About Fred Goldsmith

Purchased the land in 2008.

We live in Maryland but have been vacationing there for years.

Spent a lot of time driving through the northwest

years ago. We restored the cabin from the ground up at the

other end of the ranch and started renting it out. Things worked

out well as far as renting it and vacationing there ourselfs and would drive by the spot the new

home sits on and was amazed at the beautiful views and instead of putting a bench there to sit on and look out ,thought we would

build something a little more comfortable there so we could enjoy it and others could as well. It made it easier, having a friend and caretaker

in the area who is also an excellent cabinet maker to help with it.

It also would be great for large groups or weddings or

commercial shoots having both places. We have had weddings at the cabin and people were always looking for other places

for guests.

I have travelled all over the country for years and

the northwest is my favorite. People scenery and mindset.

I have tried to make the rental experience like renting from your brother,

the nice one. and it has worked out well. It also helped having

a friend who is also the care taker and an excellent custom

cabinet maker and contractor living 1/4 mile up the road.

Definatlly The Last Best Place

Fred Goldsmith purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

The one thing that sets this apart is the view and deck. When I

was building the deck I may have gotten a little carried away.

An extra foot here, extra foot there. It ended up to be a

2800 sq. ft. full wrap around and the views are amazing.

Picture Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful stay at the house and it could not have been more perfect. We hosted a large BBQ and wedding ceremony the next day for 60 people on the balcony and it was everything we could have hoped for! Fred was gracious, friendly, accommodating and helpful. The house was amazing and had ample room for our guests to enjoy the HUGE, BEAUTIFUL balcony. The men had a great time taking turns fishing in the pond out back and we loved waking up to the sound of birds on the water. All our guests expressed an interest in coming back to Whitefish and renting the house for family vacations in the future. We will definitely be back! It was just perfect for our needs and fully stocked with all the kitchen dishes you could need.

Fantastique!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow.. What a spot. We were a fairly large group and this spot more than met all of our expectations. The space itself is simply fantastic. Large and accommodating, yet cozy. Close enough to either Whitefish or Kalispell for convenience, yet remote enough to afford privacy and leisure. Only let down was that we were there is the winter and not in the warmer months to enjoy the incredible wrap around deck and surreal natural setting.

A unanimous hit. Thanks Fred

Perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

We rented Fred's place after x-mas 2014 through New Year's 2015. What a wonderful place! The pictures don't do this place justice. Every detail is accounted for and no corners were cut during construction. This house and the scenery are beautiful. On top of everything else Fred is great. Fred responded to call/texts within minutes & even took the time to mail me clothing that we forgot after checkout.

Our family loved the open lay-out of the home and having the pool-table in the "Man-cave" basement was a bit hit for New Year's Day football games. Location of the home is great. Very easy drive into Whitefish for ski-town tourists events, good restaurants, and skiing. Also a very easy drive into Kalispell for groceries at Box-stores like Costco etc. If you're looking for a place in NW Montana my advise to you is stop searching & hit the "book it" button!

More beautiful than we imagined

  • 5 of 5

We rented Fred's home for a girlfriends' reunion - the 21st annual - and it proved to be just perfect. The scenery, the space, the attention to detail - cozy, comfortable, VERY well-equipped and so impeccably clean. As I mentioned, we've been going to different places and renting different homes 21 times now and no kitchen was as stocked as Fred's - even olive oil which had to be a first! Although there were just 4 of us ladies in this spacious home, it was the perfect space for cooking, dining, and enjoying long chats either inside on the soft leather sofas or outdoors at one of the many outdoor seating areas (heated outdoor patio,as well)! Convenient to both Amtrak and airport. Easy drive to Whitefish, Kalispell and the Kalispell Creamery which was a real treat for fresh milk, eggs, cheese and butter (on the honor system)! Only regret: we could stay only 3 nights. What a great house! And what a gracious, caring host! Thanks, Fred!

Big Sky, beautiful house & perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our travel group of 5 couples (ages 48-54) from Iowa fell in love with this wonderful home. Fred's home became "home base " for 5 days/4 nights & it was awesome ! House was larger than the pictures portrayed. Kitchen was very well stocked, plenty of seating for 10 adults....many memorable pics around the huge, beautiful dining table. The large deck was wonderful & more chairs/tables than we could use. We have vacationed with several VRBO properties & this property has been the best stocked/decorated home that we have ever rented. The location was more than perfect. We visited Glacier Park (30 minutes away) Hot Springs (1 1/2 hr south), Big Mountain (15 minutes away) zip lines/chair lifts & white water rafting (30 minutes away) ....2 couples even went north to Canada! (2 1/2 hrs). Every evening it was nice to come back "home" & share with everyone our newest experiences. Montana is unbelievably beautiful and Fred & the staff made our vacation unforgettable & always stayed in communication with us & answered our questions. Thank you! You will not regret booking this property.

Incredibly well-appointed home with huge gathering spaces

  • 5 of 5

Our group of seven was suitably impressed with this lovely home. We were spending a long weekend at Glacier and this was the perfect place to return to each night. We commented that the kitchen was equally or better appointed than any of our own! We loved having so many bathrooms which made getting ready for the day really easy. We also enjoyed the large dinner table (it could easily accommodate 10) to relax around and talk about the day's adventures. The wrap-around deck had wonderful views of the mountains no matter where you chose to sit. About 40 minutes from West Glacier and an hour and 45 minutes from East Glacier. We can't wait to return!

Big Mountain and Blacktail ski resort are seen from the deck. Walk out back, fish and catch pike with rods provided. 360 degree views of mountains from the 2800 sq. ft. full wraparound deck.

Short drive to Costco, Wallmart, In Kalispell. 10 min to grocery stores in Whitefish. Best caterer in the valley 10 min. away.
