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.

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.

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.
Because this is Montana, we have everything but the ocean. If you want to do it out of doors, we probably have it. Petting zoos with farm animals, drive-in to see bears available, horse-back riding in Glacier Natl Park
