About the Property

Everything's Better at The Lake! ~ 3+ bdrms/ 3 baths / Hot Tub/ Dock /Beach

Book EARLY for Summer 2017 !!
Jane's Place will be closed for renovations January thru late March 2017...but we are still taking reservations for Spring 2017 onward...
END OF THE SUMMER 6x6 SPECIAL: September 29th to September 4th/ 6 nights/6 people/$2200.00 including tax!! Book now!
Jane's Place is located on a gently sloping acre, on the East shore of Flathead Lake in Northwestern Montana. The home overlooks Flathead Lake and the famous Flathead Cherry orchards. We are about 11 miles south of Bigfork.
Our property extends to the's a short walk down through the orchards, about a 3 to 5 minuet walk, it's a little longer of a walk on the way up!
Your beach has a 50' wooden dock and rustic concrete boat ramp, open for your use. 20' boat max. Guests with disabilities are welcome to drive right onto the beach. The beach is of the small rocky type. Beach chairs, loungers, tables and umbrellas are available for your use. Campfires are allowed at some times of the year, please inquire.
Our driveway is shared with our neighbors to the north.
Jane's Place is comfortable and set up with the basics, and then some. The kitchen is simple and clean. It comes fully equipped with cookware, dishes, glassware, stemware, plenty of silverware, cooking utensils and more, just ask!! Also provided are basic spices, fresh coffee beans, a grinder & tea. The stove is electric, the fridge is a new large stainless GE model & the dishwasher is of the "old school" roll out style with a large butcher block top.
Sleeping Arrangements: There are 3 bedrooms.
On the main floor, there are two bedrooms, they are on the small side but they are comfortable, fresh and clean. The first, the Lake View room, has a new Queen bed with soft cotton sheets and pillows. The second room upstairs, The Garden room, also has a new Queen bed. This bedroom contains one of the 3 full bathrooms in the home. Downstairs, you will find the master bedroom, with the most wonderful king size bed on the planet, as well as another of the three full bathrooms in the home. The master bedroom opens onto the lower deck, (1 of 3 decks!) and hot tub. The living room has one queen pull out sleeper sofa and a new Queen bed lounge area that is made into a bed. There is also another 'regular' sofa (leather) that a person could sleep on. There is a single trundle bed, sleeps 2, downstairs off the master and laundry rooms. This it is not 'officially' a separate bedroom. It has draperies dividing it off and is a great place for kids. It also stays nice and cool in the Summer months. We also have a single bed, outside, on the lower deck for outdoor sleeping during the warmer evenings.

Bathroom Arrangements: There are 3 full bathrooms. The 'master bath' is downstairs with a great walk in tiled shower and plenty of room. Bathroom #2 is in the Garden View room upstairs on the main floor. It has a shower in the room, really, in the room. This bath also has a little separate room with W.C. and sink. Bathroom #3 is a full bath with shower on the main floor, off the kitchen area. The two bathrooms upstairs are sometimes considered on the small side, but they are clean, fresh and serve their purpose.
The front deck off the kitchen has a large charcoal BBQ/smoker, charcoal & lighter fluid are provided. All bedding and towels are provided.
** PLEASE bring your own beach towels, house towels are not allowed on the beach.

PETS: Well behaved, potty trained adult NON-SHEDDING dogs are welcome at Jane's Place. No puppies. Pets MUST be pre-approved. 2 dog max.

Check in is 4 p.m. or later. Check out is 11 a.m. Early check in or later check out can sometimes be arranged, please check with us.

Flathead Lake is a FANTASTIC vacation destination, Jane's Place would love to share it with you!!
If you are looking for a place to 'PAR-TAY', this is not the rental for you. Please look elsewhere. We do not accept rentals from guests under the age of 26. Most people are here to enjoy family, the lake, the beauty this area affords and the ability to 'chill'. Loud, drunken parties and abusive language are not appreciated. We are sorry to report that we have stopped renting to bridal or bachelor parties unless you are "a friend of Bill's".
During your stay I will be, at times, out and about to maintain the gardens and hot tub as needed. We have a large property which requires a lot of maintenance, so we hope you will understand this, but I do stay out of your hair and generally am not there. I do not live on the property.
Please remember we are located amongst the active cherry orchards of Flathead Lake. During the Summer months, June, July and August, the harvest is on and farming activities around the home are in full swing, farm machinery, pickers etc.
We encourage all guests to purchase travel insurance. Jane's Place Montana reserves the right to cancel any reservation for any reason with a full refund at any time.
Jane's Place is listed through the Polson Montana Chamber of Commerce. Please contact 'Jane' for special rates dependent on your length of stay.
Thank you for considering Jane's Place Montana on Flathead Lake for your vacation. I hope to hear from you soon!
