The Canyon Ferry Lake Cabin is a guest cabin building that was built in the 1880’s in Helena, Montana. The wood cabin sits on Canyon Ferry Lake, which is just 17 miles from Helena, Montana. Inside the cabin building, there is historic decor, with modern conveniences to include two large showers, a washer and dryer, a gas range, and microwave.
This log cabin features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a private upstairs master suite. From the cabin, there are scenic lake and mountain views from the king size bed.
Inside the log house are two other comfortable bedrooms, both with queens size beds, and a shared bath between them. On the outdoor deck of the log house is a stone cookhouse with a Monarch wood range. This log cabin has been nicely restored and is furnished with antique decor and cozy accessories. The outdoor decks on this are well-furnished and have scenic views of the 26 mile Canyon Ferry Lake on the Missouri River. The Yacht Basin Marina and Restaurant are only a five-minute walk from the cabin, Kim’s Marina is 3 miles away, and you can rent boats there. This log house is centrally located within a short drive to Glacier National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and the Lewis and Clark Caverns. You can rent this beautiful log cabin for $333 per night.
A log house is not only a great place to vacation, but they also make wonderful homes too. As you can see, they also stand the test of time and stand up to the elements very well. Building with logs is also a great way to build a home that’s environmentally friendly. The use of wood in log cabin designs help to create cabins that are ecologically sound, energy efficient, and architecturally pleasing.
The wood used to build log cabins comes from well-managed forests making it an even more sustainable choice. The built cabins also offer lower energy consumption and better overall performance. Log cabins and homes also reduce the impact that buildings have on human health. Wood reduces greenhouse gasses and stores carbons. A forest that is healthy and sustainable is a good solution to help with climate change. An acre of healthy growing forest absorbs almost 3 tons of carbon dioxide and releases close to 2 tons of oxygen.
Restoring a log cabin like this one that has been standing since the late 1800s is another great way to save on building materials instead of using all brand new materials and resources. Some of the older log cabins are still in great shape if they’ve been maintained over the years and they will continue to remain in great condition if they are restored and then maintained some more. This log cabin is a perfect example of that. This is the sort of wood cabin that people dream about, with plenty of inspiring decor and log cabin ideas throughout. This log house combines rustic log cabin details with the perfect location, for a wood cabin experience that is unforgettable.
