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 SEPTEMBER 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.

Charming Montana Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I was nervous to book a cabin online, however this cabin exceeded our expectations! It was everything we could have asked for our Montana getaway! It was so quaint and charming. If you want peace and relaxation then this cabin is what you need. You are still close enough to town for restaurants and local shops. Would definitely stay here again. It was very clean and well kept.

Very lovely:)

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin. VERY traditional. It smells of old wood, which I absolutely love. I was only able to stay one night, but would have liked to of stayed much longer. The Cherries were delicious.

beautiful location and cabin with excellent service

  • 5 of 5

As the title indicates, we loved our stay at the Gibsons' cabin. The location is beautiful: cherry orchards, Flathead Lake clearly visible, and proximity to Glacier National Park, as well as to Bigfork, a charming town. The cabin is wonderfully cozy and equipped with all the basics, and the Gibsons provide excellent service while respecting our privacy. We hope to return at least once a year to savor the beauty and the ambiance.

A Montana experience - ALL complete

  • 5 of 5

Only one word "ALL" can describe our stay that the Authentic Montana Log Cabin. We experienced ALL of nature's beauty, ALL the quietness, ALL the surrounding day trips, All the privacy and hospitality. Celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary in the cabin was more than we could have imagined and left with our hearts full of ALL the wonder and peace that was found there. We are already making plans to make a return visit to this cabin and share this experience with other family members. Will definitely recommend a stay at this cabin. Thank you Mr George Gibson for the great customer service and for the attention to detail and keeping this cabin as Authentic as possible, it was very clean and well-maintained and provided all our needs. Only supply we needed was our personal belongings and food. See you next time.
