DESCRIPTION:

Sample the beauty of Northwest Montana as you retreat to this custom Bitterroot Lake-front house in Marion, Montana. The house sits on one acre and includes 150 feet of private lake frontage, as well as 700 feet of frontage on the adjacent community property - a haven for wild birds and other native animals. Bitterroot Lake is a 3,000 acre lake, located just 20 miles West of convenient Kalispell and 40 minutes from Glacier International Airport. .

Designed for efficiency, you will enjoy the coziness of this spacious, smoke-free house which is furnished to sleep up to 10 people. This charming house was designed by the owner, who has college degrees in architecture. Rooms include: three bedrooms (two with lofts), two and a half bathrooms, a family theater/game room, a living room facing the lake, a kitchen opened to the dining room, an office, and an upstairs study desk area. Additional rooms include a laundry room with front-loading washer and dryer, and an outdoor shower with hot water.

Amenities include: wood burning stove for warmth or mood-lighting; audio and visual entertainment system, including multi-room and outdoor patio speakers and a large LCD flat screen television (there is NO television service, the TV is for DVDs only; some provided on site) outdoor propane barbeque; a fire pit; and rock patio with adjacent grass lawn. Enjoy the lake in your personal or rental boat that you may put in at the adjacent public boat launch near the Lions Camp. Or go fishing for Kokanee salmon and trophy-sized rainbow trout; enjoy a barbeque with family and friends; and end the evening with a campfire, games around the dining table, or a movie in surround sound. Winter fun activities include ice-fishing, snowshoeing, skate-skiing on the lake, as well as skiing at three different ski resorts (Big Mountain, Blacktail, and Turner) - all located about an hour from the house. In any season, this beautiful lake-house will warm your heart with memories for a lifetime.

Exceeded the pictures and descriptions provided. Exactly how we'd want every vacation experience.

A true diamond in the ruff!

The owner's attention to detail and unique amenities throughout raised my levels of expectations for future gatherings as well as what I would want to build into my own home.

One posting indicated a concern for the one tv. Two things:

1-It's a vacation

2-The one TV is in the home theater. It's an outstanding setup and more than offsets the lack of other TV's.

As the home is set up for family entertainment in a serene setting, the owners did an outstanding job of directing traffic flow. The home theater serves well to keep children gainfully entertained while allowing grownups to congregate nearby in the large living room or outside flagstone patio. The firepit's location close to the lake allows for increased groupings.

Having stayed at at cabins in Texas, California and million dollar extravaganzas in Colorado's ski country, this by far set a new standard of delivery.

Thank you for lettIng us stay in your home!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your glowing review. When you design a home, you put your heart in it; and it warmed mine that you could feel that in the house. We enjoyed having you, Cindy, and your daughter, and are glad that you made wonderful memories at our little piece of paradise on Bitterroot Lake.

WE LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5

My sister-wife and our five children stayed here for a lovely Memorial Weekend. We had a fantastic time. We spent one day fishing by the lake and roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. Another day, we sauntered around Whitefish with the kids and took it easy. The home was beautiful and comfortable! We would definitely recommend it and return again.

Lovely home in and outstanding setting

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay in your home! Awesome views of the lake no matter what we were doing, and very comfortable facilities. Very quiet area where it was so easy to relax. Previous reviews indicate the wifi is a bit slow, but that only seemed to be an issue for me when looking at maps of the area online (to research daytrips and activities). I had good cellular data coverage while outside. I guess I don't care much about the internet at such a beautiful place!

Very nice property. I'd definitely recommend.

Best Summer Vaca Ever!!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at the Paradise Cabin on Bitterroot Lake. The accommodations were just as described. The home was well equipped, clean and maintained. The sleeping quarters are best suited to a family with two adults and up to 5 children. We had 3 adult couples, 2 kids and 2 dogs but we made everything work! The location is spectacular, clear lake water, fresh air, warm days and cool nights....could not have asked for a more perfect setting to enjoy Montana and all its beauty. Days were spent fishing, swimming and exploring the surrounding area. The drive to Glacier National Park was well worth it! Evenings we would cook a big family meal for all to enjoy and late nights were spent around the lakeside fire pit toasting marsh mellows, telling fish stories and a lot of laughter. We hope to return for a future visit and would definitely recommend to anyone seeking a private lake front vacation spot. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Cindy, Las Vegas, NV

Amazing lake home

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a family vacation. The house is beautiful and unique in its design. There are great views of the lake from every room. Plenty of space for relaxing and many toys and games to keep busy. Play on the warm lake on sunny days, relax by the fire on rainy days. Take day trips to Glacier, Flathead lake, or even Canada. Perfect location.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Paradise on Bitterroot with our family of 5. It was a wonderful location right on the lake. The water is crystal clear and the kids were able to play in the lake for hours. The home is a great place to start and end your days as you are away from town and can watch the sun set over the lake. We would absolutely stay here again, one of the best vacations our family has had.
