              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: My husband and I have lived in the beautiful Flathead Valley for almost 30 years. We have had several business's here..excavation, helicopters, raising elk and buffalo, and most recently Montana's premiere backcountry cat skiing operation GREAT NORTHERN POWDER GUIDES, with it's base camp only 10 minutes from the property! Jay was a professional skier for many years and our whole family loves to show the world our powder thru our winter business, Great Northern Powder Guides backcountry cat skiing! I am passionate about my horses and making sure all of our guests, whether skiing or lodging have the BEST time ever!!

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              This is a gorgeous piece of Montana. Very private, not another house in site. It has incredible views, wonderful hiking, and the pond that Jay built is the showpiece. Sitting on the deck watching the glorious sunset over the water and you'll know exactly why we choose this piece many years ago. We love the peace, the quiet, the animals.

              The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
              My horses live on this property as well as our Great Northern Powder Guides mascot...Sway the bobcat! don't worry, she won't be living with you! But if you or your family would like a REAL Montana experience...we can provide it! I teach Natural Horsemanship and would be happy to provide lessons and can customize a package for your kids or yourself. We love families and are honored to share our life here.
