About Tom and Sue (owners)

We (Tom and Sue) purchased this property in Whitefish in 1991. Before buying our land here we traveled throughout the Rocky Mountains looking for the 'perfect place': great outdoor activities, close to 'wild' areas and National Parks, exceptional natural beauty, abundant wildlife, friendly community with conveniences close by, and easy access from an airport. We think that this is truly one of the 'last best places', and we feel very privilged to own and be stewards of this little piece of paradise. We have lived on Beaver Creek Ranch since 1994, and we completed building our second home on the ranch in 2011. We are very pleased with how it turned out, and look forward to sharing it with friends and guests. We are amazed each day at the natural beauty of our 'back yard', and thoroughly enjoy viewing the wildlife that frequents the area. Each of our past guests, whether family, friends or VRBO guests, have commented that this is one of the most relaxing and memorable vacations they have ever experienced. We take great pleasure in sharing our home and the experiences it offers with others who love the outdoors, and enjoy the peace, quiet and tranquility that Beaver Creek Ranch provides.

Tom is a semi-retired real estate broker and was a director with one of the world's premier five-star hospitality companies. We strive to exceed all of our guest expectations and provide a truly exceptional vacation experience. We spend our free time hiking, biking, golfing, floating on rivers, and riding our horses in the mountains. We would be happy to share our local knowledge with you to insure your vacation is memorable.

Why Tom and Sue (owners) chose Montana

Being on Beaver Creek Ranch you feel as if you are a world apart, yet, you are just a few short minutes to the town of Whitefish, and easy acess (20 minutes) to Kalispell airport. We can drive to Whitefish or Costco center with virtually no traffic or stop signs, but you are private and quiet when you get home. The private valley we sit in is unlike anything else in the area. When people who have lived in Flathead Valley for years first come here they often comment that they had no idea there was a place like this so close to town. It is truly unique, and irreplaceable.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy having our first cup of coffee in the morning sitting on the patio or by the Great Room windows and watching the sun rise on the high rock cliffs across the meadow, listening to the quiet, and watching for wildlife. We try to take walks every day, as we enjoy the miles of trails we have right from our back door. As much as we enjoy all of the activites to be found in Whitefish and Glacier Park, we particularly enjoy coming home to Beaver Creek Ranch, as it is a world apart, spectacular in it's beauty, and exceptionally quiet and peaceful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beaver Creek Ranch exceeded all of our expectations. The property and the home were incredible, the views spectacular, and the location very convenient for all of the ativities we enjoyed. It was one of the most memorable vacations we have ever had.

A Slice of Montana Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous home in a fabulous setting. Charming and spotless. The home overlooks a lush meadow and forested hills. The views are soothing and serene. We enjoyed the great patio, screened in porch and lovely Montana-style decor of this very comfortable home. In fact, we felt right at home! It is in a very private location, quiet, and yet close to town. We found lots to do - walks in the woods, Glacier National Park, charming Whitefish, lakes and rivers, etc. We loved watching the deer and wild turkeys. We hope to visit Whitefish again and enjoy this great vacation home.

Truly Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabalous stay this month in Whitefish at this home. One of the many things you will notice upon arrival is the time and effort the owners have put into the property. They make it easy, things are labeled, directions given for everything you need. We walked in the evenings down the road and enjoyed the local scenery. We all decided it was our favorite VRBO rental to date and we will 100% be back. Book it....you won't regret it for a second!

Gorgeous setting, immaculate home, perfect Montana getaway

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Sue take pride in their home and provided a beautiful, well-appointed home for our recent stay. They provided clear directions to the property which is about 15-20 minutes from both Whitefish and Kalispell, as well as clear information about the house. Everything was in excellent condition and well-stocked. We just needed to add our own groceries.

Watching the sand cranes and deer in the meadow below while sipping our morning coffee and seeing the sun's morning rays hit the rock outcropping across the meadow was a fantastic way to start the day.

We would definitely consider staying at this home again.

Much more than we expected and more than 5 Stars!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week here! My words can't adequately describe the beauty of this amazing home and it's surroundings. It's secluded yet close to everything. There are large windows in every room~ perfect for viewing the abundant wildlife and lovely scenery. There's a wonderful porch and patio for sitting out and enjoying the clean, fresh air. Every evening from the patio we would watch the deer in the meadow, eating vegetation and we observed strutting wild turkey spreading their feathers. The amenities are modern and in excellent condition. There is NO deferred maintenance in this home. Everything the owners state about this home is absolutely true and I can't think of a thing the home needs. The home is beautiful and immaculate and well cared for. Tom and Sue were

extremely courteous and helpful. If I could use only one word to describe this home and property is would be "PERFECT" I highly recommend this property!

Comfortable home base on vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with my brother in law spent 5 nights at Beaver Creek Ranch. The house was true to the pictures and description, and it was well stocked. The bedroom setup was very comfortable. The amount of amenities available exceeded our expectations. We had everything we needed. Tom was an excellent owner from the beginning. He communicated with us from the first day of our inquiry and continued with great communication through our deposit return. The book at the house is fantastic and helped a great deal with figuring out what to see, where to go, and how to get there. The views from the house were great. This is a great house if you want to have some privacy, but also be relatively close to town.
