About the property

Sleep 5 in this cabin-atmosphere condo near Glacier Park & Whitefish Mtn Resort

Welcome to our Whitefish Glacier Retreat! Enjoy a cabin atmosphere in this 2-bedroom condo on Big Mountain in Ptarmigan Village, minutes away from the mountain resort town of Whitefish, Glacier National Park, Whitefish Mountain Resort (formerly Big Mountain Ski Area) and City Beach on Whitefish Lake. Full of Montana appeal, this partially-remodeled unit is the perfect accommodation for your family's or group's vacation activities.

Make this your personal home base while you check out the many opportunities to relax, shop or play. Whether visiting in the winter or summer, there are 'limitless' options for the outdoor enthusiast or those who prefer a more laid-back agenda. Local guide books, brochures and maps are in the unit to help you plan your activities for the day. A cooler and picnic blanket are also provided for your use during your outdoor excursions.

At the end of your adventure-filled day, you can unwind with a crackling fire in the fireplace, relax with a selection from NETFLIX on the Blu-ray player, soak in the village hot tub, hang out by the indoor or outdoor pool, watch the sunset from the village's private beach on Whitefish Lake, or enjoy a barbecue on your private deck overlooking a secluded forest area.

Floor Plan Layout: The first floor has an outside entry and consists of two bedrooms, full bath with tub/shower, and washer/dryer unit. The entry area includes hooks to hang your jackets and storage cubicles. The second floor is the main living area including a bathroom with small shower. There is an additional outside entrance that leads to a deck with a grill and outdoor table and chairs.

If any issues come up during your stay, on-site management and 24-hour on-call maintenance staff are available to assist you.

CANCELLATION POLICY: We provide a full refund for cancellations that are 14 days or more prior to arrival date.

PLEASE NOTE - There are stairs leading up to the building, outside between the lower and upper condo unit entrances, and a narrow spiral staircase inside between the bedroom level and the main living level. If you or your guests have difficulties with stairs, we would not recommend this unit for you. Safety is our first concern, and we would not want anything to happen to spoil your visit.

About Marilyn Hays

Owners Tom and Marilyn Hays live in the central mountains of Colorado, have three children and five grandchildren. We enjoy camping, hiking, kayaking, fishing, and downhill and back country skiing.

Marilyn Hays purchased this condo in 2001

Why Marilyn Hays chose Whitefish Lake Area

Marilyn lives in Colorado but works in Whitefish, Montana. This condo was purchased to provide a quiet place to relax and unwind at the end of the day. Time and effort were spent to develop a more cabin-like atmosphere to make it a comfortable, enjoyable home-away-from-home during my long stays.

After more than ten years of long-distance commuting, my job changed and now allows me to work remotely from Colorado most of the time. We are happy to share the benefits of our cabin with others, and give YOU a place to call 'home' during your stay.

What makes this condo unique

Because the unit has been owner-occupied for many years, most of the conveniences of home are present. Its proximity to Whitefish Mountain Resort ski area, Glacier National Park, Whitefish Lake and the resort town of Whitefish lends itself to a wide variety of activities.

Very nice and cozy townhouse.

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at this place any time we visit Whitefish. The owner always goes beyond and above to make our visit comfortable. The place is very well furnished and the availability of washer and dryer makes is very convenient. The kitchen is very well stocked, lots of spices and cookware available for those who prefer preparing their own meals. It is only few minutes away from ski resort and the town of Whitefish. It is a perfect travel destination for families seeking a quiet place to relax.

Very clean and enjoyable. Excellent family stay for visiting glacier.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in late August. Property was very clean and well furnished. Area is very close to whitefish resort and about 50 minutes from glacier. We enjoyed it being a bit farther off the beaten path and enjoyed seeing wildlife as well. Great property. One word of caution. Bedrooms are on lower level with a very narrow, steep, spiral staircase to upper level with kitchen, den and tv. Those with mobility issues may have trouble getting up and down the stairs. Would stay here again if we return to glacier.

Owner's Response: Mike - I am glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your comments. I agree with your remarks regarding the stairs, which is why we have a paragraph in our description recommending those with mobility issues consider other accommodations. I am glad you mentioned it since people tend to read the reviews and may not read all of the property description and may miss the information. Thanks - Marilyn

Nicely decorated and comfortable furniture. Kitchen was nicely equipped and being end unit offered privacy. Only negative is that the unit is dark given its location in the woods.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your comments, Deb. I agree that the close proximity of the forest filters the sunlight entering the condo. I am glad you enjoyed the accommodations. Marilyn

Cozy condo in the mountains

  • 4 of 5

The condo was beautiful. Kept well and clean. Fun for the kids. Extras inside games and puzzles. Grilling on the Weber, my husband loved that amenity. 2 pools. The indoor pool was a bit cold, a few people told us to call management and complain, there were a lot of people telling us to complain about that (I believe this is an issue residents have with the management) Wonderful location if you are looking for a more outdoorsy feel. We had breakfast on the deck outside. Heard some good stories about Bears from locals. Great fishing on the properties private beach. Definitely will be back to this location when we come to visit my brother-in-law again. Recommend for a family 4-6 people. Also had great corespondent with the owner and where to rent baby needs... Glacier Baby outfitters delivered and picked up pack n play and highchair to site.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments, Lisa. This was our first experience with Glacier Baby Outfitters, so I am glad it worked out. It is nice to have an option for parents with very young children so they don't have to bring cribs, high chairs, etc.! I will contact management about the pool temperature to make sure it is addressed. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Marilyn

A great place for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Everything you can think of is at your disposal. They have a large selection of household items to use, not just the basics like a lot of places I've stayed. It was very neat, cozy and clean.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments. Since the condo has been my home when working in Whitefish the last fifteen years, I have accumulated most of the kitchen items I typically use. The kitchen definitely has more than the basics! Marilyn
