If you are looking for a cozy retreat with proximity to town and country alike, Plum Cottage is the place for you! You'll feel instantly at home in this charming 1950's cottage. Updated, yet full of character, the Plum is just 5 minutes from the center of Kalispell, swimming, or hiking, 15 minutes from Flathead Lake, the Majestic Valley Arena, and 2 golf courses, and 45 minutes from two ski resorts (Whitefish and Blacktail), two outstanding summer theaters, and Glacier Park. Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, the Plum will more than meet your needs.
The cottage has 1850 square feet with two bedrooms upstairs (one queen, one double), one bedroom (queen) and bathroom on the main floor, and a hide-a-bed in the living room. Each bedroom has its own TV and vanity (no sink) with mirror. The living/dining area has an open feel with large windows and an inviting fireplace where you'll want to snuggle or play board games while you enjoy the crackling fire. Bring your computer and take advantage of the wireless high-speed internet or watch TV on the new 51' flat screen.
Outside, there is a lovely creek which meanders through the property. Relax on the deck while you listen to the birds, or play badminton on the lawn. Just 1/3 mile down the road is the trailhead for Lone Pine State Park. Hike to the top and you will be rewarded with an incredible panoramic view of the valley.
Cleaniliness and minimal environmental impact are priorities. The home is immaculate. Non-toxic, natural products are used as much as possible. Recycling is encouraged, with bins located in the garage.
Staying at the Plum--your home away from home--makes it fun and easy to take advantage of all that the Flathead Valley has to offer!

About the owner: Hi, I'm Kathy, the owner of Plum Cottage. The photo was taken at Hidden Lake in Glacier Park. When I retired after 25 years of teaching (mostly 2nd grade), I had no idea what the next phase of my life would bring. Then the notion of fixing up an older home to resell presented itself, and the more I told myself it was crazy, the more I wanted to do it! I had remodeled my own home to make an apartment for my father a few years ago, and found that I really enjoyed the process. So I channeled my carpenter grandfather, became a student of HGTV, and jumped in feet first! In the end, though, once I had put my heart and soul--and sweat--into this special old farmhouse, I fell completely in love with it. The original plan of reselling it was discarded, and the new plan of starting a vacation rental was born. Being able to exercise my creativity and share something I love with others has been very rewarding. If I'm not doing Plum-related work I'm probably working on another rental, reading a good book, hiking, or visiting friends.
Why the Owner Chose Kalispell, MT, USA:
I grew up in Kalispell, Montana. I've been to many other beautiful places, including the rain forests of Panama and the fjords of Norway, but somehow there's no place like home. Glacier National Park (near Kalispell) just takes my breath away every time I'm there. One of my favorite places ever since childhood has been Lone Pine State Park, with its panoramic views. When I saw a for sale sign in front of an old farmhouse on my way to hike at Lone Pine, I knew I had found my next project!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Plum's biggest benefit is location, location, location! You couldn't get closer to town without actually being in it, so you have all the conveniences of nearby shopping, restaurants, and culture. On top of that, a sweet little creek runs through the backyard, you have a view of the mountains beyond, you're a stone's throw away from Lone Pine State Park, and Glacier Park is about a 45 minute drive. Plum Cottage has a unique, old-fashioned charm, with modern conveniences. It has a fireplace for the cooler months, and a great deck with a gas grill overlooking the creek for the warmer months. It has central air, wireless internet, and four televisions with digital cable. The home and grounds are very clean and tidy.
