Private Homes house description

CALENDAR DOESN'T REFLECT CURRENT BOOKING STATUS, ALWAYS contact me for updated availability.

It is a log home high-bred build by nationally recognized contractor Tom LaChance, Whitefish MT. This home has been featured in numerous Log Home magazines and international magazine in Japan and Europe.

This up-scale Whitefish home is on the East side of Whitefish Lake in Carver Bay. When you walk through the front door of this log-structured home, you will immediately notice the beautiful view of Whitefish Lake. Instantly you'll know you made the right choice. From the rich hard wood floors, randomly covered by oriental rugs, to the soaring river rock fireplace, this warm and inviting home may make it difficult to leave. Understated elegance is a theme throughout this 4,000 square foot home situated overlooking Carver Bay on Whitefish Lake. This home features an open concept floor plan with high ceilings both upstairs and in the daylight (walk-out) downstairs. Are you planning a holiday vacation that includes wrapped presents under a Christmas tree, Thanksgiving dinner, or a long weekend with someone special, you will not be disappointed in this stunningly beautiful Whitefish home.

Whether you want to eat at one of the many fine restaurants in town or throw a steak on the grill, you will enjoy this beautifully designed home with its state-of-the art kitchen, which has been featured in several magazines and one international magazine. And, oh yes... if you want us to put you in contact with a concierge service, or an Outfitter, we can do that as well. With the right amount of notice, they can plan a dinner party, decorate your Christmas tree, organize a dog sled ride, or just stock the refrigerator with your favorite beverages. (Concierge services are billed separately.) And yes, we will provide plenty of firewood. You don't have to be a boy scout to get the fireplace going because there is a gas starter for your convenience.

If you are fortunate to travel with your own Nanny; the entire downstairs could be set-up for her and the children thus leaving you to the upstairs for your own private get away. Works equally as well with grandparents. Privacy is important for all the guests, so to enhance your solitude, this home features a large deck off the master bedroom suite, and a patio off the two lower en suite bedrooms. The large deck off the kitchen and breakfast room features a spacious, open-air stone patio with an in-ground fire pit, fun for when you want to make s'mores or just sit around the fire pit and snuggle...

I have been in contact with private chefs that are willing to work with my guests on a day to day basis. In other words if you want to hike all day and come home to a gourmet meal, that can be arranged. Whether it is a menu that includes a mix grill or sushi and cocktails, Chef Tom can do it all... including clean up. After you book your stay you should contact him immediately as this popular guys calendar will fill up. Further, the chef can coordinate your meals for your entire stay.

Further, with a little planning I can arrange a private cooking classes with another private chef. You can sharpen up your knife skills, learn about wine parings and prepare a meal together with a trained chef or you can sit back and watch.

And if you want a private guide for fly fishing I can arrange that as well. We have a wealth of local knowledge to share that can turn this into the trip of a lifetime.

Corporate Retreats:
Cooking Classes, and Wine Tastings have all taken place here and have been met with enormous enthusiasm. Whether you are getting the team together to have a fierce conversation about next year’s budget, or you just want to put a log on the fire and give some well-deserved “Atta boys” to the crew, this beautiful home overlooking Whitefish Lake is the answer.

Anniversaries:
Begin thinking about the special anniversary for the love of your life or maybe you just need time to rekindle romance that has been neglected by your busy schedule. With a little advance notice and planning we can help you achieve your dream holiday. We can arrange to have an in-house chef, special floral arrangement deliveries, and massages; if you can think of it we can probably do it.

Valentine’s Day:
Book now Valentine’s Day 2014! Arrive Valentine’s Day and let us do the rest. If you want to be original, maybe this is the weekend you want to pop the question to that special someone; maybe on a chair lift or the top of Big Mountain. We can arrange a candle light dinner with your own private chef. With advance planning we can do just about anything you want.

Plastic Surgery Recovery:
Whether you are traveling with your own nurse or by yourself; Whitefish could be a perfect destination to rest and recuperate after a surgical procedure. If this is something that you are interested in you should call for details as each situation is different and requires thoughtful preparation.

If rented as a B&B (in which case the property owner may be in residence) the entire downstairs is self-contained. It includes a large great room with high ceilings and breath taking views of the lake.

Furnishings include sofa and love seat, television, tables and chairs, and a kitchenette with an island. It also has a microwave oven, coffee maker, refrigerator, bar stools, toaster/broiler oven, powder room, and a covered patio. The en suite queen bedrooms each have full bathrooms. This arrangement would be perfect for the person who is frequently in and out of town, a house hunter/buyer, or one who is building in Whitefish and often needs to be on-site. We might be the answer for you. Fishermen, skiers, and adventurers, keep this in mind! (Not suitable for “20-somethings” looking for a place to have a party.) Contact us for more details and rates.

We have a brand new Facebook page with loads of additional pictures of the house and the surrounding area. Please 'Like' us on Facebook. Check us out at, The Lodge at Mountain Shadows.

FYI: We have a strict cancellation policy.

WHITEFISH - The City of Whitefish has been receiving a lot of attention lately. First, National Geographic Magazine called Whitefish Winter Carnival one of the Top 10 in the World. Then, Harper's says Whitefish is one of the Top 25 Best Ski Towns in the World. Now, Vogue Magazine has something to say about Whitefish, comparing it to Aspen, Colorado.

Vogue Magazine has included Whitefish in a Travel article called: Destinations of the Month: Ski Towns, USA. Whitefish is the last town mentioned out of the 6 towns featured. The article compares Whitefish to Aspen. They wrote that the Vibe in Whitefish is like Aspen.

Whitefish residents are reacting in a mixed way, either they're upset that the article was even written, because they don't want the secret to be given away, and others say that Aspen is better than Whitefish...

The Whitefish Winter Carnival and several restaurants were also mentioned in the Vogue article. Other towns like Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Telluride, Colorado were also mentioned in the article.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: I have had several careers and I never expected to be an Inn Keeper of sorts, however, it has been enormously rewarding. I love preparing this home for guests. I particularly like the positive comments from guest about the extra touches my team and I include.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  My late husband and I escaped from California in 1994. We were looking for something we weren't sure what but the place had to be more spectacular than California with high mountains and wide valleys with lots of rivers and lakes. And the people had to be the best! We got lucky to found Whitefish Montana and this has been my home for the last eighteen wonderful years.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I love the fact that I'm so close to town, to the top of Big Mountain and so near the air port. I have the names of a few world class babysitter, however, you need to book well in advance. In the house I love that every lake facing window has a lake view... and it's very hard to see anybodies else's house. Don't over look the fine people of this great little town. You will find the locals are always willing to help.
