Private Homes house description

Located 4 miles north of downtown Whitefish and just 5 miles from the recreation of Whitefish Mountain, Dreaming Bear Lodge will spoil you in every way.

At 4,500 sf, this luxurious 4bdm, 3-1/2 bath private estate comes complete with a chef’s dream gourmet kitchen with Viking appliances, a great room with river rock wood burning fireplace and soaring 24' windows with breathtaking mountain and valley views, a master suite with sitting area, and a master bath with both a soaking
tub and a glass wall shower. Downstairs you’ll find a workout area with weights, an elliptical and a treadmill, as well as your own private soundproof movie theater, complete with a popcorn machine!

Located in a quiet neighborhood, we are very respectful of our neighbors. If you're looking for quiet solitude and a wonderful to read, write or just relax, this is the place for you.

Outside, enjoy star gazing from a your own private, brand new hot tub and deck overlooking the adjacent woods, or relax with a glass of wine while barbecuing on the upper deck. As our home and beautifully landscaped lawn is adjacent to several hundred wooded acres, we are blessed with an abundance of wildlife. White tail deer, elk, and even an occasional bear or moose visit Dreaming Bear Lodge.

Summer days are spent hiking from the house on miles of trails connecting to Whitefish Mountain, horseback riding at an area ranch, exploring nearby Glacier National Park just 15 miles away, whitewater rafting, or taking a refreshing dip in Whitefish Lake, just 2 miles
away. A waterski boat is available for an additional cost- just ask us for the details. Riding a Zip line, racing on the Alpine Slide, are also available a few miles away.

If you need to stay connected, you’ll have high-speed wireless internet throughout the lodge, decks, and even the hot tub. :)

Email us to check on our schedule as we can sometimes accommodate last minute changes and lengths of stay.

Also, ask us about our 3bdm, 2 bath cottage IN Glacier National Park!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: We LOVE Montana and greatly appreciate the opportunity to share it with you. We travel a great deal for business and pleasure and while we're gone, we enjoy sharing our paradise with others who appreciate the finer things in life.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      Dreaming Bear Lodge is the best of all worlds..... convenient location yet very private.... wooded yet with spectacular views.... reasonably priced yet high end luxury... great relaxed vibe about the property and good energy. We encourage awesome people to stay here. :)

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We fell in love with this property from seeing the stately way it's located on the hilltop, and the views are breathtaking! Inside... from the soaring ceiling in the great room, to the floor to ceiling rock fireplace (made from local river rocks), to the natural log accents and the elk antler chandelier, Dreaming Bear is Montana elegance in a private setting. The theater is another thing that we love too!
