Charming and Gracious Base of Operations

  • 5 of 5

We are a week removed from a wonderful stay at Small Talk! This charming and comfortable home provided us with the quiet and peaceful rejuvenation we needed to fuel our exploration of Flathead Lake and its artsy towns as well as the magnificent Glacier National Park. There were three of us plus a wee dog, but the house could easily have slept six. (Ten if there are couples)

Lovingly appointed with western treasures, and blessed with views-the home is a destination in itself. Yet so much lies beyond the porches to explore! The home's location is remote enough to give you peace and quiet yet very close to everything you need. Restaurants, brew pubs and recreation were readily available-and many were dog friendly too. As far as restaurants go, we had our best meals at Tamarack brewing company in Lakeside (get the fish tacos!) as well as the De Soto Grill in Kalispell. In terms of recreation, we hiked till we were sore, swam till we were pruned, fished till the cooler was full of whitefish, and kayaked till we ran out of time. In a week, we never ran out of things to do. One thing you must see is Glacier National Park. Epic may not be strong enough to describe it. I think it unseated Yosemite and Acadia as my favorite National Parks. My son just looked over my shoulder at what I am doing and said, "I miss it there!" We do. Great vacation. Great rental.

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Owners greeted our family with enthusiasm and friendliness as we arrived. We managed to get lost on our way there but Sue came to our rescue and showed us the way to the home. Jay was kind enough to allow us to store our "stow-away" cargo box in his garage during our stay and even helped us take it off and put it back on which was greatly appreciated. The home has everything you would need for a wonderful get away vacation. This is a must book just to see the inside of this cottage. It is like a trip back in time. Beautiful antiques everywhere. Great craftsmanship! Words cannot describe how amazing this place is. The property is beautiful and wildlife frequents right in front of all the windows! We saw deer every morning, evening and sometimes afternoons. Our kids got a kick out of them being so close. Thank you, Sue & Jay, for everything! We thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

Perfect location to drive to Glacier for the day. Plenty of room for the family to relax. Beautiful view, quiet and very comfortable. We loved sitting on the porch watching the wildlife! There is a little grocery store and several restaurants nearby in Lakeside, as well as public swimming.

Better than we imagined!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a such a restful stay at the Jay and Sue's Montana Cottage. Jay was a great help with recommending fantastic places to experience at Glacier Nat'l. Park. We enjoyed just staying at the cottage and watching the deer and view of the lake. We had a wonderful time.... Thank you Jay and Sue.

A wonderful Montana retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family was gathering at Flathead Lake for a family event and our family cabin could not accommodate more than a couple families. I rented this cottage for my husband and I, and our three young adults. It was perfect for our needs. The views are beautiful as described and we loved sitting on the front porch looking out at the lake. Every morning, we woke up to mule deer and turkeys wandering in the yard. The house was well equipped and decorated, and the beds very comfortable.

The owners were very attentive in making sure we had what we needed, and very open to our using the cottage for a lunch gathering for the rest of the extended family. It was an easy day trip from this home to Glacier Park, and was a reasonable drive to the airport in Kalispell, and events we had in Polson. We went to West Shore State Park one afternoon to hike, and were surprised at how many hiking trails there were there, including ones along the lake. There is also a boat launch in the park.

My husband and I prefer to not always be on line, but our phone service has always been poor in Montana so we did have a hard time searching for restaurants and other travel information without Internet at the cottage. Towards the end of our stay, though, we did discover that Lakeside Town Center which is just west of the grocery store in Lakeside (4 to 5 miles away) has two wonderful restaurants--Farmhouse for Breakfast and Lunch, and Seven for Lunch and Dinner. That building has free Internet throughout, so if we returned, we know that is a great option. The owners had also said that they have Internet should we have an immediate need. We had no difficulty getting Emails, just could not load Websites on our phone service.

I would highly recommend this rental.
