GENERAL DESCRIPTION - (Children must be a minimum of 8 years old due to the cantilevered deck and steep drop to the creek below)
This recently completed (summer 2016) cabin sits nestled into a hillside among cedar, birch, and larch tree tops - perched above a cascading creek. Lake-Creek Cabin offers a feeling of being away from it all with its private setting (in a rural neighborhood) and yet is convenient to Glacier National Park (West Glacier & North Fork), the airport, restaurants and groceries in Columbia Falls; and to Whitefish, known for its recreational activities, shopping, dining, and nightlife.
The cabin features a single-level, light and airy 1200 sq. ft. open floor plan and sleeps up to four adults or children (age 8 or older – see age restriction below). A large deck with gas grill, dining and sitting areas, cantilevers out to capture views of the forest and creek below – a peaceful setting and the perfect place to enjoy time together and deeply relax. Not the perfect weather to be outside? Enjoy outdoor living nonetheless in the cozy screened porch.
Lake-Creek Cabin is thoughtfully and generously provisioned, including a complete kitchen with new fully-featured appliances, cookware, utensils, and place settings. A pantry of herbs, spices, condiments and food storage supplies are provided for our guests’ convenience.
A high ceiling and windowed wall in the great room bring the outdoors in as a backdrop for enjoying time indoors with comfortable living and dining seating for all. Additional features include a cozy gas fireplace, 48” smart TV with satellite, DVD player, stereo/CD player with Bluetooth connectivity, Wi-Fi, cell signal enhancer, and board games.
Getting a good night’s sleep is a key ingredient for the best vacation days, so we have endeavored to create a most comfortable sleep experience for our guests. With comfortable mattresses, quality sheets, down and synthetic pillows and layered bedding you can get it just right. Open the windows for tranquil sounds of the creek below and cool mountain night air and you have the recipe for a perfect night’s sleep.
The master bedroom suite features a king bed with creek and tree top views and a private full bath (tub/shower). The second bedroom features two twin beds and private wooded views and adjacent bath with roomy shower. Ceiling fans are located in both bedrooms and in the great room for our guests comfort.
For the perfect start to the day, pour a cup of coffee, snuggle in on the screened porch and enjoy a chorus of birdsong. Browse through the resource file to check out the information on Glacier Park, area services, and attractions. Consult the trail guide, other guide books and maps to plan the day’s outing. Packing a picnic lunch is a cinch with a cooler, reusable ice blocks, and picnic dishes available. We provide 3 canisters of bear spray for guest use.
Take care of laundry in the full size washer and dryer with laundry supplies provided. Our guests at Glacier Ridge Cabin (VRBO/HomeAway #594060) tell us how much they appreciate finding everything they need. We have done our best to recreate that experience for our Lake-Creek Cabin guests.
Summer days are long in Montana and offer the opportunity to enjoy evenings outdoors. Walk or drive less than a half mile to the local lake access for a canoe paddle on quiet Spoon Lake. Listen for the loons! Canoe, paddles and life jackets provided for guest use. Or grab the beach towels and hike the forest trail to the secluded swimming beach for a cool dip.
Opportunities for summer recreation out the cabin door include canoeing or swimming at the lake, mountain biking in the back country, biking on the North Fork Road, fishing and rafting on the Flathead River (access only 3.5 miles away). There is so much to enjoy near the cabin that you don’t need to leave, but opportunities abound in the area. A 15 minute scenic shortcut brings you to the West Glacier entrance of Glacier National Park. Or head north and follow the North Fork of the Flathead River to Polebridge (an off-the-grid community) and the quiet northwest access to Glacier National Park.
Easy to find and with year round access, this is a great home base for hiking, biking, rafting, fishing, paddling, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, and downhill skiing, just for starters. The Flathead Valley offers a wealth of theater, music and special community events all year long.
Make coming home something to look forward to after an incredible day of exploring and recreating in Glacier National Park and the Flathead Valley. We have designed and built this secluded feeling, yet convenient hideaway for our guests to relax and enjoy their time together amidst the beauty of nature.
Open year round, we welcome you to Lake-Creek Cabin.
