Central location on Flathead Lake's west shore south of Lakeside, this one bedroom, cozy log cabin has a queen bed, kitchen, shower, woodstove & a futon couch to sleep 4 comfortably. No boat of your own? We also have a canoe and 2 kayaks available for your use!!! Owners live in the house on the adjacent lot with separate boat dock.

With your own boat dock out the door, there is plenty of room for your water toys! Flathead Lake is like a small ocean, lots of wide open space for everyone! If the mountains are for you - Blacktail ski area is minutes away or pack your lunch & hiking boots to test the trails of Big Mountain, only 40 minutes drive. In Winter, both areas offer great snow skiing! Just two miles to the town of Lakeside, stop to enjoy fine dining, fun shops, the local bars, boat cruises from the bay.

Flathead Lake Simplicity
Flathead Lake Simplicity
A much belated review, we had the pleasure of staying here for a week about 2 months ago -- catching the very tail end of the best summer had to offer! The setting was simple, serene + beautiful. Melanie + Joe are great, accommodating + thoughtful hosts! Unfortunately, we did not have the opportunity to spend time together because of scheduling conflicts. The cabin was clean + well appointed (minus a few kitchen items that maybe only we hardiest of cooks need while vacationing). We really enjoyed the access to the small paddle boat + spent quite a bit of time on the lake the first few days! Reading while sitting out on the patio with a cup of coffee set us out on the right tone every morning + a glass of wine compliments of the host at sunset ended every day perfectly. We really enjoyed the Vitamin Cottage for groceries in Kalispell on our way in from the airport. Day trips to White Fish, Big Fork + Glacier were incredible! We can't wait to go back. Thanks Mel + Joe!

Our stay at Flathead Lake
Melanie & Joe, Thank you for renting your Lakeside cabin to us on our recent trip to Montana! The setting on the lake is fantastic and our stay on Flathead lake was very enjoyable. Your cabin was clean, quiet and very comfortable. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the deck overlooking the lake and the sunsets were absolutely beautiful! We also spent some time on the dock after dark star gazing and were blown away at how much more are visible compared to the city. The close location to the town of Lakeside was very convenient for groceries and dining and other activities. Thanks again! Dan & Alisa

My wife and our 5 month old daughter were looking for a nice place to spend the 4th of July weekend and this cabin was a perfect spot! We enjoyed the fireworks on the first night from the dock. We were a little worried about the noise from the fireworks for our daughter and lab, but the cabin was nice and quiet for them. Our friends joined us with their boat and lab as well. Afternoons were spent on the dock and it was great to have the kayaks to paddle around the bay. Although we didn't want to leave, Lakeside is so close that the few trips we had to make into town were super easy. The owners are close enough to answer any questions, but also left us to enjoy the cabin on our own. We would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a relaxing and fun-filled time on the lake.

Fall Flathead Lake Cabin
Fall Flathead Lake Cabin
This cabin is a real gem. My expectations we exceeded on all factors. This is a stones through from Flathead Lake. You have the relaxing ambiance of the waves on the beach. It is located in close proximity to all the Flathead Valley offers including Glacier Park and Big Mountain and Black Tail Ski areas.

Summer fun in Glacier country
Summer fun in Glacier country
Just got back from a marvelous stay at Flathead Lake. Mel and Joe were great hosts, assisting us with various things, and even providing a great welcoming basket of goodies for us to enjoy! The location is pristine, and in the best spot on the entire lake. Town of Lakeside is full of friendly, helpful, and modest people. No elitism here. Just hard working people trying to assure your pleasure, while visiting this piece of heaven. Hiked Glacier National, a short 45 minutes away, and saw the beautiful town of Whitefish, and Kalispell. Whitefish lake is a must also, and can be reached in 30 minutes from the cabin. Tamarak Brewery in town is great. We purchased a growler and filled it with a fresh new brew every couple of days. Pulled our boat to Flathead, and the dock and facilities at this cabin are wonderful with great mooring, dock lights, and great ladder to lake providing for wonderful late afternoon swims. Can't imagine going a year without returning to this special place. Oh, and buy the way, returned with over 25 pounds of Mackinaw fillets in the cooler. What fun! See you all next year........

Very nice log cabin located right on Flathead Lake. Perfect for a couple. It was clean and well-maintained and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The sunrises are beautiful! We loved being able to bring both our dogs and our boat.

Beautiful Lakeside, Montana Vacation
Beautiful Lakeside, Montana Vacation
August 2 - August 8th, 2012 - Such a beautiful peaceful place. Our family of three (3) truly enjoyed out stay, 8 days in total. Cabin has everything you need. Its was great to cook at home and sit on the balcony and just enjoy the sunsets, or go for a swim, amazing..just like your photos. Loved the wildlife and Ospreys everyday. Thanks for the use of the water toys. Took the Kayaks out everyday, which gave us a much better appreciation of the homes from the water. Plus we did bring our own paddle board. Warm waters to jump in, weather HOT. Could not have asked for more. Lakeside is a wonderful place, has everything, including restaurants near by. Big Fork great for shopping, Somers for biking or walking the historical paved path, or steak dinner or both, yummy! Kalispel great too. Melanie and Joe and family gave us the best hospitality, answered all our questions and places to see and things to do. Such a warm welcome. Thank you and when in Calgary or Banff for skiing please look us up, we will be there to show you around. Rose, Dayna and Dave Clay Calgary, Alberta Canada

About the owner: We are native Montanans, Joe is a CPA, I am a retired Insurance Agency owner. We have invested in farms & ranches for the past 20 years. Between us we have 8 children, ages 12 to 32.
Why the Owner Chose Lakeside:
Both Montanan natives, we moved from the eastern side of the state to the Valley many years ago. Living in Whitefish & Rollins before settling in Lakeside, we decided Flathead Lake is our favorite place to be summer or winter. The views are amazing in any season, the lake an ever-changing tapestry with wind, snow & ice, sunshine & blue skies, fog, rain, sunrises & sunsets. We are on the lake for summer fun but also close to ski areas in the winter....
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
WOW! Montana at its finest! The Flathead Lake is amazing area .... whatever the season, the views change daily! Central location for you to base from while you enjoy your summer/fall/winter vacation plans.
