About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10 including children)

Hurry - only a few weeks available for summer 2018. Sorry to say one of the Resorts has closed. See why our guests have been with us for over 20 years. Ask about our 2nd home that sleeps 14 people. We are located on the Southwest side of the lake at Kalispell Bay Shores, in the heart of the Selkirk mountain range. Sheltered from the northern winds, the bay provides a perfect environment for families to swim and recreate in Priest Lake’s crystal clear waters. Whether you choose to swim, water ski, jet ski, fish, kayak, or pleasure cruise, there is no better location on the lake to start your day than the white sandy beaches of Kalispell Bay Shores.

If you want try an activity away from the water, you might consider mountain biking, hiking, camping, shopping, fine dining, huckleberry picking, bear and deer watching, or sitting outside by the campfire stargazing under the grand canopy of the Milky Way. We enjoy sharing our homes with friends who return each year, and for whom it has become a family tradition to vacation here at Priest Lake. We hope to meet you soon at our special paradise in the woods of Northern Idaho.

About Mary Rudie & Kevin Rudie

We visited Priest Lake 53 years ago and fell in love with it. Our guests are our friends now . It start with your first phone call so we can personally describe our home to you. Many have been with us including 3rd generation for 30 years. We seldom have openings available. We love seeing families enjoying the lake as we do. We welcome you to come and join us.

Mary Rudie & Kevin Rudie purchased this house in 1974

Why Mary Rudie & Kevin Rudie chose Priest River

It is not a rental area. The people that live in this bay have been here for generations. We are the 2nd owners from the original Home Steader's from the 1800's. We have a lovely sandy beach for sun bathing and fun for the kids. Tapered, shallow shoreline for small children to play in the water and learn to swim.

What makes this house unique

You are not far from a Marina, golf course, gas, store, and place to eat out if needed. The best is the view of the whole surrounding area our home. You will want to return and make this place a family tradition.

Best Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the BEST place we have ever stayed at Priest Lake. Our family could not have asked for better accommodations. The house, beds, covered deck, view, beach, kitchen, fire pit were absolutely fabulous. The owners, Mary, Gary & Kevin were awesome! Gary went fishing and caught us dinner for the entire family one morning. He even prepared it for us, it was so good and fresh. I would recommend this property to everyone. We will definately be back.. (we didn't want to leave) Thank you Rudie Family for making our vacation one to remember!
