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.

Ski Trip to the mountains
The house was perfect for our needs. It was beautiful and spacious. The only thing I would add to the house is a griddle. It was a little difficult to cook for 13 people so we could all eat together. However, it is not a deal breaker. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a place for a big family or group. We had an amazing time and would definitely do it again. Thank you for helping us by having such an amazing property.

Lovely cabin in Whitefish
Comfortable, clean, quiet with turkey and deer roaming through the yard nightly. Effortless booking, entry and departure. Rental was odorless- which incredibly appreciated since my husband has allergies. Cabin had the softest blankets.
Close to Glacier National Park, Bob Marshall wilderness, Big mountain ski resort, Majestic Arena and rodeos. We are locate close to Big Mountain Golf course, Whitefish Golf Course, Meadow Lake Golf Course, and Buffalo Hills Golf Course.
