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

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.

AWAY FROM IT ALL

  • 5 of 5
Our Montana stay with our friends, the Woods, at Nancy & Carroll's cabin was a chance to steal away from the noise of the world & just listen to nature. The cabin itself is historic, having been built in the late 1800's. But authentic as it is, it sports most of the modern conveniences including wifi. It sits at the edge of lovely Canyon Ferry Lake where we could sit on the porch swings or at the table on the side deck & watch the sail boats & ospreys entertain us.

Nancy & Carroll are very helpful & accommodating, not to mention being an artist & an artisan respectively.

If you are addicted to TV or find serenity not to your liking, then, perhaps, you should take yourself off to Vegas. If you appreciate a chance to extract yourself from 24/7 responsibility in a beautiful setting, contact Nancy.

Our family stayed in this cabin for one week and enjoyed everything about it! The beauty of the lake and countryside was breathtaking. The cabin was so cozy and comfortable. It was immaculate, decorated so tastefully and everything we needed was included. The owner's made us feel very welcome and we hated to leave.

We have already recommended it to several friends and could not have been happier!

A CHARMING PIECE OF HISTORY IN A FABULOUS LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in the log cabin was lovely. This is a magical place that takes you back in time, and allows you to take modern convenience with you! The house is equipped with everything from firewood to build a cozy fire in the huge stone fireplace indoors or in the firepit outdoors, to refridgerators both indoors and out, truly the best of yesterday and today. The decor is so interesting, with bits of days gone by and artwork tucked in every corner, but in a very liveable non-museum way.

The cabin was spotlessly clean, the location peaceful and very scenic, and the hosts were accomodating and friendly. A short drive of 17 miles took us into Helena to enjoy the sights there, and interesting drives in any direction took us to historic sites in the state.

We would heartily recommend this holiday rental.

UNEQUALLED HOSPITALITY!

  • 5 of 5
Our recent week-long stay with our family at this property totally exceeded our expectations! The cabins were clean, quiet and comfortable, quaint and well-decorated in period accessories, well stocked with kitchen essentials, as well as games for the rainy days. The owners were very helpful and friendly, the local marinas and restaurants/bars were close, fun, and friendly, too! We have already booked our stay for next year!

HEAVENLY. "WELL MAINTAINED" IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. WE WOULD HAPPILY LIVE THERE PERMANENTLY.

Is there a picture in your mind of an iconic Montana cabin? Here it is and you can live it. We did for ten days and found it difficult to leave.
The owners, Nancy and Carroll Moen could not have been more gracious. Shortly before the 4th of July they even dropped off flags for our celebration. They are collectors extraordinaire. Even in ten days there was not enough time to appreciate all of the artifacts in this cabin. The shower in the master suite was made from a hose nozzle formerly used by the San Francisco fire department. Fanciful and fabulous. There were enough cooking utensils, etc. to feed an army. There is an excellent collection of board games and reading material.
We spent much of our time on the large deck which has gorgeous views of the lake. Deer came up to wait to be hand fed from the feed that Nancy and Carroll keep nearby. We made many meals on the brand new gas grill with provisions from grocery stores in Helena. There is also a fire pit for roasting marshmallows as you gaze at the stars at night. We saw shooting stars and the milky way.

There is a rocky beach across the road in front of the house. Steep stairs lead to it. Our family and grandchild loved it, but hard to reach for the elderly. There are plenty of other beaches to explore along the lake. They can be reached by car in about ten minutes. Would highly recommend Orchard Beach for families.
Helena is only 30 minutes away. It has excellent mountain biking and hiking, brew pubs, restaurants, art galleries, museums, and The Golden Girls antique mall where Nancy Moen has a booth.
Our family members also hiked near Canyon Ferry -- Refrigerator trail.
We rented both a pontoon boat and fishing boats from Kim's marina and ate a lovely dinner at another marina within walking distance of the cabin.
When we were there the temperature was in the 90's and there is no air conditioning. The third floor master suite was very hot but the Moen's provided a very powerful fan. It always cools down at night and we slept comfortably.

Wi-fi is available on the deck and in the kitchen, but cell phone service can be sketchy. If you cannot function without a daily dose of TV or cruise type entertainment in the evenings, food magically appearing, taxi's, daily maid service, or video games, this place is not for you. The best show is the stars at night and they are worth staying up late for. We relaxed in a complete "get away" family experience. One of our best vacations ever!
