Lakefront Getaway with Dock, 400 Square-Foot Deck, Close to Town

Get ready to live the lake life at this Bigfork vacation home. Right on the lake and offering a dock for your boat, 400 square-foot deck, two-car garage and room for four, this Montana vacation home will be your new favorite getaway year after year.

Gather on the large deck, complete with a gas grill, firepit, and amazing view of Flathead Lake. Relax on the swing. If you have canoes or a large boat, you'll have your own dock to launch them from for an afternoon on the crystal clear blue water. Inside the home, you'll find gorgeous hardwood floors and a comfortable, laid-back style. A welcoming living room features a satellite-equipped TV for when you want to unwind. Of course, the view from the living room is unbeatable, so you may not even notice the television. The well-equipped kitchen helps you save a little money on dinners out with all the appliances you need to fix a meal. Have a quick bite at the breakfast bar or sit down at the six-seat table. The table is big enough to spread out an epic board game, too! Your family will feel cozy staying here. A queen-size log bed sits beside a window in the bedroom, while the sleeper sofa works well for a couple or two children. One-and-a-half bathrooms add to the convenience. An in-home washer and dryer plus WiFi top everything off, for a completely comfortable home away from home.

Being on the lake, you could even boat out to Wild Horse Island and dock for a hike. In addition to lake adventures, Glacier National Park is just about 45 miles away for a remarkable experience in one of the country's most uniquely beautiful reserves. About the same distance away is Whitefish Mountain Resort, where you can ski and snowboard during winter before warming up with hot cocoa at your lakefront escape. Experience Montana like never before when you stay at Wheeler's Flathead Lakehouse!

House was very comfortable and excellent scenery on the lake.
We enjoyed the home.
Only problem we had is there was no hot water for almost 4 days. We called maintenance and they were quick to respond. Water heater element was apparently faulty.
Next day, a Sunday, no hot water again, and TV locked us out. Maintenance was quick to respond. Fixed both the hot water and TV.

This is my first return to the lake since being a little kid and my wife’s first time ever. We wanted something outside of town and right on the lake. This place exceeded our expectations by providing exceptional views, privacy, and all the amenities we were looking for and our vacation. Everything was just perfect. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip back to the lake. Thank you to the owners for providing this opportunity and allowing us to stay in your home.
Adam K. Jul 2022
We had a great stay at the Wheeler lake house. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The views from this place are spectacular. There is a lot of thing to do and see around Flathead lake also. We would definitely stay there again.
Katharine K. Sep 2021
We loved staying here- it was the perfect, relaxing location to end our honeymoon in Montana. After spending a lot of time in the car/hiking/exploring Glacier and up near Whitefish, it was so nice to just relax on the comfy couches in front of the TV, grill out, and take in the sunset over the lake on the deck. (The view is incredible- the hazy pictures don’t do it justice!) We did a fishing charter and grilled up some Lake trout we caught and it was amazing. The space is nicely decorated and comfortable, and having a washer/dryer so we didn’t fly home with a suitcase of dirty laundry was nice. Would consider staying here if we were in the area again.
Linda F. Aug 2021
The view was the best thing about this place. The stairs getting to the living area are steep and are not mentioned in the listing!!
Manager response:
Hello Linda,We make every effort to present clear, accurate descriptions of our homes in order for guests to make informed decisions on their rental choices. We encourage guests to reach out with any questions or concerns prior to booking, as we are happy to help. We look forward to hosting you again soon!

...for guests who are younger or who don't have disabilities. Beautifully appointed cabin with a wonderful deck and stunning views of Flathead Lake. Only 4 stars, however because the descriptor doesn't specify that the only access to the living quarters is via a very long and steep set of stairs. Additionally, the half bath and washer/dryer are only accessible via the long, steep interior staircase down into the garage. Older people or people with physical disabilities would find this setup untenable and this information should definitely be included in the website descriptor.
Manager response:
Andrea, thank you for choosing to stay with us. We appreciate your valuable suggestions to improve our service and the accuracy of our listing. We have reached out to the appropriate teams to update our property description. We look forward to hosting you again!
Jesse A. Aug 2021
This cozy cabin was great for our small family of three (2 adults and 1 child). We were thrilled with the accommodations and how well the cabin was supplied for our Montana adventure. With close proximity to Glacier, Whitefish and of course an amazing waterfront view and dock on Flathead lake, we could not have been happier. We would book this cabin again in a heartbeat. We are already looking forward to our next Montana adventure!
Steve D. Jul 2021
We had a great time at the lake house.
Arkady S. Jun 2021
The view and lake access made for a picturesque sight to wake up to. Conveniently located near downtown Bigfork and some of the waterfront restaurants. Would recommend!
Keri B. Jun 2021
Was so excited to find this place! The lake views were amazing and the stay was peaceful. Close enough to everything you needed but far enough to enjoy the quiet beauty of Montana.
Maureen M. May 2021
This house was so cute and cozy! We loved the views, the deck is amazing, and lived all the amenities here! I would say the pictures really don’t do this place justice!
Barbara H. May 2021
Location was as described, very private. Hubster and I had a good time.
Whitney D. Apr 2021
Peaceful, unbelievable views in a great community.
Sarah B. Oct 2020
We absolutely loved this house. We stayed there for two weeks for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. Beautiful views of the lake and mountain, easy drive to get places, and such a cozy little house. We will come back for sure!
Linda G. Sep 2020
The deck and the dock really made this place special.
Maggie A. Sep 2020
Had everything we needed and was in a great location. The lake is beautiful and the home was very clean.
Isaac F. Sep 2020
We stayed at the house for our honeymoon and had an amazing time. The house is nestled toward the end of a long wooded driveway and has such a homey feel and a gorgeous view. The location was perfect for trips into the Flathead National Forest, Glacier National Park, and other surrounding attractions. The large porch overlooking the lake gave us plenty of space to grill out and enjoy the lake. The neighbors were also very friendly and helpful, especially Brenda. It was so convenient being able to prepare meals in the kitchen with a view of the lake. Laundry amenities were also a save on our 10-day stay. We highly recommend wine tasting at the Wood Bay Winery, dinner at Tamarack Brewing Company in Lakeside, and hiking Logan Pass and Grinnell in Glacier.
Byron R. Aug 2020
Nice view of lake. There was plenty of room for the two of us but would have been tight for 4. Many of the dishes were dirty. The appliances were dated.
Manager response:
Hi, Byron! Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We are happy to hear that this home had met many of your vacation needs. Our apologies that the dishes were not in better condition upon your arrival - we appreciate you making us aware of this oversight and will notify our staff to further address this. We value your feedback and hope to host you again soon!
Marcelle A. Aug 2020
We absolutely love the view and the lake access but the home itself was a disappointment. It needs maintenance big time...the gutters are overflowing, the deck needs to a deep clean and the dock needs repair.
Nathan B. Aug 2020
Beautiful views and very close to Bigfork.
Carter M. Jun 2020
Very nice little home, great views from the deck. Very clean!!
Melissa W. May 2020
My family and I stayed at the Wheeler’s cabin in May. We absolutely had a joyous time! The cabin was very comfortable and cozy with amazing views and all the amenities and necessities for a family including internet and HBO. I enjoyed waking up to Flathead Lake with a morning cup of coffee. The sunsets were amazing. We had a blast kayaking on the lake from the cabin’s boat dock and had many adventures including hiking, fishing and horseback riding within 30 miles of the cabin’s location. The Bigfork community is warm and friendly with just about anything available to be desired. I give this cabin 5 Stars!! Thank You Wheelers for opening up your Lake Cabin Home and letting us create Wonderful memories.

The property is located just up the shore from Woods Bay and biking distance to several restaurants right on the lake. The dock was a beautiful place to spend sunrise and sunsets but needs some repairs for safety (exposed screws sticking out in several places). The apartment above the garage was adequate but with no A/C it got pretty hot during the day which made it tough to sleep at night. Also, the pullout couch might be the least comfortable bed I’ve ever slept on. So much potential, but overall this place needs a little TLC.
Manager response:
We are happy that you enjoyed this beautiful property. This unit does not offer air conditioning as an amenity. Please call us to confirm your desired amenities. We hope to host you again soon!

This was the perfect spot for our birthday getaway. The view is phenomenal and the weather was great. I would wait until later in the year next time, though. The water was a bit low.
Sara C. Oct 2018
The view was breathtaking the home was accommodating and the all around functionality of the space was perfect for our little family! Thank you so much
Diane J. Oct 2018
House is super clean and cozy ..
Felt like HOME ❤️
Shopped at local grocery store.
Would LOVE to stay there again !
Molly J. Sep 2018
Beautiful view and comfortable home. We loved swimming off the dock. The home is located close enough to run into Bigfork for dinner.
Laura b. Aug 2018
Nice little one bedroom apartment. No issues for us but it does require climbing a long flight of stairs to access the apartment. Check in was easy and the unit was very clean. The dock was fabulous. However there is no beach it is smooth rock that drops off pretty rapidly so I would not recommend it for small children who want to wade.
Antonietta S. Jul 2018
Very nice home; quiet and had everything we needed for a lovely relaxing getaway.
jody g. Jul 2018
The view is great and the cabin very clean. But the path to the beach is in need of repair. Its very small,steep and dangerous. The new neighbor in a trailer is pulling water and power from the cabin so a cord and hose stretch across the property.There is an ant problem so needs help there. 3 cheap chairs on the deck and a picnic table are a joke.The property looks like the owner doesn't care and has had no upgrades. For the price I would rent another property.
JEFFREY S. Jul 2018
The Wheeler's built a simple home with a loft feel above the two car garage. The view of Flathead lake is soothing, the dock meets the need of a place to launch kayak's or canoes from, and the washer/dryer in the garage is very helpful for wet and dirty hiking and water sports clothes.
Joshua M. May 2018
Great Lake views from the deck! Sunsets are really awesome. Hard to beat it!
Cole S. Apr 2018
Perfect weekend getaway. Very quite and peaceful.
Rachel G. Nov 2017
The home is so nice and clean...beautiful location.
Dennis O. Jul 2017
We have used VRBO numerous times during our travels. Most often we try to find river front and/or lakefront cabins for the two of us. And, we often are last minute "shoppers" looking for a property. The Wheeler Lakefront Home was everything that we could have hoped for on Flathead Lake. The home is an easy drive just south of Bigfork, and the gravel drive to the home was easy to drive down the gradual hill from the highway. The drive was a dead end road, which helped with the quietness and private setting of the home. The home was beautifully furnished with a very modern and updated and maintained bathroom, kitchen, living/dining room, and balcony overlooking the lake. I especially enjoyed the woodsy setting with many pine trees on the property, and, since I enjoy woodworking as a hobby, the light oak interior and solid oak floors of the home were extra special. The dock was just an easy, short walk from the home. One morning when I was having coffee on the balcony, I was watching a dozen or so canadian geese swim around the dock and come up and graze on some of the natural grass between the home and the lake. Just amazing!
Jodi S. Jun 2017
We are a family of 3 and enjoyed this house and its location very much. It has a wonderful deck to overlook the lake and a private dock with great views and access to the water. It was also in a quiet neighborhood and seemed very safe. We will definitely stay here again.
Natasha S. May 2017
Celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary in Montana. This was our first visit to Montana and it was wonderful. The area is beautiful and so relaxing. Completed our first Spartan Beast as well. Made lots of memories while visiting Glacier National Park and going to the lookout. Thank you for this experience. We will see you soon. God Bless!
