Come and stay at our Log sided Guest House in the Woods for your vacation. Private Beautiful 3/4 acre "PLake"=(Pond+Lake). Relax, or go on any adventure that includes hiking, fishing, golfing,horseback riding, sight seeing, shopping, theatre or wherever it takes you.

"PLake"=(pond+lake). That's what we call our new addition to the property. We cleaned up our pond and now it is deeper and wider. Beautiful sight and great for a hot day to go on your own private "PLake". We supply some Kayaks, paddleboard, tubes and life jackets for your convenience. These cannot go off the property but you may not want to leave!

We are located just 1 mile off the hwy onto a dead end road. You may feel miles away from all the hustle and bustle but you are just 15 minutes away from the village of Bigfork and Flathead Lake. Take a drive to any of the towns nearby (Kalispell, Columbia Falls,Whitefish) . Adventure into Glacier National Park it's only 40 miles away.

This home has all new furniture, kitchen supplies, bedding and linens. You can sit out on the deck or soak in the hot tub. At night you can sit outside by the fire and roast your marshmallows or hot dogs and look up at the stars. Even more; we have a playhouse that sits up on stilts with stairs going up. Stay the night there with sleeping bags provided for the pull out couch and loft.(sleeps 2) Includes fridge, microwave, heat, and tv/dvd.

This was our home until we built a new one right on the property.(18 acres) The guest house and main house are across from each other with a grass yard and parking in between. This is our guest house(1228 square feet) that has been used by our family and friends. Now we would like to extend the invitation to vacationers like yourself. We have personally used VRBO many times and have enjoyed the adventures along the way.

This is a great get -away for an experience of a Montana vacation. You will most likely see wildlife such as deer, chipmunks, wild turkeys and eagles. The mountains are incredible!

Beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Quite simply, perfection.

Kaleen's cabin was spotless, homey, comfortable and had every possible amenity one could need, in the kitchen especially.

The property and views of the mountain are heavenly. It's so beautiful just right there, it made it hard to leave and go explore.

The plake was such a perk. My friends and I had two days of playing in and around the water there.

Honestly, as far as location and house, we couldn't have expected anything more.

But what made it stand out was how accommodating Kaleen and her husband were. They were simply friendly neighbors. They introduced themselves upon our arrival and told us anything we need, just ask. And when we did, they couldn't have been happier to help. We got loud in the hot tub and had nights of games and laughter. Never did we feel like we were inconveniencing anyone.

It was all we could have hoped for and more. I can't thank you enough!

Our family loved it

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 6 adults and 2 kids. There was plenty of room for all of us, though we had to fight over who got to sleep in the tree house. This was our first vacation rental experience so we were a little nervous. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and made us feel comfortable right away. Even though the main house is a stone's throw away from the guest house we felt like we had the property to ourselves. The house was very well stocked, anything you could need; beach towels to cake pans. The plake was awesome. The kids loved the kayaks and paddle board. The trout were very fun to watch and feed. Since this was our first trip to Montana we wanted to see the sights. The property's location was within an hour of what we wanted to see and do.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a great time! Bob and Kaleen have created such a fun get away in the beautiful mountains of Montana. Their creativity and thoughtfulness make this VRBO a wonderful place to relax and enjoy time with family. Thank you for sharing your cabin in the woods.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven, 2 adults and 5 kids ages 7-17, had a wonderful time at the guest house. Everything is super clean, the views are amazing, and the "plake" is such a bonus that other cabins don't have. The directions to find the place are also spot on, which was an added bonus after driving 2,000 miles. Bob and Kahleen are wonderful! They give you space, but are right there to answer any questions, give helpful tips on local fare, etc. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The visit to Bob & Kayleen's home was fantastic! The house was immaculate and it's clear that they had gone out of their way to make sure any anticipated needs were met. The kitchen was stocked with anything you might need (spices, olive oil, tinfoil, ziplock etc) and after a successful fishing expedition with Bob, our kids were excited for a trout dinner. We LOVED the "plake," the treehouse and the hot tub and enjoyed three days of relaxation on the property. Everyone in our family rated the visit highly and we have wonderful memories. Cannot recommend it enough!

The house was very clean and had everything you could possibly need! We highly recommend staying here and hope to make it back some day!
