Property type townhome



About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8, max 5 adults)

Enjoy breathtaking Whitefish, Montana, in this great, cedar, chalet-style townhome on Big Mountain!

Set on 52 acres of private forestland, Ptarmigan Village is truly unique in the area. It is a completely non-commercialized, quiet mountain resort…a little ‘cabin’ in the woods in Montana! This beautiful townhome is just minutes from the quaint resort town of Whitefish and Whitefish Mountain Resort.

Ptarmigan offers the largest units in the area (1200 sq. ft.) with wood-burning fireplaces and FREE firewood. This unit is in a fantastic location in the Village…a 2 minute walk to the newly upgraded tennis courts, children’s playground, and the new AMAZING indoor pool/sauna and outdoor hot tub! The Village also features a nice warm newly updated outdoor pool, a stocked fishing pond, and hiking trails.

Enjoy the peace and serenity of this unit:

• 2 bedrooms and a loft with 2 full baths;

• Sleeps 8 comfortably (max 4 adults);

• End unit townhome;

• Beautiful, super clean, non-smoking;

• Chocolate brown leather sectional and new 42” flat screen TV;

• Great quality linens (down alternative duvets, plush towels, sheets etc.);

• FREE WIFI, a printer and a portable phone with FREE local, Canada and US calling; and a

• 'Secret' toy closet upstairs in the loft.

Surrounded by lush, gorgeous pine trees, this unit features vaulted ceilings, large bright windows, and a FANTASTIC, huge, new deck with a BBQ. Enjoy the privacy from this deck!

On the main level, there is a full bath, a fully equipped kitchen and a living room. On the lower level, there are 2 bedrooms and a full bath. One bedroom has a king-size bed and other one has 2 sets of bunk beds - perfect for the kids. In the loft, there is a queen-size log bed and a portable A/C unit for those warm summer nights.

Many families return every year because this place is better than a hotel! Only 5 minutes from Whitefish Mountain Resort and 10 minutes from the town of Whitefish, this really is one of the best places to stay in the Whitefish area.

Whitefish, Montana is an amazing place for a summer or winter vacation! In the summer, you can go:

• hiking or biking on breathtaking Big Mountain;

• swimming in Whitefish Lake; and/or

• golfing at one of many world-class (and affordable!) golf courses.

Don't miss the incredible sights of Glacier National Park and its famous “Going-to-the-Sun Road' (only 45 minutes away).

In the winter, you can snow shoe and cross country ski right out the front door! Just minutes away, you can go:

• down hill or cross country skiing;

• ice skatings;

• snowmobiling;

• dog sledding; and/or

• take a wagon/sleigh ride in the snow!

Beware…once you ski at Whitefish Mountain Resort, you will be hooked! The snow is incredible and there are almost no lines for the lifts! Whitefish is similar to Banff, Alberta, before it was 'discovered' and became an international destination. There is also a great local community feel about Whitefish.

You will also love the dining, shopping, and nightlife in the historic town of Whitefish. You'll won't want to go home! Come and enjoy the beauty of Montana...truly, a vacation of a lifetime!

About Lisa Rosenberg

My name is Lisa Rosenberg and I am married with three amazing girls (17, 15 & 12 years old). I am a freelance Communications/Donor Relations consultant.

We live in Cochrane, Alberta and we chose to buy a vacation rental in Whitefish because it was a short drive from our home (approx. 5 hrs) and it was so nice and quiet compared to resorts in Alberta and British Columbia.

Lisa Rosenberg purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Lisa Rosenberg chose Whitefish Lake Area

When we purchased our place in Ptarmigan Village, we thought we would use it mostly in the summer because there is lots of great skiing back home and we are pretty busy in the winter with the girls playing ringette (similar to ice hockey). Once we skied at Whitefish Mountain Resort, though, we were hooked! The snow was incredible and there were almost no lines for the lifts!! It is so quiet compared to a lot of the big ski resorts in Canada. Now we try to come down and ski as much as we can!

We try to spend most of our summers in Whitefish. We can swim every day (at the indoor and outdoor pools in the Village, at the city beach on Whitefish Lake or at the Wave). We enjoy hiking, biking and exploring the area. The girls enjoy feeding the ducks near Baker Park. Last summer, we enjoyed tennis, golf and renting mountain bikes on Big Mountain.

What makes this townhome unique

Ptarmigan Village is so unique in the Whitefish area. It is approx. 2/3 of the way up Big Mountain on 52 wooded acres. There is no commercial it feels like you're in a cabin in the woods! There is a nice warm outdoor pool, tennis courts, a stocked fishing pond, a new children's playground, hiking trails and a fabulous new indoor pool, sauna and an outdoor hot tub.

We really like our place because it is an end unit, it is so spacious (1200 sq.ft.) and it's just a 2 minute walk from the tennis courts, children's playground, and the new indoor pool, sauna and outdoor hot tub. It's our own little 'cabin' in the woods in Montana. Of course, we also love how close we are to the ski hill!

Cozy, comfortable and very family friendly!

Our family of 4 adults and 2 children were very comfortable in this cabin. Our son loved the closet full of toys. We enjoyed the close, easy access to the pool and hot tub. The kitchen is well equipped and the living area was very cozy.

We had a lovely stay at Lisa's house. Everything you need for cooking and baking! The house was clean. My sons loved the secret loft/playroom. We wished we could have stayed longer. Definitely coming back again in June! Lisa is very responsive.

Super owners/super spot/super attention to details and comfort!

  • 5 of 5

We had a grade holiday week at this wonderful cabin. The beds were comfortable; the kitchen was well-equipped, the furniture comfortable and the bathrooms clean, accessible and perfect for our seven person stay. We especially appreciated the free phone calls to Canada, the secret toy cupboard, the nice BBQ and lovely large deck! The location was perfect; the parking great! Lisa is fabulous to deal with! Thank you for allowing us to have such a fabulous family holiday!

Excellent Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this condo this past summer and it was truly a home away from home! It was super clean, all the amenities a family would need. Excellent location and we will be back next summer!

Great Whitefish Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Lisa - we arrived today and your place is great! So very quiet and an excellent location. We went to Main Street, did a great hike up at the Whitefish ski area, had a hot tub at your beautiful pool facility and enjoyed a beverage and dinner on the deck!

Thank you also for the great bakery treats! That was very kind.

Thanks again.

Wonderful vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time staying at this fun "cabin". It is so close to whitefish, yet out in nature. We enjoyed going to Glacier National Park, horseback riding and biking in the area.

Fabulous (and affordable!) golfing and fishing. Great shopping in Whitefish and Kalispell! World-class skiing and no waiting in lines! Even though Whitefish is well known for winter activities, the summer is even more amazing! Fall is my favourite time of year in Whitefish.
