About Mattie

We are a young family, who are adventure seekers. We moved to Bigfork (from Missoula), to be closer to the things we love to do as a family. Whether it's hiking, skiing, fishing, floating, climbing, cycling, or camping, we love to be out there doing it and showing our kids how great the outdoors can be. We want other people and families to be able to create their own adventures while visiting.

Mattie purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Mattie chose Flathead Lake

We immediately fell in love with this area when we visited this property. The openness we have to let our littles explore, but mainly the ACCESS we have to all the things we love to do.

What makes this cabin unique

ACCESS to all the great adventures right in our neighborhood. We ourselves are explorers, we want everyone to have their own unique experience and love to share some of our favorite spots with guests. There is something for everyone.

An amazing, tucked-away gem with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a comfortable place that wasn't in the middle of the holiday madness around Glacier National Park, and this was the perfect choice. Mattie ensures everything is fully stocked, and you can even rent bear spray to take on your hikes. She was super responsive to all our questions and made sure we were settled in well. We'd definitely come back next time we hike in the area!

Cozy little cabin in the woods we enjoyed.

Mattie keeps a clean and tidy cabin and her husband Nate was very accommodating. We will be looking forward to visiting again.

What a magical Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I could not give more praise for Mattie and the wonderful cabin I stayed in for 8 days. It was the most cozy and Mattie was an incredible host. The place is about 50 minutes from the west side entrance to glacier, and a great base from which to explore the park. It's also right next to swan river and Flathead lake, which are GORGEOUS and I highly recommend taking a couple days to explore those areas as well. Could not praise this place more. Worth every penny

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable with all necessary accommodations for cooking our own meals, even used the charcoal grill one night. Enjoyed the large deck which had plenty of room for lounging as well as enjoying our meals in the morning and evening with our dog. Very close to Flathead lake and the Swan River as well as other small lakes. The cabin is not secluded, however, so don't expect absolute peace and quiet as there will be occasional noise of children from other homes nearby.

Pleasant and private but not fancy. We would like to stay there again.

Cute, comfortable cabin in a quiet setting with friendly hosts and a good location, just a few miles from Flathead Lake, Bigfork and Woods Bay. We saw elk in the meadow one night.

Adorable cozy cabin, friendly hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here on our way across the country from Maine. We decided we wanted to check out Glacier NP on our trip out West and came across this cabin. The cabin is situated on a larger property, tucked away and surrounded by trees. The cabin itself is really cute and comfy; just big enough for two people. It's close to restaurants and attractions in Bigfork, so even though you feel like you're off the beaten path, you're not far from things to do.

The hosts were great. Really nice people, and we enjoyed with chatting with them. They were also welcoming of our kitty.

The only downside is that it was a bit of trek to the East side of Glacier, which is where we ended up spending most of our time. It was our fault that we didn't do better research, but nonetheless, we managed to make the most out of our time and really enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you Raynee! So glad you enjoyed your time here, we know how hard it already is to travel with furry famiy. So we like to try and accommodate! East Glacier is definitely a trek from our place, we ourselves don't get to make it that way very often for that very reason. I am going to make sure our listing says 45 minutes from the West Entrance of Glacier. We really appreciate your feedback. I hope the rest of your trip went smoothly!
