Columbia Falls house description

Treat yourself to forested seclusion and privacy while enjoying a convenient distance to all the Flathead Valley area has to offer.

The covered front porch offers a great place to have morning coffee and read the paper. On the large private back deck you may nap, relax or just sit and enjoy each other’s company on the comfortable cushioned lawn furniture as birds feed and fly near the feeders & evergreens.

Indoors you will find a quiet, comfortable & nurturing space. Full of tall windows and high ceilings you will enjoy the abundant amount of natural lighting available in the daytime and, if desired, a great variety of dimmable mood-enhancing lighting throughout the evening hours.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: My husband and I were married right here in Columbia Falls 35+ years ago and have enjoyed living in the Flathead Valley ever since. We have helped build ourselves four different homes throughout our life together and have raised a family of four. We are now enjoying some quieter time...just the two of us. We are both entrepreneurs so we thought we would try another new adventure! We traveled to another state recently and enjoyed staying at a private vacation rental home with some of our grown children and grandchildren. We really enjoyed it and thought it certainly would be nice to offer the same services to someone visiting our area. It really made a big difference for us instead of us all staying in separate motel rooms.

                      Why the Owner Chose Columbia Falls:

It really made a big difference for us instead of us all staying in separate motel rooms.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our guests have often commented on how Riverside Retreat is located in such a wonderful central location to Glacier Park, Big Mountain, Flathed Lake, and many other attractions located throughout the region.
