About the property

3 Bedroom & 2 1/2 bath Condo on the river & centrally located to everything!


Our “River Retreat” is the most relaxing river property in Whitefish, Montana. It has a perfect location. Being located right on the Whitefish River, you are able to walk just 3 blocks to all of the shopping, restaurants, pubs, and the Amtrak train station. In the winter ski season are also able to pick up the SNOW bus just three block away. This quaint true “Four Season Resort Town” has many things to offer.. We have remodeled this 1750 square foot 3 level, two bedroom, 2 ½ bath, with a loft bedroom “Condo” on the river. Our home has all the amenities, including washer/dryer, large wall mounted 46' screen smart TV with cable & high speed Wi-Fi. The kitchen is upgraded with granite counter tops, stainless steel sink and a large open view. The dining room/living room overlooks the river, while the living room has leather furniture and a wood burning stove. Our property has 4 different decks (one faces east, one faces North, and two face the river to choose from where you can chill out, or cook your meals on the large deck w/ BBQ off the dining room. The newly remolded shower/bath and laundry room are located on the main level. As you work your way downstairs, you will experience a large master bath with heated floor and Jacuzzi tub for those tiring ski days. The very large master bedroom also has a couch with queen sized sofa sleeper. It is not until you open the double French doors upon deck, you realize your only feet from the beautiful and peaceful river! Travel back up past the main level and you will see both the second bedroom and the attached loft room with bathroom, large closet space and TV. The river retreat will comfortably sleep 5 adults, or 4 adults and up to 3 children when using the sofa sleeper.

Our property is located less than a mile from the famous Whitefish Lake Golf Club, an easy 15 minute drive to Whitefish Mountain (Big Mountain) for skiing, or a 30 minute drive to our nations “Gem”, Glacier National Park. Walk out the front, across the grassy field and take the awesome bike path along the river to Whitefish Lake and city beach for a day of fun! The “River Retreat” really makes for a great central location while visiting many fun adventures during the day in northwest Montana.

We have worked hard to make “Our home, Your home.” Come, bring your family and relax as much as possible, while you are on vacation here in Whitefish. Maybe grab our canoe for an adventure up river. Our home really makes for a great central location for just relaxing, or plan some great memories while visiting many fun adventures during your stay in northwest Montana.

About Scott and Leigh Ann

After first visiting Whitefish, Montana in the late 90’s, I knew this was the place to be! With a career in the airline industry, and traveling all over the world, I soon discovered there was no place like Northwest Montana, and I knew I had to buy a home here. We come as a family 3-4 times a year, and spend some very memorable times here in this home. From river rafting the Flathead River, and skiing Big Mountain and hiking in Glacier National Park, my children will have lifetime memories in which I am grateful. Every year during the off season, or when time permits, we constantly are upgrading our property. So come and enjoy as we do! Take with you some great memories………

Scott and Leigh Ann purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Scott and Leigh Ann chose Whitefish Lake Area

You see for yourself, but besides being the end unit of only 9 townhomes on the river, you will experience peace and quite, but you have the abliity to only walk several short blocks into town to the grocery store, Amtrak Depot, restaurants, pubs, shopping that is located throughout Central Ave.

What makes this townhome unique

As soon as you walk through the front door, you will feel at home. Lay by the wood stove in the winter or fall asleep out on the deck and be lazy on a summer afternoon.

***If you are traveling with more than one family or a group, our family has another property 4 units away!!! Makes for a perfect large family get together!!

Ultimate location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. Property was beautiful, location was the best...we're going to be forever spoiled. Can't check anymore boxes that we had. Owners were very accommodating, and we especially thought the family pictures throughout provided a very touching story about how well loved this area and house are! Will definitely seek out again if we're in the area.

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't be a better location. Very short walk to shops restaurants and bars. Property is very spacious and liked having access to bikes and canoes being right on the water. Exceeded expectations by far. The owners were wonderful to work with, very caring people. Unreservedly would recommend this property to anyone.

Great location on the river and a short walk to downtown Whitefish. The canoe was

great and its an easy paddle all the way into Whitefish Lake. Patio areas were nice.

There were some issues, the firepit didnt work, only on TV worked, the air conditioner

up stairstairs didnt work. Would still strongly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Hi Thomas, We are so sorry for the fire pit issue. We realized we had a faulty propane tank that we had just purchased and replaced it as quickly as we could after your stay. We have had no issues with the upstairs A/C and just used it while we were there for 2 weeks. We wish you would have called us so we could have walked you through getting it started. While we rarely have guests wanting more than one TV, we have just brought up a Firestick that will allow more than one TV to access the wifi and television channels if wanted. We are glad the majority of your stay was pleasant and we hope you will think of us if you are in Whitefish again. Scott and Leigh Ann
