About LuAnn

Dr. Steven Schram , skier, mountain climber, rafter, hiker,x-country skier, snowshoer, father, husband......one lucky guy!

LuAnn purchased this house in 2009

Why LuAnn chose Whitefish Lake Area

I have traveled across the country for years. looking a place that has it all .Whitefish, Montana isn't the only place where you can ski, golf , hike and fish but it is one of the only ones I know that you can do it all in the same day. It is the endless vacation. The summer days are so long that I often joke that it is hard to go to bed when you have to wear sun glasses. I dreamed of one day moving back to Lake Tahoe but when I found Whitefish it was still unspolied like I remember Lake Tahoe being years ago. The deal breaker for me was Glacier National Park. The last completely intact ecosystem. I believe that being connected to nature is essential to being healthy and happy. Be careful when you come here you just might not leave..I didn't.

What makes this house unique

When you come to Montana you want to wake up feeling like you are in Montana. If Iyou want to wake up in a hotel room and eat at McDonalds you can do that any where. I wanted you to wake up and look out upon the fir trees and pines from your real log lodge. If you look you can see Deer, moose and horses. The wild turkeys sometimes will wake you up with their morning stroll. At night, the howls of coyotes in the distance will sing you to sleep. You are close to everything. One of my goals was that you spend as little time in a car as possible. Most of the area attractions are 10-15 minutes at the most ,in your car. Glacier park is 30 minutes. To me it is the perfect place. Food shopping and getting all that may be necessary is only minutes away. I even have a chef that will prepare meals and leave them in the fridge so that all you have to do is play and relax. You can stroll the grounds in the evening and sit out by the firepit making smores feeling like you are in a commercial for the perfect vacation. You don't have to miss a single comfort of home. There is WiFi through out and plenty of space for your furry child (dog) to enjoy the vacation as much as you do.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

We had two families (4 adults, 7 children (aged 2-14 yo). Perfect house for everyone. Plenty of room inside, plenty of beds, plenty of amazing outdoor space. The best stocked kitchen on any VRBO that I've ever stayed in. Perfect location b/n Whitefish, Kalispell, and Glacier. We would all stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you! We never get tired of hearing that we have provided a great place to stay for a perfect Family vacation. There is so much to do here between Glacier Park, Whitefish Lake, Whitefish Mountain and a hundred other activities but we felt that having a lot of outdoor spaces was important in a vacation home. We made sure there was a nice grass lawn area for games, a fire pit area for S'mores and campfires, a BBQ area, a hot tub area, a large front porch, as well as smaller decks off the dining area and master bedroom. We think it adds fun and enjoyment days you feel like just unwinding and relaxing. Thank you for noticing and enjoying. We hope to see your wonderful group again.

We loved Walking Bear Lodge!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is lovely and very comfortable. The setting is peaceful and quiet and is within a short drive to Whitefish and Glacier National Park. We had 8 adults and there was plenty of room for all of us. There were no negatives. There are steps in the home, so just be aware of that if anyone in your party has problems with stairs, although there are bedrooms and a kitchen on the lower level that does not require stairs. Great kitchen upstairs with room for all of us to gather. Everything we needed or wanted was there. The porches are awesome as well. We would absolutely return to this great home!!

Beautiful home but.....stay could have been better.

  • 3 of 5

Very nice and beautiful home!! This could have been an excellent stay for us if there were bug/insect control or cleaning up the insects prior to our arrival. I don't know what kind of insect they were to be exact but it looked like cockroaches in every room. Spent time cleaning and vacuuming the insects on our first night of arrival because the kids and adults all felt uncomfortable. Could have easily been a 5 star if we all felt cozy and comfortable, otherwise it's a gorgeous place.

Owner's Response: Hop T I am so sorry to hear about your stay. Yes when we checked after your stay there were indeed bugs. Our Pest Control Company identified them as Brown marmorated stink bugs. Thankfully they are non-biting, and NOT cockroaches. For some reason they are exploding in this area right now and they have no natural enemies. This stinkbug apparently loves getting inside and in the fall. I am sorry they choose to join you for your stay. I apologize and of course we are upset that our guests were uncomfortable because of it. Please know we will take every possible action to remedy it immediately.

You can't go wrong by arranging a stay at Walking Bear Lodge! FIVE STARS

  • 5 of 5

Walking Bear Lodge was perfect for our family group of 18. We took turns preparing great meals in the well-equipped kitchens; gathering at a huge dining table. We slept soundly in the five bedrooms with ample bathrooms. In the daytime everyone scattered. Swimming in the lake, horseback riding, traveling through nearby Glacier National Park—incredibly beautiful. A large contingent hiked up to five individual fire towers. We enjoyed the hot tub, playing on the nice lawn, making s"mores in the fire-pit. The lodge is beautiful and perfectly designed for a large group. Our family has taken vacations in and out of the country, but we agreed this was one was the best!

A wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end our stay at the Walking Bear Lodge was awesome. Enough room to accommodate a large group. Clean and beautiful. The backyard area was a fun place for the kids to play football and tag. The hot tub was awesome. Kitchen (actually 2, one in the basement) was well stocked. Two sets of washers and dryers made keeping close clean a breeze. LuAnn was easy to communicate with prior to our arrival and very accommodating . The place is private but she was only a personal message away from meeting our needs. I would stay here again if we have the opportunity to return to this area. The firepit was fun for smores. Overall we just had a wonderful experience here for our stay.
