Overview

Whitefish House Rental Photos and Description

Log Cabin, 3 Bedrooms+Loft, 2.5 Baths (Cleaning fee included in rate)

This gorgeous custom built Eureka log home is roughly 3,000 square feet and has 3 California King sized beds in three large separate bedrooms, 4 extra long twin beds in the loft area. The master suite is downstairs and there are two bedrooms and one large bathroom upstairs. The home was built in 1998 and features a very dramatic 30 foot vault that words do not properly describe.

This log home is incredibly open inside with two Big Country wood stoves in one gigantic great room that is open from kitchen to dining room to the two living rooms. It is truly an artisan home and has craftsmanlike features thru out. From the huge earth slate kitchen to the gigantic river rock fireplace to the 5 foot wide Wolf stove you will certainly feel right at home as soon as you step foot inside.

The home is also just minutes away from the airport, the town of Whitefish, the ski area, numerous lakes and golf courses and yet you feel completely lost at a secluded lodge when you drive into the home at the back of ten acres and across the street from over 1,000 acres of state owned land. The house sits on the rear corner of a ten acre lot surrounded by woods in all directions with no other home visible from the very quiet and oh so relaxing massive front porch.

The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms with a total of four sinks (two in each bathroom), three toilets (two in one bathroom and one in the master bathroom) a Jacuzzi tub in the master bath and a separate shower in the master bathroom and a combo tub/shower in the upstairs bathroom.

The home has a lodge like feel with a huge vaulted common area that is 30 feet tall and also boasts a very large deck on three of the four sides of the home. There is Wi-Fi for Internet access and two of the three bedrooms have TVs (42' plasma in mstr w/surround snd) with DVDs with 200 channels of satellite. I purposely do not have a tv out in the common area because that is not why you are up there. I try to create an environment for families and friends to commune over the days adventures or recalling memories of fun past stories or a quiet environment to read and relax in.

It is very conveniently located off of Fwy 93 and to FCA airport, 10 minutes to downtown Whitefish, 15 minutes to downtown Kalispell, 20 to 30 minutes to Whitefish Mountain Ski Area and 40 minutes to Glacier National Park.

The home is surrounded by forested land and you will be just across the street from about 1,000 acres of state owned wilderness. What this means to you and your family and friends is total privacy! In the summer you are within 20 minutes of Glacier International Airport, 40 minutes from Glacier National Park, 10 minutes to Big Mountain Golf Course, 10 to Whitefish Golf Courses, 10 minutes to the Whitefish Lake or 30 to the Whitefish Ski Resort. You can walk or mountain bike for miles right from the front door. Or, if you would rather come home and just curl up and watch a movie there is a 42' Plasma TV with surround sound in the master bedroom for a complete theater experience. There is just so much to do in the area!

About Owner

I started my career in a Venture Capital firm and created a Real Estate Investment Company at the age of 23. I have lived out of the country in places like Africa, Spain and Brazil and have spent a lot of time traveling all over the world. I grew up in Darien Connecticut and used to live in San Francisco and now reside near the beach here in Los Angeles. Presently I design and build homes and I am also a LA County Ocean Lifeguard.

Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why Owner chose Whitefish

The property is amazingly located in that it is central to both Whitefish and Kalispell, easily accessable to the airport and most importantly is completely tranquil in its location in the woods. It sits at the back of a 10 acre lot and has another 20 acres of raw land to the North of it and has over 1,800 acres of State owned land on the other side of the dirt road at the end of the driveway. Everything is so close yet you feel completely isolated and hence completely relaxed when you are on this property.

Perfect Log Home In The Woods Near Whitefish, MT

  • 5 of 5

Wow! is the expression that escaped our children's lips when we drove up the tree-lined drive to Bob's Log Home. The house was better than described. We opened the French Doors and walked into a wonderfully large and cozy log home, surrounded by trees and not another home in sight. The two Country wood stoves were kept burning almost 24/7 and made the home warm through out. Cooking on the Wolf was really fun. There was more than enough room for our family, and the kids spread through the upstairs rooms and loft.

Downstairs, the master suite was much larger than it appeared in the pictures. In fact the entire home was much larger and wonderful than the pictures and descriptions.

Bob was fantastic to work with before, during and after our stay. While we did not experience any problems, issues or anything where we needed assistance, we corresponded with Bob throughout our 10-day stay to let him know how much we were enjoying our time in his home.

Whitefish is one of our favorite places to go winter or summer, and now Bob's home has become our favorite place to stay while in the area.

Thank you Bob! Anyone considering Bob's home will not be disappointed.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a GREAT place. My husband and I stayed at Bob's home and we were very happy to be there. Bob was very helpful with the rental and Becky who helps out with the place couldn't be any sweeter than she was. We felt at home at the cabin. The pictures do not do the home justice. The home was very clean and that was a major plus for me.

This home is secluded enough but close enough to the Highway to get to either Whitefish,

great town as well as Kalispell. We felt right at home and we are ready to look at the calendar and pick our days to stay next year. If you stay here you will not be disappointed.

Plenty of room for a large family or a group of friends to stay. We look forward to visiting again and working with Bob and the sweet Becky.

Thank you for letting us into your wonderful hideway and we will be back.

Great Luxuriious Log House Tucked Away in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We had three families and youngsters staying at this marvelous log house for a week. It was everything that was advertised and more. The bedrooms are big with huge California king-sized double beds and plenty of storage space. The loft area is great for kids and can easily accommodate four. Plenty of bathrooms.

This house was immaculate and very impressive both inside and out. The wood cathedral ceiling is spectacular. The kitchen is something to die for with professional level cooking and every amenity you could imagine. Plenty of dishes, silverware, pots, pans, utensils, etc. You could land a plane on the kitchen island. In addition to inside cooking there is large outdoor grill on the deck - perfect for a cookout party. And...speaking of the deck, this one wraps around three sides of the house - wonderful for relaxing and enjoying the setting.

The house is tucked away and surrounded by woods with a fire pit just welcoming a group adventure. We had bonfires several nights. The location is perfect just a short drive to Whitefish or Kalispell and very convenient for driving to the western entrance to Glacier National Park.

Both the owner and the nearby caretaker were extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. They answered our questions promptly and were eager to see that our stay was enjoyable. Bottom line - you can't miss by renting this place.

Exactly What a Montana Log Cabin Should Be

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week at the end of August. We're living in New York at the moment and were looking for a relaxing holiday away from the madness with the chance to experience some beautiful countryside - we hit the jackpot with this place.

The cabin is beautiful and exactly what I had hoped a cabin the woods wood be, much better even than it looks in the pictures. We spent much a lot of our holiday just enjoying the cabin, making the most of the amazingly well equipped kitchen and BBQ and stoking fires in the chilly evenings - AWESOME!

The are is amazing too, Glacier National Park is one of the most beautiful places i've been and couldn't recommend it enough.

Great setting for family gatherings.

  • 5 of 5

Location is so important and this home is close to so much summer fun. There is something for everyone. . . Glacier, lakes, and mountain bike paths. We spent several days in Glacier hiking and exploring and then could come home to a comfortable, spacious home where we cooked great meals in a well equipped kitchen. The table on the porch was well used! Thank you, Bob for sharing such a beautiful home.
