Lakeside Cabin Rental Photos and Description

A place to call home while enjoying Montana's wonderful outdoors, this cozy log cabin is in its natural wooded habitat yet close to city amenities. Walk out your door to your own private boat dock right on Flathead Lake.... Bring your water toys! Great views of Big Mountain ski area to Glacier Park to Bigfork & the Missions Mountains. Central location on Flathead Lake's west shore south of Lakeside, this one bedroom, cozy log cabin has a queen bed, kitchen, shower, woodstove & a futon couch to sleep 4 comfortably. No boat of your own? We also have a canoe and 2 kayaks available for your use!!! Owners live in the house on the adjacent lot with separate boat dock.

If you are looking for a peaceful get-a-way or an 'on the water' sporting water vacation.....This Flathead Lake location has it! With your own boat dock out the door, there is plenty of room for your water toys! Flathead Lake is like a small ocean, lots of wide open space for everyone! If the mountains are for you - Blacktail ski area is minutes away or pack your lunch & hiking boots to test the trails of Big Mountain, only 40 minutes drive. In Winter, both areas offer great snow skiing! Just two miles to the town of Lakeside, stop to enjoy fine dining, fun shops, the local bars, boat cruises from the bay. Cherry season is the end of July, first part of August - orchards are within walking distance! The cabin is minutes away in both directions, from Polson & Somers Bay, too.

Head north to Glacier National Park, 40 miles, (hiking, scenery, wildlife, lakes), with a stop at the water slides along the way for the young-at-heart! For the culturally inclined, BigFork has the Summer Playhouse with different live shows nightly, only 20 minutes by car. Fine dining, quaint shops, museums & the marina are also attractions. Check out the Flathead Valley for golfing, fishing, hunting, water recreation,boating, tubing, marinas, horseback riding, hiking, Montana wilderness, downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, fine dining - all out your back door or a short drive away!

We are native Montanans, Joe is a CPA, I am a retired Insurance Agency owner. We have invested in farms & ranches for the past 20 years. Between us we have 8 children, ages 12 to 32.

Melanie Vankoten- Eve purchased this cabin in 2005

Both Montanan natives, we moved from the eastern side of the state to the Valley many years ago. Living in Whitefish & Rollins before settling in Lakeside, we decided Flathead Lake is our favorite place to be summer or winter. The views are amazing in any season, the lake an ever-changing tapestry with wind, snow & ice, sunshine & blue skies, fog, rain, sunrises & sunsets. We are on the lake for summer fun but also close to ski areas in the winter....

WOW! Montana at its finest! The Flathead Lake is amazing area .... whatever the season, the views change daily! Central location for you to base from while you enjoy your summer/fall/winter vacation plans.

Flathead Lake Simplicity

A much belated review, we had the pleasure of staying here for a week about 2 months ago -- catching the very tail end of the best summer had to offer! The setting was simple, serene + beautiful. Melanie + Joe are great, accommodating + thoughtful hosts! Unfortunately, we did not have the opportunity to spend time together because of scheduling conflicts.

The cabin was clean + well appointed (minus a few kitchen items that maybe only we hardiest of cooks need while vacationing). We really enjoyed the access to the small paddle boat + spent quite a bit of time on the lake the first few days! Reading while sitting out on the patio with a cup of coffee set us out on the right tone every morning + a glass of wine compliments of the host at sunset ended every day perfectly.

We really enjoyed the Vitamin Cottage for groceries in Kalispell on our way in from the airport. Day trips to White Fish, Big Fork + Glacier were incredible! We can't wait to go back.

Thanks Mel + Joe!

Melanie & Joe,

Thank you for renting your Lakeside cabin to us on our recent trip to Montana! The setting on the lake is fantastic and our stay on Flathead lake was very enjoyable. Your cabin was clean, quiet and very comfortable. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the deck overlooking the lake and the sunsets were absolutely beautiful! We also spent some time on the dock after dark star gazing and were blown away at how much more are visible compared to the city. The close location to the town of Lakeside was very convenient for groceries and dining and other activities.

Thanks again!

Dan & Alisa

My wife and our 5 month old daughter were looking for a nice place to spend the 4th of July weekend and this cabin was a perfect spot! We enjoyed the fireworks on the first night from the dock. We were a little worried about the noise from the fireworks for our daughter and lab, but the cabin was nice and quiet for them. Our friends joined us with their boat and lab as well. Afternoons were spent on the dock and it was great to have the kayaks to paddle around the bay. Although we didn't want to leave, Lakeside is so close that the few trips we had to make into town were super easy. The owners are close enough to answer any questions, but also left us to enjoy the cabin on our own. We would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a relaxing and fun-filled time on the lake.

Fall Flathead Lake Cabin

This cabin is a real gem. My expectations we exceeded on all factors. This is a stones through from Flathead Lake. You have the relaxing ambiance of the waves on the beach. It is located in close proximity to all the Flathead Valley offers including Glacier Park and Big Mountain and Black Tail Ski areas.

Summer fun in Glacier country

Just got back from a marvelous stay at Flathead Lake. Mel and Joe were great hosts, assisting us with various things, and even providing a great welcoming basket of goodies for us to enjoy! The location is pristine, and in the best spot on the entire lake. Town of Lakeside is full of friendly, helpful, and modest people. No elitism here. Just hard working people trying to assure your pleasure, while visiting this piece of heaven. Hiked Glacier National, a short 45 minutes away, and saw the beautiful town of Whitefish, and Kalispell. Whitefish lake is a must also, and can be reached in 30 minutes from the cabin. Tamarak Brewery in town is great. We purchased a growler and filled it with a fresh new brew every couple of days. Pulled our boat to Flathead, and the dock and facilities at this cabin are wonderful with great mooring, dock lights, and great ladder to lake providing for wonderful late afternoon swims. Can't imagine going a year without returning to this special place. Oh, and buy the way, returned with over 25 pounds of Mackinaw fillets in the cooler. What fun!
See you all next year........
