Nestled between tall evergreens and situated against the Swan Mountain Range of the Northern Rockies, sits this lovely craftsman style “Retreat Center.”

This Retreat Center provides 3 private bedrooms; 2 bathrooms; a fully equipped gourmet kitchen; a laundry room; an entry foyer, and a very large great room with wood floors, stone fireplace, and beautiful craftsman windows with views of alpine glowing mountains. Both great room and master bedroom have access to a covered patio and lawn.

The space
Beyond the porch and lawn is a pathway to our waterfall-studded pond. Wireless Internet service and online-streamed Netflix movies are also available to guests on two large flat screened television sets (1 in master bedroom and 1 in great room).

Directly behind the property, guests will find immediate access to mountain trails they may access with a State Land day use permit. And just a few minutes drive away there is access to rafting put-ins along the Swan River. Guests are also invited to share the beautiful surrounding grounds, a lovely waterfall studded pond, tree swings, hammocks, and mountain bike trails.

Our eleven year old son is a wonderful little host and loves to show visiting children all the cool things this property has to offer, especially hunting for Morels in May. Guests may also like to visit with our chickens, and special livestock guardian dogs (just beware of the electric fence), and to sample our fresh eggs. To avoid any conflict with our guardian and companion dogs, and to avoid predation by wildlife, we do not allow dogs or other pets onto our property.

I own and manage vacation and retreat accommodations, farm stays and destination experiences in Northwest Montana.

Prior to my family’s relocation to MontanaI I enjoyed a Public Health career planning, implementing and evaluating a variety of prevention programs in Santa Barbara. I presently work from home, managing my family’s household, property, livestock animals, and our retreat and vacation accommodations. I love to create the perfect space for groups, families, couples, and individuals to break away from their ordinary lives to reconnect with each other and their source of inspiration on our wooded property against the Swan Mountains.

I also love to write and have recently retooled my public health writing skills to write creative non-fiction. I particularly enjoy writing about the natural world and about climate, social and personal change. I am currently working on a memoir that weaves these themes together. I also dabble in Travel Writing.

When not working or at school, my partner, son and I love to go out to eat delicious food, prepare meals together at home, watch good movies or TV series, play board/card games, kayak, bike, ski, and swim.

I love to travel with my family for soccer tournaments, to visit with extended family, and attend writing retreats. Our favorite destinations are in Santa Barbara, San Juan Islands, Hawaiian Islands, Northern California, Colorado, and throughout Montana and the Pacific Northwest.
