The book 'How It Looks Going Back' by Doris Knowles Pulis, was written about our property; it is literally a story-book escape. Enjoy your very own cabin-in-the-woods experience---complete with multiple cabins, towering Lodgepole Pine Trees with walking trails, a running river and private lake.
We have hosted many family reunions at Cyara Cabins. With 3 separate fully equipped cabins, lake, woods and 220 acres: its a perfect place/large space to get away from it all and soak up family/friends, nature's clean air and deep colors---and enjoy scads of outdoor recreation. Have canoe races, dive off kayaks or use paddle boats to traverse the lake. Bring your mountain bikes, badminton or fishing poles; or enjoy the 'game room' with ping pong, board games and carpet ball.
A river borders the property, allowing access for swimming, fishing and floating. A big fire pit by the lake offers a place to make s'mores, sing campfire songs and soak up Montana's Big Sky. Enjoy the tree-fort and hammock, walking trail around the lake and to a nearby waterfall.

A large, extended family owns this 220 acre property. We have been enjoying a yearly family reunion here for 15 plus years. For most of our children (and certainly the grandparents): this is the best week of their entire year. We anticipate our time together---at Cyara Cabins---all year long. We make plans for butterfly hunting, building tree-forts, making s'mores and setting up bike-and-boat relays. We made a tree-size sling shot once, go at it in ping-pong tournaments and take turns resting in the hammock. We pick flowers and play cards, swim and snap photos; we go on bike rides and long hikes, and enjoy leisurely walks around the lake. We barbecue, grill and picnic. When not enjoying our favorite week of the year (at Cyara Cabins) our families reside, work and go to school in varying locations across the Pacific Northwest (Seattle, Bellingham and Vancouver BC).
To escape. But not just to escape our busy lives or big cities; we bought it so we could escape TOGETHER. Our family keeps getting bigger---and lives just get busier. We don't always get to spend time together, especially living in different cities. When we go to Cyara Cabins we spend time together, re-tell our best stories and create new ones. Cousins play together, siblings catch-up, parents soak up everyone. Sure, its a few hours from Silverwood Theme Park (good for the drive-to or from), near Sandpoint, ID (so quaint!) and just 3 hours from Glacier National Park BUT we find we want to go straight there, and soak up every minute we have until we have to go home.
Lake is private---exclusive to guests and entirely on the property (catch-and-release fishing in lake). You see no neighbors, the property is large, private and 'all yours' for the duration of your stay. Includes vast acreage, 3 separate cabins and lots of opportunity to walk, boat, bike, swim, fish, cook, read, relax and more.
Hiking, waterfalls, fly-fishing; golf course 1 hour away (Libby). Silverwood Theme Park/Waterpark is 2 1/4 hours from property. Glacier National Park 3 hours from property. Catch-and-release fishing in private lake, mountain biking, large-scale water-gun-fights.
