Martin City House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Built during the Dam Days, by Bill and Hertha Moore, with Hungry Horse Dam concrete and old-growth Douglas fir from the Rex Brown sawmill, in Coram, the Moore House is solid as a rock. Warm and comfy in Winter and cool and airy in summer, you will relish your stay in the Moore House.

Nestled between Abbot Creek and the Middle Fork of the Flathead River, the Moore House looks south to Columbia Mountain and Badrock Canyon. Just 400' from U.S. Highway 2, access is easy in winter. West Glacier and Glacier National Park are just 9 miles away and Big Mountain Resort is only 20 miles away.

The grounds consist of 2 acres of formal gardens and lawns - ideal for hosting outdoor parties, barbecues and family reunions - and 3 1/2 acres of native forest. There is lots of wildlife and birds to enjoy, with deer, elk, moose and bear frequenting the property, so keep a sharp lookout when you are in the woods.

Canyon Foods, in nearby Hungry Horse, has an excellent butchery and groceries and more shopping is available in Columbia Falls, just 8 miles to the west.

There is lots to do outdoors with world-class recreational opportunities in Glacier National Park and the Flathead National Forest. For those who seek adventure, whitewater rafting on the Middle Fork, hunting and fishing in the Flathead National Forest, hiking and climbing in Glacier and skiing and snowboarding at Big Mountain beckon. For those who prefer to just relax, enjoy the tranquility of your own holiday resort and the amenities of the Moore House.

We just returned from our stay at the Moore House. I cannot write enough positive information about this beautiful property. The house, architecturally, is a testimony to craftsmanship. The rooms are spacious with plenty of light. The owners live in the house except during the times of leasing; then move to their caravan. This is helpful, as the owners are very kind and prepared to answer all questions. An additional bonus is that there is plenty of kitchenware, as well as an immaculate kept house. The acreage surrounding the house is a feast for the eyes. The garden is lush; with flowers as well as herbs. The owners allow access to the fresh herbs for cooking. The location is perfect for going to Glacier Park as well as Flathead Lake, maybe 10 minutes away at the many day trips are possible. Since the location is near the woods, we even saw deer while relaxing on the patio. For my city bred grandchild, this was quite a treat!! I would highly recommend this place for a holiday. In terms of my recommendations: we fit almost all of the below boxes. My daughter is mildly spastic; climbing the stairs to the basement/loft; was ok, we put her one of the main bedrooms,[plenty of beds in this house!!!] I have mild arthritis, and had no problems with climbing the stairs, my teenage nephews liked the privacy that the house and yard well afford, the 7 year old loved playing hide& go-seek on the property & that he cd have a snowball fight in the park, in July. Even though there is plenty of media access in the house, we chose not to turn on in forms of electronic entertainment. Go! Enjoy! Relax!!

Perfectly Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful! Everything was beyond spotless and no detail was left untouched! Plenty of room for 8 adults and then some!. It was not luxurious, but extremely comfortable and felt like we were at grandma's house all week! The location was ideal...close to Glacier Park, the airport, town, but yet far enough out to feel like we were away from it all! The owners were on site (housed on the property) and available whenever needed, but not intrusive at all! What a great place to recharge! We LOVED it and would still be there if we could!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank Patrick and Carol again for the incredible opportunity we had to spend time with the entire family in their vacation home facility. "We" included Larry and I, 1 married son, his wife and 2 children, our married daughter and 2 children (hubby couldn't come, our 2 single sons, and our single daughter and her boy friend. I believe that makes 13 of us. We had such a good time grilling our dinners and eating in the patio area, relaxing around the fire during the evening, and just vegging as a family. Since we had a rainy day that cancelled the hike we planned, we played cards, grandkids watched a movie, read books, and just relaxed. It was so perfect. We had no problem finding pans big enough to cook and serve our food and loved being able to launder what we needed to. The best thing about this home is how homey it is as well as how it feels isolated from the world, even though it is close to the Park as well as a grocery store and anything else one might need. And right along with that is the affordable rental rate. Thank you so much from all of us! Larry and Helen, Brandon and Marcy and Ian and Annika, Brett, Courtney, Marylou and Ethan and Jonas, Rosalyn and Mike. We truly hope we will be back.

Memories Of and For A Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

What a WONDERFUL experience!! We rented The Moore House and 7 of us (1 son, 2 grandsons (13 & 16) and 2 very close friends came 'home' with us for a special occasion and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. We found the accommodations to be 'over-the-top'; spotless and well furnished, and Carol was close by to answer any of our requests or needs. The location is prime; minutes to Glacier Park's west entrance, Hungry Horse Dam, golfing, river and lake fishing, wildlife, shopping, Whitefish Ski/Summer Resort, go-carts and water-slide park, beautiful Flathead Lake and all from the backdrop of beautiful wooded mountains, set on a beautifully landscaped property offering privacy and tranquillity. We each had our own private area and found the dining/living rooms large enough to accommodate indoor eating and visiting and the large, covered patio and carport invited ourdoor barbeques and late evening ice-cream treats. And if you're quiet, you just may experience the early morning frolicking of the area's deer on the lawn. I hope I can share that it was my parents who built this home and it was here that I grew up from age 5 until I married at age 20. My husband and I were absolutely amazed at how well maintained Patrick and Carol have kept the home, with SO many of the original features and fixtures still 'just as Mom and Dad built them'. Any additions or upgrades have offered wonderful enhancements; the spa and sauna, the dormers off the upstairs rooms, offering a place to enjoy solitude and rest, and putting a 3/4 bath where my walk-in closet was -- why didn't Dad think of that??!! If you're looking for a wonderful, relaxing 'home away for home' while on vacation, look no further. Book your stay at The Moore House; you'll want to return again and again.

Week at Moore House

  • 5 of 5

Dear Carol and Patrick:

Since we returned from our "awesome" week's vacation at your lovely Moore

House last week, we wanted to tell you -- but equally important -- we want

to tell prospective renters just how special your property is and how much

all nine of us enjoyed our stay. Several things stood out for us:

1. How available and attentive to our needs you were throughout our week's


2. How close the property is (10 minutes away) to the entrance of Glacier

National Park, grocery shopping and restaurants.

3. How immaculate and well-equipped the house is with an abundance of

dishes, pots and pans, paper and storage supplies and linens.

4. How roomy the house is, accommodating three generations (two

grandparents, two daughters, a son-in-law and four teenage grandchildren),

with all of us having plenty of privacy.

5. How charming the patio and garden immediately outside the house is,

allowing all nine of us to gather together without any sense of crowding.

We also enjoyed how far away the property is from other properties, allowing

us to feel alone and "remote." We appreciated, too, the lovely gas grill and

equipment, even though we didn't have time to use it.

6. How reasonable your rental charge is, compared to others we had


In short, we greatly appreciated our stay with you, and should we be

lucky enough to return to Glacier National Park, we certainly will contact

you. Do have a happy remainder to the summer and a lovely fall and winter
