About the property

Log home, sleeps 14-26**, 50 private lakefront acres

This custom built log home is the perfect getaway. It is paradise in every season!! Enjoy the mountain air, and lake and mountain views, or watch the stars while you relax in the hot tub or sit by the campfire on the spacious patio.

There is a feeling of being a million miles away, while the friendly towns of Kalispell, Bigfork and Whitefish are all within an hour's drive.

Home is spacious yet still warm and cozy feeling, much like a private lodge. Rock fireplaces grace both the great room and family room, and the entire home surrounds you in a feeling of luxury.

**Starting 2019: The entire boathouse is now available for additional private space! Beautifully furnished, sleeps 6, right on the water's edge.

There are so many ways to relax here-enjoy the warm furnishings, roast marshmallows over the campfire, swim, boat, kayak, paddle board, cross country ski, snowshoe, ice fish, hike, soak in the hot tub or sauna..the possibilities are endless.

The best part of all: NO HIDDEN FEES OR EXTRA CHARGES! It's all included.

*NOTE: When booking, the new boathouse (club) fee is added in, and I need to manually remove from quote. *

Our family of 13 traveled from Texas and Missouri to celebrate my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. We pride ourselves in Texas on our hospitality, but we’ve got nothing on Kelly and Tom! We were welcomed the moment we arrived and were treated like family. Kelly even had a gorgeous flower arrangement and gift basket in honor of my in-laws. The house is huge, beautiful and located on the crystal clear, aquamarine Ashley Lake. Everyone enjoyed our stay, from the honorees to the adults, teenagers and kids. Even though it was chilly, the kids could not get enough of the lake. There is something for everyone—kayaks, paddle boards, boat rides, etc... spending time on the lake was the highlight of our trip! We would see eagles soaring over us daily. We also saw deer, turkeys, and elk on our drive to the cabin from town. Tom could not have been more helpful or gracious and was available with a smile if we needed anything. My in laws loved our time there so much, they’ve already booked for our family to go back next year!

Remarkable and stunning!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely amazing! The location is superb, right on the most beautiful turquoise lake we have ever seen! The house is just spectacular and has everything you could ever need! There were lots of water toys that we weren’t able to use because the water was still too cold but the boats were very nice. We loved the hot tub and the fire pit! We had a large fire and made s’mores every night! Having the vehicle to use was so nice! We had a large group of 14, 8 adults and 6 children. We drove the van to Glacier one day and also to a nearby ranch. Otherwise, we would’be had to rent 3 vehicles rather than 1 so this was an added bonus! Also, we really enjoyed meeting and talking with Tom. I felt that he really enjoyed seeing and talking with our children ages 14 months to 9 years. Just can’t say enough about this beautiful home and our wonderful “out West” family vacation!

The Ashley Lake Estate is a breathtaking property with all of the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay at Ashley Lake Estate! This property has it all...expansive home with beautiful details, a turquoise, crystal clear lake, boats, water toys of every kind, hot tub, water trampoline, high-end kitchen amenities, impressive bedroom suites, and plenty of space for large groups to spread out or gather. Another highlight of this home was the opportunity to work with Kelly and Tom. As a property manager, Kelly, was prompt, informative, and a pleasure to work with. Over the course of our year-long planning, she was always there to answer any questions and went above and beyond in terms of customer service. Also, it was so nice to have Tom on-site as the caretaker. He was up early every morning making sure the grounds were pristine and everything was ready for us for the day. He was a wealth of knowledge for us on the area, the lake, and the wildlife...we enjoyed talking with him. Kelly and Tom both enhanced this experience for us with their personalities; we feel fortunate to have met them. The location of the home was also a positive for us. It was remote enough that we had privacy, yet close enough that we drove two days into Whitefish and two days into Glacier National Park. Our group of 12 all agreed that we would come back to Ashley Lake Estate in a heartbeat and hope to do it soon...there is no need to look anywhere else; this place has it all!

This place is awesome! Like another reviewer mentions, we had booked this spot nearly a year in advance, and I worried that I had too high of hopes. But once we got there it totally exceeded my expectations. Beautiful lake, beautiful house, everything is top-notch. Comfortable beds/pillows/linens, great kitchen, great amount of seating for our group of kids and adults (15 total), wonderful patio with hot tub, grill, meat smoker. The lake boating equipment (paddle boards, kayaks, speed boat, fishing boat, tubes, skis) were all excellent, and the lake itself is as clear and blue-green as the Caribbean. We caught enough fish in one outing to feed our entire group one night. We left for a day to go to Glacier Natl Park, but didn't need to; there was more than enough for us to do at Ashley Lake. Furthermore, both Kelly and Tom are wonderful and so accommodating--by far the best VRBO hosts I've ever dealt with. This property is AMAZING.

Incredible lake front home

  • 5 of 5

Just like many of the other reviews, the house is perfect! The pictures don't do it just. We have rented homes around the world and this is one of the best. Kelly and Tom are fantastic and they are there to make your vacation hassle free. There is so much to do that we only left the house once for a half day fishing trip.

If I had any quibbles, it would be that the kitchen is a bit small to cook for 20. And food storage for 20 is challenging as we brought almost everything for the week. These are very minor things and we plan to go back next year!
