PAYNE CREEK CABIN JUST A HALF MILE FROM BEAUTIFUL BULL LAKE

Troy Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, Studio + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

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.

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

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!

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!

EXCELLENT! IT HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED + MORE!!

  • 5 of 5
Love this place. One of the most memorable stays i have had. Cabin is rustic and nicely built. It is also furnished NICELY with tonnes of amenities. I would love to stay longer. Owner Randy instructions and hiking info around the area was thoughtful. Love the little note book with comments from other renters with their experience. Had a broke down with the gas oven, jim came over almost immediately and fixed it for us no issues and Jim was EXTREMELY Friendly. I might have to make plans and maybe stay longer during my Christmas break :D

The ONLY thing I wish there was, would be a wood burning fireplace / Stove; but not a deal breaker.

QUIET GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Even though we live here in Montana staying at this cabin afforded us the opportunity to explore the area without having to drive 3hrs home every night. The cabin was well stocked with supplies and is quite cozy, but I would bring extra warm clothes as it gets quite chilly at night. The owner has trail books and quite a list of places to explore while you are visiting the area.
