This enchanting Montana lodge was custom built in 2004. It has a true Montana feel and is located in a private wooded setting, surrounded by larch, pine and birch trees. There are many areas where the native plants have been allowed to thrive. It is surrounded by a flower garden that guarantees flowers, no matter what time of the summer you visit. The grounds are landscaped with a large lawn and a large crystal blue, rock lined pond complete with its flowing fountain. There is a deck that overlooks the pond for the perfect place to enjoy the long Montana summer evenings as you sit at the picnic table and grill on the Weber propane grill.

About LuAnn

When I came to this area on Vacation I couldn't find anything this area didn't offer. Everyday here is a great adventure and I enjoy sharing the beauty of this place with our guests. There is never a lack of something to do. On a perfect summer day you can golf, whitewater raft and hike long before it gets dark. You can have as much solitude as you wish or as much adventure as you can possibly handle.

LuAnn purchased this house in 2007

Why LuAnn chose Whitefish

After traveling through all the National Parks in the US, I was captivated by the beauty of Glacier National Park. The pristine rivers, blue lakes and endless outdoor recreation was something I had looked for in a town. Formally a Lake Tahoe resident, my wish list included finding a place like Lake Tahoe was 20 years ago. I wanted a ski town and lake town with Year round outdoor activities. When I came here and saw Glacier National Park.It was more then I had ever dreamed of finding in one place. I moved here 2 years later.

What makes this house unique

I chose this location to put you right in the middle of it all. You are only a few minutes from the trains and airport. A few minutes to the shopping, two downtown areas, Big Mountain ski resort and Glacier National Park. Although Whitefish lake is beautiful there are many smaller lakes and rivers to enjoy. The house itself lets you have privacy, open family areas but is a short ride to all the things I just mentioned.

Great Montana Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Did a weekend trip with the kids and grandparents over Logan's Pass (Going to the Sun Road). Cabin was great and everyone enjoyed their stay. Great landscaping, lawn area and fire pit. We've rented a lot of VRBO places, and found the owners to be nice to deal with, and completely unobtrusive. Made for a wonderful weekend.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 9. We really enjoyed the yard and the firepit. The house is conveniently located to grocery stores, and downtown Whitefish. We drove into Glacier National Park several times throughout the week as well. I will definitely recommend this home to others, and will hopefully be back one day soon!

The property was very clean and well kept.

  • 5 of 5

It was an amazing experience. The cabin was absolutely beautiful inside and out. We had a group of 14 people and the cabin was just the perfect size. The owners are sweet and accommodating to our needs.

Well kept home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a lovely experience in Whitefish and this home helped us enjoy being together. We had plenty of space, the home was very clean and had everything we needed—tons of towels, bedding, etc. Well appointed for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you. We never get tired of hearing the wonderful compliments our amazing guests share with us. We know that family time is so precious in this modern world. We try to make it as easy as possible for large groups and families to get together and make it as hasel free as possible. When we are stocking the house we want you to have everything you need to immediately be able to start your vacation. We don't want your vacation to consist of household chores,you are on vacation and you should feel like someone values that time as much as you do. A house should feel inviting and comfortable, like you are visiting a good friend. The small touches like coolers, ice packs, band-aids, wood for the fire pit, propane for the grill and sewing kits is our way of saying we value you and want you to know we care. It is rewarded over and over again by wonderful reviews which are so appreciated. Please come back soon and if you know anyone traveling here please share us with them. Thanks again.

Dream Vacation Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is AWESOME! We vacationed there with our 3 grown children, their spouses and all 7 grandchildren and we could not have been more pleased. It is apparent that Steve and LuAnn cherish this property and are serious about making sure their guests every need is met.

We have stayed in many HomeAway, Air B&B type place both domestically and internationally and have never been more pleased with a property.

Aside from being breathtakingly beautiful which it is, roomy and spacious which it is, it also is the most well appointed/equipped home we have stayed in. They literally have thought of everything you might need or want.

Our kids are determined to make this our “go to” place. It was perfect in every way!
