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 Hamilton

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.

                                                          Beyond expectations! We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Withy Gate.

                                                          Shari P.

                                                          Kris was a great host. Centrally locates, easy walk to town and shops/restaurants. The house was very well appointed and very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

                                                          Really great little house in a really great little town

                                                          Vicki B.Hereford, AZ

                                                          My 3 dogs and I enjoyed our stay at this cute duplex in Hamilton. We were very comfortable and had everything we could possibly need during our stay. I set up some x-pens for a dog turn-out in the nice grassy area in front of the house - with that, and the small fenced side yard, my dogs were able to enjoy some outdoor time watching the squirrels and rabbits while I sat at the umbrelled outdoor table. Kristine is a great landlord! I appreciated being able to use the garage for sports equipment during our stay. The air conditioner cooled the place nicely - and I rarely used it in the evenings as the house was very cool and shaded by a huge tree. Nice neighbors; nice neighborhood. The kitchen was adorable - complete with Kuerig coffee maker! There were so many good place to eat in town that I don't think I can actually list a favorite.

                                                          In sum: A great little house in a great little town! Would definitely stay there again if I was in the area.

                                                          Thanks so much for choosing to stay at Withy Gate, so glad you appreciated the setting and the house. I am only sorry that I didn't get to see your sweet dogs practicing their agility work--the props looked so interesting! You are welcome back anytime!


                                                          Charming cottage in the historic neighborhood area of Hamilton

                                                          Allyson W.Bonita Springs, FL

                                                          Perfect, charming, adorable, peaceful, lovely. I could go on with many superlatives and it still it wouldn't be enough. I loved this cottage. It was perfect for my month's stay. The kitchen was complete with everything you need to cook. The refrigerator is small but there is a full size freezer in the garage for your use. The AC cools off the place quite nicely. The grill was great to use while sitting at the patio table. Many places deliver food--just sit outside and wait for it because the house sits on the back of the lot.

                                                          Great property

                                                          Linda P.

                                                          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.

                                                          Just another update on my 4th (yes 4th) stay at Kris's place. I've ran out of superlatives in describing Withy. If you're visiting Hamilton just book it. You won't be disappointed
