About Sarah

Ryan and I were born and raised right here in the Flathead Valley. We have been married for 16 years. After going away for college, we decided this is the best place to call home. We love all that there is to do here in the Flathead. We regularly bike, hike, camp, boat, fish and just take in the views. We are both high school teachers at Stillwater Christian School in Kalispell. Ryan coaches high school soccer and Sarah coaches high school basketball. During the summers we move closer to family and the family farm across the valley. We would like to offer to you our wonderful home for the summer months. We hope you enjoy vacationing in Montana as much as we enjoy living here!

Sarah purchased this house in 2009

Why Sarah chose Glacier Country

We spent several years looking for the perfect home for us. This home is located in the central valley, coveted by locals for its convenience to the 3 major towns in the valley – Kalispell, Columbia Falls, and Whitefish. The great room in this home is perfect for entertaining large groups which we love to do. The setting is peaceful with beautiful views. We hope you love our home as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

Because this is our home during the school year you will find all of the amenities you would expect in the home. From gadgets in the kitchen to board games in the closet, you will find all you would expect to find in a house.

Perfect tranquil vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family couldn't have been more pleased with Glacier Countryside Escape. The home is very well furnished, comfortable seating for a large family in family room and dining areas. The beds are extremely comfortable with very nice linens. The house is immaculately clean. Views from the front porch and the back patio are fabulous and if you're there at sunset make sure to have your camera ready. The surrounding mountains make a stunning backdrop. Ryan and Sarah provided a kitchen completely equipped with anything you might need for cooking and serving. Pantry also contained staple items which were much appreciated. Since we visit family in Kalispell every year we have found our new "home away from home"! Thank you so much for sharing your home Ryan and Sarah!!

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Sarah and Ryan. We spent a week in this beautiful home for a family reunion, and couldn't have asked for anything else. It was so well stocked with everything you could ask for, and then some...including a croquet set, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The beds were wonderful, and lovely spacious room everywhere. We had loads of room to sit together and enjoy visiting, grilling, and enjoying the beautiful view of the mountains from the back yard. We hope to stay in this corner of paradise again!!!

Exceptional home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the Glacier Park area and this home was wonderful to come back to every night. It was well appointed and there wasn't anything we were missing from our own home. The backyard was peaceful and relaxing and had beautiful vIews of the mountains. Definitely made our trip enjoyable. Thank you Ryan and Sarah!

An incredible home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Ryan and Sarah, for sharing your beautiful home with us. I loved every moment in your home! Impeccably maintained and appointed, quiet, well-stocked, comfortable, beautiful, and convenient to so many places.

I am forever spoiled for vacation stays. I can't even imagine going on another vacation and having to spend it in a hotel. <shiver> I love being able to go to sleep in a comfortable, quiet space and your master suite definitely delivered! And that bed... perfect!

I loved coming "home" to your home after a long day out on the trail or doing other touristy types of things. And the jacuzzi tub was a god send after our 15 mile, 150 flights hiking day! (my 25-year-old son has a slightly sadistic side to him :) This old man definitely needed that!

There are so many places I could recommend but you'll find most of them in Ryan and Sarah's immensely helpful book. We took it with us every day! We did discover a new brewery in Columbia Falls that was very good. It's called Backslope Brewing. The Red Rice and Beans (with shrimp) was delicious! Unfortunately they were out of my favorites - Porters and Stouts - but their other beers were delicious, nonetheless. And a great place for hungry hikers just west of West Glacier is The Wandering Gringo. Humongous burritos that are very tasty!!

Overall, a fantastic vacation made that much better by an incredible place to call home! Thank you, Ryan and Sarah!

Fabulous home, perfect for large family!

  • 5 of 5

This home really put the rest and relaxation in our vacation!! Traveling by car across the country to spend time with family at Glacier National Park can make one weary. After spending a great deal of time in the car to get to Montana and then touring the park in the car and hiking also, the family was happy but tired each evening. Being able to come back to this beautiful, peaceful, clean, well-equipped home was a blessing! Sarah and Ryan have thought of everything one needs to have a home away from home. We enjoyed home-cooked meals, croquet, board games, watChing the NBA Finals, and more. Their rental binder was thorough and helpful, and they were lovely to work with. We hope to visit again someday and would make this our first choice of places to stay.
