Overview

Flathead Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Studio Cabin queen log bed + futon couch, 1 Bath, Designed for 2 (Sleeps 2-4)

20% OFF AVAILABLE JUNE DATES- EMAIL TO RESERVE

Historic hand-hewn Log Studio Cabin Rental nestled in a 5 acre cherry orchard with outstanding Flathead Lake views. Fully restored with antique furnishings. The cabin is located 15 miles south of Bigfork. The cabin is not located on the water, but is conveniently located about 1/2 mile from the Yellow Bay State Park. (Approx 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk) Designed for 2 people, this log cabin rental can accommodate up to 4 guests.

The great Covered Porch has rustic log posts that frame the incredible Flathead Lake and Wild Horse Island views. It is a short drive (or walk) to the Yellow Bay State Park, public beach and boat ramp. Peaceful and private in the Flathead Valley of Northwest Montana.

Built in 1932, this log cabin was hand hewn from trees taken to clear the surrounding cherry orchards. Built as a homesteader's cabin when the east lake shore was a very remote location with few families living at Yellow Bay, and the only access was via a 2-track dirt road.

The cabin has been completely restored, creating a warm cozy retreat with the charm of a by-gone era. Retaining the original logs, floors, windows and aged patina were very important, while adding all the modern amenities one would expect.

The cabin has a queen size log bed as well as a lay-down, futon-style couch and wood stove. Fully equipped kitchen & bath, and a covered porch with gas barbecue overlooking Flathead Lake. There is no tv or phone, which suits most guests just fine. But we do have wireless internet, and cell service is available.

We hope that you enjoy this little piece of Montana history. It is a very special place to us and to all our visitors from around the world.

Quaint, peaceful and beautiful

My husband and I had such a lovely stay at the Gibsons log cabin. It was cozy, welcoming, and very comfortable. Hope we can go back, and I recommend to anyone that they visit this true gem on Flathead Lake.

fantastic homestead

  • 5 of 5

This was the 9th year we've stayed here. Keep returning and enjoy it just as much each time. Cabin is cozy, comfortable and homey. Love the wood stove to sit by, the beautiful scenery and walks in the woods nearby. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. A great choice for relaxation. Wonderful towns are close by for outings.

The perfect little cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that we stayed at this cabin, and it was no less relaxing than the first. What a cute little cabin with all the amenities one could want. The crackle of the wood stove. The distant sound of the radio. We even cooked a pretty big meal while we were there. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are so happy you enjoyed a nice winter stay in the little cabin. It is really fun in the winter, staying warm with the woodstove while it snows outside. Thanks for staying with us again, we really appreciate our return guests.

Cozy with breath taking views

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is actually a very old structure from 30's that has been moved to this spectacular location and renovated to a clean comfy little cabin. All furnitures have been selected carefully from real antiques. The location is closed to yellow bay state park where there is a nice little beach and picnic area.

We had a nice relaxing time sitting in the cabin's porch and making barque while enjoying the beautiful lake sceneries.

The only think I'd like to mention is the size of the cabin may not be suitable for 4 people. I'd recommend this place for couples seeking for romance and peace.

Even more than we expected

  • 5 of 5

Though we had only one night in this beautiful place it reached far beyond our expectations. We were looking for a place to relax in between backpacking trips in Yellowstone and Glacier, but when we pulled up to the cabin right as the sun set over Flathead Lake I instantly regretted booking only one night. This place is perfect down to every last detail. It felt like stepping back in/out of time while still having a place for every amenity you might need. Loved reading the history and the old guest books.

Definitely hope to be back someday!
