This upstairs studio is all new construction in 2013. It has new appliances which include, washer, dryer, range, microwave, refrigerator, flat screen satelite T.V. The bathroom does not have a tub but has a glass door shower. We are located five miles west of Kalispell on five beautiful tree'd acres with walking paths and views of the mountains to the west, Glacier Park to the east and Whitfish Ski Resort to the North. There is a large stone lined fire pit for campfires that guests are free to use. The studio is separate from our main family house, with it's own entrance.
I am an Independent Contractor and have lived on this property for 35 years. I moved here from cornfields of Indiana and Ohio. Lisa and I first saw the Flathead Valley on our vacation and decided to quit our jobs in South Bend, Indiana, move here without knowing anyone. It was a good move and have never regretted it. We have two children, Nawnie and Griffin who have spent time out of valley and now are living back here.
I feel fortunate that purchased this property back in 1980, even though it seemed expensive at the time, to buy in today's market might be prohibitive. The beauty of it, is that it is close to town and still very private. There is a K through eighth grade school just down the road from us, which both kids went to. It was just land with no building on it when we purchased, but fortunately, I was pretty handy with a hammer and was able to build my own home over the years when I wasn't working my day job. We lived in a flat roof daylight basement for the first 7 years, saving money to continue building up. It was a lot of incovieniences but worth it in the end. I divided the property a few years back and built another house just up the hill from the first one. This is the house we live in now and my daughter occupies the original house.
I belive the most appealing aspect of this property is that it is very private and yet just eight minutes from the Hutton Ranch complex, where are many resturants and establishments such as Home Depot, Target, Costco, Walmart and many others too numerous to list. The studio sits above my shop that I just finished in 2013. Everything is new and very functional. No worries of any shop noise as I will not be using it when the studio is occupied. I want my guests to have a great Montana expierance and I will do what I can to accomadate that. We have flower gardens that we plant every spring which adds to the beauty. We do have fence them, as I have found nothing that keeps the deer from using it as a smorgasbord. We have lots of wildlife here with deer and an occasional elk passing through. Bald eagles are not uncommon and many different species of birds including a family of turkeys.
The studio apartment was cozy, well appointed and quiet. It was half an hour from Glacier National Park, which was our vacation destination.
Douglas, the owner was friendly and helpful.
We could not have asked for a better place to stay for our visit to Glacier National Park and the Kalispell area. The garage apartment was the perfect size and had everything we needed during our stay. We enjoyed waking up each morning and watching the deer grazing in the yard. The apartment was close enough to town that restaurants, stores, etc. were easily accessible while being just far enough out of town to experience the beauty and serenity of what everyone loves about Montana. We will definitely stay here again if we return to the area. The owners are very friendly and accommodating while allowing you plenty of privacy.
It was a great place to stay for a week. Everything was very clean, and everything we needed was there. The owners were very pleasant, and we are very interested in staying there again.

Spent a fantastic week at the Studio! Doug the owner and his wife were extremely kind and helpful, but also gave you your privacy. We loved it and will rent it again if we ever return to Kalispell! It is truly "eat off the floor" clean!
We loved our studio. Very clean and comfortable. It was nice to look out the window and see deer grazing in the yard. We definately would go back.

We are located about 35 minutes from Glacier National Park. In 20 minutes you can be at Flathead Lake, which is the largest fresh water lake west of the Mississippi River. It has abundent opportuities for fishing, boating and swimming. There are many lakes and rivers all within a 30 minute drive. Kalispell and Whitefish are very art oriented with many galleries and a couple of museums. There are many nightclubs that bring in top name bands and entertainers from all over the country. It is not unusual to see celebrities in local bars and restruants, as many have second homes here in the valley.
