                      Car: Recommended

                      River Meadow Ranch is situated close to town yet

                      secluded. An elk farm sits just up the road and you

                      can see them from the front deck sometimes.

                      Surrounded on 2 sides by approx. 800 acres of open land with cattle at times and a few horseback riders sometimes.

                      Big Mountain and Blacktail ski resort are seen from the deck. Walk out back, fish and catch pike with rods provided. 360 degree views of mountains from the 2800 sq. ft. full wraparound deck.

                      Short drive to Costco, Wallmart, In Kalispell. 10 min to grocery stores in Whitefish. Best caterer in the valley 10 min. away.

                      Horseback riding close by . Easy access to town via very scenic

                      drive or scenic drive. Close to quiet lake rarely used by tourists with restrooms and camping sites. Horses all around. Watch the eagle across the river on top of the pines. Play horse shoes.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: Purchased the land in 2008. We live in Maryland but have been vacationing there for years. Spent a lot of time driving through the northwest years ago. We restored the cabin from the ground up at the other end of the ranch and started renting it out. Things worked out well as far as renting it and vacationing there ourselfs and would drive by the spot the new home sits on and was amazed at the beautiful views and instead of putting a bench there to sit on and look out ,thought we would build something a little more comfortable there so we could enjoy it and others could as well. It made it easier, having a friend and caretaker in the area who is also an excellent cabinet maker to help with it. It also would be great for large groups or weddings or commercial shoots having both places. We have had weddings at the cabin and people were always looking for other places for guests. I have travelled all over the country for years and the northwest is my favorite. People scenery and mindset. I have tried to make the rental experience like renting from your brother, the nice one. and it has worked out well. It also helped having a friend who is also the care taker and an excellent custom cabinet maker and contractor living 1/4 mile up the road. Definatlly The Last Best Place

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The one thing that sets this apart is the view and deck. When I was building the deck I may have gotten a little carried away. An extra foot here, extra foot there. It ended up to be a 2800 sq. ft. full wrap around and the views are amazing.
