About Megan Lester

We've traveled extensively and always choose to stay at vacation rentals. We look for the best ideas and look to bring every positive feature we find to this house. As a result we've created an very unique experience designed to be the best value in the Flathead Valley. This house is hands down where we would stay if we were visiting the Flathead Valley.

Megan Lester purchased this house in 2003

Why Megan Lester chose Kalispell

It is one-of-a-kind and feels like home. It's just a great place to get together with friends and family and relax. Everyone who stays here tells us it felt like it was their home when they stayed.

What makes this house unique

Great classic Kalispell neighborhood a short walk from anything you could need. All the homes around it are very nice. The huge deck and yard is perfect in summer and other than sleeping you can just about live on the back deck. Within walking distance to about anything you need. Centrally located between Glacier Park, Flathead Lake, and both ski resorts. This house is just perfectly laid out. It's got great shade, stucco siding (which keeps it cool in the summer), beautiful yard and landscaping. Our work often takes us to Kalispell and we often do work in the home office. Great place to relax as well. It's just a perfect home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you again for renting your house to us for our annual "friends trip". We visited, shopped, ate and had a great time, and your house suited our needs perfectly. As you know, there were 8 of us and we did not feel at all cramped or tight for space and we enjoyed coming back to "home base" at the end of a long day hitting the shops. Thanks again! It was perfect for our group

Well done.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in Kalispell. I can’t imagine there is a better home or location in Kalispell. The house was clean, everything was stocked, expectations were clear and reasonable. The host was very nice on the phone, and most importantly, the mattresses are all very comfortable. A couple of the shower can be a bit tricky if you’re a larger person, but that is just the way older homes are. We will be back, you should go! Thank you for having us.

wedding weekend

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at your home; however, we do have one little issue with our stay. The downstairs was quite musty smelling. One of the folks who was supposed to stay down there opted for the couch. I truly believe something needs to be done with that smell.

Owner's Response: We value and appreciate your feedback. We've found that the main heating duct downstairs had been closed...that is necessary to keep the downstairs warmer with better air flow and because it was closed it was quite a bit cooler than normal. We've opened it and it seems to have remedied the situation thanks to your feedback. Thank you!

Ok for what we needed

  • 4 of 5

The house worked for what we needed. The house needed some updating. Basement was musky smelling. Beds were comfortable and furnishings were suitable. Could not use the outside patio because it had rained and cushions were wet. It stated in description that it was good for elderly. This house was very hard to enter for my mom and the main bathtub was too high for her to use. Kitchen had nice setup and everything you need to cook. Overall the house was nice and in ok neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. We just don't know sometimes when there's something that needs to be improved and we take that very seriously. We've opened an heating vent that apparently had been closed downstairs and that is necessary to keep the area warmer with better air flow. Thanks for staying with us!

Cozy family retreat in the heart of Kalispell

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying here at the Apple tree home. It accommodated our group of all ages (including a toddler) very well. Scott was very quick to help us out when we locked ourselves out of the bottom floor. The location is perfectly situated in Kalispell, surrounded by a charming neighborhood. We enjoyed exploring the area by bike and by foot, and of course visiting the gorgeous Glacier National Park. We are glad we were able to spend a couple of weeks here, and we hope to return again someday.
