About Jennifer Lewis

My husband David and I bought 5 acres of this beautiful property and built Out of Bounds Trail Condo. We lived there for 4 years until our family doubled in size with the birth of our twin boys. We needed more space so we built the main house in 2010 where we all currently reside. We love the serenity, wildlife and peacefulness living out in the woods and we hope you will find it as special as we do.

Jennifer Lewis purchased this condo in 2006

Why Jennifer Lewis chose Whitefish Lake Area

We bought this property because we wanted acreage and liked the idea of more wildlife than people around. We also like the quick access to town and Glacier Park and lots of hiking trails right out the door.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with Out of Bound Trail Condo because you feel like you are living in the tree tops. There are lots of windows looking out at mountains and tree tops. It is especially beautiful in winter when all the trees are laced with snow.

Quiet and Delightful

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Jennifer's delightful home at the end of August. It is located in a very quiet, secluded area but close to Whitefish which is a lovely little town with great coffee, cafes, arts, yoga, crossfit/ gyms, a sweet lake with tons of activities and even delicious local breweries.

As remarked by other travelers, the home does not have air conditioning so in the middle of the summer, evenings do get warm in the house but it cools down almost immediately once the sun goes down. The house is impeccably clean, well appointed and very comfortable. It is ideal for a family with 1 or 2 children. Not sure about 4 adults (the mezzanine is a great bedroom addition but might be tough for some people to reach). Jennifer is a wonderful host who left useful notes, information about the area and even a bottle of wine.

The only drawback we noted is that the wifi connection was very poor and somewhat frustrating to use at times. We talked to Jennifer about it and I am sure this can easily be fixed.

A note for hikers. The rental is about 40-45 minutes away from Glacier National Park, which is really not that bad. However, the park is /was far busier than we ever expected. Once in the park, there is only one main road that leads to most trails. It took easily an additional hour to 1.5 hour (depending on your destination) to get to trail heads. Parking is a huge issue and snail-paced traffic can be frustrating. If you want to hike in the park around Many Glacier, Two Medicine, you will need to count about 3+ hours one way to get there (then return!) depending on traffic.

This obviously does not remove anything from the charm of Jennifer's home. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Very secluded and private, clean and well stocked

  • 5 of 5

Nice condo, no need for air conditioning here, close the windows during the day, open them at night. 45 minute drive to West Glacier entrance. Clean condo, has everything you need to spend a relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle. Would stay there again. Host is very accessible.

Beautiful location deep in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place that is close to the parks but not stuck in the middle of a tourist trap. Out of bounds condo is exactly that! Beautiful scenery and wildlife right at your door step with all the comforts of a new home. I can't say enough good things about this place and the owner is wonderful to work with. If you stay here you will not be disappointed. I can't wait to come back for another stay!

5 stars for "Out of bounds" condo!

Great place to recharge!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I enjoyed our stay at Out of Bounds. The place was clean, well-stocked and easy to access. While this place is a bit far from Glacier, we did not find the hour drive to be terrible. We made use of the kitchen daily and the washer and dryer was a nice to have as we used before heading out to Oregon. The only minor issue is that the condo can get a bit warm in the summer when the sun sets as there are no blinds on some of the west facing windows. However, I am sure it is wonderful in the winter. :-) Loved the place and would highly recommend.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The condo had a beautiful country setting that quiet and surrounded by nature. It was very comfortably furnished and we loved the decor. Everything we needed was there, including a dishwasher and washer/dryer with detergent. Ok. Those weren't necessities but nice to have especially with all the cooking we did and many trips for hiking fishing and boating. My husband loved the grill and we all loved the huge deck.

Great family stay

  • 4 of 5

Out of Bounds condo was very comfortable and suited the needs for our family vacation perfectly. We enjoyed seeing the deer in the backyard and the sense of seclusion it provided. The kitchen was very well equipped and having a washer and dryer allowed us to pack lighter.

The west entrance to Glacier NP is about one hour away where we spent a good part of our time.

Thanks Jennifer!
