Overview

Whitefish House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Clayton House is the most charming home available in downtown Whitefish and has been featured on the front page of the Whitefish Pilot and in Flathead Living. It was built around 1903 to be Whitefish's 'Southside' First Presbyterian Church. In later years it was converted into a beautiful house and remains that way today. It has been beautifully restored offering refinished, original wood floors, spacious bedrooms with queen beds in each room with the large master suite being on the main floor. There is granite and tile in the bathrooms, a fantastic fully outfitted kitchen with granite countertops and high end appliances, a nice dining room with antique hand made table, and a mud room entering from the back of the house with storage for your gear. There is also a washer and dryer so you can come in after a hard day of playing and get your things cleaned right up.

The location is perfect being just one block to Whitefish hotspots such as Mambo's, Loulas, Pescado Blanco, Swift Creek Cafe, 2nd Steet Pizza, The White room Ski Shop, Glacier Cyclery, and just 2 blocks to Central Ave., the Farmer's Market, Gallery Nights, the SNOW bus pick up and two of Whitefish's best parks on the Whitefish River. It is also located just down the street from Whitefish Lake Golf Club, which also offers cross country skiing in the winter, and The Wave Fitness Center. Hop on your bike and it's just a short ride on the bike path along Whitefish River to City Beach at Whitefish Lake. You'll love being able to get to and from the shops, restaurants, and all that Whitefish has to offer with such ease.

We've tried hard to provide everything you could need to make your stay as comfortable as possible and we think you will thoroughly enjoy your time spent in this charming home. Come spend some quality time in a quality home right in the heart of Whitefish.

About Chap Godsey

MY FAMILY AND I HAVE LIVED IN WHITEFISH FOR 18 YEARS AND ARE HAPPY TO HAVE MADE IT OUR HOME. IT'S SUCH A WONDERFUL PLACE TO LIVE BUT ALSO A WONDERFUL PLACE TO VISIT. COME VISIT AND YOU PROBABLY WON'T WANT TO LEAVE EITHER.

HERE'S A PICTURE OF CLAYTON ENJOYING A DAY AT WHITEFISH MOUNTAIN RESORT.

Chap Godsey purchased this house in 2007

Why Chap Godsey chose Whitefish

YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER HOME IN WHITEFISH THAT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A LOCAL AND ALSO FEEL AT HOME.

What makes this house unique

I THINK YOU WILL REALLY ENJOY THE LOCATION OF THIS HOUSE AND IT GIVES YOU A FEELING OF BEING PART OF THE TOWN. SINCE THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS TO DO HERE THAT WILL TAKE YOU IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS, IT'S NICE TO BE STAYING SOMEWHERE THAT'S CONVENIENT TO EVERYTHING. BEING ABLE TO WALK OUT OF YOUR DOOR AND STROLL THROUGH TOWN IS NOT ONLY CONVENIENT BUT QUITE ENJOYABLE.

YOU COULD CHOOSE TO STAY ON BIG MOUNTAIN, ON THE LAKE, OR A MAYBE A AT CABIN IN THE WOODS, BUT YOU WILL FIND THAT YOU HAVE TO DRIVE TO DO ANYTHING INCLUDING SIMPLE THINGS LIKE GROCERY SHOPPING, DINING OUT, ENJOYING THE TOWN'S NIGHTLIFE, ETC. WHEN YOU STAY AT THE CLAYTON HOUSE, YOU WILL NOT ONLY BE ENJOYING A CHARMING HOME THAT HAS A WONDERFUL HISTORY, BUT YOU WILL FIND IT EASY TO RELAX AND ENJOY WHITEFISH AS WELL.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a terrific stay. We love the house. The comfort and location are perfect.

We enjoyed a snowmobile adventure with Xtreme Motorsports and a wonderful dog sledding experience with Dog Sled Adventures. Jeff and his group(of dogs) were delightful.

We would definately recommend this option to friends and would come back in a heartbeat!



Thanks for everything!

Whitefish stay

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented the Clayton house with a group of friends on an annual ski trip. The home was located in a perfect spot for us as we were easily able to drive 15 minutes to the hill for skiing during the days, and it is so centrally located downtown that it was perfect for going out for meals before and after our ski days. The home is walking distance from a number of great restaurants and pubs. The home was also in great shape and had everything we needed to enjoy our visit to Whitefish.

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I visited Whitefish, Montana for a writing retreat and then a friend came to vacation for a week. We stayed at The Clayton House and it was perfect for us. We decided against a cabin in the mountains and were glad we did! The Clayton House was walking distance to everything in town and was a perfect home base to get to all of our adventures: dog sledding, mountain hiking, Dine and Ski at Big Mountain, and a drive to Canada. Thanks Chap!

Great Location. Comfortable beds.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a girls shopping weekend. It was in the perfect location to walk to all the restaurants and stores in 'downtown' Whitefish. The kitchen amenities were good (nice big coffee mugs) and all the beds were extremely comfortable.

The house would be a bit small for four couples but perfect for a family, singles or maybe three couples maximum.

Would definitely book this house again and Realtor was responsive and easy to deal with.

The Clayton House

  • 5 of 5

Four "Gal Pals" were lucky enough to rent the Clayton House. We have been friends for many years, three from Ca. and one from Idaho. The home exceeded our expectations and the location was perfect. The owners had all the supplies we needed and the home is well equipped. The remodeling the owners did is remarkable. Our stay could not have been better.

Thanks so much to the owners for allowing us to rent this perfect home.

Awesome House and Location!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Clayton House for a week while my niece, her husband, their two children and I visited Whitefish. This was my first experience with a vacation rental and I was quite nervous about it. It turned out to be a great experience. The owner was gracious and answered all of my questions. He has represented Clayton House beautifully on this website. The location is amazing. It is within walking distance to the grocery store, shops and restaurants. The kids were thrilled that the ice cream shop was only one block away! Also, they could walk to the water to feed the ducks each night. The house itself is beautiful and charming. It is clean and well-maintained. The beds were very comfortable! We were pleased with the amenities and felt so at home all week. We were in Whitefish to visit my nephew, his wife and new baby girl. The owner even came by to see if we needed any baby equipment for when the baby came to visit us. That is service! We were all able to get together, as a family, and cook out and enjoy each other's company. We also spent time sitting on the front porch (love the swing!) and just visited and enjoyed the lovely weather. All in all, it was an awesome stay and gave us the feeling of being a part of this lovely community. I highly recommend Clayton House to others. I hope to return there in the future.
