Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 in Bedrooms))

This charming waterfront bungalow sits directly on the shoreline of Skidoo Bay. The windows offer breathtaking views up the entire length of Flathead Lake to the peaks of Glacier Park. Snuggled in by tall pines and the fruitful valley of the 'Famous Flathead Cherry Trees,' this bungalow allows you to feel completely free of stress from the busy world around us. The Bungalow dates back to the 1940's and includes updates performed over the years, including a fun 'retro cabin' interior decor. Although the Bungalow is seasonal, guests are able to catch the early bright colors of Spring through to the bright ray of reds of Fall.

The smoke-free bungalow offers many amenities including beach chairs, Gas Barbeque and picnic area. There is a private dock to tie your boat or Personal water craft to(caution - no over night parking). If you are not bringing your own, we are close to a fully-equipped rental shop offering fishing and water-skiing boats and p.w.c. The pebble beach is gentle and great for swimming and that 'World Champion Rock Skipping' competition. There is also a fire pit on the beach perfect for late night marshmallow roasting and ghost stories.

Inside the bungalow you will find two bedrooms. One designed to be a master with a queen-size bed. The other smaller room also has a queen bed. The living room holds the dining table and over sized chairs for game playing or reading in front of the fireplace. The lakefront room looks out at the lake and contains two sleeper sofas - perfect for extra company or the kids.

You also will find many great Flathead attractions close by:

For the Historian: There are any museums and cultural centers containing facts and artifacts of the area. Explore Glacier National Park or discover the Salish, Kootenai and Pend d'Orielle tribes, Lewis and Clark and Our Famous Flathead Lake Monster.

For the Sportsman: There are record size Lake Trout (42 lbs) and native Bull Trout (26 lbs) among the many species of fish in the lake. Enjoy whitewater kayaking and rafting, rock climbing, water sports of all levels. For the Diner and Shopper: there are well known eateries, breweries, wineries for tasting and everything from art to the hard to find antique... and NO SALES TAX!

Last but not least, for the Relaxer: Crisp, clean air, sunny skies and new memories.

We are easy to get to and yet give you the feeling of being away from the outside world. Updated visitor information, recreation, boat and water-craft rentals, charters, and tour information will be provided on site.

Flathead Lake Bear Necessity Beach Bungalow at Skidoo Bay
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Adorable character home on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time here. The waterfront access is what drew us here and it did not disappoint. The kids loved playing in the water, fishing off the new dock, and skipping rocks. The house is endearingly vintage (which means no air conditioning) ned comfortable. We had such a wonderful time, we can't wait to go back next year!

Stunning Views

My Family had a very relaxing time at this beautiful cottage. I loved listening to the water as it was so close. The owners were very gracious and friendly. A true Montana welcome and an extremely comfortable, cozy environment. We hated to leave.
