Whitefish Lake lodge description

This is a dream home for your family and friends to enjoy on their vacation. Situated right on Whitefish Lake with a dock and a commanding view from the boathouse roof patio, it is hard to beat. It is a log home constructed by nationally recognized contractor Tom LaChance. This home has been featured in both Log Home Living and Cowboy magazine. It has all of the charm and coziness of a log 'cabin' but has the dramatic component of floor to vaulted ceiling windows, three levels of decks, lovely terraced garden of native rock, not to mention a beautiful river rock wood-burning fireplace. Whole log furniture make nights by the firelight very special. People will be calling dibs on the ample window seat for afternoon naps.

It is located on the sunny side of the lake where both sunrises and sunsets are enjoyed. The small round pebbled beach has a 'grandfathered' boathouse...a very coveted and rare thing. There is a gang plank from the stone steps to the roof of the boathouse. The view is awe-inspiring.

Majestic ponderosas frame the home perfectly. The lake colors, reflected light and the perfect composition of these trees cause one to constantly be reaching for their cameras. Did I mention spotting scope? It is a special place for bird watching. Loons, hummingbirds. evening grosbecks, pileated woodpeckers, bald eagles are common sights in season.

The upper deck is an extension of your living space with a propane barbecue and 'cabin' seating consisting of willow and Adorondeck. The deck and grounds are irrigated so in summer there are always gorgeous flowers in pots, hanging baskets and in the terraced rock garden.

On the middle deck is an appealing porch swing ready for rocking your sweetheart or grandchildren. Also, on this level is the brand new hot tub which sits four. It is privately tucked in against a rock wall but the lake and sky view are lovely. Access to the tub is right by the back door which takes you to a large bath complete with a steam shower. The mudroom is right there to hang the wet bathing suits or dry the ski clothes.

          This log home is extraordinarily beautiful and comfortable. The pictures speak a thousand words.

          It is located on the east side of the Whitefish Lake. Majestic ponderosas frame the view of the lake and distant mountains.

          There are three levels of decks. In addition, the view and peace can be experienced from the rooftop deck of the boathouse.

          There is a hot tub privately positioned on the second deck but open to the view and sky. The grounds are beautifully kept with terraces of flowers and aspens.

          With two stories of windows and patios doors off of the great room the views and light off of the water are always with you. There is a river rock fireplace with over-sized log furniture nestled around it. A window seat beckons for an afternoon nap. The dining room table is made of massive timbers with eight old hickory chairs that create a setting for great meals and conversation.

          The kitchen is charming and complete. The exposed logs and Butcher block counter make it a pleasure to be in. On the main level is a bedroom with two twin beds and a 4 piece bath.

          The loft bedroom has a balcony that extends out over the great room with the unobstructed view out to the lake. French doors can close off the world below. The 4 piece ensuite has a vintage cast iron claw foot tub adored with hand-painted wildflowers....the view from the tub is so amazing.

          The lower level has a room with two bunk beds....and the view of the lake. The entertainment room has a large screen t.v. with two great lazy boys and a very comfortable sofa bed. There is a great wood burning stove.

          The 4 piece bath has a stream shower. Complete mud room with washer/dryer. On the lower deck is a porch swing.

          The upper deck has a large barbecue. Willow and adirondack chairs make the grouping perfect.

          There is parking for four cars. For winter renters, all wheel drive vehicles are recommended.

          The picturesque and nationally recognized ski hill is only 15 minutes away! Snow mobile trails are only 2 miles away. When the lake freezes, the cross country skiing, skating and ice fishing is just waiting outside the door.

          The town of Whitefish has charming shops and a great variety of restaurants. Cultural opportunities are out-standing with the fine art galleries and live theater. And, of course, Glacier National Park is on the doorstep.

          Several outstanding golf courses are close-by.

          Please no smoking. Please no cats. A dog with conditions.
