About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Soak in the hot tub or swim in the new pool or relax in front of the fireplace after a day of exploring the great outdoors of the beautiful Northern Rockies.

Our condominium is a well maintained home away from home, with a fireplace, leather couches, full kitchen, comfortable sleeping accommodations, tiled floors, HDTV, VCR/DVD, and is a non-smoking unit. Two bedrooms - one with a queen-size bed and one with a full-size bed plus bunk beds - and one full bath downstairs. Kitchen, living room with fireplace and leather couches, and one full-size bath upstairs. We are located within Ptarmigan Village, a private mountain resort community set in a 52-acre private forest.

World-class skiing at Big Mountain Ski and Summer Resort or swim, water-ski, etc. at Whitefish Lake, both only five minutes away. The area has several nice golf courses as well. The incredible sights of Glacier National Park (over 730 miles of trails) and its famed 'Going-to-the-Sun Road' is about 50 minutes away. And if that is not enough, the 'Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex' is just south of there with another 2500 square miles and over 3200 miles of trails to explore. Bring the camera, these areas simmer with wildlife!

For shopping, nightlife, and great dining head into the historic town of Whitefish (only ten minutes away) for a little Old West ambiance.

Getting there:

* Glacier International Airport (FCA - Delta, Northwest, Alaska, and Horizon) is 20 minutes away and Amtrak goes right into Whitefish.

* For driving, take Interstate 90 until you are eight miles west of Missoula. Take US Highway 93 north towards Kalispell and Whitefish, 120 miles. In Whitefish turn RIGHT (North) onto Baker Avenue, City Hall will be on your right. Head (North) over the viaduct, go straight onto Wisconsin Avenue through the lights. Three miles ahead, turn RIGHT (North) onto Big Mountain Road. Five miles up you will see the turn-off for Ptarmigan Village. Take the first road to the right and head down to 'Big Salmon' #83 and enjoy!!!

The trip that didn't happen

  • 5 of 5

After making the reservation Will was extremely helpful and pleasant to work with, giving me great suggestions about what to do and see in the area. He was even kind enough to email me photos of specific areas I was interested in seeing. We have rented through VRBO for 16 years and always had a positive experience but Will was so exceptionally nice we knew this would have been one of our best trips. He is very quick to respond to questions and does whatever he can to help. Because of the wildfire that resulted in the closure of Glacier National Park, where we planned to spend a great deal of time, we chose to cancel our reservation. Will was so understanding and pleasant that we are planning to rebook for next summer. Thank you Will!

Wonderful Condo !!

  • 5 of 5

My only regret was that we only had enough time to stay two nights. My family was very happy that we picked this location to round out our 2 week National Park tour. The unit was very clean and fully equipped with every possible thing you could ever need. It even had a canister of bear spray!! I can't say enough about how beautiful this part of the country is, and additionally how responsive and helpful the owner was. I would highly recommend this rental to anybody heading the Whitefish area.

Cozy and beautiful space, great location--can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here in August for our honeymoon, and we had an amazing time! The condo served our needs perfectly and had enough space to comfortably sleep 6. It is close to the summit of Big Mountain, downtown Whitefish, and Whitefish Lake, all of which we visited during our week there. Ptarmigan Village is also a great area for recreation with fishing, tennis, pools, and walking trails, and you can rent tennis rackets and fishing equipment all free of charge. The views here are AMAZING, and you really get the feel of living in the mountains. It's about 1-1.5 hours to Glacier National Park, which we visited the first day but decided not to go back because of all the things to do locally. Also our host (Will Eckert) was very hospitable! When we arrived, there were 2 loaves of bread, a bag of cookies, and some assorted scones/bars sitting on the table. :)

We enjoyed the accommodations but for us it was a little remote for visiting Glacier.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the fresh pastries/bread when we arrived. The beds were comfortable and it was nice to have a kitchen to make breakfast in each morning. One thing we didn't care for was that it wasn't near any restaurants/stores but that was a planning mistake on our part. It was fairly quiet but there was a dog next door that would bark if we went out on the patio. We enjoyed visiting White Fish Lake, which is nearby, and spending an afternoon there.

Owner's Response: Nadine, Thanks for the feedback. I am glad you had a good time in Whitefish. Sorry about the dog but we usually don't hear much from him. Although there is a "no pets" policy, the Homeowners Association does allow pets if you are a full time resident. The policy for my condo is no pets and that does include my personal use and all the guests that I might bring with me. I hope you will consider us for any future plans. Thanks again! Regards Will
