About Judy

My husband and I visited Whitefish for a ski vacation many years ago and we never left. The Rocky Mountain landscape and the friendly down-to-earth residents captured our hearts. We started a business and a family. We opened up "Crestwood Retreat", our vacation rental, to offer our guests the perfect setting to unwind and to explore the area's natural beauty and stunning vistas.

Why Judy chose Whitefish

The property is in an ideal location. It is centrally located to Whitefish Ski Resort, Glacier National Park, and Downtown Whitefish. We are conveniently situated in the historic town of Whitefish - just a 3/4 mile from downtown. The town offers visitors a low key atmosphere and a variety of fine restaurants, charming shops, unique galleries, and nightlife.

What makes this house unique

Crestwood Retreat is a "home away from home" with all the creature comforts. Guests love to watch the "community whitetail deer" in the backyard and the numerous bird feeders surrounding the home attract a wide range of species.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is beautiful & so well equipped for every need. We came stressed out & tired and left so relaxed & happy. The house is exceptionally clean & comforting. The little critters outside kept us entertained.

Perfect place, perfect host, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Whitefish is magical. And, the stay at Crestwood Retreat made it even more so. A wonderful house, beyond expectations for your average VRBO rental. House layout is perfect for a big group that enjoys hanging out together (open concept, big island, large dining table). Plenty of room for boots, coats, etc in a cool front foyer. Beautiful garage to keep the car and skis safe. Finishes to the house are first class (tile, woods, etc). Three different ways to make your coffee (drip, Keurig, & french press) should give you some idea on how well the house is equipped. Furniture and beds were incredibly comfortable with lots of blankets, pillows, etc. Steam shower made finishing the ski day relaxing. Wildlife out the back door entertained us. And to top it all off, a host (Judy) who was friendly, welcoming, and has thought of everything a renter might want. We will keep it on the top of our list for future stays.

Ideal location to be close to Kalispell and Glacier National Park

  • 5 of 5

The house was charming and spacious for our family of four. We spent time in the local town, Whitefish Lake, Columbia Falls, Kalispell, and hiked around the Glacier National Park. The central location made our visit enjoyable and the house added to the pleasant trip. It was stocked with towels, laundry detergent, and all the bath toiletries from Costco which made it feel like home for us. We enjoyed the backyard grilling and appreciated the prompt response from Judy when we needed more supplies and another propane gas tank. Thank you again for making this place feel like a second home. You've managed to maximize the house storage and space yet keep it well maintained with nice decor and quality. We look forward to another visit to Whitefish, Montana again next year!

Beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a wonderful home. The house is extremely well provisioned with everything you need in your home away from home. Everything was a 10 out of 10. We could not have been happier with the choice we made.

Wonderful Clean Home Near Wildlife

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this retreat. The home was spotless, beds were very comfortable, and the location was fantastic. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the birds, pheasant and deer in the meadow. We were very close to downtown Whitefish, but in a quiet neighborhood so you have the best of both worlds. We were only about 40 minutes from Glacier NP (which is not to be missed!) and only about 5 minutes from the lake beach, which the kids enjoyed throwing rocks into and playing in the sand.

Judy was wonderful and next time we are in Whitefish we will definitely be staying here!

Hammer Family

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome from the first step in the door until we left. Judy is great to work with and helpful. Very clean, comfortable, well supplied home. We had deer, turkeys and pheasant visit us at the back door. Loved the showers, especially the master shower that is a steamer. Nice quiet neighborhood that is convenient to town and restaurants. We loved the BBQ place - Piggy Back - which is about a half mile away from the home. (Great take out.) We will definitely come stay at this house again. Highly recommend it!!
