If you're looking for a dream lakeside getaway, it doesn't get much better than this three-story chalet with large double dock, two decks with spectacular lake views, and a lower-level entertainment room.
Located on the western shore of Flathead Lake, this home is just 18 miles south of the city of Kalispell with its many restaurants, galleries, and local shops, and 20 miles away from Bigfork. Whether you bring your own boat to this home or you rent one from several local marinas, Flathead Lake is the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi in the lower 48 states. Enjoy a variety of watersports, fish for trout and whitefish, hike the trails, or relax lakeside with a picnic lunch.
With gorgeous knotty wood floors, walls, and ceilings, this warm and very inviting home combines a rustic Montana aesthetic with all the modern conveniences of home.
Relax in the main living area with its high ceilings, unique, handcrafted furniture, native stone fireplace, and large windows offering incredible views across the deck outside. Alongside this space, there's a dining room with a table and six chairs where you can gather for family game nights or to enjoy delicious home-cooked meals prepared in the adjacent, full kitchen.
The centrally located kitchen is fully equipped with a variety of essential cookware, utensils, and appliances including a refrigerator, stove, microwave oven, coffeemaker, and the all-important dishwasher to help you keep this area spic 'n span during your stay. And thanks to the gas grill out on the deck, you can spice up your menus with a few fantastic barbecued treats!
Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom has a king-size bed, walk-in closet, spectacular views of the Mission and Swan Mountain ranges, and an en suite full bath. The second bedroom with a queen bed is found on the main floor and the third bedroom is downstairs with sliding door access to the lower deck and two twin beds. With three bedrooms, two baths, and a futon in the entertainment room, this home easily sleeps up to six guests.
For home entertainment options, WiFi is provided to let you post updates to social media or catch up on a little work if needed. There are two TVs in the home including a 65-inch flatscreen in the entertainment room, so you can keep up with your favorite shows, watch the local news, or program your own movie night with the help of the DVD player. And feel free to leave those bulky suitcases home thanks to the private washer/dryer on the main level.
Enjoy the views from the two well-appointed balconies or take a stroll down to the large dock with boat lift, perfect for your own boats or just relaxing lakeside with your fishing poles.
No visit to this region would be complete without a day trip to the one-million forested acres of Glacier National Park, only 50 miles away. Or take a boat ride over to Wild Horse Island off the western shore of Flathead Lake where you can hike the many trails and catch glimpses of bighorn sheep, mule deer, waterfowl, bald eagles, and even the occasional wild horses themselves, but don't forget your camera!
