Wonderful Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Craig and Susanne have a wonderful guest house with all the amenities we required for our Christmas ski vacation and more.

We had lots of room for our university aged children to hang out and we all enjoyed the vistas. It is in an excellent location with easy access to Kalispell and Whitefish.

Can't wait to come back again next year!

We stayed here with our 3 children- so much easier and more comfortable than a hotel. Clean, quiet, and inviting. We will definitely try to stay again on our next visit to Kalispell.

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away with this guest house. It was so welcoming and accommodating, just like being at home! The views were to die for and the house had everything we needed for our 4 day stay. It was a great base for our explorations in Montana. Definitely a 5 star!

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with a special needs child who needs a comfortable, safe bedroom any time we stay away from home. The guest house was exactly what we needed! Quiet, private and beautifully appointed with everything we needed for our three-day stay in Montana. The big open kitchen/dining/living area was great for keeping an eye on the kids, and the mattress in the master bedroom was so comfortable we overslept every morning. Our oldest son loved roaming the big open fields, climbing trees and observing the night sky with his telescope from the back deck. Owner Craig built this house for his family, it's obvious from the careful details and beautiful custom finishes that it was a labor of love. It was a perfect home base for our Montana adventures, and we will certainly stay again if we ever make it back to Kalispell!
