About Sarah

Hello! We are Ryan and Sarah O'Rourke - owners of GLACIER COUNTRYSIDE ESCAPE.

Ryan and I were born and raised right here in the Flathead Valley. We have been married for 17 years. After going away for college, we decided this is the best place to call home. We love all that there is to do here in the Flathead. We regularly bike, hike, camp, boat, fish and just take in the views. We are both high school teachers at Stillwater Christian School in Kalispell. Ryan coaches high school soccer and Sarah recently retired from coaching basketball after we welcomed our first baby, Adeline, in June of 2017. We would like to offer to you our wonderful home for the summer months. We hope you enjoy vacationing in Montana as much as we enjoy living here!

Sarah purchased this house in 2009

Why Sarah chose Columbia Falls

We spent several years looking for the perfect home for us. This home is located in the central valley, coveted by locals for its convenience to the 3 major towns in the valley – Kalispell, Columbia Falls, and Whitefish. The great room in this home is perfect for entertaining large groups which we love to do. The setting is peaceful with beautiful views. We hope you love our home as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

Because this is our home during the school year you will find all of the amenities you would expect in the home. From gadgets in the kitchen to board games in the closet, you will find all you would expect to find in a house.

Awesome !

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six adults found Ryan and Sarah's home to be very comfortable. It is beautifully decorated, and was immaculately clean. The location was ideal for touring GNP and the surrounding area on our motorcycles. We could not have imagined a more welcoming place to call home for 8 days!

Beautiful home in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful home. Located on a quiet street but with easy access to Glacier National Park, Columbia Falls, and Whitefish with its galleries and restaurants. The house was spotless and extremely comfortable, and contained all the modern conveniences. The WiFi was very fast and the television had every channel we could imagine. The owners, Sarah and Ryan, were very welcoming and friendly, and provided great advice on things to see and do, especially hikes in Glacier NP.

After a hard day in the NP we relaxed and recovered in the spa. The BBQ on the back porch was great, and it cooked steaks as good as any we have had in a restaurant. We stayed as a couple, but the house is large and able to accomodate families or groups of friends. I recommend this place without any hesitation. We travel frequently, and this is the nicest place we have stayed in. If you are visiting Glacier NP, we couldn't think of a better place to stay. Keith and Glenda, Australia.

Great choice

  • 5 of 5

My wife researches our stays extensively and always picks good ones. This was one of the best. It was very clean and well equipped and the owners were great to work with. Close enough to GNP but far enough away with space to roam that it was a perfect retreat.

Great Place for a Glacier Park Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was an incredibly clean and well decorated home, well appointed, with a great layout for a family stay. We appreciated the home as a great base to go into Glacier and Whitefish. The adjacent property has horses grazing, especially in the morning and the yard is well tended and great for kids to run around.

The house is really comfortable and has all the things you need including a nice grill and kitchen gadgets. I highly recommend a stay here. Ryan and Sarah were very hospitable and welcoming, but we didn't have any issues. I had the feeling if we had any questions or issues they would be all over it. Thanks for the comfortable stay and the great memories.

Glacier National Park Vacation of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect location to visit the park daily and have a wonderful, relaxing place to return to at night. It was close to West Glacier, Whitefish Mountain and the airport making it a great location for all our daily activities. The view off the patio was as beautiful as being in the park.
