About MarieFaith

Bear Creek Log Cabin owner, Marie Clore of Bozeman, Montana. My family has been in the hospitality business for over 12 years with two vacation rental properties one mile apart in Bear Canyon. I enjoy helping folks have a great vacation experience, so, if you need our advice on things to do in the area, fishing tips, etc...., just please ask! I enjoy the hospitality business very much and look forward to meeting new people and showing them around Southwestern Montana, including Yellowstone National Park & Montana State University.

MarieFaith purchased this cabin in 2004

Why MarieFaith chose Montana

Unique Location, Unique Log Cabin! Beautiful location in the Rocky Mountain Alpine forest with a year round creek (with trout!), and, plentiful wildlife; deer, elk, moose, black bear, wild turkeys, coyote,bunnies, many friendly critters, eagles! So refreshing to be in the middle of the wild, and, yet just a 10 minute drive to Historic Downtown Bozeman. Yellowstone Nat'l Park, Lewis 'n Clark Caverns, etc..to name just a few...this is a Rocky Moutain Vacation Paradise. Oh, five larger Blue Ribbon Trout streams and two major ski resorts from 20 minutes to one hour away! Location, location, location, and, a destination in its own right if you just want to get away, rest & relax!

What makes this cabin unique

Hot tub soaking under the stars in the forest right next to Bear Creek. Campfire and s'mores...large swinging grill, complimentary firewood out back in the wood shed for grilling steaks, and great interpersonal family time making lasting, unforgettable memories.

A great place for solitude to restore the soul!

And, it is just 1 10 minute drive to Historic Downtown

Bozeman.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Jim and Marie,Our stay at your cabin was fantastic and we are certain to return. We searched and searched for the perfect place and yours stood out as the only one that had everything we were looking for: authentic log cabin nestled in the woods with a crackling fire and a hot tub. Being located so close to Bozeman was a real bonus.The web site looked great but we were impressed when we arrived to see it was even better than the pictures posted on VRBO. We loved the way you decorated and noticed your attention to the smallest of details and especially appreciated the bear theme! Baths were well stocked with high quality soaps and shampoos and the softened water made for a luxurious shower. The bedroom had such nice sheets and a very comfortable mattress; the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and there was a bookshelf with current brochures of any activity one could want from Tours of Yellowstone to skiing at Bridger Bowl.A flock of wild turkeys strutted past our window every morning and white tail deer were abundant. Best of all, it was incredibly quiet and the perfect place to relax!I had hoped to post these comments on VRBO but they don’t make it easy to navigate their web site. Please feel free to use any of this on your comment page.Thank you for your incredible hospitality.KC Denham, CWESouthwest Region ManagerColeccion Internacional del Vino2033 Hillside DriveNapa, California 94559Cell 707-738-6247Fax 707-265-9466

Unfortunate Poor Experience July 1 - 6, 2016

  • 1 of 5

We cannot recommend Bear Cabin based on our very poor experience. The bottom line is that our vacation time was cut short and disrupted extensively due to rodent and bat problems at the cabin that made it difficult to sleep or relax. It looks like this property would be a nice place to stay if it were effectively maintained, but our experience was that it is not being maintained well and there are significant problems with rodents and bats in the place. The foundation is settling extensively (and/or just originally done poorly) as there is a significant slant/tilt to the cabin that is somewhat amusing at first encounter, but a problem given that it introduces a lot of gaps and openings in the woodwork such that the cabin isn't sealed against rodents, bats and pests.The simple facts are that on our second night (July 2, 2016) a bat began flying all over the cabin and buzzing us once the sun was down and it made it impossible to eat or go to sleep. Cell phone coverage is spotty (mostly non existent) at the location and we were unable to get a response from Jim (who we were told to contact by the owner) until the next day. I ended up trapping and killing the bat myself that night after a few hours of battle. Jim suggested the doors may have been left open by prior guests but this was not the case with us. We had already been careful, but were especially careful about doors and windows after bat #1. A few nights later (July 6) another bat began flying around the kitchen and cabin during dinner, buzzing our heads. I was unable to catch this one after several hours and we ultimately bailed out late at night and had to search out a hotel. The owner (Marie) again asked us to contact Jim which I attempted several times during all this. Jim did not respond until the next day to report that he had found a bat in our former bedroom and disposed of bat #2. Based on the noises in the roof/ceiling and walls, and the poorly sealed exterior of the cabin, it sounded to us like the bats were nesting in the roof/ceiling and coming into the cabin through gaps from all the settling.

We also encountered rodent issues with mice droppings in various places including the kitchen (even after vacuuming droppings only to find fresh droppings the next day). Jim reported catching a mouse in one of the traps set out when we asked him to investigate the rodent problem also. Jim did attempt to do some sealing but this didn't seem to help (nesting noises). Buyer Beware.

Bear Creek Cabin Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was just perfect for our stay and only about 3 miles from Bozeman. With rippling water sounds from little Bear creek nearby and tall pines trees right next to the cabin it was everything I had hoped Montana would be! The beds were very comfortable, kitchen well-stocked, and the hot tub wonderful to use after long drives. It was very private and we had deer and turkey visit the yard. Owner was very helpful also. We would return for sure!

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is loaded with character and charm, the owners are friendly and attentive.

We felt it is the perfect distance out of town as to feel secluded without feeling isolated. We were visited by deer, wild turkey and an extremely friendly kitty.

Will definitely recommend this place and hope to stay here again.

Perfect Montana Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Bear Creek Log Cabin. It felt like, "Insert Perfect Montana Cabin Here". My husband and I visited with our 4 yr old. It was perfect for us. We could BBQ, roast marshmallows, and visit the creek. We also swam in the hot tub about twice a day. It was so close to Bozeman we drove past it on the highway the first time because we thought it would take longer to get there. It was also a quick trip to Livingston. We were also able to get down to Yellowstone. It was a bit of a drive but we were able to do Old Faithful, the canyon, the sulphur caldrons, stop to take pictures of wildlife and swim in the boiling river.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here the last week of April 2014. It was a beautiful, peaceful setting. The cabin is wonderful with very comfortable beds and the hot tub under a starry night is amazing. We enjoyed exploring the many rivers in Montana, local towns and reading. Bozeman, just a few minutes away, has amazing restaurants and charming stores. We will be back!
