GLACIER VISTA RIVER COTTAGE

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 does rarely allow guests to bring dogs to the cottage, and I have a dog in my family. We 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Best of the best for sure, We visit this area at least once a year and hope this will be our getaway for that visit from now on. Thank you for going out of your way to make sure the cottage was accessible for my family. Hope to see you soon.

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.

Piece of Heaven by Glacier Park

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful piece of heaven we found at Glacier Vista River Cottage. It works so well for two couples, allowing privacy and yet great gathering room. Wonderful to sit on the porches, watch the deer play in the yard, or go down to the river to enjoy the gazebo and fire pit. Glacier Park being so close is an added bonus, such a beautiful area. We had a wonderful experience with the property manager, very easy to work with and the house is so well kept, well supplied. We will definitely go back.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
The Glacier Vista River Cottage was a wonderful respite from the road. We had been traveling awhile, staying in hotels and this was exactly what we needed. The cottage was inviting and the property manager Camille was very easy to work with. She responded quickly to our questions and was very accommodating when we asked to modify the dates of our stay. (We had checked the online calendar before asking) She also was very responsive when we had some difficulty with the internet. The cottage was private, clean and comfortable. It was an easy drive to Glacier and also had a grocery store nearby. We would highly recommend this rental to others who plan on visiting Glacier.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for three nights, and really enjoyed the location. The cabin was perfect for two couples, two queen beds and two bathrooms. If the weather would have been nicer we would have spent time out by the river, it was beautiful there. Nice central location for going to Whitefish or Kalispel. Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay for others.

Very Relaxing and Fun

  • 5 of 5
We have always used motels before but this was like home away from home.
We were treated like family and given the run of the place. Our grandkids had a blast and we built a fire and they filled up on marshmellows, graham crackers and hershey bars.This was such a perfect place for our family vacation to the Kalispell area. We were close to everything yet we were secluded in the woods. The gazebo by the river was a treat.. The cottage was clean, modern, roomy, and had everything we needed. We will recommend to our friends, and we hope to go back there on our next trip to the Kalispell area.

Recommended for: Anyone including 55+, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, People with Disabilities, Romantic Getaway, you name it. We will be baaaack.
