Overview

Kalispell Estate Rental Photos and Description

3800 sq. ft--4 separate living areas, 9 bedrooms, near River.

DETAILS ON FULL VACATION PROPERTY at Stillwater Cottages

Our vacation home, which was built in 1905, has been completely remodeled for your comfort, but it still retains the character of the original architecture in early Montana.

Stillwater Cottages is located right off Hwy 2 near downtown Kalispell. We have the privilege of being near the city, with the feeling of being on an acreage in the country because of our extensive, private recreation area extending back to the Stillwater and Whitefish rivers. We have a tree fort and play area for the younger group, plus a private campsite in the shade of the cottonwood trees. Enjoy an evening campfire, or a picnic with friends and family.

Experience outdoor Montana along the private walking trail back to the river. You may see deer, ducks, geese, and other wildlife. Bring a lawn chair or fishing rod to the river's edge and relax on the spacious beach area (small rocks, not sand).

The 2 level home, guest cottage and guest cabin:

Unique privacy of 4 sets of accommodations for you and your friends.

MAIN HOUSE

The 2600 sq. ft, 5 bedroom-2 bath home has been set up as a 3 bedroom main floor plus a 2 bedroom lock-out upper level living area. Both levels are complete with a full kitchen, living area, washer/dryer, entertainment center and much more. Each level has its own private entrances for convenience, privacy and security.

COTTAGE

Studio plus loft, 2 singles in the loft plus a queen sofa bed downstairs; sleeps 3-4. It has a full bath, kitchenette with hot plate, microwave, mini-fridge, and kitchenware. Very attractive--hardwood floors with electric heat and AC.

MAIN CABIN

Completely renovated March 2013.

The Montana cabin has a feel of its own, with a rustic hardwood floor and kitchenette. Yet it has all the amenities for modern living. It has AC, wifi, dish network and queen bed, plus a comfortable larger futon for a 3rd adult or 2 children. Great for a couple or small family get away. The main home, cottage, and cabin all have new carpet, new paint, refinished hardwood floors, and new appliances throughout. The home, cottage and cabin all have AC for summer comfort. There is a fireplace, and/or wood stoves in the facility, which makes this vacation home attractive in all seasons.

TREE FORT

Beyond the cottage and cabin we have a kids' fort situated beside the children's play area. It has two cots for sleeping overnight--kind of a fun experience for the whole family

BACK WOODS CABIN--new 2015

We are hoping to add another cabin in the back yard under the cottonwood trees with running water and electricity and outdoor bathroom. It is situated on a large lawn with a fire pit, horse shoe pit and recreation area. It is in a beautiful location. There is also a tenting area for those who are interested.

No smoking, No pets.

1. Main House (sleeps 12)

The 5 bedroom main house is rated for 10 occupancy. It is split 3 bedroom main floor and a 2 bedroom lock out, each with full privacy and complete, living quarters and full kitchens. The rates quoted in the Rate section of the website is for the main house only n shoulder season and whole property in high season.

2. Whole Property (sleeps 20)

For larger groups we suggest adding the cottage, 2 cabins and tree fort. They are rated as 2.5 people occupancy ea. giving guests more privacy than most VRBOs. For the whole property we have a suggested occupancy of 20 in total. We encourage larger groups to rent the whole property together. This gives you 9 bedrooms, 4 private living areas ea. having its own full or partial kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and all the amenities, all the yard and recreation areas completely private.

For a proper price quote please contact the owner for both current rates and availability.

About David Allan

Who are we? We are a fun loving couple who have recently married after losing our spouses due to health issues. David was born and raised on the family farm in Alberta, Canada, where he resided for most of his life. His love for helping people in need led him into becoming a Christian pastor and conference speaker; both David and Connie are presently involved in this.

David and his family have owned property in the Flathead Valley for 20 years and have enjoyed skiing, golfing, and snowmobiling plus the great shopping. David owned a private airplane for most of this time and flew into Glacier Park International to enjoy their favorite getaway home.

Connie has been a native to the Northwest United States, spending her growing up years in Idaho, California, Washington and the last 30 years as a resident of Kalispell. She has a son and daughter who are now attending college in Montana. Her love for people, music, art and serving is very apparent in all she does.

Why David Allan chose Kalispell

Kalispell has been Connie's home for 34 years but with her daughter leaving home and both of us getting married a five bedroom home was too big for the two of us. We decided to completely renovate the home and turn it into a vacation property. We both love to serve people and thought this would be a good investment to give us something to do in our semi-retirement years.

What makes this estate unique

The location is very unique--being in the city close to the center of Kalispell, with restaurants and shopping nearby, yet you hardly know you are in the city. There are only 6 houses in our neighborhood and they are all very friendly and safe people to be around. Our property extends right back to the Stillwater River where the Whitefish River and the Stillwater join. We have developed our own private campsites with a picnic table and fire pit for your enjoyment in the large wooded area on our property. From there you can explore the river area where beaver, deer and many different birds have their natural habitat.

Our house is split upstairs and downstairs as two separate rental units. We are now offering our whole house, guest cottage and guest cabin on VRBO as we have purchased another residence close by, which will be convenient to manage our VRBO property.

Our whole home was completely renovated in 2012,. We installed a separate covered entrance for the upstairs. We also added air conditioning, making it more comfortable in the summer. We have all new carpet, fresh paint, new cupboards, new appliances, large big screen TVs, WIFI and all you need to enjoy your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great stay in the upstairs suite. Very clean and cozy, great for kids! We really liked the area and plan to come back again. Thanks!

Large family stay

  • 5 of 5
WOW! The photographs do not do this place the justice it deserves; you can tell it is well loved. From the inside to the outside, it is CLEAN and COMFORTABLE. It was very easy to find and the owner's provided driving directions from several locations so that was helpful. Amenities provided were way above what was expected.....even hairdryers! Could not hear the traffic from the main road at all. The owner came by a few times and we hardly noticed so we had a lot of privacy. I would recommend this property, even though we had 10 people in the main house and 5 more in the cabin and cottage.................we never felt crowded. It was a perfect spot to take in the local tourist attractions and come home to a comfy home away from home! Thank you Connie and David!

Nostalgic Home in Kalispell

  • 5 of 5
We have a large family and Stillwater suited us just perfectly. There was space for everyone and some to spare. The house, cottage and cabin were decorated so well. Just fun to look around - including the real porch swing inside the main house. The houses were so well stocked - really the best VRBO place we have rented. The host and hostesses were very accommodating. We all had a great time. Would rent again.

Alberta - Texas

  • 5 of 5
Visiting from Alberta too Texas, this home, nestled along the Stilllwater River, was the perfect place to meet and have a family get-to-gether.13 of us stayed very comfortably here at the the cozy nostalgic home. We rented the back cottage one evening too, which worked well for a family of four with two small children. The swings and play area kept the little ones busy, and the fire pit at the back of the property was a great place to sit and relax in the evening, watching the fire spark and glow. The house had everything we needed. The homeowners were happy to answer any questions we had, and were very accommodating.

Wonderful, well-equipped home for a group!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at the Stillwater Cottages. We had a group of 7 and used the main house. Everything was comfortable, super clean and well-equipped. I really mean well-equipped, they had everything from coffee, laundry soap, shampoo, spices, etc. That really cut down on the groceries we had to buy to cook. The dining area is a little small for a big group, but otherwise everything else was spacious and very comfortable for relaxing. The owners were very nice and offered any help we needed. The location was convenient to the rest of Kalispell (and we could walk to the grocery store) and though there were neighbors on each side and a busy street nearby, the property was very quiet. Would love to stay here again and would highly recommend!

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful vacation in Kalispell. And Dave and Connie's home was perfect. It gave our family a chance to spend time together after a long day skiing. The house was so clean, and well stocked with everything that we could need!. And it was so close to everything. We loved it and are hoping to make this an annual trip! Thanks so much for making our vacation so memorable!
