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 Hyway 35 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 at the beach are allowed most times of the year, please inquire. No RV's.

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. #1. The Lake View room, has a new Serta queen bed with soft cotton 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 in 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.

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".

We do accept any RV's over 25 feet, that's even pushing it, we very limited turn around space.

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 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!

Why Teresa Frankfurth chose Flathead Lake

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. 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 and your own beach with a dock, about an acre to play on, comfortable, not stuffy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great, quiet place with a stunning view

  • 4 of 5

We were surprised by the size of the place. It might not look like much (at least in the winter) when you arrive but you'll soon be quite pleasently surprised! There were so many thoughtful touches from the sheepskin rug to the fleece sheets and all of the personal care products you could want. We will definitely back. It was a perfect weekend! Thank you, Theresa.

Awesome break from reality!!

  • 5 of 5

I'm a local to the area, but living in an apartment with growing grandgirls has become TOO much for the space I have. Spending Thanksgiving at Jane's Place was the perfect solution to overcrowding and small space! My family spent most of the day in the living room/kitchen area. My adult kids could not remember a time when we had all been able to sit at a table and eat "family" style. The views were wonderful, the beach area is inviting and usable, the home....comfortable. Cozy. Interesting. Intriguing. Surprising. Family friendly with a giant bed and tons of pillows in the living room! Kitchen and pantry are well stocked; all pots and pans are new-ish and of good quality. Abundant towels, toiletries, and the laundry facilities are very handy. Hot tub was hot, clean and easily accessible. The bed in the master suite is to die for. The sheets, the so cozy. Early rising is not easy at Jane's Place! Teresa left us with Lindt chocolates, cookies, breakfast bars and a bottle of champagne! I would definitely recommend staying here for a weekend, or a month!!

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

This place is very welcoming and cozy. The views of the lake from the two patios are amazing. The beach is super close and only about a couple of minutes of easy walking from the house. It is set up with a nice dock and plenty of chairs and a bbq.

The house itself was very clean and outfitted with all the necessities. The host was helpful and made us feel welcome.
