Jane's Place is located on a gently sloping acre, on the East shore of Flathead Lake in Northwestern Montana. Jane's Place overlooks Flathead Lake and the famous Flathead Cherry orchards. We are about 12 miles south of Bigfork.
We have a 'private' beach, a short walk down through the property, about 3 mins, with a 50' wooden dock and concrete boat ramp, open for your use. (It's a little longer walk on the way up!). Older or physically challenged guests are always welcome to drive right onto the beach. The beach is of the small rocky type. Beach chairs, loungers, tables and umbrellas are available for your use. Campfires on the beach are allowed at some times of the year, please inquire.
Our driveway is shared with our neighbors to the north.
Jane's Place is comfortable and set up with the basics, and then some. The kitchen is simple and clean. It comes fully equipped with cookware, dishes, glassware, stemware, plenty of silverware, cooking utensils and more, just ask!! Also provided are basic spices, fresh coffee beans, a grinder & tea. The stove is electric, the fridge is a new large stainless GE model and there is a roll out dish-washer with a large butcher block top.
Sleeping Arrangements: There are 3 bedrooms. Upstairs on the main floor, there are two bedrooms, they are on the small side but they are comfortable, fresh and clean. The first, the Lake View room, has a new Queen bed with soft cotton sheets and plenty of pillows. The second room upstairs, The Garden room, also has a new Queen bed as well. This bedroom contains one of the 3 full bathrooms. You will find the master bedroom, with the most wonderful king size bed on the planet, downstairs as well as one of the three full bathrooms. The master bedroom opens onto the lower deck, (1 of 3 decks!) and hot tub. The living room has one queen pull out sleeper sofa and a new Queen bed lounge area that is made into a bed. There is also another 'regular' sofa (leather) that a person could sleep on. There is a single trundle bed, sleeps 2, downstairs off the master and laundry rooms. This it is not 'officially' a separate bedroom. It has draperies dividing it off and is a great place for kids. It also stays nice and cool in the Summer months. We also have a single bed, outside, on the lower deck for outdoor sleeping during the warmer evenings.

Bathroom Arrangements: There are 3 full bathrooms. The 'master bath' is downstairs with a beautiful walk in tiled shower. There's another bathroom with a shower in the garden bed room and a main floor bathroom with shower and tub down the hall from the kitchen and living areas. The two bathrooms upstairs are sometimes considered on the small side, but they are clean, fresh and serve their purpose.
The front deck off the kitchen has a large charcoal BBQ/smoker, charcoal & lighter fluid are provided. All bedding and towels are provided. PLEASE bring your own beach towels, house towels are not allowed on the beach.

PETS: Well behaved adult NON-SHEDDING dogs are welcome at Jane's Place. No puppies. The Pet Fee is $10.00 per pet per night. They MUST be pre-approved. A copy of current vaccination records must be faxed PRIOR to your reservation being confirmed. Pets require an additional Security Deposit, $200.00 per pet. 2 dog max.
Check in is 4 p.m. or later. Check out is 11 a.m. Check with us for other arrangements.

Flathead Lake is a FANTASTIC vacation destination, Jane's Place would love to share it with you!!
If you are looking for a place to 'PAR-TAY', this is not the rental for you. Please look elsewhere. We do not accept rentals from guests under the age of 30. Most people are here to enjoy family, the lake, the beauty this area affords and the ability to 'chill'. Loud, drunken parties and abusive language are not appreciated. We are sorry to report that we have stopped renting to bridal or bachelor parties unless you are " a friend of Bill's".
During your stay I will be, at times, out and about to maintain the gardens and hot tub as needed, and nearby to lend a hand if need be. We have a large property which requires a lot of maintenance, so we hope you will understand this, but I do stay out of your hair and generally am not there.
Please remember we are located amongst the active cherry orchards of Flathead Lake. During the Summer months, June, July and August, the harvest is on and farming activities around the home are in a heightened state, farm machinery, pickers etc.
We encourage all guests to purchase travel insurance. Jane's Place Montana reserves the right to cancel any reservation for any reason with a full refund.
Jane's Place is listed through the Polson Montana Chamber of Commerce. Please contact 'Jane' for special rates dependent on your length of stay.
Thank you for considering Jane's Place Montana on Flathead Lake for your vacation. I hope to hear from you soon!
Maps & Map quest do not have the property listed correctly. Jane's Place is on Flathead Lake, not the Swan. Please call for directions. Check our board out on Pinterest and Jane's Place Montana page on Facebook!

Why the Owner Chose Bigfork:
I am blessed to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world, it's an honor to share my home and the beauty this area has to offer with my visitors. Hosting guests is really pleasure that I enjoy. Jane's Place on Flathead Lake does not consider itself 'fancy' nor does the term 'upscale' come into our vocabulary. What we are is family run, clean and comfy. We want you to feel at home and have most of the conveniences of home while enjoying the beauty of the Montana countryside and Flathead Lake.
