Nestled within 2 forested and private acres, Scouts Forest Retreat is truly a unique, luxury mountain getaway experience unlike anything else on VRBO. It is also our home :-)
Located just 7 miles west of beautiful downtown Whitefish, 8 miles from Tally and Whitefish Lakes, 15 miles from Whitefish Mountain Resort and approx. 30 easy miles to the West entrance of Glacier National Park, nature and the great outdoors await you.
At over 1,700sf, this luxurious 3 bdrm, 2 1/2 bath contemporary custom home comes complete with a gourmet kitchen with brand new appliances, solid hickory kitchen cabinets with black granite countertops, an open floor plan with large dining room, radiant floor heating, and slate floor on lower level and in all bathrooms.
Downstairs, cozy up with a book, watch TV or play games in front of the fireplace (ours is electric - it's a great heat source with no fire hazards or mess to clean up after!). The brand new comfy living room sofa folds out into a queen sleeper (sleeps 2) and there is a nice 1/2 bath. Upstairs, you'll find 2 guest rooms (queen bed sleeps 2, adult twin bunks sleep 2) with adjacent full bath. A spacious master en suite with king bed rounds out the upstairs complete with solid slate shower and jacuzzi tub. Perfect for soaking and unwinding in! If you need to stay connected, you’ll have high-speed wireless internet throughout the house.
The house sleeps up to 8, so if you have a larger group, consider combining with our adjoining Luxury Loft (sleeps 4-6). For more details on that listing see VRBO Listing #660303.
PLEASE NOTE: While the adjoining loft has it's own separate entrance and rooftop deck, it is attached to the house and shares the laundry room space. The loft may be rented out to other guests during your stay and you may hear them from time to time using the laundry room and also enjoying their time at Scouts Forest. House guests have exclusive access to the entire back garden area and this is not shared with the loft space.
Nestled in a wooded wonderland, Scouts Forest truly is a nature lover's paradise. White tail deer, elk, wild turkeys and even an occasional bear or moose visit from time to time. Outside, relax with a glass of wine and enjoy star gazing from your own private, patio deck surrounded by giant rock cliffs and adjacent woods. Our neighborhood is quiet and serene with horse ranches and organic farms next door. If you're looking for a true retreat-style experience with quiet solitude and a wonderful spot to read, write or just relax, this is the place for you. (If you want to host lot's of loud parties, we're sorry, but this is probably not the best choice.)
Outdoor adventure awaits with an abundance of local activities to enjoy. Start with hiking or mountain biking on the trails nearby, dust off those chaps and go horseback riding at an area dude ranch just 5 miles up the road, explore the wonder of nearby Glacier National Park, go whitewater rafting, or take an exhilarating dip in Whitefish or Tally Lake. For the more adventurous, ride a Zip Line through the trees, race on the Alpine Slide or navigate the Aerial Adventure Park on Whitefish Mountain.
If you enjoy shopping, trendy restaurants, spas and a vibrant nightlife, downtown Whitefish is only a short 7 mile jaunt. We'll have a list of places for you to explore, as well as maps upon arrival.
We look forward to welcoming you to as our guests and to all that Montana has to offer!
