Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Gary and Jayne are both natives to the beautiful Flathead Valley. We raised our two grown children in Columbia Falls and have been married 36 yrs. The hospitality business is not foreign to us. We owned and operated a family restaurant for 10 yrs. as well as a bed and breakfast 'Park View Inn' for 12 yrs. We love to travel and have loved the experience of staying in other VRBO's. While preparing this property we wanted to incorporate everything we would want to experience if we brought our family to vacation in Montana! Our home will suit your every need from a romantic getaway, couples retreat, business meetings or family vacations.

Why the Owner Chose Columbia Falls:
We have traveled all over the U.S. as well as Costa Rica. We like beautiful things and enjoy an adventure. Creating this unique experience has brought us a great deal of pleasure and we love to share it with others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This Court Yard Home has a lovely covered wrap around porch where you can enjoy the summer evenings. Cozy up to the river rock fireplace on a cool evening and watch your favorite flick on our 55' smart TV. If you like to dine in you will enjoy the beautiful dinning room that can seat 10 easily or sit at the bar to sip on your favorite beverage. This is a family friendly property. One benefit is the (walking) proximity to numerous restaurants, specialty shops, river, 2 city parks etc.
