This enchanting Montana lodge was custom built in 2004. It has a true Montana feel and is located in a private wooded setting, surrounded by larch, pine and birch trees. There are many areas where the native plants have been allowed to thrive. It is surrounded by a flower garden that guarantees flowers, no matter what time of the summer you visit. The grounds are landscaped with a large lawn and a large crystal blue, rock lined pond complete with its flowing fountain. There is a deck that overlooks the pond for the perfect place to enjoy the long Montana summer evenings as you sit at the picnic table and grill on the Weber propane grill. The Black Bear Lodge is just a short stroll through the woods from the Brand new log and timber Walking Bear Lodge for those with larger families. Together they sleep up to 30 guests. (see #224622)

About LuAnn

When I came to this area on Vacation I couldn't find anything this area didn't offer. Everyday here is a great adventure and I enjoy sharing the beauty of this place with our guests. There is never a lack of something to do. On a perfect summer day you can golf, whitewater raft and hike long before it gets dark. You can have as much solitude as you wish or as much adventure as you can possibly handle.

LuAnn purchased this house in 2007

Why LuAnn chose Montana

After traveling through all the National Parks in the US, I was captivated by the beauty of Glacier National Park. The pristine rivers, blue lakes and endless outdoor recreation was something I had looked for in a town. Formally a Lake Tahoe resident, my wish list included finding a place like Lake Tahoe was 20 years ago. I wanted a ski town and lake town with Year round outdoor activities. When I came here and saw Glacier National Park.It was more then I had ever dreamed of finding in one place. I moved here 2 years later.

What makes this house unique

I chose this location to put you right in the middle of it all. You are only a few minutes from the trains and airport. A few minutes to the shopping, two downtown areas, Big Mountain ski resort and Glacier National Park. Although Whitefish lake is beautiful there are many smaller lakes and rivers to enjoy. The house itself lets you have privacy, open family areas but is a short ride to all the things I just mentioned.

Great Cabin - tight on bathrooms

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was excellent. The cabin setup is great. Comfortably slept and cooked for 13 people. With only two bathrooms - you've got to time things - but there are plenty of high quality linens. Excellent kitchen with gas stove and high quality appliances. Well stocked for cooking and feeding a large number of people.

About 40 minutes outside West Glacier - it made getting an early start to trailheads easy. If you're staying there in the summer - forego the master beds on the upstairs level and take a cool, dark room downstairs! The upstairs rooms are great, but in the summer it gets light very early so if you want to sleep in a little and stay a little cooler - the basement is the place to be.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes we do have a great location in fact we are one of very few 5 bedroom homes close to Whitefish. You are centrally located to all the fun but still have the benefits of a large yard, outside fire pit and grilling area. I am glad you enjoyed the air conditioning, it does make a difference in the mid-afternoon but we normally get nice cool nights in the 50"s which is perfect for sleeping with the windows open ,getting some of that great Montana air. The house does have 2 big bathrooms and plans for a 3rd one this year. When you compare the price of 3 bathroom/ 5 bedroom houses you can see the price jumps $50-200 or more per night or the location is much further from Whitefish. We will be adding another soon and I hope you will come and enjoy it again. It was wonderful to have you as our guests.

This place was everything we expected and more

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and well taken care of. The lot was huge and our kids had a great time racing around the pond and seeing the wild turkeys. The house was open and had tons of space for visiting. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: I don't think there could be anything better than hearing the little voices of children playing and having fun. Thank you for staying with us, you were a great and fun group to host. I think the advantage of a house over hotel is the ability to run free and just play outside so the fun doesn't stop once you get back to the hotel and are stuffed inside. I really hope to see you again.

A lovely cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with three other couples for my husbands surprise 50th birthday party. It was great, very quite and peaceful. There is everything you could need for cooking. We stayed for two nights and cooked all of our meals here and the only thing we didn't find was a pancake skillet. But there was many other pans to use. It is a quick drive into town or up to the ski mountain but outside of town enough to make you feel like you were out in the woods in the middle of nowhere. We will definitely be staying here again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Pancake skillet is on our list now. We do love this location and feel like it is in the middle of all this wonderful area has to offer. We are near 7 golf courses, the Whitefish lake , downtown Whitefish, Big Mountain, The Bob Marshall Wilderness area and Kalispell. Please do come and stay again. Happy Birthday!
