Flathead Valley Montana Mountain Lake Retreat. Hunting Fishing Birdin

Bedrooms 2
Property type house


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This amazing mountain retreat is available all year long. Spend Thanksgiving or Christmas in a winter retreat or rent it for a summer vacation you will never forget! Ashley Lake is a very private mountain lake with incredible blue color due to its clay bottom. Huge trout and salmon inhabit its deep waters. Elk, moose, wolves, and deer are all found in this area. This quiet lake is the perfect spot for a family vacation, romantic getaway, or adventurous trip to Montana. Pet's love a vacation here as well.

The cabin has a large master suite with a king-sized bed with views overlooking the lake and its own full bathroom. An additional bath with a shower is located on the main floor. The entire group can eat around the large dining table. Couch with a hide-a-bed is perfect for afternoon naps after a long hike in the mountains. Twin sized bed off of the living area is perfect for kids.

Downstairs with its own entrance is another bedroom, with connecting full bath, full-sized bed, and washer and dryer.

The deck with its amazing views is equipped with a outdoor table and barbecue. You will want to eat our here every night and enjoy the loons song and sunsets.

Enjoy incredible sunsets off the large deck. The master bedroom has glass doors which allow you to wake up to the lake views. In the evening roast marshmallows beside a large campfire or enjoy a glass of wine on the deck listening to the loons.

Ashley lake is only 12 miles west of Kalispell. A quiet lake with very few boats on it. You feel like you have it all to yourself yet restaurants, shopping, Glacier National Park, Flathead lake, Kalispell, and many other activities are only a short drive away. If you are looking for some peace and quiet in a very scenic mountain getaway than this is the place for you.

If you love to golf then get ready! Golf Digest named the Flathead valley a top 50 golf course destination. With nine championship courses all within a 45-minute drive.

The cabin is only a 45-minute drive from Glacier International Airport and an hour from Glacier National Park, Big Mountain Ski Resort, Black Tail Ski Resort, Flathead Lake, and Big Fork. It would take an entire summer for you to experience all that the Flathead valley has to offer!

Boat rentals and jet ski rentals are available in Kalispell. There is public launch site on Ashley Lake. For more information, please call us.

A vacation at the Ashley Lake Hideaway will be your best vacation ever!

About Kiersten and Jack Alton

We are montana natives who purchased this property as an investment while we were living in Texas. We are now living back in our hometown of Kalispell, Montana.

Kiersten and Jack Alton purchased this house in 2002

Why Kiersten and Jack Alton chose Kalispell

We have spent a lot of time on this lake and own a family cabin across from our rental. This lake is the perfect place for us to get away and relax with our children. Fishing, hunting and boating are all activities we love to do and can all be done while staying at Ashley Lake.

What makes this house unique

The peace and quiet. Watching and listening to the loons and other wildlife. Fishing is great! There are very few boats on this lake so you usually feel like you have it all to yourself. This lake is only one of several in Montana that have the unique and beautiful Loons on it plus lots of other wonderful wildlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the great time at the Ashley Lake. We loved canoeing around the lake, jumping off the dock and fishing. A little squirrel ran up and down the tree every morning. Thank you, Niamh age 12

Property was in a beautiful setting. House worked well for our family.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the property, lake and views. It as very nice and fit our family well. We did go into town and to the park almost every day and had two vehicles for our family each time. The distance of the winding dusty roads each day when the shadows would cause the road to disapear with the dust at times got old fast. But we did enjoy the property. Had a great time.

Jackson Cabin a MUST for Montana Vacations!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the cabin having flown into the Glacier National Airport and experienced the haze of smoke from so many wildfires still raging. The directions provided were spot on and we saw so many deer enroute to the cabin, we were amazed; does with twin fawns, 2 sets! The Jackson Cabin and Ashley Lake were just beautiful. We took stock upon arrival and went into Kalispell for groceries, on the way back again on the road to the cabin, we saw a black bear and again lots of deer and wild turkey (in a flock, not a bottle)!

Our purpose for this vacation was to visit Glacier National Park, and while the park is indeed beautiful and we saw a grizzly bear (at a distance) we did not see any moose, elk, goats or bighorn sheep. We actually saw more wildlife on the road to and from the cabin each day! Hungry Horse Dam and surrounding area is a must see, as well as Big Fork (city) - at Flathead Lake! White Fish is a great place to explore as well (city), Jewel Basin is a great place to hike and the scenery there is gorgeous, but the lake at the cabin with all her changing moods and colors is by far the best!

The Jacksons are very nice and could not be more accommodating! This is the place to stay for a Montana vacation! The only sounds you will hear are the loons calling in the morning, the gentle lapping of the lake waves onto shore and the whispering wind through the trees!

This is a place for reflection, peace and quiet and total relaxation!

A Restful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second use of a VRBO property and it exceeded ALL expectations! Get your groceries and head to this very peaceful, beautiful location for a perfect vacation! The cabin was clean and came with all the other necessities needed. It's a perfect location to explore Glacier National Park and Kalispell is only a short drive away. We loved the lake, fishing, wildlife and quiet (even on the weekend). Owners are very helpful and seemed accessible if needed. Can't wait to come back!!!

Owner's Response: We love having renters spend special occasions such as these guys, it was their honeymoon! Congratulations. Our cabin is very peaceful. Ashley lake is not a very busy lake so you can always count on seeing lots of wildlife and good old peace and quiet. There are several pairs of Loons on the lake and this year they were successful in raising at least one chick. These large birds are pretty rare and to have several nesting pairs is truly an honor!

Truly a beautiful place and very well appointed, we

were so cozy. My husband loved fishing off the pier

and it was amazing to see eagles flying over the

silent lake and to hear the wind in the trees. Do

your grocery shopping on the way and settle in. City

folks like ourselves should be aware of 1 thing,

though: without a 4-wheel drive vehicle, the last 7

miles to the cabin make it challenging to get in/out

of for casual trips into town or elsewhere in the
