Overview

Columbia Falls Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 br, 2 ba, sleeps 7 or more (air mattress for 3 addt'l guests)

Glacier Vista River Cottage is a beautiful, serene cottage that was completely remodeled and updated in 2008 yet retains a sensible country charm and privacy. GVRC is situated on 5 acres bordering the Flathead River, and the property allows access to an island accessed only through a bridge shared with one neighbor. Abundant wildlife frequents the property, which boasts 250 feet of river frontage and views into Glacier National Park. There is easy access for fishing, canoeing, or rafting while a 12x24 gazebo provides a perfect setting for picnics, sight-seeing, fishing, and much more. You can easily lose yourself on the island and it's rarely frequented game trails. Here you get a chance to experience some of Montana's land and beauty as its best.

The cottage is conveniently located in the Flathead Valley just minutes from shopping, great dining, and outdoor recreation. It is 3 minutes drive to the charming town of Columbia Falls, 10 minutes from Whitefish/Big Mountain ski resort or the city of Kalispell, 15 minutes from Glacier National Park, and 30 minutes from Bigfork/Flathead Lake. The cottage has easy and quick access to the Glacier International Airport.

The fully furnished cottage has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, front and side porches and all the necessities for a comfortable stay. A wood stove keeps the cottage warm and cozy in even the coldest winter nights, but during the summer the riverside and creekside firepits might be a better place to warm your bones!

Amenities: Master Bedroom: New queen memory foam Log Bed, walk-in closet, and direct backyard and river access.

- Second Bedroom: New queen pillow top bed and mirrored closet.

There is an available queen air mattress, as well as a separate twin air mattress, both with built in air pumps, in case an extra 1-3 guests are joining. On top of that, the couch is super comfortable...it's hard not to fall asleep there!

Other features include:

- Wood Stove, electric heat

- 42 inch TV & extensive movie collection, stereo.

- High speed wireless Internet (free, of course!), cable

- Washer, Dryer, Dishwasher.

- Barbeque/BBQ Grill, Wood Burning Grill over Bonfire pit.

- Full kitchen.

- Paved road right to house.

- Optional weekly,or daily cleaning service(extra charge).

- Private bridge and trails on property.

- split firewood, coffee/tea, condiments, dish & clothes soap.

- wheelchair accessible

I have set this cabin up as a calm and peaceful vacation retreat, with all the comforts to ensure a happy and comfortable escape from the hustle of normal life. But since my family and I can't be there all the time, I am pleased to share it with you. I hope you can enjoy it as much as I do!

GVRC allows guests with Service dogs. I have a dog myself and make every effort to minimize any impact of pets on the home, but please be aware of this if allergies are a concern for you or your family.

Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We were only there for a few days but everything was perfect! Shout out to the property manager for giving us ideas of where to go and get shots of the lunar eclipse. The location was perfect as well!!! If we ever come back that way, we know where we will stay!

The cottage was even better than the pictures.

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our time there very much!!! We spent time at the river just enjoying our wine and the relaxing atmosphere. The cottage was very well equipped. The video library is HUGE. We wanted to stay longer but had already made arrangements to go someplace else. It does take about 25 minutes to get to Glacier from the cottage. If we are ever in that area again, we will definitely try to stay there again.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
This property is absolutely beautiful. I rented this house for my dad and brother and I and could not have been happier. The property was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Camille and David were extremely friendly and always available. The best part of this property is the river. We sat by the campfire every night along the bank of the Flathead River and caught fish until dark. This was a perfect location for our trips to Glacier National Park through the West Entrance. 20 minutes and we were in the park. I look forward to returning again the first chance I get.

Wonderful Cottage on the River

  • 5 of 5
Heartily agree with all the other great reviews. I spent 4 nights at this lovely cottage with my wife and 2 young kids. The location is great, close enough to access Columbia Falls, Whitefish and the airport with ease but far enough away to be peaceful and restful. Cottage comes nicely equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The main living area is open plan and felt quite spacious for the 4 of us. My wife and I enjoyed taking the kids out to the gazebo in the morning to enjoy our coffee, the morning bird song and the views. Camille was very helpful in quick to respond. We look forward to returning soon.
