Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Your Hostess is a great lover of the wilderness, its animals, its weather, its preservation. I am a retired speech therapist of the Blackfoot Nation. I learned to skii and love the snow and adventures in Montana, 1970s. I'm an avid hiker, cross-country skiier, snowshoer, traveler. The trees, animals, mountains, rivers are my guardian. I have lived in 17 countries teaching English as a Second Language, Speech Therapy. I have a daughter who is horse crazy, a whitewater raft guide, and an artist of wire and water color. I hope travelers who wish to experience the wonders of nature, take adventures of self discovery, will make an inquiry with me.

Why the Owner Chose Essex:
This rustic home is nestled between the forests of the Great Bear Wilderness and Glacier Park. My community is called Pinnacle, 6 miles from the village of Essex. MyGlacierHouse lies 20 miles south of W. Glacier, 36 miles south and west of E. Glacier, perfect for the adventurer. Easy access to dining and spirits of all flavors, on the East or West. Crystal clear sky viewing-milkyway! Solar yard lights only.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is a two story log house, warm wood heat of winters and cool mountain breezes of summers. The house is naturally air conditioned by the chilly nights of the summer which last all thru the 90 degrees of the summer day. Wild strawberries, june berries and infamous huckleberry picking is available. Stars,planets and milkyway viewing; dazzling moonlit nights. Wildlife come to visit frequently viewed through 4 southern exposure windows, with caution and respect due to them by all visitors/occupants. The hostess lives on the property in the apartment above the barn. Your privacy is greatly respected and undisturbed.
