Large, Country House w/ view, 3+ Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9), Very Clean
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 19 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. Ryan is a high school teacher and Varsity soccer coach at Stillwater Christian School in Kalispell. Sarah recently "retired" from teaching high school science and coaching basketball after we welcomed our first baby, Adeline, in June of 2017. Shortly after purchasing this property we decided it would make a great summer vacation home for travelers. As teachers, we were rarely home in the summer - but instead were out enjoying Montana. We began renting it the first summer we owned it and loved the experience of hosting out of town guests. Originally, we stayed at Ryan's parents' home during the summer (when we weren't camping!) When Adeline joined the family, we finished up a small apartment in the barn that we built on the edge of the property and moved in there for the summer months. We would like to offer to you our wonderful home for your visit to the Glacier area. 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!

Great Family Getaway!
We really enjoyed our stay at Columbia Falls! The home was beautiful and had everything we needed and more. You could tell Sarah and Ryan took pride in their property, it was immaculately kept and they took the time to think of everything that we might need. It was perfect for our family trip. Would book again for sure :)
Thank you Patricia. We were happy to host you!
One of the best
We stayed first week of October 2019, and selected this home as a base for exploring Glacier NP. We wish we could have stayed for a week in this beautiful home! Spacious, clean, well appointed. Large yard with beautiful views. About 20 minutes from West Glacier. Wonderful, gracious hosts. No surprises.
This is EXACTLY what a VRBO home ought to be like!!
Beautiful home in Columbia Falls Montana

This home is located in a great location to visit Glacier National Park, Whitefish, and Big Fork and Flat Head Lake. The home is very well maintained. Highly recommend!
This was an exceptionally clean and comfortable home for us to base our Glacier National Park vacation from. A well equipped kitchen overlooking a wonderful great room made for relaxing after a day of sightseeing. The view from the patio is exceptional.
Home away from home
We had a wonderful family vacation to Glacier National Park from this beautiful and comfortable home! Everyone agreed it felt just like being at home from the moment we arrived. It was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed. We really appreciated the bear spray, cooler and ice packs that were available. The kitchen had everything we needed and more, and we enjoyed cooking all our meals together. Thank you for a wonderful week!
Perfect location - very nice home.
We enjoyed our stay here so much that we anticipate returning next year. The owners were very welcoming and the home was clean and had all the amenities needed for a relaxing trip.
This home is located in the coveted central Flathead Valley – convenient to all of the attractions the Glacier Country has to offer. Glacier Park is a 25 minute drive away along with the many activities in the West Glacier area including Whitewater Rafting, the Amazing Fun Center and the House of Mystery. We are 8 minutes to the resort town of Whitefish is nestled at the bottom of Whitefish Mountain Resort (aka Big Mountain), a year-round destination. Also nearby is the Big Sky Waterslides water park just outside of Columbia Falls. The largest town in the area is Kalispell and only a short drive away.
