This 1900s homesteaders cabin was bought at auction for $150 over 40 years ago. Built initially in the high highlands of Montana, up the North Fork. The hand-chiseled stones used to build the fireplace in the cabin were meticulously catalogued and removed so that it could be put back together again in its original configuration. The cottage was filled with mules. Having been carefully put back together, it currently occupies 11 wooded acres perched atop Whitefish Mountain and looks out over Whitefish Lake.
The cabin sleeps four people nicely and is pleasant. The living room sofa can be expanded to into a cozy queen-size bed. Single bunk beds are in the tiny bedroom.
Whitefish Mountain Resort, famous for its ski slopes and mountain biking routes, is just a 10-minute drive from the cabin. You may visit Glacier National Park, known as the “Crown of the Continent,” after a quick 49-minute drive.
