About Scott Huckeba

13 years ago we moved to Kalispell to settle down and raise a family. We love it here and feel very privileged to live here. We remolded this home ourselves. During our vacation rental season we live in the mother-in-law apartment on the highway side of the house (separate entrance and driveway). So we are close if you have any needs. Please feel free to enjoy yourselves.

Scott Huckeba purchased this house in 2007

Why Scott Huckeba chose Kalispell

This house is great for groups of 10-30 people. With 7 bedrooms and other sleeping spaces everyone can stay under the same roof affordably. There is a large great room where many can gather or there is a smaller living room for cozy conversations. Located a few minutes from Kalispell this makes a great home base for exploring the Flathead Valley.

What makes this house unique

We are very blessed to have this big, beautiful home. Many a family gathering we have hosted here and hope you will also enjoy this lovely space.

Wonderful place for our family reunion!

  • 4 of 5

The Lariat Lodge was a very nice place to have our family reunion! We had 22 people there and it accommodated us all very well. The place was clean and the beds were comfortable. That is a major plus!!! The kids loved the little nooks under the stairs! The only negative thing I would say about the place is that there were a few things in need of repair and towels and wash clothes for the kitchen were sparse. The kitchen was very well stocked though with all kinds of pots and pans and whatever we needed to cook for a large group. Great access to Glacier, Whitefish and Flathead as well! All were only 20-30 minutes away. We never ran out of things to do.

Great property for large groups!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house, tho oddly laid out, is PERFECT for large groups. Several areas for a quiet break from the crowd and common areas are very comfortable. Wheather cooking, playing board games, or just visiting, this house feels like a home. Mrs. Huckabe is a gracious woman who allowed us to pick some of the raspberries out back & never bat an eye, no matter how loud we got (there were 3 children in our group). A great time was had by all. I would definitely recommend this property

A perfect house for a group wanting to stay in the same place, like for a family reunion, like ours.

  • 4 of 5

The house was large and furnished completely. They even provided linens, towels, bath soap and TP, and laundry soap. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. We had 8 adults, 2 teen girls, 2 -12 year old girls, 2-9 year old boys. Under the steps is a large area that became the boys fort...then the 12 year olds and teens each took their turn of having that area as their special hideaway. There were lots of card and board games for the rainy day and evenings, Xbox, tennis court w/rackets, basketballs, and never a boring time for any of the age groups.

We all seemed to gather in the large, very well equipped kitchen area. The kitchen was open to a bar with bar stools, a dining area with 2 large tables that worked out well for eating and playing games, and kids crafts on the other one. The room was wide open to a large couch area, with stove and piano. The house had a patio and table/chairs and propane bbq outside, which we used. It was a huge house, plenty of parking, and never felt over crowded even with kids. There was a separate living room with a TV that we never even used as the kitchen/great room area was more fun with everyone in there. But it was good if you wanted a reading or private conversation area.

There are 4 bedrooms, 3 baths downstairs (one bedroom has a Jack and Jill bath,) and easy access to shower if handicapped. Upstairs has a huge bedroom with BIG tub and separate shower, laundry area, plus 2 other bedrooms and a bath plus a "play room" with TV/Xbox and doors leading to porch outside. The kids spent a lot of time in this area too.

The house is perfect for couples, kids, combo. Privacy is good. The house is clean and well equipped. The furniture isn't modern or delicate, but very functional. There are a few things that needed repair, but nothing that was a problem. There are smoke alarms in each room also.

We would stay there again if we went back and had as many people as we did this time. The owner was also helpful via email and returned my questions and deposit in a very timely manner. We all would recommend this house for large groups.
