Dreaming Bear Lodge, located at 832 Cantrell Court in beautiful Whitefish, Montana, is available for sale – $1,199,000. Private, spacious, luxurious living with awe-inspiring views… 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 4523 sq. ft., on nearly an acre in prestigious Northwoods, adjacent to thousands of acres of wooded, protected open space… it’s all waiting for you.
This luxurious private estate was completely remodeled in 2019, with more than $150,000 of improvements, including a new 50-year roof, new heating boiler/furnace, and complete bathroom remodels. This beautiful home features high end finishes, concrete kitchen countertops, solid master hand crafted wood interior doors, radiant heated floors, high end windows, and upgrades throughout the home. Located 4 miles north of downtown Whitefish and just 5 miles from the ski resort of Whitefish Mountain, Dreaming Bear Lodge is a dream come true.
Dreaming Bear Lodge has the PERFECT location in Northwestern Montana’s Glacier Country. Summer days are spent hiking from the house on miles of trails connecting to the Whitefish Trail system, horseback riding at an area ranch, exploring nearby Glacier National Park just 20 miles away, whitewater rafting, or taking a refreshing dip in Whitefish Lake, less than 3 miles away. Ziplining and racing on the Alpine Slide are also available a few miles away on Whitefish Mountain. During the winter months Montana is simply magical, as you’ll literally step into a Currier and Ives postcard. After sledding, skiing, snowshoeing or sleigh riding, you’ll be warm and toasty with the glow of the fireplace and from the radiant heated floors throughout the lodge. Nothing beats watching the falling snow melt as it hits the steam, while soaking in the hot tub as the jets melt away the last remnants of stress.
In every season, this home is blessed with an abundance of wildlife. White tail deer, elk, and even the occasional bear and moose visit Dreaming Bear Lodge. Fall asleep to the singing of the coyotes and wake to the song of the birds.
Dreaming Bear Lodge is available for sale at $1,199,000. As the Owners are building a new home, the preferred closing date is fall of 2020, or we’d like to talk about a lease back from new owner. Should you need your new home sooner, that’s okay too, we can be out in 60 days. The home can be left completely furnished too!
