Private Home on the Flathead River

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Once you enter through the gate of this unique home development, where only 8 private cabins exist, you have arrived at a very special place.

This peaceful and VERY RARE location sits RIGHT ON THE NORTH FORK RIVER and is nestled amongst beautiful trees with breathtaking views of GLACIER NATIONAL PARK and the Desert & Flathead Mountain Range.

You will feel right at home in this spacious, fully furnished cabin. We have recently renovated adding a magnificent stone fireplace. It has a large great room that boasts a 50' flat screen TV (satellite), DVD, CD, outdoor speakers, open kitchen and dining room with ABUNDANT views all around you! EVERY seat in the main room surrounds you with all the scenic beauty Montana has to offer.

The master bedroom is upstairs, quite large, approx 1000sq ft., with king size bed and private bath

The second bedroom is with a king size log accented bed...we have been told our guests 'have never slept so good.'

The third bedroom hosts two log accents bunk beds, with the top bunks being twins and the bottom bunks being double.

Convenient to Glacier National Park, Columbia Falls, Kalispell & Whitefish which are all just a short, easy drive away.

You can stop by the Big Sky Waterslides, Great Bear Adventure, the Maze, House of Mystery, take a helicopter ride for an aerial view of BIG SKY Country, schedule a rafting trip, horseback riding or visit the Hungry Horse Dam.

One Incredible Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The home is everything you can ask for, simply beautiful, perfectly located, close enough but far enough. We watched wildlife in the evenings from the deck, even saw a grizzly cross as well. We definitely will be back.

outstanding vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We regularly rent vacation homes and found that this one was one of the best stocked, best maintained and most relaxing of any that we have rented. We really appreciated having the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful home and beautiful location for such a rejuvinating vacation. We rented bicycles at Glacier Cyclery in Whitefish and ventured out each day for rides in all directions. At night we shared wonderful dinners on the lovely deck overlooking the Flathead River. We highly recommend this property.

It Doesn't Get Much Better Than This

  • 5 of 5

The house has a contemporary, solid, clean, comfortable feel and is in a fantastic setting, right on the river. It provided a great internal space for the 5 of us -- playing cards, reading ghost stories, savoring our breakfasts on the deck. The location is only a few minutes from the West Glacier entrance, which allowed us easy access to explore the jaw-droppingly awesome "sculpture work" left by the glaciers in the many-layered mountains. The McDonald Lake Lodge was also within easy reach and we really enjoyed our dinners there. Compliments on what you've assembled; it certainly worked well for us. Thank you for sharing it.

Montana Haven

  • 5 of 5

If you ask me if the pictures do this property justice I would have to say "no way." A picture can't possibly capture the reality of what lies in store. The house is awesome, but it is the surroundings that truly set it apart. Views of the mountains, the river, the secluded feel are all part of what makes it special. In spite of the pictures we had seen, the information we received ahead of time and our previous experience with VRBO, we were overwhelmed upon seeing this house and broken-hearted when it was time to go. I highly recommend it.

5 Star Home on the Flathead River

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described in the listing and photos. Our party of 10 guests felt right at home with the fully equipped kitchen, full entertainment system, and outdoor seating by the river. The bedrooms were very comfortable, and there were lots of toys for our toddlers and infant to play with. This property has the perfect balance of remoteness and good proximity to a 24-Hr Super 1 Foods grocery store, 20min access to Glacier National Park. We saw more animals wandering along nearby roads of the property than in the National Park itself! Also nearby was Pinewood Park & Community Pool, which had a shallow baby and toddler pool area with sprinklers shaped like a turtle and fire

hydrant. We would definitely stay here again, at this 5-star cabin by the river.

Time away from the everyday

  • 4 of 5

The pictures and description fit this home well. The location on the river was very nice, just outside the park and made our excusions into the park very easy. Use the Blankenship back road, it was well maintained and really cut our travel time. Watch for the deep puddles going into the home, they should disappear after high water is over. The home was clean and the kitchen was laid out well for buffet style dinners and visitng. The high ceiling and windows were wonderful to view the river but it made the home somewhat noisy, or was that just my kid. Plenty of storage was available for personal supplies although the refrigerator and stove could not quite handle everything we brought to prepare and cook. I could have used a couple more burners on the stove.. The master bedroom was wonderful and the lower single room as well. The additional room with the full size bunks would work really well for kids, it's not so great for adults. Sitting on the deck overlooking the river and the camp fire was very nice and will be even better once the weather warms up just a bit more. Would I recommend this home? Yes I would. It worked very well for a small family gathering and we had a wonderful time sharing old stories and creating new ones.
