Property description

Welcome to Chief Cliff! Relax and have fun in the summer sun on quiet and uncrowded Flathead Lake. This two bedroom lake house includes a separate guest cabin, a large dock and 100 feet of lake front. You will find everything you need here to enjoy a relaxing week or two ... or three!

Boating activities abound; the lake is a wonderful place for water skiing, jet skiing, towing the kids on a tube, or going for a sail. Mornings and evenings are usually calm waters and excellent for kayaking, canoeing or touring the lake. Flathead Lake is 27 miles long, so there is plenty of exploring to do! The shore and private dock are steps away from the main house, and access is across a nearly level lawn. Unlike many properties on the lake, here you do not have to go up and down stairs to get from the yard to the water.

Many visitors are avid fishermen. You can fish from the dock, go out in your boat to those 'special spots', or hire a professional fishing guide at Lakeside.

Enjoy the stories of the day, and the s'mores to go with them around the campfire in the evening. The fire pit is next to the water, and there is firewood for you to use.

The main house has master bedroom w/ bath and queen bed, the second bedroom has a double bed. The living room has a queen hide-a-bed sofa. The living room looks out to the lake; walk through the sliding glass doors to the large covered deck for a quiet place to sit and view the water and mountains, or share a meal on the deck at the picnic table. The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, spices, appliances and serving ware, and there is a propane BBQ grill on the deck. Raining? Look for the ping pong table in the basement.

The charming guest house has one bedroom w/ double bed, kitchen, bathroom and a double-size hide-a-bed sofa in living room. You will enjoy the rustic era of the guest cottage. It was one of the original cabins on the lake.

The property is 1.6 acres, and extends from the lake up to the road. Bring a Frisbee, bocce ball or badminton set to enjoy the large yard. Your kids will enjoy playing hide and seek among the pine trees and will likely spot some wild rabbits, squirrels, and possibly deer making their way across the grounds.

Wild Horse Island, visible from the house, is a state park, and if you travel around it by boat at just the right time, you may see bighorn sheep, or if you are really lucky, the wild horses. To see another state park area, walk down Meadowlark Lane 0.9 miles to Big Arm State Park where you will find a campground at water's edge and hiking trails.

In addition to all the activities to do at the property, there is a lot to see and do in the local area. Many travelers take advantage of the close proximity to Glacier National Park, one of the most stunning natural areas in the Rocky Mountains; the entrance is 90 minutes away. Closer by, the town of Big Fork at the north end of the lake has many tourist activities such as theater, art, shops and restaurants. Polson, just 14 miles away, is your spot for the local farmer's market, groceries, library, golfing and viewing Kerr Dam. Mission Mountain Winery and tasting room is just across the bay, only 5 miles from the house. A half hour drive in another direction can take you to Hot Springs where there are a number of natural hot springs pools.
