About Nancy Moen
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.
Nancy Moen purchased this cabin in 1980
Why Nancy Moen chose Canyon Ferry
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.
What makes this cabin unique
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Returned for another wonderful family vacation. This time fished a great deal in rented craft from Kim's Marina. Caught Walleye and 3 kinds of trout. Observed a "super moon" and some spectacular thunderstorms on the deck. Went over to the Vigilante Campground near York and hiked the Trout Creek Canyon hike - Quite gentle for us "young seniors" and perfect for novice hikers. Beautiful scenery. Thank you, Carroll and Nancy, for your wonderful hospitality as always. Already looking forward to our next visit.
