Property description

Welcome to the Bitterroot Lake House. We are excited to share our home with you. We are located on beautiful Bitterroot Lake about twenty miles west of Kalispell, Montana. This lake is approximately 3000 acres and is known for its lack of boat traffic and great fishing. It has unique areas for fishing and is also an excellent water sports lake. We do have both a dock and a boat lift for your use. A public boat ramp is just a short distance from the house. Our frontage is shallow and allows for a great place for children to splash and swim in the water.
The home features four spacious bedrooms and three and one-half baths. Three of the bedrooms feature queen sized beds with the master having its own bath. The fourth bedroom in the basement level has three twin beds. Each level of the house also has a full bath. Every room in the home has picturesque view of the lake. There are three distinct living spaces in the home. We have the living room on the main floor, a large TV-media room on the upper floor, and a lounge area in the basement level with a futon available for extra sleeping. This space leads directly out to the yard with the lake beyond. There we feature a hot and cold outdoor shower for those quick rinse-offs after a day on the lake. Also, a fire pit is available for enjoying those beautiful, sometimes cool, Montana evenings and don’t forget the s’mores.
Our home should have all you need for a great stay. The kitchen is equipped with all of the basics you may need. We do provide some staples such as flour, sugar, spices, paper products, and detergents for dishes and laundry. The linens are of nice quality and bath towels and beach towels are provided. There is also a washer and dryer for your use if need be.
Besides the great lake fun you can have, there are a numerous activities for the whole family. You can visit Glacier National Park for hiking, scenic viewing, and animal watching. You can also shop, zipline, whitewater raft, golf, ski, and enjoy many other activities. Any season lends itself to a great stay at this beautiful Bitterroot Lake home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Greg and I have been married for 27 years. We have five children and one daughter-in-law. Greg grew up in Montana on the prairie, and I grew up in Iowa. Greg's family has farmed for over 100 years. He now farms and works for a gas and oil company. I have learned to be a farmer's wife, and I teach school and chase kids. Our children range in age from 29 to 13. They are wonderful and bring us great joy. We are hoping to share this home with them and their families in the future.

Why the Owner Chose Kalispell:
We fell in love with this house because it just fit us. The home is of our taste in that it is not too flashy and makes us feel comfortable. We love the size, the number of bedrooms, and the extra living spaces so that we can spread out if we want to. The yard, deck, hot tub, and outdoor spaces are great for family fun. We are close to the attractions but away from the all the crowds when we want to be. The lake is great for water fun and can meet the needs for the whole family from fishing, to swimming, to boating and water sports.
