Unique lakefront home w/private dock & hot tub - gorgeous lake views!

If you're looking for a lakeside getaway with your friends and loved ones, consider staying at this incredible three-bedroom lakefront home. You'll enjoy a private hot tub, a cozy wood fireplace, and a private washer/dryer, in addition to stunning views of Flathead Lake, which can be accessed via a short trail or a quick, convenient backyard tram that takes you right down to the private dock!

Perched on a hillside on the lake's eastern shore, this secluded home is perfect for vacationers who want a break from the stresses of modern life. The town of Polson is a little more than 10 miles away, and Kalispell is 45 miles north. The rugged wilderness of Flathead National Forest is within just a few minutes' drive. If you want to relax in the waters of the lake, it's just a short walk along the trail from the deck to reach the shore.

The interior of this lovely home blends modern taste with rustic flair. High ceilings, exposed beams, and mountain-esque decor create a welcoming atmosphere. (Please note that this home does not include WiFi.)

Enter through the main door on the second floor to find yourself in a spacious entryway with a laundry room and a half-bath to your left. Head down the hall and turn right into the kitchen. Cooking is a breeze with the updated stainless steel appliances, and a dishwasher makes sure clean-up is over in no time.

There's room for six at the dining room table's bench-style seating, and a leaflet can be added to the table to make room for two more guests. There are also two barstools at the kitchen counter.

If you'd rather eat (or cook!) outside, step out to the back deck. A gas grill and patio furniture make this a prime spot for a barbecue - perhaps with some fresh-caught fish from the lake.

Head back inside and past the dining area to find a cozy living room. Relax on the leather sofa with a good book while you bask in the warmth of the wood fireplace on chilly nights.

Ready for bed? This three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom vacation rental can comfortably sleep up to 11 guests (eight adults). On the main floor, a spacious master bedroom includes a king-size bed, a flatscreen TV, a large en-suite bathroom, and direct access to the private outdoor hot tub. Upstairs, there's a large landing with a twin-size bed, one bedroom with a queen-size bed and a small balcony, and another bedroom with a set of full-size bunk beds. In the basement, a and queen-size bed provide additional sleeping options.

Without WiFi to distract you, this home is the perfect place to reconnect with your family and friends. Start your day with a leisurely brunch, then take the convenient backyard tram or walk down to the lake and your private dock. Go for a swim or take turns using the two provided stand-up paddleboards.

Spend a day hiking the gorgeous trails through Flathead National Forest, keeping your eyes out for indigenous flora and fauna. Afterward, rejuvenate tired muscles with a soak in your private hot tub. And if you need a day off, check out the shops and restaurants of Polson or Kalispell.

An unforgettable Flathead Lake getaway starts with this amazing vacation rental. Start planning your trip - book today!

A Beautiful Home in a Beautiful place but really needs a very good cleaning. Lots of dust and cobwebs. Almost every doorway had cobwebs and all light fixtures were dusty and full of cobwebs. A very thick layer of dust on all the ceiling fans made them unusable. Fire place hadn't been cleaned out and no way to clean it out to use it. Evidence of a mouse was found in the lower level bedroom and in the drawer of oven in the kitchen. All dishes had to be cleaned before use as lots of dried on food on plates and silverware. House hadn't been rented in awhile so it was extremely cold when we checked in and took all night to warm up, making the lower level bedroom miserable to sleep in. The hot tub also was turned way down so it couldn't be used our first night there and hadn't been cleaned out, lots of pine needles at the bottom. Walks hadn't been shoveled and no shovel available. Stairs were very icy making packing in and out difficult.

Lots of extra bedding and dishes and everything in good working condition. There were no window coverings on any of the windows leaving the bedrooms open to people outside.
Manager response:
Hi, Brooke! Thank you for letting us know about your stay with us. The property manager has addressed the cleanliness issues with our housekeeping team. The hot tub has been taken care of, and pest control has been scheduled. The windows you mention face the lake; no one can see in since the home is on a cliff. We hope to see you again!

Wonderful get away for a girls weekend! We enjoyed the dock, hot tub and the great roominess of the house. We each had our own space.

The home was beautiful and roomy. Plenty of towels and life jackets to enjoy our lake time. We loved the convenience of the tram, so handy when you have multiple items to take down and the kayaks/paddle boards we’re a blast. Only a couple disappointments being the dock area and decks needing a little TLC - Lots of tree debris and spider webs. The hot tub also had tree debris inside and had a large amount of foam when using the jets. Regardless, we definitely enjoyed our time here.

This home is the perfect spot to enjoy Flathead Lake. It’s located towards the south side of the lake so the water seems to be a bit warmer. It’s located in quiet Skidoo Bay so most the time it seems like you have the entire lake to yourself. The house is situated with the back overlooking the lake facing west so you get to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The dock area is perfect for enjoying your day on the lake swimming. The house is very inviting and comfortably furnished. It located close to Polson so you can easily run into town for Food and supplies. We did have a black bear come visit us near the dock but wasn’t threatening at all.

All in all this is a great place to experience the beauty of Flathead Lake.

We loved the tram down to the water! The boat lifts were amazing for our water toys. The hot tub was great to warm up in after waterskiing. The laundry room was perfect for washing all our beach towels. Gorgeous views.

Amazing house, spectacular views, and great service. Highly recommend.
Penny W. Aug 2019
It was a beautiful house with most amenities you could ask for. Wonderful dock to enjoy and a great lift to take you to and from dock. First day we were there the lift didn’t work but the had someone there to fix it next day! Beautiful sunsets from the deck. Only suggestions would be better beds and need a marker near the driveway with address. Had a wonderful time with our two grandsons.

Great view, love the trolley and hot tub!

This is a gorgeous property that has everything you need for a lake get away. The views are amazing. The house is well cared for and clean. Beds are comfortable. The house has all the equipment and supplies you need to feel at home. Don’t even think twice that this might be the house for your trip to the lake.

We loved the awesome lake views from all over the house and property, the tram down to the dock, the dock with the boat lift and all the water toys, the master bedroom, the fire pit and the hot tub.
James S. Jul 2018
This is the second year we have rented this house. It was an amazing place to have friends from all over join us for secluded getaway and enjoy another amazing Montana summer.
Francesca P. Sep 2017
The house way beautiful, the tram and lake front were fabulous. The living room furnishings were not comfortable, we spent most of the time in the kitchen and outside. This is a home for enjoying the beauty of Flathead but not for lounging.

Nicely appointed home with all the necessities for a wonderful vacation.
Trish B. Jul 2017
We stayed here 5 nights. A couple nights more family came and we were 11, which was a tight fit for sleeping quarters and bathrooms. Just a note on sleeping accommodations, the upstairs bedrooms - 1 queen, 1 twin, double bunk beds - all share 1 bathroom.

We brought our boat so we used the boat lift and dock every day. The tram down to the dock was neat! What a cool perk, not having to walk up and down to the dock.

The water was perfect for jumping off the dock and swimming. One of the days was a little windy and the water too rough for boating. The other 4 days were perfectly calm, the lake was glassy smooth and beautifully clear. We did a lot of boating and watersports. We appreciated the use of the 2 kayaks and 2 paddleboards.

The house was gorgeous and clean. There were lots of towels and extra bedding. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils but no spices, salt or pepper. Only 2 dishwasher tabs supplied.

The hot tub on the deck was perfect for the evenings.

Our family had a really great time at this lake house and I'm happy to rate it 5 stars.

We had a family of five. Great home for us all. Kids had bunk room had plenty of nice large beds. Great towels and bedding. Kitchen fully stocked. Had 2 SUP and 2 kayaks. The tram worked great. Two places to make outside fires and Smores with kids. Plenty of deck space on the water to relax. Hot tube with amazing views. Overall exceeded expectations ! Met the owner by chance. Thoughtful caring and considerate. Always nice to rent from good people!

This house is lovely. It is sturdy and can handle a large group.
The outdoor amenities are incredible. The view is to die for.
The house itself sits close to the highway, so there is some noise from vehicles.
We did not feel the beds were adequate for sleeping 11 people comfortably (4 of the 11 slept on hard futons in a strange basement style room). This would have been a bummer had we stayed longer than two nights. The couch and other seats in the home are also not comfortable; they are small and not great.
The kitchen is glorious in size, quality appliances and is well stocked with dishes, utensils, platters, pans etc. They did skimp on trash bags and dishwashing detergent.
Wonderful outdoor patio, table, chairs, hot tub, grill - all with an unreal view.
The tram is handy, but may need better maintenance.
If you have great weather, and can spend all your time on the dock/lake, you will not regret renting this house. The dock is one of the best I've seen on Flathead! It is huge, terraced and just perfect.
The bay is calm, sunny and the water is clear, clear, clear.
Overall a perfect place. But, for the price, the furnishings could improve.
Manager response:
We are happy to see this guest enjoyed their stay! The tram is maintained regularly to ensure it is in good working order. The tram service recently inspected it and found it to be in good working order. Thank you!
