About The Owner

My wife Janis and I have lived in Whitefish for over 25 years. We love Montana! We are also the owners of another vacation rental property - The StoneHouse at Duck Lake - on the east side of Glacier National Park near St. Mary's and Many Glacier. I am a singer/songwriter specializing in original Montana music and perform around the Flathead Valley and Glacier National Park. The Railway Loft is an incredible space for your VRBO stay and we hope you'll consider staying with us while visiting Whitefish.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Whitefish Lake Area

My wife's sister bought the Railway Loft as an investment and for a place to stay when she visits us from Seattle. It's location is in the up and coming area of 'The Railway District' a historic section near downtown Whitefish that is a great mix of local business, delicious restaurants, art galleries, and small homes. The Railway Loft is new construction beautifully designed with plenty of open space, natural light, wood floors, concrete countertops, stainless steel appliances and beautiful built in features. There's a beautiful view looking into the Big Mountain and a nearby walking trail to Whitefish Lake.

What makes this condo unique

The Railway Loft is conveniently located within blocks of downtown Whitefish. We are blocks away from the Amtrak Station, art galleries, performing art centers, restaurants, Whitefish Lake and Whitefish River, coffee houses, bars, bookstores, local stores - well, you get the idea! We love being able to walk anywhere in town or take our bikes for a quick ride to City Beach. Inside the space is beautiful and comfortable with special attention to design detail and finishings. It's mountain luxury and we know you'll love it too!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a wonderful time at the Railway Loft. It is so spacious and well-appointed, with everything you need. There are books, puzzles, games and a picture window looking toward Big Mountain, so we never missed not having a TV in the living room. Plus, there is so much to see and do in Whitefish. Highly recommended. Thanks David and JJ. I will definitely be back!

Great location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for two nights with my mother-in-law while the men in our family camped. It was the perfect size condo for two, and is well-equipped with comfortable linens, a great kitchen with all the needed basics, and plenty of room to relax. We didn't have a car, but never missed it as the access to restaurants and shops could not be better. The owners were always just a text away if we had questions. I would highly recommend this property.

Great location downtown yet still had a great veiw from the the dining and living area (this was a pleasant surprise). Very clean, up to date, and stocked with the essentials. I was on business travel with family and will seek out this property again in the future if opportunity arises!

Awesome condo and location

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Railway Loft. Loved the location to town and walking distance to catch bus to Big Mountain(Whitefish Ski Resort). The condo has everything you need for your stay. Owners checked in on us and suggested getting food for condo as a major snow storm was approaching. That was very nice to receive this call as our family is not used to the possibility of being snow bound!

This is a great condo/loft right in the heart of downtown. Walking distance to plenty of bars, eateries, shops. Small market within walking distance and super convenient to the road leading to Big Mtn/Whitefish ski area.

The place is tastefully done and stocks all the cooking utensils, bed sheets, towels, etc. Just bring your personal stuff and show up. I would think that it would be a great place in the summer or fall for hiking and mtn biking when you don't want to camp.

Plus, Dave is super nice. He has true southern hospitality. Met us at the rental and showed us how everything worked and went over the info sheet that included how to access wifi. -TS

Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Whitefish, and we didn't want to leave. The loft was very cozy and perfect for us. Nestled in the center of downtown, we were able to walk everywhere if we wanted. Though, it was only my wife and I, it's clear the loft is set up for parties and larger families. We recommend the Railway loft to anyone wanting to visit Whitefish in style!
