The perfect porch on the perfect lake with the perfect host.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week on Whitefish Lake. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable and clean lake house for our stay in Montana. It was close to everything and very accommodating. Did I mention the most well-equipped kitchen in all of our HomeAway/VRBO travels. You will be very happy on this porch.

An absolutely perfect location and very well appointed

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic location and beautiful property with absolutely nothing missing. This was easily the best appointed rental we have ever stayed in and we will be back for sure. The property is beautiful with all the lake toys you need to make sure your kids are asleep early and you can enjoy your wine and amazing lake views at sunset. Thanks once again Linda and we'll see you again next year.

Exceptional Whitefish Lake

  • 5 of 5

We've rented from Linda for many years and can't imagine staying anywhere else. The location is extraordinary, the landscaping is stunning, the dock is always clean and inviting, and the views are amazing. As my kids have gotten older, it's be great to see them be able to walk into town without a grownup in tow. If you want a great experience for you and your family, this is the place.

About Linda

I always knew that someday I would live on Whitefish Lake. My grand parents used to run a cabin resort named 'Win-na-kee Cottages' during the 1950's, 60's and 70's. Most of the grand kids came every summer to spend weeks making beds, renting boats, cleaning cabins, mowing lawns and just enjoying being around the lake. I dreamed of some day having my own home on the Lake and now I do.My home was built in 2006. I love to share it with families so they can also create the same kind of memories that last for generations. I love it here ! All seasons are wonderful. I will do everything I can to make your stay the best vacation you ever had.

Linda purchased this house in 2006

Why Linda chose Whitefish

The memories from my childhood lured me here my entire life. When you arrive in Whitefish you are engaged with energy from the beautiful surroundings and all of the water that surrounds you. The Whitefish River is just across the bay and is so fun to canoe or tube down. The ducks and geese and even an occasional river otter, are all along the banks. Use your imagination and explore all the rivers, streams, creeks, and especially all the lakes in the area. The eclectic town of Whitefish appears small but is large in what it has to offer. The privacy of the property lends itself to relaxing, picture taking and sharing experiences with your family in a spectacular setting.

What makes this house unique

This cottage is on the East end of the Lake. It is withing walking distance to town and City Beach. It has a private driveway. The cottage is almost sitting on the lake shore.It is very private and the wildlife is everywhere. The furnishings and the things this house has to offer will help make your experience almost perfect. The large covered decks that surround the house, give you many ways to spend your vacation time. There are two picnic tables on the lawn. Move them around between the sun and shade. They are so fun to have for family use. Enjoy a game of horseshoes or even soccer. Just relax, and enjoy. Lay on the dock, listen to the water and nature noises. Take pictures of all the animals that wonder on and off the property. When you leave Whitefish, you will not have to take a vacation from your vacation. You will feel rested and renewed with all that you have experienced here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your place is the epitome of what a house on the Lake should be. We had a great time, the only regret was the we did not stay for another week. With Glacier Park so close and Big Mountain, with all its adventures, and your beautiful cottage on the Lake, we had the best vacation ever. The August weather was so warm and the cool Lake and all the activity it provides could have kept us busy for the entire summer. The kids enjoyed all the water activities so much, I am sure we will come back. Our vacation at your gorgeous spot was everything we had hoped for.
