Why Patti Burk chose Montana

We came to Whitefish for numerous years before building this home. We would come on weekends and summer vacations. This is a well loved home!

What makes this house unique

Lots of deer to watch, and a couple of bald-headed eagles like to perch in the very tall tree out on the left side of the house. They like to swoop down in front of the deck to fish in the lake!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time on our first visit to the Whitefish area and this beautiful vacation property. There was ample room for us and our 3 children. The location was a perfect combination of rest,relaxation,as well as good proximity to the town site and shopping when desired. We enjoyed hanging out on the lovely deck with fantastic views of the lake,spotting wildlife,listening to the tunes on the stereo inside and out while BBQ'ing and relaxing,and even braved a few jumps into the glacier water off the dock with the kids!

Tom and Patti were very helpful and friendly and we look forward to their Montana getaway someday soon :)

A perfect place to get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared Patti's house with our daughter, her husband, and their 12 and 10 year old sons. It was a perfect place for our vacation. The house is spacious, comfortable, and in a perfect location on Whitefish Lake. Sitting on the front porch places you in the woods, while the back deck overlooks the picture perfect lake. The home is welcoming and visitor friendly - the owners provide plenty of coffee for the Keurig coffeemaker and cooking is made much easier by the extensive collection of spices. We were provided with plush bathrobes and thick towels. The household manual that we received contained detailed instructions on everything from operating the TVs to docking a boat. Patti contacted us often - before our vacation to see if we had any questions, upon arrival to make sure we arrived safely and had everything we needed, and after we arrived home.

The house is a 20 minute drive from the town of Whitefish with its shops, farmers' market, and restaurants. Whitefish has a good independent bookstore and an active arts community. We went into Glacier National Park twice ( take the red bus tour along the Road to the Sun) and rented a pontoon boat for a day, We caught lots of fish from our private dock, loved the pool table, and enjoyed the collection of board games.

Whether you choose to fish, to enjoy the rigors of hiking, to spend time in town, or to just curl up with a favorite book, this home on Whitefish Lake is a gem and exceeded all our expectations. It was a difficult place to leave. We would love to return there some day.

Our second stay at this property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the first time two summers ago and decided to try it again this year (albeit in late June vs. late July). Once again we had a very enjoyable stay. The house is very clean and comfortable for our family of 4. We rented kayaks and brought our bikes, so there is a lot to do if you are active. The paved road leading to the house does not have much traffic so it is perfect for bike riding. There are also well maintained hiking trails nearby. We went up to the ski hill and tried the zip lining, which was excellent. The views from the deck are outstanding, so even if you are not too active, it is a great place to just hang out!

Beautiful scenic location

What a delightful place to stay as we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary! Well equipped kitchen, spotless, amazing lake and mountain views from comfortable adriondack deck chairs, 20 min from Whitefish with its fun shops and restaurants, and covenient to west

entrance of Glacier. Home is upscale and

comfortable. Highly recommend as a restful beautiful retreat after a full day of hiking and rafting. Patti and Tom are service oriented, attentive to details and available to answer questions. The Costco in nearby Kalispell is a bonus!

Heaven on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This is house was heaven on Whitefish Lake!!!!! It is beautiful, extremely clean and tidy, well-stocked, comfy...I could go on and on. The view of the lake from inside the house as well as from the deck is absolutely incredible! Every bedroom, with the exception of the twin bedroom, has a huge window facing the lake. Waking up each morning to that view was amazing! The owners are kind, easy to work with, available if you need them but never intrusive. We took fly fishing lessons, rafted the middle fork of the Flathead River, drove the Going-to- the-Sun Road, hiked to Avalanche Lake, enjoyed the precious town of Whitefish - shopping, dining, and cocktails, rode the lift up Big Mountain at Whitefish Ski Resort, rode the Alpine Slide, enjoyed cocktails on the deck of this magnificent house, used the grill to cook out, enjoyed cooking in the awesome kitchen for a few meals...we absolutely had the most wonderful time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I highly recommend this property!! You will not be disappointed!!

Fantastic Whitefish Lake Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have enjoyed a lake vacation every summer for decades and this home was one of the best. This is a beautiful home, very clean and well-stocked with everything you'll need to relax and enjoy. The dock and lake were perfect for skiing and fishing. The close proximity to the quaint vacation town of Whitefish and shopping in Kalispell a bonus. Thank you Patti and family for sharing your beautiful home with us!!
