About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms (1 king, 3 queen, 3 single beds), 3 Baths,

Enjoy breath taking big sky sunsets from the 1,700 square foot deck just 20' from the shore of alpine pure McGregor Lake. This 5 bedroom 3 bathroom guest ranch retreat has everything to make your vacation a truly memorable experience. McGregor Lake is one of the finest lake trout fishing lakes in Montana. McGregor Lake is spring fed and its pristine alpine-lake-quality waters are what companies bottle and sell as pure spring waters.

If you like the water there is boating, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, water skiing, jet skiing, fishing, catching cray fish, sun bathing on the dock, dangling your feet in the water or just floating around on an inner tube. There is also hiking, 4 wheeling, mountain biking, off road travel and horse back riding in the nearby Kootenai National Forest. For the more sedate or just wanting to unwind, the in-deck hot tub is the place to start, a casual walk to observe and photograph the local wildlife, a good book on the deck swing or by the waterfall or just sit on a bench and ponder the mountains across the Lake. You can also use the guest ranch as a base camp for all that Northwest Montana and the Flathead Valley have to offer. This place has it all.
