BEAUTIFUL LOG HOME ON WHITEFISH LAKE

Whitefish Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 8 -10; Lakefront With Incredible Views

This is a dream home for your family and friends to enjoy on their vacation. Situated right on Whitefish Lake with a dock and a commanding view from the boathouse roof patio, it is hard to beat. It is a log home constructed by nationally recognized contractor Tom LaChance. This home has been featured in both Log Home Living and Cowboy magazine. It has all of the charm and coziness of a log 'cabin' but has the dramatic component of floor to vaulted ceiling windows, three levels of decks, lovely terraced garden of native rock, not to mention a beautiful river rock wood-burning fireplace. Whole log furniture make nights by the firelight very special. People will be calling dibs on the ample window seat for afternoon naps.

It is located on the sunny side of the lake where both sunrises and sunsets are enjoyed. The small round pebbled beach has a 'grandfathered' boathouse...a very coveted and rare thing. There is a gang plank from the stone steps to the roof of the boathouse. The view is awe-inspiring.

Majestic ponderosas frame the home perfectly. The lake colors, reflected light and the perfect composition of these trees cause one to constantly be reaching for their cameras. Did I mention spotting scope? It is a special place for bird watching. Loons, hummingbirds. evening grosbecks, pileated woodpeckers, bald eagles are common sights in season.

The upper deck is an extension of your living space with a propane barbecue and 'cabin' seating consisting of willow and Adorondeck. The deck and grounds are irrigated so in summer there are always gorgeous flowers in pots, hanging baskets and in the terraced rock garden.

On the middle deck is an appealing porch swing ready for rocking your sweetheart or grandchildren. Also, on this level is the brand new hot tub which sits four. It is privately tucked in against a rock wall but the lake and sky view are lovely. Access to the tub is right by the back door which takes you to a large bath complete with a steam shower. The mudroom is right there to hang the wet bathing suits or dry the ski clothes.

WONDERFUL VACATION ON WHITEFISH LAKE - BEAUTIFUL LOG CABIN, AMAZING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful and relaxing vacation in this beautiful and immaculately kept log cabin. The views from the decks, master bedroom, dining room and living room are incredible at any time of day. We loved kayaking especially in the morning when the lake is calmest. The dock is deep and was perfect for our boat - it was handy having our boat ready to use whenever we desired. We enjoyed taking our boat out for water sports and at some point during the day stopping at Whitefish Lake Lodge for a light lunch in their casual outdoor restaurants. Evenings, we took advantage of the hot tub or relaxed on the porch swing with a glass of wine. This end of the lake is especially peaceful and the weather was idyllic if you like hot days and cool nights! The town of Whitefish is a short distance away and we especially enjoy Montana Coffee Traders and Tupelo Grill. We hope we can repeat this vacation.

Owner's Response: I want to thank you for your review of my cabin. I have just re-read the reviews as I take the difficult move to list the Home this spring.
Monte Gilman, the owner of ReMax Whitefish will be my agent. This precious place will be MLS listed on May 9th. I would be grateful for any friends that you could inform about this. It was a pleasure to have your family here. It is just your kind of family that I hope will buy this special place. My vrbo account number is 437661. I will not be renting, but am keeping the vrbo site active so that interested parties can read my description, see the photos, and read the reviews.
Take care.

LOVELY CHALET ON BEAUTIFUL LAKE

  • 5 of 5
We spent four days at this cabin on the lake with our friends from Switzerland after a week of hiking in the National Glacier Park. The setting is fantastic and the lake is gorgeous with its clear, green waters not too cold for swimming (at least for us). We swam, paddled, waterskiied, sunbathed, and hiked in close proximity of the house. Like other guests have described, we did not eat out at all; we just loved staying at home, grilling on the deck and cooking at home. The kitchen is unbelievable; better utensils and glassware than in my own home. There is nothing that you will not find for gourmet cooking. Overall, the house is gorgeous, very stylish and nicely furnished. It does not seem like a rental, based on the quality of the furniture, linen, kitchen ware. The views are superb. Our kids loved the hot tub and being on the water. There are really no negatives. We wish we owned such a beautiful home and would not change a thing about it.

WINTER PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We spent four wonderful days in your amazing home! We were so excited to see in real life what we had anticipated from the great photos you provided. The photos are a terrific indication of what your home is like however they do not do justice to the magnificent views of the lake and tranquility of the peaceful surroundings. We very much appreciated all the amenities - especially the fireplace, hot tub and the steam shower after a great day of skiing and snow shoeing (best snow shoeing trail ever). Your detailed notebook was very helpful in allowing us to make ourselves feel at home. We chose to eat most of our meals at your home even though the Whitefish area is well known for its fine dining. We loved the ease at which your home allowed us to "do as we would do at home". Thank you for your graciousness and hospitality. We would love to come back and test the summer waters.

BEST FAMILY SKI VACATION EVER!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I really struggled to write this review. In my daughters own words "no! don't tell anyone else how awesome this place is, we want to keep it to ourselves !!!"

The house is almost indescribable at how amazing it is. It is spacious yet cozy and the pictures don't even come close to showing how beautiful the property is. We didn't even ski one day inspite of the fantastic powder conditions so we could spend time at this amazing property. When we did ski we couldn't wait to come back, light a fire in the massive fireplace, have a glass of wine and hit the hot tub with a beautiful view of the lake. The house is fully stocked with everything and more then you will need for a fantastic vacation. Susan herself was great to deal with and readily available for any questions. I highly recommend this place for all seasons. Thank you Susan, we will be talking about our vacation at your house for years to come! Can't wait to return as it really felt like home while we were there.

Owner's Response: Lori, It is with a sad, but realistic heart that I begin the process of listing my precious cabin. I know how much you and your family became attached to the cabin. Your daughter particularly really expressed her love for it..... Give her a hug for me.
I am sending my affection your way. If you know of any family that might dream of such a place, please send them to ReMax, Whitefish. The cabin will be listed on or about May 9th.

This log home is extraordinarily beautiful and comfortable. The pictures speak a thousand words.

It is located on the east side of the Whitefish Lake. Majestic ponderosas frame the view of the lake and distant mountains.

There are three levels of decks. In addition, the view and peace can be experienced from the rooftop deck of the boathouse.

There is a hot tub privately positioned on the second deck but open to the view and sky. The grounds are beautifully kept with terraces of flowers and aspens.

With two stories of windows and patios doors off of the great room the views and light off of the water are always with you. There is a river rock fireplace with over-sized log furniture nestled around it. A window seat beckons for an afternoon nap. The dining room table is made of massive timbers with eight old hickory chairs that create a setting for great meals and conversation.

The kitchen is charming and complete. The exposed logs and Butcher block counter make it a pleasure to be in. On the main level is a bedroom with two twin beds and a 4 piece bath.

The loft bedroom has a balcony that extends out over the great room with the unobstructed view out to the lake. French doors can close off the world below. The 4 piece ensuite has a vintage cast iron claw foot tub adored with hand-painted wildflowers....the view from the tub is so amazing.

The lower level has a room with two bunk beds....and the view of the lake. The entertainment room has a large screen t.v. with two great lazy boys and a very comfortable sofa bed. There is a great wood burning stove.

The 4 piece bath has a stream shower. Complete mud room with washer/dryer. On the lower deck is a porch swing.

The upper deck has a large barbecue. Willow and adirondack chairs make the grouping perfect.

There is parking for four cars. For winter renters, all wheel drive vehicles are recommended.

The picturesque and nationally recognized ski hill is only 15 minutes away! Snow mobile trails are only 2 miles away. When the lake freezes, the cross country skiing, skating and ice fishing is just waiting outside the door.

The town of Whitefish has charming shops and a great variety of restaurants. Cultural opportunities are out-standing with the fine art galleries and live theater. And, of course, Glacier National Park is on the doorstep.

Several outstanding golf courses are close-by.

Please no smoking. Please no cats. A dog with conditions.
