RIVERFRONT FARMHOUSE ON 30 ACRES BORDERING THE STILLWATER RIVER

Whitefish Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Recent cancellation - we have the last 2 weeks of August open, hurry and book, these weeks won't last!

This 30 acre, private property sits in a combination of a wooded and meadow setting with the Stillwater River 100 yards from the back door. It was set up for the active, outdoor, lifestyle dream. The house itself is over 3800 square feet with a recently added game room of 800 square feet with pool table, fooz ball and a flat screen tv for movies. The house is an all tile main floor with wood stove as well as radiant heating in the floor. The upper floor is all carpeted and all the bedrooms are on the upper floor.

If floating, fishing and swimming are your preference you can stroll down to the river from the house to the Stillwater River on the back of the property. There is a great 2 - 3 hour (depending on water levels) float to an easy take out spot down the road. There are no rapids on this portion of the Stillwater River, it moves at a nice floating pace, ideal for children and fishing. Stop for a picnic on one of the many sandbars or try your luck on the mud sliding bank (you won't miss this, it is a popular feature).

For motorcyclists there is access to State lands and Forest Service roads for miles of riding right off the property.

If mountain biking is more your speed, you can head over the highway and ride onto the Lupfer Loop section of the Whitefish Trail system. There are also three rock climbing areas near by.

Spend the day at Glacier Park and the evening at the Whitefish Farmers Market (tuesday nights on central avenue) and then home to relax in the quiet surroundings of the property.

The property sits 13 miles North of downtown Whitefish. The Stillwater Lake and Bar are 3 miles further North from the property for fishing and jet skiing.

Keywords: Serene, private, horses, horse, riverfront, motorcycles, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, near state land access, pet friendly, great for families with children or a romantic getaway, Glacier National Park, Whitefish, Whitefish Mountain Resort, Whitefish Lake, Tally Lake, Stillwater Lake.

** August 2013 - We have an AT&T cell service booster at the house which we can add your phone number too if you have a smart phone (flip phones do not work with the booster) and are an AT&T customer. This will provide full service in the house. Unfortunately if you use Verizon they recently lost a tower agreement and do not have service anymore at our property. This is very recent and I would call your provider before visiting if cell service is imperative to your visit. We do have a laptop for use at the house but do not have a land line.

** SUMMER BOOKINGS - JULY AND AUGUST **

We have a 7 night minimum stay required, 5 nights will be considered based on current reserved dates

**HOLIDAY BOOKING**

We ask that you book either for Xmas or New Years or both but there is a 7 day minimum over each holiday so both holidays would require a 14 night stay.

The owner, David, is originally from Georgia. His southern hospitality shows when he meets you at the property, handing over keys and giving a brief tour of the house and grounds. He moved to Montana after living in several ski locations in the Rockies and settled in Whitefish for many reasons. The sense of community downtown is strong, the skiing is great, the lift lines are short and the powder is deep. Whitefish was originally a logging and railroad community and maintains much of its original character and still has a small town feel with a year round population of less than 7000 people. The community has a great mix of hard working locals, snow birds, seasonal owners and original Montanans. Property prices are unique in that many of the folks that serve up great drinks, your food and teach skiing can afford to buy a home in town, unlike most other resorts. An engineer by day and tree skiing junkie by heart, David can be found working as a ski ambassador at Whitefish Mountain Resort during the winter. If you want advice on the best tree skiing, he is happy to share his favorite runs with you. His long time partner Bonnie, a native Californian, manages the calender and email correspondence. They look forward to meeting you, are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the property and welcoming you to Montana.

Bonnie Hannigan & David Crow purchased this farmhouse in 2000

This property had the space, the privacy and proximity to both town, the river, biking and rock climbing that appealed to David. He developed it originally as his main residence before turning it into a retreat.

The Stillwater River floats across the back of the property but is only 200 yards from the house. It is great for floating, the meadows and wooded area are the perfect setting to relax after a day of playing outdoors. The house has an open plan with high ceilings that give a great sense of space and is very comfortable.

WHAT A FABULOUS PLACE FOR A FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This property was excellent for our family get-a-way. Bonnie and David were great!! The adults (6 of us) and the 3 children all loved it. The house is in great condition - very clean and well stocked. There was plenty of room. The children especially had fun with the little rooms and secret passage ways. The bed in the covered wagon was an instant hit for the 5 yr. old! The yard area was perfect for yard games and running around like children like to do. The closeness of the river was also great - floating, swimming and fishing were big hits!! We would certainly consider this property again. Close enough to Whitefish for groceries and anything else that you might need. Dickey Lake is about 20 minutes away and it was a beautiful place for our 4th of July picnic and water fun. Not a bad drive to Glacier National Park!

WEEKEND AWAY MARCH 2014

  • 5 of 5
Had a large group of friends come together the second weekend in March at this Cabin and everyone was blown away with how great this place was. There was more than enough room for the 11 guys. Beautiful house with everything we needed to entertain. We never really even needed to go into town. There is a great mix of history with great modern features like updated bathrooms, tv's and a games room......that we never left. The renters were fantastic and treated us great......very quick communication and really friendly. We've already started to plan a large family vacation with a few couples and can't wait to come back in the summer. I can't recommend this place enough!

PRESIDENT'S WEEKEND SKI VACATION

President's Weekend Ski Vacation
  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for our large family. It has high ceilings, open spaces, plenty of room to wander. The game room with pool and foosball kept the teenagers busy. The two smaller rooms with the twin beds have a maze of small passages, the walls lined with chalkboards. Great for the younger kids. The large open living area made it easy for many different conversations to take place at once. The wood stove was an added bonus. Having a fire to warm up to after a cold day on the slopes. We wouldn't hesitate to return.

FABULOUS HOUSE ON GREAT PROPERTY, SOME MISGIVINGS

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time in Whitefish staying at this property! The house was well kept and clean. Very unique layout, mixed traditional and modern feel, and the pictures do not do it justice. Amazing place to stay for a large group. It is difficult to find, so I would advise finding very detailed instructions beforehand, as well as trying to arrive in the daytime.
As great as our vacation was, I would not rent here again. As we were a group in our late 20's, we were not received kindly from the owner. Even though we are respectful people and work as doctors, engineers, and government service workers, there was an evident mistrust due to our age which was disappointing. Also the owner mentioned that he would stop in at some time during the visit with no specific time or date, which I also felt invaded our privacy. That being said, I think this is a great vacation for those with families or an older crowd, and think perhaps they should put age restrictions on their rental for the future, so that the group always feels welcome.

FANTASTIC STAY. GREAT PLACE TO HAVE CHRISTMAS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed over Christmas this year. Our families are from two different provinces and we met here over Christmas. What a wonderful time at this beautiful home. Not only were we able to have a real Christmas tree cut down but the owners supplied us with all the Christmas tree decorations. As well the children enjoyed the secret passage ways. It was just fanastic. Thank you for the great memories.
