About Martha & Neil Odegard

Our family originates in this area. Dad was born at the historic Bull lake Ranger Station in 1920 and mom born and raised in Troy. We feel very fortunate to be able to live here in what we feel is our heaven on earth.

Martha & Neil Odegard purchased this house in 2010

Why Martha & Neil Odegard chose Troy

This home provides comfortable housing for those attending events at our well known beachfront property #450408- reserved often a year in advance for special events - especially weddings, family reunions, class reunions and company gatherings.

What makes this house unique

Many families reserve all our housing and our beach front for a special week together. Always fun and hard to leave.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay. We were guests of a wedding held at the lake, close enough to walk but far enough to not be bothered by noise. Good for kids lots of toys inside and out. Unfortunately the area had a lot of smoke due to wild fires so we cut our stay short. The owners were very nice.

We were so thrilled with everything.

  • 5 of 5

We were just thrilled with the space of your beautiful home. Plenty of room for all of us and we did not miss one item that we needed. Plenty of towels, linen, etc. the kids and grandma Anna had a wonderful time on the scooters. Thank you for stocking up the toy box for them too. I'm surprised and pleased to find your home available for us. We would love to come back next year. The turkeys every morning was awesome and to see us out today were a buck, doe and more turkeys. So awesome. Thank you. The Ellsworth's

Great place to visit and stay!

  • 5 of 5

The place was very comfortable, had spacious living room, large kitchen, and multiple bedrooms and beds for several family members. The area is beautiful and serene scenery, and close to Bull Lake. We enjoyed several hikes, blueberry picking locally, and just being out in nature. We saw several turkeys, in the yard, and deer nearby. Close to Kooteniah Falls, Yaak Falls, and Ross Cedars.

Wonderful home, gracious owners, and pristine location

  • 5 of 5

It's actually better than it looks in the listing. The location is beautiful and peaceful. We saw many deer and hummingbirds on the property from our window. My kids loved rollerblading and playing basketball on the smooth driveway. The home was very neat and clean. Martha and Neil are friendly, helpful, and our overall stay was even more relaxing than we expected.

Wonderful, comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

We came from Oregon, Arizona and southern Montana to a wedding reception that was held across hwy 56 lakeside. This was close enough to walk to if we wanted. Far enough away to be very quiet. The home was set up so we could all sleep comfortably and share time with each other when we wanted. Set up nicely for large family's and great for children. I would recommend this home for any large family.

Fabulous home for family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation at Bull Lake, Montana!!

This home was an absolute score for our large group of adults and children. The grassy front yard was a big hit, plenty of kick-ball games were played. Basketball hoop and large concrete flat driveway got lots of use with side-walk chalk and scooters. The view out the front of mountains and trees is breathtaking and peaceful.

Now to the nice!! Neil and Martha you have a beautiful rental!!

Large kitchen with all the necessary amentites, very well equiped. Plenty of seating between the dining room table and picnic table outside.

Large living room with comfy sofas and a big screen TV with classic videos available.

Bedrooms were perfect for our group of 12 (6 adults and 6 kiddos).

Bathrooms are beautiful with plenty of towels available.

This area is so much fun to visit. This is our second time to Bull Lake and we are definatly looking to visit again. Hoping this home will be was perfect. Thank you so much Neil and Martha!!
