Natasha Ostrem purchased this house in 2014

Why Natasha Ostrem chose Whitefish Lake Area

We chose to purchase this home in Whitefish due to its perfect downtown location. We love to walk down the street for breakfast to Swift Creek Cafe and to our favorite Mexican restaurant Pescado Blanco or head a block away to Central Avenue in downtown to enjoy a drink at the sky bar on the rooftop of Casey’s overlooking Whitefish. We are still uncovering hidden gems right near the house. We recently discovered a walking trail that starts just a block from the house and goes all the way to the Whitefish city beach. There are so many interesting shops, great restaurants and fun places to enjoy live music right nearby; it truly is a perfect spot for a getaway.

What makes this house unique

One of the few homes in downtown Whitefish with a fully fenced back yard. Home is on two city lots so you have some elbow room. Each bedroom has it's own smart TV with Netflix included. Hardwood floors throughout the main level.

Not Quite up to Expectations

  • 3 of 5

The house is great, the location is even better than expected. There were a few small issues that were annoying to the point of frustration and beyond for our visit. After reading all previous reviews before deciding on this home, I was disappointed in the lack of response from the owner concerning a couple of the issues.

It was unexpectedly warm on the day of our arrival and the air conditioner had a really tough time cooling the house down. A simple response of "give it time" from the owner would have helped alleviate our fears that the air conditioner was broken. Thankfully it did manage to catch up during the night and keep up for the rest of the week. The wine and beer and water were a really nice touch, but we were most looking forward to morning coffee, I even packed our favorite Keurig pods for the stay. The Keurig did not work. The electronic locks were a challenge, turn to the LEFT for the front door; the back door - we never figured it out, but we think it was just not working properly :(! We locked ourselves out several times when we went into the backyard and had to keep going around the house to re-enter via the front door. Parking on the street in front of the house was more of a challenge than expected so we mostly parked in the space provided behind the house. That meant walking around the block to enter via the front door as we could not work the electronic lock on the rear door.

On the positive side, the walk to coffee shops and restaurants downtown was easy and pleasant. And just down the street is access to a wonderful greenway for morning and evening walks. The beds were comfortable and we slept well after the house cooled down after the first night. As we had to "go out" for coffee, we left the house fairly early most mornings to explore the GNP and surrounding areas and didn't return until late afternoon or early evening. Cooking was a bit of a challenge, we found it easier to go back out for dinner or get takeout, but there is a great Safeway close by for essentials and groceries. The large TV's throughout the house were awesome, but we found we really didn't spend much time in the house to watch TV. That's a good thing! We kept getting dropped from the Wi-Fi and had to constantly re-connect (select and re-enter password). But again, as we were only in the house for a few waking hours, that was more of an annoyance than a major issue.

Owner's Response: I'm very sad that our guests didn't fully enjoy their trip and that items caused frustration. We always try to resolve any issues as quickly as possible. One guest called me to tell me the Keurig wasn't working but stated "it was fine" because the house also has a traditional coffee maker. The guest that I spoke to, is not the same one that wrote this review; the guest I spoke to loved the house! We've since replaced the Keurig. The door locks use a 4 digit code and nobody has had an issue before. If I had been asked about the locks, I would have walked the guests through how they work face to face but they didn't mention the issue. Both doors can easily remain unlocked while at the house so I don't know how they "locked themselves out." I double checked the back door and all I can figure is they left the handle locked from the inside. We also haven't had issues with the AC or Wi-Fi in the house before. I feel horrible they didn't enjoy their stay more. I would have done everything possible to fix it if I had known.

We were greeted with wine, beer and water, that was very welcoming, we could walk everywhere, had a great fenced in yard with a shed for our bikes. We all had lots of room and felt very comfortable, would definitely rent there again!

The house was clean, welcoming and organized! The location was perfect for easy access to the downtown in Whitefish. The host was amazingly helpful and quick to respond. It was large and slept 7 people without issue.

Great location for family!

  • 4 of 5

Our group enjoyed closeness to Glacier, but also easy walks to the playground, city beach, and the restaurants and shops in downtown. Complimentary beverages were a nice welcoming touch and kitchen was well stocked. Our granddaughter loved the huge stuffed bear!

Great value, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This is an extremely clean, well maintained property with great attention to detail. Owners have gone to great lengths to make your stay comfortable with laminated instructions for TV use, and instructions for everything you can think of. The owner was prompt in her reponse to questions we had and very easy to work with. You will love the location to downtown whitefish, cute shops, great breakfast places, coffee shops and more within a block or two, yet it's tucked away on a quiet street.
