Whitefish Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Office, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)ul

Old craftsman style timber-framed lodge with luxurious, new amenities. Open great room with clerestory and lots of french doors and windows that overlook a very scenic lake ideal for activities: sea kayaking (provided upon request), fishing, swimming, snorkeling, ice skating, cross country skiing, ice fishing or broom hockey. Lake frontage - 50 feet from the lake.

Large family-style dining room adjacent to a gourmet kitchen with a Wolf range, two ovens and a Liebherr fridge; granite, soapstone, butcher block, and stainless countertops. A very large island for extra seating or spectator cooking. This kitchen is made for serving up gourmet meals to a crowd.

The covered front entryway is timber-framed, as is the very large back wrap-around, covered porch that overlooks the lake. A wood cookstove on the back porch lends a bit of warmth or hot water for tea or coffee on chilly evenings. Wonderful flower, herb & vegetable gardens, as well as a hammock for quiet contemplation and relaxing.

The master suite features a high ceiling, french doors overlooking the garden, and a spacious shower with steam room. Another bath has a large jetted soaking tub with heater. A third bathroom adjoins the upstairs bedrooms, one with a nice view of the lake. The loft seating area overlooks the large great room and clerestory - a perfect 'tree house setting' for additional kid sleeping.

Very quite and peaceful setting.

If you have a larger group please contact us about the possibility of renting a neighboring rental.

Why Bobbie Gilmore chose Montana

I am a very active outdoors person, so northwestern Montana is the perfect spot for me: skiing, backpacking, sea kayaking, hiking, climbing, etc. I know Glacier National Park very well, so if you have questions on where to go or what to do, please ask!

What makes this lodge unique

Quiet and peaceful... except of course for the red necked grebes, coyotes, sandhill cranes, Canadian Geese and the resident laying hens. The very large wrap around covered porch overlooking the lake is the perfect place to swing in the hammock, read a book or just relax enjoying the view. Or, for an active day try sea kayaking (while fishing for pike?) swimming, snorkeling or mountain biking on the many trails just outside the door.

Glacier Park is only 40 minutes away, but hurry. The glaciers are forecasted to be gone by 2020. Glacier is a wonderful destination for hikes, picnics, boat rides, backpacking and wildlife viewing.

Wonderful lodge vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 that used the lodge for a base as we toured the area and Glacier National park. The timber frame construction of the lodge made you feel good the moment you walked in. The high ceilings and ambient lighting just added to the warmth. The gourmet kitchen had everything and more to make fixing meals a snap. The lodge had more than enough space that we didn't even use it all. The outside dinning area on the porch was a big hit and a great place to just relax. We used the kayaks to explore the small lake and check out any wildlife. We heard the loon but did not see him, but the deer were always present as well as some wild turkeys. The fact that there was a chicken coop with chickens and fresh eggs was kind of a conversation piece! You will not be looking for anything as the lodge was very well equipped. All we can say is that the lodge was a great find and we highly recommend it. Bobbie was also great to deal with in putting together our stay.
