out of your blood. I have been enjoying Glacier National Park like my parents most of my life & lived for many years on Flathead Lake. We also enjoyed Whitefish Lake for over 10 years when our kids were younger. My wife, Jo, is a converted Minnesota girl who loves her loons & the mountain lakes in Montana. We have been bringing our three sons here since they were little. They are all in college now, The oldest two are married and we have 1 granddaughter and 1 grandson. The third is getting married in June 2017. We're still converting South Dakota, Arizona and now Washington women to the Montana dream.......so far they are sold!

Why the Owner Chose Columbia Falls, MT, USA:
This property is 8 miles north of Columbia Falls, a little town between Whitefish & West Glacier. Historic & remote Polebridge is 27 miles further up the road with remote access to glacial lakes along the western slopes of GNP. The pavement ends about 3 miles past Spoon Lake after the back road short cut, Blankenship Road turn off to West Glacier. Everyone who has stayed at the Spoon Lake lodge seems to spend most of their time hiking, fishing, exploring Glacier Park & all the wonderful surrounding communities & lakes. We offer you a very comfortable place with a spectacular serene view with all the comforts of home at the end of your day. Or just relax & take a spin in the rowboat or kayaks right outside your door.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The lower apartment is fully contained & locked off from the owner's space on the top two floors. It has a covered patio w/ a bbq and outdoor table & chairs. Walk right out to the grassy lakefront & the outdoor fire ring w/ plenty of chopped wood available for your use. You will have a full kitchen, inside full-sized laundry room, & spacious full bath with steam shower only. The living room has a large picture window & rock fireplace with gas logs. The bedroom also enjoys a large picture window view to the lake. It has both a queen bed & twin sofa bed. The living room has a new queen sofa bed and two wicker chairs with a cozy gas rock fireplace . All the towels & linens are provided for your arrival. You have the use of the row boat & 2 kayaks. It is a mostly non-motorized 60 acre lake so it's very quiet. If you are visiting while my wife Jo, or one of my daughter-n-laws are upstairs you will no doubt be treated to any number of their fabulous edible creations.............if you're lucky it will be with huckleberries. Feel free to forage for huckleberries. Pray for Huckleberries in abundance.
