Overview

Troy Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, Studio + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

This Amish-built log cabin is located right on Payne Creek on the western flank of the Cabinet Mountains. It includes a fully-equipped kitchen and bath, living room, and a large sleeping loft accessed by a spiral staircase. Also included are wireless internet and DVD/VHS player and library.

The 30 acre property is adjacent to the National Forest Service, and has over a mile of hiking trails through lush cedar-hemlock forest. Elk, deer, moose, black bears, and bald eagles are among many wild visitors to our property. A beautiful 60 foot waterfall on Payne Creek is just a 30 minute walk east into the National Forest Service.

Scenic Bull Lake is a half mile west, and boating and swimming access is available at Dorr Skeels National Forest Campground three miles northwest. The Bull River, just five miles south, has excellent trout fishing. The area has great hunting for elk, deer, moose, and turkey. There are several nearby trails into the Cabinet Mountain Wilderness area with access to beautiful glacial lakes.

Other nearby attractions include the lush old-growth cedar forest at Ross Creek Cedars Scenic area (eight miles west) and Kootenai Falls (18 miles northeast) which are the largest waterfalls between the Cascades and the Rockies. There are local cross country skiing trails. Nearby downhill ski resorts include Schweitzer Mountain (65 miles west) and Turner Mountain (50 miles north). Lake Pend Oreille is just 40 miles west in Idaho. The nearest major airport is in Spokane, Washington 140 miles west. Glacier National Park is a three hour drive east.

Each year there are three to five great traditional outdoor country music festivals at the Halfway House bar and grill just down the road.

The area is a favorite scenic bicycle tour destination. It is home to the annual Scenic Tour of the Kootenai River (STOKR) in May and the Cycle Hard for Education (CHaFE 150) tour.

There is great rafting on the Kootenai and Yaak rivers as well as seasonal rafting on several other streams. We can provide transportation and logistical support for raft trips.

About Randy Farr, Owner

I fell in love with this area while working as a geologist for the US Geological Survey in 1978. Amazingly when I returned looking for property to purchase in 2001, I found that this beautiful quiet secluded corner of Montana had somehow remained a wonderful well-kept secret.

Randy Farr, Owner purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Randy Farr, Owner chose Troy

I chose this 30 acre property because it contained a beautiful diverse conifer forest and snow-fed stream which bisects it. It affords privacy for both my home on the eastern edge of the property and the visitors to the cabin on the western edge. Being next to National Forest Service land was also a must!

What makes this cabin unique

Great views and a waterfall just off the property to the east!

Centrally located for easy day trips to the Pend Oreille area in Idaho and the Kootenai Valley. Lots to see and do!

AWESOME VACATION GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
The Payne Creek Cabin that we rented from Randy was awesome! We drove from Florida to Montana in 3 days, just over 2700 miles, and arrived at the cabin about 2pm on Monday, September 1st. The cabin was exactly like described and represented in the pictures. It was nicely stocked with everything someone would need to spend a week, to include cooking utensils, sheets, towels, etc. The cabin was very peaceful and the Payne Creek flowing right by the cabin was very relaxing. We saw several deer around the cabin almost daily, to include 3 bachelor bucks walking up the gravel road in front of the cabin on our first morning. The turkeys came by a few times. We used Randy's "things to do list" and seen almost everything on the list, with the exception of Spruce Lake. My Wife and I drove to Spar Lake and it was beautiful. As we left there, we attempted to find Spruce Lake and followed the signs until we came to a mountain road that was very untraveled and ended up stopping at a point on the other side of Spruce lake, but we never could find out how to get down to the lake. Kootenai falls was breathtaking, and the Road to the Sun in Glacier National Park was awe inspiring to say the least. We saw elk, pronghorn antelopes, 3 baby black bears, and 5 mountain goats. It was a trip of a lifetime. We will be planning another trip back to stay in Randy's Payne Creek Cabin, after our back sides get un-flattened from the 38 hour drive from Montana back to Florida. Randy, thank you very much for allowing my Wife and I the pleasure of renting your very nice cabin near Bull Lake! The Shoup Family!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review and glad you made it back to Texas safely. You were great guests and hope to see you again. In spite of your kind review, there were a few glitches during your stay at the cabin and I am definitely working on avoiding those in the future.

Cute little cabin

  • 4 of 5
Very clean, well stocked, and in a beautiful location. The owner was very helpful. It is an excellent place to stay if you want to be near Bull Lake and Ross Creek Cedars. The cabin only sleeps four comfortably. We were without power for the last night and morning of our stay so that put a little damper on things. The waterfalls nearby are worth the hike.
