Carriage House Apartment

Come to Montana to experience the Romance of the West. Our western style Carriage House Apartment offers an intimate, romantic hide-away in the charming Western town of Whitefish, MT. Set in the rugged Whitefish Mountain Range this one bedroom apartment has been been designed with your comfort and enjoyment in mind using high quality materials.

Relax on the leather sofa or recliner in the glow from the stone fireplace. Watch the game on the flat panel TV over the log mantle. Enjoy the view of Big Mountain from the dining area.

After a day of play in Whitefish luxuriate in the spa tub or shower in the walk-in slate tiled shower. Either way you will appreciate the beautiful bathroom and the radiant heat will keep your toes toasty. For your convenience there is a full sized washer and dryer in the bathroom closet.

At night slip into a deep sleep in the pillow-top queen sized bed with high quality bedding. Step out on the deck for some star gazing to check out Montana’s Big Sky.

Local woods, quarried stone and granite are used throughout this 700 square foot home. The living room has a stone fireplace with a log mantle and a great view of Big Mountain. There is a fully equipped kitchen with granite counters.

And what a location! Close to town; walking distance to great restaurants; a quick drive up the mountain for skiing; and in a quiet neighborhood that borders a nature preserve. So keep your eyes open and your binoculars handy for wildlife viewing.

A heated storage room for skis and equipment is on the premises.

You will love staying here and hate to leave!

Some detailed info:

The flooring is all responsibly harvested local fir and larch from the great folks at RBM Lumber. The fireplace stone is from McGreggor Lake, MT. The mantle was made locally by John Emerson whose family has been making log furniture for decades. Much of the furniture is from Old Hickory Furniture, not local but they have been making the finest lodge furniture for over 100 years.

About Karen Hinman

Karen and Richard Hinman split their time between homes in CT where they lived since 1982 and Whitefish, MT since 2004. They moved to Whitefish full time in 2012. They are shown here in Glacier National Park on the Dawson/Pitamakin Trail.

Karen Hinman purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Karen Hinman chose Whitefish Lake Area

This area of Montana is a little bit of paradise, something to be experienced not just visited. There is so much to do and see. Every year we find new things to enjoy here in Big Sky country.

What makes this apartment unique

After spending six summers in Whitefish, we found this property and can't believe how lucky we are to be able to live here. We added this apartment in 2010 and put an enormous amount of thought into making it exceptional. It was designed with great attention to detail and respect for craftsmanship; comfort, style and high quality are the standard. We know our guests will appreciate the care and effort that have gone into this charming and intimate hide-away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love your luxury apartment. The pictures online were nice, but they don't really give the whole picture of how cozy and clean and gorgeous this place is.

This was the perfect place for our three night stay. We enjoyed a day at Whitefish Mountain Resort and a day snowshoeing in Glacier National Park.

We can't imagine having any other "base camp" while in the area and will highly recommend it.

Mt/meadow view apt

  • 4 of 5

Clean, quiet, comfortable upstairs apt for two with views of meadow, mts. Nature trail just down the street; deer, turkey, grouse in yard. Close to shopping, good restaurants in quaint historic downtown Whitefish and trails at Whitefish Lake/Mountain. Don't miss the view of Flathead Lake from the tram at Whitefish Mt. There is a window a/c in the bedroom and the area cools off in the evening, but the apt. can get warm during 90 degree days. Washer/dryer a plus after hiking in hot weather.

Perfect for Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here three nights and absolutely loved it. We've stayed in dozens of VRBOs and this was in the top two or three. The layout was great with a bedroom, large bathroom, balcony overlooking the woods and field, and a large kitchen with everything you need. The apartment was clean and comfortable and in a good location only a minute or two from town.

When we drove up we were greeted by three deer in the driveway. We also saw two turkeys, several other deer and the resident pheasant during our stay. We liked it so much we changed our plans and spent one day just relaxing in the apartment.

It was a little warm with temperatures in the upper 80's but there is a small window A/C unit that kept the bedroom cool. Overall a great place to stay. We highly recommend it.

Absolutely loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect! Super clean, well stocked, and close to stores and restaurants. My husband and I stayed here six nights while visiting GNP and Whitefish. Karen was super nice, and gave us lots of info on the area, yet gave us our privacy too. If you need a place to stay in the Glacier area, book this place. You won't regret it!

This place is better than any equally priced hotel, extremely clean, private and modern

  • 5 of 5

I came to Lake McDonald for a wedding and just needed somewhere to hang out. Booked this place last minute in stead a hotel, so much nicer. Quiet neighborhood, very private, full kitchen with everything you have at home, oversized bathroom, there was nothing that had not been thought of with regard of amenities and comfort. If your going to the Glacier National Park area, this is the place to stay. Thank you to the owners, Scott R. Hillsboro, OR
