Property description

Be among the first to rent this bright, spacious, family-friendly home. This new listing sits on a lovely, one-acre rural lot just seven minutes from downtown Whitefish, 20 minutes from the Whitefish Mountain Resort and 30 minutes from Glacier National Park. From the large deck, enjoy your morning coffee or grill up dinner while savoring the beautiful view of the (usually) snow-capped Swan Mountain Range and watching the ducks and geese paddling on our charming local Country Lake. Or, relax in the shade on the large, covered front porch where you can take in a summer rainstorm or, if you're an early riser, catch the flock of wild turkeys wander through the front yard making their daily neighborhood rounds.

The house can sleep 8-10 people. We have four bedrooms, 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs, (three with queen beds, and one with two twins beds) and a futon couch in the family room which converts into a very comfortable full-sized bed. There are two full bathrooms and plenty of towels and linens. There are hardwood floors throughout much of the house.

Upstairs there is a large living room with a picture window facing the mountains and lake adjacent to the dining area with a table that can seat up to 8 people (10 if a couple of them are junior-sized). The large, cheery kitchen has plenty of counter space and is fully stocked with all the appliances, tableware, utensils and cookware you will need to whip up some memorable vacation meals.

Downstairs is a spacious family room with cable TV, Wii, DVD and VCR, along with a large selection of movies for all tastes, from Disney to Drama to Documentary. We provide lots of board games and puzzles for family game nights. There is also a laundry room with washer and dryer for your use.

The large yard is fenced (pets permitted, on approval) with a fire ring and plenty of wood where you can sit outside and enjoy S'mores and scary stories by the fire, or relax with a bottle of wine after a great day of recreating and exploring the beauty of northwest Montana.

As an added bonus, we have a canoe, several kayaks, camping gear and other outdoor gear available for use by our guests.

Best of all, from our convenient location, you are minutes from endless adventure and natural beauty. Experience the glory of Glacier National Park (don't forget your bear spray!), get exhilarated (and wet!) on a whitewater rafting or kayaking adventure, sunbath and swim at the beach on gorgeous Whitefish Lake, ski or snowboard the day away at the world-class Whitefish Mountain Resort (or check out their zipline and mountain bike and hiking trails in the summer), golf (or cross-country ski) at the Whitefish Lake Golf Course, go fly fishing (or ice fishing) in one of our many beautiful rivers or lakes, stroll through art galleries, antique stores and local shops in charming Whitefish by day and at night, gear up for its exceptional theater, symphony, and vibrant music, dancing and bar scene. All this and much, much more are within minutes of your vacation home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: In the summer of 2002, the Mazur family set off from their home in southern California in an RV on their long-planned Great American Roadtrip through the Western United States. As fortune would have it, while passing through Montana, they wandered into Whitefish for breakfast one morning and immediately fell in love with the beautiful, friendly, laid-back town. Within a year, they had packed up their house in So-Cal (along with 2 kids, three dogs, four cats and a snake), and returned to Whitefish for good. Now, more than ten years later, the kids are grown and off to college and the Empty-Nesters don't need so much space anymore. So, we welcome you to our home and hope you enjoy it as much as we have! The owners are local and always available to offer ideas for great things to do in the Last Best Place.
