5 BDRM COUNTRY HOME ON 8 ACRES, RIVERFRONT, CONVENIENT LOCATION

Whitefish House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms (Sleeps 10-13)

This large 5 bedroom country home is situated right on the Stillwater River in the Flathead Valley and is accessed through its own private gate. The property has over 2,000 feet of river frontage on 8 acres and is located at the very end of a private dirt road. The Stillwater River wraps around this piece and creates a very unique peninsula which offers a private and peaceful setting. The property has plenty of trees, meadows and fenced pasture for horses, along with the river winding through on 3 sides. The Stillwater River is a slow moving river, very peaceful and is an attraction to a lot of wildlife in the area.

The deck encompasses quite a view of the river! The river creates a special mood on the property, it has a calming effect on one's soul. It speaks of nature, the simple joys of life and a constant reminder of what is real in life. I will also be leaving a few horses out in the pastures to graze and I have to say, I never get tired of watching them. The horses, the river, the setting it all creates is just plain nice.

The double doors from the living area of the house lead right out on to the deck which offers comfortable seating arrangements. The kitchen offers all stainless steel appliances along with granite counter tops, a 5 burner gas stove and a built in deep fryer for the cooking enthusiasts. It also has a detached coffee bar with a commercial Bunn coffeemaker and an additional sink. The dining table can seat 10 comfortably with 2 additional chairs for 12. There are also 2 log stools for additional seating at the breakfast bar.

The 5 bedrooms offer Montana made rustic log beds and consist of:

1 King bedroom/main level with attached full bath

1 King bedroom/upstairs with attached full bath

1 King bedroom upstairs w/ full bath adjacent

1 Queen bedroom upstairs w/ full bath adjacent

1 Queen bedroom/downstairs with 3/4 bath adjacent

There is also a queen hide-a-bed in the TV room and a

single twin mattress that can be pulled out for use.

Pac-n-plays are available.

The TV room offers a 60” TV, DVD player, Dish satellite channels and Netflix. There is a large laundry room for your use with all supplies provided, ample room for parking and a large circular driveway for any trailers or motor homes that come through. This would make a very nice location for a family gathering. I also manage my brother's vacation home, vrbo # 352040, which is 2 minutes away and when you combine the two homes, it is a great place for a family gathering, sleeping a combination of 20+ people.

We are located about 20 minutes from Glacier International Airport and right between Kalispell and Whitefish, 12 miles in either direction. Big Mountain is just 10 minutes outside of Whitefish and offers many hiking/nature trails. Glacier National Park (west entrance) is approx. 34 miles from here.

We are quite conveniently located, right in the center of the Valley, here in the rural Whitefish area.

Major Attractions within a 45 minute drive:

There are many lakes to recreate at: Whitefish Lake, Tally Lake, and Flathead Lake - all within 30 minutes. Tally Lake (which is off the beaten track) is a beautiful pristine mountain lake which is rarely crowded. It has a family atmosphere with swimming, hiking, wildlife viewing, lake and stream fishing, established fire pits, restrooms, a grassy beach area and campsites.

Glacier National Park - West Entrance

Big Mountain - zip line tours, alpine slide, scenic gondola rides, nature hikes, bike trails, mountain village.

Whitewater River Rafting Trips

Majestic Valley Arena, a multi-event center, which offers rodeos, motor cross events, car shows, and a variety of equestrian events.

Farmers' Markets - locally grown foods, local crafts, music.

Rebecca Farm puts on an annual international equestrian event in July of each year.

Bar W Ranch offers guided horseback riding for the day with experienced wranglers.

Shopping: Costco, Ross, TJ Max, Bed Bath and Beyond and other major retailers and restaurants is about 12 minutes away.

There are plenty of hiking trails, mountain bike trails and scenic paths in and around the Valley. Ask for details.

I have a caterer named Suzanne who is available if any groups would like to have some meals cooked for them here at the house. She is local and is a very diversified wonderful cook! She is separate and independent from the vacation rental.

There is a lot to experience out here in Big Sky Country and we would like to introduce you to just a little piece of heaven.

Keywords: Waterfront, large country house, end of the road privacy but very conveniently located with 2,000+ feet of river frontage.

Sleeps up to 20-24 when combined with

VRBO # 352040, which is adjacent to this home.

Dan and Jen O'Neill - Owners and Managers. We have lived out in the country for over 20 years, we are in our fifties now. Danny is originally from Ireland and

myself, Seattle, WA. We both love the outdoor life. I enjoy horseback riding on the country trails and Danny is an avid fisherman. We have lived in the Flathead

Valley for 11 years now. We are offering this vacation rental with the hopes that you can and will make yourselves at home here while you experience the

beautiful Flathead Valley in Montana.

Jennie O'Neill purchased this house in 2004

We purchased this property for it was one of the most unique settings we found in the Flathead Valley being that the Stillwater River has such a special influence as it winds around the property. We are private but still very conveniently located; 10-15 minutes from town.

Enjoying the river, wildlife/bird viewing, the horses grazing and just the perfect amount of privacy down our little dirt road. There is no traffic here at the end of our road and no immediate

neighbors to disturb. But yet, town is only 10-15 minutes away.

Relaxing & Beautiful Vacation!

Relaxing & Beautiful Vacation!
  • 5 of 5
Six of us stayed at Jennie's beautiful home on the Stillwater River near Whitefish and Kalispell. It was wonderful. The house is very comfortable and well arranged to bring people together, yet everyone had their own bedroom. The kitchen was the best equipped of any home where we have stayed through VRBO, and we have stayed at many. We felt at home, and Jennie was a very welcoming host! We would highly recommend this home. It's only about an hour's drive to West Glacier. However, it's enough just to stay at home and relax at this beautiful home or walk the adjacent beautiful countryside! And there's a creamery with fresh milk and eggs within 1.5 miles! Wonderful! Thanks Jennie!

Family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We booked Jennie's house for a family vacation with our children and grandchildren. I can't say enough positive things about our stay in this beautiful home. Jennie truly has thought of everything you might possibly need while you are there. There were bikes for the kids to ride , canoes, fishing gear, games, and a well stocked home. When we got there she had left fresh eggs, milk and cream from the local creamery, as well as muffin mixes in the pantry. The location was great , close to Whitefish, Kalispel, and of course Glacier National Park. Hopefully we will be back someday, it was a very peaceful setting and we left knowing we have made some great memories with the family, thank you Jennie for your hospitality!

Five Families - 20 Glacier Explorers/EXCELLENT HOME BASE!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
As long-time VRBO renters, we have almost always been pleased with our rental properties. However, our experience with Jennie was five stars and beyond from our initial contact through every aspect of our Glacier Adventure. My sister-in-law and I were responsible for the planning and details of our 2014 Glacier Expedition. We began planning in August of 2013 with the Empire Builder. After an exhaustive search of VRBO, I stumbled upon the Stillwater Vacation Home and Stillwater Log Home, VRBO #352040. The two homes together seemed like the perfect fit for our five families with 20 members ranging in age from 7 to 72, and we were not disappointed!!! Jennie's hospitality has created a vacation haven for every family! The descriptions and photos in the VRBO listings for both homes accurately reflect the beauty and amenities of these private getaways. Though the two homes are a short stroll from one another, each feels very private with different driveways. We used the homes as a home base for daily trips into Glacier National Park (30 minutes) for numerous activities, but the homes are set up perfectly as a resort of their own with large yards for outdoor games including volleyball, soccer, biking, fishing, canoeing, etc. We only spent one day at the homes but wished we had planned more time there. Jennie has stocked the homes with literally everything that you will need for your stay. No Wal-Mart trips for toilet paper or laundry detergent required. She became our personal travel agent assisting us with every question and request from changing travel schedules, light shopping, tourist information, etc. Again, Jennie, we cannot thank you enough for sharing your little spot in Montana with us and helping us with everything. We hope to visit again in coming years!!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family stayed at this home for a full week. It was amazing! The owners have done an incredible job of making sure everything is there for you in plenty of quantity. It was never a question of "is" it here but more "where is it?" The kitchen is amazing (I love to cook and found everything I needed), the house is lovely and very comfortable, and we remarked that it was so nice to feel like we didn't have to work hard to get out because we were so happy! From the canoes with lifevests and bikes with helments to our every need being found somewhere (sharpies, tape, band-aids, toothbrush) this was an incredible place to stay. The owners are very kind and willing to help with any need. The photos don't do the property justice, the owners are set on keeping the place very homey and nice, and it is within 10 minutes of Whitefish and Kalispell (and a Costco and shopping area), 45 minutes to Glacier, and 25 minutes to Whitefish Mountain Resort. My kids are already asking to go back, and we most certainly will if our vacation plans allow us another opportunity to visit this gorgeous area. We had an amazing trip!!

A true Montana experience....a true 5 star experience! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My whole family loved this house but more importantly my husband loved this house!
I arranged this family vacation to celebrate my husband's birthday. I searched and searched for the right property because we all know where you stay can make or break the vacation and experience and it had to be a place my husband would enjoy. Stillwater vacation rental was perfect in every way. Jennie the owner goes above and beyond to ensure a great stay. She is definitely a detail person and she has thought of everything. I have never stayed anywhere where so much attention has gone into providing for guests' needs. Perfect!
We loved the location. You really are close to everything but feel you are remote and removed from it all. The Stillwater river, the horses, the beautiful valley that surrounds this little community, all the deer and the decor of the house helped make our visit a true Montana experience. Perfect!
But the proofs in the pudding as they say! After arriving home and my husband began to tell our friends and family about our wonderful Montana vacation and his birthday celebration each telling has started with "we rented this great house"! Perfect!
I love it when everything turns out perfect, just as you planned, just as you hoped it would, don't you? If you are looking for that perfect rental
I would encourage you to look no further because Jennie's house is , you guess it........PERFECT!
