Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We wanted to share this beautiful property with others that have brought us so much joy over the years. My husband and son and I raised 17 sled dogs here and considered ourselves recreational mushers. Now the dogs are in heaven, our son graduated from college and we are semi-retired.

Why the Owner Chose Whitefish, MT, USA:
It is a perfect setting to recharge your batteries and leave the stress of the world behind. The seclusion, the wildlife, the scenery and all the recreational activities.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The property is so close to town but feels like it is in the wilderness.
