West Glacier house description

Newer one level home on the Flathead River with river frontage and views of the peaks of Glacier National Park. Walk along the sheltered sand and rock beaches of this Scenic Corridor for as far as the eye can see. Great fishing. Catch rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, bull trout, whitefish, etc., right from the property edge. Large kitchen, breakfast bar, and dining table overlooking river make eating in a pleasure. A barbecue is provided. Relax on the large cedar deck while enjoying the beauty and therapeutic sounds of the river. The privacy and scenery leave you in awe. There are many private sitting areas along this riverfront property where you can wander off to enjoy some extra solitude. One of the assets of this unique property is where the house is situated. There are no homes right next to you, as is usually the case along prime riverfront locations. You can relax on the deck without the next door neighbor knowing! Woods surrounding the home afford privacy as it sits in the middle of three acres close to the river. Even though you are in a wooded area, the landscape allows plenty of sun to bask in should that be your desire. The dead-end location assures no drive-by traffic. If you want your vacation time to be a get-a-way, this is the place for you! Beginning the 2015 season this riverfront home will only be available for up to two persons.

A Bald eagle's nest can be viewed with a scope right from the comfort of the great room - watch the baby eagles feed and learn to fly. Golden and bald eagles, white whistling swans, pileated woodpeckers, blue heron, sandhill cranes and assorted other waterfowl and deer also frequent this area.

The bedroom is furnished with a king size Sealy Posturepedic mattress and exquisite Montana handmade burled log furniture. The bath is across from the bedroom and there is a hall door that closes off from the great room so you have your own private suite; sleep or rest quietly while your other half watches a movie or cooks. The spacious great room has two leather swivel recliners to kick back in and watch the news or a movie on a 46' flat screen TV. The bedroom has a ceiling fan. The great room has two. The bath features a 6' long tubs with handicap set-up. Your vacation won't feel crowded in this home located on private wooded acreage on a dead end road. Plenty of parking for large vehicles or boats. The home is in the quaint town of Hungry Horse (population approx. 900) which has a large supermarket, two gas station/stores, restaurants, churches, antique shops, and a tavern, but your vacation home is in a secluded, quiet spectacular location on the river away from it all. Glacier Park is only 10 minutes from your doorstep. Glacier Park International Airport is 15 minutes from the home.

The Bob Marshall Wilderness, Hungry Horse Reservoir, Hungry Horse Dam are just minutes away by vehicle. Lion Lake is a wonderful warm swimming lake for children and adults to enjoy, which is only four minutes from the home. Take guided river float trips along the river adjoining Glacier Park. Books are provided in the home to help you find hiking or activities during your stay. There are sports rental facilities nearby to rent equipment. Enjoy Montana at it's finest!
