Renovated fifties lake house built by the local car dealer to be the jewel of Flathead Lake. We loved the 50s lake house feel and left much of the original charm. As the lot was split and a single-story home built in front, we do not have lake access. We do have beautiful views of the lake 100 yards away.
You will find the lake ever-present while you spend time at 'home'. The bedroom, living room and kitchen windows all look out onto the lake. Our favorite room, the sunroom, is full of light with over 30 feet of windows, 2 queen-size beds and it's own private entrance.
The bedrooms have beautiful log beds, dressers, and a writing desk. The beds are high quality and comfortable with linens selected for their high thread count.
The living room has a queen-size futon couch, excellent wood stove and flat screen TV. We have a varied selection of DVDs, books and games.
The fifties kitchen features a maple table which seats six. We provide a set of good pots and pans, dishes, silverware, quality bakeware, coffee grinder and maker, toaster, microwave and blender. Everything you need to make, serve and enjoy a great meal is here including a small cookbook library.
The 3/4 bath is full of fifties charm including the turquoise built-in tiled shower.
The covered deck has a teak table with cooler and seats six. It is a great place for an evening barbecue or to gaze at the sunset over the lake.
The lawn is well-loved with flowerbeds, fruit trees and space enough for croquet, badminton, or soccer.
Our philosophy as landlords is to provide excellent, high-quality accommodations with an eye for detail and beauty. There is a $500 security, damage and cleaning deposit ($300 off season) - refundable if the property is properly cared for and returned in the condition you found it, well-cleaned at check out. Reservations may be cancelled within 60 days of stay for full refund.
We are conveniently located near all services- city, lake, parks, marinas, fishing and boat rentals.
A small undeveloped wetlands/woods to the east provides a haven for the wildlife-- deer, raccoon, fox, ducks and geese, doves and songbirds, gulls, eagles, owls and hawks—often spied from our property.

A hundred yards north, the old railroad bed has been converted into a 15-mile non-motorized walk/bike path. Several nice biking loops using this path and the country roads south of town are available. WE PROVIDE SOME BIKES BUT DO NOT HAVE HELMETS AND OTHER SAFETY GEAR.

Your dogs are welcome but we ask that you keep the mud and burrs outdoors, and keep dogs off the furniture and beds.

Kerr Dam spillway provides oxygen rich water for a variety of species from trout to bass and pike.

The Flathead River and several mountain lakes offer still more fishing opportunities.
