West Glacier lodge description

'Halfmoon Lake ' is a private residence on 17 secluded acres which include timber, meadows and 1000 feet of frontage on Halfmoon Lake. The property, formally called 'Murphy's at the Lake', is under new management and is called 'Halfmoon Lake Lodge'. Our desire is to provide your three generation family or group of friends with a wonderful, private location next to Glacier Park. We host small weddings as well.
Towering over the property are the Belton Mountains. These mammoth giants outline the sky in three directions and grace the lake frontage with spectacular views. There are no other properties or residences on the place, which adds to the uniqueness and exclusiveness of 'Halfmoon Lake Lodge'. Deer and Elk frequent the property and for this reason the back yard is fenced. Then, to top it off, Glacier National Park with all of its incredible scenery is only 2 miles away.

The home is large with lots of space and privacy. The main floor consists of a living room in the center part of the house with a dividing counter between the kitchen and dinning area. On the west side of the living room are three bedrooms and two baths, one handicap accessible. On the east side is an office, two large bedrooms,bathroom and a /sunroom/greenhouse. On the second floor is a large master suite (500 sq.') with a king size bed, leather sofa, sitting area, desk, bath, and balcony. Full laundry is off the kitchen area. The house has a total of 6 bedrooms, with extra sleeping on couches and the sun room and 4 bathrooms.

The large back yard has flowers and raised garden beds, picnic tables, lounge chairs, BBQ, slide, teeter tooter and a perimeter fence that can be shut to keep small children from roaming out and game animals from wandering in.
On the west side of the house is a kennel, should you want to leave your pet while in the park. On the south side of the house, a cul-de-sac driveway borders a central yard complete with spruce trees, shrubs, and flowers. And to the southeast a small road/path approaches the lake for access. We've moved a small cabin to the lake for fisherman and kids who want to hang out in something different. In addition a small canoe and row boat are availabe. There is limited fishing gear and life vests stored in the fishing cabin. near the lake. This cabin can be used for the adventurous who want to sleep near the lake.

'Halfmoon Lake Lodge is great for small weddings, family groupings (especially the 3 generations...grandparents, adult kids and the grandkids) and larger traveling groups. Everyone has their own space and as well as space to gather and enjoy one another. We are open May through September. Price adjustments are available in the spring and fall. We prefer renting one week at a time, though shorter times may be negotiated.

          Halfmoon Lake House is a large, secluded, private lodge next to Glacier National Park and the Belt Mountains. It's just the place for large groups or three generation get togethers. Halfmoon Lake is within 200 yards. Here we have a small fishing cabin on the Lake,complete with fishing gear, life vests, a canoe, fishing boat and small paddle boat. The lake is non motorized and perfect for canoeing or kyacking as well as fishing. The lodge is located on several acres of private woods, with a large fenced in back yard, a sun room and some out buildings.

          West Glacier is only 5 min. away, complete with shops, rentals, Headquarters, Visitor Centers, rafting, restaurant's, and a golf course.

          Year Purchased: 2014

          About the owner: My brother owned this property for many years and loved the location. He passed away in 2006 and we have been fortunate enough to acquire his dream place and keep it alive. At one time he was intending to build a large lodge on the lake to host groups. We decided to remodel the home and offer it as a vacation place for others to use. We love the location, the mountain views and open scenery. We know you will as well.
