Come & experience Glacier's pristine forests, alpine meadows, rugged mountains & spectacular lakes. With over 700 miles of trails, Glacier is a hiker's paradise for adventurous visitors seeking wilderness & solitude.

Meadow Lake Golf Course, at the Meadow Lake Golf Resort in Montana's Flathead Valley, is 18 holes of the finest golf in the Rocky Mountains. At par 72, with majestic views of the Rockies and 7 holes bordering streams and lakes, Meadow Lake is a championship course rated by Golf Digest as one of the best 6 courses to play in Montana.

Snowcat Adventures - Nestled right in the snow belt of the scenic Whitefish Range, where light fluffy snow blankets our mountains. If what you're looking for is deep powder with open glades and enough terrain to match your ability, you've found it in approximately 35 square miles of the Stillwater State Forest in the Whitefish Range and you need to try this backcountry Snowcat adventure.

Mountain Biking - Soak in the amazing vistas while getting a little exercise. One of the best ways to experience the beauty of Montana's natural setting is cruising along some of the 20+ miles of biking trails at Whitefish Mountain Resort.

Hiking - Leaving directly from Whitefish Mountain Resort Village is the popular hiking experience of the Danny On Trail, which meanders up the slopes of Big Mountain through blooming wildflowers to the 6,817 ft summit, passing through forests and fields. Epic vistas look out over the valley and the mountains from various points along the trail. Where you could find wild huckleberry’s for an added treat. Known as our “Purple Gold.”

Flathead Lake offers you plenty of room to play – in, on, and by the water. Flathead Lake is home to trophy-size trout, yellow perch and whitefish. Located just south of Kalispell, the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi is 28 miles long and up to 15 miles wide. That’s 188 square miles of pure enjoyment! The lake’s sparkling waters and miles of tree-lined shore offer unlimited recreational opportunities and wildlife habitat. Overlooking it all are the magnificent Swan and Mission mountain ranges.

White Water Rafting- explore the North Fork, Middle Fork or the South Fork of the Flathead River.

If shopping is what you desire, from clothing to antiques to novelties; Whitefish, Kalispell, Bigfork and Columbia Falls offers it all.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: We fell in love with Glacier National Park and the Flathead Valley on our one year anniversary. As a physical therapist and a nurse we enjoy being active and spending time with our three kids in the outdoors. We are amazed at the variety of outdoor opportunities all within close proximity of our home. Whether hiking in Glacier National Park or rafting the Flathead River there is no shortage of fun activities. We are thrilled to share our home on the beautiful Flathead River so others can experience this amazing part of North America.

Why Hungry Horse, MT, USA:
We love the serenity of being able to gaze out at the river from our home, and appreciate all the qualities of small town living.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is one of the few homes that is riverfront on the way to Glacier National Park.
