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 Montana

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.

Best vacation rental in Whitefish

Judy misses nothing in making this house feel like home. The pictures don't do it justice. Everything is first class, so comfortable and inviting. No detail is overlooked. What a great place to stay if your destination is Whitefish, Montana!
