About the Property

Bring your family and your pets and 'live' Montana (pet fees under rates/notes)

This home has room for the entire family, sleeping up to 7 plus your pets. Whether your are heading to Glacier National Park or any of the many other things to do in the Flathead Valley, you'll love to come home to the peacefulness of the Country Gem and relax on the deck with your favorite cold beverage while enjoying the quiet views of the surrounding mountains. The 2 miniature ponies love to be petted and fed carrots and there's lots of room to play ball with your dog. Have a salad made with fresh ingredients you have picked from the garden (by mid-summer). Play a game of horseshoes or cook smores over the campfire in the yard. Just 7 minutes from town, 20 minutes from Flathead Lake, 30 minutes from Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain (zip-lining), and only 5-30 minutes from several golf courses, you are conveniently located to whatever you would like to do. There are outdoor concerts, art festivals, and 2 summer theatres in the area.

This custom farmhouse has cherry cabinets, tile and laminate floors, lots of light and an open feel with great views, an inviting fireplace, a piano and a guitar. The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances and cooking needs, including spices and condiments (food not included). Enjoy the 55' HD LED flat screen TV to watch movies from the DVD library, Netflix or listen to music on Pandora inside or outside on the deck. Bring your laptop and take advantage of the high-speed wireless internet. The main bedroom has skylights above the queen bed and there are large walk-in closets with enough space for all. A futon (double) and a queen luxury air-mattress are available in addition to the queen bed in the master bedroom along with a single bed in a separate bedroom downstairs. There is I full bath and 1 half bath upstairs.

The home has a total of 5 skylights to let in all the Montana sunshine, a large deck facing south with a smaller deck off the bedroom and a 4 person hot tub to relax in while enjoying the stars at night. There are 2 tree farms lining 2 sides of the property and a long row of poplar trees to relax under in the afternoons. There's plenty of room for the entire family to play outdoors, whether it is croquet, volleyball, horseshoes, yard games, sitting in the shade of multiple full-growth poplar trees or around a campfire.

Because pets are welcome in this Country Gem, there is a 'doggy' door upstairs with a custom area for 'little' dogs to go out onto the deck into a 5x8 covered chain-link kennel for your use as well if desired. The yard, almost an acre, is fenced so dogs and little children can't get into the pasture with the horses accidentally. The owner is a certified professional dog trainer, so if your dog has any annoying behaviors or just needs a little friendly assistance on it's manners, these can be addressed, with an appointment, while you are out 'playing' in Montana.

Cleanliness is a priority in this immaculate Country Gem and non-toxic or natural products are used as much as possible making the home safe for your entire family, including your pets. Attention has been paid to every detail to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I grew up in the Bitterroot Valley, south of Missoula, MT on a cattle ranch and was always on the back of a horse. After marrying, I was a mom of 3 children, including a set of twins, all of whom I home-schooled for several years. As a younger woman I trained horses and I've owned 2 breeding stallions and mares in the past. I've ridden jumping horses, done dressage, and 'natural horsemanship'. As my children grew up I began showing dogs in conformation. I have my little Shih Tzu as pets and am a Karen Pryor Certified Positive Reinforcement Dog Trainer. I use all postiive methods and teach as well as train. Animals have always been a focal point of my life for as long as I can remember. I love Montana, the outdoors and all that there is to do here. Glacier Park never fails to take my breath away, and tho I've been other places, there's no place like Montana.

Why the Owner Chose Kalispell, MT, USA:
I moved to Kalispell in 2003 and after looking at property all over the valley, finally found this piece of land. It is in the farming area of Creston. It has amazing views, is private, yet close to everything there is to do. I absolutely love being next to the tree farms. I can have trees without having to look straight up to see the sun. The home was originally built to be a guest house upstairs with a horse barn downstairs, but it was never used as a barn and life circumstances changed those plan. The downstairs has since been finished out to be a training area where I teach puppy classes in the winter months. I do volunteer teaching for the local 4-H program during the summer months at a park in town so the downstairs is unused during those months. This property has great views and privacy and I love sitting on the deck watching the horses in the pasture, hummingbirds on the flowers and enjoying Montana.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
This home is a very unique design. It is built to follow the sun throughout the day and to enjoy all the views and their beauty. It is secluded yet close, has decks, privacy, and a full RV hook-up in case part of your family wants to join you in an RV. There is room for all to play and your pets are welcome. Everything is very clean and I'll provide you with all the information and guidance that I can for a wonderful stay in Montana.
