About the property

Unique log home with Lake Access and Outstanding Views

Bootjack Lake Lodge is a rare and unique property, a year-round paradise and the consummate vacation destination for seclusion and fun in Big Sky Country. This private 66 acre estate on a wooded bluff offers a spectacular 55-mile view of pristine, 35 acre Trophy Trout fishing Bootjack Lake as well as the mountain ranges beyond. Located just 11 miles or 20 minutes from downtown Whitefish and 50 minutes from Glacier National Park.

The 4500+ sq. ft. custom log, 4 bedroom (privacy for 8 people, sleeps up to 10), 3.5 bath lodge is bordered by thousands of Flathead National Forest acres, so hiking opportunities are limitless. The 4200 feet of private lake frontage provide trophy trout fishing, picnic and swimming opportunities. The main floor of the lodge consists of a formal dining room, great room with massive rock fireplace, a large kitchen with modern appliances, a half bath, and family room with entertainment center (big screen satellite television, VCR/DVD, stereo)and board games for all ages. Upstairs is the spacious master king bedroom with a view for miles and a bath with separate shower and whirlpool tub. Downstairs is another television area complete with fireplace, and there are three bedrooms, one of which is ensuite with bathroom including claw foot tub; the other two bedrooms share a bathroom with a wonderful steam shower. The lodge is furnished with big, comfortable furniture and is air-conditioned in summer.

Drive 20 minutes and you’ll find a 36-hole golf course with great views and the town of Whitefish is just beyond. A ski resort at Big Mountain is a lovely 18 mile drive from the lodge, with magnificent Glacier National Park a short 35-mile day trip. After an adventurous day, enjoy watching the sun rise and set from the Hot Tub on the deck overlooking the lake and mountains. The swing at the top of the bluff is also a great place to sit, read and enjoy the view, or just listen to the loons in the evening. You will find what you are seeking at Bootjack Lake Lodge, whether it is fishing for those 22' Trophy Trout, other outdoor excitement or simple, peaceful serenity. Owner's canoe is available to renters. We provide you with maps of recommended hikes and can recommend where to obtain your fishing license. *Bootjack Lake is a non-motorized lake, paddle boards, kayaks, canoes welcome*

Relaxing, quiet, beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with friends and family to celebrate my husband's 40th. We had plenty of room in the home and the grounds were beautiful. There were trails to hike and venture out on and we completely enjoyed the private lake and canoe that was provided. The view from the back deck was breathtaking as well as the enjoyment of a dip in the hottub. Highly recommend!

This beautiful home in a picturesque location fit the needs of our family reunion/ vacation perfectl

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home in a picturesque location fit the needs of our family reunion/ vacation perfectly. We spent days at Glacier and in Whitefish and evening grilling and cooking in, playing games, putting together puzzles, soaking in the hot tub and reuniting.

The house was outfitted with every possible thing we needed, was spacious and comfortable.

The private beach, dock and canoe were an added bonus. It was hot while we visited and it was lovely and refreshing.

The only downside, though not in the owner’s control were the yellow jackets. They made it nearly impossible to enjoy the lovely decks and grilling was challenging. We emptied and rebaited he traps several times but more traps are necessary and would make outside time safer and more pleasant.

We were just a tiny bit disappointed not to spot a bear, but seriously, we were very cautious and though we brought our own, appreciated the bear spray that was provided.

I would recommend this home to large groups visiting this beautiful part of Montana.

Nice Woods home

  • 5 of 5

Great place. nice inside and out. AC wasn't balanced across the floors but otherwise a nice house, although you should be prepared to be seriously isolated. Its a long way to the store. I would like to have seen a firepit. Nice deck.

Awesome Mountain get away ! Great Cabin !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our 2 kids up to this mountain retreat on the outskirts of Whitefish, Montana and also very near Kalispell (almost equal distance to both) for our summer vacation. Easy access to both towns (in summer) if you need to get in.

The Cabin sits perched above the small BootJack lake. You get the feeling of having a private lake as there are only 6-7 homes around the lake. They have a canoe which was fun to take it. There is a little bit of a walk to get to it (FYI, just in case you have someone with a condition/elderly) but not bad. Cabin had a great home-like feel to it, while still having all the amenities/quality you want in a nice place (wifi, Satellite tv, jacuzzi on deck, good water pressure, nice master suite, etc). I loved that it is "off the beaten path" down a long unpaved mountain road, so you have total privacy and solitude.

Saw a deer one morning outside the cabin, and a bald eagle fly and and perch in a tree alongside the lake.

30 minutes to Glacier National Park. Did the whitewater rafting in the park which was awesome, great hikes there, Going to Sun Road up to the Continental Divide is the most breathtaking road in the U.S. (also not for those with fear of heights, with curvy road, no shoulder and deep drop off on one side, but spectacular views/scenery).

Definitely recommend, and will be going back Lord willing !
