"We stayed in this lovely, well appointed home for a week in June and it was perfect for us, our three boys, and our well behaved dog! Although it was the end of June, the house stayed cool enough for us to leave our kenneled pup inside and the cool evening breezes quickly cooled the house upon our daily return.The home was very clean and tastefully decorated. An extra bonus was that the large yard was fenced in and our dog was able to really stretch her legs in the Montana breezes! The beds were comfortable and the laundry machines modern and in a separate room, so we could run laundry in the house but not hear it much. The master bed and bath is quite large and is on one side of the house while the other two rooms are on the opposite side...great late at night when we wanted to sleep and the kids wanted to stay up and make a little noise!
The owner is very easy to communicate with, which is much nicer than dealing with property managers who are completely disconnected from the property. The home is located a short 20 minute drive to the entrance of GNP, but only 10 minutes before you run into local tourist attractions, adventure guides/rentals, and cute shops. Downtown Columbia Falls is a short 5 minutes away and we highly recommend the Smiths Grocery store with fresh baked goods and a great hot deli counter. Do not miss the Huckleberry shakes at the Huckleberry Patch on the road to GNP...best around! Just as you pull into the street for the rental there are two brown Yurt looking buildings, one has a sign that says "pottery". If you are looking for that perfect Montana gift or keepsake for yourself, stop in! All the pottery is handcrafted by the artist who lives there and she does amazing work! We got beautiful handmade coffee mugs that look like art pieces and her prices are reasonable. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks Nicole for sharing your lovely home with us!"
