Property description

Beautiful 17 inch lodgepole pine cabin on the Flathead River with 8 acres and private island complete with swimming hole.. Lots of wildlife and stunning sunsets! Located just minutes from Glacier International Airport (FCA) Scenic points to enjoy within 30-60 minutes are Glacier National Park where you can see wildlife such as elk, deer, bear, eagles and the famous mountain goats, Whitefish Mountain Resort for winter skiing and summer hiking, the artisan village of Bigfork and of course pristine Flathead Lake. Flathead Lake is the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi and gives Tahoe a run for the money! Private 8 acre parcel is nestled among working wheat, potato, canola fields as near Firefly, a therapeutic equine therapy program.

This home is great for family or group vacations as the upstairs has the master suite, kitchen, and gas fireplace along with hardwood floors and colorful handmade wool rugs. The entire cabin just underwent renovation and is elegant yet cozy too.The downstairs has a wood burning fireplace, large living room and two bedrooms with full bathroom. There is also a king leather couch which serves as another bed if needed. For the adventurous, there is a loft for kids to sleep in over the garage complete w a wood burning cast iron stove for those chilly nights! There is a boathouse complete w wind chimes, hammock and chairs. The back has a large covered deck, patio furniture, picnic table , fire bowl and grill located near the new firepit. The front porch faces the Swan mountains which light up at sunset. Comes complete with lawn chairs and fireplace warmers and a beaver lodge on the island banks. This place is decked out and ready for that perfect vacation! When my children were young and we traveled they loved nests, closets, special rooms etc. so our log cabin has this cozy safe nest downstairs right under the staircase... Check it out! It's fun with quilts and blankets and a lantern! It is worth noting that we have 5 recent guests who have booked returning vacations and one has referred a friend who loved the place.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: This log cabin is my dream home and I negotiated on it over the course of a year. I relocated to the area from Tampa, FL and moved in December 2014. As an artist, I had a blast renovating and updating with, granite, faux painting, tile and landscaping. I also recently purchased a large Rainier cherry orchard on the east shore of Flathead Lake and where not only do we grow cherries, but also have Sunny Slopes Organic Farm there where we grow wheatgrass, sprouts and microgreens. We will be so happy to share wild flowers for you on your stay, our crop samples and order forms for our well known rainier and lambert cherries! We will ship from mid July to late August depending on weather. The 2015 crop is very promising. Great gift idea too.?wWe wish for you the peace, serenity and joy that this place has given us! Carpe Diem!

Why the Owner Chose Columbia Falls, MT, USA:
Location...location... Just outside West Glacier, minutes from the airport and Kalispell and a short drive south to beautiful, historic downtown Bigfork which sits on the Swan River attaching to Flathead Lake! Great restaurants, live theatre, galleries etc. Think pristine, safe and fresh air. Or you can drive NW to Whitefish which is like a mini-Tahoe. We are pleased to announce that as of 11/11/15 This home is one of very few rentals in Flathead County....officially licensed by the State of Montana as a tourist home! April 2016, New state of the art stone firepit complete with adirondak chairs facing the river.....

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Immaculate log Cabin with vaulted yet cozy living room, home has both gas and log fireplaces, nestled on 8 acres with river and mountain views, private island, hiking trails and swimming hole. Great birding! Claw foot tub in master bathroom is great after a long hike in the park. For the adventurous or teens, loft in garage w queen mattress for glamping! There is even an old fashioned wood burning fireplace in there! Just make sure to latch the door!
