About the property

3 bedroom plus loft 2 bath close to Big Arm State Park

This custom home features 3 Bedrooms plus a sleeping loft, 2 baths and a rec room with plenty of parking. You will enjoy your time on beautiful Flathead Lake with your family in this 2600 square foot home located on 100 feet of Flathead Lake frontage between Big Arm and Elmo.

On the main floor, there is an open floor plan with a kitchen, dining, fireplace and living room with large floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking Flathead Lake. The dining room has a table that seats 6 and there is a bar that seats 3 people. Large sliding doors take you outside to the deck where you will be able to BBQ, relax and enjoy the view and beautiful summer weather. The master bedroom, one bathroom and large laundry room complete the main floor. Up a staircase in your loft, you will find it nicely appointed with two sleeper chairs that make into twin beds plus a fold out couch. Downstairs there is another family room with seating, a fireplace, flat screen TV, DVD player and room for little ones to play, and two bedrooms and a bath complete the lower level. There are sliding glass doors that walk out onto a second deck on the lower level.

The master bedroom contains a king bed and joins the bathroom on the main floor. The two bedrooms in the lower level are queen bedrooms, the loft includes a queen sleeper sofa, and two chairs that each make into twin beds.

Your family can play on the beach down at the water’s edge, make yummy S'mores in the fire pit located down by the water, enjoy sunbathing on the floating dock, and experience water activities on a paddleboat, kayaks and stand up paddleboards, which are included for your convenience. As long as the water is calm, you can tie up your boat to the floating dock, but if there are any waves, we ask you to tie your boat to the buoy out in the water.

The kitchen is fully appointed with a BBQ grill on the deck, beach towels, fresh towels and linens complement your stay.

We are situated on a lovely lane that connects to Big Arm State park, which you can walk down each morning before you start your day of fun water and sun activities. Polson is a short 15 mile drive from our house, where you can find shopping, a movie theatre and many activities throughout the summer. Big Fork is 39 miles away where you can enjoy a play at the renowned Big Fork Summer Playhouse and many fine restaurants. Kalispell International airport is approximately 46 miles away and the train station in Whitefish is 53 miles away. Glacier Park is only a 72 mile drive, which can easily be made into a day trip during your stay if you choose to visit one the prettiest national parks in the United States.

We own a large 5 bedroom, 3 bath house next door, please email me if you would like to rent both properties for your vacation!

About Lanni Jacobson

Curt and I have owned the property next door to this beautiful home since 1991. Our family has cherished our time at Flathead lake over the years and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Lanni Jacobson purchased this house in 2017

Why Lanni Jacobson chose Flathead Lake

We purchased this property because it was next door to our other houses and we felt it would be a great vacation rental. We do also sometimes rent our larger 5 bedroom house right next door through out the summer.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed the stay. We would say with only 2 bathrooms its a tight squeeze for all if you plan on having a full house. Pull out couch is OK for small kids only!! Dock is great and the toys provided are in great working order.

Our stay was terrific! The Jacobsons bent over backward to make sure we had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful. Great views, beds & bedding, AC, and lots of water toys for our use. The kitchen was very well equipped, and everything new and good quality. We made use of the large gas grill and Trager smoker grill. The property was very quiet, and Big Arm bay seems much smoother than the big part of the lake. We will definitely return. Loved every minute!

A great Flathead vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful home. The home is extremely clean and spacious. We had 8-9 staying at all times and never felt cramped. Lanni and Curt have provided everything you need for a great stay. The linens, bedding and furniture are all great quality and extremely comfortable. We enjoyed many hours on the deck and patio, which is furnished with ample and comfortable patio furniture. The kids enjoyed all of the water toy that are available at the home, as well.

We stayed over the 4th of July. Early in the evening there was a boat parade, which the kids loved. We considered going elsewhere on Flathead to watch fireworks, but decided to take our chances and watch from the house. We were not disappointed. Lots of fireworks around the bay, watched from the comfort of our patio chair.

Lanni and Curt are seriously the nicest people ever and so very helpful!! They own the home next door and are available for questions and concerns if needed.

This home is a short drive from Polson, Whitefish, Kalispell and many area activities.

One tip I would leave for future guests..... If you intend to fish off of the dock, you need a special tribal permit. Lanni provides the office phone number for this, but we could never get anyone to answer the phone or return calls. We finally learned that the permits can also be purchased ($13) at WalMart in Polson, which turned out to be a much smoother process.

Thanks so much for a wonderful Flathead vacation!!! We would absolutely stay here again.

Amazing Flathead Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about nice and relaxing our stay was. The house is amazing with views that inspire. While it was early in the season, we'd come back again and again. Thanks, Lanni for a great stay! We'll be back soon!

A beautiful, warm home with a wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

We needed a weekend retreat to get away from the noise of everyday life and boy was this home the solution! The home is beautifully built and felt welcoming as soon as we arrived. The furniture and linens are very nice and the entire home was impeccably clean.

The home came fully stocked (minus food and drink of course) so that all you need to bring are the meals you want to cook. It truly felt like a high end hotel.

Visiting in mid spring meant we obviously couldn't take 100% advantage of the lake but it was still very relaxing and enjoyable. The kids were adventurous and dipped their toes in the water and had fun playing on the spacious waterfront. There are a ton of water toys available for when it warms up and the upstairs and downstairs decks provides for a calm and relaxing spot for those that don't want to venture into the water.

My favorite part was watching the sunset/sunrise over the mountains and the lake. I took advantage with a cup of coffee and the sounds of the forest and it was one of the best ways to start a morning.

We will definitely be returning when it warms up so we can take full advantage of the lake and the water toys.
