Property description



Sample the beauty of Northwest Montana as you retreat to this custom Bitterroot Lake-front house in Marion, Montana. The house sits on one acre and includes 150 feet of private lake frontage, as well as 700 feet of frontage on the adjacent community property - a haven for wild birds and other native animals. Bitterroot Lake is a 3,000 acre lake, located just 20 miles West of convenient Kalispell and 40 minutes from Glacier International Airport. .

Designed for efficiency, you will enjoy the coziness of this spacious, smoke-free house which is furnished to sleep up to 10 people. This charming house was designed by the owner, who has college degrees in architecture. Rooms include: three bedrooms (two with lofts), two and a half bathrooms, a family theater/game room, a living room facing the lake, a kitchen opened to the dining room, an office, and an upstairs study desk area. Additional rooms include a laundry room with front-loading washer and dryer, and an outdoor shower with hot water.

Amenities include: wood burning stove for warmth or mood-lighting; audio and visual entertainment system, including multi-room and outdoor patio speakers and a large LCD flat screen television; outdoor Weber propane barbeque; a fire pit; and rock patio with adjacent grass lawn. Enjoy the lake in your personal or rental boat that you may put in at the adjacent public boat launch near the Lions Camp. Or go fishing for Kokanee salmon and trophy-sized rainbow trout; enjoy a barbeque with family and friends; and end the evening with a campfire, games around the dining table, or a movie in surround sound. Winter fun activities include ice-fishing, snowshoeing, skate-skiing on the lake, as well as skiing at three different ski resorts (Big Mountain, Blacktail, and Turner) - all located about an hour from the house. In any season, this beautiful lake-house will warm your heart with memories for a lifetime.
