About Brenda Stewart

I am a native of Montana. Over the years I've watched the valley change into a recreational paradise. As I got older I realized what wonderful and unique opportunities this area had to offer others. I decided to provide people with the ability to stay in a comfortable home with all amenities. Having this vacation rental has provided me a fantastic opportunity to meet wonderful people from all over and develop new and lasting friendships.

Brenda Stewart purchased this house in 2000

It has been a great privelege for our family to be your first guests. Your home is beautiful, clean, and we thoroughly enjoyed using it as our base for exploring the entire area- such easy access to all areas! Our four girls Hannah, Olivia, Jessica and Tessa loved the hot tub. In addition, we loved sitting on your back pebble deck admiring the woods, your beautiful garden and the occassional deer! The girls will certainly miss the squirel who time after time threw down pine cones at them, much to their amusement. Many thanks for your kind hospitality and the use of your beautiful home.

Terrific Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed here from July 1-July 5. Brenda was an excellent host! She met us at the front door, gave us a tour of the house, and briefed us on establishments in the local area which we might need. The house is excellently appointed with plenty of games, books, and things to keep your mind occupied when not vegging out. We used the hot tub after it cooled down in the evening and it was a treat. We were there for a family reunion and hosted an afternoon cookout for 2 dozen people. Everyone enjoyed themselves and remarked on what a wonderful place it was. We had a medical emergency which required hospitalization for one of us and there was a chance we might have to stay an extra day or two. Brenda offered to find us a place to rent if we had to extend our time (there were others renting right behind us so we couldn't stay there) and eased our peace of mind immensely. Everything turned out OK and we were able to travel on time. The only criticism I can offer is that the air conditioning units (portable) were insufficient to comfortably cool the house down in the mid-to-upper 90s weather we experienced all week. The master bedroom on the 2nd floor was uninhabitable from mid-morning to sunset even though we had two units working all the time. Brenda stated she is planning on installing better air conditioning in the coming months, and to be fair, the temperatures were out of the ordinary even for the summer months. Other than that, we would not hesitate to revisit this most enjoyable venue and stay at Brenda's house.

Truly Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Tamarack Tranquility for Christmas this year, and it was the BEST way to spend the holiday! The house is amazing and very comfortable (and VERY clean!) - the kitchen is fully stocked, the ping pong table was a hit with everyone and the hot tub was a fanstic way to round out the day after snowboarding at Big Mountain. The Stewarts' are great hosts and do everything to make your stay wonderful. I HIGHLY recommend Tamarck Tranquility and would love to return in any season.

Excellent Rental

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with our friends at this rental for a few nights .It was neat and clean and the property is set in the woods with a nice jacuzzi and pond in the backyard. We watched deer grazing through the windows.The kids loved walking around on the property.

The host was very friendly and accommodating ! The kitchen was well equipped.

One thing I want to point out is that this a 3 bedroom and not a 4 bedroom. Upstairs is a big room which has 3 beds. Downstairs are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with a bunk bed.

Great house(s), great location, great owner

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome! There is the possibility of adding a second house and a cabin located in the same footprint which we took full advantage of for our 25 person family reunion that included folks from 3 years to 68 years old. The beautifully appointed main house with plenty of space and everything we could think of needing was only exceeded by the beauty of the wooded setting and 2 onsite ponds. There was fuzzball, pin pong, volleyball court, stair stepper, board games and every cooking utensil, spice, or food prep item we could ever ask for. All needed services located closely nearby and owner just the right mix of helpful but not at all bothersome, in fact we all enjoyed their infrequent visits. Despite being so close to the absolutely gorgeous Glacier National Park, we also spent a lot of time enjoying local restaurants, zip lines, horseback riding, boating, local distillery and the Huckleberry pies and shakes. Damn they are good. The biking, hiking and views of mountains and lakes, and rivers, and waterfalls inside the park was awe inspiring and should not be missed. Montana is beautiful and we are already planning a return trip.

Fantastic property in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Nestled just north of Columbia Falls and a 10 minute drive east of Whitefish, this property has a fantastic location. 10 of us stayed here for New Years (late 20's/early 30's). With lots of beds, it fit our mix of couples and singles, and had plenty of flexibility for sleeping arrangements. That said, there is not much privacy/sound control as it is very open concept through the main home. Put your early-to-bed people in the cabin and they will thank you for it later.

After you're done skiing at Big Mountain (skiwhitefish dot com) just 20 minutes away, there's no need to leave this property. There's a ping pong table and a hot tub and lots of games in the cupboards. We were well entertained, had our privacy, and had a blast hanging out in the (warm) garage, finding out who the best ping pong player was of the group. Sadly, it wasn't me.

The only word of caution would be to budget a little extra for cleaning, as the owner is meticulous and the cleaning fee doesn't account for the high standards. You will receive the property spotless: you will also pay to ensure it remains that way. In particular, we were dinged for a filter replacement to the hot tub - something I have never been charged with before through all of my stays (even with large parties). Factor it into the budget, but don't let it dissuade you from staying here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. We try our best to provide a warm, fun and well-kept home. We encourage our guests to have a great time and take advantage of all that we have to offer. We try to make sure that each new guest is greeted with the same level of high standards that we are so proud of. With that said, there are very few occasions when extra attention is required to maintain those standards, like when pets are allowed into the house and on the furniture. Or when the hot tub is used heavily and there may have been adult beverages involved. In these types of cases, there is extra work and materials required to maintaining the quality of the property. We are grateful that you and your friends had a wonderful time and hope you understand the time and effort it takes to provide, what we believe, is an outstanding vacation home. Hope to see you all again soon. Brenda Stewart

Great house with a graceous hostess

  • 5 of 5

We'd a big family reunion and stayed at this property in July 2016. The house was perfect for our group that had kids to grand parents. The garage is well furnished not only with cots but also recreational activities (Ping pong table, board games) - the teenagers in our group had a blast.

The kitchen was well stocked and had all kind of pots/pans for us to prepare large meals. The large bath tub outside was great to relax after an active day in the Glacier NP.

The best part was the our hostess who was very responsive. When our guest count increased more than expected, she graceusly provided an extra cottage and portable toilet.

Overall, it was the best stay for our vacation and I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area.
