Unforgettable Montana vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an unforgettable vacation at the cabin! Being from Ohio, I wanted them to have a real Montana experience, and this was it. The cabin is beautifully restored and comfortable, yet offers that rustic Montana feel, complete with horses and longhorn cattle right outside. The kids loved the animals and visited with them every day. The location is perfect. It is close to both Kalispell and Whitefish for shopping and night life, yet when you return to the cabin you feel like you have a piece of Montana to yourselves under the vastness of the big sky. Martin Creek Road was nice for morning walks. The caretaker was always available and incredibly helpful. We highly recommend staying here!

Wonderful family friendly property

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property at very short notice (2 hours) and Fred was very accommodating. The property was a perfect base for our 8 day Glacier National Park exploration, it was great for our 3 children aged 14, 16 & 19 and our Labrador. We enjoyed the peace and tranquility and the wrap around porch was perfect for early morning coffee and for evening BBQ's. Close to Whitefish and Kalispell. The property manager Kirk was great too and gave us ideas for what to do. All in all a wonderful experience. We will definitely book again.

Wonderful cabin - perfect place for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

The atmosphere was relaxing, peaceful and very welcoming. Log home was stocked with amenities: books, CDs, DVDs, games for indoor and outdoor fun, maps, tour information, toys for kids and a sweet horse nearby. Facility was clean, well stocked with kitchen utensils and a caretaker nearby when needed. To assist other visitors, bring maps as the GPS doesn't do well in these mountain regions. We visited Whitefish which is a great place to shop for unique gifts, Kalispell and the Conrad mansion tour and of course the beautiful Glacier National Park. We took the red jammer tour through the park so all (including the driver) could enjoy the majestic views. Favorite memory from our visit to this log cabin was sitting on the deck, enjoying a morning cup of coffee and just listening to mountain silence while smelling clean Montana air. It doesn't get better! I give this rental a huge 5 stars!!!

Montana heaven

  • 5 of 5

As a native Montanan now living in Minnesota, I try to go "home" at least once a year. My siblings still live in the valley. Some of my grown children(who live in different parts of the country)joined us for the week. The setting is spectacular. We were able to have large gatherings of relatives for dinners on the deck. The kitchen was the best stocked kitchen of any house we have rented thoughout the country. The location is close to both Kalispell and Whitefish, as well as Glacier and Whitefish mountain. We will return. Fred and the crew were very responsive to our needs. My granddaughter loved the resident horse, Skybuck.

The Right Place for a Montana Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

River Meadow Ranch was a step back in time to the Montana Days you dream about. The Cabin gave all 13 of us the feel of the old with a bit of the modern with lots of space. The valley driving to the cabin was beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed the Deer, American Eagles, Long Horn Cattle, Sky Buck, the horse on the property and all the Columbian Squirrels. The Cabin was a great base camp for all our adventures to Whitefish, Big Mountain and of course Glacier Park.

River Valley Ranch was clean and had everything you may need to have a long Montana Vacation. Kirk the caretaker was there for our every need. I want to thank Fred and Kirk for a wonderful stay and I hope to come back to River Valley Ranch in the future. If you want an old fashion Montana stay this is the place.

Perfect family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful log home with lots of charm, character and space in a gorgeous Montana landscape. The photos on this site were very accurate but the property is even more beautiful in person. Views out every window and western decor inside this spacious home made this the perfect multi family gathering spot. We had 6 adults and 5 grandchildren, our family reunion was accommodated in style. The owner was attentive to every detail making this home the best vacation spot one can imagine, nothing has been left out of this clean, well maintained, warm family friendly home! This home has the feel of a cozy and inviting family property. Lots to do here, the big yard, with a nearby river and even a gentle horse, is complete with lots of outside games and places to explore. The caretaker and owner were both so nice and went the extra mile to make our family reunion perfect. This was my first experience with a VRBO and I was so impressed! We will be back.
