Look no further for your southern Flathead Lake accommodations! Our family friendly 2-bedroom 3-bathroom residence is conveniently located just 4 miles northeast of Polson on Montana Highway 35. The upper level features a romantic master bedroom with an electric fireplace and a luxurious FAR sauna adjoining the spacious master bath. If you ever feel it's time to step outside the bedroom and its spa-like amenities, you'll discover a cozy living room with a propane fireplace, a large guest bathroom, and an elegantly apportioned kitchen with a wall of windows that provide sweeping views of Flathead Lake to the west. The lower level of the residence features a fun, western-themed game room and an additional bedroom and bathroom. The residence also includes a laundry room so you can conveniently freshen up your wardrobe before the next leg of your journey.
Of course, a visit to Northwest Montana wouldn't be complete without immersing yourself in the stunning natural beauty of the outdoors. When you decide to explore the broader region, you'll find that the location is convenient for just about anything you might want to do. Shopping, dining, boat rentals and entertainment are all just a few minutes away in Polson, or you can also head north to explore the equally charming resort towns of Bigfork and Whitefish, or the broader amenities offered in Kalispell. West Glacier and the entrance to Glacier National Park are just 70 miles north of the residence, while Missoula is located 70 miles to the south. But there's really no requirement to drive anywhere to experience the beauty of our area. If you just step outside the residence, you'll find an expansive, multi-tiered deck with a propane grill, a propane fire table, and extensive views of Flathead Lake and the pristine wetlands which mark its southeastern shore. Situated between the deck and the lake you'll also discover our newly planted gardens which begin just north of the residence. As our guests, you are very welcome to explore the gardens, which we have resolved to keep free from herbicides and pesticides. However, our decision to avoid any non-organic chemicals requires that we spend a significant amount of time working in the gardens, so don't be surprised to see us out there planting and pruning in the spring, weeding and watering in the heat of summer, and then harvesting in the fall. The land below the deck also features approximately 460 feet of natural wetland frontage on the southeast tip of Flathead Lake, but although this frontage is very scenic and provides exceptional wildlife habitat, it is not useful for swimming or launching a boat.
The property as a whole is fairly famous in the local community. The southern half of the 6,000+ sq ft building consists of the private VRBO residence where you'll be staying, while the northern half of the building was previously operated as a local bar and restaurant known as "The Lake House". There is a separate one-bedroom apartment located on the lower level below this former bar/restaurant where we, the owners, will stay at times depending on our planting, pruning, mowing, weeding, watering and harvesting workload during the spring, summer, and fall, and depending on the weather during the winter, when commuting an extra 30 miles round trip to our family home north of Yellow Bay can be treacherous on icy roads.
Well, with all of this said, we hope this description offers a fair and detailed depiction of our fun and unique place, but if you have any questions before booking, please feel free to reach out to us. Thank you for reading all the way to the end! Stay with us -- you'll be glad you did!
