|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
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.

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
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.
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.
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!
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.
We just wanted a lazy week around a private pool with our family and that is what we got!
Warm welcome, clean house, plenty of room and we lucked out with the weather made for an unforgettable family holidays.
We will be back!
We were so happy with our stay! We are Canadian and often visit northern Montana for our May long weekend. This vacation rental in my opinion beat out the others we have stayed at because the hot tub, pool and sauna provided hours of entertainment and relaxation. Even though it rained all weekend, we were never bored. Close proximity to shopping and golf. Also, the house was so unique and charming... better than the photos have captured. Such a spacious property made is a peaceful place to escape the city noise. The house was very clean! We had 9 adults (7 singles, one couple) and there was more than enough sleeping space. They even provided a pack-n-play for our infant daughter to sleep in. Not to mention the homemade cookies Linda left hit the spot. This place is a winner!
We really enjoyed this home. It's beautiful and welcoming. There were plenty of beds for everyone and the hot tub and sauna were a nice touch. The views were breath taking.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home over the Christmas holiday. The home itself is beautiful and has lots of room for large family groups - including beds for 15 people (plus futons!) and 3 separate living / family rooms - one on each of 3 levels. Add in 3 1/2 baths, plus a large kitchen and dining area....wonderful accommodations. We enjoyed the sauna and hot tub, especially after a day of skiing at Whitefish. The owners are very friendly and helpful without being intrusive or overbearing. Lots of very nice touches - home baked cookies on arrivals, candy canes on the beds, etc. Kitchen is very well stocked as well. We were staying over the Christmas holiday and there were so many lovely decorations - it made it feel like a real home! We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again!!
Golf trip to MT lots of room for the boys in this home, close to good quality golf courses at great rates. Pool was shut down due to late season but ho tub was a welcome choice after a long day. Would recommend this place to anyone and if make this an annual golf destination over thanksgiving we will be staying here.
