About Megan Lester

We've traveled extensively and always choose to stay at vacation rentals. We look for the best ideas and look to bring every positive feature we find to this house. As a result we've created an very unique experience designed to be the best value in the Flathead Valley. This house is hands down where we would stay if we were visiting the Flathead Valley.

Megan Lester purchased this house in 2003

Why Megan Lester chose Montana

It is one-of-a-kind and feels like home. It's just a great place to get together with friends and family and relax. Everyone who stays here tells us it felt like it was their home when they stayed.

What makes this house unique

Great classic Kalispell neighborhood a short walk from anything you could need. All the homes around it are very nice. The huge deck and yard is perfect in summer and other than sleeping you can just about live on the back deck. Within walking distance to about anything you need. Centrally located between Glacier Park, Flathead Lake, and both ski resorts. This house is just perfectly laid out. It's got great shade, stucco siding (which keeps it cool in the summer), beautiful yard and landscaping. Our work often takes us to Kalispell and we often do work in the home office. Great place to relax as well. It's just a perfect home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you again for renting your house to us for our annual "friends trip". We visited, shopped, ate and had a great time, and your house suited our needs perfectly. As you know, there were 8 of us and we did not feel at all cramped or tight for space and we enjoyed coming back to "home base" at the end of a long day hitting the shops. Thanks again! It was perfect for our group

Best ever VRBO experience. Spectacular! Stocked with EVERYTHING needed for our week's stay.

  • 5 of 5

There were no surprises - except the pleasant kind. What do we all want? A hassle-free stay. And that certainly is the case, with this lovely, well-equipped home. It had everything from hair dryers to both Keurig and standard coffee pots, with full kitchen, spices, laundry supplies, you get the idea.

In addition, it is truly comfortable, like home. Plenty of space and separate "living areas" spread throughout the house. The house was superbly maintained. And the owner was at the ready when we called about the heat having accidentally punched some button that turned the A/C on in mid-January.

Best ever VRBO experience.

Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to visit family near Kalispell. We had plenty of room for five women to relax and enjoy this home. We were able to cook our meals in which made it really feel like home. Everything you would need in a kitchen was available. We appreciated the reading material, access to the internet and close proximity to downtown. Even shoveling the walk was enjoyable after a great Montana snowfall. Instructions were easily posted inside the home for how to manage everything. Thank you Meagan for sharing your lovely home with others. We would definitely keep this home in mind with future visits.

Pleasant, well located, comfortable.

  • 3 of 5

Nice place, though the heating is erratic. Either too cold or too hot, we couldn't adjust the thermostat so it was the same temp through the house. Also didn't expect to have to shovel, thought such services would be done before our arrival. Beautiful wood floors.

Owner's Response: Hi, Thank you for your feedback! Sorry about the heat, it is easily controllable by pressing the up or down button on the thermostat...and there's directions printed next to the thermostat. Really this is the first time we've ever had a complaints about that. In terms of snow removal we have someone go and shovel the walks after every storm, but with the record snow falls we've had this year it's possible you beat him to it some days...or he was waiting for the snow to stop. We keep shovels in front and back of the home in case people need them but sorry if you felt you had to shovel. Please never hesitate to call...we are always happy to help.

Lovely home and great owners

The location of this house is perfect for walking downtown and to the mall. We had our father's 80th birthday party at the house and it was perfect. Thank you Meghan and Scott.

My Family and I stayed here when we were in the Flathead Valley for our granddaughters wedding, and we loved everything about this house. What an amazing location, and the house is so nicely decorated and updated. The bathroom on the main floor had just got a new tile surround around the shower, and everything was so clean, just like a hotel. The owners were wonderful to deal with, we will be back for sure!!
