My friends and I had an amazing trip to this wonderful Montana location. This house is located about 15-20 min from Kalispell airport, or the towns of Whitefish and Columbia Falls. In my title "off the grid", I don't want to confuse anyone and let you assume you are truly off the grid. There is great cell phone service and WiFi at the house. I mean you are far from city life, and the closest neighbor was about a mile away. Super quiet, very relaxing. Looking for adventure, Glacier National Park was about 30-45min away; we hiked at Avalanche Creek inside the Park.
We stayed for four days at the house. You could literally show up to this house with nothing but the clothes on your back and you would be fine. Toiletries, laundry, hot showers, and there was even canned food and drinks left from previous tenants. We left some as well, so as long as the generosity of food chain continues, you really could just "show up" and start your vacation. Grocery stores were only 15min away, closest would be the Super 1 in Columbia Falls.
The house was well kept. The rooms were fully furnished, linens and towels were in every bedroom and bathroom. All appliances worked perfectly. Kitchen fully stocked with plates, flatware, pots/pans, baking dishes, coffee pot, crock pots; they really had everything! Even cleaning supplies, paper towels, detergents. Furniture was nice/comfortable. Wood burning stove was awesome! We barely ran the central heat, especially when there was baseboard heating in the bedrooms. We made excellent use of the fire pit in the backyard which had log/bench seating around the fire pit. The owners made sure there was wood for both fire pit and the wood burning stove, all stocked up. And there were hundreds of books in the den, board games, playing cards, etc.
If you are looking to get away with your family or a good group of friends, this is the perfect place. We had four guys in our group, each with our own room for sleeping. The house can easily sleep 7+ though, offering the right amount of space for a large group/family.
We had such a great time, now I want to bring my family up for a visit. Many thanks to the owners for keeping in touch with me during the planning of this trip and offering great local advice for the area. I will recommend this place to my family and friends.
