The PERFECT location on the mountain! Just minutes from town and right on the Home Again trail, our home is 100% ski-in/ski-out! 4 beautifully designed floors flow perfectly in the home. Each of the 3 spacious bedrooms are on their own floor and each has their own full bathroom. Enjoy spending snowy winters on the slopes, and sunny Montana summers on Whitefish lake or hiking and enjoying the incredible area just minutes from your doorstep including our Big mountain and Glacier National Park.

The space
All 5 star reviews on VRBO, our Whitefish Mountain home is just a 7 minute drive to downtown historic Whitefish - or a $10 taxi if you decide to let someone else do the driving.

This wonderful 2600 square foot townhome has been beautifully finished in authentic Montana Mountain decor, and features an open living space that includes a beautifully appointed kitchen where you can create your own meals or gather around the large kitchen island for cocktails or cocoa. There is a beautiful dining area centered around a live edge wood and iron table, or you can cozy-up around the fireplace in the great room that includes a deluxe entertainment system (Samsung TV, Chromecast, and Sonos Bluetooth stereo system) and the best entertainment of all - watching the snow fall while skiers and snowboarders pass right by your backyard on the Home Again run. In the summer and fall months you’ll enjoy the back deck which looks over the home again run where you can relax in comfortable outdoor furniture, cocktail in hand - and listen to the birds, the stream that rushes by across the trail, (or just the quiet of being on a mountain in Montana), and watch fellow adventurers enjoying the Home Again trail, or families of deer grazing on the grasses. A gas barbecue makes it easy to eat in.

Lovingly furnished and decorated with thoughtful details throughout. Spacious guest suites feature all new beds, pillowtop mattresses and wonderfully dreamy bedding. In the bathrooms, heated slate tile floors are a dreamy treat for cold, tired feet. Thirsty soft towels and bath rugs are provided, as are toiletries in all bathrooms.

The Upper floor Lockoff Master Suite has an amazingly comfortable King Size Bed, dressed in luxury cotton sateen sheeting as well as a truly luxurious hypoallergenic down-alternative fill duvet (and blankets in the winter), full dresser, and walk in closet. Here you have your own 60” HD SmartTV with Spectrum Cable. The Master Suite bath features a rainshower/steam room, a separate soaking tub, and dual sinks. The master suite (and all bedrooms) have their own private deck that offers a view of the Home Again run and a peakaboo view of the ski mountain, especially lovely when night skiing is open. In the summer, we have 2 rocking chairs out here for you to enjoy your morning cup of coffee or afternoon glass of bubbly.

Outside the master suite is a full loft with leather sofa and large sheepskin rug, perfect for quiet reading or possibly catching up on a little work. We have provided a wireless printer here for your convenience. The loft overlooks the great room and is always a bright and happy place, with 3 skylights above, and light streaming in from the mountain side windows.

The Queen Suite, on the 2nd and it's own private floor, is bright and inviting, with a new Queen Bed, full dresser and its own enormous walk in closet. The Queen Suite features a spacious bathroom generously outfitted with double sinks, its own soaking tub (this one is jetted), and separate room with standing shower and toilet. The sunny, south facing private deck overlooks the quiet neighborhood of Wood Run. On clear days you will be enchanted by the sweeping views of Great Northern and Glacier National Park. (This is my favorite place to catch some rays and maybe a little nap!)

The "Bear's Den" on the ground floor features an incredibly soft queen size bed, a full dresser and closet. Full bath includes a beautifully tiled shower and heated floors.

The Great Room is pretty great.
Starting with the Kitchen. The kitchen is seriously equipped for entertaining, and gourmet meal prep. Here are just a few of the deluxe bits we’ve stocked for you:
- A Breville warm milk frother will turn your morning coffee and a foamy treat, and will make real chocolate flake hot cocoa (We’ve stocked Williams Sonoma cocoa for you!)
- An OXO spiralizer so you can prepare healthy zoodles and other spiralized veggie treats
- Pie baking essentials, and cookie sheets/press
- Mini Cuisinart food processor
- 10 cup Cuisinart coffee part with single cup Keurig option - coffee and k-cups provided
- 4 slice toaster
- Blender, mixer, hot water maker and more
- Condiments in the refrigerator - ketchup, mustard, mayo, Tabasco and more
- spices, sugar, flour, olive oil, sea salt, pepper grinder, baking and cooking necessities. This is one full cupboard - I’ve tried to stock all of the items we need when we cook, and we cook a lot. Hopefully I have what you need (I have a photo of this cupboard - let me know if you plan to shop on the way in, and I’ll send you a pic so you can determine if you need anything else.)

The dining room has a raw edge table and 8 chairs. In the hutch you will find everything from placemats and cloth napkins to serving pieces and cocktail bar essentials including bar tools and just the right glass for your favorite concoction - wine, martini, champagne and more. We’ve provide a bottle or few of wine - red, white, rose in the summer and bubbles at the holidays. We also provide a lovely little basket of “vacation snacks” know, M+M’s, Oreos, popcorn, cocoa, trail mix, brownie-in-a-cup mix and more. Things you may not eat at home, but on vacation? Well, why not!

The living room features an Old Hickory sofa, custom made for our space, as well as 2 beautiful chairs that once lived in the Yellowstone Old Faithful lodge. You will find special pieces in this room to help make you feel so comfortable that you never want to leave.
We have provided puzzles, games and a variety of books and magazines, some local, and some about dreamy adventures in travel and outdoor adventure.
We have a 70” Smart TV in this room with Spectrum cable and both a Chromecast as well as an HDMI cord and dongle for a Mac in case you have movies already downloaded that you want to watch.

Also on the ground floor is a cozy family room with 55" Samsung TV and Chromecast - a great place for the kids to watch movies or play games. If you request an additional bed, the sofa in this room opens into a wonderful queen size bed. We have a soft mattress as well as a mattress pad and the same luxury linens for this bed as all other bedrooms.

On the ground floor, the Laundry Room is equipped with full size front load washer and dryer. Iron/ironing board are available if you need them (though we can't imagine you will!). We’ve supplied you with laundry supplies so you don’t have to bring or buy your own.

Our favorite "surprise" on the ground floor is our own "ski locker" room. If you are a skier, you will absolutely love this room. Heated slate floors make getting ready for your day on the mountain a pleasant experience as well as help quickly dry your gear when you return. (Or our boot heaters will make sure that happens - no damp boots before a day on the slopes!). 8 ample locker spaces provide a place for hanging jackets, helmets and gloves, and pull out wire-mesh drawers keep all of your gear organized (and dry) in one place. Trust me, you don’t know how much you need a ski equipment room until you have one - putting your boots on in the comfort of your own warm home (instead of in your car) is dreamy...taking them off inside at the end of the day is even better! (Oh, and did I mention that your ski locker is outside on the ground floor, steps from the HomeAgain ski trail - you will pull your skis out of the locker, place them along the side of the deck, step in, grab your poles and ski down to Chair 6! At the end of the day, you’ll take the HomeAgain run (well marked from Chair 1/Big Ravene and Chair 2 as well as other chairs), and after the 2nd bridge we are the 4th building on the right - you’ll be up on the deck again ready to store your skis, and head to the hot tub! - which is right there on said deck!

The REAL TREAT is your own private 8 person hot tub! This is apres-ski, TRAILSIDE style. At the end of your ski day, you can relax with apres ski "bevvies" in your private back deck hot tub and watch skiers go by on the final run of the day. This brand new hot tub is a Bullfrog spa, made by skiers for skiers. We have 5 different “jet” stations, including shoulders, lower back, full back and relaxing all over touch. Foot jets and wrist/arm jets are deluxe too. We’ve provided a mini-Bose player that you can Bluetooth connect to your mobile device and listen to tunes while soaking in your hot tub. Our concierge team will keep the tub clean and fresh for your stay. If you ever need additional service, just let us know!

We've tried to think of everything you could possibly need for an all season mountain vacation of your dreams. We LOVE it here, and want you to love it too. If there's anything we missed, we want your feedback! And we'll do whatever we can to help make your vacation perfect. Just let us know!

(If you have little ones and would like to have them stay with you in the loft area, just let me know. We are happy to work with you on the maximum occupancy rule).

My husband and I love to travel and explore the world. Our two grown children often join us on our travels, whether that's at our cabin/home near Lake Cle Elum and Roslyn in WA state, at our "on the mountain" home on Whitefish Mountain, or on an adventure skiing, sunning, wine tasting, or exploring. We find that escape time is a great time to reconnect and stay close. When we aren’t playing, my husband and I both live and work "from home" supporting his construction/demolition company. I’d worked at Nordstrom for over 37 years, and in March of 2022, decided it was time to embrace more of white life had to offer - we're doing this now, and enjoying every minute of it!
