Private Homes house description

Only minutes away, yet a world apart! Private, quiet, peaceful, and yet only minutes to Whitefish, shopping, and airport.

This new (2011) custom 3 bedroom home enjoys a comfortable and open floor plan with spectacular mountain and pastoral views from nearly every room. Rustic charm, casual elegance and high-end finishes in a setting that is truly unique.

Sitting on 13 private acres, surrounded by thousands of acres of open land, it offers views of lush meadows, rock cliffs, and forested mountains.

Interiors of rich wood and native stone reflect Montana’s classic heritage and display the welcoming romantic style of the American West. Richly stained knotty alder interior doors, baseboards and window trim are used throughout the home. Custom reclaimed barn-wood cabinetry and hand finished oak floors create a rustic elegance that is warm and comfortable. The wood and stone blend perfectly with the outdoors that is brought inside through spacious windows.

In winter relax by the stone fireplace savoring the peace and quiet and watch the sun rise on the rock cliffs. In warmer months, open the doors to your private patio to enjoy the sunshine and fresh mountain air with the people you love.

Beaver Creek Ranch is an incredibly beautiful 160 acres with only five residences on a private road each sitting on between 13 and 30 acres and surrounded by public land, insuring privacy and tranquility, yet close to the town of Whitefish. The “Ranch” is surrounded by thousands of acres of public forest lands, with miles of trails leading to lakes, meadows and view points. It is an ideal location for hiking, walking, mountain bike riding, or just enjoying the peace and quiet that Montana is known for. Wildlife abounds. Frequent visitors to the lush meadows and creek include whitetail deer, elk, moose, black bear, bald eagles, golden eagles, osprey, heron, geese, ducks, sandhill cranes and more. Beaver Creek Ranch is more than just a place to stay, it is a rare opportunity to experience the best Montana has to offer.

The 3 bedroom custom 2,150 sq ft home presents an exquisitely detailed design of casual elegance and lodge-like warmth to provide a comfortable yet refined standard of living. Life enriched by the uncompromising quality of Beaver Creek Ranch is Montana’s lifestyle at its best.

You may find a vacation home rental that is less expensive, but you will not find one that offers more of what people come to Montana to experience. Create a truly memorable experience for you and your family, come to Beaver Creek Ranch.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We (Tom and Sue) purchased the property in Whitefish in 1991. Before buying our land here we traveled throughout the Rocky Mountains looking for the 'perfect place': great outdoor activities, close to 'wild' areas and National Parks, exceptional natural beauty, abundant wildlife, friendly community with conveniences close by, and easy access from an airport. We think that this is truly one of the 'last best places', and we feel very privilged to own and be stewards of this little piece of paradise. We have lived on Beaver Creek Ranch since 1994, and we completed building our second home on the ranch in 2011. We are very pleased with how it turned out, and look forward to sharing it with friends and guests. We are amazed each day at the natural beauty of our 'back yard', and thoroughly enjoy viewing the wildlife that frequents the area. Each of our past guests, whether family, friends or VRBO guests, have commented that this is one of the most memorable vacations they have ever experienced. We take great pleasure in sharing our home and the experiences it offers with others who love the outdoors, and enjoy the peace, quiet and tranquility that Beaver Creek Ranch provides. Tom is a semi-retired real estate broker and was a director with one of the world's premier five-star hospitality companies. We strive to exceed all of our guest expectations and provide a truly exceptional vacation experience. We spend our free time hiking, biking, golfing, floating on rivers, and riding our horses in the mountains. We would be happy to share our local knowledge with you to insure your vacation is memorable.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  Being on Beaver Creek Ranch you feel as if you are a world apart, yet, you are just a few short minutes to the town of Whitefish, and easy acess (20 minutes) to Kalispell airport. We can drive to Whitefish or Costco center with virtually no traffic or stop signs, but you are private and quiet when you get home. The private valley we sit in is unlike anything else in the area. When people who have lived in Flathead Valley for years first come here they always comment that they had no idea there was a place like this so close to town. It is truly unique, and irreplaceable.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We enjoy having our first cup of coffee in the morning sitting on the patio or by the Great Room windows and watching the sun rise on the high rock cliffs across the meadow and just sit and listen to the quiet. We try to take walks every day, as we enjoy the miles of trails we have right from our back door. As much as we enjoy all of the activites to be found in Whitefish and Glacier Park, we particularly enjoy coming home to Beaver Creek Ranch, as it is a world apart, spectacular in it's beauty, and exceptionally quiet and peaceful.
