Private Homes house description

The Clayton House is the most charming home available in downtown Whitefish and has been featured on the front page of the Whitefish Pilot and in Flathead Living. It was built around 1903 to be Whitefish's 'Southside' First Presbyterian Church. In later years it was converted into a beautiful house and remains that way today. It has been beautifully restored offering refinished, original wood floors, spacious bedrooms with queen beds in each room with the large master suite being on the main floor. There is granite and tile in the bathrooms, a fantastic fully outfitted kitchen with granite countertops and high end appliances, a nice dining room with antique hand made table, and a mud room entering from the back of the house with storage for your gear. There is also a washer and dryer so you can come in after a hard day of playing and get your things cleaned right up.

The location is perfect being just one block to Whitefish hotspots such as Mambo's, Loulas, Pescado Blanco, Swift Creek Cafe, 2nd Steet Pizza, The White room Ski Shop, Glacier Cyclery, and just 2 blocks to Central Ave., the Farmer's Market, Gallery Nights, the SNOW bus pick up and two of Whitefish's best parks on the Whitefish River. It is also located just down the street from Whitefish Lake Golf Club, which also offers cross country skiing in the winter, and The Wave Fitness Center. Hop on your bike and it's just a short ride on the bike path along Whitefish River to City Beach at Whitefish Lake. You'll love being able to get to and from the shops, restaurants, and all that Whitefish has to offer with such ease.

                    My children and I stayed here for 4 nights over our spring break. What a comfortable house! The kitchen was great and we loved spending nights by the fire. The house is close to just about everything in Whitefish and it was super easy to get to the ski hill as well. We would definitely stay here again!

                    We had a group of six for President's Day weekend. It fit our group perfectly. We took the train in (some from Portland, some from Spokane), but not having a car wasn't a problem at all. We could easily walk into town and to the shuttle to the mountain.

                    We had 3 couples stay here for a big ski trip. It was an awesome house for families and it had a perfect location. Downtown Whitefish was literally a 2 minute walk from the house and we were able to catch the SNOW bus up the mountain for skiing every morning. The house was immaculate, comfortable, charming, and was fully stocked with kitchenware, plenty of towels, etc. We loved our time in Whitefish very much. We will definitely stay here again when we come back. The property manager was friendly, prompt in answering questions and very flexible with our requests. This is an ideal place to stay when visiting Whitefish.

                    This house could not have been more perfect. I stayed there with three close friends, as we were in town for a wedding. The accommodations were exactly what you are looking for when staying away from home; the house was extremely clean, the bathrooms were modern and up to date, and the beds were very comfortable. The location was also ideal and within walking distance to anything a Whitefish guest would need! While the kitchen was immaculate and new, we woke up every morning and walked five minutes to grab coffee; excellent location! The photos don't do the house justice; it had great character but excellent facilities. The owner was also extremely helpful, and even went out of his way to send me my favorite scarf, which I had absentmindedly left somewhere in the house! I would definitely recommend this property to my family and to any friend looking for a lovely home to stay in while in Whitefish. Overall, a lovely stay!

                    This house was great! Perfect for a nice getaway, with everything you want when you are not at home; cozy rooms, comfortable beds, excellent kitchen, and clean, modern bathrooms with seemingly unlimited hot water! The photos didn't do the house justice, it was the perfect home away from home and is very well maintained. The location is even better; on a quiet street one block from downtown. We woke up every morning and walked five minutes to lovely coffee shops and great shopping. The owner was also very helpful and responsive; I left my favorite scarf somewhere in the house, and the owner not only found it for me, but shipped it to me within days. I would definitely recommend this property to a family member or friend--only I'd make sure it wasn't a weekend I was going back to Whitefish, as I'd love to stay here again!

                    On our first ever visit to Montana we chose Whitefish because of friends' recommendations. My wife and I, our three grown children and spouses had the time of our lives. We hiked in "Glacier" almost everyday, paddled the middle fork of the Flathead River, pontooned on Whitefish Lake, and rode mountain bikes. Clayton House had everything we needed and accomodated our group wonderfully. We had to ask Chap about possibly getting an air mattress for a visiting nephew and he brought it over very quickly. When we come back, we plan to stay at Clayton house again. Greg from Georgia

                    We stayed at Clayton House for 2 weeks. Our group ranged in age from 14 to 65 years old. When we weren't hiking in Glacier everyone enjoyed Whitefish. The older folks visited the shops and restaurants while the youngsters were free to fish in the river - all a short walk from the house. Chap also put us in contact with great guides for river fly fishing trips. Whitefish is a charming city and a great home base to enjoy the Glacier area.

                    We had a wonderful time staying at the Clayton House over the holiday weekend. It's a few minute walk to the downtown area with restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and other fun shops. We thoroughly enjoyed the covered front porch, with a bench swing and a few rocking chairs. The home is tastefully updated and was very comfortable for our group of 6 adults and 1 toddler. I was delighted when I emailed the owner just a few days before our arrival and he was able to provide a high chair and pack-n-play for our little one. We hope to return to this lovely home in Whitefish sometime soon!

                    Great house and location! Slept 8 comfortably. Within a couple blocks walking distance to fabulous restaurants, shopping, jogging trails. 2 blocks from ski bus pick up location. House was clean and well maintained with nice kitchen and updated appliances and everything you may need. Will definitely rent again and can't wait to return to Whitefish! Thank you for a great stay!

HERE'S A PICTURE OF CLAYTON ENJOYING A DAY AT WHITEFISH MOUNTAIN RESORT.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER HOME IN WHITEFISH THAT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A LOCAL AND ALSO FEEL AT HOME.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I THINK YOU WILL REALLY ENJOY THE LOCATION OF THIS HOUSE AND IT GIVES YOU A FEELING OF BEING PART OF THE TOWN. SINCE THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS TO DO HERE THAT WILL TAKE YOU IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS, IT'S NICE TO BE STAYING SOMEWHERE THAT'S CONVENIENT TO EVERYTHING. BEING ABLE TO WALK OUT OF YOUR DOOR AND STROLL THROUGH TOWN IS NOT ONLY CONVENIENT BUT QUITE ENJOYABLE. YOU COULD CHOOSE TO STAY ON BIG MOUNTAIN, ON THE LAKE, OR A MAYBE A AT CABIN IN THE WOODS, BUT YOU WILL FIND THAT YOU HAVE TO DRIVE TO DO ANYTHING INCLUDING SIMPLE THINGS LIKE GROCERY SHOPPING, DINING OUT, ENJOYING THE TOWN'S NIGHTLIFE, ETC. WHEN YOU STAY AT THE CLAYTON HOUSE, YOU WILL NOT ONLY BE ENJOYING A CHARMING HOME THAT HAS A WONDERFUL HISTORY, BUT YOU WILL FIND IT EASY TO RELAX AND ENJOY WHITEFISH AS WELL.
