Carroll operates 2 restaurants, and Nancy is retired from General Motors. We love living in Montana, not far from the cabin, which is a second home.
We bought this home as a private get-away, and for family and friends, and are now opening it up to 'new' friends through VRBO. Carroll is a native Montanan, and Nancy is 'native' by choice.
We never tire of the lake views, and watching all the activity, including all types of boating. Wildlife in the area adds to the Montana experience. The large river rock wood-burning fireplace is a real treat on cool evenings. We also have a fire pit on the deck for toasting marshmallows and watching the stars.
