The lake frontage is at the bottom of the property and is about 18 feet wide. We just renovated the beach area. It is very user friendly now with a nice dock with a boat lift that will hold a boat up to 7500 lbs. a swimming ladder so you can have endless fun jumping off the dick. We put in sod and now have a gentle beach and fire pit right at the waters edge. Enjoy lounging down at the lake or roast marshmallows in the fire pit.

I have kids so the home is equipped with some young kid toys, books and dvd's.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay in your home. The view of Flathead Lake and surrounding mountain range is priceless. We had lots of fun down at the lake, watching the sailboats in the evening off the deck, sunsets and bald eagles. Very tranquil!

We were pleasantly suprised by all the necessities that were provided to us. Your s'more package was very thoughtful. You certainly went over and above to ensure our stay was great. We all made sure we took some time to use the massage chair. That sure made it easy to be relaxed.

Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality, take care, D,C,A,M,K,S, Red Deer, Alberta, Canada

Oh! My! God!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend before July 4th at this lovely home with our friends. All of us were super-awed by the location, home and access to the lake. We regretted that we got to stay there for just 2 days and not more. I already told my wife that we are coming back here for our next vacation and spend time in this lovely vacation rental (by booking early). Cannot ask for more. My daughter and I swam in the lake (by accident, when we could not steer our inflated boat to the beach, both of us dived into the water and swam with the boat in one of our hand and it was fun!).

Great time on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this vacation home. It was comfortable, had great views and was a good location for us to base out of to explore the Flathead valley and not too far to go to Glacier National Park for a day. My kids and my mother-in-law enjoyed sitting together on the deck's hanging swing. My kids also loved jumping off the dock and climbing up the swimming ladder.  The sit on top kayak was great to be able to use.  The beach is at the bottom of the property. There is a gentle path and a steeper path. The beach area has a fire pit, a few lounge chairs and a table and chairs.  The home is a good value. We will stay there again.

Well taken care of

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl took very good of her home and of us. The home was clean, and stocked with everything we needed for cooking, bathing, laundry, planning activities, R&R time, etc. She provided and pack and play and a high chair at our request, which was a great relief to not have to travel with the extra baby gear. On top of the essentials, the small details like the welcome package including s'more stuff, the toy bin for the kiddo and wood for the fire pit added that bit extra to our memories. She was also very responsive in our correspondences, providing information via text messages and even delivering some extra newspaper for fire starting the same day as my request.

Lovely home, lovely views, lovely host, lovely memories.

Thank you, Cheryl!

Great views and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

My husband I stayed at this house and enjoyed every minute of it. The walk down to the little dock area is a steep but well worth it. At first we were a little apprehensive about having a tenant down below the main living area but really it was no problem. At first we weren't sure if the tenant even existed but then at some point we saw them come home. that was really the only interactions (we stayed 3 nights) The house was clean, spacesous and organized. I hope we can book another stay here some time. Our dogs were well behaved and enjoy the huge yard to run around it. It's not complete in gated in so keep your pet supervised because it is also close to the main road. Overall it was a great stay!!
