COUNTRY GEM-BRING YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR PETS

Kalispell House Rental Photos and Description

Bring your family and your pets and 'live' Montana

This home has room for the entire family, both indoors and out, and also offers a full hook-up RV space, available to rent separately or with the home. Whether your are heading to Glacier National Park or any of the many other things to do in the Flathead Valley, you'll love to come home to the peacefulness of the Country Gem and relax on the deck with your favorite cold beverage while enjoying the quiet views of the surrounding mountains. Just 7 minutes from town, 20 minutes from Flathead Lake, 30 minutes from Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain, and only 5-30 minutes from several golf courses, you are conveniently located to whatever you would like to do. There are outdoor concerts, art festivals, and 2 summer theatres in the area.

This custom home has cherry cabinets, tile and laminate floors, lots of light and an open feel with great views and an inviting fireplace, a piano and a guitar. The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances and cooking needs (food not included). Enjoy the 55' HD LED flat screen TV to watch movies from the DVD library, Netflix or listen to music inside or outside on the deck. Bring your laptop and take advantage of the high-speed wireless internet. The bedroom has skylights above the queen bed and there are large walk-in closets with enough space for all. A futon (double) and a queen luxury air-mattress are available in addition to the queen bed in the master bedroom and a single bed in a separate bedroom downstairs. There are 2 separate bathrooms, I full bath and 1 half bath, upstairs with sinks and large mirrors for your needs.

The home has a total of 5 skylights to let in all the Montana sunshine, a large deck facing south with a smaller deck off the bedroom and a 6 person hot tub to relax in while enjoying the stars at night. There are 2 tree farms lining 2 sides of the property and a long row of poplar trees to relax under in the afternoons. There's plenty of room for the entire family to play outdoors, whether it is croquet, volleyball, horseshoes, yard games or sitting in the shade or around a campfire.

Because pets are welcome in this Country Gem, there is a 'doggy' door upstairs with a custom area for 'little' dogs to go out and 2 large outdoor chain-link kennels for your use as well. The yard, almost an acre, is newly fenced so dogs and little children can't get into the pasture with the horses accidentally. The owner is a certified professional dog trainer, so if your dog has any annoying behaviors or just needs a little friendly reminder on it's manners, these can be addressed, with an appointment, while you are out 'playing' in Montana. Dog bathing/grooming and doggy daycare are also available if scheduled.

Cleanliness is a priority in this immaculate Country Gem and non-toxic or natural products are used as much as possible making the home safe for your entire family, including your pets. Attention has been paid to every detail to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

I grew up in the Bitterroot Valley, south of Missoula, MT on a cattle ranch and was always on the back of a horse. After marrying, I was a mom of 3 children, including a set of twins, all of whom I home-schooled for several years. As a younger woman I trained horses and I've owned to breeding stallions and mares in the past. I've ridden jumping horses, done dressage, and currently do 'natural horsemanship'. As my children grew up I began showing dogs in conformation. I raise and show Shih Tzu and am a Karen Pryor Certified Positive Reinforcement Dog Trainer. I use all postiive methods and teach as well as train. Animals have always been a focal point of my life for as long as I can remember. I love Montana, the outdoors and all that there is to do here. Glacier Park never fails to take my breath away, and tho I've been other places, there's no place like Montana.

Debi Buchholz purchased this house in 2004

I moved to Kalispell in 2003 and after looking at property all over the valley, finally found this piece of land. It is in the farming area of Creston. It has amazing views, is private, yet close to everything there is to do. I absolutely love being next to the tree farms. I can have trees without having to look straight up to see the sun. The home was originally built to be a guest house upstairs above a horse barn, but life circumstances changed those plans, so now it's where I choose to be, and I love it!

This home is built to follow the sun throughout the day and to enjoy all the views and their beauty. It is secluded yet close, has decks, privacy, and a full RV hook-up. There is room for all to play and your pets are welcome. Everything is very clean and I'll provide you with all the information and guidance that I can for a wonderful stay in Montana.

Glacier Gem

  • 4 of 5
This is a terrific place. Wonderful location that gives you a remote feel with the convenience of having town close at hand. Glacier was a perfect distance. Not too far. Well stocked kitchen. The owner was caring and very responsive. We brought our two pups with us and they enjoyed the country air. One night we got to watch an amazing thunderstorm from the deck which provides amazing views. The sunsets were spectacular too. We toughed it out a bit by not using the air conditioner much. Most evenings a cool breeze would come up and cool things down. Definitely best for a couple, but more can stay. The second bedroom is downstairs off the horse barn, so I felt more comfortable having my son stay with us in the main living area on the futon bed. The main bedroom doesn't have full walls to the ceiling, so privacy is a bit compromised. We didn't really find it a major issue, yet some might care. Overall we could not have had a better experience.

Owner's Response: The downstairs, an open garage space, has a concrete floor, was always kept scrubbed and clean and was not used. At 1 time years ago there were new horse corral panels set up in one corner for emergency use; these were still in place. It has since been totally remodeled and finished out. The upstairs has an air conditioner in place for use if desired. There is 1 fully furnished single bedroom downstairs.

Review #6631170 Truly A Gem

Our decision to rent this property was based primarily on the fact that our dog would be able to accompany us. We started checking for a spot just one week prior to our available dates. The owner of this property was extremely cooperative in answering our concerns and working in a time when we would be able to visit. Although she was involved in a conference during that time she contacted us frequently whenever phone or computer service was available. We appreciated her friendly service. The property description, pictures and reviews made this location sound like a perfect base. Although our hurriedly made plans for a short end of summer trip included daily tours of the Flathead Valley, our focus changed upon arrival at this wonderful retreat. What a charming home away from home. The expansive deck covered with pots of flowers and comfortable seating captured our interest from the first moment. The view across fields and trees to the distant mountains provided a tranquil, peaceful break for us. The property was as described, a bright, cheery open living area. The home was clean, comfortable and well organized. We were able to find everything that we needed. The kitchen area was huge and well stocked with all the equipment to make meal preparation easy. The bedroom was large as well, with a comfortable queen sized bed and a huge walk in closet arrangement. The special arrangements for those travelling with pets such as the dog bed, food dishes and chew treats were much appreciated. Our small dog loved the pet door onto the deck. He enjoyed his long explorations around the property and his chance to sleep in the sunshine on the deck. There are times when a peaceful, quiet rest is needed and this home fulfilled that for us. Although access to all the wonderful activities in this area would be easy from this location we chose the serenity offered. While we enjoyed all of the amenities, we truly lived on the larger of the two decks for most of the day. A memory of sitting in a private, sunny spot with a good book and a hummingbird feeding less than a foot away will be sure to bring us back. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

A stay in the country......

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a remote, user friendly environment look no further...Everything is within a reasonable travelling distance....Only draw back is the land owner is living on the property with dogs....if you don't like a 6:00am alarm clock with dogs barking then you may have to look elsewhere...Overall though a very clean, adequate, and charming stay...Some of us checked in a day early and the landowner was really easy to work iijjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj

Birthday Weekend

  • 4 of 5
My family and I stayed at the acerage from July 13-16, 2013. The house was very clean and exactly as the pictures on the site. Debbie was very easy to contact and willing to answer all questions. We brought our two dogs with us and she even left out a doggie bed and dishes for them which was very thoughtful. There were 6 of us, my, husband and I, our son and godson and my in-laws.

The kitchen was very well equipped with all the cooking utensils including a food processor..this was a new experience for us with vacation rentals. There was also every spice you could want so no need to purchase any.

There were two negatives; first the property is advertised as a two bedroom. The 2nd bedroom is downstairs in the barn/garage. The room was clean but only had a single bed and was a bit stuffy. So if you were thnking to have your children stay in the room it would not work. Fortunately there is a futon that sleeps two and a queensize blow up mattress.

Second there is only one full bathroom in the house and this in the master bedroom so it takes some coordinating if you were sharing with another family. There is a half bath in the main living area which helps. There is no bathroom available for the 2nd bedroom in the barn.

The property is very well kept, and the view from the second floor deck is fantastic, as is the new BBQ and hot tub.

The house is located within minutes of Kalispell, which makes it close to everything you need.

You can make this property work for you, it was just not what we expected when we saw 2 bedrooms. Also Debbie did not mention this when we spoke on the phone.

Owner's Response: I encourage prospective guests to read the description which clearly states that the 2nd bedroom is downstairs, separate from the rest of the home. There is a large window with a screen that can be opened for much fresh air, which makes it very comfortable. The description also describes the bathroom arrangements. I apologize if any misunderstandings have occurred.
