We provide cable TV, high speed internet, DVDs, games and a small varied library, including children's books.
The master bedroom (12' x 12') has a reading nook, closets with built in dressers, and two lake-view windows. The other patio-side bedroom is more modest (8' x 13') with a double bed and a dresser. Our beds are new and our bedding tasteful, selected for high thread count and quality fabric.
The pastel pink kitchen features the original custom refrigerator/freezer and built-in blender and griddle. All modern conveniences -toaster, microwave, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, blender and teapot-are also present. We provide a set of good pots and pans, matching place settings, flatware and quality bakeware. Everything you need to make, serve and enjoy a great meal is here. We even have a small cookbook library.
The back barbecue deck, with art deco railing, faces the lake. It's large eaves offer ample shade during the heat of the day. Bathed by full sun early in the morning and late in the day this is a great spot to enjoy a quiet breakfast or sip wine and watch night fall over the lake. On the south side of the house, there is a large flagstone garden patio, the perfect place to work on your tan, read a book, or take in the morning sun. Our lot has ample parking.
Our philosophy as landlords is to provide comfortable, high-quality accommodations with an eye for detail and beauty.
OUR GENERAL SETTING
A small undeveloped wetlands/woods to the east provides a haven for the wildlife-- deer, raccoon, fox, ducks and geese, doves and songbirds, gulls, eagles, owls and hawks—often spied from our property.

A designated bike trail runs in front of the house and connects to Polson (west) and the Walmart/Safeway shopping center (east). A hundred yards north, the old railroad bed has been converted into a 15-mile non-motorized walk/bike path. Several nice biking loops using this path and the country roads south of town are available. WE PROVIDE SOME BIKES AND HELMETS BUT DO NOT HAVE OTHER SAFETY GEAR.
Hunting opportunities abound. Pablo Reservoir National Wildlife Area --10 minutes from our door, provides refuge to upland birds and roughly 80,000 ducks. Hunting is available on thousands of acres of State and Salish Kootenai Tribe lands. One-half hour south, Ninepipe National Wildlife Area offers still more great habitat and hunting. Your dogs are welcome but we ask that you keep the mud and burrs outdoors, and keep dogs off the furniture and beds.
Fishing is also a great way to spend the day. The Jocko River offers excellent catch-and-release trout fishing. Kerr Dam spillway provides oxygen rich water for a variety of species from trout to bass and pike. Flathead Lake is a well-known lake trout fishery with an unlimited catch limit during Mack Days when anglers can win prize money of up to $5,000 for tagged fish. The Flathead River and several mountain lakes offer still more fishing opportunities.
We are located on the Salish/Kootenai reservation which offers great sightseeing, from the 114 year-old Pow Wow at Arlee to the moving frescoes at St. Ignatius Mission, to the National Bison Range. The stunning Mission Mountain Wilderness has dozens of lakes and offers great day hikes. The Garden of Ten Thousand Buddhas, 50 miles south, offers peace and inspiration for the spiritual traveler.

Finally, you can easily drive around Flathead Lake (105 miles) in a day, with plenty of time to enjoy the many quaint towns, bays, wineries, restaurants, orchards, state parks and beaches along the way.
