About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms, 2 full Bath, (Sleeps10-12)

This charming fully furnished rustic cabin was a resort cabin in the 1940’s on Western Montana’s scenic Flathead Lake. It was fully remodeled in 2004 but it’s character was preserved as the authentic log walls and natural wood floors were refurbished. In 2017 an addition was added to the cabin further updating the cabin and providing more space and a second kitchen. The cabin has two gas fireplaces, two living rooms, two fully furnished kitchens and two decks with close up lake view. The cabin offers visitors a warm, homey feel to relax. The boat dock was rebuilt in 2013. The lakeshore was updated in 2017 with new seawall and improved landscaping allowing more lounging space.

Updated luxuries make this cozy cabin a peaceful retreat. Washer and dryer are provided as well. Decor includes antlers and hides native to Montana such as an elk hide bedspread and deer antlers on the bedroom walls. In addition to a master bedroom with a view of the lake and log queen bed there are four guest bedrooms. Two have queen beds; one in a loft room the other with lake view. The other two guest rooms have two log bunk beds per room. It's the perfect family stay for visitors with children. The cabin has a cherry orchard where visitors can enjoy famous regional Flathead cherries to their hearts content during cherry season (end of July to beginning of August).

Close up views of the lake can be seen throughout the interior cabin. Step outside the front door and you are steps away from stairs that lead to the lake. The stairs lead you down to a large cement patio with a built in fire pit and boat dock attached to the patio and a lawn area to lounge. The patio includes a picnic table, lounge chairs and sun umbrella. The lake is so close to the cabin you can stand on the deck above the patio and boat dock, and throw a stone into the lake. The pristine lake is clear and perfect for swimming, fishing, boating, jet skiing, kayaking, paddle boarding or just lounging around in an inflatable raft by the boat dock. Islands on the lake are nearby and can be visited by jet ski or boat. We have had several repeat visitors who have been renting the cabin every year since it's become available, as it has become their favorite place to get away for a peaceful retreat as well.

The cabin is only 7 miles from the nearest town and about 20 minutes from Big Fork, a great tourist destination. Enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Mission Mountains, Mission & Flathead valleys and Flathead Lake on your way to Glacier National Park, The Bison Range, and other Federal & State Parks all within a 2 hour drive or less. The lake is surrounded by State Parks that allow camping and have boat ramps. The perfect retreat for a visit in Big Sky Country.

Discounts may apply for multiple weeks or out of season rentals. ONE WEEK MINIMUM STAY. Reservations go from Sunday to Sunday unless approved by owner. Additional cleaning fees and a bed tax apply. No smoking. Boats will need to be put in the lake in at the nearby Finley Point State Park. Boat dock may not be used for overnight mooring and boats should not be kept at the dock if the weather is unfavorable. Owner/Property Management Company is not liable for damage to watercraft if occurs. Parking for RVs or boats must be pre-approved by owner.

About Brad Roe

Flathead Lake is a magical destination that has created many lifelong memories for me and my spouse, all involving family and friends. We have family that grew up in the area and I use to visit the lake with my wife when we were younger and dating, dreaming of one day owning a place on the lake. After marriage and having children we were able to purchase the old resort cabin as a vacation home and fully restore it to its former glory with updated touches that make it warm and welcoming. We live a couple of hours away so we are able to maintain the cabin and visit it regularly.

Brad Roe purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Brad Roe chose Polson

The pristine lake, water activities and mountainous views are breathtaking. Nature is right out your front door and the cabin is tucked away just enough that you feel like you've escaped the daily demands of life. We still go there to get away and just be a family. Every visit builds more incredible memories for our family and friends. Visitors are still close enough to town that they can jump in the car and visit Polson or Bigfork for entertainment and sightseeing, all less than a half hour away.

What makes this cabin unique

It's a special opportunity to lodge in a restored old cabin and have the best of both worlds; the old and the new. The best thing about Flathead Lake is the simplicity and beauty of the destination. The cabin is on a cherry orchard so there's nothing better than picking a fresh bowl of cherries right off the trees during cherry season and walking down to the lake to eat the cherries in the sun with your feet hanging off the boat dock. Jet skiing is a great way to see the lake and cool off or you can pack a picnic lunch and head out to visit an island on the lake and fish, watch the wildlife or just explore. Gathering around the fire pit and roasting marshmallows or hot dogs and watching the sun set is another family favorite. It's the perfect place to hunker down and relax taking a dip in the lake when you feel like it and then reading a book as you sit by the water and lay in the sun. Visitors can also enjoy cooking a nice meal as they watch the view of the lake from the window. After a long day of sightseeing you can enjoy a soak in the jetted tub and cozy up to the gas fire place. Another simple pleasure is eating a nice meal as you sit on the deck overlooking the lake with a glass of wine. It's a little slice of heaven in Big Sky Country.

We stayed at this cabin last year and it's absolutely wonderful! It's exactly as described and more. Beautiful views from the cabin! The boat dock is big and convenient for close great fishing. Everything in the cabin was very nice and we had plenty of linens, dishes, hot water (on demand), and it has a very homey feel. Would recommend this rental!!!!
