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

Great place in Kalispell

  • 5 of 5

We spent several days at the Apple Tree House and it worked out really well for us. It was close to our meeting place and to downtown. We enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants and stores, to our meetings, and around the neighborhood in the mornings. The house is very nice and well-kept. It had plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Having a living room to use each evening was an added blessing for our time in Kalispell. We would definitely do it again and highly recommend the Apple Tree House.

Great base for a family week in Glacier

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week-long family vacation, five adults and two kids (9 and 12), and it was a great home base for us. Plenty of room for everyone, including a bathroom on every floor, and very comfortable common areas. We cooked every day in the kitchen or out on the grill and had everything we needed. The WiFi, cable TV, laundry, and security system all worked perfectly and were very convenient. The neighborhood is charming and convenient... we even happened to be here for the Northwest Montana Fair, including a parade down Main Street just a couple blocks from the house!

Comfortable house, perfect location in Flathead Valley

  • 5 of 5

The historic Apple Tree House was ideal for our family's summer vacation in Flathead Valley. With its central location, we could reach Glacier Park's west entrance in 45 minutes, Whitefish in 25 minutes, and Bigfork and Flathead Lake in 20 minutes. The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood of Kalispell within walking distance of downtown, including a few businesses that have been around for more than 60 years: Moose's, a pub with terrific pizza and Missoulian roast beef sandwiches; and Norms News, famous for its malted milkshakes made at an old-fashioned soda fountain. The house is nicely updated on all three floors, each with its own living room or sitting area. The front porch and back deck (outdoor table/chairs and charcoal grill) also are good places to visit with others or find private "down time." The kitchen is well-equipped, beds are plush and comfortable, towels and sheets are plentiful, and the washer-dryer closet is conveniently located on the first floor. When we needed a minor repair, the house's owners responded right away. The WiFi, cable TV and security system all worked great. Overall, the house was a terrific home away from home!

Wonderful Week in Montana

Very nice location to experience the area around Glacier National Park. House had everything we needed to be comfortable. There were a few things that needed repair, but overall we had a great experience and would definitely stay here again.
