About the property

Family Owned for 100 Years Private dock and Beachfront

Located on the east shore of Flathead Lake, The Marsh Family Cabins offers postcard views, spectacular sunsets and great swimming. The Property has been family owned for 100 years since 1917. Nestled in the trees at the end of a private lane, and just eight miles north of Polson, off Highway 35, the three cabins rent as one unit making it ideal for several families to share. Available only a weekly basis, there are two full kitchens, two baths, and enough beds to accommodate up to 11 people.

The original log cabin built by our grandfather in the 1920s has been tastefully updated yet still retains its original charm complete with a large stone fireplace and screened in porch.

A new deck extends from this cabin, almost over the water, and is a favorite for watching sunsets and lake activity.

There are three double beds and one single bed in this cabin as well as a fully stocked kitchen and bathroom with shower.

The 'little cabin', built in 1942, has also been updated and now adjoins the 'new addition' which was built in 2000. The addition provides a second bathroom, kitchen and laundry room as well as a Victorian clawfoot bathtub. The addition has one King bed, and the adjoining cabin has two double size bunk beds in one room, a single in another room and a single bed with a trundle bed pullout in the living room area.

This cabin has a gas fireplace for the occasional cool day.

You will have full lake access for swimming, boating, fishing and sunbathing from our private dock and beach.

The Marsh Family Cabins is close to Big Fork, Glacier National Park, and the Bison Range. Missoula, Kalispell, Whitefish, and other recreational destinations are within two hours.

Ideal place for friends or family with lots of beds. The 3 rustic cabins make it perfect to habe some personal space yet hold a large group when needed. Extremely friendly neighbour's on the left (south side). Absolutely beautiful sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

We visted the Marsh family cabins in August of 2005. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable week. Swimming, Hiking, Playing Croquet and enjoying good friends. It was quite the place. We chose to sleep on the sleeping porch and it was wonderful. Waking up to a fresh morning is a perfect way to start the day. The cabin offers a rustic cabin feel and is nicely updated also. It is a perfect retreat for family and friends.
