About Wendy Barton

We wanted to share this beautiful property with others that have brought us so much joy over the years. My husband and son and I raised 17 sled dogs here and considered ourselves recreational mushers. Now the dogs are in heaven, our son graduated from college and we are semi-retired.

Wendy Barton purchased this estate in 2000

Why Wendy Barton chose Whitefish

It is a perfect setting to recharge your batteries and leave the stress of the world behind. The seclusion, the wildlife, the scenery and all the recreational activities.

What makes this estate unique

The property is so close to town but feels like it is in the wilderness.

Hospitality that felt like home

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning Wendy made us feel right at home. There was a fresh bouquet of flowers, treats and huckleberry iced tea waiting for us on a hot August Day.

The accommodations were very comfortable, the kitchen was stocked with spices and cooking staples, the deck offered a nice area to relax, and the hot tub was a perfect way to end the day. But what was really wonderful about this home was that it felt very private and quiet while still very close to town. And the master suite felt like a getaway in itself with the beautiful picture window with a wooded view and a private balcony.

Wendy was available whenever we had a question or needed something with the home. Thank you, Wendy! Overall it was a very welcoming home and we had a hard time leaving.

Wonderful home base for Glacier Nat'l Park visit

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at the "Wright Paradise" last week, and it was just the perfect space for us! Plenty of space for 2 families, with room to all be together for meals and in the evening but also with great spots to have some quiet time (the "game room" is awesome!). We really appreciated having the hot tub to relax in each night after full days of hiking in GNP. The kitchen was very well-stocked, with everything we needed for meal preparation (including many spices). Wendy is a fabulous host; she is friendly, gracious, and attentive to every detail! We would definitely recommend staying at this property.

Wrights Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with VRBO and Wright's paradise was fantastic. Whitefish was a great base for our trip -around 25miles to West Glacier Entrance. We enjoyed our accommodations immensely. The outdoor space was perfect for unwinding after our daily excursions and ended every night in the Game Room!! Wendy was a wonderful host! We can't wait to go back!!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Wright property was great. Plenty of room for our group of 3 couples. It was an easy ride to Whitfish as well as Glacier. We really enjoyed relaxing on the deck after our days in the park. We also enjoyed our 4 legged visitor even though it was not a bear. Thanks Wendy for sharing your property.

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The home is in a great location, just outside of Whitefish. Wendy prepped everything to perfection and our family had a fantastic time enjoying the hot tub and gigantic back yard. The home is spacious but still still cozy and we all had a great time. Wendy is a fantastic host. Highly recommend!

A beautiful home in the woods. We enjoyed the multi levels and and all the decks. So quiet! I like to cook, so I really liked the big kitchen. A great home away from home.
