We chose Kalispell, Montana because it is a great community in which to live, work and play and to raise a family. Our area in the Flathead Valley offers phenomenal recreational opportunities all year round. And since we love the countryside, but still like the idea of a neighborhood, we opted for this rural cluster of homes tucked within a Ponderosa grove. We designed our home to efficiently accommodate our family while conserving on square footage. We were inspired by the concept of an open floor plan, with nooks for study or office work, and bedrooms located in different areas of the house with the common area in the center.

Our love of nature led us to focus on the landscaping with the goal of recreating a cottage-style, flower garden around our manmade pond and cascading creek. We enjoy listening to the birdsong and watching our feathered friends visit the pond. One year, we even had robins nesting in a hanging basket on the front porch!

Now we have approached a time when downsizing makes sense and renting to vacationers helps us stay connected to a very special place!

Michael Blend purchased this house in 2002

This neighborhood is wonderful because it is just outside of Kalispell far enough to feel in the country, yet it is very convenient to shopping and town activities. We wanted to be on a paved road and have a manageable sized yard and yet the quiet and privacy of a country setting. This location gave us all we were looking for and more.

As business owners, we work in town and appreciate the benefits of being close to Kalispell. The people are friendly, the entertainment and arts scene is always interesting, and the dining options are plenty! You may prefer to dine in however, with our fully equipped kitchen which is open to the dining and living areas. This allows the cook to prepare a meal while enjoying the company of others.

We often frequent the local Farmer’s Markets and gather with friends to explore the great outdoors! We also like to walk around the neighborhood and down past the meadow, just so I can hear the Meadowlark sing one last time before retiring for the night.

Beautiful place - so relaxing!

We loved the house from the minute we walked in. We were there for a mini family reunion for my mother's 80th birthday, and when we left she said it was the best birthday ever.
The house was beautiful, spotless, and had every comfort of home. The kitchen was very well equipped, and we loved the big dining table. It was great for games as well as dining.
We also appreciated the bath amenities - extra towels, soaps, and shampoo.
The gardens, pond, and decks were wonderful - so relaxing to just sit and watch the birds or enjoy lunch outdoors.
During our stay we went to Glacier Park twice and also enjoyed the town of Kalispell - golfing, shopping downtown, and dining out. Diana recommended The Docks restaurant, but the night we planned to go there was a rain storm. We'll save that for next time. We would definitely recommend this property and would love to stay there again if we make it back up that way.

wonderful retreat home

our second year here. Exactly as shown and described. Perfect for our group of 8. One thing we noticed and appreciated was that there was LOTS of hot water for our showers each morning. Diana was so kind to have turned the furnace up and have some lights on for our night time arrival. have already booked it for next year. Shopping and restaurants close, but country quiet when wanted. Hopefully next year the weather allows us the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful back yard.
Owner's Response: Michael and I are so glad you were able to return to Bird-Watcher's Haven. Thank you for choosing our vacation rental for your annual Montana vacation! We look forward to providing the same comfort and service to your delightful group next year. Diana

Wonderful vacation house in Kalispell

My party of 8 stay at the Bird-Watcher's Haven for 3 nights for touring of Glacier National park. The house is very clean and well-maintained with sufficient space for everyone to take a break after the day trip. The location is very convenient. Many major retailers are only 5 minutes away; Costco, Walmart, etc. I will definitely stay there again and recommend this property to all my friends.

Family Reunion

  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Thank you for sharing your lovely home! The home was very comfortable for our family. It was well stocked, clean, with nice linens and in a great location. The garden is beautiful and the patio a special place to relax after visiting Glacier Park and the Huckleberry Festival in Whitefish. The family especially enjoyed having meals and conversation at the round table!
Thank you for helping with the hook-up of the RV. After a rest, my brother-in-law continues his bike ride to the west coast.
We hope to vacation again in Kalispell and would indeed, want to stay in your home.
Donna from Redmond, Wa.
Owner's Response: Michael and I are glad you found Bird-Watcher's Haven so relaxing in the midst of your family get-together! That round dining room table you mentioned is a family heirloom from Michael's side. Four to eight guests can be served from the large lazy susan with the greatest of ease. It has served many an event; if the table could talk, we could probably write a few good novels!
