Sightseeing and activities are easy from the cabin.
From the moment you turn onto the private road leading to The Cabin, through the grass scattered with Ponderosa Pines and the forest of Lodgepole and Tamaracks, you will feel the peace and tranquility you are about to experience during your stay. The Cabin is situated just a little up from the shore of Lake Blaine in a natural setting of trees. It is one 'Great Room' and newly remodeled. There is a sitting area with a couch, chairs, a DVD player for watching movies and a radio/CD player; a bedroom area with queen size bed, four pillows, wall-mounted reading lamps and bedside tables; a fully equipped kitchen with table and chairs, and, of course, a private bathroom complete with towels, shampoo and shower gels; and, a deck with table and chairs and lounge chairs for your relaxation. Sun bathe on the dock or lakeshore.
Swim, snorkel, or walk the trails through the woods on this 13 acre property where deer, fox, wild turkeys, eagles and owls are often seen. You may want to just 'kick-back' at The Cabin or use it as a base for your Montana vacation. Glacier Park is only a 30 minute drive from The Cabin; 20 Minutes to the quaint town of Bigfork; about 40 minutes to Whitefish Mountain Resort; and Kalispell, a mere 15 minutes away; and, only a 5 minute drive from The Cabin is a a service station with a restaurant, bar and deli for coffee, great sandwiches and ice cream; and, a 9-hole golf course with a restaurant. The Cabin is closed up for the winter, but available for your vacation rental from the middle of May thru the middle of September.
We moved to Montana because my artist husband fell in love with the landscape during a business trip here in the early 1970's. We were from the Chicago area where we had established the Village Art School in Skokie. We decided to vacation in Montana the following summer. We loved Montana and it was at that time that we purchased our 12 acre property and then a couple of years later were able to add the cabin and another half acre. We already had a home on the property but wanted this cabin for my husband's art/painting studio. You may have heard of him, as he did become a very well-known, award-winning artist.
Joe passed away in 2005. During the summer of 2012, I remodeled the studio and now offer it to travelers as a vacation rental.
Sue Abbrescia purchased this cabin in 1976
We walked down the path through the 12 wooded acres, sun shining, a warm, beautiful day, and came to the lake. That was it! We had to have this piece of heaven! We were lucky. It had not been on the market, it was shown to us by the owner, a friend of a friend of ours. I love Montana, will never leave, and if you have never been here I'm certain that you will love it, too.
Walking down a wooded trail, and then the lake comes into view, with mountains to the north and east…does it get any better! We had found our ' paradise'. That was in 1976, 38 years ago. As happens over time, an area grows. But, we still have our piece of paradise, a getaway where we can enjoy the serenity of our lake-front property, walk the trails or kick-back with a good book on the deck or lakeshore. And, the sunsets are soooo beautiful!
I stayed at this cabin on the lake for a month and it was exactly what I needed! The wild life was plentiful and the beauty of the surroundings were so wonderful and breathtaking everyday! I would recommend this place to anyone and it makes for a perfect Getaway! The owner Sue, was so wonderful and took such good care of me, which was so unforgettable and she makes sure your visit is as perfect as it can be! Thank you Sue!
Sue's amazing cabin on the lake was the perfect "home base" for our Glacier National Park vacation. The cabin location was perfect and was an easy 25 min drive to the entrance of the park. The location made it possible to head into the park each day for a full day of exploring/sightseeing and still get back in time to make dinner while watching the sun set over the lake. Wow! The cabin itself was terrific and far exceeded our expectations. The direct lake access which included a paddleboat and floaties was a wonderful bonus! The cabin also had other little things that made our trip much easier such as a small cooler which we packed lunches in everyday. There were also lots of books etc on the park so we could plan our next days adventure each night. Sue was very sweet and had delicious cookies and huckleberries for us to enjoy. She was also available for any questions we had throughout our stay. I would recommend 100% and will definitely stay again! Thanks Sue!!

This cabin was perfect for us. We wanted to be near enough to Glacier National Park, but not be stuck staying in a touristy area. This cabin gave us the best of both worlds. We would spend a day hiking in the park and the next day recuperating at the lakeside cabin and repeated this throughout our stay. The view at the lake is spectacular, and having the use of her paddle boat was an added bonus on those days we stayed "home". Sue had no issues to our inviting old college friends to come over for a cookout- reunion. We stayed for 12 days glorious day and wouldn't think twice about returning. Sue is a warm and welcoming hostess! She checked in periodically with gifts of homemade cookies, jams, and fresh picked berries, and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. We fell in love with her husband's artwork in the cabin and contacted her son's gallery in order to purchase a piece as a remembrance of our trip. When we return to the area, we will book this place again.
The cabin was clean, comfortable, with a great view of the lake, and perfectly situated close to both Glacier National Park's west entrance and Kalispell. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils, condiments, and cookware.
The owner is very nice. She even brought over freshly picked huckleberries for us to try! Thank you Sue for a very pleasant stay in Montana!
This was our first trip to this area. We couldn't have been more pleased with the Cabin. It is perfect for 1 or 2 people, great location and Sue, the hostess, was super sweet and very accommodating. I would highly recommend to friends and to anyone looking for a great place to spend time.
The cabin is nice enough. The owner is a little overbearing, pretty sure she checked on us every day while we were out doing our thing - even entered the premises on one day, while we were gone.... I think she is new to the Rental business and very skeptical of people in general.
The lake is small & in the right setting probably quite appealing to many. I like to fish & enjoy private time while on vacation - therefore with this lake being a warm water lake, catering to the ski boating and tubing with a home on every available lakefront lot was not really what I was looking for. I gave it an average rating as nothing was really wrong, just not my cup of tea. I wish the owner well with her future rentals.
