BE SURE TO CLICK "Have a Question" (highlighted in green below) when booking the river cabin, so host can direct you to the door key. A log cabin overlooking the unspoiled Moyie River. Enjoy walking in the forest or sitting by the river to enjoy the beauty of North Idaho. Cabin is surrounded by the Selkirk and Cabinet Mountains and is private with no view of neighbors property. Situated in a 15.4 acre Certified Family Forest. If you hear the rumble of a train at night it's because the Union Pacific passes along the opposite edge of the property from the cabin. There is No Mobile Phone Service. A land phone line is available nearby on an outside wall of host’s cabin for 24/7 Emergency Use and personal use with a prepaid calling card. Lots of wildlife on and over the property.
The log cabin has electricity, a small refrigerator with freezer compartment, a wood stove , electric heat, a hot plate, a Keurig coffeemaker and toaster oven. It has a twin size bunk bed, sofa and a small loft that could be used as an additional small sleeping area. Outhouse is nearby. The cabin does not have water but a spigot at hosts cabin provides fresh well water; a short haul to the cabin. A small wagon is on site for moving larger water containers. A camp site sized area between the cabin and river overlook has a fire pit, covered shelter, featuring a USFS-style charcoal grill, benches and picnic table.
Size wise it is ideal for a couple. Room for a tent at fire pit area for additional guest.

Very nice, well-appointed cabin with electricity, fridge, toaster, 2 coffee makers, electric heater, vacuum and more. Everything is essentially in new condition. What is not yet listed by the host Paul is that there is also a covered BBQ area with picnic table and a stone fireplace, extra bench that has recently been constructed. The river runs fast (Memorial weekend) and deep, so I would not recommend this to a family with young children, but my partner and I give this two thumbs up for those who want to glam camp. ;-)
