We are located about 35 minutes from Glacier National Park. In 20 minutes you can be at Flathead Lake, which is the largest fresh water lake west of the Mississippi River. It has abundent opportuities for fishing, boating and swimming. There are many lakes and rivers all within a 30 minute drive. Kalispell and Whitefish are very art oriented with many galleries and a couple of museums. There are many nightclubs that bring in top name bands and entertainers from all over the country. It is not unusual to see celebrities in local bars and restruants, as many have second homes here in the valley.
About the owner: I am an Independent Contractor and have lived on this property for 35 years. I moved here from cornfields of Indiana and Ohio. Lisa and I first saw the Flathead Valley on our vacation and decided to quit our jobs in South Bend, Indiana, move here without knowing anyone. It was a good move and have never regretted it. We have two children, Nawnie and Griffin who have spent time out of valley and now are living back here.
Why the Owner Chose Kalispell: I feel fortunate that purchased this property back in 1980, even though it seemed expensive at the time, to buy in today's market might be prohibitive. The beauty of it, is that it is close to town and still very private. There is a K through eighth grade school just down the road from us, which both kids went to. It was just land with no building on it when we purchased, but fortunately, I was pretty handy with a hammer and was able to build my own home over the years when I wasn't working my day job. We lived in a flat roof daylight basement for the first 7 years, saving money to continue building up. It was a lot of incovieniences but worth it in the end. I divided the property a few years back and built another house just up the hill from the first one. This is the house we live in now and my daughter occupies the original house.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: I belive the most appealing aspect of this property is that it is very private and yet just eight minutes from the Hutton Ranch complex, where are many resturants and establishments such as Home Depot, Target, Costco, Walmart and many others too numerous to list. The studio sits above my shop that I just finished in 2013. Everything is new and very functional. No worries of any shop noise as I will not be using it when the studio is occupied. I want my guests to have a great Montana expierance and I will do what I can to accomadate that. We have flower gardens that we plant every spring which adds to the beauty. We do have fence them, as I have found nothing that keeps the deer from using it as a smorgasbord. We have lots of wildlife here with deer and an occasional elk passing through. Bald eagles are not uncommon and many different species of birds including a family of turkeys.
