Our cabins are ideally designed to accommodate two couples and their children or a family, providing the perfect setting for a peaceful retreat. We invite elopements, honeymoons, and other small events with pre-approval (unfortunately, bachelor or bachelorette parties are not permitted). The cabins span two stories with a daylight basement level and decks.  The lower level is accessible solely via exterior landscape steps, ensuring privacy between the levels. For families with young children, please consider this prior to booking. The upper floor features a fully equipped kitchen with all necessary amenities and more, while the lower level offers a kitchenette furnished with a microwave, toaster, mini-fridge, and Keurig coffee maker.

The cabins are fully equipped with high end furnishings for a comfortable stay. Guests can enjoy a relaxing hot tub or a visit to the indoor sauna to unwind after an active day of skiing, golfing or hiking. Each cabin has a private fire pit offering everyone the chance to share stories of the day and a s'more or two. There is a 24' tipi that is a shared amenity for all guests to utilize on a first come first serve basis.

Whether you're here to enjoy the beauty of the National Park, hike or ski the surrounding mountains, explore the shopping and restaurants of Whitefish, or simply to unwind and reconnect with nature, 2 Cranes Cabins can provide the perfect base for your adventures. Book your stay today and experience the ultimate in comfort and tranquility in one of the most stunning regions of Montana!

We offer an outdoor firepit along with firewood. As hosts, our passion for outdoor fires and s'mores is unmatched. However, our commitment to preventing forest fires necessitates our authority to limit the use of the fire pit based on weather conditions, local fire risk, and Flathead Valley Fire Restrictions.

Because you will be visiting and staying in a cabin in the woods, in Montana, please understand that it is quite possible that you will seasonally encounter deer, bears, wild turkeys, mountain lions, flying insects including mosquitos, wasps/yellow jackets, moths, spiders, etc. The cabins are equipped with insect screens, but on occasion when the screen doors are opened, or left open, one or two may get inside. We are happy to provide assistance if this were to happen. We will not honor refund requests as it relates to the above mentioned critters.

If you are visiting in the winter, please understand prior to booking, that you will need all-wheel, or 4 wheel drive to easily access the property. We provide snow removal services for the road, parking areas, walkways and steps , that said, from the end of October to April, you should plan on snowy, icy, and slippery conditions while accessing the cabins, in the parking areas, and between the two levels of the cabin. We will not honor refund requests as it relates to the above mentioned matters.

The cabins are not handicap accessible. If you, or any of your companions are needing handicap accessible accommodations, we will not be able to provide this. We will not honor refund requests as it relates to the accessibility mentioned above.

The cabins are located on a small hill overlooking a creek. There are sticks, rocks, trees, bugs, bees, etc. Though most children love their experience here, there is the risk of cuts, scrapes, bruises, etc. If you wish to bring young children here, it is your responsibility to supervise and attend to them with the above understanding. Though we do provide a highchair, and a pack and play, the cabins are not "child proofed" in any way. If you are requiring "child-proof" accommodations, please understand that our listings are not. We will not honor refund requests as it relates to child proofing mentioned above.

The host/owners of the 2 Crane Cabins reside in another home on the same property and can be available for guest interaction on an as needed or requested basis. We are happy to accommodate and interact as much as or as little as guests prefer.

The cabins are located on a private 13 acre forested property that offers privacy, abundant wildlife, and a creek. The property is located near the Meadowlake golf course, and neighboring properties are generally private homes on 5-20 acre parcels of forested land. You will very likely encounter more squirrels, deer, wild turkeys, than our human neighbors. We do have occasional black bears, and their babies wander through the property, so making certain to not leave food or garbage outside is a requirement. The bears are fun to observe as the wander through the property, you will just want to make sure to keep at a distance from them, as they are wild, and we are living in their habitat.

Our property provides some walking opportunities, both in the woods, and throughout the Meadowlake resort neighborhoods. Many people bicycle and walk on Tamarack Lane and on the back road all the way to Whitefish, however we don't recommend it due to the lack of a bicycle lane or decent shoulder. Generally, you must have a vehicle to get around the area and an SUV is ideal. If you are visiting in the winter months 4-wheel drive is strongly suggested if not a requirement.
