Our minimum stay is 30 days. This quaint adobe style bungalow is a quick, 2 block walk downtown Whitefish, a few steps from the Whitefish River and 1 block from the free snow bus that will take you right up to the base lodge at Whitefish Mountain Resort. Our property sits right on the Whitefish River paddle to Whitefish Lake, fish or take a dip. Our section of the river is also great for swimming.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2000

          About the owner: Our backgrounds are southern, Southern California and Georgia. We have been hosts on VRBO for several years with our other property out of town 407110 and have had a great experience with the VRBO service. We love living in Montana and ski, trail run, mountain bike, jet ski, you name it, we love to be outside. We take good care of our guests and our reviews are proof! Check out some of our reviews on our other property 407110. We look forward to meeting you and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the area, or our property.

          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
          We are just a few blocks from downtown, close enough to walk easily for breakfast, lunch, dinner , a drink or ice cream in the evening. Farmers Markets in the summer months are on Tuesday evenings and are also right downtown. If you stay in the winter, you can walk a block and jump on the free snow bus shuttle that will take you up to Whitefish Mountain Resort.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Our property is in town but also right on the Whitefish River, the best of both worlds. The house is set back from the street for privacy and the house is very comfortable. It is 1940's design and a stucco exterior, full of character, vintage furniture, cozy, beautiful hardwood floors and lots of light.
