"The place and location is just vintage Montana. We shared the cabin with another family and enjoyed it immensely. We stayed for a week in late July. We chose this cabin because it looked rustic and had 10 acres and was not right on Flathead Lake, so we figured it would be more secluded. The place is beyond the pictures shown online and blew us away. There were deer constantly crossing the property along with a family of wild turkeys. The river was great and there were kayaks and canoes and paddles, vests- just don't stand up quickly in the canoe as they tip and the plastic benches that are available for the canoes don't float! There were about 10 bikes in the shed, and more toward the newer side. I had inquired about fishing rods and the owner was kind enough to purchase rods and some tackle BEFORE our trip out there. The cabin is quaint and quintessential country. We turned on the radio to a country station and left it there the whole trip. The kitchen is stocked with everything you would need and there is also a grill outside. The location is ideal, very quiet and off the beaten path. The views are spectacular. I can't imagine how beautiful (and downright cold) the winter must be. The river is slow moving and easy to navigate and deep enough for swimming- Very refreshing, even when not falling out of a canoe. There are amazing cherry stands all over the place along the roads, the small town is great and apparently Big Fork is the center for stage theatre in Montana- We saw a comedic play there and the kids loved the ice cream places. They also have some great places to dine. The location is close enough to the airport and to Glacier Nat'l Park and to a variety of horseback riding places, hiking trails. The place is very large, so early birds can get up go downstairs and not disturb the others. Lots of places to read a book, lots of games at the place, the next door plot had horses that the girls would go out to see and pet and feed daily. It was really a great get away. The entire Flathead lake area is just so country and rural that it just felt good to be there and we wish we had had more time. There is just so much to do here. The owner, Valerie, and property manager, Deb, are just great people. They were invested in our stay and eager to please. I fear I have said too much, yet I can't say enough. We will be heading back soon, we will make more time as this was hands down, our favorite vacation and our favorite rental."
