Overview

About the property

Lower condo, 3 Bedrooms 2 Bath, steps to slopes, sauna, wood-burning fireplace

Winter - A skier's dream--walk 150 yards to Lift 3 and ski home to your door of the chalet's 1400 sq ft lower condo. Relax for après ski while viewing the slopes from the comfort of your spacious living room in the warmth of a wood fire in the grand stone fireplace. Or you might want to unwind in the Swedish sauna beforehand.

Summer - A hiker/mountain biker's dream! Big Mountain is at your doorstep, and Glacier National Park a mere 33 miles away by car.

Dine at home preparing your own delicacies in a well-equipped kitchen or eat out at one of Montana's finest restaurants, a five-minute walk away. You are only a couple minute's walk from the village, if you need to shop for ski equipment or local gifts to take home.

In winter, you might want to board the free 'Snowbus' shuttle to explore the town of Whitefish, offering great restaurants, bars, theaters, and shopping.

Finally calling it a day, you will sleep in comfort in either the king-bed master bedroom, the cozy queen bedroom, or the twin-bedded room ensuring a good night's rest before hitting the slopes once again in the morning. There is a stackable washer/dryer in the entryway vestibule in case you need to do a load of laundry.

If you have a large group, please check out our upper condo, which also sleeps 6. It is property #335568.

About Cynthia

My husband and I are flatlanders from Nebraska, but have always loved to ski--mostly in Colorado. When we retired we set out to find the perfect ski mountain. We visited different slopes in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana.

Cynthia purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Cynthia chose Whitefish

Big Mountain caught our attention as we experienced excellent skiing with no lift lines, friendly folks, and the perfect chalet duplex right on the mountain.

We stay in the upstairs unit with our two hunting dogs, Stilton and Storm several weeks each season, renting it out when we are elsewhere along with the lower unit year-round.

What makes this chalet unique

We love sharing the experience of living in a private home on the mountain in walking distance to the village, the slopes and all the winter and summer activities. Come stay--you'll love it too!

Cannot get much closer to the slopes or to the village. Cozy house that you can relax in!

  • 4 of 5

Second time staying here. Perfect house for our family of five and two small dogs. Close to chair three and close to the village. Wood fireplace completes the winter cabin ambiance. Quiet and peaceful-yet not secluded. We are looking forward to many more family vacations here.

Quiet, beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

We wanted something a little out of the way of mainstream traffic, and this place was perfect. I'm sure during the winter, since it's right at the ski area, it may be a little busier, but it was great for us. It was nice to look out the window at the chair lifts (if you're thinking of coming to ski, this would be a perfect house). We are planning another trip up there, probably in the spring, and we are already planning to book this house again. There were four of us, and we had plenty of room. Everything was comfortable, and we like being able to have breakfast at home before leaving for the day. There was enough stuff in the kitchen for all of our needs. We truly enjoyed staying in this house.

Well Used Accomidations

  • 3 of 5

As the saying goes, "when handed lemons, make lemonade", this is what we had to do as we were not expecting such a well used, dated condo. My advice...spend a bit more and get fresh non smoking space with new carpet. A retreat that has all the shelves in the refrigerator. A grill that you feel comfortable cooking in. Locks that work as they should on all the doors. Screens on the windows for the summer months (it was 97 degrees with no AC but it's share of flies). This space was OK at best.

Owner's Response: We have replaced the grill with a brand new propane one and the refrigerator is no longer missing a shelf. There is no issue with security. We have just picked out new carpet and will be having it installed the next time we are in town. We have never allowed smoking and have never seen (or smelled) evidence of it.
