Overview

Columbia Falls Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)

A cozy cabin sitting beside a beautiful mountain lake is what you'll find at Serene Lakefront Cabin. Experience the wonder of nature with wildlife all around. Deer, beaver, bear, wolves and otter make their home in this mountain paradise. Hear the call of the loons, the screech of the eagles and the stunning silence of the night. Relax around the campfire or roast some marshmallows as you watch the sunset across the lake. You can row our boat out on the lake to catch some cutthroat trout and there is easy fishing for perch right off the private dock in front of the cabin.

Serene Lakefront cabin is conveniently located 20 minutes from Glacier Park International Airport and 10 minutes from the charming town of Columbia Falls. Only a short drive (20 minutes) to Glacier National Park, our cabin is perfectly situated to allow you to enjoy all the recreational opportunities the area has to offer.

The cabin is located on Spoon Lake, right off the North Fork Road and only a few minutes from the western park boundary. Our location offers convenient access to all the hiking, fishing, rafting and recreational spots along the North Fork of the Flathead River. From your base at Serene Lakefront Cabin you can set out and explore. Hike the national park trails and take in the stunning beauty of Kintla and Bowman Lakes in the less traveled portion of the park. From highway 2, you can reach Apgar Village at the main west entrance to Glacier National Park. From there, drive the spectacular. Going to the Sun road to Logan pass where mountain goats roam free.

Serene Lakefront Cabin is conveniently located close to Columbia Falls. Explore and shop in the quintessential western town of Kalispell, just 25 miles away, and enjoy the charm and culture of Whitefish only 18 miles away. Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, is just 35 miles to the south.

Back at Serene Lakefront Cabin the pace can slow, allowing all your cares to melt away. The peaceful waters of Spoon Lake are a perfect setting with no motorboats or jet skis to disturb the wildlife. We focus on the outdoor experience and our cozy cabin provides the opportunity to come close together as family and friends. You can cook in the easy access kitchen while you watch the activities on the lake. Barbecue on the gas grill or warm yourself and play games in front of the elegant Waterford gas stove after a fine day of hiking, shopping or exploring. Climb the stairs to the cozy bedroom complete with king bed and two twin beds, or open the futon in the living room and sleep right in front of the glowing fire. On warm days let the breeze blow through and smell the mountain air.

Enjoy a discount by booking stay dates before June 15th or after September 15th. These times offer a quieter and slower paced experience by avoiding the crowds of the peak season. In the spring you can catch hungry fish and watch as the wildlife emerges from the long winter. In the fall enjoy the colors of the turning tamarack trees while watching the wildlife prepare for the coming winter. If our calendar is full for the dates you are interested in, ask about the availability of the nearly identical adjacent cabin.

If our calendar is full for the dates you are interested in, or if you have a larger group that would like two cabins, we recommend you check the availability of the adjacent cabin at VRBO listing #221527 or Homeaway listing 905880.

July 13, 2014

We enjoyed spending the last few days of our honeymoon here. Our only complaint is that the time went too fast! We loved hiking in Glacier, strolling around the town of Whitefish and having fires & S’mores. The lake is so peaceful and it was fun hearing the loons. We also enjoyed using the rowboat. Thanks so much for your hospitality. It was a very special trip and we look forward to returning!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here on Spoon Lake. We saw and heard the loons each morning – amazing how long they stay under when they dive! Our girls enjoyed fishing form the dock and a few boat rides with dad. As others have mentioned, we were shocked at how well stocked the kitchen is! After two days in GNP, we were disappointed to have seen no wildlife other than birds and chipmunks, but tonight by the campfire a beautiful doe decided to stroll by. We are so happy to have shared this peaceful “Serene Lakefront Cabin” here in Montana.

Excellent week at Spoon Lake. Loved the lake, the loons, ducks, humming birds and bunnies. Enjoyed eating outdoors, lucking out with a week of glorious weather and very few bugs.

Serene Cabin is a jewel! We’ve enjoyed our time in Montana, which was our 1st. Glacier Park far exceeded our expectations and the cabin si a peaceful retreat from hiking all day. Sitting around the fire pit and grilling was great. Loved the black skillet…it works great on the grill for frying bacon or hash browns. The cabin is well stocked and we appreciate that. Rowing the boat around the lake and catching a few fish was fun too. We highly recommend the Red Bus Tour while in the Park. It’s money well spent. Can’t wait to share our pictures and Montana experience with our friends down south. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay here has been amazing. We hope to return next summer. The Kids caught many fish...jigging off the dock (around &:30 seems to be the best time) and swam a ton. We feel very blessed to have experienced the peace and beauty of this cabin on Spoon Lake and have made some great memories.

Great cabin, great location; not enough time!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed everything. Cabin comfortable and had everything we needed. We could drive to Glacier Park easily and enjoyed no crowds at all. Although some of the trails were not fully open due to snow covered hills. Try breakfast or another meal at Two Medicine Grill. You'll eat with the locals and enjoy wonderful home cooked food. We could have easily spent the week just staying at the cabin and all it had to offer and still have had a relaxing vacation. Thanks.

Truly Serene!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at this cabin with my sister, brother-in-law and niece and nephew for a week. Initial reaction when we arrived is that the cabin was much smaller than expected but we quickly found that it was the perfect size since we spent most of our time outside by the water, firepit, or on the deck. Fridge is small but we made it work, supplemented with coolers. Great shower, the kitchen was perfectly stocked with dishes, pans, and bowls. The driveway was as steep as others described - would not recommend driving down the hill to unload. Great location too, only 9 miles to Columbia Falls - wend in to laundromat one day and bought an extra fan as it was in the mid-90s when we were there. Cooled off nicely at night. Highly recommend this site, was nice to unwind by the lake after a day of hiking.

A Beautiful Lake

  • 3 of 5
My 3 star rating is due to two things. The stairs in the cabin are actually a steep 11 step ladder attached to an opening in the floor of the second story. I believe this should have been very clearly pointed out for those of us who could climb "stairs" but find a ladder difficult. I ended up buying an air mattress and sleeping on the floor downstairs while my companion used the futon. The other reason concerns the owners request to not park by the cabin but at the top of the driveway. The driveway is very steep, as indicated in the description of the property, and we had no problem with our AWD car but my companion was not able to walk up or down the drive and I did not want to make such a long steep walk, especially when early in the morning or at night when dark. I realize that these issues are not a problem for many visitors, but they did have a negative impact on our enjoyment of the cabin.

On a more positive note, the location was perfect. The lake is beautiful. The first day we saw a bald eagle, a great blue heron and of course the loons. One of my fondest memories is sitting out on the porch early in the morning wrapped in a blanket with a cup of Montana huckleberry coffee watching the loon family and listening to the birds. It was so peaceful and beautiful. We made several trips to GNP (using the Blankenship road shortcut) including several trips across the Going-to-the-Sun Road. We visited the Two Medicine and Many Glacier areas via route 2 and even saw a mountain goat at the Goat Lick Overlook. In our hope to see a moose we took some of the less travelled roads including one to Polebridge. It was a great drive but no moose.

Owner's Response: We were happy to hear that this guest enjoyed the cabin and location. We are sorry that they had to sleep downstairs. We do show pictures of the ladder/stairs that access the upstairs bedroom on the web site and we will state that in the caption and description for future guests. We spoke with this guest on the phone prior to the rental about the driveway and explained that the last 75 feet are steep and not recommended for anything other than 4 wheel drive. Our cabin may not be appropriate for those who have difficulties walking on slopes or accessing the stair/ladder. We are glad that in spite of those difficulties they were able to enjoy the wildlife and peaceful setting all from the porch of the cabin.

The perfect Glacier get away!

  • 5 of 5
This was truly the perfect place for our annual Glacier getaway! They have thought of everything and then some!
The cabin was awesome and the setting was pristine! Our last morning there had us serenaded by loons AND a pack of wolves! The otter entertained us all week!
Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful cabin with us!

It really is Serene

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 6 was very happy with this cabin. We had perfect weather all week long. Some of us were die hard hikers and spent most days in Glacier NP, and some of us did shorter hikes and just enjoyed sitting out front with a good book and the lake as a back drop. I think we were too late for the loons, but there was a family of kingfishers that hung around and a few mergansers. The cabin is clean, well maintained, and very well equipped, but believe them when they say beware the driveway- we didn't take that quite seriously enough- thank goodness for AAA. My sister thought it a bit of a stretch to say 2 people could sleep on the convertible bed. Two small kids, maybe, but 2 adults was overly cozy.
My only mild disappointment, not related to the cabin, was that Going-to-the-Sun Road closed for a 16 mile stretch in the center two days after we arrived. Most of the best hiking, in my opinion, is on the east side, and to get there was a pretty lengthy drive around the south end of the park. We did the drive one day and hiked up to the Grinnell Glacier, which was absolutely the best hike of the week, and totally worth it, but driving 5 hrs RT is not something you'd want to do every day. I'd probably have looked for a rental on the east side of the park if I'd done my homework and known about the road closure. Or maybe not- my mom really loved the lake.

Owner's Response: Vacationers love our location on the lake and we are always glad to hear that you had a great time. Glacier National Park is a big place with lots to see and do. There are great hikes on the west side too if you know where to go.

The cabin driveway is gravel and leads to the front door, but the last 75 feet down to the lake are steep. We recommend that you park your car at the top and walk that last bit, although most people do drive down. If you have a rear wheel drive car you might have a problem.

The downstairs bed is a standard double size futon. While two people can sleep in it, it is cozy. If you have 6 in your party you might want to check out Aspen Shores Cabin which is next door and almost identical except it has a queen size sleeper sofa. (HomeAway p905880 or VRBO 221527).

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cabin sits on a very peaceful lake and the quietness of the area made our stay here wonderful. We saw loons regularly and enjoyed watching them swim, feed and hearing them call out to one another. The cabin was well equipped with necessities and the king bed was very comfortable! We took advantage of the grill for cooking and enjoyed several campfires several times. A very nice getaway and conveniently close to Glacier National Park. Thank you.
