Overview

About the property

Log Cabin, 3 Bedrooms w/King Beds, Loft, 2.5 Baths

This gorgeous custom built Eureka log home is roughly 3,000 square feet and has 3 California King sized beds in three large separate bedrooms, 4 extra long twin beds in the loft area. The master suite is downstairs and there are two bedrooms and one large bathroom upstairs. The home was built in 1998 and features a very dramatic 30 foot vault that words do not properly describe.

This log home is incredibly open inside with two Big Country wood stoves in one gigantic great room that is open from kitchen to dining room to the two living rooms. It is truly an artisan home and has craftsmanlike features thru out. From the huge earth slate kitchen to the gigantic river rock fireplace to the 5 foot wide Wolf stove you will certainly feel right at home as soon as you step foot inside.

The home is also just minutes away from the airport, the town of Whitefish, the ski area, numerous lakes and golf courses and yet you feel completely lost at a secluded lodge when you drive into the home at the back of ten acres and across the street from over 1,000 acres of state owned land. The house sits on the rear corner of a ten acre lot surrounded by woods in all directions with no other home visible from the very quiet and oh so relaxing massive front porch.

The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms with a total of four sinks (two in each bathroom), three toilets (two in one bathroom and one in the master bathroom) a Jacuzzi tub in the master bath and a separate shower in the master bathroom and a combo tub/shower in the upstairs bathroom.

The home has a lodge like feel with a huge vaulted common area that is 30 feet tall and also boasts a very large deck on three of the four sides of the home. There is Wi-Fi for Internet access and two of the three bedrooms have TVs (High Def 42" plasma in mstr w/surround snd/43" Hgh Def flat screen upstairs) with Blueray/DVD/Netflix ect. and 200 channels of satellite. I purposely do not have a tv out in the common area because that is not why you are up there. I try to create an environment for families and friends to commune over the days adventures or recalling memories of fun past stories or a quiet environment to read and relax in.

It is very conveniently located off of Fwy 93 and to FCA airport, 10 minutes to downtown Whitefish, 15 minutes to downtown Kalispell, 20 to 30 minutes to Whitefish Mountain Ski Area and 40 minutes to Glacier National Park.

The home is surrounded by forested land and you will be just across the street from about 1,000 acres of state owned wilderness. What this means to you and your family and friends is total privacy! In the summer you are within 20 minutes of Glacier International Airport, 40 minutes from Glacier National Park, 10 minutes to Big Mountain Golf Course, 10 to Whitefish Golf Courses, 10 minutes to the Whitefish Lake or 30 to the Whitefish Ski Resort. You can walk or mountain bike for miles right from the front door. Or, if you would rather come home and just curl up and watch a movie there is a 42' Plasma TV with surround sound in the master bedroom for a complete theater experience. There is just so much to do in the area!

About Owner

I started my career in a Venture Capital firm and created a Real Estate Investment Company at the age of 23. I have lived out of the country in places like Africa, Spain and Brazil and have spent a lot of time traveling all over the world. I grew up in Darien Connecticut and used to live in San Francisco and now reside near the beach here in Los Angeles. Presently I design and build homes and I am also a LA County Ocean Lifeguard.

Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why Owner chose Whitefish

The property is amazingly located in that it is central to both Whitefish and Kalispell, easily accessable to the airport and most importantly is completely tranquil in its location in the woods. It sits at the back of a 10 acre lot and has another 20 acres of raw land to the North of it and has over 1,800 acres of State owned land on the other side of the dirt road at the end of the driveway. Everything is so close yet you feel completely isolated and hence completely relaxed when you are on this property.

WOW

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a wonderful time at this home. We did quite a lot of research before choosing this home for our stay and it paid off. The home has a gigantic kitchen with everything my wife and I needed to prepare wonderful home cooked meals. We also slept so well because of how comfortable the big beds were and how incredibly quiet it was at night. The master bed is a little bit high off the ground but it was a neat change for us and with the old logs across the ceilings and walls it was a really neat space. I would highly recommend this home for a wonderful vacation!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

As all the other reviews say, absolutely wonderful home. The only negative had to do with the smoke and fires that were burning in Montana during our visit. I had several family members visiting from the east coast and all of us were extremely disappointed that Glacier National Park was essentially closed. We were able to get up the east-side of the "Going to the Sun Road" but there was little to see with all the smoke. That said, we still had a wonderful time, in large measure due to having such wonderful accommodations in this home. I would strongly recommend it to others and we hope to be back in the future!

Great Cabin, Great Host

  • 5 of 5

A spectacular cabin out in the woods, prepared by a thoughtful, patient host. The pictures are accurate but do not fully capture the "in the woods" feeling that emanates from this experience. We skied, watched the snow come down, tended the cozy woodstove, and ate amazing meals produced from the impressive kitchen. Whitefish Ski Resort, the welcoming town of Whitefish, and the shopping amenities of Kalispell all were within minutes of the cabin while feeling like you are out in the woods. We slept wonderfully, appreciated the quiet of the site, saw several deer, and relaxed by the fireplace. The host communicated well. This will go down as an all-time family memory.

Fantastic Log Home Nestled Deep in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Nestled deep in the woods across from MT State Trusted Land, excellent accommodations - everything you need and more. Short drive to Whitefish or Kalispell but away from it all, quiet and serene. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay. We rented cross country skis from Glacier Cyclery (excellent) and we were able to ski right out front door down the private drive and street to some trails on the State Trust Lands. Awoke to seeing deer every morning foresting through the snow. The ready split wood for the two wood stoves plus radiant floor heat was great and kept us cozy and warm even when it was -10 degrees F outside. This Log Home has all the essentials and many amenities. When we return to Whitefish MT we will be looking to rent this again.

Great Montana Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed spending three weeks at this beautiful cabin in the woods. It has such a remote feeling yet it is very close to attractions such as Glacier National Park, Whitefish, and Kalispell. We constantly made day trips into Glacier National Park and came "home" to a very warm environment. We were also able to hike and cycle directly from the property as well and relax, watch the wildlife, and enjoy the peacefulness of the sounds of nature. The cabin is well-furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen has all of the cooking utensils and tools that you need to create excellent meals. We really enjoyed our time at the cabin and will return soon! Thanks to Bob and Becky for their excellent recommendations of activities and taking great care of us!
