After living 45 years of my life in Montana. I decided to move to North Dakota where I met my wife, a realtor, and continued residential construction. Summer vacations every year are trips back to my old stomping grounds to fly fish and hike with my sons who live in Missoula. As a youth I spent every weekend and summer fly fishing with my grandparents, hiking up every drainage to every mountain lake I could find on a topo map. These recent years our trips included the St. Joe and Clearwater drainage in Idaho. we would drive by the area where our new cabin is and cut south on Trout Creek or Cedar Creek roads to the Blue Ribbon trout streams. Some trips would just be day hikes into the beautiful Alpine Lakes on the Mountana divide. Then last fall we stumbled upon this cabin built in 1996 on the Clark Fork River and knew this was where we wanted to come on our weeks off. In the past our families have enjoyed renting beautiful rentals as ours...With only limited time off each year we've decided to share our beautiful log cabin with you and share my knowledge of amazing adventures in the area.
James Nelson purchased this cabin in 2011
Where to begin...A beautiful log cabin on the low bank of the Clark Fork River. It borders state land and is a couple hundred feet from the last take out of the Alberton Gorge, famous for its whitewater rafting. The freshly oxygenated water downstream from the cabin makes the fly fishing spectacular. you can sit on the deck or porch swing and watch the eagles and osprey hunt or watch the fish rise to the daily hatches. Being only 45 minutes from the Hiawatha Bike Trail, Quinn Hot Springs and Cascade Falls has its appeal too. For me it's a jumping off point for hiking too. The many numerous mountain lakes within an hour and the two roads I take to my favorite Idaho fishing river. Montana's largest and newest state park is 15 minutes away will open in 2014 and so is the largest pine tree in Montana. Golfing at Trestle Creek Golf Course is also only minutes away. Inside the cabin is a Forest Service look-out map on the wall marked with adventure spots for all ages. Be it a Alpine Lake you can drive too or one to hike too, a Forest Service Look-out, Hot Springs, mountain bike trails or the famous rafting waters out your door. We're here to share our past adventures with you!!
We've tried to set-up our log cabin with all the amenities you could want. Perfect for 2-3 couples or a family with kids that want their space this is the perfect set-up. The main cabin has a large master suite upstairs along with a tub/shower bathroom and amazing river views. On the main level you have a wonderful kitchen with all the amenities, dining room, laundry room, 1/2 bath and a living room area all with views of the Clark Fork River. Outside there's a covered porch with a swing and fire pit area for entertaining. The studio apartment sits above the garage for the kis or second couple and includes a 3/4 bath, fridge and amazing river views also. All in all you can sleep up to 6 comfortably here.
Beautiful cabin, beautiful location, clean and nice. Everything was perfect.
The property is perfectly located on the river! The pictures do not do it justice. Perfect way to "get off the grid" for a while. Pangea rafting is literally a 2 minute walk from the cabin. The weather was perfect for us so just relax in the water and enjoy the outdoors. Short drive from Quinn's hot springs (and its probably the most picturesque drive I've ever been on). The cabin is stocked with anything you might need for cooking and preparing food. The morning view from the master bedroom is incredible. Can't say enough great things about this place and the privacy you have. Would definitely love to return someday!
My family stayed here for two nights and we loved it. The cabin is easy to drive to and situated right on the river. The kitchen has everything you need and the outdoor grill was an added bonus. We saw several bald eagles during our stay, and a moose crossed the river directly in front of us! I would love to stay here again in the future.
The home was in perfect order and well maintained. Loved the furniture and the comfort of the home. Sitting out on the porch is number one!! Loved it ALL!
Cabin is low bank river front next to the takeout of the famous Alberton Gorge known for its whitewater rafting. From the Cabin downstream is excellent fly fishing...Other close attractions are the Hiawatha Bike Trail, Quinn Hot Springs, Cascade Falls Lookout Pass Ski Resort, Trestle Creek Golf Course and numerous Alpine lakes and Streams with easy access...
