Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Dixon - Missoula Montana Log Cabin
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)
The Cozy Conifer Cabin is a special place surrounded by a forest of mature Dougas Fir, Ponderosa Pine and Western Larch. This Missoula Montana Log Cabin rentals vacation home was built from pine trees from the small meadow where the home now sits. It is only 10 minutes off convenient I-90 but privately located on 10 acres of conifers. It’s so close to Missoula (25 miles) that you can take advantage of shopping and dining but return to the woods. Deer and birds call the property home and sometimes elk or the occasional black bear will wander through. There are hiking trails on the property that lead to a trail on the bordering Montana State Forest which leads up to the Lolo National Forest. There are 5 seasonal creeks and wildflowers galore April to July.
Upstairs the Missoula Montana log cabin rentals vacation home has 3 rooms; two bedrooms and a den between them with a large library. One of the bedrooms has a door and stairs leading to the outside. Downstairs is the kitchen with windows looking into the woods and a nice living room with two large picture windows facing the forest. Also there is a large bathroom with claw foot tub and separate shower. The back of the house has utility room(washer and dryer), and mudroom(with desk) off the back entrance. Off the living room, there is a large deck to enjoy the smell of the outdoors, wildlife, sounds of birds, seasonal creeks and wind blowing though the trees.

About Erich Degner
I run a mail order business in Sherwood Oregon but always wanted to start a Missoula Montana log cabin rentals business where travelers can stay in a SPECTACULAR natural setting to unwind and enjoy nature. It's rare to find nice forest on acreage near Missoula since the Missoula Valley is semi-arid.
Erich Degner purchased this cabin in 1999
Why Erich Degner chose Dixon
We moved treecycle from Missoula to a cabin in the woods in 1999 for clean air and to escape the city. We always wanted a Missoula Montana area log cabin and this place was perfect. We moved to Oregon in 2008 to be closer to suppliers but we visit. But since we don't live there any more it has become a perfect location to start a Missoula Montana log cabin rentals business. It's real close to Missoula but like another world in the conifer forest. It's such a special place it will be passed on to my son Forrest and hopefully his children.
What makes this cabin unique
Wildlife, hiking, wildflowers and sounds of 5 seasonal creeks April to July. This Missoula Montana area log cabin vacation rentals home is a place in the woods to enjoy solitude but is really close to Missoula for shopping and dining. The property, logged 100+ years ago has transformed from an overgrown forest to park like after a decade of thinning dead trees to stimulate growth of the larger trees and is now prime wildlife habitat.
