The Willow House is a 2-story century-old home, situated on a corner lot just 3 blocks west and a few blocks south of downtown Kalispell, Montana. It is named for the landmark weeping willow tree standing in its fenced yard. The house has 3 bedrooms upstairs, the master bedroom with a queen-size bed, the middle size room with a double bed, and the smallest room with a single bed. Downstairs is 1 full bathroom, a 4th bedroom with queen-size log bed, a living room, a TV/reading room, a fully-equipped kitchen, a laundry room, and a half-bathroom. The house has a garage, but the garage is currently used for owner’s storage so is not accessible. The house is heated with a new gas furnace and has an electric 50-gallon water heater. The upstairs bedrooms are cooled by window unit Air Conditioners. The downstairs bedroom has a large fan. The kitchen has refrigerator/freezer, electric stove, Jen-Air indoor grill, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, and dining table for 6. Other kitchen appliances include, Keurig coffee cup/pot maker, hot water kettle, blender, waffle maker, rice cooker, and crock pot. Cupboards have cookware, dishes, and eating utensils for 8+ people. Cook books are in the glass cabinet with the wine glasses. The TV/reading room has a 40-inch flat-screen TV with satellite DirecTV access, and a VCR/DVD player for movies. High-speed wireless internet is provided, along with a wireless laser printer.

In the summer, Kalispell is a base for day trips into nearby Glacier National Park, or to nearby Bigfork Summer Theater or recreation on Flathead Lake, just to name a few options. In the fall, Friday night high school football games are held in the town football stadium just 2 blocks away. In the winter, down-hill skiing can be enjoyed at the Big Mountain Ski Area 15 miles north in Whitefish, or at the Blacktail Mountain Ski Area 27 miles south. At the end of a long day of outdoor recreation, relax in the living room, while you read a good book, play cards or a board game, or watch a video. A small collection of books, games, and videos is provided, but don't forget to bring your own favorites.

About Craig Schiedermayer

Craig & Karen Schiedermayer - graduates of the University of Montana in Missoula, lovers of Glacier Park, Griz Football, and all that western Montana has to offer. Craig spent 28 years working for Boeing in Seattle before retiring and returning to Montana in 2015. Karen is mother of 3 adult children, and former park ranger in Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks.

Craig Schiedermayer purchased this house in 2015

Why Craig Schiedermayer chose Montana

We bought this home initially as a rental for our daughter Katherine who was teaching at nearby Saint Matthew School in Kalispell. It has character, a nice big fenced yard, and of course a magnificent willow tree, for which we named the house. With Kalispell's great location to Glacier Park, Whitefish's Big Mountain Ski Area, and Flathead Lake, we think it makes a great VRBO vacation rental property.

What makes this house unique

This 100-year-old home has a real charm, with its compact but functional design. Craig has had a lot of fun, working to make everything function again and make it very comfortable to stay in. New plush carpeting makes it quiet and comfy to walk barefoot through the house. Refurbishing old doors and adding some new ones, making the wood windows work again, adding lights to closets for added convenience, painting to brighten the place up - all has been and continues to be a fun project.

Family gatherings and easy access!

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, and with several grandchildren it was an easy place to come together and play. Plus easy access around town.

The rooms were great and the kitchen worked very well for our family. All of our needs were met and we would choose this home again.

Thanks Craig, you made the arrangements so easy and hassle free.

Comfortable and Clean!

Perfect little house to explore the Flathead valley from. Very comfortable for myself and my young daughter, she says "I really likes the bedrooms." It had every thing there we needed and beds are perfect for a good nights sleep. Thanks for the great stay!
