This large 6 bedroom country home is situated right on the Stillwater River in the Flathead Valley and is accessed through its own private gate. The property has over 2,000 feet of river frontage on 8 acres and is located at the very end of a private dirt road. The Stillwater River wraps around this piece and creates a very unique peninsula which offers a private and peaceful setting. The property has plenty of trees, meadows and fenced pasture for horses, along with the river winding through on 3 sides. The Stillwater River is a slow moving river, very peaceful and is an attraction to a lot of wildlife in the area.
The deck encompasses quite a view of the river! The river creates a special mood on the property, it has a calming effect on one's soul. It speaks of nature, the simple joys of life and a constant reminder of what is real in life. I will also be leaving a few horses out in the pastures to graze and I have to say, I never get tired of watching them. The horses, the river, the setting it all creates is just plain nice.
The double doors from the living area of the house lead right out on to the deck which offers comfortable seating arrangements. The kitchen offers all stainless steel appliances along with granite counter tops, a brand new Costco NXR 4 burner gas stove and a built in deep fryer for the cooking enthusiasts. It also has a detached coffee bar with a commercial Bunn coffeemaker and an additional sink. The dining table can seat 10 comfortably with 2 additional chairs for 12. There are also 3 log stools for additional seating at the breakfast bar.
The 6 bedrooms offer Montana made rustic log beds and consist of:
1 King bedroom/main level with attached full bath
1 King bedroom/upstairs with attached full bath
1 King bedroom upstairs w/ full bath adjacent
1 Queen bedroom upstairs w/ full bath adjacent
1 Queen bedroom/downstairs with 3/4 bath adjacent
1 Double bedroom/upstairs, small and private
There is also a queen hide-a-bed in the TV room and a
single twin mattress that can be pulled out for use.
Pac-n-plays are available.
The TV room offers a 60” TV, DVD player, Dish satellite channels and Netflix. There is a large laundry room for your use with all supplies provided, ample room for parking and a large circular driveway for any trailers or motor homes that come through. This would make a very nice location for a family gathering. I also manage my brother's vacation home, vrbo # 352040, which is 2 minutes away and when you combine the two homes, it is a great place for a family gathering, sleeping a combination of 20+ people.
We are located about 20 minutes from Glacier International Airport and right between Kalispell and Whitefish, 12 miles in either direction. Big Mountain is just 10 minutes outside of Whitefish and offers many hiking/nature trails. Glacier National Park (west entrance) is approx. 34 miles from here.
We are quite conveniently located, right in the center of the Valley, here in the rural Whitefish area.
Major Attractions within a 45 minute drive:
There are many lakes to recreate at: Whitefish Lake, Tally Lake, and Flathead Lake - all within 30 minutes. Tally Lake (which is off the beaten track) is a beautiful pristine mountain lake which is rarely crowded. It has a family atmosphere with swimming, hiking, wildlife viewing, lake and stream fishing, established fire pits, restrooms, a grassy beach area and campsites.

I have a caterer named Suzanne who is available if any groups would like to have some meals cooked for them here at the house. She is local and is a very diversified wonderful cook! She is separate and independent from the vacation rental.

Very conveniently located in the Flathead Valley between
Kalispell and Whitefish, MT. The home and location on the
Stillwater River reflect Montana living!
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Dan and Jen O'Neill - Owners and Managers. We have lived out in the country for over 20 years, we are in our fifties now. Danny is originally from Ireland and myself, Seattle, WA. We both love the outdoor life. I enjoy horseback riding on the country trails and Danny is an avid fisherman. We have lived in the Flathead Valley for 11 years now. We are offering this vacation rental with the hopes that you can and will make yourselves at home here while you experience the beautiful Flathead Valley in Montana.
Why the Owner Chose Whitefish, MT, USA:
We purchased this property for it was one of the most unique settings we found in the Flathead Valley being that the Stillwater River has such a special influence as it winds around the property. We are private but still very conveniently located; 10-15 minutes from town.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoying the river, wildlife/bird viewing, the horses grazing and just the perfect amount of privacy down our little dirt road. There is no traffic here at the end of our road and no immediate neighbors to disturb. But yet, town is only 10-15 minutes away.
