Enjoy a retreat to nature in our privately owned and managed 2-Bedroom Barn. Plan a romantic getaway or honeymoon, a couples’ adventure with friends, or family trip to Glacier National Park.

Our 2nd story loft features exceptionally high standards for convenience including luxurious Egyptian cotton sheeting, spa robes, a whirlpool Jacuzzi tub, and memory-foam, pillowtop mattresses. Furnishings are stylish yet comfortable. Hardwood floors, white marble tile,butcher block countertops and exposed beams create a warm ambiance while the space retains a light and airy atmosphere with plenty of natural light flooding in through large windows.

The open floor plan allows for sweeping views of breathtaking mountains, the surrounding farm land, and a nearby water preserve. The two acre- property is nestled on the corner next to an 800 acre, third-generation family farm. The Red Barn is adjacent to our home and is located off a quiet country road. From the large private deck you can enjoy excellent wildlife and bird viewing including large herds of whitetail and mule deer grazing, wild turkeys, geese, and songbirds. Swans and bald eagles frequent the area as well. The farm is also home to an occasional moose, elk, bear, fox, coyote, and mountain lion. The deck is also the best view of the beautiful mountain waterfall in addition to views of the entire Swan Mountain Range and the Badrock Canyon leading to Glacier National Park.

While tucked away next to the farm at the base of the mountain, our location has convenient, easy access to everything the Flathead Valley has to offer. Driving times to local hot spots make this the perfect lodging option:

• 15 minutes to Glacier National Park

• 20 minutes to the shopping and dining of Kalispell

•10 minutes to Columbia Falls, gateway to Glacier National Park

• 35 minutes to the top of Whitefish Mountain Resort

• 20 minutes to the airport

After a day of hiking and adventure clean up with a full-sized washer and dryer, plush linens, and an over-sized rain shower head. Settle in with a 37” HD flat-screen TV with cable or watch a movie on the DVD player while sitting next to the cozy fireplace.

About Alyson Dorr

Casey and I were both born and raised in Northwest Montana. In fact, I was raised right on the adjacent family farm. After going to college and living in Oregon, we moved home to raise our children in this idyllic setting. After 14 years as a high school English teacher I now manage the property, work as an interior designer and enjoy being mom. Casey works for a technology company . We love to ski, snowshoe, kayak, bike, hike, camp, swim, boat, fish, and of course, take in the views- particularly from our back yard. Our girls are delightful and the best adventure yet. They are definitely farm girls. We also own two lovable labs named Cedar and CoCo. According to the reviews, the dog steals the show. We also raise chickens and a huge garden. We keep our pigs on the farm so you won't have to smell them!

Alyson Dorr purchased this barn in 2006

Why Alyson Dorr chose Glacier Park

We think the Flathead is the ideal place to live and work, and while we have both traveled extensively across the globe, no wanderlust makes us question calling this our home. As we travel, we look for unique places to stay - we believe the places and people we've met on our adventures are as important as the places we've seen. We've work hard to put that thought into the details of the Red Barn - so that your stay with us will be a part of your visit to Montana, not just a place you've slept.

We built this property, including the guest house -we invite you to be our guest. We offer to you our wonderful retreat and the inside scoop on what to do and where to go in the Flathead. We look forward to hearing from you.

What makes this barn unique

Having been raised on the family farm, we built the Red Barn to incorporate all the things we love about rural Montana farm life while also maintaining luxury standards we expect when we travel. Beyond the amenities of our property, what really makes the Red Barn a unique stay is the connection to nature you will feel while you are here. In the spring and early summer you can literally hear the water plummeting from the mountain. As a frequent visitor to Glacier Park, I have continue to see more wildlife off the back deck, than on the trails in the Park. At the same time, the property has all the modern conveniences, is impeccably clean and is perfectly situated as a base camp for year-round adventures in the Flathead Valley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

One of the most beautiful, relaxing places in the West. The Red Barn is a 1,000 fully appointed apartment with two spacious bedrooms, large bathroom with W+D, gourmet kitchen, dining room, living room with big screen TV (that we hardly watched), every window has a view of something gorgeous with a huge deck overlooking acres of fields full of wildlife and a ridge that swoops down to the entrance of Glacier National Park. Close to Kalispell, Columbia Falls, White Fish with lakes, trams to the top of Big Mountain (do the luge) and 15 minutes from the West entrance of Glacier National Park. We can't wait to return. Thanks to Casey and Alyson for allowing us and friends Dave & Sue to be the first official guest. And they are Corban alums, even better yet!.

Crazy beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The perfect vacation! We went in March so we could see Glacier in the winter and it did not disappoint! The view from the Red Barn was gorgeous and only a short drive to GNP, shopping and good eats. The Barn was decorated so cute and everything was so cozy. We want to come back and plan to stay here again because of how amazing this last week was. Thank you for everything Alyson & family!!!!

A beautiful, clean, cozy get away.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved staying in The Red Barn! It is beautifully designed and fully equipped with cozy blanket (if you go in the winter like we did, you will need them!) The property sits about a mile from the side of a beautiful mountain. As soon as we pulled up, I was in awe! If you are looking to visit Montana and be close to Glacier Park and some other cute towns nearby, this is the perfect place to stay! The hosts were easy to get in touch with and gave us some killer food recommendations as well. We LOVE the Red Barn!

Fantastic suite

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights over New Years with our three teen boys. The Red Barn is a well equipped suite with plenty of little extras in the kitchen, good beds, laundry and covered parking. It was perfect for our family ski holiday-a lovely space in a peaceful setting (even in a winter storm!)

The best vacation rental you will ever find. Trust me!

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing I can say that has not already been said and everything that has been said about the Red Barn is true. It is a dream vacation rental and one you will struggle to find anywhere else. It has everything you need for an extended stay - there is nothing that Alyson has not thought of. The house is clean, warm and cosy. The equipment, products, cleaning supplies and towels are more than enough for you to feel like you are in your own home. The walk in closets for your bags are a dream and so spacious. Loved having a washer dryer available. The bed in the main room is a dream and you really wont want to get up every morning. We loved knowing we had such an amazing place to come back to after a long day of touring. The Red Barn is highly recommended!

We travel quite a bit and stay in a variety of accommodations. The Red Barn is up in the top 1 percent. It is in an absolutely stunning location--farm land and gorgeous mountains. The area is peaceful--we enjoyed walking around. The Red Barn itself is quiet and easy to settle into. We were three adults and found the accommodations spacious--easily comfortable for the three of us. Great shower, great beds, wonderful linen and towels. The place was spotless. And as has been mentioned by many---it has just about everything you could want in the kitchen, bath or living room. As serious early morning coffee drinkers our one very small suggestion would be to have filters available for the large coffee maker (there are filters for the small coffee maker). The Dorrs were very nice and we knew that if we had any questions they would be available. But for us--the fact they just let us enjoy ourselves by ourselves was perfect. Their two children, two dogs, two cats and chickens were a delight for us. None were bothersome, but our small contact with them was delightful. The Red Barn is approximately 15-20 easy min from Glacier. We loved Glacier, but were very happy to leave its crowded public areas behind, and go back to our Red Barn. We changed our plans at the last second on our last day there just to be able to enjoy the beautiful Barn and it's surroundings. We hated to leave.
