About jodene kelly (Jody)

We have been married 44 years and we chose to raise our four kids in the great state of Montana. We now get to share this life adventure with our eight grand children with two new ones this year! Tom and our sons and grandsons enjoy hunting. I enjoy watching deer, birds, elk but most of all a moose if I'm lucky. We also love rafting and fishing. We our out going and loving meeting all the people that stay at our lodge.

jodene kelly (Jody) purchased this house in 2010

Why jodene kelly (Jody) chose Glacier Park

We choose this location because it was a project! And we love projects! We completely remodeled the house. It also is great location with the golf course and ski across the street. The wooded lot is lovely! Columbia Falls is our home town! We feel its the best place in the world to raise a family and also vacation! The large yard has space for the kids to get out of the car and run around! The neighborhood is quiet. You can watch the golfers from the front deck and the deer in the back yard.

What makes this house unique

In the afternoon the deer walk out of the woods and graze on the grass in the back yard. You can watch them easily from the back bedrooms or the patio between the house and garage. It's a great place for a family reunion! Lots of living space to spread out and enjoy each others company. We have plenty of parking and could also accommodate an RV, (with out hook ups.) Across the street cross country skiing trails are located on the golf course. It also has a shuttle to Whitefish Mountain.

Made for the perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an outstanding time staying here. The location was perfect for the West side entrance of the park and the house was extremely comfortable. We found the house to be well looked after and there were many extras that made our stay feel great. For example, they had bear spray available for us to carry during our hikes! That's a huge plus because we couldn't bring it on our flight and would have had to pay for it there AND you hope you don't have to use it so we would have to leave it behind. Owners and property manager were very responsive. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone visiting in the area. It was the perfect place the relax after spending the days hiking.

Extra note: Back yard and outdoor space in general is beautiful too. We enjoyed evenings in the Adirondack chairs in the backyard around the fire pit.

Lovely house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Tamarack Lodge. Since we wore ourselves out during the day, the house was a comfortable and welcome relief from hiking up and down the mountains in Glacier, biking in Whitefish, and boating to Wild Horse Island on Flathead Lake. Needless to say the jacuzzi tub was enjoyable and therapeutic for our sore muscles and the master bed was SO comfortable. Most of the activities that we planned for our trip were a very short distance from the house. We loved seeing the mama doe and her two fawns grazing in the large backyard. Jody and Tom are very attentive to detail in the house and offered us wonderful service. I would recommend this house to to friends or anyone visiting this beautiful area of the country.

Perfect location for Glacier!

  • 5 of 5

Just want to say that this place had absolutely everything we needed for a 7 person stay. three of the people were our grandkids and they had TONS of room to play!

The kitchen is huge and well equipped, so is the living room! Bedrooms are perfect. We stayed in the master bedroom and it had tons of room and privacy!

One of the best things is how close it is to the West Glacier entrance! A golf course is across the street and stores are close. Will definitely book again!

The owners are wonderful to work with also- gave great directions and made it all so easy!

Amazing Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 people who visited Glacier National Park over Labor day weekend. I was tasked to find an affordable, yet large enough place to accommodate all of us. Fortunately, I stumbled upon this listing and am so glad that I did. The house is huge with a very spacious living room. It was a perfect home away from home, and each one of us had a very memorable experience. Well within the vicinity of West Glacier, the location provides perfect blend of solitude and easy access. The owner was super helpful in providing all the directions to the house.

I highly recommend renting this property out, and am sure to revisit this place again.

Glacier Area Gathering

  • 5 of 5

I was given the task of finding an affordable, comfortable home for a gathering of five firefighters on a trip to the Glacier National Park area. It had to have enough beds and bedrooms plus a large living area so we could relax after a long day of hiking or enjoying the area. We couldn't have been more pleased with my choice. There is a lot to do in the area. We went on a zip line one day. Went whitewater rafting on another. Plus all there is to do at GNP. The home has everything you need for cooking a good meal and nice grocery store close by. Jody was easy to work with and a lot of help with her knowledge of the area. We would definitely recommend this property and if I come back with my family I will be looking to rent it again.

Exceptional experience

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed this spacious home. It stayed cool during the day even though it was above average temps when we where there. It had everything we needed & Jody was a joy to work with. We will stay there again if we are in the area.

Our location is such a plus! Meadow Lake Golf and Ski Resort is just across the street. The Meadow Lake Golf Course is one of Montana’s finest! It has 18 holes of the greatest golfing in the Rocky Mountains. At Par 72, with breathtaking views of the mountains and 7 holes bordering streams and lakes, Meadow Lake is a championship golf course rated by Golf Digest as one of the best 6 courses to play in Montana. Golf Magazine says it is a “must play” course and has rated it as a 4 ½ Star Course.

We are centrally located to go anywhere in the Flathead Valley! We are only 10 minutes from Whitefish, Montana and a few more to the top of the mountain to ski! Cross country skiing is just across the street at the golf course. Glacier Park is a scenic, 20 minute drive away. Columbia Falls may be small but it hosts a lot of fine restaurants parks and antique shops. During the summer months an amazing Farmers Market is the highlight of the community for gathering and socializing with outstanding vendors and entertainment. Big Sky Water Park is just minutes away.

The lovely Flathead Valley is surrounded by mountains and it is an area with several towns for shopping and sight seeing. Our rental is located only twenty minutes from Kalispell which is the largest city in the valley. We have so many local artists, galleries, jewelry designers, antique dealers and an abundance of other interesting creative things to search out and find.

Our house is on Tamarack Lane and is used for mountain biking! If you haven't visited this area you are really missing out of an adventure of a life time. Whitewater rafting, zip line tours, Alpine Slide, Aerial Adventure Park, Spider Monkey Mountain, Walk in the Tree Tops, Scenic lift rides, Summit Nature Center, Wagon rides, the Amazing Fun Center in Coram, The House of Mystery, Glacier High line, sleigh rides, dog sledding, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, star gazing offered by Glacier Park, northern lights dancing in the sky, of course hiking in Glacier Park, and fishing, canoeing, kayaking in the many stunning lakes. All this and so much more!

If you would like to golf it is just a walk across the street. But when you return to the lodge you are located on a quiet acre lot with trees all around where you can spend time relaxing on the porch watching the golfers and maybe collecing a few balls too.

Very comfortable, quiet, private and cozy.

We won't let you down!
