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.

OUR GENERAL SETTING

Everything is within walking distance. Within a few hundred feet you will find groceries, banking, gas/car wash, Steve's video rental, espresso, McDonald's, Ace Hardware, and Pizza Hut.

Burgerville, Polson’s favorite fast food (seafood baskets, burgers, chicken, malts) is directly across the street. The Hot Spot, an excellent, family-run Thai restaurant, is 4 doors down.

Lake opportunities are a minute's walk away. Nearby you will find The Marina At Polson (406 883-3636) offering boat put in dock slips, jet ski/boat rentals and scenic lake cruises. Further down Glacier Raft company (406 883-5838) offers daily white water trips, chartered fishing and sea kayak and paddle board rentals.

Beotchler Park is ½ mile (ten minutes walk) east. The Park has a picnic area, swimming, showers, zero-entry beach for young swimmers, playset, swings, horseshoes, volleyball, concessions, paddleboat rentals, and the Port Polson Players live summer theatre.

Polson Bay Golf Club, the largest course in the area (27 holes) and only course directly on the shore of Flathead Lake is 1/4 mile from our door. Summer rates are nine holes for $28 or 18 for $48. Two other courses are within 20 minutes drive. Nine more courses are between 45 minutes and 1 1/2 hours drive. All totaled, there are 216 holes of beautiful, challenging golf in the area.
Polson, the largest town on Flathead Lake, offers art galleries, book stores, gift shops, dining, health food, yoga classes, a 2-screen movie theater, Kwa Tuq Nuk Best Western Casino, and several city lake parks.

A designated bike trail runs in front of the house and connects to Polson (west) and the Walmart/Safeway shopping center (east). 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.

Hunting opportunities abound. Pablo Reservoir National Wildlife Area --10 minutes from our door, provides refuge to upland birds and roughly 80,000 ducks. Hunting is available on thousands of acres of State and Salish Kootenai Tribe lands. One-half hour south, Ninepipe National Wildlife Area offers still more great habitat and hunting. Your dogs are welcome but we ask that you keep the mud and burrs outdoors, and keep dogs off the furniture and beds.

Fishing is also a great way to spend the day. The Jocko River offers excellent catch-and-release trout fishing. Kerr Dam spillway provides oxygen rich water for a variety of species from trout to bass and pike. Flathead Lake is a well-know lake trout fishery with an unlimited catch limit during Mack Days when anglers can win prize money of up to $5,000 for tagged fish. The Flathead River and several mountain lakes offer still more fishing opportunities.

We are located on the Salish/Kootenai reservation which offers great sightseeing from the 114 year-old Pow Wow at Arlee to the moving frescoes at St. Ignatius mission, to the National Bison Range. The stunning Mission Mountain Wilderness has dozens of lakes and offers great day hikes. The Garden of Ten Thousand Buddhas, 50 miles south, offers peace and inspiration for the spiritual traveler.

Glacier National Park, 73 miles north is a great one-day adventure; your family will always remember the drive to Logan Pass at the top of Going to the Sun Road.

Finally, you can easily drive around Flathead Lake (105 miles) in a day, with plenty of time to enjoy the many quaint towns, bays, wineries, orchards, state parks and beaches along the way.
