Actually, this was to be our dream home in Whitefish - on the lake & by the ski area! I put my heart & soul into every detail..... then we accidentally fell in love with Flathead Lake, where we moved during the remodel & addition on our Lakeshore home. Being Native Montanans, we love the mountains & the lakes & cannot imagine a better place to live than western Montana ! Whitefish is great in any season for your outside adventures!
Located right on the lake, in the winter we can watch ice fisherman with their catch of the day & cross country skiers gliding over the frozen lake surface ....And in summer, friends boat into our dock for a BBQ or drink, & to let their kids enjoy the water. The year round ambiance of the city of Whitefish, with its top-notch restaurants & local flavor is always enjoyable. Of all the celebrations, 2 of our favorites are the 4th of July with its fireworks display off of city beach, and the Winter Carnival weekend with its parades, polar plunge, & overall festivities. Access to the wonderful Montana outdoors is so important. Also, the peacefulness of the lake & mountain views is beyond words... The best of all worlds!.
This house sits directly adjacent to the railroad tracks with frequent trains running around the clock. The house vibrates when the trains pass and quite loud. This was never disclosed to us. In addition, the heat did not work in the downstairs area where most of the bedrooms were. It was very cold. This was not disclosed to us prior to arrival. When I asked the owner for an adjustment on the rental rate she refused. Later she charged us almost $100 to refinish an end table in the living room because a glass left a water mark on the wood. There were no coasters and this is normal wear and tear. We did not have a good experience with this unethical owner/manager.
What a wonderful place to call home for our group of 5 couples while on our annual Ski Vacation! This home is perfect for entertaining with the kitchen & Great Room together on the main level where our party mainly hung out. A little cold for the outside BBQ, but the kitchen/living area was cozy with the gas fireplace. Kitchen was well stocked and plenty of towels for the hot tub & baths. Gorgeous views from all rooms in this home of the frozen lake across to Whitefish Mountain. Lots of wonderful snow our entire stay. With a 20 minute drive to the ski area and a short drive to the downtown restaurants & bars, it was a prefect location for us. The 5- bedroom/5-bath floor plan allowed us lots of privacy & room to spread out in. The heated floor 2 car garage with the built-in ski rack was wonderful to unpack all our snow-filled ski gear at days end! An enjoyable home in a wonderful winter setting, we look forward to next year! Owners were very nice & even left us a gift basket.
This rental home is a fantastic place to spend time with family on the beautiful Whitefish Lake! The five bedroom set up lends itself very well for at least two families to share time together. It is a spacious, well kept home. The view is so special from the master bedroom, such a wonderful way to wake up each day. It is in a quiet neighbourhood and has plenty of room for parking and a boat trailer. The train runs directly behind the property but the home is well insulated and the train noise is not a real issue. It is part of the charm of Whitefish! The home is well stocked and you are able to make yourself feel at home. The owners are fantastic to work with and are quick to respond to any issues that may arise. We enjoyed our stay very much!! Whitefish is a wonderful year round destination and this home is close to all amenities!
I had the great fortune to spend a month in Whitefish celebrating my 60th with all my favorite people. This home is large and very comfortable and beautiful, but I did feel the maintenance was lacking.
The outdoor furniture was in poor shape, as well as the dining chairs inside were quite wobbly. There were no stairs to the hot tub and not everyone I know was agile enough to enter the tub from the outside slider door step. Many of the towels were either frayed or had bleach stains. One bathroom had a broken glass door on one side and light out in the shower. The oven hood fan knob was missing. Broken rack in the dishwasher. The windows and screens didn't look like they had been cleaned in quite some time. The train was a little annoying. I know it sounds like I am nit picking, and I did really enjoy my time there, but as this is a high end rental, I guess my expectations were high.
I would suggest going though with the owner or agent prior to your assuming the rental.
We had an incredible summer in Whitefish. Loved the beautiful lake, town. Home is 30 minute drive to Glacier national park, 5 minutes to town and right on lake. Well cared for home, plenty of space for our extended family. Owners very nice and responsive. Kitchen well stocked, plenty of beach towels, nice hot tub on deck with gorgeous views from every room facing lake. Train does run behind house which was not really an issue but should be aware as some may be bothered by train noise. Honestly was not an issue for us and we are quite noise sensitive. We brought our own kayaks and paddle board and had a blast every day on lake. There is a lovely dock right in back. Great house, great location!!+ All together an amazing summer- would definitely come back.
This home is fantastic!! We had the best time with our family, guests and boat. The house exceeded expectations! It was very clean and well kept. We particularly loved the access to the lake and the fabulous views. It was a pleasure dealing with the owners and they communicated extremely well with all of our questions and concerns. Whitefish is an amazing year round resort and having a fabulous stay in this home made our time there even better.
