About the Property
'Wilderness' Feel' describes this 3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath
The Cabin: The views from the cabin are simply stunning; guests love the sight of serene Flathead River, the majestic Columbia Mountain Range, and the ever present wildlife. You are guaranteed to see deer, eagles, turkeys, and the occasional bear. The entire east side of the cabin is windows - a sliding glass door leads to a beautiful deck for hosting outdoor dinners in the summer and year-round stargazing . An open kitchen, dining and living area is perfect for entertaining and gatherings with loved ones. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need to craft the perfect meal – cookware, small appliances, plating for 8, and much more. The comfortable living area is the ideal for getting cozy with a book, playing board games, or merely soaking in the view. A large master bedroom encompasses the loft with a king bed, a sitting area nook, and water closet. Two cozy bedrooms located on the main floor include queen beds. The main bathroom contains a corner shower and is stocked with plush towels and a hair dryer. A utility room, also on the main floor, contains a washer, dryer, ironing board, and iron. This lovely cabin was constructed in early 2014 therefore the amenities are fresh, new, and ready for you to use.
The Property: A one mile drive on a gravel road through the country will lead you to the cabin. The river boarders the east of the property, and we’ve kept the river side of our property open with a few tall trees for shade. Our property is kept natural and is not overly manicured – we love our connection with nature! The remainder of the property has a couple outbuildings for storage, and is covered with tall spruce and cottonwood trees. Guests are welcome to fish along certain sections of the riverbank or use property as a put in or take out location for river float and fishing trips. Our location is an unspoiled place to retreat and relax to after a fun day of exploring all the region has to offer.
Recreation: Nearby recreational opportunities are endless! Guests have close and easy access to hiking, skiing (all forms), fly fishing, sport fishing, mountain biking, cycling, rock climbing, sight-seeing, bird watching, boating, whitewater rafting, and the list goes on and on. The cabin is fully stocked with games, movies, and books. A fire pit for story-telling, marshmallow roasting and stargazing is available nearly year round. The river is wild, cold, and unpredictable therefore swimming is never encouraged or recommended.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

To find our property, if you have GPS, put in either Kalispell or Columbia Falls, MT - (you might want to get groceries at the Super One on Hwy 2).
About 6 miles, you'll come to Glacier Park International Airport, cont. south through the stop light to the next stop light on Birch Grove by Jagzs Restaurant and Cowgirl Coffee. Turn EAST go to 1/2 mile to the next road to the SOUTH (not marked, but it is Helena Flats). Go 1.5 miles to intersection and turn EAST onto Eid Ln. Go 1/4 mile to end of pavement, turn SOUTH onto Goodrich Rd. (gravel). The sign is faded, but it is there on the corner by 9-10 mail boxes. You'll go 1/4 mile then the road turns to the left for another 1/2 mile to a blind corner. There is a mirror by the birch tree, with red ribbons and gold bells hanging by it - check the mirror then proceed around the corner slowly - it may be icy. Cross the bridge and go 1/4 mile to another 't' with brick and iron fence, with wreaths hung on it - turn LEFT and pass one house on the right. Take the NEXT driveway to the RIGHT - there is an arrow on a fish on the tree pointing to the Rainbow's End!
So many choices! Because our cabin is centrally located, I took the liberty of expanding the '15 minutes from....' to 'within 30 minutes of....' in all directions! Experience memorable white water rafting on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River with a gourmet dinner served on a gravel bar. Try your hand at horseback riding along mountain trails, or on a chuck wagon with dinner served. Plan to be here in August for the County Fair, with livestock, home grown and canned goodies, and rodeo every evening. See who can ride the bulls the full 8 seconds!
If water sports are your joy, try the water bumper cars in Coram, or the water slides in Columbia Falls. Mountain bike riding on Whitefish Mountain is a challenge, with many more miles of trails scattered throughout the Valley. Whitefish Mountain also has thrilling zip lines to enjoy. Challenge yourself to ride with the front pack of bikers to finish the 100 mile Huckleberry 100 and finish in roughly 5 hours!
For something unexpected so far north, tour the micro-breweries, find the whiskey and vodka distilleries, and sip wine at a winery south of Lakeside along Flathead Lake.
Matchless majestic scenery is available to those who choose to hike Glacier Park trails, or hire horses to ride into the wilderness areas nearby. There is no end to the outdoor activities available to the adventurous.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Robert and I have lived here on the Flathead River for 24 years in the A-frame built in the '70's. I grew up in the Valley, attending Evergreen Elementary till 8th grade, and Robert is a transplant from southern Idaho. We both attended FVCC, and he graduated valedictorian in the first class of land surveyors, and is still surveying here in the Valley after a 12 year hiatus in Alaska. My family has been here in the Valley since the 1920's, with each generation moving away (or being moved away!) and coming back, irresistibly drawn by the unforgettable loveliness of this Valley. I am excited to meet the people who want to experience our Valley and enjoy it's riches! You are welcome here.
Why the Owner Chose Kalispell, MT, USA:
We just finished building this Amish cabin 200 feet from our 'A Frame' home, to share the lovely serenity of this place with travelers. When we bought this property, the realtor kept saying, 'They don't make places like this any more...!' and he was right. This is a unique property for your complete rest and relaxation, combined with as much adventure as you want to pack into your time here! The owners nearby give you the opportunity for fast answers to questions about things to do, places to go, ... or complete privacy, as you choose!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
'Wilderness' eight miles from two city centers is a huge benefit I enjoy about this property. I used to drive 45 miles into the 'Swan' to visit friends, and I have the same feel here, so close to town. Though one neighbor is in sight of this cabin, the Louisiana owners are seldom there, so, privacy combined with close proximity to all the attractions make this a special place. (Owner's property is 200 ft. away, screened by trees.)
