Riverfront farmhouse on 30 acres bordering the Stillwater River

Bedrooms 5
Space 3,400 sq. ft.
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 4 - 5 nights


About the property

Farmhouse, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

This 30 acre, private property sits in a combination of a wooded and meadow setting with the Stillwater River 100 yards from the back door. It was set up for the active, outdoor, lifestyle dream. The house itself is over 3800 square feet with a recently added game room of 800 square feet with pool table, fooz ball and a flat screen tv for movies. The house is an all tile main floor with wood stove as well as radiant heating in the floor. The upper floor is all carpeted and all the bedrooms are on the upper floor.

If floating, fishing and swimming are your preference you can stroll down to the river from the house to the Stillwater River on the back of the property. There is a great 2 - 3 hour (depending on water levels) float to an easy take out spot down the road. There are no rapids on this portion of the Stillwater River, it moves at a nice floating pace, ideal for children and fishing. Stop for a picnic on one of the many sandbars or try your luck on the mud sliding bank (you won't miss this, it is a popular feature).

For motorcyclists there is access to State lands and Forest Service roads for miles of riding right off the property.

If mountain biking is more your speed, you can head over the highway and ride onto the Lupfer Loop section of the Whitefish Trail system. There are also three rock climbing areas near by.

Spend the day at Glacier Park and the evening at the Whitefish Farmers Market (tuesday nights on central avenue) and then home to relax in the quiet surroundings of the property.

The property sits 13 miles North of downtown Whitefish. The Stillwater Lake and Bar are 3 miles further North from the property for fishing and jet skiing.

Keywords: Serene, private, horses, horse, riverfront, motorcycles, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, near state land access, pet friendly, great for families with children or a romantic getaway, Glacier National Park, Whitefish, Whitefish Mountain Resort, Whitefish Lake, Tally Lake, Stillwater Lake.

** August 2013 - We have an AT&T cell service booster at the house which we can add your phone number too if you have a smart phone (flip phones do not work with the booster) and are an AT&T customer. This will provide full service in the house. Unfortunately if you use Verizon they recently lost a tower agreement and do not have service anymore at our property. This is very recent and I would call your provider before visiting if cell service is imperative to your visit. We do have a laptop for use at the house but do not have a land line.


We have a 7 night minimum stay required, 5 nights will be considered based on current reserved dates


We ask that you book either for Xmas or New Years or both but there is a 7 day minimum over each holiday so both holidays would require a 14 night stay.

Why David Crow chose Montana

This property had the space, the privacy and proximity to both town, the river, biking and rock climbing that appealed to David. He developed it originally as his main residence before turning it into a retreat.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The Stillwater River floats across the back of the property but is only 200 yards from the house. It is great for floating, the meadows and wooded area are the perfect setting to relax after a day of playing outdoors. The house has an open plan with high ceilings that give a great sense of space and is very comfortable.

Great family vacation spot. Hope to visit again!

  • 4 of 5

The farmhouse was wonderful...plenty of room for 9 people ( ages 17-62). 2 of the bedrooms have a very low ceiling ...perfect for young children or petite young women. The internet was unreliable but the owner took the time to solve the problem. Perfect location ( 10mi outside of Whitefish) and the stream at the back of the house was fabulous. Would be happy to visit again!

Fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a most excellent house, great set up for a bigger group especially with kids. There are some kid-friendly aspects of the house that are pretty neat including a chalkboard tunnel. The walk through the yard to the river is short and a great place to Sol your feet in or take a quick dip.

David, the owner, was always just a phone call away and ready to help if needed!

I would say the only downfall was location and that was only because most of outings planned were past Whitefish to Glacier and further which just added an extra 15 minutes or so to all the driving we were already doing. I would suggest anyone wanting to do more hiking and visiting of Glacier should stay closer to Columbia Falls area to avoid the extra driving. But if your planning on spending a lot of time at the cabin and in Whitefish this is an excellent option for renting!

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We took our entire family for a week long trip to Montana and were so happy we found this place. It's about a 15 minute drive from Whitefish but the serenity makes it totally worth it. The house is beautiful with lots of amenities. David and Bonnie are fantastic to work with and we will definitely be renting from them again when we head back to Whitefish!

What an AMAZING place...

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and two children and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves for the 4th of July holiday in this amazing Farmhouse.

We did something everyday...Glacier NP two days, Zip-Lining at the ski resort, shopping downtown, chartered a fishing boat, and more. This place is close enough to everything but out far enough out that you have your space.

What a great time I had with my family. I will never forget it! Thanks David and Bonnie for everything.

Quiet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A great property with a beautiful open plan living area, excellent kitchen and a wood fire. We used this property as a base to go skiing and it worked very well. Off the beaten track it was a nice place to relax after a long day on the mountain. We were very well looked after by Dave and Bonnie who gave as great directions to get there and communicated with us really well. Thankyou.

Fabulous, anytime of year! Hands down.

  • 5 of 5

I'm a repeat customer to this spot, and absolutely love it. Far enough to feel out of town, but close enough to pop into town for groceries, shopping, etc. It's serene, no immediate neighbors to worry about noise, the property is beautiful, and there is a river just a few steps out the back door. Drop a car off and float your afternoon away; it's a kick. Big house, lots of room, and the kids will love the loft rooms with a connecting door between them. Kids will love the fireman's pole. Even us grown-ups have tried it. ;) Everything is pretty central. Great neighboring trails for hiking, walking, and mt. biking. A week here is not long enough, but I'll take it anytime!
