Property description

Very charming farmhouse plus log cabin/guest house on five acres. Grassy meadow surrounds the buildings. Orchard with old trees, sweet walking neighborhood, five minute walk from fly fishing in the river. Drive to Glacier Park and be home in 15 minutes after a day of exploring. Famous pies baked on request. Vintage bike collection allows you to go for a ride on the tree-lined road. Most guests like to nap on the deck on the chaise lounge or read a book in the hammock in the orchard. Five minute drive to small lakes for swimming. Columbia Falls is one mile away and has the best antique-ing in the flathead valley. Seven miles to the west is Whitefish, if you're looking for an upscale dining experience and lovely city beach. The sun stays up until very late in the summers...the days stretch on and on in the nicest way!

Keywords: Lots of breathing room, 5 acres about a mile out of town, old growth trees, walking neighborhood, near the river, 15 miles from Glacier Park. 'Professional decorator's home....charming touches. Vintage bike collection, movie collection, wi-fi, cable, phone! Bonus sun room on the main house sleeps 2 more if you like!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Native Montana Gal, worked in California for 32 years on movies and as professional interior designer. Owned a coffee shop in Seattle in the 80's. Love traveling and hosting people....love hospitality. And seeing to all the details that make a stay really enjoyable. The house is decorated in a friendly and comfortable and fresh way. You'll see!

Why the Owner Chose Columbia Falls:
I love the property. There is something magical about the place....everyone says so! When I leave the city and come here I feel my shoulders drop and I begin to relax. There is a lot of fresh air here and usually, the first few days, people are sleepy in a good way! I've spent 5 years restoring the house to its original state...polished wood floors, wavy old glass in windows. Nice convection oven for baking and heated tile floor in renovated bathroom.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
I love the quiet and way the air smells from the fir trees and the birch. I love to walk on the tree lined road. It is a walking neighborhood and you'll find lots of friendly people on your walks. When the weather is right we have small bon fires in the orchard, run up the road to Lion Lake for a quick swim on a hot day. Or Echo Lake or Whitefish Lake or Dickie Lake. There's a lot of water around these parts! 7 miles to Whitefish or 20 minutes to Bigfork for upscale dining. Really great thrift stores and antiques stores in our town, Columbia Falls, a mile away. Having the log cabin allows guests to spread out and take a private moment on the trip! We also mow a crop circle in the meadow of chest-high grass...you can recline there, and stare up at the Big Sky. It's a great place to practice doing nothing!
