About George & Carolyn Anderson, 4737 Old Hwy. 2 N, Troy, MT 59935

We are retirees from the state of Virginia. George worked 20+ years as an Entomologist with the Virginia Dept. of Agriculture. I worked 30+ years as a Registered Nurse. Both of us retired early so we could move to Montana and enjoy its beauty and activities as much as possible. We also wanted to live in a log home. We contracted with a local Amish community to build the beautiful, custom home we now use as a vacation rental. We enjoyed living in that log home so much we are presently building and living in another one.

George & Carolyn Anderson, 4737 Old Hwy. 2 N, Troy, MT 59935 purchased this cabin in 1998

Why George & Carolyn Anderson, 4737 Old Hwy. 2 N, Troy, MT 59935 chose Troy

Both of us have always enjoyed the outdoors, camping, hiking, and all other activities associated with the outdoors. We visited Montana numerous times on vacation, deciding early on this was where we wanted to live when we retired. This area is an outdoor enthusiast dream and we have never looked back or regretted our decision to move here. It is, in our opinion, one of the most beautiful, recreational, and people friendly spots in the country. If you are lucky enough to be able to visit us here, we think you will agree.

What makes this cabin unique

A beautiful, custom made log home on 8+ acres of property with a blue ribbon trout stream situated within the scenic Rocky Mountains. Enjoy the view of the meadow from the upper deck or the lower patio. A clean, quiet and peaceful place to

relax and enjoy with your family and friends, is our priorty.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Where I have always wanted to be

  • 5 of 5

During my stay of a week at your beautiful cabin; I found George and Carolyn most welcoming, warm, sweet, caring, helpful and very nice to talk with. I have always loved Montana and was very happy I was able to have the privilege to not only stay for a week, but it was an honor and a blessing to meet such wonderful folks George and Carolyn, I loved their cabin. Very clean, has everything you need, and ready for when you arrive. They will be there to give to a warm greeting you when you arrive which is very nice. They also will walk you through the cabin so you will know where everything is that you may need. I really enjoyed the wildlife, the quiet, and even though Troy shown signs of very little signs of smoke from the wildfires; it did not stop me from the time I was able to spend at the cabin and in Troy. I could go on; but it is a must see and experience you have to be there along with meeting George and Carolyn. My dog loved it there the time she was able to spend there. Thank you so very much George and Carolyn for all you kindness, support, and the concern for me during this time. I am hoping to be back again and look so forward to seeing you both. You both gave me the chance to be where I have always wanted to be and in a log cabin, loved it. I left you some brochures on the Oregon Coast so if you ever decide to come this way again. Thank you and God bless you both.....Susan.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cabin not far from Troy and Libby. The owners have included everything to make you comfortable. Queen bed downstairs was great! I would have given five stars but for two small issues. There is no wifi nor were there any basic condiments. Hoping that will change by next year and it can be a five star!

We loved every minute of our stay and this place was amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from 8/12 to 8/18 and are from Austin Texas and the weather was just what we needed to escape the 100 degree hit. The owner George and Carolyn were great and the nicest people we have ever met. Their house was immaculate with a beautiful view. They had all the amenities with plenty of room. Every morning and evening we watched deer and 2 families of turkeys from the back porch. My wife and I had a wonderful time and I was actually able to relax more so than any other trip that I have ever taken. We had no agenda and this was the place for that. We walked and hung out in rivers and lakes and the falls were amazing. We have never seen scenery like this and when we were hanging out at the rivers and the lakes, we never saw anyone which was very nice because we were out of the rat race. Out of the all the vacations my wife and I have taken in the last 13 years and we go someone every year, this was the best place we have ever been and the nicest place we have stayed. I would recommend this place and if available next year, we will be back. Thank you George and Carolyn.

Very beautiful home.... I would not consider renting it again as long as John Anderson is the owner.

  • 3 of 5

The owner of this property was there when I arrived. I had my service Dog with me (this property was listed as Dog friendly). The owner seemed agitated with the idea of me having my service Dog there. He also insisted that I had to pay him the "pet deposit". This was a clear violation of my ADA rights. I went ahead and gave him the "pet deposit" as he insisted. I informed him that he cannot charge a pet fee for a service dog, and said he would look into it. My 2nd night at this rental the owner showed up unannounced. I am still not clear as to why. He startled me as well as my service dog. He showed up again 3 days unannounced. I thought this to be inappropriate. Upon my checking out, I showed him the web site to the ADA Laws regarding service dog. He was rude and walked away.

Owner's Response: As owners of Montana Lake Creek Vacation Rental, Carolyn and I work very hard to ensure our guests stay is very enjoyable, peaceful, and well worth the cost of renting the cabin. By the numerous positive comments in our guest book and on our web site, we believe we are meeting that goal and will always strive to do so. We can only ask that those who read our reviews keep an open mind before they judge. In reference to Ms. Daniel's "Service Dog", this was a large, 2 yr. old German Shepherd which appeared untrained and totally disobedient to any commands from Ms. Daniel. It was hyper active and went thru the screen door within 5 min. of their arrival (which Ms. Daniel quickly gave me $20 for). The door required complete replacement of the screen and 2 hrs. labor to repair. No documentation was shown that it was a certified "service dog" and I would have been very perplexed as to what service it provided. Ms. Daniel arrived with her "ski jet" boat in tow, informing me later that she had had it on Bull Lake and the treacherous Kootenai River. After their departure, dog food pellets were scattered throughout the first floor and numerous, large droppings of dog poop were scattered over the front yard which Ms. Daniel informed me she would be cleaning up. In reference to my visits, the first one was around 10:30 am (not at night as Ms. Daniel indicated). It was to do a walk thru inspection after Ms. Daniels first night stay to ensure the dog had done no additional damage. We were very concerned because of its age, behavior, and past damage done so quickly. The dog did jump at me in attack mode when Ms. Daniel opened the door to let me in. My visit lasted approx. 5 min. I inspected the first floor only and left when no apparent damage was obvious. In reference to my second visit approx. 3 days later. This was to mow the lawn which we sometimes have to do while guests are present. I arrived around 11:00 am and met Ms. Daniel on the front porch. When I told her why I was there, she informed me she would prefer if I mowed later. I courteously agreed to do so and left. When my wife and I arrived at 11:00 am on check out day, Ms. Daniel had not yet checked out and required another hr. to do so. She was not charged a late checkout charge, the full cost of the screen door damage, damaged night light, and a ripped, "high- end" expensive lounge chair which was unrepairable and had to be trashed.

The State Record rainbow trout was caught less than 40 miles away! There is a frisbee golf course, the site of an annual frisbee tournament, located in Troy.

Glacier National Park is approximately 2 1/2 hours hours away, an easy day trip for this beautiful must see attraction.
