House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Built during the Dam Days, by Bill and Hertha Moore, with Hungry Horse Dam concrete and old-growth Douglas fir from the Rex Brown sawmill, in Coram, the Moore House is solid as a rock. Warm and comfy in Winter and cool and airy in summer, you will relish your stay in the Moore House.

Nestled between Abbot Creek and the Middle Fork of the Flathead River, the Moore House looks south to Columbia Mountain and Badrock Canyon. Just 400' from U.S. Highway 2, access is easy in winter. West Glacier and Glacier National Park are just 9 miles away and Big Mountain Resort is only 20 miles away.

The grounds consist of 2 acres of formal gardens and lawns - ideal for hosting outdoor parties, barbecues and family reunions - and 3 1/2 acres of native forest. There is lots of wildlife and birds to enjoy, with deer, elk, moose and bear frequenting the property, so keep a sharp lookout when you are in the woods.

Canyon Foods, in nearby Hungry Horse, has an excellent butchery and groceries and more shopping is available in Columbia Falls, just 8 miles to the west.

There is lots to do outdoors with world-class recreational opportunities in Glacier National Park and the Flathead National Forest. For those who seek adventure, whitewater rafting on the Middle Fork, hunting and fishing in the Flathead National Forest, hiking and climbing in Glacier and skiing and snowboarding at Big Mountain beckon. For those who prefer to just relax, enjoy the tranquility of your own holiday resort and the amenities of the Moore House.

                                                                Larry D.

                                                                We had a group of 11 friends stay here. The house was well kept and the owners were very hospitable. This is a very good location to from which to visit the surrounding country include Glacier National Park. I heartily recommend this to anyone looking for a great vacation location

                                                                Wonderful home for family and friends

                                                                Sandy A.Maryland

                                                                We had a wonderful stay at this home near Glacier! There were 9 of us and there was plenty of space. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had all the dishes and utensils we needed. The home feels secluded yet close to grocery store, gas station, and a couple of nice shops (The Huckleberry Patch). The owners were super responsive and easy to work with. Would have liked to have a second shower in upstairs bathroom rather than a bath with shower head, but we made do since there is a full shower in master as well as in basement. Carol returned our security deposit while we were still there. Definitely recommend this home to all!

                                                                Wonderful place to stay with family while visiting Glacier

                                                                Sharon M.

                                                                This house was perfect for us! The six of us had lots of room, the house was very comfortable, and the hosts, Carol and Patrick, were delightful: nearby, helpful, but leaving us with complete privacy. With Carol's instructions, we were able to keep the house nice and cool even during hot days. It was wonderful to sit outside in the evenings and for breakfast. The trip to the west entrance to Glacier was easy. This was an absolutely perfect spot for our family to meet from opposite corners, and enjoy a few lovely days in one of the most beautiful spots in the country. Thank you!

                                                                Great for women's hiking trip

                                                                We are a group of 8 women who all want their own beds and this rental house easily accommodated us. We loved the flower gardens and that we were allowed to use the herbs in the greenhouse. We also liked how clean all the towels and bedding was. We had the best trip ever because of the place we stayed and of course the fabulous hiking. Thank you!

                                                                Great Week!

                                                                We are a group of about twelve experienced VRBO renters, and this is one of the cleanest houses we have ever rented. It is in a nice quiet spot, yet is close to tons of adventure. The house was plenty big enough for a group our size. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice, quiet, clean spot to relax after long fun days.

                                                                Great house with helpful owners

It's close enough to everything that anyone would need. None of us would hesitate returning and most likely will. Highly recommended for all sorts of folks.
