Renovated fifties lake house. Built by the local car dealer to be the jewel of Flathead Lake. As the lot was split and a single-story home built in front, we do not have lake access. We do have fantastic views from our perch 100 yards from the lake.

Lake opportunities are a minute's walk away:

SK Marina--is 400 yards away, visible from our back door. They offer boat put in, dock slips, jet ski/boat rentals and scenic lake cruises. vpwhite@csktgaming.com (part of Kwa Tuk Nuk Best Western 883-3636) i

Glacier Raft http://www.flatheadraftco.comis one driveway further down towards Polson, Here you will find daily white-water fiver trips, chartered fishing, sea kayak and paddle board trips and instruction. Flathead raft also rents sea kayaks and paddleboards for your own use. Flathead Raft Company P.O. Box 1596, Polson MT, 59860 www.flatheadraftco.com 800.654.4359 or 1-406-883-5838 e-mail frc@flatheadraftco.com

Only a little further--a two minute drive-- will get you to Flathead Lake Marina 50230 HWY 93 South, Polson Montana 59860 (406) 883-0999. They rent boats and water toys to pull behind. They also rent jet skis.

Beotchler Park is ½ mile (ten minutes walk) east. The Park has a picnic area, swimming, showers, zero-entry beach for young swimmers, horseshoes, volleyball, concessions, paddleboat rentals, Port Polson Players live summer theatre.

Polson Bay Golf Club--the largest course in the area (27 holes) and only the course directly on the shore of Flathead Lake--is 1/4 mile from our door. Summer rates are nine holes for $28 or 18 for $48. Two other courses are within a20 minutes drive. Nine more courses are between 45 minutes and 1 1/2 hours drive. All totaled, there are 216 holes of beautiful, challenging golf in the area.

At 'home' you will find the lake ever-present. The dining room and living room flow together into a spacious, great room. A row of picture windows run the entire lake side of the house offering splendid views of Polson Bay. In the dining area, a wood Murphy bed rests in the original built-ins. A dining table, seating 8, overlooks the water. A giant, cozy sectional defines the living room making it the perfect place to relax for a movie, game, book, or to watch the weather moving in over the lake. We provide cable TV, high speed internet, free long distance, DVDs, games and a small varied library, including children's books.

One bedroom is very large (12' x 12') with a reading nook, lots of closets and two lake-view windows. The other patio-side bedroom is more modest (8' x 13') with a double bed and a dresser, All our beds are new and our bedding tasteful, selected for high thread count and quality fabric.

The pink kitchen features the original custom refrigerator/freezer and built-in blender and griddle. All modern conveniences —toaster, microwave, coffeemaker, and teapot—are also present. We provide a set of good pots and pans, matching place settings, tasteful silverware and quality bakeware. Everything you need to make, serve and enjoy a great meal is here. We even have a small cookbook library.

The back barbeque deck, with art deco railing, faces the lake and has large eaves, offering ample shade during the heat of the day. Bathed by full sun early in the morning and late in the day this is a great spot to enjoy a quiet breakfast or sip wine and watch night fall over the lake. On the south side of the house, there is a large flagstone garden patio. This patio is the perfect place to work on your tan or read a book. Our lot has ample parking.

A small undeveloped wetlands/woods to the east provides a haven for the wildlife-- deer, raccoon, fox, ducks and geese, doves and songbirds, gulls, eagles, owls and hawks—often spied from our property.

Everything is within walking distance. Polson, the largest town on Flathead Lake offers art galleries, book stores, gift shops, dining, health food, yoga classes, a 2-screen movie theater, Kwa Tuq Nuk Best Western Casino, and several city lake parks.

Within a few hundred feet you will find groceries, banking, gas/car wash, videos, espresso, McDonald's, Ace Hardware, and Pizza Hut.

Burgerville, Polson’s favorite fast food (seafood baskets, burgers, chicken, malts) is directly across the street. The Hot Spot, an excellent, family run Thai restaurant, is 4 doors down.

A designated bike trail runs in front of the house and connects to Polson (west) and the Walmart/Safeway shopping center (east) . A hundred yards north, the old railroad bed has been converted to a 15-mile non-motorized walk/bike path. Several nice biking loops using this path and the country roads south of town are available. We have a few basic bikes.

Pablo Reservoir National Wildlife Area --10 minutes from our doorstep--provides refuge to upland birds and roughly 80,000 ducks and geese each fall.

Hunt Ninepipes Reservoir and the Flathead Reservation. Hunting is available on thousands of acres of State and Salish Kootenai Tribe lands. One hour south Ninepipe National Wildlife Area offers even more great habitat and nearby hunting. Your dogs are welcome (just keep the Beggar's Lice and mud outdoors).

We are located on the Salish/Kootenai reservation which offers great sightseeing from the 114 year-old Pow Wow at Arlee to the moving frescoes at St. Ignatius mission, to the National Bison Range. The stunning Mission Mountain Wilderness has dozens of lakes and offers great day hikes and fishing.

Near Arlee (50 miles south) the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas offers another singular spiritual experience.

Glacier National Park, 73 miles north is a great one-day adventure. Finally, you can easily drive around Flathead Lake (105 miles) in a day, with plenty of time to enjoy the many quaint towns, bays and state park beaches along the way.

Our philosophy as landlords is to provide excellent, high-quality accommodations with an eye for detail and beauty. There is a $500 security, damage and cleaning deposit. The deposit is fully refundable if the unit is well cared for and clean at check out.

Excellent Rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our four year old son, and I had the chance to vacation in this lovely home for a week. We could not have been happier with this rental. From the amazing, truly functional, vintage 50's kitchen (which I adored!), to the views, to the amount of space in the rental, to the selection of books & DVD's on-site, to the fluffy towels - this rental has it all. You only need bring your toothbrush :) The rental owners were very easy to work with, and were available for questions. This rental is centrally located with an amazing view of Flathead Lake. This rental is within walking distance of restaurants and grocery stores. If you are staying in Polson and would like a fully-equipped, comfortable, and truly wonderful rental, this one is for you!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here a couple times and it is a great place to stay. The owners are very nice and considerate and the house is very clean and well kept. The location is very convenient and the deck that overlooks the lake has an awesome view with a BBQ. Will definitely stay there in the future.

One of a kind

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults and 2 kids) spent 3 great nights. We have stayed at dozens of great vrbo properties and this will always be remembered. Too many details to list but everywhere you look you will find another treat. The one thing I will name is the griddle, makes the best pancakes ever. Thanks for the great stay! We will be back!

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

I had not rented with VRBO before and was a bit nervous. But this upper unit is a gem on Flathead Lake! Very spacious, clean, and comfortable (including the murphy bed which I slept on). Owners have thought of everything a traveler may need and answered all of my questions. Thank you for a great stay!
