Property description

A wide array of activities can be found right in your backyard. The Beaver Lake area is very unique in it's proximity to Whitefish, yet it can feel like you are miles from it all in just a short walk from the house. Murray Lake is the closets lake to the house, about 1 mile, and aside from the resident loons many times you can have the entire lake to yourself. Murray, like all of the other lakes in the area are known for fishing, swimming or just a picnic on the shore. Also within walking distance from the house is the Whitefish Trail system which provides access to 26 miles of natural surface trail covering over 13,000 acres of forested land, scenic overlooks and 6 pristine lakes.

bedroom 1- queen bed (adjoining to room #2)
bedroom 2- two twin beds, full bath
bedroom 3- one full bed with private full bath

18ft tipi can sleep as many as you want to pile in there depending how close you are. Lots of blankets available, but need to provide your own sleeping bags.
Kitchen is open to living and dining area. There is a half bath and laundry off of the kitchen. While the house is a wonderful home base for your stay, the real selling point of this home is the serenity and beauty of the outdoor setting. Biking and hiking trails await you just out your front door. As well as numerous lakes perfect for and afternoon swim or an early morning fishing session. It is far enough from town to feel like you are in the middle of nowhere letting the world go by, but its only a quick 15 minute drive into town to get necessities.
