Getting around
You really have to have a car of your own.
There is no public transport in the Flathead Valley, there in no Uber or Lyft service, and even taxis are scarce. You can't rely on one being available at the airport when you land, so make advance arrangements.
Once at the home you can of course walk around the neighbourhood, which is quite peaceful. But distances here are big, like all else in Montana, so even nearby Bigfork would be a looong walk along the side of highway.
