Carriage House on the lake w/ year-round access

This immaculate 1 bedroom Carriage House offers you the best of all vacation spots – 150 feet of lake frontage with crystal clear water (you can count the rocks and fish swimming below you!), fantastic views, southwestern exposure for sunny days & sunsets that will stun you, eagles flying past your windows, loons and ducks swimming by, great fishing, hiking and wilderness areas close by, Flathead Lake within 45 minutes and only 1 1/4 hour's drive (50 miles) from Glacier National Park. The local gathering and eating spot is 5 minutes away. Amazing golfing, all varieties of sports, antiquing and art galleries are available throughout the Flathead Valley. Rock climbing is nearby, as is sky diving, hiking, and fishing.

Located above the owner’s garage with private entrance, this getaway sleeps 2/3 and comes completely furnished. (The living area has a fold out sleeper, but it is too small for 4 adult people. It accommodates a couple (2 adults) or a couple with a small child or one adult with 2 small children.) It includes a full kitchen, bath, living room, all linens, full appliances, cooking equipment, Wi-Fi access, TV for only VCR & DVD player, HDMI cable for using your computer, totally private views, your own BBQ & seating area overlooking the lake, separate sloping path to the lake ( bring water shoes for the rocky shore), dock & swim dock, canoe, kayak and life vests and fire pit. (Beach area is shared with owner only!) Perfect for that private vacation or for visiting family or friends in the area.

In winter, play in the snow, ice skate, cross country ski or ice fish on the lake! Year-round enjoy the neighboring towns, a variety of restaurants and ski at the world-class Whitefish Mountain Resort.

Super convenient for visiting family at 2 nearby treatment facilities.

About Owner/Manager

My husband and I raised our children here during summers and all holidays before finally making the jump to living here full-time. And wondered why we did not do it sooner! I am born and raised in Montana and have found that this is the most perfect place to be!

Owner/Manager purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Owner/Manager chose Marion

The lake is literally picture-perfect! We have year-round easy access, clean water, great fishing, swimming, boating, wilderness around the corner, yet are only 20 miles from town. We watch the fawns come eat our flowers in the summer, the eagles fly by in the fall, the moose amble by in the winter, and the bunnies come out in the spring. What else could you want?

What makes this apartment unique

We love to sit out and look at the lake. It never fails to uplift our spirits and give us a new lease on life. We light a fire down by the lake summer or winter and can talk into the night with friends and family.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Patricia and Frank took such good care of us. So warm, friendly, and accommodating, helping us get everything that we needed, and then giving us space and privacy when we needed that. Beautiful little house in a beautiful spot. And the lake, so clear, so blue , We went swimming every day, loved it.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Guest cottage is about an hour from Glacier, but right next to peace and qiite. So quiet we had deer sleeping outside our bedroom window in mid-day. The lake and surrounding mountains were very picturesque. We had no issues except not enough time to do everything we wanted. Wedding and family kept getting in the way. Great vacation spot, just give yourself enough time to enjoy everything there is to offer.

Thanks Frank and Patricia.

Little Bitterroot Lake is one of the clearest, cleanest lakes in Montana. It is a family-oriented lake with no public marinas and only 2 boat launches, keeping it fairly private and quiet. Trees, mountains, and wilderness surround our piece of heaven! Close year-round access to Hwy 2.
