Relax and take a deep breath of fresh mountain air, while you watch and listen as the land comes alive each morning with abundant waterfowl, deer, beaver, otter, moose and more. Grab a pole and fish for brook trout from the stream that runs throughout the 100+ acre property, and then enjoy a picnic lunch beside the waterfalls. Lots of lakes, hiking trails to explore, and a quiet river to kayak on one of those beautiful lazy afternoons. The towns of Whitefish and Eureka are within 25 miles. Combine your stay with a trip to Glacier National Park (about an hour away by car), or bring your passport and visit our friendly neighbors in Canada. The Olney area is known for its unspoiled beauty. Feel free to bring your boat there are many lakes for skiing and wakeboarding. Miles of trails can be accessed from your cabin door for four-wheeling adventures or snow mobiling the Olney trails with or without a guide.

Even with the wildfires that unfortunately burned around the area the views were wonderful. We went so my husband could fly fish but unfortunately he fished but didn't catch not anyone's fault just bad luck. Tried to see Glacier National Park but the road we wanted to take was closed due to the fires but all in all would do it again.

The cabin is wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

The only problem is that the pictures shown on homeaway.com show a bunk bed and it was not there. One of the reasons why we rented the cabin was because of the extra beds shown. This was a disappointment.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect little cabin with plenty of quiet. Looking for a home base to explore the area and visit Glacier NP, the cabin was so nice to come back to relax at the end of the day. There is a short hike to the waterfall on the property. The cabin was extremely clean, cozy and inviting and Mary provided everything for a very comfortable visit. Her 2 dogs were so sweet and I looked forward to their visits. I can't say enough about how much i enjoyed staying here.

Stayed at Mary's Cabin for my birthday, when we arrived from our long drive it was so wonderful to pull up to this darling cabin in this beautiful setting. When we stepped in side the Cabin. it was so warm and inviting (just perfect). The next morning we were greeted by Snickers and Dyson, Mary's two wonderful dog's. What a treat those two are, loved them. Mary's property is breathtaking with a fabulous waterfall and trout stream. If you want a private setting away from it all this place is for you.

Relaxing & comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Mary's cabin with our 2 teens recently and were very pleased with everything. The cabin is small but very well-stocked and even in a little kitchen, Mary has managed to provide almost every kitchen gadget you can think of. The beds are comfortable, towels and sheets high quality. Everything was very clean and cozy. The cabin is only a half hour from shopping in Whitefish, and our son did lots of fishing on Mary's property and nearby. We also kayaked on a beautiful nearby river. We utilized the outdoor grill and fire pit as well, and were provided lots of firewood to use. Mary is very generous and kind, even allowing me the use of her washer and dryer. We would definitely stay here again!
