Columbia Falls Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This property is a warm, National Park style, private lodge with unique views of Glacier's jagged peaks and is available just two weeks per summer for weekly rentals only. Even visiting locals are surprised by the superior views from this spectacular estate called Cannonview, named after Cannon Mountain seen from the living room window. Constructed in 2002, your vacation destination is an architect-designed log lodge, custom-constructed of hand-peeled douglas fir trees from British Columbia.

Perched on 20 acres of wilderness bordering thousands of acres of US Forest Service, this warm, casual setting offers endless enjoyment of rustic northwest Montana. Perfect for a corporate board retreat, a multiple-family gathering, or even an intimate weekend, Cannonview is located 20 minutes from Glacier National Park, 60 minutes from Canada, 45 minutes from Kalispell, 60 minutes from Bigfork and Flathead Lake. You can decide how much privacy you want during your vacation here.

Relax outdoors in the oak rocking chairs on the extensive porch or indoors on the fine leather furniture in the living room. Regardless of group size, enjoy meals in the generous open kitchen/dining area connected to the great room. Treat Cannonview as your outpost for hiking/touring expeditions into the finest National Park just minutes away. For outdoor enthusiasts or those seeking a private getaway, we are confident you will be more than satisfied with your lodging choice and welcome your questions before making reservations. The Owners are hard-working professionals with masters' degrees and are parents of two wonderful boys. Their conscientious diligence translates to insuring that your expectations will be met during your stay at Cannonview Lodge.

Additional photos, Google Earth link and travel information are all available upon request.

About Stephen Smith

We are the Smith Family and are the proud owners of Cannonview Lodge near Glacier National Park, Montana. Stephen and Jodi Smith met each other while working at Swiftcurrent Motor Inn in Glacier National Park and it was their longtime dream to design and contruct Cannonview Lodge as close to the Park as possible. We know your stay here will be enjoyable whether you are a first time visitor of a returning regular.

Stephen Smith purchased this lodge in 2001

Why Stephen Smith chose Glacier Park

Glacier, Glacier, Glacier! Cannonview Lodge was inspired by the historic lodges found in Glacier National Park. Approximately 3 miles from the Park boundary, the property shares the ecosystem of Glacier National Park and often wildlife may be viewed from or near the property.

What makes this lodge unique

Unique views of Glacier National Park, arguably the best in the area! Ever heard of the Highline Trail that is carved into the Continental Divide? You can see this and dozens of Glacier Park peaks from the living room of Cannonview Lodge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cannonview is amazing! The pictures do not begin to show how spectacular the view is, or begin to show how wonderful the home is. This is truly a warm, cozy, comfortable home. We felt relaxed and at home the minute we got there. Stephen and Jodi are amazing and were so helpful. The house was immaculate , inside and out, and the kitchen was stocked with everything to make cooking a pleasure. Upon arrival we were greeted with Huckleberry jam and found the fireplace ready to go. All we had to do was light a match! Glacier is amazing and Cannonview made our visit there even better! You will find yourself never wanting to leave.

The house and surroundings were awesome!!. The views are incredible. A great place for the kids as well, there was plenty of stuff to occupy them in the evenings. It was a perfect launching point for our many trips into Glacier National Park. Very comfortable and spacious home. Huckleberries were growing all over the property and we made some great huckleberry pancakes. The owners are very attentive and responsive. They were very helpful with our trip planning as well and gave recommendations for local sights, activities, restaurants, etc... I would highly recommend this house for those planning trips to the Glacier area!

One of our BEST vacations EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for such an amazing stay!! Your home was so comfortable and well equipped. Anything we needed was there and it was so well organized. The views were spectacular and they were so mesmorizing it was hard to pull my husband away - but when we did we enjoyed the surrounding areas too! Kalispell, Whitefish and of course Glacier - everything was right there!! I was almost grateful for the one rainy day so we could stay in. We had such fun playing board games, the piano, guitar and just enjoy the changing views that happened outside the window - we will definately be back and make this one of our routine destinations!

Great family accomodations for a visit to the Glacier area of Montana!

  • 4 of 5

The setting and the structure of this lodge are amazing!! We drove for a long time to get there but were thrilled with what we found. The view is spectacular, too! The owners were very accomodating in making us feel welcome with milk, wine, cereal and other items to get us started. Our grandchildren(twin girls)loved the swing set, trampoline and the bounty of toys in the cabin. Our son-in-law plays guitar and was happy to have one to strum while sitting in the comfy rockers overlooking the mountains of Glacier. They all enjoyed the basketball court, too!

We had everything we needed to have a fun ,family time there.

The only thing that surprised us was how lived-in the cabin was. The owners have clothes packed in every closet and hanging around and the decorating-bedding-furnishings are very worn and outdated.

Other than that we would give this VRBO a very positive rating!

It is a spectacular log lodge!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the very positive review as well as the comment about the closets. We have since relocated all clothing in closets to the lower level which is not used by guests. We do look forward to replacing certain furniture pieces as business increases. This is the type of feedback that helps us improve our services to guests!
