A quaint and cozy log cabin with a large bedroom with a queen bed and two twin beds and a large sitting area. Plus a separate livingroom with a TV with DirectTV satellite and a dvd player with a movie library, book library and family games. Free Wi-Fi is available. Also the small kitchen has a combination small refrigerator, two burner stove and sink and a microwave. The cabin has it's own full bathroom with a shower and toilet. It has great outside space with a deck on two sides that face the most marvelous view of the Bitterroot mountains to watch the sunset from. There is a outside grill and firepit to farther enjoy the Montana wilderness feeling. 'Bear Cave' is decorated with the original watercolor paintings and limited edition prints by the co-owner/artist, Tracy Rose Moyers, that are available for purchase. Cabin is located in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley which is considered in the 'banana belt' which means that the area has milder weather compared to the rest of Montana. The Bitterroot is also considered one of the best fly-fishing areas of the country.
Dale and Tracy moved out to Montana from Virginia, to follow their dream of running a vacation cabin rental business. Tracy is also a professional artist that specializes in watercolor and paints the Native Americans, wildlife and landscapes of Montana. Her studio is located in the main house on the same grounds as the cabins. The couple moved to Montana the summer of 2014 and after living in their motorhome for the summer and looking at numerous properties for sale, they found just what they were looking for with this property- a log house with three cabins. The property was owned by an older woman that ran it as a bed and breakfast (Heavenly View Hideaway Bed and Breakfast) but at 75 years of age she was ready to sell and retire. Being the ideal place that Tracy and Dale were looking for.
Tracy and Dale met and dated in high school back in Virginia but when Tracy went out to Denver Colorade for Art College, they went separate ways. They dated again after Tracy graduated and came back to Virginia but at that time were on different paths, so went separate ways again. They both married other people and moved on with their lives. But 30 years later, after both happened to be divorced, they ran into one another again and the third time was the charm- they got married. Both brought two sons each into the marriage and now all four sons are grown and out on their own. That was when Tracy and Dale got the opportunity to follow their dreams and move out to Montana and start the new business, Wilderness Spirit Cabins.
Tracy and Dale Moyers purchased this cabin in 2014
After visiting Montana for the first time back in 2000, Tracy fell in love with the state. Visited again several times through the years and introduced it to Dale. Both love the beauty and mountains and rivers and lakes of the area and looked at numerous properties in the western part of Montana before finding the perfect spot. Which was this place! Where there are numerous hiking trails, flyfishing on the Bitterroot River, Lake Como for swimming, boating, water skiing and jet skiing, and in the winter the ski resorts are within an hour drive. Great location for all those Montana activities.
The heavenly view is the highlight of this property. Also the rural atmosphere yet real close to the towns of Corvallis and Hamilton and the numerous activities that one can enjoy in the Bitterroot Valley.
Dale and Tracey hosted Jan & me and our two large dogs. Beautiful view of the Bitterroots from the front porch. The kitchen is a bit small but that did not stop us from cooking almost every meal. The mattress on the main queen bed was great! Slept wonderful. If a rustic cabin is in your sights, this one is it!
Loved this place!! It was absolutely perfect for my husband and I and our 3 small kids. We were more than comfortable. The views were amazing too. Hope to stay there again.
We LOVED this place & our Hosts Tracy & Dale!! Kind,caring,w great sense of humor.They wholeheartedly embraced our pets.
We stayed in 2 different cabins over a 3 month period thru spring,while looking for long term housing.The Bear Cave was the best size for just 2 of us.Both cabins were clean,warm,cozy w great supplies & views(P.S. Windows do open!).Peaceful property..trees are heavenly.Great central location w short distance to 3 larger cities.Handy for biking, hiking,fishing, riding,etc.Our house-hunting was grueling & this quiet respite was wonderful to recoup in.Tracy & Dale are blessedly intuitive & do their thing & let U have your space too,unless..U want to chat,in which case..they are warm,welcoming & fun!
Would recommend highly & go back in a heartbeat..
My wife and I spent 5 days and where totally at home .Our hosts were charming and Always willing to accomedate us for any of our needs. A 5 star experience,We will be back next year.
We really enjoyed our time in this cabin, it reminds one of an Alaskan cabin. It is rustic but comfortable, well suited to 2-4 people. The Moyers are very accommodating and friendly people who went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. They were quick to take care of our concerns, which were few. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to my friends and family. Great job Tracy and Dale!!
Bear Cave cabin was our 8th VRBO and our first disappointment. We anticipated rustic and know and love the beautiful Bitterroot Valley, but nothing in the pictures, information, or reviews prepared us for the stairs going from the living room up to kitchen and to the bedroom nor the uneven flooring – adjoining floor sections do not match in height and many nails protrude rather than being flush to the floor. This cabin is unsuitable for anyone with mobility or vision issues and would be hazardous for toddlers as well, and the owners should advise potential guests of that. The toilet is extremely low to the floor and nothing, including the sink and vanity, is attached to the wall and available to help you pull yourself to your feet. Yellowjackets have nested behind the emergency exit and swarm around outside of the cabin during the heat of the day. Only one window opens and the air conditioner is fickle. The boardwalk around the cabin is decaying and requires careful stepping. Summer weight blankets would have been preferable to the heavy quilts on the beds. The final straw was discovering the refrigerator had frozen all of our fruits and vegetables. We paid for three nights, but only stayed two, did not enjoy it, and would never go back.
Lake Como- a beautiful lake with a sandy beach and swimming. Boat access.
Hamilton Golf Club-Open mid-March thru October. 18 hole course with par 72.
Lost Trail Power Mountain Ski Resort- located 45 minutes from cabins. Downhill skiing, snow boarding, cross-country skiing.
Missoula located 1 hour drive from cabins. Has plenty of shops, restaurants, galleries, the Univesity of Montana and the airport.
Flathead Lake located 2 hours from cabin. A must see!
Glacier National Park located 3 hour drive from cabin. Take the 'Road to the Sun' drive- breathtaking scenes and wildlife viewing.
Town of Bigfork- located 2 and half hours from cabin. Adorable little town with a quaint downtown full of galleries and little shops and restaurants. Highly recommend checking out.
