Lakeside Cottage Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom On Flathead Lake - Private Beach

This relaxing, romantic, get-away cottage is located on the shore of Flathead Lake. The water's edge is within a stone's throw from your door. The owners live on the adjacent lot. The cottage is their family guest cabin. Located in a quiet neighborhood, you can enjoy the cottage's private beach, dock, deck, and lawn. See the lake from your bed. Have your morning coffee in bed - watch the sun rise. Listening to the waves at night, while sitting at the beach is amazing. Put your feet up, the views of the lake and the mountains are incredible. Our rates include the Montana Bed Tax.

The newly remodeled one-level, 12' x 20' (240 sq.ft.) cabin at the water's edge features: one bedroom, one bath with a shower (no tub), a kitchenette, large windows, and a wrap around deck.

Amenities: New queen size bed; bedding, pillows, towels, and paper products are provided; electric heat; wireless internet; BBQ in the yard; lawn furniture; and one parking space next to the cottage.

Kitchenette includes: Microwave with some microwaveable cooking dishes provided, toaster, coffee maker with filters, bar sized refrigerator with a small freezer, paper plates, cups, and utensils. Guests provide their own meals. Great restaurants are nearby. No daily maid service - original one time linen/towel set up is included.

Suitability: The “Dunwandering” Cottage is a retreat for adults wanting privacy, quiet, and relaxation. Maximum - 2 people on the property - this includes the dock. No visiting boaters. Renters may not bring or have rented sail boats, motorized boats or “wave runners” on the property. We have no safe place to moor them. Please feel free to bring your own float toys or non-motorized water craft (as none are provided.) No events are allowed (example: wedding, dinners, or birthday party.) Non-smokers only please. Camp fires, fireworks, or pets are not permitted. Not suitable for children: mainly due to the close proximity to the Lake. Minimum age limit for Renters: 25 yrs old - ID’s of both people are required and will be checked. Not Wheel Chair Accessible - due to narrow door ways.

Any questions? Don't hesitate to call.

Flathead Lake is the largest and one of the cleanest natural freshwater lakes in the West. It is approximately 15 miles wide, 23 miles long, and has 161 miles of shoreline. The lake offers great recreation: swimming - on site; nearby - local site seeing boat tours, kayak tours, and fishing charters.

While in the area, visit one of the Flathead Valley’s nine championship golf courses; horse boarding, lessons, and trail rides are nearby; The Event at Rebecca Farm (a world class horse event) is in July; and Glacier National Park is an hour’s drive away. Glacier Park offers ranger led walks, horseback riding, boat tours, fishing, a hikers paradise and the 52 mile “Going to the Sun Highway”, a National Historic Landmark that crosses the Continental Divide at Logan Pass.

Special Request: This is a quiet, residential neighborhood. Because we respect our neighbors, we ask that there be no loud music, etc. during your stay. We look forward to having you as our guests.

Beautiful and quiet place to relax and view sunrise on Flathead Lake.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at The Cottage on Flathead Lake this August 10th -12th. Sheri and Don Anderson greeted us and made us feel at "home" away from home. They were courteous and helpful and gave advice about stores and places to eat nearby. Their cottage was extra clean and neatly tucked away on the lake for a secluded retreat from the big city. We spent two weeks touring 4 National Parks and this was our most favorite place to stay. We definitely recommend the Cottage for anyone who enjoys some quiet time on the water and occasional views of Bald Eagles and crystal clear water. Larry Brisendine

We spent 5 nights in this beautiful place. There were plenty of activities to keep us busy but we especially enjoyed the quiet solitude with a good book.

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were friendly and accommodating! I really enjoyed just talking with them and they helped me find fun things to do while in the area. Being next door they seemed to be mindful to allow privacy but were available if needed! I will be back again some day!

It was beautiful! A spectacular spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay! Don and Sheri we're wonderful and accommodating. The cabin was small but perfect for a lake get away! What a small piece of paradise. It was quiet and relaxing and we never wanted to leave! We also enjoyed fun located near our stay. We went on a zip line tour and golfed. Lots of things to do! High recommendation from us!

Simple, cozy accommodations with beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time during our stay at Dun Wandering cabin. We enjoyed soaking up the sun and taking in the beautiful views on our private dock. Sheri and Don were excellent hosts, accommodating all of our needs while there. The cottage was exactly as we expected: small but well maintained, clean, and equipped with everything we needed. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet getaway on scenic Flathead Lake.
