About the property

2 Bedroom Plus Sleeping Cabin, With Lakefront, Creek and Mountain view

We have 2 acres with 400 water-front feet on Flathead Lake with Stoner Creek as the north border of the property. We offer a quaint A-Frame cabin along with a 10 x 10 sleeping cabin that sits above the creek. The A-Frame includes a 24' x 7' front deck to view Flathead Lake with the Rocky Mountains as the backdrop. First floor of the A-Frame is 24' x 36'. One bedroom downstairs; bathroom with shower only; kitchen with bar seating for 5 people; dining table that seats 6. A-Frame has a large loft (36' x 20'); that includes one queen and one twin bed. The stairs to the loft are very steep and not child friendly or child proof. Volleyball / badminton net is available as well as a tether ball; that makes for great family fun. Kayaks and standup paddle boards are available for your use. You may fish from the dock or you may opt for fishing and tour charters that are available at your front door! You do have shared use of our private dock along with the cabin next door (see listing 808016). There is a fire-pit on the lake front. We do run a fishing charter business with 1 boat parked at the dock. The boat leaves on a charter at 7:00 am and returns at noon and then goes out again at 1:00 pm and returns at 6:00 pm. We do have a port-a-potty on the property set up for the fishing customers that you are welcome to use as needed. Please let us know if renting or bringing a boat that you would want to use at the dock so we can make arrangements. The cabin is not child proof, it is better suited for older children.

About Tobi Campanella

We are 4th generation owners of the Fitch Orchard properties on Flathead Lake and the mouth of Stoner Creek.

Tobi Campanella purchased this cabin in 1926

Why Tobi Campanella chose Lakeside

Although Lakeside is a fairly small community (approx. 2000 people) the town (under 1 mile long) boasts 6 excellent restaurants and 1 brew house, 4 small casinos, as well as hardware and grocery store, banks, Post Office, convenience store, and 4 churches, all are within walking distance!

What makes this cabin unique

This is a beautiful property that has been passed down through four generations. Summer is spectacular in the Flathead Valley! You can spend time enjoying being on the water, day trips to Glacier National Park, shopping in Kalispell, Bigfork, or Whitefish which are all within a 45 minute drive time. Boat tours are available to Wildhorse Island with hiking trails to view Big Horn Sheep, Mule Deer and wild horses. In the evenings you may enjoy the fire pit at the beach.

Beautiful cabin and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Tobi! Your cabin was very comfortable and charming. We appreciated how clean and well stocked everything was. The views were amazing, even with the smoke from the CA fires. We have never been to Flathead Lake, and enjoyed exploring on the boat we rented. The cabin was the perfect place to retreat after a long day of exploring Kallispell, Whitefish, Glacier National Park, or spending the day on the lake. My kids especially loved the quaint sleeping cabin. We had a wonderful time, thank you!

The perfect get-a-way for our busy family!

  • 5 of 5

The A Frame was a perfect match for our busy family. We traveled from South Dakota through the Wyoming Big Horns and Yellowstone Park before taking a break on Flat Head lake for a couple of days. Our teen age girls spent hours playing volleyball and swimming in the lake, even though the water is a bit cold. We used the paddle boards to check out some of the homes along the coast. Having them available to use saved us hundreds in rental expenses.

Tobi and Pat were available any time if we needed them. They were great to visit with and were perfect hosts.

From Flat Head, we traveled north through Glacier National Park, then Back home to SD.

This was a great trip and our stay in Lakeside made it very memorable.

Great house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! Tobi and her husband were there to welcome us and, upon seeing our two-year old daughter, suggested bringing over a child gate to keep her off the steep stairs (which really helped). They had just installed an air conditioner, which helped keep the house cool. We spent most of our time on the deck, looking out onto the lake, as well as swimming and kayaking. The yard was big enough for my daughter to get lots of excercise! It was an easy 5-10 min walk into town for groceries, a slice of pizza (super friendly at Stageline!) and ice cream. A lovely time had by all!

Maple Lake, MN

Everything you need is here!

  • 5 of 5

A great place for a family vacation! We vacationed here for 5 days with our three teenagers. Tobi and Pat are great hosts. Easy, close access to Glacier NP for hikes and mountain views, and all the amenities at the A-frame for everything you'd like to do while relaxing at Flathead Lake. Believe the reviews that say the stairs are steep! Not for the very young or the elderly, but perfect for teens. Our youngest fell in love with the sleeping cabin! We appreciated the badminton, the kayaks, and the SUPs that gave us so many options for activities. We also enjoyed grilling out and eating dinner every night on the front deck watching the lake activity, then a campfire and s'mores down at the lake later in the evening. A small grocery store right across the street had anything we had forgotten to purchase in Kalispell. We tried our luck fishing with Pat one morning and found some lake trout. He's a great Captain! We hope to be back again someday.
