About the property

Beautiful, private, secluded alpine lake front cabin

This property is a lovely 4 bedroom cabin on Lake Mary Ronan. The main part of the cabin was built in the 1940s with a large two story addition in the 70s. This is an ideal location to enjoy the beauty of Western Montana, including Flathead Lake, Glacier Park, the Flathead Valley and surrounding area. The cabin is located less than 20' from the water's edge of Lake Mary Ronan. It is near Blacktail ski area and is a great vacation location for fishing, boating, ice fishing, snow skiing, hiking in Glacier and more. There is a primitive (rough gravel) boat ramp. The location is very private and secluded yet only 25 minutes from Polson and 40 minutes from Kalispell. The cabin comes fully furnished. There is a restaurant about 1/4 mile away at the Lake Mary Ronan Lodge. The only downside is that there is only one bathroom. It sleeps up to 9 people

The cabin is fully furnished with all cooking and eating utensils, basic spices, clean linens on beds. We typically do not provide maid servce.

About Suzanne

My wife and I have lived in western montana for the past 26 years. I grew up in a small community in the cascade mountains of Washington and my wife grew up in southeastern Idaho. We both have wonderful memories of going to a cabin with our grandparents, boating, hiking, and riding motorcycles in beautiful Idaho and Wyoming. We wanted the same for our four boys and purchased this property in 2002. It was perfect for us. We have watched our four boys grow up, swimming and boating in the summer, fishing, hiking , catching crawdads, boating and having a great time together as a family.

Suzanne purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Suzanne chose Lake Mary Ronan

Lake Mary Ronan is a relatively small lake (about 5 square miles in size). It is off the beaten track, but close to great world class vacation locations like Glacier Park, Flathead Lake, Big Mountain ski area. It has the feeling of the 50's and we love coming to the lake as it is like stepping back in time to an era of slower more relaxed activities.

While we are likely biased, in our opinion this is the best location on the lake. The front window is literally 20 feet from the lake. There is plenty of room for all the requisite toys that one wishes to bring. It is the second to last house on the northwest corner of the lake and is on a secluded bay.

What makes this cabin unique

We love sitting on the covered porch watching the water on the lake, seeing the resident eagle roosting in the tree across the bay and watching the Osprey raise their chicks in the nest 100 yards down the shore. Our boys love catching perch, trout and kokanee off the dock (the record is 55 perch in 60 minutes). We can easily access Glacier park for the day or take the boat to Flathead lake to visit wildhorse island.

Wonderful getaway location

  • 5 of 5

This lakefront house was ideally situated and the location is very peaceful. We enjoyed being able to use the owner's kayaks for paddling around the lake and found the house to be very comfortable; just right for a few days getaway. Great bird-watching and beautiful views. We loved sitting on the back porch and relaxing!

Beautiful house on a peaceful lake

  • 5 of 5

The lake on this property was a great place to swim and fish. The house has everything you need to relax and get away from the large town hustle and bustle. Will have to stay longer next time.

The house was great for our family with lots of room to spread out and fun stuff to do. The kids loved the tepee, kayaks, fishing and the video games. We had a great time, thank you.
