Why Patti Burk chose Whitefish

We came to Whitefish for numerous years before building this home. We would come on weekends and summer vacations. This is a well loved home!

What makes this house unique

Lots of deer to watch, and a couple of bald-headed eagles like to perch in the very tall tree out on the left side of the house. They like to swoop down in front of the deck to fish in the lake!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had a feeling that it was going to be perfect for our family when I spoke with the owner on the phone. She wanted to make sure hat everything was what we asked for and it was. All eight of us flew into Glacier National Airport,hit the grocery store and headed to,the house. Whitefish Lake was gorgeous from every angle as we rounded the lake,to the end of the road where the cabin was. It is on the quiet side of the lake,about a ten minute boat ride to the lodge. We walked into he house and stared through the floor to ceiling windows at an incredible view of e trees and water.the house was beautiful and perfect for our family of six adults and two children. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook and the beds and bedding was wonderful and every bedroom had a view of the lake. I have even emailed Patti to ask her where they bought their bed in the master bedroom because my husband slept so well. The house was immaculate and there was lefty of room for our family inside and out. The dock was great for a boat and is on a quiet bay that was safe for water sports for the kids. We did a lot during the week, we went to Glacier Park,Flathead Lake, rode the lift to the top of the ski lift,hung out in town for lunch and cocktails a couple of days,boated to the lodge for lunch,dinner and cocktails at different times during the week. But our favorite days were when we spent Te afternoons on the boat ,barbecuing on the deck and talking till the sun set. It was relaxing week for all of us. We would love to come back!

Great stay in Whitefish

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home to feel like you’ve really gotten away. The layout works great for a large family or two families. The setting is stunning and there is plenty of room. We stayed a week during a big snow storm and it couldn’t have been cozier. It’s about a 30 min. drive to the mountain or town which we loved- it felt like we were really on vacation. Patti and Tom were so helpful and went out of their way to make us feel at home. We can’t wait to go back in the summer to experience the lake- this house is a winner!

Lakeside Luxury

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at this lovely property was peaceful and relaxing. Mornings were started on the deck with coffee in hand enjoying the beautiful view and sometimes fly-by of the resident eagles! A real treat! The home is large and very comfortable with room to spread out and enjoy some solitude or the company of your family, really the perfect balance. Patti was very attentive to our needs and sincerely wanted to ensure our stay was the best it could be. The drive around the lake to get to the property was short and full of beautiful vistas along the way! The deck looking out over the lake and expansive window views from within the house really made this home a special retreat! We LOVED it and will definitely come back so we can enjoy the full experience without the smoke from the Glavier fires, which was not bad at the house. The area is a real gem. I had never heard of it before but now that I have will definitely return. Friendly people in the town and an amazing location in its own right. Nearness to Glacier National Park make it that much more special. I highly recommend this wonderful home!

Lovely house in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and comfortable with space for everyone. A bit far from town and Glacier - town is about 20 minutes away, and Glacier is an hour, an hour and a half to McDonald Lodge. Lake is beautiful, but boat rentals are $500 for 8 hours.

Lovely homeowner and beautiful views!

beautiful and family friendly

  • 4 of 5

Three generations managed to get together for a friends wedding nearby this lovely home. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay and wish it could have been longer. Comfortable, relaxing, and very well organized for guests. Particularly the kiddie gates on the stairs and adjoining children's bedroom design! Patti is very helpful and responsive. Thankyou. One comment would be better lighting in the bathrooms and info about recycling arrangements, but we figured it out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, I appreciate your kind thoughts on our home. I did want to say that, you are right on no information regarding recycling as there is no recycling in our neck of the woods! Apparently they are "getting close" to some kind of program, but they have been saying that for years! My husband is going to work on the lighting issue and hopefully see some improvement soon!

The description was as accurate as it could be.

The pictures are reflective of it being a very cool home but once there it is beyond anything I have ever rented, to quote "this place is ridiculous”!

Where do I start...the setting is amazing with a lake full of fish (husband fished and caught every night), the house is stocked to the nines...NO JOKE! Anything we needed it was there, kitchen cooking gear for humble cooks like me but set-up for the serious cooks also, bathrooms had, soap, body wash, shampoo and conditioner, hair dryer etc, bedrooms are very comfortable with spectacular views...Oh and did I mention the robes laid out on each I said ridiculous.

We were a party of 6 adults and the home overall is comfortable, never felt crowded. Great gathering spaces yet big enough to get privacy if needed.

Patty was a delight to work with and was very accommodating to our needs, I would recommend this home to anyone I know…wish I lived closer. Thank you again for a once in a lifetime spectacular vacation.

Outstanding home and lake property

  • 5 of 5

This home was just beautiful and we felt like we were at our own home! The rooms were all good size and accommodated our family! We loved the large dinning room table that we used for dinners and we all could sit around. The view from the house was amazing and the lake was perfect. We liked being on the quiet side of the lake and not bothered by all the boat traffic. We were able to paddle board, swim and fish. Hiking trails near by were perfect. Driving to the house was beautiful also...over small bridges....seeing deer, turkeys, horses and even a ,fun, fun! Needless to say we enjoyed our stay and would for surely come back. It was beautiful!
