Glacier Park offers all summer outdoor sports; nearby towns offer antique fairs, festivals, art shows,and horse shows. Fishing contests, parades, rafting and horseback riding is readily available .Mountain bike races. zip lining, bobsled rides on Big Mountain in Whitefish is always a must. Just down the street is a whiskey tasting venue. The Maze has basketball courts, water bumper boats and miniature golf. Hungry Horse Dam on the south fork of the Flathead river is know for its fishing, boating and Huckleberry harvest.
The small western town of Whitefish is bordered by the Whitefish Lake and the summer and winter resort of Big Mountain. In winter the ski runs are some of the best the West has to offer. In Summer the mountain is host to mountain bike races and hiking. A bobsled run and zip line are some of the other activities that attract visitors and locals alike.
Located on the Swan river, Bigfork is a major market for Montana art, featuring original works of art, jewelry and crafts. The clothes reflect the high quality and design that is unexpected in a small Western town. The Civic Theater,started many years ago with the authors reading and presenting there own works, has turned into one of the best small town Civic Theaters with sell out shows. To enjoy this part of Montana and experience the best that Glacier has to offer, six or seven days is best.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Being a native Montanan, I return every summer to the homestead my grandparents built in the early 1900's. I spent my early summer years learning the ways not only of the west but also of their European roots. I built the cabin 4 years ago because I wanted to be closer to the river. The original log cabin of my grandparents is where I spent the last 15 summers until I could build my own with all of todays conveniences. I can't think of any place I would rather be during the summer than in this cabin, including the Central Coast of California where I live the rest of the year.
Why the Owner Chose Columbia Falls, MT, USA:
The cabin is on the same property as the original log cabin that my mom and her 6 siblings grew up in. It's just a short walk from one to the other but they still remain a world apart.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This cabin is a long way from my permanent home, taking 3 days of driving time. There just isn't any place like Montana or the strong spirit of the offspring of the settlers that came before them. There isn't much bravado shown or horn blowing when it comes to the pride the people show in where they live. It shows in the way they treat the land, their families and visitors. You're never a stranger when you visit Montana. They are very proud of where they live, proud of how they live and are eager for visitors to feel the same way when they leave. The weather is ever changing in the spring, summer and fall. We have glorious thunderstorms that shake the ground, hot dry days made for hiking, cool nights when the mountain inhabitants become silent, waiting for yet another great day in Montana.
