About James Nelson
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
Why James Nelson chose Mineral County
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!!

Wonderful cabin on the river!
My husband and I spent our honeymoon here and it could t have been more perfect! We are already planning another trip back! If I could rate it as more than 5 starts I would!
Clean and cozy
Jim and Holly,
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. We had such a wonderful and peaceful stay.
Loved it! Loved the quiet! And the hummingbirds and the beaver and the bald eagle snatching a fish .
Didn't want to leave!
Perfect weekend getaway!
Clean, cute cabin. Older boys loved having their own "bunkhouse". Perfect serenity....
A+ guests! Thank you!
Could not have been nicer!
The cabin is immaculately clean and the size was perfect where I was concerned it might be too small for our graduation BBQ w/12 people but it was spot on! The 6 people who spent the night were all nice and comfortable even on the pull out couch. Would definitely book again!
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...
