Welcoming, peaceful, dog-friendly cabin - easy access to lake & skiing!

Sometimes you just need a break from the onslaught of work and stress - why not share one with your family near the gorgeous shores of Montana's Flathead Lake? This lovely cabin will put you far, far away from your worries, while still allowing you to enjoy modern comforts and nearby activities like skiing, swimming, and more! And you can even bring your beloved canine family member with you, too!

Less than two miles west of the town of Lakeside, you're just moments away from quaint businesses like Tamarack Brewing Company and Blacktail Family Goods. Despite your close proximity to town - and the nearby shores of the lake - your cabin feels nice and peaceful, surrounded by swaying pines that stretch far into the horizon.

Breathe in the mountain air as you admire the nature around you, before stepping inside from the deck to unwind. Floor-to-ceiling log-style woodwork, combined with rich leather furnishings and the warmth of the stone fireplace, create the atmosphere of a welcoming ski lodge. Take a seat on the couch or a nearby armchair and use the internet to upload photos of the incredible views. If wintertime weather is too chilly, snuggle up with your loved ones by the fireplace and take in satellite programming on the flatscreen TV.

When you're ready to turn fresh-bought ingredients into hearty meals, the kitchen will serve you well. Plenty of counter space, along with stainless steel appliances, make cooking fun! Treat the kids to some snacks at the breakfast bar seating for four, before taking a seat at the nearby dining table for six to savor the main course. There's even a woodstove nearby to keep you nice and toasty!

Leave cleanup to the dishwasher and head off to bed. Two bedrooms and a loft upstairs, sleep a total of six guests (two dogs are invited to come along for a small nightly fee). Couples can enjoy either of two bedrooms. Or head upstairs to catch a good night's sleep in master-style loft's bed - there's even a private upstairs balcony. Bed choices include two queens and a king, meanwhile, kids can have the sofabed. Freshen up with a shower in either of the two baths and get ready to head out!

The Flathead Lake area is fantastic no matter what time of year you choose to visit. Summertime guests can head east to the lake itself, where swimming, fishing, and just relaxing at the shore await. Wintertime guests, meanwhile, can venture 12 miles westward towards Blacktail Mountain Ski Area. Spend your mornings and afternoons skiing and snowboarding down incredible pristine slopes, before heading back home to warm up in the evenings. Other nearby attractions include Volunteer Park in Lakeside and Westshore State Park, six miles south of Lakeside (fee required).

Save your dates and secure an incredible vacation for yourself and your loved ones!

The cabin was even better in person and the location was absolutely beautiful!
Roberta R. Apr 2020
We enjoyed the space to relax, the private feel, the beautiful view, the cozy wood stove and the great family meals we were able to prepare in the well supplied kitchen. We would stay again!
Scott M. Mar 2020
Beautiful, private, tranquil. Lot’s of area to hike.
Had a fantastic time.
Rebekah B. Mar 2020
The cabin was beautiful. There was a ton of space and the kitchen had all the basic amenities for a home cooked meal. Could not rate it higher. Thanks blacktail!
Androcles H. Mar 2020
Easy to find and private. Close to Tamarack Brewery Restaurant and Lakeside supermarket. Tamarack is a very enjoyable restaurant with good beer and food.
Pascal M. Feb 2020
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour. Le chalet est très confortable dans un coin de forêt très calme. La ville de Lakeside est toute proche et on y trouve toutes les commodités.
L'équipe de Vacasa est réactive et attentionnée.

This cabin was fantastic. The check-in/check-out process was simple and easy. Cabin was clean, views were amazing and the king bed was extremely comfortable. I'll stay there again the next time we come back.
Melissa S. Dec 2019
We loved being tucked away in the trees in this beautiful cabin. It had everything we needed with nice amenities, updated kitchen and furniture. It was very cold the week we stayed but the house was always warm and cozy. We really had no reason to leave except to get food, and there's stores very close by! All around the perfect stay!
Bernard R. Nov 2019
Nice cabin hidden off the road and near a small stream. Great hiking. It would be a mistake to get to the cabin and then only head into town, around and back. We took a left out if the driveway and went all the way up to Blacktail Ski resort and had best views. Bring camera.
Joshua E. Nov 2019
Perfect little slice of heaven, close to town but very private. Was relaxing and just what we wanted. Loved our stay
Brittany K. Oct 2019
If you close your eyes and imagine the cabin of your dreams this would be it. The cabin itself is so spacious while still being cozy. And the location is so perfect. Everything you need is there just waiting for you to check in.
Gasper M. Oct 2019
Wonderful, cozy cabin that is very roomy and comfortable. Also, conveniently located and well equipped. Unfortunately, TV channels available on cable did not include certain major networks. Being from Houston, we had to miss the World Series games.
Cindy T. Oct 2019
What a great vacation spot! The cabin was quiet, cozy and clean. We did have a slight issue as we discovered that the box spring mattress under the king sized bed was broken somehow, but the property manager and Brian were able to replace them with new ones that same day (which resulted in a much better sleep for our second night). We will definitely be back!
Catherine B. Sep 2019
Nice cabin with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, large kitchen, dining area, livingroom, porches, large closets, and grill. Quiet and peaceful. Near grocery store, church, and beautiful lake.
ruth davis d. Sep 2019
very private though close to town. It was nice to listen to the creek but you couldn't go down by it because of the overgrowth.
Timothy M. Sep 2019
Really enjoyed our 2 nights here. A lovely well appointed cabin
William L. Aug 2019
Lovely location, comfortable beds and furniture, well equipped and conveniently located. Unfortunately, we found dirty cupboards with crumbs, heavy dust and dirt under the beds and furniture. Evidence of resident mice was present in several rooms and in our luggage. We caught one mouse in a glue trap that were located in several areas.
Brooke S. Jul 2019
Very relaxing and beautiful cabin tucked away. You can hear the stream running and there are stunning views all around (especially from the loft). Very close to the grocery and the Tamarack brewery, also a easy trip into Glacier NP! It was a perfect place for our group of 6!
William R. Jun 2019
Great place, comfortable cabin, right out of a picture book. Clean sheets, and bathrooms.
Fully stocked.
Great views with a beautiful sounds from the creek nearby. Would stay here again and again with our family.
Michael M. May 2019
Well equipped cozy log cabin, plenty of room for six people. Setting is beautiful with a glimpse of flathead from the second floor deck and loft. Sound of stoner creek is so peaceful while sitting on the porch.
Dale C. Sep 2018
We spent a great week here. This cabin has all the amenities including new appliances. And that’s topped off with a beautiful view.
Amanda C. Aug 2018
Great cabin! Comfortable beds, plenty of space and great amenities (washer/ dryer, dishwasher). Beautiful views of the mountains.
Carol M. Aug 2018
View great. Cabin cozy and well equipped!
Barbara L. Jul 2018
Cabin interior is as pictured, but feels more spacious than the photos show. Setting is gorgeous -- beautiful forrest/meadow with the sound of running creek nearby and the smell of trees. Feels remote, no occupied houses in view or earshot, but is still convenient to a grocery store and brewery/restaurant a few miles away. Lake entrance is definitely not walking distance, but reasonably convenient by car. Cabin was spotlessly clean and kitchen/bathroom were well-appointed with dishes, towels, etc.
Thomas J. Jul 2018
We loved the large porch, upstairs loft bedroom and balcony wide open space of the living area and the washer and dryer.
Jeanne W. Jun 2018
We loved that the cabin was set back from the road and that it was not really close to others. The cabin itself was perfect. Everything we needed was provided. Would come back again and again. The only thing that I would have wanted was to have the lawn mowed so that you could move freely about. The grass was quite long. We had my husband's service dog with us and walking him thru all the tall grass that was wet in the mornings was a little bit of a problem. Thank you for a wonderful stay with our family.
Claire R. May 2018
A little piece of paradise!
Katrina W. Apr 2018
Fantastic views, very comfortable and charming—perfect for our family ski weekend! Wonderful!
Erin M. Mar 2018
Quite, beautiful property. Lovely newer home nestled in the woods. Can't wait to come back!
Leslie B. Feb 2018
The property's location is superb. The house is very well set up from the supplies to all amenities. We will be back for the next ski season.
Rickie M. Jan 2018
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS CABIN! Blacktail Ski Area is only 12 miles further up the road on which the cabin is located. Very convenient as the purpose of our mother/daughter trip was skiing! The cabin feels very secluded with woods all around and a creek on the property. The wood burning fireplace was awesome to come back to after being on the mountain all day, and the cabin itself is so cozy it feels like you're walking into a warm hug. Beds are really comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook when we wanted to eat in. My daughter commented that it felt like we were in a cabin you see in the movies. Beautiful views and quiet. Although we didn't bring our dogs, we could have, and that is another plus for this cabin. The owners have outfitted this cabin with guests in mind with thoughtful additions of family games, movies, puzzles, and there was even extra firewood in the barn. Instructions for everything were in the online guest book which was helpful with using the fireplace flue. Highly recommend The Tamarack restaurant in town also. We will be back and wouldn't hesitate to book with Vacasa for our travels to other areas. Thank you!!!!

We just spent a full week at Blacktail Cabin and loved this property. It is peaceful, quiet, and the surrounding scenery is beautiful, with no other houses in sight. The stars in the sky at night are amazing and the only thing you hear is the sound of the creek flowing behind the cabin. We were close to Lakeside (6 minute drive), which is full of activities, has a grocery, and several really good restaurants. Flathead Lake, Kalispell, and Glacier National Park are short drives. We saw lots of wildlife on Blacktail Road every single day when we came back from our day trips.
This rental is top notch. The inside is authentic, rustic, and comfortable. The outside balcony, wrap-around porch, and property are absolutely amazing. If you are "on the fence" about renting, go for it. We were already discussing when we could return, before we left.
Wish I was sitting on that porch right now!
Rob C. Aug 2017
Loved our stay!
Jessica M. Aug 2017
very quiet get away and perfect for reconnecting with family/friends
Sarah C. Aug 2017
Beautiful cabin in a prime location. Loved being just far enough from Lakeside to enjoy the quiet but close enough to enjoy the Lake in minutes. Terrific appliances and comfortable stay. Loved being here and wish we could come again!
Carl O. Jul 2017
The upstairs loft is a great view spot, and deer were visible from there, as well as on the property near the road in the am and in te local fields on a short walk.
Karen D. Jul 2017
Wonderful views. Great accommodations! Fully stocked kitchen... just bring food!
Karen S. Jul 2017
Cute, quaint remodeled cabin in the midst of a wooded environment with a creek running below the property. I would recommend this cabin as a mountain (skiing) cabin only.
Kimberly C. Jul 2017
I'd had a previous bad experience in finding lodging online, so I was absolutely delighted to find the Blacktail Cabin in Lakeside. Nestled in the woods, the cabin is in a beautiful location. We watched deer from the front porch more than once. Due to its location, we were able to visit Glacier one day and spend our second day on Flathead Lake. We liked the cabin ambiance which we found clean and comfortable, and the loft was a huge hit among the children! Our entire party wanted to stay longer and hope to return in the future.
Melanie S. Jun 2017
Surrounded by nature, great location. Cabin is very clean, beds super comfortable. Fast internet ;) We loved it
Trevor M. May 2017
Great place and town
Jeff B. Mar 2017
We rented the Blacktail Cabin for three nights, while visiting our son and daughter in Lakeside. It was the perfect place to hang out and relax with family. The cabin is beautiful and is laid out very nicely. It appears to have been renovated and updated recently, and most all of the furnishings seemed to be brand new and clean. The kitchen had everything in it that we needed for the meals that we cooked there, and the living room area was very comfortable for reading, watching movies, or playing games. Beds were very comfortable, and had new memory foam mattresses, and the cabin could easily sleep three couples or a family of 5 or 6. The view of the mountains from the great room is amazing. Our only complaint would maybe be that the walls are a little thin, so you can hear everything going on throughout the cabin. But, we would highly recommend it, and would return again!

Great place, great location!
