About the Property

Lake Front House, sleeps 4-6.

This lake shore home is designed for people that enjoy making memories. The house is two story, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sleeping loft. There are two convertible sofa beds which are comfortable for kids and the young at heart in the upstairs loft. The living room, dining room, and kitchen have an open layout where families and friends can be together. The kitchen has a breakfast bar and is stocked full of all things you might need to create a great meal. The cozy gas fireplace warms up the cool mornings and offers a place to sit and make plans for your day.

The house has two covered decks with lights and plenty of comfortable furniture for dining, relaxing, wildlife viewing, picture taking, or visiting with friends and family. The ambiance is comfortable and the memories you make will last for generations. Enjoy the beautiful yard. You are surrounded by beauty of the trees native to the Pacific Northwest, including aspens, birch's, cottonwoods, evergreens, flowering vines, ferns, and wild rose bushes. The grass is well landscaped and the property is set up for family fun and relaxation. Enjoy horseshoes, croquet, barbecuing, picnics, bird watching, and any other outdoor activities you choose. The private dock is just a stone throw from the house. We have a canoe, rowboat, kayaks (3) and paddle boards (2) to share with our guests for fun on the lake. Bring your own watercraft or jet ski's if you choose. You can grab a beach towel and just lay on the dock. Soak up the sun, enjoy some music or even float around on your tubes or rafts.
If you like a sandy beach and a hotdog, head for City Beach located right down the lake. We are so close you can boat, kayak, walk, drive or bike. This beach offers rental tubes, swim buoys, a large floating dock for cannonballs/jumping/diving, lifeguards and a great snack shop.

If you are looking for a nice lunch with a great view or have friends looking for accommodations close by the Whitefish Lodge is less then a mile away. Its a quick boat ride and an easy place to fill up on gas and ice to keep your cooler full.

We are surrounded by beautiful Golf courses that are consistently rated in the top 5 by Golf Digest. The Summer temperatures allow you to play all day long with Day light extending up to 16 hours during the peak of summer.
The exciting City of Whitefish has an eclectic blend of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, ice cream and candy shops for an afternoon stroll through downtown. If you are looking for Night life we have some great places for dinner or a night in a bar.. You will feel a contagious energy here.
SUMMER DOESN'T LAST FOREVER, BUT WHILE YOU ARE HERE, YOU WILL WISH IT COULD.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I always knew that someday I would live on Whitefish Lake. My grand parents used to run a cabin resort named 'Win-na-kee Cottages' during the 1950's, 60's and 70's. Most of the grand kids came every summer to spend weeks making beds, renting boats, cleaning cabins, mowing lawns and just enjoying being around the lake. I dreamed of some day having my own home on the Lake and now I do.My home was built in 2006. I love to share it with families so they can also create the same kind of memories that last for generations. I love it here ! All seasons are wonderful. I will do everything I can to make your stay the best vacation you ever had.

Why the Owner Chose Whitefish, MT, USA:
The memories from my childhood lured me here my entire life. When you arrive in Whitefish you are engaged with energy from the beautiful surroundings and all of the water that surrounds you. The Whitefish River is just across the bay and is so fun to canoe or tube down. The ducks and geese and even an occasional river otter, are all along the banks. Use your imagination and explore all the rivers, streams, creeks, and especially all the lakes in the area. The eclectic town of Whitefish appears small but is large in what it has to offer. The privacy of the property lends itself to relaxing, picture taking and sharing experiences with your family in a spectacular setting.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This cottage is on the East end of the Lake. It is withing walking distance to town and City Beach. It has a private driveway. The cottage is almost sitting on the lake shore.It is very private and the wildlife is everywhere. The furnishings and the things this house has to offer will help make your experience almost perfect. The large covered decks that surround the house, give you many ways to spend your vacation time. There are two picnic tables on the lawn. Move them around between the sun and shade. They are so fun to have for family use. Enjoy a game of horseshoes or even soccer. Just relax, and enjoy. Lay on the dock, listen to the water and nature noises. Take pictures of all the animals that wonder on and off the property. When you leave Whitefish, you will not have to take a vacation from your vacation. You will feel rested and renewed with all that you have experienced here.
