About Kyle & Liz Flynn
After meeting on a cattle drive vacation in Townsend, MT in 2005 I moved to Montana from London. Having grown up near the beach in England it was the answer to a dream to be able to buy this gorgeous getaway. Having lovingly updated it, we now hope to make many memories with families and friends in the future. We hope you do too!
Kyle & Liz Flynn purchased this House in 2016
Why Kyle & Liz Flynn chose Helena Valley Southeast
This place has some magic! Its close enough to town to be convenient but waking up on the water makes you feel like you are a million miles away from the hustle and bustle. Our children love building forts, fishing, swimming and playing in the upstairs of the house. Everything has been updated so it feels new and fresh and clean! Its the perfect getaway! Cozy by the fire in the winter and refreshing in the hot summer months.

Beautiful location with views of the lake from the house and sweeping views from the deck.
Well maintained home and nicely furnished. Beds were very comfortable with nice bedding. Nicely updated tile bathrooms.
This is a beautiful property with spectacular views! It worked great for our family!
Getting to the home is easy on paved roads and only 20-30 minutes from Helena. There are a couple of good restaurants around the lake, but getting anywhere else can be done without problems. Beautiful sandy beaches are very close! The home has an upstairs loft with 2 bedrooms perfect for young children and 2 bedrooms down for adults that are very comfortable. Laundry room is very convenient and the kitchen works. Overall, wonderful place to stay!
Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Heron House. Could not have asked for a better experience. The owners take great care of the place and ensure you have everything you need. We will definitely be back next year!
This house is amazing.
The house was beautiful and had everything we needed plus more. Great lake views from every room, we enjoyed the kyacks and great fishing. The area is so peaceful and breathtaking views from the deck. We will treasure these memories.
Our family had a wonderful time here. Our girls (11 & 16) absolutely loved the kayaks and spent hours in them every day. We didn't let them use any of their electronics during the stay and we were amazed how quickly they immersed themselves into nature and relaxation. We brought my senior parents and they navigated the terrain very well in order to fish and watch the kids play in the water. Our two dogs had a great time too - they explored, swam, and napped the days away. There was even plenty of room in our bedroom closet for their two crates at bedtime. The home is beautifully decorated and has every amenity you could think of. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were amazing! The views from every room are stunning - especially during sunrise and sunset. We had several outings planned but ended up canceling them because everyone just wanted to stay at the property and relax. While there are neighbors on each side of the property, we didn't see or hear anyone - just happy birds and the occasional sailboat or kayak cruising by on the lake! We hope to return again next year :)
Beautiful and fun!
We had a wonderful stay! The home was beautiful, clean, and equipped with everything we needed for a fun and relaxing stay. The beds were incredibly comfortable. At the end of our stay my son said, “I miss home, but I don’t miss my bed.” The views were stunning and the kayaks and games provided lots of entertainment. Our teenagers were a bit too tall for the upstairs ceiling and doors (and hit their heads a few times) but they thought the low ceilings were hilarious and really enjoyed it up there. Thanks for letting us stay! Travelers should be aware that phone service and internet are very limited, but for us this was a plus. We loved connecting with each other instead of our devices.
This property is 15 miles from the state Capital of Helena in southwestern Montana. Many local amenities abound. See the website below for more details about Helena and local attractions.
