Amazing house in perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

Bed N Bale was the best VRBO we have ever stayed at. It was meticulously designed, furnished, and outfitted with everything needed from kitchen utensils to beach towels and everything in between. The location was perfect just 10 mins outside the city of Whitefish, but with the full feel of the country. Linda and Dave were friendly and responsive but not intrusive which added the right touch of Montana charm. The on property animals (Highland cattle, chickens, and even a local deer family) added to the experience as well, without any issues with noise. An added bonus was that the welcoming owners were able to accommodate us last minute even though they were getting ready for their own travels. We will definitely stay here in the future whether it be with family, other couples, or for my wife an all-girls getaway with friends

Peaceful, immaculate, beautiful, restful, and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Linda and Dave for sharing your beautiful Bed n Bale with us. You prepared for us like honored guests and then treated us as friends. We loved every minute of our visit. We hiked all day, each day in Glacier and found it so comfortable and peaceful to return each evening. We used the porch every morning for breakfast and games:) and even one evening for steaks on the grill. Linda literally thinks of everything! The place couldn’t be better stocked! We all hope to return one day and stay closer to the bed n bale!!

Best. Vacation. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Bed n Bale for one week with five kids, ages 4-13 and our dog. At the end of the week, none of us wanted to leave.

The house…

The house has everything you need. Really all you need to bring are your clothes and food. Linda has literally thought of everything. There was plenty of room for all of us. Everyone had their own space and privacy.

The property…

The place is perfect for families. The kids were able run and play, feed the cows and chickens, turkeys and even the deer. It is private and peaceful, but you are literally minutes from everything you need. There is Wi-Fi but honestly, none of us used it all that much. It was nice to just unplug and relax.

The owners…

Dave and Linda are amazing. They provide you with everything you need and if you are missing anything or if something isn’t working, just let them know and they will fix it right away.

In general, it really was the best vacation we have ever had. Montana is breathtaking and Whitefish is such a cool town. Busy, but not crazy busy. Cool shopping, everything you need. Beach right downtown. You can do a lot or not much at all – doesn’t matter. Just go. You won’t be disappointed.

We will be back to the Bed n Bale next year and hopefully many years to come.

Cheryl, Jay, (many) kids and Zoe

Perfect Family Getaway

Everyone from the Baileys to the cows, chickens, and turkeys were most welcoming of our extended clan gathering. Comfortable home, great location, and an experience we'd defintely recommend to others.
