About Susanna Eaton

I'm a retired interior designer. My husband and I moved to Kalispell in 2008 to join other family members who have been here for years. I'm a 3rd generation Montanan and love this state. I also love sharing this beautiful part of the world with the people who come to stay at Huckleberry Nest.

Susanna Eaton purchased this condo in 2013

Why Susanna Eaton chose Montana

Ptarmigan Village is a year-round vacation resort with charming homes and condos spread over 52 acres on Big Mountain. Even though we live nearby in Kalispell we enjoy all the amenities it provides and love to stay here often when our condo is available. Winter skiing is nearby at the top of the mountain.

What makes this condo unique

Even though it is not a large place I like the layout and the open space the upstairs loft provides. Condo's in the trees are often dark but ours has full afternoon sun and 3 skylights add to the ambiance. A cozy little Morso wood stove provides warmth and charm. Free firewood is included. What attracted me most to this unit was the large deck built out into the trees. We often get visits from the mule deer that populate the mountain!

A Very Nice Place to Stay While in The Glacier National Park Area

  • 5 of 5

We used the unit as a base from which to see the area, with emphasis on the park. We were there from Aug 31 through Sept 5. The unit was well located just a couple of miles from Whitefish and a short (30 minute) drive to the West Glacier entry to the park. It is just minutes from the Whitefish Mountain Resort ski area.

The unit is very well equipped. Although there were many interesting places to eat in Whitefish, we had breakfast and dinner at the unit. The unit is well equipped and we had no problems preparing ourselves meals that we enjoyed. (Grocery shopping at the local Safeway is better if you use one of the loyalty cards we found in the silverware drawer - saved about 30% on groceries.)

A good location and a comfortable and quiet place to stay in Whitefish.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time staying at Ptarmigan Village. The condo was very clean, cozy, and contained everything we needed for our trip to Glacier National Park and nightly visits to Whitefish. The temperature in the condo was perfectly fine even when the outside temperature was hot. I highly recommend this condo.

Well kept, comfortable "nest!"

  • 4 of 5

Lovely little condo. - VERY clean and cozy with a comfortable bed and cute, efficient, little kitchen. Though Ptarmigan is an older property, Huckleberry Nest is convenient and the owner very nice.

Well appointed, great location!

  • 4 of 5

This condo was perfect for our three-night stay in Whitefish. The unit is tidy, clean, and nicely appointed, and the complex is just a 10 minute drive from Whitefish and 30 minutes from Glacier National Park. The real selling point is the private lake access/dock offered by the condo's about a 5 minute drive from the complex. It was amazing and had only one other person there - nice quiet solitude compared to the jam-packed zoo of the city beach!

The only downside was the window setup in the bedroom - it was quite warm while we were there, and the skylight would not open because of a missing crank. The other window had clear tape across it as if to keep it shut, but it was so warm we pulled it off in order to open the window (sorry!). I know the owner encourages feedback so I am sure she will address this as soon as she sees this :)

Overall, a great value and a wonderful introduction to Whitefish - we will surely be back!!
