Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I grew up in the Bitterroot Valley, south of Missoula, MT on a cattle ranch and was always on the back of a horse. After marrying, I was a mom of 3 children, including a set of twins, all of whom I home-schooled for several years. As a younger woman I trained horses and I've owned to breeding stallions and mares in the past. I've ridden jumping horses, done dressage, and currently do 'natural horsemanship'. As my children grew up I began showing dogs in conformation. I raise and show Shih Tzu and am a Karen Pryor Certified Positive Reinforcement Dog Trainer. I use all postiive methods and teach as well as train. Animals have always been a focal point of my life for as long as I can remember. I love Montana, the outdoors and all that there is to do here. Glacier Park never fails to take my breath away, and tho I've been other places, there's no place like Montana.
Why the Owner Chose Kalispell: I moved to Kalispell in 2003 and after looking at property all over the valley, finally found this piece of land. It is in the farming area of Creston. It has amazing views, is private, yet close to everything there is to do. I absolutely love being next to the tree farms. I can have trees without having to look straight up to see the sun. The home was originally built to be a guest house upstairs above a horse barn, but life circumstances changed those plans, so now it's where I choose to be, and I love it!
The Unique Benefits at this House: This home is built to follow the sun throughout the day and to enjoy all the views and their beauty. It is secluded yet close, has decks, privacy, and a full RV hook-up. There is room for all to play and your pets are welcome. Everything is very clean and I'll provide you with all the information and guidance that I can for a wonderful stay in Montana.
