About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom with king bed, 1 Bath with 6' tub/shower

Beginning the 2015 season this riverfront home will only be available for up to two persons. You rent home with access to one bedroom and one bath, kitchen, and great room. You are the only two guests in the home during your stay. I (homeowner) lock off two bedrooms that had been rented in previous years and return to live in the home during winter season. Seems to be some confusion since guest said I "share" my home. I do! But, I do not live in the home while it is rented to guests.

Newer one level home on the Flathead River with river frontage and views of the peaks of Glacier National Park. Walk along the sheltered sand and rock beaches of this Scenic Corridor for as far as the eye can see. Great fishing. Catch rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, bull trout, whitefish, etc., right from the property edge. Large kitchen, breakfast bar, and dining table overlooking river make eating in a pleasure. A barbecue is provided. Relax on the large cedar deck while enjoying the beauty and therapeutic sounds of the river. The privacy and scenery leave you in awe. There are many private sitting areas along this riverfront property where you can wander off to enjoy some extra solitude. One of the assets of this unique property is where the house is situated. There are no homes right next to you, as is usually the case along prime riverfront locations. You can relax on the deck without the next door neighbor knowing! Woods surrounding the home afford privacy as it sits in the middle of three acres close to the river. Even though you are in a wooded area, the landscape allows plenty of sun to bask in should that be your desire. The dead-end location assures no drive-by traffic. If you want your vacation time to be a get-a-way, this is the place for you!


The bedroom is furnished with a king size Sealy Posturepedic mattress and exquisite Montana handmade burled log furniture. The bath is across from the bedroom and there is a hall door that closes off from the great room so you have your own private suite; sleep or rest quietly while your other half watches a movie or cooks. The spacious great room has two leather swivel recliners to kick back in and watch the news or a movie on a 46' flat screen TV. The bedroom has a ceiling fan. The great room has two. The bath features a 6' long tub/shower with handicap set-up. Your vacation won't feel crowded in this home located on private wooded acreage on a dead end road. Plenty of parking for large vehicles or boats. The home is in the quaint town of Hungry Horse (population approx. 900) which has a large supermarket, two gas station/stores, restaurants, churches, antique shops, and a tavern, but your vacation home is in a secluded, quiet spectacular location on the river away from it all. Glacier Park is only 10 minutes from your doorstep. Glacier Park International Airport is 15 minutes from the home.

Due to the guest who was concerned about the eagle nest, following is an update. The new nest, a few feet away in same tree from nest that fell in 2015, held and two babies were hatched March 17, 2016. July 17, 2016 guests saw the first flight of the eagle babies! A week later a big wind took down the new nest, so no idea if the eagles will try to build again, so this is an eagle disclaimer! Eagles still in this canyon year round but no idea if they will try to rebuild the nest again in this tree as branches to hold a nest are now limited. Hope so - love watching them!

Golden and bald eagles, white whistling swans, pileated woodpeckers, blue heron, sandhill cranes and assorted other waterfowl, deer, and bear also frequent this area.
The Bob Marshall Wilderness, Hungry Horse Reservoir, Hungry Horse Dam are just minutes away by vehicle. Lion Lake is a wonderful warm swimming lake for children and adults to enjoy, which is only four minutes from the home. Take guided river float trips along the river adjoining Glacier Park. Books are provided in the home to help you find hiking or activities during your stay. There are sports rental facilities nearby to rent equipment. Enjoy Montana at it's finest!
