About the property

Rebecca and I welcome you to Cherry Pines. To see additional photos we invite you to click on our website link below. The photos will provide you a better understanding of the properties layout, scenery and accommodations. Also, just an FYI, we rent to one group at a time. Therefore, if you rent two of the cabins the third will not be rented during your stay. Cherry Pines is located 13 miles south of Bigfork, Montana on Flathead Lake's east shore.

Our comfortable lake house and cozy guest cabins sit on 15 acres with 450 feet of private beach. Rebecca and I have tried our best to outfit each cabin with all the amenities of home. We reside on the property with our 2 children while maintaining the buildings, grounds, and orchard. We are there if needed, however respect our guests' privacy and keep a fair distance. Our hope is you are as comfortable at Cherry Pines as you are in your own home. Below is a description of the cabins and property.

The LAKE HOUSE has 2 bedrooms each with a queen bed. One bedroom has an adjoining bathroom while the other bathroom is shared. There is also a loft with two twin beds.

The MONTANA CABIN sits about 75 yards from the Lake House and features a sitting area, queen bed, kitchenette and full bath.

The CHERRY CABIN is a short walk from the others and offers one bedroom with queen bed as well as a sleeping porch with two bunk beds. The two sleeping areas (sleeps 6) are adjoined by a full bath. The Cherry cabin also has a living area with a rock, wood burning fireplace, a dining area, and a full kitchen.

Each cabin includes a patio with furniture and a barbeque grill. In addition, the cabins are equipped with satellite TV and DVD players. The Lake Cabin has wireless internet.

The property's pebbled shoreline is ideal for wading in the water with children, swimming, and rock collecting. Beach chairs and umbrellas make this a relaxing spot for shade seekers and page turners as well. Our spacious dock provides ample room for sunning or casting a fishing line. We also have a mooring ball for your boat or rental boat. In addition there is a wood burning sauna at the water's edge.

In the evening enjoy stunning sunsets while playing horseshoes on the lawn, eating supper on the deck, resting in one of the hammocks or roasting marshmallows in one of the bonfire pits. Guests who stay with us in August enjoy eating fresh cherries, peaches, nectarines, apricots and plums from our orchard.

Whether it is views of the water or views of the mountains, Cherry Pines offers them in every direction!

We look forward to meeting you and your family and or friends. Please let us know if we can be of any help.

Absolutely wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Cherry Pines is a fabulous place with a wonderful owner! We could not believe that we were staying in such a beautiful place with owner's as gracious and welcoming as John and his family. They were very attentive to our needs and shared their delicious cherries with us. This is the best place we have found for our family get togethers. The kids said it was probably the best vacation ever. All the adults agreed. Lots of room in the large cabin for cooking and eating together, a boat dock for our rental and swimming, fire pit to roast marshmallows and share time together at night. This place has it all and the views were stunning. It is close to Glacier and lots of other outdoor activities. Also close to run to the grocery store for supplies. I could not give it a higher rating and have already recommended Cherry Pines to friends. Thank you John for an incredible vacation!

Perfect setting for a wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were only able to book a short time at Cherry Pines, we left wishing we had at least two more weeks to spend there. We had all three cabins and they were all comfortable, well equipped and beautiful. We all slept well and were pleasantly tired from our outdoor activities. Such a wonderful place to relax and get away from it all.

There were three generations on this trip and the setting was perfect for all. The grounds were well kept, beautifully landscaped and so relaxing. We could look out the windows at a spectacular view....but why stay inside when you could relax on the large deck with an amazing view. I could see the kids fishing or paddle boarding from the deck. The weather was perfect and the evenings were so enjoyable around the fire pit. Horse shoe competitions were held, while some of us just relaxed in the hammocks and watched.

Bigfork was nearby-a very cute town. Hard to leave the peace and quiet of this setting....but just changed it up a bit with the shops and art galleries nearby, fun. Glacier National Park one day, very awesome.

John was great to work with and was nearby if needed.

We will be back. A great vacation, everyone loved it.

Amazing Vacation Rental!!! Booking 3year in a row!!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is by far the best place we have stayed, we have 14 family members and rent all three cabins and this will be our 3rd year in a row! They have everything you would need At home and more! Friendly service and very reliable if you need anything last minute. It is very homey and beautiful, we like to just spend many days on the deck just relaxing and over looking the lake. They had paddle boards for the kids and adults that was a huge hit. The first summer we booked before we left, the next summer we were going to find something new and everyone kept going back to the fact that this rental and the accommodations were excellent and everyone wanted to go back to the cherry pines cabin! We had so many fun things to go and do (river rafting, glaciers, horseback riding and of course shopping and eating) all with in close distance. So we are headed back!! And all cannot wait! Thank you Cherry Pines!!!!

Great family reunion facility!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 (three generations) spent a glorious week at Cherry Pines this summer. We rented the three cabins so each family had their own space yet the Lake Cabin was very adequate to accommodate the twelve of us for cooking, eating meals and family activities. The three cabins are spread out so privacy is there if desired. The main kitchen was very well supplied with all that we needed to cook for the week and the large porch ended up a great meal location.

The lake front and dock were fantastic with hours spent playing water games and using the paddle boards. The dock is a downhill walk from the cabins but not too far. We all enjoyed nightly gatherings around one or the other of the two campfire locations, generally followed by a "chocolate dip" in the lake.

Facility is well maintained, close to shopping and other amenities. John was a great host,! We are already signed up for 2015!

Family gathering 2013

  • 5 of 5

Over the years we have encouraged our children and their families to gather and spend time with each other away from the normal busyness of life by providing opportunities to do so. Cherry Pines was one of the best of those gatherings. The Flathead Valley is absolutely beautiful and Cherry Pines with its nice cabins, private shore access to the lake, the dock, and proximity to Bigfork and the area surpassed our expectations. The water around the dock was crystal clear, great for swimming and snorkeling. We boated, paddle boarded, played horseshoes, barbequed, laid in the hammocks, took family pictures, went into town for ice cream, went hiking, site seeing and sat around the camp fire making s'mores. One of our daughters said that we were setting the bar pretty high for them when they are grandparents. John was very willing help out when we needed him, but otherwise was up working in the Cherry Orchard but available. Thank you for making such a nice home away from home available for us to rent.

One-of-a-kind Vacation property

  • 5 of 5

We gathered for a family reunion at Cherry Pines and found everything even better than the website described. The cabins are set among a beautiful cherry orchard, gently sloping down to Flathead Lake. The Lake House provides a perfect gathering spot for everyone, easily holding the whole crowd for meals. John is a wonderful host, always available to answer questions about the property and surrounding area.
