Life in Columbia Falls

Mountain magic and valley bliss, long summer days and deep fluffy winter months. There is something magical about living in this northeast corner of the Flathead Valley, Montana. This is the edge of the wilderness, where the sparkling Flathead River flows from Bad Rock Canyon and meanders along the edge of Columbia Falls, where home town hospitality and original small town flare are the norm.

The people here are vibrant and passionate about their good fortune to call this home. They spend their free time getting out there and into the great outdoors. Life here is adventurous and neighborly, slightly affected by the weather, and can be absolutely breathtaking whenever you choose it. Our forests, fields and fresh air offer endless recreation year round.

Although Columbia Falls and the surrounding smaller communities are at the edge of wilderness, we are not without our comforts. Locals enjoy a brewery and distillery, have three summer open air markets, and see live music at indoor and outdoor venues. Our growing array of restaurants offer incredible quality and delicious local fare, and there is a brand new anchor hotel to complement the array of cabins, lodges and vacation rentals in the area.
