About Kristine Komar

I was born and raised in Seattle and first visited the Bitterroot Valley in 1979 when a girlfriend invited me to go home with her for the County Fair. I fell in love with this landscape and knew I would one day live here. After many more visits, I moved to Hamilton in 1999. Withy Gate was my first home and I loved being able to walk out in the morning and see the mountains or walk to the river or for a cup of coffee with friends. I now live about a mile away in Grantsdale where I am restoring a 1890-1930's farmhouse and outbuildings. I enjoy sharing Withy Gate and the Bitterroot with my guests and look forward to helping connect you to the best of the Bitterroot.

Kristine Komar purchased this house in 1999

Why Kristine Komar chose Bitterroot Valley

Withy Gate was my first home in Hamilton and when I purchased a slightly larger place I found I just could not part with it and so decided to convert my lovely duplex into a vacation rental so that others could enjoy it, too.

What makes this house unique

From Withy Gate, it’s an easy walk to Main Street, Hamilton where you'll find restaurants, a great bookstore, banks, shopping, and the post office. There's a history museum and several neighborhood churches. A local grocery store—with espresso stand—is just two blocks away. The private front yard, with patio furniture, umbrella and gas grill is perfect for outdoor summer living. It’s a short walk to the Bitterroot River and River Park where there is an extensive trail system. Completely updated and super clean, this cozy space is ready for you, your home away from home.

Great property

Everything was perfect. Plenty of room for me and my three dogs. Lots of storage. The location was great. I could walk to the library, restaurants and the Saturday market.

We stayed two weeks, and it felt like home. The bed is super comfortable, the kitchen has absolutely everything, and we ate out on the patio every day for breakfast and dinner. Thanks, Kris, for a great stay.

Loved this little place!

  • 5 of 5

Withy Gate is a delightful, comfy house located in a friendly neighborhood only a short walk to downtown or the Bitterroot River. Well located for lots of other activities as well. Kris has thought of everything to make you feel a little pampered, but right at home. Amazing what she got into that lovely little kitchen! Loved it, and hope to do it again!

2nd stay was just as good

  • 5 of 5

As promised, I didn't hesitate to book my 2nd stay with Kris. It felt like coming back home when I walked through the front door. Everything was immaculate and my stay was once again perfect. It was so good in fact that I have already booked for June 2015. I can see this trip being an annual stay for me.
