Renovated fifties lake house built by the local car dealer to be the jewel of Flathead Lake. We loved the 1950s lake house feel and left much of the original charm. As the lot was split and a single-story home built in front, we do not have lake access. We do have beautiful views of the lake 100 yards away.
You will find the lake ever-present while at "home" with bedroom, living room and kitchen windows overlooking the lake. Our favorite room, the sunroom, is full of light with over 30 feet of windows and a private entrance.
The bedrooms are furnished with Montana-made log frame beds and furniture. We have selected high quality mattresses and linens with high thread count.
The living room has a queen-size futon couch, excellent wood stove and flat screen TV. We have a varied selection of DVDs, books and games.
The fifties kitchen features a maple table with seating for six. We provide a set of good pots and pans, dishes, silverware, quality bakeware, coffee grinder, coffee maker, toaster, microwave and blender. Everything you need to make, serve and enjoy a great meal is here including a small cookbook library.
The 3/4 bath is full of fifties charm including the turquoise built-in tiled shower.
The covered deck has a teak table with cooler and seats six. It is a great place for an evening barbecue or to gaze at the sunset over the lake with a glass of wine or cup of tea.
The lawn is well-loved with flowerbeds, fruit trees and space enough for croquet, badminton, or soccer.
Our philosophy as landlords is to provide comfortable, high-quality accommodations with an eye for detail and beauty.
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.
OUR GENERAL SETTING
Within walking distance, a few hundred feet, you will find groceries, banking, gas/car wash, Steve's video rental, espresso, McDonald's, Ace Hardware, Pizza Hut, Burgerville, (Polson’s favorite fast food-seafood baskets, burgers, chicken, malts) directly across the street, The Hot Spot- an excellent family-run Thai restaurant is 4 doors to the west.
Lake opportunities are minute's away:
SK Marina-- 400 yards west, is visible from our back door. They offer boat put in, dock slips, jet ski/boat rentals and scenic lake cruises- (part of Kwa Tuk Nuk Best Western); 406.883.3636.
Glacier Raft, next to SK Marina-- Here you will find daily white-water river trips, chartered fishing, sea kayak and paddle board trips and instruction. Flathead raft also rents sea kayaks and paddleboards for your own use- Flathead Raft Company, P.O. Box 1596, Polson MT, 59860; 800.654.4359 or 406.883.5838,
Only a little further, a two minute drive, will get you to Flathead Lake Marina. They rent boats and water toys to pull behind. They also rent jet skis.- Flathead Lake Marina, 50230 HWY 93 South, Polson Montana 59860; 406.883.0999.
Boettcher Park is ½ mile (ten minutes walk) east. The Park has a picnic area, swimming, zero-entry beach for young swimmers, showers, playset, swings, horseshoes, volleyball, concessions, paddleboat rentals, and the Port Polson Players live summer theater.
Polson Bay Golf Club, the largest course in the area (27 holes) and the only course directly on the shore of Flathead Lake is 1/4 mile from our door. Summer rates are nine holes for $28 or 18 for $48. Two other courses are within 20 minutes drive. Nine more courses are between 45 minutes and 1 1/2 hours drive.

Polson, the largest town on Flathead Lake, and offers art galleries, book stores, gift shops, dining, health food, yoga classes, a 2-screen movie theater, Kwa Tuq Nuk Best Western Casino, and several city lake parks.
A designated bike trail runs in front of the house and connect 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.
Glacier National Park, 73 miles north is a great one-day adventure; your family will always remember the drive to Logan Pass at the top of the Going to the Sun Road.
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, orchards, state parks and beaches along the way.
