Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Owners are native Montanans, Brent grew up in Great Falls and Barb's family on both sides were homesteaders here. She was born in Kalispell. Her Grandmother donated the land for the Presbyterian camp on Flathead lake which was her homestead. Barb and Brent met and graduated from Montana State University, lived around the country coming back in 1970 from Crete, Greece to raise their family . Brent owned and operated a contractor lumber yard and now manages a ProBuild contractor yard. Barb taught school for 4 years, was a stay at home mom, and then was a Doncaster clothing consultant. Their residence is across the lane from the apartments. They have three married children living in Tokyo, Japan, San Clemente, CA and Seattle WA, and 6 grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Lakeside:
Our children grew up with a cabin on a lake to go to in the summer. Since they now are married and away, we wanted a dual purpose property, year-round and vacation type, so when we found this, it could house all of our children, spouses and growing number of grandchildren. Our children have a place to all be together and their children can also enjoy what their parents grew up with and loved so much. Our children and grandchildren love the tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life that Lakeside offers. They can hardly wait to come each year. Furthermore, Lakeside is a perfectly sized small town. It's small enough that you know most people, but large enough to have multiple restaurants, stores, and all the needed amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Being on site owners and having grown up and lived here for 40 plus years, we know the area , and have many connections so can answer or get answers for most questions or problems.
