About Fred Goldsmith

Purchased the land in 2008.

We live in Maryland but have been vacationing there for years.

Spent a lot of time driving through the northwest

years ago. We restored the cabin from the ground up at the

other end of the ranch and started renting it out. Things worked

out well as far as renting it and vacationing there ourselfs and would drive by the spot the new

home sits on and was amazed at the beautiful views and instead of putting a bench there to sit on and look out ,thought we would

build something a little more comfortable there so we could enjoy it and others could as well. It made it easier, having a friend and caretaker

in the area who is also an excellent cabinet maker to help with it.

It also would be great for large groups or weddings or

commercial shoots having both places. We have had weddings at the cabin and people were always looking for other places

for guests.

I have travelled all over the country for years and

the northwest is my favorite. People scenery and mindset.

I have tried to make the rental experience like renting from your brother,

the nice one. and it has worked out well. It also helped having

a friend who is also the care taker and an excellent custom

cabinet maker and contractor living 1/4 mile up the road.

Definatlly The Last Best Place

Fred Goldsmith purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

The one thing that sets this apart is the view and deck. When I

was building the deck I may have gotten a little carried away.

An extra foot here, extra foot there. It ended up to be a

2800 sq. ft. full wrap around and the views are amazing.

Wildlife Photo Op.

  • 5 of 5

What a great home and in a great location. Fred and Kirk are a pleasure to work with, the house was everything they said . Really enjoyed all the wildlife you could see every day (elk-deer) and great scenery. Would stay here again when in the area.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

My family celebrated our parents 50th wedding anniversary here and it could not have worked out better. My parents wanted to have all of their children and grandparents under one roof; and we were able to do that here. We traveled to Glacier NP almost every day. The property location was perfect for us, outside of town, and close enough to get supplies as needed. We spent much of our time enjoying an amazing deck and ever changing vistas. We cooked on the grill many nights. We explored the dairy later in the visit than we should have. Fred and Kirk are pros and a joy to work with. Reserving, payment and check-out were hassle free. We would love to return to this location over and over. We loved that the next guests were using the property to get married.

The best week of my life!

  • 5 of 5

Montana is a magical place and Fred’s property made it all the more special. I got married on this property and the whole experience was amazing and better than I imagined. My close friends and family rented both properties for an entire week in July. It exceeded my expectations! The kitchen was fully stocked ready for cooking and entertaining right down to a juicer and coffee grinder. The house layout is perfect for a large group and additional guests. We had 11 in each house (he has another house within walking distance) and never felt crowded. We also hosted the rehearsal dinner and the deck accommodated all of us. The pictures do not show how massive the deck is. The deck is amazing, what a wonderful place to relax with amazing views. It was in a great location, only 15 minutes away from Costco and yet we felt a world away from the city. Just walking down the road and around the property was wonderfully peaceful with wildlife. But still so close to Whitefish Lake, Whitefish Mountain, Glacier Park and a hundred other great hiking and outdoor activities. There was a nice fire pit, grass area, BBQ grill and did I mention the great deck... Kirk the property manager was extremely helpful when it came to getting ready for our big day, he treated me like family and not like a “renter”. It was great place to just stay and enjoy. My husband and I are counting the days until we return.

Perfection! Montana at it's best.

  • 5 of 5

We got married at River Meadow Ranch and could not have asked for a more beautiful setting or more comfortable accommodations. We rented both the cabin and river house for the week. Our family and friends had plenty of space to gather and also share private moments. The deck on the river house is incredible, the layout of the house itself is very functional with lots of open space to gather, as well as spacious bedrooms for privacy. The river made a gorgeous backdrop for our ceremony, and the swallows that gracefully flew above it added to the scene. Many of our guests enjoyed fishing in the calm water, viewing the elk from the front deck, and watching the big sky at night. Both the owner and caretaker could not have been more helpful. My expectations were far exceeded. We did not want to leave! THANK YOU!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family, 9 of us in all, stayed for 5 days in this gorgeous house. It was so spacious, beautiful and very clean. When we walked in the front door it had that new house smell. It was better then described. There was plenty of room for all of us. My middle son, his wife and our three granddaughters along with our youngest son, occupied the downstairs. My husband, myself and our oldest son were upstairs. What was especially nice was that everyone had there own bathroom, the girls and our youngest son had to share, but that's what happens when you are outranked. My three young granddaughters particularly loved going down to the little river behind the house to try their hand at fishing. They did not catch anything but enjoyed the experience. They also enjoyed the grass in the back, the baby calves across the street, and the deer we would see at night across the fields. Even though the neighbors were within sight, being at the house and sitting on the deck made you feel like you were in your own little world. It was so peaceful. My favorite time of the day was the mornings, just sitting with my coffee on that beautiful wrap around deck. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need. Even though the dinning room table was beautiful and large enough for everyone, we enjoyed eating most of our meals out on the deck and we used the grill a lot. The house is a short drive into town but it was a nice drive.

The owner and property manager were wonderful. Kirk the property manager came by several times to see how things were. He was very friendly and great to talk with. Fred, the owner, called to see if everything was fine and he was very friendly also.

We had a wonderful time. I have rented from Home Away for a number of years and this was one of the best houses we have every stayed in. I would recommend it highly. My family and I would loved to come back next time we are in Montana. Thank you very much.

River Meadow Ranch is situated close to town yet

secluded. An elk farm sits just up the road and you

can see them from the front deck sometimes.

Surrounded on 2 sides by approx. 800 acres of open land with cattle at times and a few horseback riders sometimes.

Big Mountain and Blacktail ski resort are seen from the deck. Walk out back, fish and catch pike with rods provided. 360 degree views of mountains from the 2800 sq. ft. full wraparound deck.

Short drive to Costco, Wallmart, In Kalispell. 10 min to grocery stores in Whitefish. Best caterer in the valley 10 min. away.

Horseback riding close by . Easy access to town via very scenic

drive or scenic drive. Close to quiet lake rarely used by tourists with restrooms and camping sites. Horses all around. Watch the eagle across the river on top of the pines. Play horse shoes.
