About Steve and Jen
Growing up on a ranch in Montana, Jen cultivated a special affinity for nature and the great outdoors. She's traveled the world as a stage performer, voice-over artist, arts educator, writer and film producer. Steve, hails from jolly ole Scotland originally, and works as a technology consultant. Jen and Steve met in Slovakia while Jen was on a Fulbright teaching assignment and proceeded to take a whole year to explore the world together. They were married in 2011 on Lake MacDonald in Glacier National Park (a true Scottish-American wedding!). Travel is their passion (along with dark chocolate, golf, skiing and their Jack Russell pup, Lucy). Montana is in their hearts and a place they return to often. They love hosting and sharing this beautiful place with folks from all over the world.
Why Steve and Jen chose Whitefish
Nestled in a wooded wonderland, Scouts Forest truly is a nature lover's paradise. White tail deer, elk, wild turkeys and even an occasional bear or moose visit from time to time. Outside, relax with a glass of wine and enjoy star gazing from your choice of private patios or roof-top deck, surrounded by giant rock cliffs and adjacent woods. Our neighborhood is quiet and serene with horse ranches and an organic farm next door. If you're looking for a true retreat-style experience with quiet solitude and a wonderful spot to relax and reconnect with those you love, this is the place for you. (If you want to host lots of loud obnoxious parties, we're sorry, this is probably not the best choice.)
What makes this House unique
Outside you can relax on your choice of several patio/seating areas, a deck with a comfortable swing seat, or by a large firepit where you can enjoy evening campfires or s'mores - all set against the backdrop of your own 40ft mountain waterfall. There is also a horseshoe pit and area for lawn games.

Wonderful, relaxing retreat!
Scouts Forest is one of those places that feels like home instantly! The whole process of booking, expectations, check-in, and check-out was easy and seamless. Steve and Jen did all the things that make for a warm welcome.
The property was absolutely beautiful! While tucked away off the beaten path (exactly what we wanted), it was still convenient and easy to get to, even after flight delays put us getting there well after 1 A.M. The directions provided were super clear and concise.
Anything you could need was provided for. This property displayed all of the comforts of home. Beds and linens were comfy and top quality, and I had the best sleep with the windows open for letting in the cool night air.
Should we find ourselves back in this part of the country-hopefully soon-I will not hesitate to book Scouts Forest again. Thank you Steve and Jen for a memorable first experience in Big Sky Montana!
This was a great house to stay in for a relaxing vacation. It was clean, pleasantly decorated, nice linens, beds comfortable and had all the amenities you would want. The kitchen was great for preparing our meals and then being able to eat outside in the peaceful environment with the waterfall and watching the wildlife. It doesn't take more than 10 min. to get into Whitefish. Jen was great to get back with us quickly for any concerns during the stay. They thought of everything that might be needed for our stay. We would highly recommend Scouts Forest.
You guys were awesome! Thanks for being such great guests and taking care of our property like it was your own. You're welcome back anytime.

Gorgeous and Comfortable Getaway
Jennifer and Steve's home is even more beautiful than the VRBO photos show. The house is very tastefully decorated, sheets, blankets and towels all of high quality, the kitchen is well-stocked with cookware and most cooking utensils. and the outdoor gas grill is great. The garden patio has several great seating areas and would be a great place to host a party of up to 10-15 people. The drive into Whitefish takes about 10-15 minutes, but one never tires of the scenery along the way. Jennifer was great about answering all our questions very promptly. We would gladly return to this home!
It was a pleasure hosting you and your family. You are welcome back anytime and we're glad you enjoyed it!

Great house, great stay
The house is beautiful and so well maintained. Really top-notch. Everything in it from the amenities in the kitchen, the artwork on the walls, to the towels in the bathrooms has obviously been chosen with care and good style. The yard and patio area are just as beautiful and a real treat to spend time relaxing on. I highly recommend this house and would definitely stay there again!
Excellent Well Appointed Get Away House
This house turned out to be the perfect house for our family of four (all adults) vacation. The house's is rustic theme throughout added to the get away from it all experience. The furniture is plentiful and very comfortable. The upstairs bedrooms are also well appointed and the beds are super comfortable which makes for a great night sleep after some strenuous hiking in Glacier National Park. The house has a terrific backyard with plenty of chairs and tables, a horse shoe pit and first class grill. The location is very convenient to the restaurants and shops of downtown Whitefish. Jennifer was there when we arrived to make sure everything was in order. The house was ready at check in time and was very clean. I highly recommend this property to all travelling to the Whitefish/Glacier National Park area of Montana.
It was a pleasure hosting you and your family and we are glad you enjoyed your time at Scouts Forest. You are welcome back anytime!
