The nearby Kootenai River is a world-class fishery and holds trophy rainbow trout. Guided trips are available on a daily basis. Roasting marshmallows in the evening at the fire pit by the shoreline caps off a fun-filled day.

About Stacy Dolan

Doug and I are both in the health care fields. Doug is an optometrist and I am a physical therapist. We both love to fly fish. We were born and raised in Montana and we love the outdoors. Katy is a great swimmer and like me, she enjoys downhill skiing. I especially like to travel and we try to take a trip somewhere every year. Doug enjoys exploring the mountains around the cabin on the 4 wheeler.

Stacy Dolan purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Stacy Dolan chose Libby

Back in 2003 we found this cabin and we both liked it right away. I spent many weekends at an A-frame cabin on a ski hill owned by friends of my family while growing up and so this cabin feels very comfortable and like 'home'. We especially liked the gently sloping entrance into the water as Katy was very young when we bought the cabin. We both felt it was easy to get to, not far from our home, and obviously had many recreational opportunities in every direction.

What makes this cabin unique

Our family appreciates the quiet at the cabin, and time to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The lake is spring fed and is especially good for swimming because of the warmer temperatures and we all love to swim. Spending time here 'recharges our batteries' and lets us reconnect with each other.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The lake is so stunningly beautiful we spent most of our time on it, in it or gazing at it! We loved our time swimming, turtling, fishing and boating. A lovely cottage on a lovely lake! We had a wonderfull time! Thank you!

Great mountain getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful balance of accessibility and privacy. Great location, spacious and comfortable property close to endless lakes, streams and trails. The private lake (clear, deep and cold) plus the available row/paddle boats was a bonus for a great family getaway. Our only concern was that the beds were very soft, a bit uncomfortable for someone with old back injuries. We would gladly return without question!!

The Dolan House on Lake Levon

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at the Dolan house on the Lake, and like before it was a great place to vacation. Cabin is very supplied with all the necessities needed. Stacey is such a great person to deal with, and we even gave her some Pennsylvania Deer bologna to try, which she really enjoyed. Cabin is clean, and both Crystal and Levon Lake are great to kayak in. I'm sure we will be back again.

Perfect Lake Front Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in your lake front cabin. One of the cleanest, if not the cleanest home I have ever stayed in. Plus very well equipped with supplies and cooking utensils. Enjoyed fishing on the lake and nearby creeks. Libby is only a 20 minute drive and has cute shops plus a great sports store we enjoyed. Would highly recommend this cabin for anyone coming to Montana to hike, fish or just relax. You will not go wrong by booking this one! Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Lots of stuff to do not only at the cabin but around the cabin as well. There are lots of trails not only for hiking but riding ATVs as well. Lots of lakes around this property to explore and swim in. Beautiful cabin that easily held 8 of us and was well stocked. Will be going back!!

Our 10 year-old is already talking about next summer!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place. We stayed here for a week in August, 2016 and could not have been happier with the cabin. Perfect quiet remote location. It had everything we needed and plenty of space for our "gear." It could have accommodated a couple more people easily. The lake was lovely and quiet, and the swimming was spectacular. We went to Libby a couple of times as well as sight-seeing at the Ross Cedars and the Kootenai River Falls. I'll be voting for coming back soon too.
