About Kristi Hatfield

My Husband and I both grew up in the Flathead Valley, and moved back after our college education to raise a family in Columbia Falls.

We enjoy getting out and exploring this beautiful place we live every chance we get.

Kristi Hatfield purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Kristi Hatfield chose Columbia Falls

We purchased this property to provide visitors to the Flathead a quiet and peaceful place to stay that is close to nature and centrally located to the airport, train station and Glacier Park. Columbia Falls is a friendly community and the Gateway to Glacier.

What makes this bungalow unique

We are outdoor enthusiasts and happy to share our favorite places to visit and explore- whether it be bird watching, fishing or hiking in the Park and nearby National Forest trails.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the perfect place to celebrate Valentine's Day and a long weekend. It was so cozy and a wonderful little retreat. Much better than a condo like you said! Many thanks again for your warm hospitality and recommendations!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Susan! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I hope you were able to enjoy the first day Glacier National Park opened the Going-to-the Sun road. Have a safe trip home and please stay with us on your next visit to the Flathead Valley. Kristi & Shayne

Extremely nice little property

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and dogs came to see the Glacier area. The property is fenced and perfect for dogs. The interior of the house is in tip top condition and really nice. We however had a disaster of a vacation and only stayed one night (no fault of the house). My husband injured himself, we had a false alert on his mothers health, and the wild fires made the area very smokey and the Going-to-the-Sun Road was closed because of fires.

Nice cabin, fees are not; too many cats around

  • 3 of 5

This cabin is cute. Close to a park by the river and has everything you need. However, the area is polluted with cats and creates an odor, even in the cabin. Kristi was concerned and tried to accommodate us by spraying down the house but the cats returned. The cleaning fee does not cover much. There is an assumption that one has to take bedding off, wash towels and clear dishwasher with a condo or vrbo rental. However, this rental requires that you mop, vacuum and clean all floors; clean the tub (very deep, had to get on hands and knees to clean) , toilet and sink, and all kitchen appliances. The cleaning fee should include all of that.

Near-perfect for Glacier and the Flathead valley.

  • 4 of 5

The bungalow was perfect for what we needed - a place close to West Glacier, with easy access to Whitefish and Kalispell. The home was cozy and well furnished. The neighborhood it's located in kept it from getting a 5th star, but we'd stay here again.

It was all that was promised.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Glacier Bungalow on Rivers Edge was lovely. The setting was peaceful and the accommodations clean and comfortable. Being next to the park was very nice and worth the walk. Walking distance to the Main Street was also a great benefit. Saw 4 large dear one morning outside the house. Short drive to Glacier National Park. All in all a great visit.
