              This home is in the heart of the Flathead Valley which offers year round recreation activities. 7 Golf courses within 30 minutes and 3 more within 60 minutes. Whitefish Mountain winter resort within 30 minutes. Glacier Park is only 20 minutes away on a very scenic drive. Flathead Lake is 30 minutes away and offers every type of water activity you can imagine. Flathead River borders the property and there are many guides for fishing and floating fun. There are many lakes, rivers and streams for the fisherman to enjoy.

              Of course there are rodeos and western type activities with some Nationally ranked events occurring regularly.
