The single most enlightening piece of knowledge you need to be a happy Kalispellian is that you must, at all costs, spend as much time outside as you possibly can. Right in your own backyard are some of the most beautiful acts of nature the world has ever known. The water-carved rock formations, the churning turquoise-blue waters, and the stunning land formations of Glacier National Park are a good place to start. Then, there's Whitefish Mountain Resort, the Hungry Horse Dam, and the Blacktail Mountain Ski Area. Not too far off is Yellowstone National Park, and then of course Canada's natural beauties aren't too far either. If you miss these amazing sights, then you will be doing yourself a great, great disservice. Of course, you can do much more than just look.
Hiking, biking, boating, off-roading on some kick-butt ATV trails, or just sitting by the lake, these are the best ways to spend a typical day in the Kalispell area. As far as convenience goes, everything you could ever need can be found right here in Kalispell, a rare trait among Montana's small mountain towns. There is plenty of shopping at the mall and around local shops. There are grocery stores, cafes, pizza places, churches, a pharmacy, a spa, a pub & casino, occasional live music, as well as plenty of riverside parks and golf courses. And, the price tag on Kalispell property rentals isn't too bad either.
To live in the paradise of the great outdoors, you can pay anywhere from $500 to $1,500 a month. At the lower price point, there are some really nice little cabins, duplexes, townhouses and cheap apartments for rent. At the higher price point are nice, big rental homes with some of the most beautiful yards you will ever see.
When it comes to amenities, Kalispell rentals offer just the bare essentials. Laundry facilities and parking are the most you can expect from most apartment rentals in Kalispell. However, many rental homes, cabins, and duplexes for rent come with amazing landscapes, gardens, and even fruit trees. Plus, just about any property rental you find will be a stone's throw away from one of the many waterfront parks and golf courses. It just doesn't get any better than that.
Need a pet friendly apartment for rent? Well, cast and dog friendly apartments can be hard to come by. However, many rental homes and smaller apartment buildings are "pets negotiable". It may take a few phone calls, but you are sure to find a handful of pet friendly pads around town, especially if you're travelling with a cat or smaller dog. Big dogs will need to be on their best behavior to win over local landlords, though.
So, that's the Kalispell life for you. Happy home hunting!
