We want you to have the best vacation experience ever and look forward to your stay.

What makes this house unique

We designed our home to accommodate large groups. We carefully thought through the look and feel we wanted it to have as well as the flow of the home. We understand that having nice furnishings and linens makes a home feel inviting, comfortable and clean.

The community is full of homeowners who take pride in their homes and who embrace all the community has to offer. There is an on site restaurant, tennis court, volley ball court, nearby play area for the kids and a clubhouse for your enjoyment, plus an amazing 18 hole golf course to play!

You can sit on the front porch and watch the sun set or enjoy the bbq and picnic area in back overlooking open space with trees and mountains. The 6th Fairway is adjacent to the back yard.

As our guest, you are welcome to enjoy the amenities of private access to Flathead Lake to swim, paddle board, kayak and picnic/BBQ.

We can offer you shuttle service to Whitefish Mountain during ski season and access to a private lodge area on the mountain to warm yourself after a few ski runs down the mountain.

The home backs up to the 6th Fairway and the practice putting green is located next door. Meadow Lake Golf Course is the Flathead Valley's leading 18-hole championship golf course. At par 72, meadow lake golf course was rated by golf digest as a 4-1/2 star course and one of the best 4 public play golf courses in Montana. Golf magazine says Meadow Lake Golf Course is a 'must play' course.

Loved It - it was absolutely perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful experience working with Melinda and we were very fortunate to be able to vacation in their home. The house was very comfy and beautifully decorated. We loved it. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone planning to visit this area. We had 13 in our group and there was plenty of room for everyone. Hoping to come back again some day and we will stay here again. Thank you Melinda and Chris.
