Private Homes house description

Located 4 miles north of beautiful downtown Whitefish, 5 miles from the recreation of Whitefish Mountain Resort and only 30 miles from the West entrance to Glacier National Park, Dreaming Bear Lodge will spoil you in every way.

At over 4,000sf, this luxurious 4bdm, 3-1/2 bath private estate comes complete with a 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 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 spot to read, write or just relax, this is the place for you. (However please know up front that if you want to host lot's of loud outdoor parties, we're sorry, but this is not your place.)

Outside, enjoy star gazing from a your own private, hot tub and patio 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 trails and wildlife. White tail deer, elk, and even an occasional bear or moose visit Dreaming Bear Lodge.

Summer days are spent hiking directly from the house, horseback riding at an area ranch, exploring nearby Glacier National Park just 30 miles away, whitewater rafting, or taking a refreshing dip in Whitefish Lake, just 2 miles away. Riding a Zip Line through the trees, racing on the Alpine Slide or navigating the Aerial Adventure Park are some of the most popular activities on Whitefish Mountain a mere 5 miles away.

If you need to stay connected, you’ll have high-speed wireless internet throughout the lodge.

Email us to check on our schedule as this area only allows 30 day rentals and it is hard to show the actual calendar on VRBO sometimes.

Also, ask us about our 3bdm, 2 bath cottage INSIDE 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!
