A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with a special needs child who needs a comfortable, safe bedroom any time we stay away from home. The guest house was exactly what we needed! Quiet, private and beautifully appointed with everything we needed for our three-day stay in Montana. The big open kitchen/dining/living area was great for keeping an eye on the kids, and the mattress in the master bedroom was so comfortable we overslept every morning. Our oldest son loved roaming the big open fields, climbing trees and observing the night sky with his telescope from the back deck. Owner Craig built this house for his family, it's obvious from the careful details and beautiful custom finishes that it was a labor of love. It was a perfect home base for our Montana adventures, and we will certainly stay again if we ever make it back to Kalispell!

Perfect Montana getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property is so welcoming...the home is clean and well maintained. The neighborhood is super quiet and beds are warm and comfy -- we slept well. All the extras have been thought of in this rental home. We enjoyed walks thru this friendly neighborhood -- complete with a book swap station. The owners are very pleasant. It's just a short drive to Glacier National Park. We also enjoyed a quick trip up the road to visit Big Fork and Whitefish. I will definitely stay here again the next time I visit Big Sky country!

This place was perfect for us!

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 6 swing dancers who were in town for an event and basically just needed a place to crash for the night and clean up between workshops and dances. The space was perfect and we never once felt crowded, even though the 6 of us shared one bathroom and two bedrooms. It was a lovely place, peaceful, and just about 10 min from Kalispell. My only complaint was that "if" the oven worked, we weren't able to figure out how to turn it on. The microwave apparently is also a convection oven, but after food being in there for 20 min at 400 degrees it was still cold. We were just trying to reheat some food that we brought with us, but I can see that being a possible nuisance for future guests trying to cook something from scratch. Other than that, we really loved staying at the guesthouse and would consider staying there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for responding. We really appreciate your comments. It sounds like you might have used the convection instead of hitting the microwave start button The oven does work and has a computer with the same start function as the multi unit, as they are the same brand. I'm sorry that happened to you. We are available by cell or check in with us at anytime. We would have been happy to guide you through the start procedure. Thanks and come back and see us anytime!

Great place, but a heads up on the sleeping

  • 5 of 5

This house was an amazing value. It was very clean with great beds and a nice bathroom. Kitchen also had nice new appliances. I don't think you could ever stay somewhere this nice for 100$ a night. I feel badly saying anything negative, so this is not really a complaint, but a heads up. Perhaps I even missed this when I read about the place on VRBO. Here is the deal-there are 2 queen beds and I thought a pull out couch. However the couch is not a pull out and it took us about 20 minutes to find the camp cots in the master bedroom. These are really cots too--just canvas, no mattress or anything. There may have been a blowup bed but we did not see anything to blow it up with. My 4 teenagers went into battle mode about who slept where. My only suggestion to the host (as they know we were a party of 6) would have been to have either the cots or the blowup bed made up so when we arived it wouldn't have been such a frenzy to figure it out and get things set up. Otherwise this is a really really nice place and a great location for Kalispell, Whitefish and Glacier. As I said, maybe I missed it in the details, and I feel bad complaining, because the rest of the house the neighborhood, location, and price were fabulous. I would stay there again-I would just our camping mats for the kids!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the honest review. I appreciate it when I can make changes to meet the expectations of our guests. I have added where the cots and extra beddings are located to the bedroom descriptions. It is always our desire to make everyone's stay perfect and we try to be available if guests should have questions or need anything. We are always just a phone call away. I am happy that over all you loved our fabulous little guest house. We hope to see you again soon. Craig and Susanne
