Guestbook comments from the owner

Just sending a quick email to thank you again for opening your home to myself and my wedding guests. They really enjoyed their stay and the house worked out perfectly. It made the week much more fun that we were able to stay together.

Just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Odal Haus was a fantastic getaway for our family of 6. We just needed a place to hang our hat and it had all the things we needed. Room to move, relax, watch the squirrels playing in front of our oblivious dog and a quiet neighborhood. There was a great back deck and wonderful yard. Will definitively put this on our "come back to" list. Very easy to coordinate and book and everyone was very responsive to our questions. Thank you for a great time.

Warmly welcomed for a good stay

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for us. We came for the Rebecca Farms 3 day event, and were greeted by a bottle of wine ("Dark Horse, perfect!) and chocolate. House was easy to find, perfect sleeping set-up, and owners were very responsive when we had a question. Great grocery story 3 minutes drive that even had organic food, which was sweet for us Nor California folk. Also made a good base for our few forays into the wilderness areas. Kitchen could use a kettle, but other than that well enough stocked for basic cooking needs (if you're a "chef", bring the extras). And also more food items than we've had in other places, which was highly appreciated. We'll be back!

Ski trip vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Odal Haus! We went skiing in Whitefish, about a 30 minute drive, most days and had the best time. We were not at the house that often but when we were we found everything comfortable and had what we needed! What a cold and snowy week-great ski conditions:)Thanks so much for a great stay!

Summer in the Flathead Valley is also wonderful. We are close to lakes, parks, hiking and many other activities. Claudia and Regina

Montana Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a terrific location for our family vacation in Aug. 13'. There is easy access to Flathhed Lake, Glacier National Park, Big Mountain, the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area and many other attractions. The home and accomodations were very clean and comfortable...our family felt right at home! We used the grill in the back to barbeque, found grocier stores, shops and restaurants very conveniently located. Furthermore, we found everthing exactly as the owner said we would on our arrival. The money spent for this vacation get away was worth every cent. I would recommend the Odal Haus to anyone visiting Montana.

Odal House for the Holidays

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I, and our families (a total of ten), stayed at Odal House for five nights over the Christmas holiday. Your wonderful home exceeded our expectations! We ended up hosting our local family for the Christmas festivities at the house and the house and it's lay-out was just perfect for a mixture of ages: 7-83! It was nice to have a place for the six kids to congregate (downstairs) while the adults could have some "adult conversation" upstairs! The kitchen was adequately stocked (we prepared a prime rib dinner with all the fixings!) and the entire house had a very clean and homey feel. I can only speak for one bed, but it was pure comfort. Plenty of room for four adults and six kids and that was in the middle of winter when we didn't spend time outdoors. Would love to come back in the summer and hang out in the back yard. We had absolutely no complaints about anything. I LOVED the fact that you had a Christmas tree for us!!! I really wasn't anticipating a Christmas with decorations :( and that was such a welcome surprise. Thank you for making 2012 a memorable Christmas at the Odal House! We would definitely recommend your accommodations to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review of Odal Haus. It is a great family gathering place. Please do come back for a summer visit. The back yard is a wonderful place to enjoy a BBQ, enjoy moring coffee on the deck or hang out in the fully fenced private patio in the back yard. Claudia and Regina

Odal House

  • 5 of 5

While we had a few early hitches, our stay turned out wonderfully. Odal House is located in a family oriented neighborhood and we enjoyed walking through the area and looking at the charming houses, many of which are on the Historic Places list. The house is reasonably close to downtown Kalispell, but for those who don't like walking, I would recommend driving; but then you will miss seeing the neighborhoods! This is a home that is ideal for a group because downstairs are two bedrooms and a "family room" with a bar and tv/dvd so that there is a nice separation for those who are on a different wake/sleep schedule. This area of Montana is just beautiful and besides going to Glacier and Flat Head Lake, there are many other things to do. I would definitely recommend a visit to Big Fork and also to Whitefish, both of which have some good eating places as well as quaint shops. In Kalispell we particularly liked Hops and North Bay Grill - but be sure to visit Norms old fashioned soda shop! Would definitely recommend Odal House to pretty much anyone!
