About the property

Set on 20 acres this country home will sleep 6 with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths

This farmhouse was restored and first put in VRBO rental service in September 2014. Just North of Whitefish about 9 miles just before Mile Post 137. The house is one of two on 20 acres set on the Stillwater River, so you can float down the river right to the poperty (see photo of border collie sitting on dock in river.). I have 4 kayaks you are welcome to use. We are about 10 minutes to downtown and 20 minutes to the ski resort. The home is fully furnished and equip with 3 bedrooms, with 2 queen beds and 2 extra long twin beds, and 2 full bathrooms. All beds were purchased new in 2014 and are high quality. Also contains a small crib and booster chair for infant. Covered parking for one vehicle next to house and large gravel area will accommodate several more.

Perfect Family Experience

  • 5 of 5

We live in an old farm house so this really felt like home! Love the layout of the farm. The kayaking down the river and at Stillwater Lake was amazing. The coffee...fabulous! Jim is a down to earth lovely man who took great care of us. We plan to come back next year! This will be our annual trip. There is an air conditioner that can be put in and suggest putting it upstairs as it does get a little warm up there in the summer. The stairs are steep, but our 3 year old granddaughter did fine. Also, be deer aware! They are everywhere on that hwy. They have the right away so drive carefully.

Perfect home base!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home for our vacation! We walked in to a clean house with fresh flowers on the dining room table. Even though Glacier National Park is a 40 minute drive, the town of Whitefish is charming and a special "home base". We will be back and definitely recommend this property!

Perfect Summer Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from staying 5 wonderful days in this cute Farmhouse in Montana. We so enjoyed our time staying here and we were very sad to leave the area. All the reviews were 100% accurate. We have rented quite a few homes from Homeaway and we have never had such a great host before. We had 4 adults, 1 teenager and 3 dogs (1 medium size and 2 smaller dogs) and we all had plenty of space.

The kitchen and bathrooms were very well stocked. Anything you could possibly need is there. Perfect place to go visit Glacier, Flathead Lake and the surrounding Whitefish area. Jim helped us get the kayaks upstream which was really fun to do we saw eagles, cows, deer, and hawks. We saw deer every night out in the front yard.

If we are in this area again we would definitely stay here again!!!

Perfect location! Wonderful accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem! We rented this cabin for a week and it was PERFECT for our diverse group. We had 6 people in our group and 2 dogs and there was plenty of room. The house was immaculate and the kitchen and bathrooms were well appointed. The 2 showers/baths had the most delicious smelling shampoo and conditioner and soft, bright white towels. The beds were really comfortable, much better than most hotels. We have stayed at a lot of VRBO's and this is on the top of our list for cleanliness, location, and that genuine welcoming feeling.

Jim (owner/host-with-the-most) provides guests with 5 kayaks for an opportunity to enjoy the surrounding lakes and the Stillwater River (which flows through his beautiful property) at no extra charge. In fact, he encourages it! He will even drive you to the river access a short drive north where you can launch the kayaks and float right to his private dock. It's really so beautiful, relaxing, and EASY!!!

If you are in the area, treat yourself and stay here. You will not be disappointed!!!

Very pleasant and comfortable home in a beautiful wooded setting.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week between Cristmas and New Year. Jim's home is charming and welcoming. All amenities were provided, including beer, wine, and even snow shoes! It truly felt like home away from home. We would definitely stay there again in any season!
