Our first hike as residents of Montana took place just a few days after we arrived in our new hometown of Kalispell. We were looking for something in the area that would allow us to get a little fresh air and exercise without a long drive, and we located Herron Park on a map. Only about 10 minutes outside of Kalispell, Herron Park is convenient and has various options for visitors. The area is popular with mountain bikers, joggers, hikers and horseback riders. We saw all of the above except horses but we did see evidence they were there recently! From the park entrance, we followed Notch Trail up to where it met the Overlook Trail, and then we took Overlook Trail to Foy's Overlook so we could see the area from above. If you look at the photo below of the Kalispell vista, you might be ab...

I left for my first Montana morning jog a few days ago, and decided to try a nearby trail that runs along the road. Imagine my happiness as I ran past mules, horses, cows and acres of beautiful land. The air smelled great, and I was looking around and taking it all in. And then I saw it! I am an avid reader, and love to spend some time enjoying a good story. I've only been in Kalispell, Montana for a few days and haven't yet found the library. I just finished reading a book and knew I was going to have to hunt out a new one. So imagine my surprise as I ran down the road and saw a free roadside library! After I ran back to the campground (no house yet!) I showered and then jumped in the car to drive back to the little library, take a photo, leave a book and get a book. Of course I had to...

Sometime in mid-2019, I plan to move from Monroe, NY to Kalispell, MT. This is an entirely new journey for me, in every aspect. I've never lived on the other side of the country. I have never been part of the designing and building process for a brand new home (as a buyer). It's all quite new and exciting. I decided to share the journey for anyone else who might be thinking of doing the same thing. And while I am a licensed associate real estate broker in New York State, I'm not (yet) licensed in Montana. So the thoughts I share are going to be things I learn and experience as a buyer and new Kalispell home owner, not as a real estate professional. So here is part one, which has to do with the first step of the dream. Buying the land. Identify your needsThe most important starting point...

If life goes as currently planned, I will be relocating to Kalispell, Montana sometime in 2019.  Last year my husband and I purchased 27 acres of land in Montana. The land includes acres of meadow, a forested hill, a creek and old logging trail. This picture is taken looking over our meadow towards the neighbor's house. When we originally purchased the land, we were thinking about putting our home on the grassy area. That idea changed once we walked every inch of the property and found we have some amazing views from the top. So next year the house building will start. I intend to share my experiences regarding the home building process, as well as my thoughts about preparing for, and then actually moving to the new state. I will be continuing my real estate career out there, so will al...

Out of the 25 Best Cities to Retire: Kalispell ranked number 11.  For years we have attracted retirees that like an out doors and active life style. With Flathead Lake  - largest fresh water lake west of the Mississippi -, skiing, Glacier National Park in our backyard, golf courses and many other activities, it is no wonder this is a great place for people to move to when looking around the country for a place to retire! What a beautiful fall!! I am looking out my office window at the larch trees dotting the hillsides with color, sun is shining and temps supposed to be in the low 60's the rest of the week. Trying to get some more horse riding in while the weather cooperates. West Valley school, one of what we call "country schools" in our valley, is having a bond election today. It is t...

Saturdays from 9am to 12 is the Kalispell Farmers Market located now at FVCC (Flathead Valley Community College). Gotta be there right at 9 to get a place to park and a chance to buy the best stuff! Got all my tomato plants, herbs and some annuals to put in my garden. This is a much better location than the mall parking lot, lots more visible to those driving by all the sports fields and box stores on Saturday mornings. My hubby joined me at Crossfit Flathead for some tire flipping and sled dragging this morning. He starts the prelim classes Monday night. Such a great group of people and so much variety in the workouts from Coach Buf. Foys to Blacktail Trail had their fundraiser dinner tonight. Fun to see some familiar faces and eat Farm to Market cooked pig out on the lawn at Herron Pa...

What fun! We went to one of the playoff games last night. When did high schoolers start looking like they were 12 years old?? :) Kalispell has 2 high schools and this is the one in our district, also the best basketball team, dare I say. The game was very fun and the cheering section of students even more fun. Some of the guys were in shorts and fur coats leading the gang. Spinning a large beach ball when there were free throws from the Missoula team. The cheerleaders were tiny girls who did a number of acrobatic lifts and throws, impressive. All in all, a fun way to spend a Friday night in the Flathead Valley for $5 a piece.

It is great to drive around the Flathead Valley and see homes under construction and commercial projects happening. Construction has been the hardest industry hit by the economic slow down the past 5 years. Kalispell Regional Hospital is continuing it's expansion project. There are $12.4m in commercial projects on the slate besides the hospital. Hilton Homewood Suites has broken ground near the theaters in Hutton Ranch Plaza - where all the new retail is located in Kalispell. A 40 unit senior apartment complex comprised of 3 levels is projected on property downtown Kalispell.  ​Some excellent news about Kalispell Regional Hospital from Health Grades: the hospital is in the top 5% for patient safety and clinical excellence. #1 in MT for cardiac and #1 in Mt for general surgery. Having ha...

Here is Northwest Montana at its best!   There are many lakes with private property and many lakes that have no private property to buy BUT have access to the public.   THis is just one of the many advantages of living in the Northwest part of Montana!  There is a string of lakes between Kalipsell Mt and Libby Mt called the chain of lakes.  They offer recreation and year round living.  So come enjoy life for the summer, year round  or just for the week-end.  Contact Montana Country Real Estate- for properties that will make you happy!
