We require all guests to refrain from wearing their outdoor shoes in the studio. We do provide slippers and a storage area for shoes. This is a new studio with beautiful hard wood floors which we want to protect from the dirt and gravel from outdoors. Besides, this is actually a fairly typical Montana custom--"Bear Feet Only"!!
In addition, the Barn Loft will be available for a reasonable additional cost Summer 2017. Please ask about this unique option with the owner if interested.

This spacious, beautiful, custom built vacation rental is perfectly situated at the North end of Flathead Lake in Northwest Montana, 40 miles from the entrance to Glacier National Park and just 30 minutes from Kalispell Airport. It is surrounded by forest and extremely private but easily accessible by a privately maintained road, just 10 minutes from Hwy 93. This is the perfect place for those eager to explore the beauty of 'The Last Great Place'--world class hiking in Glacier Park, Jewel Basin, fishing the wild and scenic Flathead rivers, boating on Flathead Lake, golfing nearby beautiful courses, and horseback riding, etc. In fact, as the local magazine is titled, there are '101 Things to Do in the Flathead Valley'. The quaint old logging village of Somers just down the hill is across the Lake from the famous art community of Bigfork. Somers boasts several very good restaurants and Lakeside just a few miles away along the lake has a great brewery and a coffee cafe with the best cinnamon rolls ever! What is noteworthy however, are the spectacular views from the studio, with huge plate glass windows--it is like you are on deck of a ship you feel so close above the lake--it is truly a one of a kind place to stay. The studio is perfectly decorated with collections of art and furniture from around the world. The studio has everything in it for the gourmet cook and a beautiful redwood deck for those wanting to dine al fresco during warm summer evenings. The owner takes great pride in keeping 'Achewa' a real 'home away from home'.
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: We built the main house in 2000. Following retirement, in mid-2016 we decided to move permanently to Montana from Virginia and have settled into the main house. We decided to construct a separate large garage/studio apartment next to the main house so that we could offer this property for vacation rental in 2017. Everyone that sees this new studio is amazed with its awesome, custom designed features and unparalleled views. We also have two reining horses and a new barn and arena on our property. We built the barn with the idea of also offering a "glamping" option for those seeking a "real Montana experience". We are avid outdoors people and enjoy all of what Montana offers--gorgeous mountains, rivers and lakes.
Why the Owner Chose Flathead Lake, MT, USA:
Though we are not originally from Montana, having spent most of our lives in Virginia, we have always felt connected to this "Last Great Place". It is the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors and live an active, healthy lifestyle. It truly is a special place and we love sharing it with friends, family and newcomers to the area.
The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
The benefits of this property are the amazing views, the quietness and privacy but also the accessibility to all that Glacier Country offers. Close to the downtown of Kalispell, stores, great restaurants, music and the arts, but far enough away that you feel that you are surrounded by mountains and lakes. We are a very close easy 3 miles to the Somers Boat Landing and Rails to Trails bike path. We are 50 minutes from the entrance to West Glacier and Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort and 30 minutes from Blacktail Mountain Ski Area. In addition, there are few places that also offer the opportunity to stay on a real horse property--watching horses graze while gazing out at the amazing scenery is truly a one of the kind experience.
