Property type cabin


About the property

Studio Cabin queen log bed + futon couch, 1 Bath, Designed for 2

Historic hand-hewn Log Studio Cabin Rental nestled in a 5 acre organic cherry orchard with outstanding Flathead Lake views. Fully restored with antique furnishings. The cabin is located 15 miles south of Bigfork. The cabin is not located on the water, but is conveniently located about 1/2 mile from the Yellow Bay State Park. (Approx 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk) Designed for 2 people, this 400 square foot log cabin rental also has a small lay down (not pull out) couch.

The great Covered Porch has rustic log posts that frame the incredible Flathead Lake and Wild Horse Island views. It is a short drive (or walk) to the Yellow Bay State Park, public beach and boat ramp. Peaceful and private in the Flathead Valley of Northwest Montana.

Built in 1932, this log cabin was hand hewn from trees taken to clear the surrounding cherry orchards. Built as a homesteader's cabin when the east lake shore was a very remote location with few families living at Yellow Bay, and the only access was via a 2-track dirt road.

The cabin has been completely restored, creating a warm cozy retreat with the charm of a by-gone era. Retaining the original logs, floors, windows and aged patina were very important, while adding all the modern amenities one would expect.

The cabin has a queen size log bed as well as a lay-down, futon-style couch and wood stove. Fully equipped kitchen & bath, and a covered porch with gas barbecue overlooking Flathead Lake. There is no tv or phone, which suits most guests just fine. But we do have wireless internet, and cell service is available.

We hope that you enjoy this little piece of Montana history. It is a very special place to us and to all our visitors from around the world.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 1 night for a birthday getaway and it was fantastic. We really enjoyed the rustic/vintage feel of the place, and thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside by the fire pit taking in the beautiful view of the lake. The wood stove inside was perfect for that cozy cabin feeling. Overall we loved this little cabin.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great review. Winter is a really fun time to be at the log cabin. While it is snowy and cold outside the rustic cabin is cozy inside with the a warmth of the wood stove. We are glad you could enjoy the holidays with us.

Loved the quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as advertised. I chose this cabin for our 20th wedding anniversary. We had taken trips in other years to city's and adventures but I deliberately chose this one for it's promise of quiet and rest. And it was perfect! We stayed three nights during the off season, early December. We spent time together with a fire in the wood stove and remembered why we had began this journey together 20 years ago. The cabin had everything we needed for simple meals and quiet times. In the afternoons we would drive to Big Fork for some entertainment and dinning. Thanks for peace and quiet and relaxation.
