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.

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for a girls weekend in whitefish! It is such a beautiful house and is well taken care of. Lots of space for the 7 of us girls to sleep. We loved spending time in the big back yard and the lawn chairs were great to have. The upstairs bathroom was so fun to get ready together in, so much natural light!! It was great to be basically a half block away from downtown whitefish. Would rent this home again in a heartbeat! Thanks for leaving us the complementary goodies and for sharing your wonderful home.

Great stay! Everything as promised and more.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights over President's Day weekend. The description of the house was exactly what we got and more - Natasha left us bottled water and beer in the refrigerator and wine and coffee for the Keurig on the counter. My wife called and Natasha promptly brought over some dishwasher detergent. The location is perfect - the kids could walk around downtown when they needed a break from mom & dad. We'll stay again next time we're in Whitefish.

Great location to downtown

Went skiing all day with two friends and then spent the rest of the night downtown. This was a 2 block walk home which was perfect.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days over Christmas at the Manse - with room to kick back and watch movies and football in the living room when we weren't skiing, enjoying the trails in Riverside Park or exploring town. We ate in for a couple of meals and enjoyed the convenience of nearby restaurants for the rest. Clean, comfortable and convenient - - a great stay.

Location is PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed in a rental house in downtown Whitefish. We loved staying at The Manse, and found the house to be great for our Thanksgiving stay. We had originally booked a smaller house, but the owners sold it and cancelled our reservation in late summer - so we ended up doing research and booking this house, even though it was a bit larger than we needed.

First, the location is perfect - you are walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. You are right downtown, but on a quiet street with plenty of parking. you are across the street from a bank, so the lights are on all night, but all the front facing windows have heavy curtains that make it a non-issue.

Second, the house is clean, well maintained, and nicely decorated/outfitted. It is plenty big for a good size group, but not too big for a small family. The backyard is great for pets, all fenced in and safe. The layout is great - cozy family room with fireplace and a nice separate dining room, with a nice sized kitchen. There was even a nice desk in the family room, which we found necessary since we had to work a few days while on our trip. The upstairs has three bedrooms that are all nice sized. The bed we used was comfortable - and quite large!

The only thing I would say is that if you plan to cook elaborate or gourmet meals, the house isn't equipped with many special tools or very many cooking supplies. You have your very basic pots & pans, mixing bowls, spatulas, cookie sheet, etc. It was enough to get by, but a bigger group or someone with high cooking standards might struggle. However, having a Keurig coffee maker is a nice touch, and you can just walk to dinner instead! If you like Italian food, you are steps away from Ciao Mambo - which we love.

I highly recommend this house for your stay in Whitefish, we were very pleased and would return!
