Martin City Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 - 4)
This quaint cottage is a cozy place to base your next vacation. Come for a rejuvenating, UNPLUGGED getaway. Lovely 2 bedroom cottage that sleeps 4 comfortably only 12 minutes from Glacier National Park.
This updated home has slate floors in the entryway, solid wood floors in the kitchen, and original wood floors in the living room. The living room has a gas fireplace to take the chill out of the cool evenings. A large covered patio overlooks Abbot Creek and is the perfect place to wind down or 'wine' down after a day of sightseeing in Glacier Park or hiking, climbing, fishing or even shopping in Whitefish, Bigfork or Kalispell.
The Cottage has private off-street parking large enough to park a boat and trailer for use on the many area lakes.
The property has 70 feet of beautiful Abbot Creek running along its southern border. Abbot Creek is a year-round babbling mountain stream that can soothe your stress and rejuvenate your soul.
This home sits on the original homestead property and belonged to the owner's Great Aunt who was the daughter of the original homesteaders of Martin City. Martin City is the small town nearest the property. The owner's Father helped set the first turbine in the historic Hungry Horse Dam which is nearby.
Enjoy a scenic 12-minute drive to Glacier National Park; the Flathead river is a short hike from the cottage. Whitefish, Kalispell, and Columbia Falls are all within a 15-40 minute drive.

About Gabriela Egging
Abbott Creek Cottage belonged to my great Aunt Rose, the daughter of some of the original homesteaders inside the Canyon. It sits on part of the original homestead. The Cottage has been updated many times but the living room is the original cabin.
My father set the first turbine in Hungry Horse Dam just 3 miles from the Cottage. As a little girl my brothers and sisters and I would fish in Abbott Creek and sail our paper boats on feast days... Many a summer afternoon was spent walking the Creek to the Middle Fork of the Flathead River and picnicking along the way! A rough trek by any standards!
I was raised in Martin City, one of twelve siblings! My parents owned a grocery store, meat market and lockers near mile marker #144! The new highway took our home and store.
