About Nancy Moen
Carroll operates 2 restaurants, and Nancy is retired from General Motors. We love living in Montana, not far from the cabin, which is a second home.
Nancy Moen purchased this Cabin in 1980
Why Nancy Moen chose Lewis and Clark County
We bought this home as a private get-away, and for family and friends, and are now opening it up to new friends through VRBO. Carroll is a native Montanan, and Nancy is a native by choice.
What makes this Cabin unique
We never tire of the lake views, and watching all the activity, including all types of boating. Wildlife in the area adds to the Montana experience. The large river rock wood-burning fireplace is a real treat on cool evenings.

Really Cool Rustic Cabin
One of the coolest cabins I have ever stayed in. Owner has done a great job with restoration.
Huge fireplace, beautiful view of Canyon Ferry Lake, comfy beds and cozy atmosphere. Will stay here again!
The property was nice
We only stayed one night, we did a lot of driving and we got to far away to come back
Such a special home. We loved the view of the lake and the location.
Such a unique experience to be able to stay in such a historical home. We enjoyed the peacefulness of the place and loved being able to walk down to the access to the beach.
Our family of five spent a wonderful week at this comfy, well appointed cabin while accompanying our daughter back to Carroll College. The cabin was extremely comfortable and set the tone for a relaxing peaceful rest away from our busy lifestyle. The view of the gorgeous lake from the cabin was magnificent! The deck area of the cabin is a wonderful outdoor living space and our teens enjoyed competition at the dart board every evening. Nothing was better than the graceful deer on the front lawn and deck of the cabin and they soon became our friends.
The owners were very helpful with our requests for advice on where to fish and what to see.
We spent two days boating and exploring the public beaches on jet skis. Nighttime was quite and and tranquil and even the lightening show was memorable. The entire place was perfect.
Favorite Montana cabin
We stayed at five homes during our Montana vacation and this one was the best. It ticked all our boxes, clean and comfortable, charm galore and fantastic location with beautiful views. We enjoyed playing darts in the evening and our nightly visits from the deer. They came right to the edge of the deck and settled in to watch us play darts. Sitting around the fireplace in the evenings was a treat. Plenty of firewood and lots of other amenities . My husband fished all over Montana but the best was just a across the street and down the easy to navigate wooded steps. And lastly, good communication and trust is very important when you are renting a vacation home and Nancy and Carroll get an A+! We usually don't return to the same place twice but in this case we just might have to do it!
