Property description

In a quiet neighborhood in the northeast corner of Columbia Falls you will be central to all the activities the Flathead County has to offer. At the head of the North Fork Road you are only a few minutes from The North Fork River, Flathead National Forest and Glacier National Park.
Enjoy a very private, forested environment 150yds up the hill from the Flathead River which supports abundant wildlife. Expect visits by wild animals such as white tail deer, turkeys, many different birds, we've even had raccoons on the deck and a moose ate our Bing cherry tree! The top story of the house is street level where you enter from the west and north then opens up to 2nd story living to the east and the south where you leave the neighborhood behind. Many windows in the home let the outside in with lots of natural light. Opening the glass French doors from the main living area onto the 2nd story log railed deck that wraps around the east and south sides of the house expands the living space to the outdoors. You'll feel as though you live in a tree house. The lower level of the house daylights out to the east and south with glass French doors leading from the downstairs family room to a patio covered by the 2nd story deck. The moonlight, the outdoor lighting and many trees and shrubs cast shadows that play beautifully throughout the house and property at night. When the snow settles on the tree bows and the deck railing you are wrapped in winter wonderland. The knotty hickory cabinetry and knotty pine trim with the log accents add to the warmth of this in-floor radiant heated home. An indoor sauna will help you sink into comfort after a hard day at play.
With an open floor plan and a well stocked kitchen we hope to make cooking/baking and entertaining as convenient and easy as possible. There will be many herbs growing in the planters/flower beds when in season, for your use. We will also stock herbs and spices, flour, sugar and any other basic staples we can think of for your convenience. Bathrooms will also have some emergency toiletry supplies.

Area Activities:
-Glacier National Park (15 min), Wilderness, Forest Service (5 min) and State Lands (over 3 million acres) for: Hiking, Hunting, Fishing, Snowmobiling, Rock Climbing, Skiing, Wildlife Viewing, Horseback Riding, Huckleberry Picking. Snowmobiling is as close as 5 min. to Flathead National Forests Canyon Creek parking/trail head. Go a few more miles and access any kind of terrain you desire. Hunting is even closer.

-Many Beautiful Lakes and Rivers: Fishing, Rafting, Kayaking, Sailing, Jet Skiing, Swimming, Water Skiing, Para-sailing, Snorkeling/Diving, Wind-Surfing, Boating. Flathead Lake (45 min) is the largest natural fresh water lake west of the Mississippi. At almost 30 miles long it is a spectacular beauty with a view of the Rocky Mountains alongside so you can book a tour on one of the large tour boats or rent your own watercraft for a fantastic day on the water. Surrounded by mountains and forest, Whitefish Lake and the public beaches are only 20 min. from the house and 2 min. from downtown Whitefish.

-Whitefish Mountain (formerly Big Mountain) (30 min) and Blacktail Mountain (60+ min) for: Skiing, Snowboarding, X-country Skiing, Sledding, Mountain Biking, and much more! Ride mountain top to mountain top on Whitefish Mountains Zip Line and pick Huckleberries, use the 20 miles of Mountain Biking Trails in the summer or Ski the best Moguls or Powder or Trails in the Northwest in the winter.

-Meadow Lake Golf Course (5 min) is 18 holes of 4 star golfing amongst streams, lakes and mountains. A par 72 course only 5 minutes from the house. The valley sports many beautiful championship golf courses such as: Big Mountain Golf Club, Buffalo Hill Golf Club or Village Greens in Kalispell (25 min), Play golf on Flathead Lake at Bigforks Eagle Bend Golf Club (30 min) or Polson Bay Golf Course on the south end of the Flathead Lake (60+ min) Take that opportunity to drive there and back along both sides of Flathead Lake. Whitefish Lake Golf Club in Whitefish (15 min) ... or surrounded by nature at Glacier Golf in West Glacier (20 min), the entrance to Glacier National Park, and along the Middle Fork of the Flathead River will surely have a Bald Eagle soaring over and deer browsing and perhaps even an elk or a bear, wolf or coyote wander through.

-Cultural Activities
Play Houses: Whitefish Theater Co. and the Bigfork Summer Playhouse
Numerous Art Fairs and Flee Markets

-Other Activities:
Theme Parks (Water Slides (2 min), Miniature Golf, Fun Zone)
Athletic Clubs (close to house)
Tennis Courts (2 min)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My name is Valerie , I was born and raised here and my husbands name is Denny and he has lived here most of his life. Our children are gone now and we would like to go spend some of our semi-retirement years with our horses and other critters on some small acreage we have out of town ... in a smaller house. We want to keep this house and we could use extra retirement income so vacation rental is an excellent option for us. We hope you enjoy this home as much as we have.

Why the Owner Chose Columbia Falls:
We love the beauty and majesty of this country, it has been a constant reminder to us of Gods Creation and His Love for Us. This home has been a Blessing for us as we will try to make it a Blessing for you.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is in a neighborhood on the edge of town, within only a minute of downtown Columbia Falls and all of its amenities and yet central and close to all of the activities in the Flathead Valley. On this special little property we are surrounded by the trees and mountains we love. As soon as you enter the property, the neighborhood seems to disappear as you are wrapped in nature and a very relaxing setting. You can occasionally hear the train whistle 1/4 mile away when outside or when the windows or doors are open.
