This lovely home is a beautiful, new Amish log cabin. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 3-stories, a roomy 2,800 square feet, plus extra sleeping areas. It is located by the Tobacco River next to the scenic Old Pidgeon Bridge. Situated off Highway 37, the cabin is approximately 4 miles west of Eureka, Montana. It is very close to The Wilderness Club, Montana’s #1 golf club as rated by Golfweek magazine. A Rails to Trails hiking and biking trail crosses the Pidgeon Bridge right in front of the lodge and continues on to the town of Rexford through the Kootenai National Forest. One may also fish or float the Tobacco River which runs beside the cabin. It is a very short drive to the beautiful Lake Koocanusa. The Rexford public boat ramp and public beach are 3.5 miles away, or visit Abayance Bay marina, restaurant, and bar which is only 4 miles away.
The kitchen boasts black granite and lovely custom-built knotty hickory cabinets and island. You’ll find all the amenities including refrigerator, range, microwave, dishwasher, and pantry. The kitchen flows into the dining room which holds a lovely custom-built dining table with four chairs.
The adjacent living room has a couch with two recliners, two swivel chairs, a wood-burning stove on a beautiful rock hearth, and large glass windows that overlook Kootenai Forest and the lovely river below. The view includes a large open space where you will often see deer feeding or even crossing the Pidgeon Bridge. French doors lead from the living room into a large screened porch. The porch includes a patio table with six comfortable chairs, a gas BBQ grill, and a twin bed – which will become your favorite spot in the house!
The second floor of the house is dedicated to the master suite. The master bedroom is furnished with Amish-built log furniture with rustic accents. It hosts a king-sized bed, shower, and a vintage claw-foot tub. This area includes a coffee and tea bar, just what you need for enjoying the small covered deck which extends off of the master suite. The deck is a perfect place to wake up to the sounds of the river below.
The second bedroom is on the main floor. It has a queen-sized, Amish-built log bed. This room includes a glass door that opens onto its own deck and garden area, complete with bird feeder. This bedroom is located next to the main floor restroom which contains a shower and stacked washer/dryer.
The lower level is a bright, open, daylight basement with a large rec room. This is also the location of the third bedroom, a private space with a California king bed. You will also find a tea room facing the large glass patio doors that open onto the deck which is just above the river.
About 25 feet from the main cabin there is a small one-room log cabin. This cabin contains a table and two chairs and a couch that converts into a bed. There is no bathroom in the small cabin but its proximity to the main house makes the restrooms there very accessible. This little cabin would be a great spot for young adults or a quiet retreat for those seeking solitude.
There are TVs without reception equipped with DVD players in the master and second bedroom, as well as the living room. You won’t want to use them though as every area of the house is permeated with the relaxing burble of the river flowing by. There are so many ways to play in the nearby area, and so many ways to relax at this home, you won’t want for anything else!
