About the Property

Jaybird's 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath with Forest and Mountain Views

Jaybird's is one of seven Abbott Valley vacation rentals. Under Owner Information, click on LINKS to view our website for availability and booking.

"Jaybirds" is a three bedroom, two bath single family home on one level with a king in the master, one queen bed and one double. Jaybird's is located in the country on the 275 acre Abbott Valley homestead and is sited on a secluded acre amidst swaying tamarack, birch and aspen. A fully equipped kitchen, dining area and master bedroom open out onto a lovely patio with a BBQ and dining area which is great for outdoor morning coffee and evening meals. A fire pit is perfect for relaxing and listening to the trees sway in the breeze and later for stargazing. There is a swing set and easy access to North Abbott Creek which is a paradise for nature lovers. Jaybird's was extensively remodeled in 2011. While it retains the original knotty pine and charm, it is equipped with all the modern amenities and conveniences for your comfort.

Please email, call owner or browse our website, abbottvalley, for more information and availability. The homes are private from one another, but close enough that a combination of units works great for larger groups. This is a perfect base for visiting Glacier National Park. It is also centrally located for all shopping needs: Grocery store (4 miles), Kalispell (20), Whitefish (15) and all the Flathead Valley has to offer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1946

About the owner: Abbott Valley was gifted to us by our parents about 25 years ago. We grew up here riding horses, fishing and swimming, hiking in the mountains, building forts, and riding tractors and haying and raising cattle. We went away to school, had careers, came back and now our third generation of family is enjoying 'the ranch'. The Foley Family

Why the Owner Chose Coram, MT, USA:
Abbott Valley is a 270 acre homestead minutes from the West Entrance to Glacier National Park. Nestled near Desert Mountain, and surrounded by Flathead National Forest, this is one of the larger tracts of land, still intact, which was originally homesteaded in 1910 shortly before the establishment of Glacier National Park (1911) and the founding of the National Park Service (1916). Abbott Valley is comprised of meadows, forests, beaver ponds and criss-crossed by two creeks, North and South Abbott. Two of our rentals - Mickey's and Baptiste - are the original homestead cabins dating back 100 years and though they have been remodeled they retain their original authentic log structures. They are a delight to stay in and it is fun to marvel that right here the Indians pitched tee-pees on the property and traded with the early settlers. Abbott Valley is family owned and operated. We live here and are available to answer questions to help make your vacation a memorable experience. We have been welcoming guests for 25 years. Many return year after year, having 'chosen' one cabin or another as theirs, putting their roots down, if only for a week or two, so they can enjoy time with each other in a beautiful, serene setting.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our location is an ideal base for exploring Glacier National Park, the Hungry Horse Reservoir, Whitefish, Kalispell, Bigfork and all that the Flathead has to offer.
