Whitefish House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath with Loft 2 Blocks From Downtown

An 'Old Whitefish' home, newly renovated, still with its original charm and a view of Whitefish Mountain and city beach at the foot of Whitefish Lake or Central Ave only a short walk away. The Railway district is in the heart of Whitefish, in a lazy and quiet little neighborhood convenient to just about everything. There is also a small backyard perfect for grilling and relaxing.

The location is just one block to Whitefish hotspots such as Mambo's, Loulas, Pescado Blanco, Swift Creek Cafe, 2nd Steet Pizza, The White room Ski Shop, Glacier Cyclery, and just 2 blocks to Central Ave., the Farmer's Market, Gallery Nights, the SNOW bus pick up and two of Whitefish's best parks on the Whitefish River. It is also located just down the street from Whitefish Lake Golf Club, which also offers cross country skiing in the winter, and The Wave Fitness Center. Hop on your bike and it's just a short ride on the bike path along Whitefish River to City Beach at Whitefish Lake. You'll love being able to get to and from the shops, restaurants, and all that Whitefish has to offer with such ease.

I moved to Whitefish on a whim 3 years ago and fell in love with the area. I have bought property in the Railway District to fix up the existing structure and to help the revitalization of our neighborhood.

Maggie Lin purchased this house in 2013

This is an old Whitefish home built in 1918 in the Railway District of downtown Whitefish. A cute house to begin with and is being updated and opened up to a more modern feel. We lovingly named it The Hobbit House because of how small all the rooms were was when we bought it. Now we made it so you don't have to duck through doorways! We have opened up the house and allowed its charm to shine through.

Only 3 blocks from Downtown

Great location

  • 4 of 5
I would definitely recommend this rental. We just returned from a great stay in Whitefish. The location is awesome; so close to the beach, downtown, restaurants and major highways, as well as Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain.

The owner was great to deal with as well. We emailed back and forth prior to arrival, she recommended things to do in Whitefish, provided excellent directions, and answering my questions about amenities in the house. She was also available via phone or email for any questions or concerns while we were renting.

We found the house very comfortable for 4 adults (2 couples). We cooked most of our meals which was a little challenging as there was only 1 paring knife, no measuring utensils and only basic kitchen cookware.

Overall, a very comfortable rental, great location and dedicated owner!

Great location, basic house and ammenities

  • 3 of 5
The quaint house in Whitefish was average. It was a GREAT location and had enough room for myself, husband, toddler and 8lb dog but it would be tight for a family bigger than 4.

The house was basic in nature but really needs a deep cleaning. It was very dusty and felt dusty. All the window ledges, lamps, shelves, etc. were dusty. Also the bathroom mirror was not cleaned before we came. It had spots on it and was dusty. I would not say the place was dirty it just was not really clean to what my expectation would be for the price and cleaning fee.

It had the basic items but did not have extras - knives, colander, salt, pepper, etc. It also showed having a charcoal grill and it did not offer this feature. It was again just basic in nature. The best part of the place was the location to town, freeways, etc.

Overall, I would recommend if you are looking for basic and are not a clean freak.

just alright

  • 2 of 5
The good:
Great location close to town. The house was very clean. Pet friendly.
The bad:
This is not a place that actually sleeps six. There is a bedroom upstairs with a king and a single bed right outside the door of that bedroom in a loft area. There is a tiny bedroom with a double on the main floor. The upstairs bedroom was freezing cold. (Therefore only room for five).
The kitchen is small and there is a small bar/island that has two stools - where were the other guests supposed to sit? There were no kitchen knives or even a cutting board to use to prepare food. There was no ovenproof bakeware to use for cooking.
The cable television did not work. We asked about this twice during our stay and the problem was not resolved.

Nothing to complain about at all. The owner was extremely easy to deal with. The location is by far the greatest part of the house. You can walk downtown in two minutes.

Great location.

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in Whitefish in July, what a great city and this property has a fantastic proximity to downtown.

From what the owner told us, we were the first people to stay here after a renovation and that there were a couple items yet to finish. The owner was responsive to our needs (shower had two issues - which she got a plumber to fix right away, needed towels - which she delivered within an hour or so) and worked to make us happy. Once the renovation fixes the couple small issues, this property, while not a Ritz Carlton level property, will be very comfortable and super convenient to all the downtown nightlife. Location is the absolute best part about it!

Thanks to the owner on working to improve our experience!

Sitting in a quiet neighborhood in downtown Whitefish. Just blocks away from restaurants, bars, boutiques and spas. Right outside the door is access to the Whitefish trial system which takes you a short .4 mile walk to city beach. Is only 30 minutes to Glacier National Park west entrance, 10 minutes to the base of Whitefish Mountain Resort, and 15 minutes from Glacier International Airport.
