Jaybird's 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath with Forest and Mountain Views
About Doyle Foley
Abbott Valley was gifted to us by our parents about 25 years ago. We grew up here riding horses, fishing and swimming, hiking in the mountains, building forts, and riding tractors and haying and raising cattle. We went away to school, had careers, came back and now our third generation of family is enjoying 'the ranch'. The Foley Family
Doyle Foley purchased this House in 1946
Why Doyle Foley chose Martin City
Abbott Valley is a 270 acre homestead minutes from the West Entrance to Glacier National Park. Nestled near Desert Mountain, and surrounded by Flathead National Forest, this is one of the larger tracts of land, still intact, which was originally homesteaded in 1910 shortly before the establishment of Glacier National Park (1911) and the founding of the National Park Service (1916). Abbott Valley is comprised of meadows, forests, beaver ponds and criss-crossed by two creeks, North and South Abbott. Two of our rentals - Mickey's and Baptiste - are the original homestead cabins dating back 100 years and though they have been remodeled they retain their original authentic log structures. They are a delight to stay in and it is fun to marvel that right here the Indians pitched tee-pees on the property and traded with the early settlers. Abbott Valley is family owned and operated. We live here and are available to answer questions to help make your vacation a memorable experience. We have been welcoming guests for 25 years. Many return year after year, having 'chosen' one cabin or another as theirs, putting their roots down, if only for a week or two, so they can enjoy time with each other in a beautiful, serene setting.
What makes this House unique
Our location is an ideal base for exploring Glacier National Park, the Hungry Horse Reservoir, Whitefish, Kalispell, Bigfork and all that the Flathead has to offer.

Family stay at Jaybirds
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jaybirds! The property and home exceeded our expectations. The home was very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed a fire in the fire pit, and the kids loved the rope swings. Thank you for sharing your property with us!
Our stay was very short but this property was in a great location for West Glacier, very clean, and comfortable. We would stay here again. Thanks for letting us stay!
Little gem in the woods!
Great property in a very calm and peaceful setting. Other than A small hiccup with arrival info our stay was exceptional. Highly recommend!
Piece of paradise outside Glacier
This property is stocked to the hilt w anything you may need. We felt at home w the amenities. A huge plus to do a load of Laundry after days in the backwoods. BBQ pit was perfect addition and the grounds were kept clean and cut and well managed. Doyle is the man, he came through with all our requests ahead of time.
We can’t wait to come back and will stay again for sure along with more people next time!
Thanks to the Foley family for providing an amazing place to relax and feeling of being rustic as well. Stay at this place and you can’t go wrong.
Thank you so much for a lovely review! Please come back and see us again.

Our stay at Doyle’s cabin
Very clean and comfortable. Wonderful location on a wooded homestead. Quick access to Glacier. We will try to book there again when we visit Glacier National Park.
This is a wonderful property, It is very convenient to Glacier National Park. The property itself is beautiful and relaxing. The manager is on site and very easy to contact. We enjoyed the flowers, nearby creek, and hummingbird feeders which were kept full. Highly recommend.
Thank you, Elizabeth,for your lovely review and for choosing Jaybirds on the Abbott Valley Homestead! It was delightful to host you and your family. Please come back and see us again soon.
