About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

Relax by the pool and take in the great view of mountains and the surrounding farm land. We have finished the sauna house which includes a full bathroom and changing area. The hot tub is brand new this spring. Centrally located to Whitefish, Bigfork, Kalispell and Glacier Park, and many other attractions around the Flathead Valley. The comfortable accommodation this house provides is ample for large groups or small families. All bedrooms have new high quality Egyptian cotton sheets and plush bedding. The kitchen is equipped with cookware, utensils, modern appliances and basic cooking needs. The home was built with hand hewn logs and beautiful rough sawn cedar flooring. Rooms are attractively decorated with new paint and furnishings. *Special services (grocery shopping, experienced hiking information etc.) upon request, and for additional cost.

The house and pool area and privately situated from surrounding neighbors. On our property there is a garage with a small apartment which we currently live in. Our business is run from a shop on the same property on the outer edge. The traffic to the business has slowed dramatically so you will not notice much happening there. If you have further question on the property and its surrounding please don't hesitate to ask.

About Linda Walsten

We have lived in the Flahead Valley for over 40 years and have raised children and owned a businesses in the area. Hiking, skiing and enjoying Glacier Park and Flathead Lake are just some of the reasons we love this valley. We hike Glacier Park frequently and have many books, maps and pictures to share and help plan your Glacier experience. We hope, in your visit to our home, you will experience some of these amazing adventures.

Linda Walsten purchased this house in 1986

Why Linda Walsten chose Montana

The home is centrally located to the things we love to do. We are so blessed to be close to this impressive area. We couldn't have asked for a better setting to raise a family and enjoy life.

What makes this house unique

Recently we put in an in ground heat pool that many have enjoyed including our children and grandchildren. We have just finished our pool house, Fall 2012,which includes a sauna and changing room. The property is on 20 acres and surrounded by fields. There is privacy and views all around the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful getaway with our boys. We enjoyed the cozy fire place and awesome new sauna building outside. The hot tub was also nice, many options for warming up after being out in the cold weather. Centrally located between two ski resorts and many other winter actives! Highy recommended for anyone to come and enjoy the Flathead area in the winter!

Great place for our group of six. Good location close to Glacier and very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six stayed three night and loved the space and the clear skies. We spent two days at Glacier and one day around town. Very welcoming home with all the space and amenities we needed. It was somewhat cool, but the boys used the pool and the hot tub. The most amazing sunsets!

Wonderful log house near Kalispell!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed in this wonderful log home near Kalispell. Roomy, beautiful, comfortable. The weather was too cold for the pool but we made good use of the hot tub and sauna! One bedroom is on the main floor, good for people who don't do stairs. Two TV rooms, one in the upstairs loft and one down in the basement living area. Be aware, no TV in main floor living room, but we liked it that way. Country place but minutes to Kalispell. Great hosts, even fresh cookies when we checked in. We would definitely stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

We came down for a family weekend. The house was perfect for us, lots of room.

Linda and Craig were awesome. We had a small issue with the hottub, but Craig had it fixed in no time. The welcome cookies were really good. Great location for the area. just a short drive to anywhere you want to go. Wish we had come later in the year so we could have used the pool.

Would recommend to anyone looking in the area.

Thanks Linda and Craig!!

Very comfortable for all ages

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house as 3 generations from 2months to 70+ years and really enjoyed it. The hot tub was great and there was a ton of sleeping space. The loft beds in the upstairs bedrooms are definitely for older kids (maybe ages 5+) but we had no shortage of space for all our families. Only a few minute drive to Kalispell and an easy 45min to whitefish mountain. We usually don't love rentals with owners onsite but Craig and Linda were attentive and helpful without ever being invasive. We had a problem with frozen water lines in the pool house (partly due to our poor family communication and partly to unusually cold temps) and Craig spent the better part of our stay working to get it corrected without ever interrupting our plans. This is a great rental. I do think the photos make it look more dated than it is. We were pleasantly surprised by how lovely this home was.
