Property description

The Stillwater House has everything you want for your Montana vacation!

The Stillwater House is located in open fields on the bank of the Stillwater River. To the North, West and East are expansive vistas of fields and mountains as far as the eye can see. The Southern exposure is wooded and allows scenic views of the meandering river.

You will thoroughly enjoy this central location in the Flathead Valley... Although the Stillwater House is only 10 minutes from downtown Whitefish and Kalispell shopping, it has a secluded feeling as though it is in a world of it's own.

The Stillwater House property includes 70 acres of open fields and wooded river frontage. You will enjoy the large green lawn and the secluded hot-tub hidden beneath the river bank. The private dock allowing full access and use of the river is literally a stone's throw from the back deck.

Swim, fish and raft the river. Play horse-shoes in the shade of the spruce and fir trees. Explore the 1/2 mile of wooded river frontage, being sure to keep an eye out for deer, wild turkeys, beavers and even bald eagles. Bring your bikes (or rent, in town) for excellent mountain biking within riding distance of the house. Enjoy late evening fires and s'mores around the fire-pit in the back deck.

The Stillwater House is a contemporary home designed to maximize the resident's enjoyment of the beautiful surrounding environment. This house was designed with many picture windows to allow full enjoyment of the Montana experience, even while indoors! Whether it is the deer crossing the open field, or the sunrise/sunset over the mountains. You won't miss a thing!

First Floor: Kitchen, dinning, and living room... This open floor plan invites complete involvement of the whole group in the activities. The floorplan was designed to encourage togetherness and group interaction. The Stillwater House is perfect for summer entertaining! Even while cooking and barbequeing, no one will feel left out! The kitchen is fully stocked and includes two refrigerators, a gas stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee grinder and Bunn coffee maker, toaster, pots and pans, dishes, and every utensil you'll need. The kitchen is even stocked with basic spices and condiments, as well as paper towels. If you'd like, arrangements can be made with the owner to purchase any food items prior to your arrival. The first floor also offers a 42 inch TV with satellite service and a computer with internet access, also a Bang & Olufsen stereo system! The living room opens up through 4 sliding glass doors to the south facing deck overlooking the river. Also on the first floor is a half bath for your convenience.

Second Floor: Up the contemporary staircase are 4 bedrooms, two full baths, a common room, and a theater room.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, large dresser, and a recliner. This room has 10' picture windows that look out over the river to the South and Big Mountain to the North. Adjoining the master bedroom is a full bathroom that includes a water closet, shower and separate garden tub. The master bath also has a small balcony. Linens and towels are provided.

The second bedroom sleeps two on a full size bed.

The third and fourth bedrooms each have a loft twin bed. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th bedrooms surround a 'common room'. The common room has a comfortable futon bed that can sleep one (or 2 children).

Adjoining the common room is a second full bath.

The theater room includes a large, comfortable sectional couch, 60 inch Sony TV, satellite, surround sound, and DVD player. You can keep the shades drawn for the complete theater experience or open them up for a full view of Big Mountain. We provide a quality queen sized air mattress that can sleep two in the theater room.

A stay in the Stillwater House will prove, it is the Last Best Place!

Most summer visitors to the Whitefish area enjoy the mountains, lakes, golfing, shopping, and of course, Glacier National Park. All make for a wonderful vacation! But, why stay at the Stillwater House? Simple... You don't have to go anywhere else to have an amazing time! We have it all right here! Hot tub by the river, fish, swim, even take a boat ride from our private dock. Play horse shoes, stroll a half mile of private, wooded river frontage. You can visit on the back deck while you BBQ and roast marshmallows over the fire pit overlooking the river. Bring your shotgun and plenty of shells to shoot skeet; even bring your fireworks! We have a spacious lawn of nearly an acre ready for you to play football, throw your Frisbee, or just send the kids out for some fresh air! Love to paintball? We have a great wooded area by the river! You can even cycle to a nearby network of mountain bike trails. And when you run out of steam, relax and watch a movie in the theater room. The Stillwater House... Where memories are made!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Although he is a native of California, as a result of many visits to grandma and grandpa's house on the family farm, Brant dreamed of rearing his children on the land where the Stillwater House now sits. Ten years ago, the dream became possible... and plans for the house were laid. During that time, Brant met, courted and married Tonya, a Texas native. It did not take long for the two to truly appreciate the beauty and blessings of Montana. Brant and Tonya are quick to share that it is a great pleasure raising 4 boys in such a wonderful place. 'We are thrilled to share our little piece of Montana with you and want to be available to meet your needs during your stay. We want to make your stay the best vacation ever!' Brant and Tonya will be available upon request to answer questions or offer assistance.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
The Stillwater House property has been in the family since the original homestead was filed late in the 19th Century.
