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.

Home away from home!
Our vacation to Montana was incredible and I can honestly say it wouldn't have been the same if we had stayed in a hotel or at a resort. Jim was an outstanding host and staying at his property was fantastic! It felt more like we were staying with an old friend than at a VRBO. The house was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Jim even anticipated what we might need on our adventures (i.e. cutting board for fish) and had it ready for us when we got back. We enjoyed seeing deer in the yard on a daily basis and took advantage of the amenities Jim offered (i.e. kayaking down the river behind his house). Jim offered recommendations for local activities and restaurants to keep us busy when we had some down time between our scheduled activities. My entire family highly recommends staying with Jim on his property. We miss him already and are looking forward to our next visit! Thanks again Jim! Pat Cody and Milly for us.
Cozy Christmas Get-a-way!
It was our cozy cabin in the woods! We arrived a bit late that day and when we pulled in it was a picture perfect setting for our family holiday! The snow was all cleaned away in the driveway and the house was so warm, clean and inviting. There was wine on the counter and beer in the fridge and it was well stocked with the basics. Jim went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable and relaxing! We had such a great time snowshoeing along the river. We would definitely stay there again!
Loved it! Thanks Jim!
Perfect Family Experience
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!
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!
Wonderful setup and fabulous host!
This home is just wonderful....the setup is ideal with everything you could need for a relaxing get away. Jim is a fabulous host who obviously goes above and beyond to ensure his guests are pleased. We will be back!
Perfect Summer Vacation!!!
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!!!
