About Rochelle Danker
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.
Rochelle Danker purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Rochelle Danker chose Coram
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.
What makes this Cabin unique
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.

Beautiful, comfortable and convenient home
My wife and I plus 5 adult children enjoyed a great vacation at Rochelle's home. The home was comfortable, clean and close to the West Glacier entrance. We enjoyed our week of hiking, horseback riding, white water rafting and boating. Glacier National Park is a sight to behold and we had a enjoyable home to rest after a full day of adventures!
Cozy and convenient
The motif is very western and fitting for a log home.
The location is perfect because it is close to GNP and the Flathead National Forest.
Fabulous log cabin home
We loved staying at Rochelle 's cabin! It is absolutely beautiful. You'll have all the cookware and dishware you could ever need. The beds are comfy with lots of extra blankets and pillows available. And the home is very well maintained and very tidy. There fans in all the bedrooms should you need them. We stayed in July with 80-90 degree days and 50-60 nights. Be sure to take the advice of prior comments and close up the house during the day to keep the temp nice and take advantage of the cool weather each night and morning by opening the windows.
You'll love this home! We Did! Thanks Rochelle!
Perfect for Glacier National Park!
The cabin was wonderful but the location was the best part. Access to GNP was easy, supermarkets were close, and the river was in view.
This is a beautiful cabin in a convenient location.
We vacationed at this cabin with two other couples and spent our day’s hiking and exploring Glacier NP. The photos don’t do justice to the beautiful and comfortable feel of the cabin. We enjoyed seeing new / subtle decorative touches around the cabin throughout our stay. Everything we needed was provided.
The location is very convenient to the park and numerous trails. My wife and I took the Empire Builder train across the mid-west to West Glacier, which added to our vacation experience. We’d like to come back with our family.
It's a great feeling when you can add to the positive experience of our guests. I hope that they will remember their Montana vacation for many years and come back soon. There comfort in the cabin and the nice comments regarding the overall experience is truly gratifying. Just what you want to convey to each guest that comes to visit. This summer we were fortunate to have guests who came to regard the cabin as their second home.
Comfortable and spacious. Very well kept.
We loved the log home! Very comfortable and clean with all the amenities of home in a beautiful setting. Glacier National Park is only a 10 minute drive away and is one of the most spectacular sights we've ever seen. The cabin's proximity to the railroad tracks really isn't much of a problem, as trains are a integral part of the surrounding area's sights and sounds. The view of the river from the deck is another plus. Cook in or eat out, great eating is available within a short radius. Kalispell and the airport are approximately a 30 minute drive away. Overall, a great trip to a beautiful part of the world!
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.
