I was so excited when I found these cabins in my search for an authentic Montana escape. I had high hopes for what the experience would be and I was not disappointed. Linda and Charley have a beautiful property and great location and my cabin was exactly what I hoped it would be!
I stayed in the Bear's Den cabin. What I love (well, one of the many things) is the location of the cabin. Each cabin is separated from the others by trees. So there's a measure of privacy and a sense of having your own space. There's a fire pit in the yard with wood provided. I had a brand new gas grill on the porch which worked like a charm. Plates, utensils, cooking tools, glasses, can opener, napkins, dishwashing liquid, etc. are provided. I needed a pot to cook some things in and Linda and Charley gladly provided one. They are very accommodating! Another thing I loved was that the inside of the cabin was really clean and nicely appointed. The furniture is of rustic design, made of chunky wood to match the log cabin feel. The bed was very comfortable, not too firm or soft. There's baseboard electric heaters, if needed. The bathroom was perfect in size and function. The water pressure was very good. Everything in the cabin was perfect for me. There was a really nice porch swing for enjoying the quiet evenings and a couple of picnic tables to sit at in the yard. There's lots of literature to look over in the cabin that gives an idea of what to do and see in the area. Linda and Charley were also good resources on the area.
I was pretty lucky the few days I stayed there because it was early in the season and the other cabins weren't occupied during that time. So I got to have breakfast (which was very well prepared) with Linda and Charley a couple times and get to know them. Such great people and very happy to share their experiences and advice on what to do and see in the wilds of Montana.
The town of Bigfork is very close by and Glacier National Park is about 45 minutes away. Very convenient for my excursions in that area. I can't recommend these cabins enough! They are spectacular!! I'll definitely visit them again when I get back to Montana.
