SPRING is here! Call or email us for special rates!

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 runs from Highway 35 to the lake...it's a short walk down through the orchards, about a 3 to 5-minute 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 the small rocky type. Beach chairs, loungers, tables and umbrellas are available for your use. Campfires at the beach are allowed most times of the year, please inquire. No RVs.

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 the "old school" roll out style with a large butcher block top.

Sleeping Arrangements: There are 3 plus bedrooms.

On the main floor, there are two bedrooms, they are on the small side but they are comfortable, fresh and clean. #1. The Lake View room has a new Serta queen bed with soft comfy sheets and pillows.#2. The Garden View room also has a new Queen bed. This bedroom contains one of the 3 full bathrooms in the home. Both of these queen rooms are upstairs. Downstairs, you will find #3. 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 opens onto the lower deck, (1 of 3 decks!) and hot tub.

The living room has one queen pull out (#4 bed) sleeper sofa and 1 new Queen bed lounge area that is made into a bed( bed#5). There is also another 'regular' sofa (leather) that a person could sleep on. We also have a trundle bed, sleeps 2,(beds 6 & 7) 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 during the Summer months. We also have a single bed, (bed #8) 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. The Garden View has a shower IN the room. This bath also has a little separate room with W.C. and sink. Bathroom #3 is a full bath with shower & tub on the main floor, off the kitchen area. The two bathrooms upstairs are 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 adult NON-SHEDDING dogs are welcome at Jane's Place. No puppies. Pets MUST be pre-approved. 2 dog max. $10 per dog per night. No barkers, no markers or sofa dwellers. Kepp your animals off our furniture and out of our beds, no exceptions.

We require a refundable deposit "fee". This is your security/damage deposit. It will be returned within 7 days of checking out if there is no damage. Please see your rental agreement for specifics, it is clearly spelled out

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. 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.

Jane's Place is listed through the Polson Montana Chamber of Commerce. Please email me with an "inquiry" rather than a "request to book" for special rates. Or give me a call at four oh six five fore six oh for oh fore.

Thank you for considering Jane's Place Montana on Flathead Lake for your vacation. I hope to hear from you soon!

Why Teresa Frankfurth chose Bigfork

I am blessed to live in one of the most beautiful spots on the planet, it's an honor to share my home and the beauty this area has to offer with my guests. Hosting guests is a pleasure I very much enjoy. Jane's Place on Flathead Lake does not consider itself 'fancy'. What we are is family run, clean, homey and very comfortable. ....at least that's what they tell me! We want you to feel at home and have most of the conveniences of home while enjoying the beauty of the Montana countryside and Flathead Lake.

What makes this House unique

Beautiful views from all 3 decks, Cozy beds, Hot Tub, short walk, about 4 mins. down to Flathead Lake with your own beach, private dock and boat ramp. A little over an acre to play on, comfy, not stuffy.

The house is very clean and has everything you need during your stay. All the little extra things she provides her guest is so thoughtful. We hope to visit again some day. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Theresa baked a pumpkin nut bread and left it out for us.. upon arrival it smelled like fall, and all the desiguois trees leaves were turning while we were there. The views from the hot tub were out of this world. I recommend staying here anytime, not just summer. Thank you so much Theresa!!

                                                                      THANK YOU for the glowing review, yes, anytime is a fantastic time to stay at Jane's Place on Flathead Lake, but I need to correct one "fact", the house itself is not set directly "RIGHT next to the lake", it's set back on the property, a short walk, about 3 minuets down through the orchards.


                                                                      Aimee A.

                                                                      Jane's Place is fantastic! The view of Flathead Lake from the decks are breathtaking. An array of flowers were blooming in the front flower beds and add a heavenly scent to enjoy while lounging on the porch. Just a short walk takes you to a stately dock that overlooks the lake and surrounding mountains. After a day on the lake it was immensely relaxing to soak in the hot tub, all while gazing at the magnificent views. The pups also enjoyed themselves, lounging in the sun and frolicking in the lake. Our introduction to the Flathead Valley could not have been better. The accommodations were tidy and very clean. Teresa was extremely friendly and a wonderful host. Our family will be back!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

I'm extremely happy that after close to an entire month in our home you still felt like it is a place you'd come back to. I also appreciate the care you took of the house, especially considering the fact that 2 huge Great Danes were in residence as well. Good luck to you and Arrants Outdoors as you launch into your new adventures in Montana.
