Kalispell is the beating heart of the Flathead Valley. It’s the county seat and commercial core. It’s home to the region’s best hospital and a top-tier community college. It’s where arts, community, and outdoors meet. And, geographically speaking, it’s in the middle of everything Northwest Montana. Kalispell houses for sale offer easy access to:
The North—Whitefish and Canada
Just 20 minutes north of Kalispell, hop on the chairlift at Whitefish Mountain Resort, Northwest Montana’s preeminent ski area. Readers of SKI magazine recently voted Whitefish as the #3rd ski resort in America, plus a #1 ranking for “local flavor” and #2 for “value. And if you keep traveling north, you’ll quickly reach Canada! Just two hours north of Kalispell is Fernie, a quintessential Canadian ski town.
The South—Flathead Lake
The largest freshwater lake of the Mississippi is beautiful to visit and live near. In the warmer months, it’s a popular destination for boaters, sailers, and fishers, but it’s big enough that it never feels crowded. Smaller shoreline communities like Bigfork, Lakeside, and Somers are welcoming and friendly.
The East—Glacier National Park and the Bob Marshall Wilderness
The Crown of the Continent ecosystem encompasses Glacier’s million acres and the Bob’s 1.5 million acres. This is a large, intact, and ecologically robust landscape for animals, including majestic grizzlies and wolves, bighorn sheep and mountain goats, native trout, and so much more. For us humans, there’s more than 700 miles of trail to explore in Glacier alone!
The West—Flathead National Forest and Idaho
The Flathead Valley is nestled in the Rocky Mountain spine that runs up the western edge of Montana. Travel west, and you’ll encounter miles upon miles of national forest lands. Continue on, and when you cross into the Idaho border, you’ll visit charming little mountain towns like Salmon or Stanley. Idaho’s panhandle is known for copious natural hot springs!
