Wonderful rustic cabin

Really cool cabin located right off the North Fork rd just north of Polebridge MT. The road near the cabin is extremely busy and dusty during the day but at night hardly anyone comes by. Summer months are very busy.

Location

Wurtz Cabin is located in Montana

Directions

From Columbia Falls, travel north on Nucleus Avenue and turn east onto Railroad Street at the stop sign. The road becomes North Fork Road as it travels over the railroad overpass. Drive past the Schnaus and Ford rental cabins, and Wurtz is located on the west side of the road. Use caution during the winter, as the gravel road is only intermittently plowed. Chains and four-wheel drive are required for passage.

Natural Features

The cabin was originally built by Frank and Ella Wurtz, who first settled the land in 1913 and expanded their home as their family grew in number. The family lived on-site through the 1960s and volunteers helped the Forest Service restore the building to its current structure.

The rear of the cabin is lined with a stand of dense conifers. The front of the cabin faces a grassy lawn that overlooks a line of pine trees with the snow-capped Livingston Range in Glacier National Park visible in the distance.
