FABULOUS Lakefront Property on Rocky Point! Classic cabin with every amenity!

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,600 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 6 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath lakefront cabin. sleeps 9 in comfort

Walk out the front door onto your private deck overlooking beautiful Indian Bay on Flathead Lake. Stroll across a manicured grassy lawn to your private beach and dock and have a seat on your patio. Enjoy a game of bocce or volleyball on that nice big lawn later. In the evening build a fire in the firepit and roast some s'mores. Tomorrow you could go hiking in Glacier Park, only 1.5 hours away. That is, unless the lake is really smooth, in which case you may take a boat tour of some of Flathead Lake's miles (30 miles long-10-15 wide), then have a picnic on Wildhorse Island, just across the bay.

When it's time for bed, take your choice. The master suite has a king bed, views of the lake and a large bathroom with walk-in closet. The guest room is cozy with a queen sized bed and fluffy duvets. It adjoins a large bathroom. The upstairs is family or kid heaven. It has a king bed plus 3 twin beds with private bath and room to spread out. Our home sleeps 9 very comfortably.

The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with lots of room for multiple cooks. The granite counter and hickory flooring give it a cabin look with a modern touch. Two seating areas adjoin the kitchen. One faces the lake and the other wraps around a custom stone fireplace. You can dine informally at the large bar or more formally at our antique oak dining table. Then, of course, there's the outside which has numerous seating and dining options.

Park you boat at the dock, pull up a chair and have a fabulous vacation! It's a wonderful retreat in a very special place. Over five generations of our family have made memories here. We all call it home, even when we don't live here. You will too.

(Please keep in mind that the winter season is beautiful as well. Not a more peaceful setting anywhere with the option of snow skiing at Blacktail 1 hour away and Whitefish Mountain resort 1.5 hours.)

About Shelley Geiszler

'We,' Debby and Shelley are sisters who, along with our families, own this wonderful cabin. Shelley and husband Tim live in Missoula but spend most of the summer enjoying Flathead Lake at an adjacent property. Debby lives full time at the Lake. We both grew up near here and and have spent as much time as possible at the lake since we were born.

Shelley Geiszler purchased this house in 1933

Why Shelley Geiszler chose Polson

Our grandparents and parents have had this property since 1933 and the evolution has been remarkable. Now in the hands of the third generation, we think it is one of the most special places on earth. We are committed to passing it on to our children, as well.

What makes this house unique

The really special things about our home:

1. It has the character and warmth of and old cabin (the original building was constructed in 1933) with every modern amenity. It was completely remodeled in 2007.

2.The setting can't be beat. Best spot (we think anyway!) on Flathead lake.

3. The green grass yard, swing set and sand box are designed for kids--and croquet and bocce and volley ball and lying down and watching the clouds.

4. the dock is only a few feet from the front door and the gradual beach is perfect for swimming.

5. The fire pit is a place to make s'mores you will all remember.

6. The sunsets are fabulous and different every night

7. Hiking and biking are terrific. There are 3 golf courses within 30 minutes and they are affordable.

8. Flathead lake.....

Beautiful Lake Setting for a Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We cannot wait for an opportunity to stay here again. The pictures really can't do the house and view justice. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment and were so sad to leave, but can't wait to come back. The inside of the house is so nicely furnished and there was more than enough seating and room for our group of friends and family. The large kitchen made preparing meals easy, and although there was plenty of seating at the table and bar the weather was perfect and we ate most of our dinners outside around the fire pit down by the water. Although the water was chilly it didn't keep the kids or adults out of the clearest water we've seen. We wish we had had time to rent a boat, but spent a lot of time in nearby Glacier National Park and exploring craft breweries. The owners were amazing! They were so pleasant and helpful during our stay. I don't think I can stress enough how amazing this location is how much we wished we could stay there for the rest of the summer. It would never get old.

Thank you for one of the most unforgettable vacations! We can't wait to get back!

Very warm homelike house with lovely furnishings and absolutly beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

Our family members numbered 31 in all including 26 adults and 5 little ones and 6 of us stayed at this home. We felt we got the best of the lot. The large yard and proximity to the lake were amazing. We enjoyed just lounging on the deck and watching the world go by. What a beautiful setting! The kitchen was great to work in and we served all 31 of us July 4th and had a ball. The fireworks were unbelievable. Debbie and Shelly were very easy people to like. We recommend this place highly.

Our property on Flathead lake is in the heart of the Mission Valley and is only a 1.5 hour drive to Glacier Park, easily one of the most beautiful parks in the United States. Whitefish Mountain Resort is also 1.5 hours away. In the summer the mountain offers chairlift rides with phenomenal views including Glacier Park, hiking, zip line and mountain biking trails. In the winter the skiing is terrific and Blacktail Ski Area is even closer.

The reality is, though, there's no need to leave the property. The largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi is just steps out the door with panoramic views and long summer evenings followed by sunsets you won't forget. There is hiking and biking, road and mountain, just out the door. Several golf courses to choose from in the vicinity. Tennis courts in Polson. Fishing off the dock or in your boat. There is charter fishing available in Big Fork just 45 minutes away. Endless fun to be had or just relax in this beautiful setting and home. The adirondacks and hammocks await.
