This spacious, quiet and affordable townhouse gives you easy access to everything else that makes Whitefish and northwestern Montana so special.
City zoning prohibits vacation rentals in most neighborhoods in Whitefish, so this beautiful townhouse is one of the few vacation rentals within the city limits; most are miles from downtown and its famous restaurants and shopping.
in a peaceful neighborhood away from noisy railroad tracks and arterial streets, you can walk to our historic downtown (0.8 mile) or to City Beach on famous Whitefish Lake (0.9 mile) or take short drives (2 miles) to the golf course. In addition, it's only 25 miles to Glacier Park and even less to Flathead Lake and the airport.
With a view of Big Mountain, the townhouse (1,683 sq. ft.), we set up our townhouse with family vacations in mind with one master bedroom (queen) downstairs and two bedrooms (queen and two twins) upstairs. The attached two-car garage (rare for vacation rentals) prevents parking hassles--and no frost scrapping or snow shoveling on winter mornings.
In winter, it's a short drive (6 miles) to Whitefish Mountain Resort and the world-famous skiing on Big Mountain. Instead staying up on the mountain or driving the often icy Big Mountain Road and fighting for a parking spot when you stay in our townhouse and take the free Snow bus which leaves from the Stumptown Ice Den (two blocks from our back door) up to the resort. Or if you like traditional Nordic or skate skiing, you can enjoy the beautifully groomed trails right in Whitefish at the golf course or on the Whitefish Mountain ski trails.
We also set up our vacation home for travelers who have a little business to do along the way or business people on an extended trip who prefer a pleasant alternative to hotel rooms. The loft has a fully equipped computer station with WiFi along with a 40-inch, flat-screen with satellite TV and DVD player. Montana has cell phone dead zones, but not in this townhouse. With the skyrocketing hotel rates in the Whitefish area, a family, two or three couples, or business travelers can stay here in comfort, quietly, for half the price--or less.
Also, the owners have lived in the area for fifty years and know it well, so if you have any questions, we’ll do the best we can to answer them for you.
PERSONAL PET PEEVE: We travel a lot, and frequently stay in vacation rentals. One thing that drives us crazy is paying $200+ per night and immediately having to go out and buy paper towels, toilet paper, dishwater soap, detergent, garbage bags, Kleenex. hand soap and other essentials. When we check in and see one roll of TP, we only think cheap, cheap, cheap. So, we do the opposite with my vacation rental. We try to have good supplies of all of the above for you.
ONLINE BOOKING. You can conveniently book online, but we’re active travelers, sometimes traveling to places with no cell or online service, so in some cases, we might not be able to respond or accept your online booking within the required 24-hour period, even though we’d welcome it. If your booking is declined because of non-response by us, please give us a few more days to get online and accept your booking. We’ll call or email immediately and accept your booking if we see it has been declined. Or you can simply re-book a few days later and we will accept it asap.
TERMS: Many vacation rentals require full payment upfront, but we find that unreasonable. Our terms are 25 percent upon signing with the remainder (including security deposit, cleaning fee and taxes) due 30 days in advance of arrival, all refundable with the exception of a $100 cancellation fee.
ADDITIONAL CHARGES: A refundable security deposit of $300, non-refundable cleaning deposit of $100, and taxes (7 percent Montana accommodations tax and 3 percent local resort tax).
