About Nancy Moen

Carroll operates 2 restaurants and Nancy is retired from General Motors. We love travel and meeting new friends. We live full time in Montana, not far from our 2 vacation rental homes.

Nancy Moen purchased this house in 2003

Why Nancy Moen chose Helena Valley Southeast

We purchased this home, which is near our historic log cabin (VRBO #423121) and our little cabin, (VRBO #483720) to preserve and protect the property. We lived in this house for 8 years, and have now built a smaller home for ourselves on the property. We can't imagine living anywhere else.

What makes this house unique

This is a spacious, very comfortable custom home. Many unique, custom log details. Truly one of a kind. The views are spectacular from inside the home as well as from the decks. A wood-burning stove makes cool evenings a treat. All modern conveniences included. Wifi throughout house.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home that is so well decorated to be a home and not just a temporary lodging. Well equipped to sleep, cook, and serve the 10 people it indicates. Nancy and Carroll were accommodating to work with and supplied everything we needed to enjoy visiting with our friends. All were impressed with our choice and we will be recommending it to all.

Lovely property, friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

Yes, it's a great property. We decamped from East Coat Urban Life and stayed here for two weeks. We wanted to be close to Helena but have a beautiful surrounding, so this was perfect.

My most important criteria when I rent a house is to have the owners nearby. Nancy and Carroll live next door, so I was in seventh heaven. They were so helpful, always around, and always willing to give advice or help out.

We did not have the hot water problem that others mentioned. We had a few minor issues, but the hosts fixed them and even took our suggestions for better stocking the house. They answered all of our questions, let us borrow tools for a project and even took our mail and mailed it for us.

The loft bedroom does NOT have a door on it, so it is great for teens or quiet kids, but maybe not for adults. The only unresolved issue with the house is that there is not a good music system. We knew this going in and we brought our own Bose Bluetooth player, which is small and easy to pack. The wifi is strong so we may even bring "Alexa" next time.

For those who may be interested, we worked from this house for two weeks. We shipped out monitors, which the hosts gladly accepted and put in to the house for us. We set up our computers on two different tables and ran our offices from Montana - and no one was the wiser. :) This house and the hosts are perfectly suited for your mobile office. Also, our teens and young adults loved the place. The big kitchen made for wonderful huge breakfast-making and fantastic dinners for entertaining. (We invited guests to join us and the hosts were amenable to that, as long as we did not exceed the maximum capacity of the house.)

We intend to return next summer and we think we have found our home away from home.

Great family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our family of four adults and four grandchildren under five with us for an "end of summer" celebration. Fortunately, we were able to rent this wonderful 'home away from home" for four days over the Labor Day weekend.

Amazingly, the house provided us with more than enough space to sleep soundly, feed all 10 of us three meals a day plus snacks, shower, and relax. The house was spotlessly clean and the yard well maintained.

The kitchen was well equipped with a gas range, quiet dish washer, large refrigerator, and plenty of cupboard space. There was plenty of cooking and eating equipment. We fed the kids first and then sat down to dinner around the lovely dining table.

The furniture was comfortable in all of the sitting rooms including the main floor living room, the downstairs den, and the screened-in downstairs patio. The deck was plenty large and furnished so that we could barbecue, lounge, and eat on it. Because it was closed off, the children could run around it while we watched from inside without worrying about their getting lost or hurt.

The upstairs and downstairs rooms - plus the loft bedroom - had beautiful, large windows which allowed us to view the beauty of Canyon Ferry Lake. The views were a real treat!

We thoroughly enjoyed the Canyon Ferry beach just a five minute walk away. We were able to bring our beach "stuff" in one car that we could park above the beach and then carry that stuff down to the sand. The lake was shallow enough to allow our 2, 3, 4, and 5 year olds to play to their hearts content as well as allowing us to pull our rented pontoon boat right up to shore to load and unload.

Nancy and Carroll, the owners, were right next door although they did not intrude in our family time in any way. They responded quickly by phone, text, and email to all our questions and requests for help.

We will definitely return to this special vacation place next year. Thanks to Nancy and Carroll for their warm hospitality!
