SPACIOUS HOME CENTRAL TO GLACIER COUNTRY AND IT'S COUNTLESS ACTIVITIES

Columbia Falls House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Baths, 2nd Family/TV Room Downstairs, Indoor Sauna, (Sleeps 9)

In a quiet neighborhood in the northeast corner of Columbia Falls you will be central to all the activities the Flathead County has to offer. At the head of the North Fork Road you are only a few minutes from The North Fork River, Flathead National Forest and Glacier National Park.

Enjoy a very private, forested environment 150yds up the hill from the Flathead River which supports abundant wildlife. Expect visits by wild animals such as white tail deer, turkeys, many different birds, we've even had raccoons on the deck and a moose ate our Bing cherry tree! The top story of the house is street level where you enter from the west and north then opens up to 2nd story living to the east and the south where you leave the neighborhood behind. Many windows in the home let the outside in with lots of natural light. Opening the glass French doors from the main living area onto the 2nd story log railed deck that wraps around the east and south sides of the house expands the living space to the outdoors seamlessly. You'll feel as though you live in a tree house. The lower level of the house daylights out to the east and south with glass French doors leading from the downstairs family room to a patio covered by the 2nd story deck. The moonlight, the outdoor lighting and many trees and shrubs cast shadows that play beautifully throughout the house and property at night. When the snow settles on the tree bows and the deck railing you are wrapped in winter wonderland. The knotty hickory cabinetry and knotty pine trim with the log accents add to the warmth of this in-floor radiant heated home. An indoor sauna will help you sink into comfort after a hard day at play.

With an open floor plan and a well stocked kitchen we hope to make cooking/baking and entertaining as convenient and easy as possible. There will be many herbs growing in the planters/flower beds when in season, for your use. We will also stock herbs and spices, flour, sugar and any other basic staples we can think of for your convenience. Bathrooms will also have some emergency toiletry supplies.

Area Activities:

-Glacier National Park (15 min), Wilderness, Forest Service (5 min) and State Lands (over 3 million acres) for: Hiking, Hunting, Fishing, Snowmobiling, Rock Climbing, Skiing, Wildlife Viewing, Horseback Riding, Huckleberry Picking. Snowmobiling is as close as 5 min. to Flathead National Forests Canyon Creek parking/trail head. Go a few more miles and access any kind of terrain you desire. Hunting is even closer.

-Many Beautiful Lakes and Rivers: Fishing, Rafting, Kayaking, Sailing, Jet Skiing, Swimming, Water Skiing, Para-sailing, Snorkeling/Diving, Wind-Surfing, Boating. Flathead Lake (45 min) is the largest natural fresh water lake west of the Mississippi. At almost 30 miles long it is a spectacular beauty with a view of the Rocky Mountains alongside so you can book a tour on one of the large tour boats or rent your own watercraft for a fantastic day on the water. Surrounded by mountains and forest, Whitefish Lake and the public beaches are only 20 min. from the house and 2 min. from downtown Whitefish.

-Whitefish Mountain (formerly Big Mountain) (30 min) and Blacktail Mountain (60+ min) for: Skiing, Snowboarding, X-country Skiing, Sledding, Mountain Biking, and much more! Ride mountain top to mountain top on Whitefish Mountains Zip Line and pick Huckleberries, use the 20 miles of Mountain Biking Trails in the summer or Ski the best Moguls or Powder or Trails in the Northwest in the winter.

-Meadow Lake Golf Course (5 min) is 18 holes of 4 star golfing amongst streams, lakes and mountains. A par 72 course only 5 minutes from the house. The valley sports many beautiful championship golf courses such as: Big Mountain Golf Club, Buffalo Hill Golf Club or Village Greens in Kalispell (25 min), Play golf on Flathead Lake at Bigforks Eagle Bend Golf Club (30 min) or Polson Bay Golf Course on the south end of the Flathead Lake (60+ min) Take that opportunity to drive there and back along both sides of Flathead Lake. Whitefish Lake Golf Club in Whitefish (15 min) ... or surrounded by nature at Glacier Golf in West Glacier (20 min), the entrance to Glacier National Park, and along the Middle Fork of the Flathead River will surely have a Bald Eagle soaring over and deer browsing and perhaps even an elk or a bear, wolf or coyote wander through.

My name is Valerie , I was born and raised here and my husbands name is Denny and he has lived here most of his life. Our children are gone now and we would like to go spend some of our semi-retirement years with our horses and other critters on some small acreage we have out of town ... in a smaller house. We want to keep this house and we could use extra retirement income so vacation rental is an excellent option for us. We hope you enjoy this home as much as we have.

Valerie purchased this house in 2004

We love the beauty and majesty of this country, it has been a constant reminder to us of Gods Creation and His Love for Us. This home has been a Blessing for us as we will try to make it a Blessing for you.

This home is in a neighborhood on the edge of town, within only a minute of downtown Columbia Falls and all of its amenities and yet central and close to all of the activities in the Flathead Valley. On this special little property we are surrounded by the trees and mountains we love. As soon as you enter the property, the neighborhood seems to disappear as you are wrapped in nature and a very relaxing setting. You can occasionally hear the train whistle 1/4 mile away when outside or when the windows or doors are open.

WONDERFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
Everything needed for an excellent stay is yours here! The kitchen is very well stocked with spices, tools, pots, pans & serving dishes. The photos truly don't do the house the justice, since it is well decorated, more than comfortable & simply homey & fun. We loved the yard also. Books are readily available & a DVD of Glacier shirts on the coffee table. I'll be recommending Val, who was very accommodating, and her beautiful home!

GREAT VACATION HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house about a 25 minute drive to the Glacier Park west entrance. It's about as close to the park you can get without staying at a lodge inside or just outside the park or at an RV camp.
The house was immaculately clean and well stocked with everything you could need, especially in the kitchen (even supplies for packing lunches to take with us on hikes in the park).
The porch was great to relax and eat meals on.
The owner provided helpful info about the area. Columbia Falls has very good grocery stores and some food options. Whitefish is only a 20 minute drive and has a nice street with small shops and good restaurants.
Trains did go by throughout the day and night with a surprisingly loud horn but after the first night they didn't bother us.
The only thing that surprised me was that the house is in a much denser neighborhood than I expected from the pictures and description. There is a little apartment community next to the house and there were often kids outside playing, but the neighborhood was still overall pretty quiet. I would definitely stay at the house again.

FAMILIES FROM EAST AND WEST

  • 5 of 5
We selected Columbia Falls for its proximity to winter recreational opportunity, and because it was midway for family members to meet. The house was spacious, modern, clean, and uncommonly well equipped. We showed up only with food and clothing, and much of the food and all of the food preparation items might as well have been left home. EVERYTHING was there. Val, the owner, emailed daily to be sure we didn't need anything, and offered to pay for any other household furnishings or utensils we might want/need to buy. We didn't have to take her up on that one!!

The radiant floor heat was especially comfortable after a day in the snow, and anybody who likes cold weather activity will appreciate the sauna.

There is a train track not far away that carried infrequent traffic, but everybody in our group enjoys the sound of trains.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and considered it a great bargain.

Owner's Response: Hi Marc, Thanks so much for the review. Some people USE the house and the kitchen more than others, it makes me feel good when it is used and enjoyed, it makes all the work extra worthwhile. It was a real pleasure having you here. Best Regards, Val

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE NEAR GLACIER NATIONAL PARK

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at this house for four nights and wished we could have stayed longer! The house was beautiful and very clean. The kitchen was very well equipped. The house was very easy to get to and just a short drive to Glacier or to Whitefish. The instructions and tips left by the owners were most helpful and accurate! Also, the owners were extremely easy to deal with and very accommodating! I would recommend this house to anyone!

CARLA AND FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
Totally loved this house! Everything is exactly described. We stayed here while visiting Glacier National Park. Thank you, Val and Denny, for sharing your lovely home. We especially loved sitting out on the deck with the tiny lights around the railings. Great for our evening relaxation as well as our morning coffee. Excellent location for visiting the National Park.

JACK

  • 5 of 5
It was like going home. A lot of stuff for cooking, including plenty of seasonings. Enough plates, bowls and cuts for 8-10 people. The entire house was very clean and decorated well in Rocky Mountain style. The long big balcony is so spacious and comfortable surrounded by tall trees. The owner put a lot of flower pots around. BBQ Grill is just convenient even though we did not have a chance to use.
