About James Nelson

After living 45 years of my life in Montana. I decided to move to North Dakota where I met my wife, a realtor, and continued residential construction. Summer vacations every year are trips back to my old stomping grounds to fly fish and hike with my sons who live in Missoula. As a youth I spent every weekend and summer fly fishing with my grandparents, hiking up every drainage to every mountain lake I could find on a topo map. These recent years our trips included the St. Joe and Clearwater drainage in Idaho. we would drive by the area where our new cabin is and cut south on Trout Creek or Cedar Creek roads to the Blue Ribbon trout streams. Some trips would just be day hikes into the beautiful Alpine Lakes on the Mountana divide. Then last fall we stumbled upon this cabin built in 1996 on the Clark Fork River and knew this was where we wanted to come on our weeks off. In the past our families have enjoyed renting beautiful rentals as ours...With only limited time off each year we've decided to share our beautiful log cabin with you and share my knowledge of amazing adventures in the area.

James Nelson purchased this cabin in 2011

Why James Nelson chose Superior

Where to begin...A beautiful log cabin on the low bank of the Clark Fork River. It borders state land and is a couple hundred feet from the last take out of the Alberton Gorge, famous for its whitewater rafting. The freshly oxygenated water downstream from the cabin makes the fly fishing spectacular. you can sit on the deck or porch swing and watch the eagles and osprey hunt or watch the fish rise to the daily hatches. Being only 45 minutes from the Hiawatha Bike Trail, Quinn Hot Springs and Cascade Falls has its appeal too. For me it's a jumping off point for hiking too. The many numerous mountain lakes within an hour and the two roads I take to my favorite Idaho fishing river. Montana's largest and newest state park is 15 minutes away will open in 2014 and so is the largest pine tree in Montana. Golfing at Trestle Creek Golf Course is also only minutes away. Inside the cabin is a Forest Service look-out map on the wall marked with adventure spots for all ages. Be it a Alpine Lake you can drive too or one to hike too, a Forest Service Look-out, Hot Springs, mountain bike trails or the famous rafting waters out your door. We're here to share our past adventures with you!!

What makes this cabin unique

We've tried to set-up our log cabin with all the amenities you could want. Perfect for 2-3 couples or a family with kids that want their space this is the perfect set-up.

Outside there's a covered porch with a swing and fire pit area for entertaining. The studio apartment sits above the garage for the kis or second couple and includes a 3/4 bath, fridge and amazing river views also. All in all you can sleep up to 6 comfortably here.

It really is a peice of heaven!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing stay at this sweet little cabin! It was clean, well laid out, and had perfect decor for a relaxing getaway. It was perfectly stocked with everything you need to make a home away from home. The river was only steps out the door, and the trees and meadow surrounding the cabin are picturesque. We sat on the back porch and read books, played cards, and enjoyed watching nature. We went hiking and fishing every day. What a wonderful retreat!!!

Could not have been nicer!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is immaculately clean and the size was perfect where I was concerned it might be too small for our graduation BBQ w/12 people but it was spot on! The 6 people who spent the night were all nice and comfortable even on the pull out couch. Would definitely book again!
