About Butch Short

We have owned and operated an outdoor store "Far-North Outfitters" in Bonners Ferry for 24 years, through out those years we have had many inquiries, as to if there was a log cabin on the river for rent, since we knew of no actual log cabins, right on the river, we set out to find the perfect spot ( took 5 years ), and build one ( 2 more years )..... And now, is completed and ready to be relaxed in....

Butch Short purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Butch Short chose Bonners Ferry

I chose this spot specifically because it's right in the middle of all the things we did with our 4 daughters growing up in the 80's.., floating the Moyie River, Hiking to Copper Creek Falls, swimming in the pools, picking huckleberries up Deer Ridge, fishing at Robinson and Sinclair Lakes, having dinners at Fiest Creek Resort, feeding the huge trout in the pond etc... Because of the beauty and uniqueness of Far-North Idaho , I wanted to share this with others as well as always having a place, no matter what crazy place they end up, that they can come back to , to reground , and to share with their children.

A cabin in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Set in a serene area of northern Idaho, this cabin and surrounding property offer an enjoyable respite for families and even their furry babies. In my travels over the past 50 years this has to rate either number 1 or 2. All you need and a cabin that is probably more well appointed than your home. We will be back for another visit. Thank you Butch for sharing this beautiful and relaxing getaway. 🎃

It's amazing! Can't wait to come back again

  • 5 of 5

It was awesome! I came up with my 13 year old daughter and three of her friends for a little end of summer adventure! The place is perfect for a single mom because everything is there for you... the kayaks and mountain bikes... tubes for the river. There was even a vehicle with racks to take the kayaks down to the lake. The girls had a great time kayaking... tubing... fishing ... hot tubbing .... watching movies once the sun went down and they were able to snap chat and post things to their walls because of the internet while in the cabin:).

The best place to stay in northern Idaho !!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Little Moose Cabin this summer. The week was AMAZING !!! Thank you so much Butch for sharing your lovely place with us. After over 1800 miles was so nice to walk in such a pretty cabin. Everything was perfect hot tub was ready waiting for us ,that was what doctor order after long trip !!! You thought about everything creating your cabin . We enjoyed our stay we love little places close to nature The log cabin remain me the part of the world where I grew up. Even the taste of the huckleberries is very similar. We did hiking bicycling fishing kayaking we saw lots of pretty waterfalls we even took couple trips to Glacier National Park . Was very hard to leave your lovely place we hope to come back in the near future with rest of our family. We are advertising your place around our friends and family they keep on asking how did we found your place

Thank you so much Butch Maria Joe and Michael
