Overview

Whitefish House Rental Photos and Description

Summer 4BR, 3BA secluded home in private and quiet neighborhood for 30+ days.

Located 4 miles north of beautiful downtown Whitefish, 5 miles from the recreation of Whitefish Mountain Resort and only 30 miles from the West entrance to Glacier National Park, Dreaming Bear Lodge will spoil you in every way.

At over 4,000sf, this luxurious 4bdm, 3-1/2 bath private estate comes complete with a gourmet kitchen with Viking appliances, a great room with river rock wood burning fireplace and soaring 24' windows with breathtaking mountain and valley views, a master suite with sitting area, and a master bath with a soaking tub and a glass wall shower. Downstairs you’ll find a workout area with weights, an elliptical and a treadmill, as well as your own private soundproof movie theater, complete with a popcorn machine!

Located in a quiet neighborhood, we are very respectful of our neighbors. If you're looking for quiet solitude and a wonderful to spot to read, write or just relax, this is the place for you. (However please know up front that if you want to host lot's of loud outdoor parties, we're sorry, but this is not your place.)

Outside, enjoy star gazing from a your own private, hot tub and patio deck overlooking the adjacent woods, or relax with a glass of wine while barbecuing on the upper deck. As our home and beautifully landscaped lawn is adjacent to several hundred wooded acres, we are blessed with an abundance of trails and wildlife. White tail deer, elk, and even an occasional bear or moose visit Dreaming Bear Lodge.

Summer days are spent hiking directly from the house, horseback riding at an area ranch, exploring nearby Glacier National Park just 30 miles away, whitewater rafting, or taking a refreshing dip in Whitefish Lake, just 2 miles away. Riding a Zip Line through the trees, racing on the Alpine Slide or navigating the Aerial Adventure Park are some of the most popular activities on Whitefish Mountain a mere 5 miles away.

If you need to stay connected, you’ll have high-speed wireless internet throughout the lodge.

Email us to check on our schedule as this area only allows 30 day rentals and it is hard to show the actual calendar on VRBO sometimes.

Also, ask us about our 3bdm, 2 bath cottage INSIDE Glacier National Park!

Gail purchased this house in 2011

Why Gail chose Whitefish

Dreaming Bear Lodge is the best of all worlds..... convenient location yet very private.... wooded yet with spectacular views.... reasonably priced yet high end luxury... great relaxed vibe about the property and good energy. We encourage awesome people to stay here. :)

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this property from seeing the stately way it's located on the hilltop, and the views are breathtaking! Inside... from the soaring ceiling in the great room, to the floor to ceiling rock fireplace (made from local river rocks), to the natural log accents and the elk antler chandelier, Dreaming Bear is Montana elegance in a private setting. The theater is another thing that we love too!

Dreaming Bear Lodge

  • 5 of 5

I love this place! We stayed here the last week of August as a family of 4 (myself, my wife and my two adult sons). We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and wanted to go to a nice wilderness area with peace and quiet but we were not willing to give up any creature comforts in the process. After looking at hundreds of places on the internet, I came across this property and the online photos looked pretty impressive. After being burned on previous vacations that had nice internet photos only not to live up to lofty expectations when we finally arrive, I can honestly say that the Dreaming Bear Lodge is actually more beautiful in real life.

The setting for the lodge is an upscale residential neighborhood about an 8 minute drive from downtown Whitefish. The closest house is about 100 yards away but the way the trees line up, you don’t really see the surrounding houses very well and you definitely get a quiet and secluded feeling to the house which is exactly what we were after. We actually had a momma dear and her 2 baby deer visit our backyard on a fairly regular basis so you definitely get the feel that you are in a very nice forest area.

Everything about the house was first class but our favorite parts were the kitchen, the hot tub and the home theater. The kitchen was large, airy and extremely well equipped. We normally eat out a lot on our vacations but this kitchen and overall environment was so pleasant that we ate all but 2 of our meals at the lodge. The hot tub was a state of the art tub at a very secluded corner of the house with a great view of the setting sun. The in home theater was the nicest and most comfortable one we have ever experienced. They even had a Logitech universal remote so everything was super easy to use. They had a fairly extensive set of DVDs in the theater but we decided to supplement them on some nights with a rental from Safeway which had a fairly large collection.

The only negative I can say about this place is that it is a bit of a drive to actually get to Glacier National Park. Our primary focus was day hiking and the 3 hikes we selected were one hour, 2 hours and 2.5 hours away driving time one way. Glacier National Park is a big place and the three hikes were in the Western, Central and Eastern parts of the park. Based on my research, we might have been able to find a rental about a half hour closer to the park but most of the really nice places are in Whitefish and in my mind, it is well worth the ex
