About the Property

Waterfront home with 1 Bedroom, sleeping loft, guest cabin, and private dock

This newly constructed waterfront home and guest cabin is located on the Angel Island channel of Bull Lake, in Northwest Montana. We are located two and a half hours northeast of Spokane, WA, one hour east of Sandpoint, ID, and two hours west of Kalispell, MT.

With your own private dock, you have access from the channel to 5 mile long Bull Lake, which rests between the Cabinet Mountain Wilderness Area and the Scotchman peaks on the border of Montana and Idaho. The Channel is 50 foot wide and allows access from your private dock to the lake. Besides the unmatched scenery, the main lake is perfect for swimming, water skiing, kayaking, canoeing, and offers some of the best variety of fishing in Montana.

Hike the nearby Ross Creek Cedars and experience an old growth forest firsthand, or head up into the Cabinet Mountains where Alpine Lakes, glaciers and wildlife abound. 18 miles away the Kootenai Falls are a must see for everyone.

The nearby Yaak River and the Kootenai Falls are both destinations for milder site-seeing trips, or extreme whitewater Rafting & Kayaking.

As winter arrives we are only an hour from Schweitzer Mountain, near Sandpoint, ID, Two and a half hours from Whitefish Mountain, in Whitefish, MT, And just over an hour to Turner Mountain, near Libby, MT. There are numerous snowmobile trails in the area, including the Keeler, Spar Lake, and Spruce Lake Trails. Deep powder and wide open basins await at the end of the trails for the more advanced riders.

This newly constructed 1500 square foot home, is situated at the top of a large lawn, that gently slopes down to the Channel on Bull Lake. Beyond the channel is a view of Cabinet Mountains. The home includes 2 bedrooms, one of which is a very large loft that sleeps 6, and the other is the master bedroom. The Living Room has a sofa sleeper for 2. 3 bathrooms, one with a double vanity & Tub/Shower, 1 with a shower, & 1 Outdoors that is fully plumbed. A Living Room, Dining Area, and fully furnished Kitchen, open to a Cathedral Ceiling highlighted with logs and natural wood trim. A very large laundry room includes Washer, & Dryer. Off the Kitchen is a cedar deck with unmatched views and below is a covered patio surrounded by a wall of river rock.
