GREAT WAY TO BRING IN THE NEW YEAR

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 5, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
This was the second time that we brought in the new year here. Like our first visit we arrived to nice inviting and clean house. Each year we have gone with a group of 25+ people and everyone has had somewhere comfortable to sleep. It is close enough to whitefish that many people made skiing day trips. For those that opted to stay at the house for the day there was no shortage of things to do. From hiking around the house, reading books by the fire place to watching movies in the theater room (not hard to do if you follow the instructions that Arlan gave upon arrival.) When we got home we realized we had forgot something that was pricey to replace. With a couple emails sent Arlan found it and had it in the mail to return it to us. The customer service was great and he did what he could to make our stay enjoyable. There is a good chance we will be returning and I would happily recommend the property to large groups looking a nice relaxing vacation.

Amazing Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 2, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
My husband and I got married over the Christmas holiday. We had 16 people staying in the house and there was so much room still available! The kitchen and living area are beautiful and were a great gathering place for everyone! The theater was a fun place to watch movies, football, and tv. All of the kitchen appliances were very nice so we had big family breakfasts and dinners and ate out for lunch. The scenery is absolutely beautiful, far enough away from town to enjoy the beauty, but close enough for all the amenities Bigfork, Kalispell, and Whitefish offer. Arlan, the owner, was very welcoming and willing to help in anyway we needed him. Thanks so much. We had an amazing time!

THANKSGIVING WEEKEND SPOILER........

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
This was our second Thanksgiving weekend there in a row, and needless to say it was not a good returning experience. Things sure do go down hill fast in a years time. There were several major things that did not work, and things that are not advertised correctly. #1 - there is NO tv and or cable connected to the entertainment room. Only Netflix. #2 - the forced air heat was manually shut off at the unit so that we were forced to try and heat 5000 + sq. ft. with wood only. Thankfully with several men exploring the cold premises, we flipped the switch and we had heat. The gas fireplace also was not working. #3 - the cleaning services that you are charged for to stay at this dumpy location is definitely not even close to being worth what you pay. A 10 year old could have done a better job. I personally cannot give this location a positive feedback of any kind and want to warn those that are thinking of going to this location to reconsider your destination. Also while we were there the power went out for 6+ hours and we could not reach the owner to ask him if there was a glimmer of hope that he had a back up generator system...... The kitchen could be stocked better with serving utensils, the oven bakes slow, there was no toilet paper, the bath towels are stained, the Jacuzzi tub in the master bath was filthy, not to mention the outdoor hot tub. There was also an infestation of ants. The location and size is decent but all the problems and dirt far outweigh that.
Owner's Response: Unfortunately in this business we run across guests like this and when you have up to 34 staying at a time, there is bound to be one in the group, from time to timer that is willing to slander our reputation because they couldn't figure out how to operate things. I will address these accusations one at a time to clarify things...

1) No TV in the Theater.
The theater is a full 1080p state of the art projection system and is not a TV.
The bulb has a short life and is very expensive to replace, it is for movies and turn off. We have a wireless system that is connected to wi-fi and has netflix, hulu plus, pandora, vudo, and other movie channels free of charge as well as all hook ups for I Pads and such. It is unfortunate that some guests are not up to speed with technology and fail to ask how to operate things.

2) Heat-
When I returned to the property, the gas valve had been turned off at the fireplace so they turned the pilot off instead or just adjusting the thermostat to turn the heat down also all the batteries had been removed from the thermostat for the furnace.

3)Power outage
Unfortunately we had a power outage because of the snow storm and not much we can do about that....everyone was out of power and not many people have generated power for a 5,000 sq ft home....we just are patient like everyone else, these things happen. I happened to be on the road and out of cell phone range but once i got the message I told them we do have a generator and it's location. I spoke with my land tenant and he said the power was out for about an hour and a half.

4) Cleaning-
One of the problems we have is that when a large group has a lot of kids is that when everyone shows up everyone is running all over in the excitement and the kids make a mess before the parents have a chance to walk through the whole house, just how it goes. As for the Tubs......well never has this been an issue with any other guest. And ants don't live in below zero temps.????

We hope that all the positive reviews clear this issue up.

Great house + accommodating owner = great vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 28, 2013

My extended family (about 20 in total) spent a week at the cougar trail ranch. The house and grounds are amazing. Plenty of room for young and old to sit back and relax. Arlan was a great host and always available to answer questions. I've rented other homes on homeaway and list my own vacation property here, so I feel qualified to give Cougar Trail the highest possible recommendation. Thanks again Arlan.

Perfect, Perfect, Perfect ! ! !

We can't begin to say how happy we were to have stayed at this beautiful property, and how perfect it was for our son's wedding and family reunion! While the pictures show how nice everything is, the house, property, and area are all much more magnificent in real life - when we arrived, our mouths dropped open in awe. Plenty of bedrooms, plenty of space, everything clean and well-maintained - the owner has it all right there (the kids especially loved the in-home theater!). And the property was the ideal setting for our son and daughter-in-law's wedding (they used the separate cottage as their honeymoon suite) - plus we had room to spare for some of their friends to stay. Since we had never been to Montana, this home was in the ideal location for us to do a lot, with Bigfork and Flathead Lake so close and Glacier National Park within easy driving distance. Arlan was quite helpful and made our stay all the more enjoyable (thanks again, Arlan!). We highly recommend this property and look forward to our return (maybe to visit some new grandchildren!).
