About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This amazing mountain retreat is available all year long. Spend Thanksgiving or Christmas in a winter retreat or rent it for a summer vacation you will never forget! Ashley Lake is a very private mountain lake with incredible blue color due to its clay bottom. Huge trout and salmon inhabit its deep waters. Elk, moose, wolves, and deer are all found in this area. This quiet lake is the perfect spot for a family vacation, romantic getaway, or adventurous trip to Montana. Pet's love a vacation here as well.

The cabin has a large master suite with a king-sized bed with views overlooking the lake and its own full bathroom. An additional bath with a shower is located on the main floor. The entire group can eat around the large dining table. Couch with a hide-a-bed is perfect for afternoon naps after a long hike in the mountains. Twin sized bed off of the living area is perfect for kids.

Downstairs with its own entrance is another bedroom, with connecting full bath, full-sized bed, and washer and dryer.

The deck with its amazing views is equipped with a outdoor table and barbecue. You will want to eat our here every night and enjoy the loons song and sunsets.
Enjoy incredible sunsets off the large deck. The master bedroom has glass doors which allow you to wake up to the lake views. In the evening roast marshmallows beside a large campfire or enjoy a glass of wine on the deck listening to the loons.

Ashley lake is only 12 miles west of Kalispell. A quiet lake with very few boats on it. You feel like you have it all to yourself yet restaurants, shopping, Glacier National Park, Flathead lake, Kalispell, and many other activities are only a short drive away. If you are looking for some peace and quiet in a very scenic mountain getaway than this is the place for you.

If you love to golf then get ready! Golf Digest named the Flathead valley a top 50 golf course destination. With nine championship courses all within a 45-minute drive.

The cabin is only a 45-minute drive from Glacier International Airport and an hour from Glacier National Park, Big Mountain Ski Resort, Black Tail Ski Resort, Flathead Lake, and Big Fork. It would take an entire summer for you to experience all that the Flathead valley has to offer!

Boat rentals and jet ski rentals are available in Kalispell. There is public launch site on Ashley Lake. For more information, please call us.

A vacation at the Ashley Lake Hideaway will be your best vacation ever!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are montana natives who purchased this property as an investment while we were living in Texas. We are now living back in our hometown of Kalispell, Montana.

Why the Owner Chose Kalispell, MT, USA:
We have spent a lot of time on this lake and own a family cabin across from our rental. This lake is the perfect place for us to get away and relax with our children. Fishing, hunting and boating are all activities we love to do and can all be done while staying at Ashley Lake.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The peace and quiet. Watching and listening to the loons and other wildlife. Fishing is great! There are very few boats on this lake so you usually feel like you have it all to yourself. This lake is only one of several in Montana that have the unique and beautiful Loons on it plus lots of other wonderful wildlife.
