About the property

2 Bedroom, 3 Bath With 9 Acres Of Wooded Mountain Views

My home is located on 9 acres of beautiful pristine ponderosa, tamarack and douglas fir trees perched on a hillside with great views from every direction. It is extremely private being the last residence on the road and there are no neighbors to be seen. The property is also conveniently located just 2 miles from the great little town of Lakeside which is right on Flathead lake and has some great restaurants, bars and shopping and a quick drive up to the ski resort. There is a fantastic view of Flathead lake from the hilltop on the property which is a fabulous picnic area and there are plenty of trails to hike and lots of land to explore for mushrooms or shed antlers.

Deer and turkeys are regular visitors and when the chickens are laying there are fresh eggs for breakfast! There are plenty of outdoor spaces to enjoy, such as the huge custom fire pit and the handmade round bbq picnic table that comfortably seats 10!!

About Scott Nagel

I am a retired Executive Chef and have lived in the Flathead Valley for over 20 years. I founded the Wasabi Sushi Bar in Whitefish, Montana in 1999 and sold it in 2008. I have always been in the service industry and service is my #1priority for my guests here at Bear Canyon. Before purchasing this property last year, I owned and ran the R&R Guest house at Lake Mary Ronan in Proctor. That VRBO listing had 30- 5 star reviews and I take pride in making sure that everything is as it should be for my guests to have a wonderful memorable vacation and many of my guests were return visitors. I grew up in Minnesota and have always loved the country. I love working in the woods and making my new property here an enjoyable adventure for all who stay here. I make sure that there is plenty of firewood for you to enjoy, plenty of games and activities on site for you, and will direct you to all the best restaurants and local attractions that you are interested in. It is my goal to make sure you have a fabulous time here and want to return to stay again. Bon Apetit...Scott

Why Scott Nagel chose Lakeside

This property is all on a hillside. The views are awesome and it super quiet and private. It is at the end of the road and you rarely hear any traffic except the occasional tractor or 4 wheeler. It is a very comfortable house, feeling like a home, not a rental.

What makes this guest house unique

The fire pit is a great place to hang out and have smores or hot dogs and the hilltop view picnic area is a calming escape to peace and quiet.

Wonderful rental and great location!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay in beautiful Montana! Scott was a great host and was there to welcome us when we arrived. The house was stocked with the basics and very clean. The location is tucked away nicely so you can appreciate nature yet still close to the lake. Overall it was not too far from Glacier National Park (we made several trips), Whitefish, Kalispell, and Wild Horse Island. The pictures were 100% accurate and we would absolutely recommend the rental and stay there again!

Excellent property, host. We and kids(dogs) loved it

  • 5 of 5

The house and property was excellent, Scott was a gracious host. We would have extended our visit if It hadn’t been booked out. Thank you so much Scott, your place is excellent and we quite enjoyed it. Stealing fresh eggs from the hens one morning was a fun and delicious treat.

Perfect Cabin for a Family in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Scott's cabin is in the woods near Lakeside, but with easy access to all of the best day trips that the Flathead Valley has to offer. We hiked in Glacier, rented a boat on Flathead Lake, explored Whitefish, Bigfork, and the wonderful nearby state parks during the days and then returned to the cabin to sit in the hot tub on the deck and watch the deer walk by. We also fully enjoyed a rain day playing games in the cabin. Scott is a gracious host with a comfortable, clean cabin that has all the amenities you need for a fun stay. The cabin is a great use of space with a cute upstairs loft, a main floor bedroom, and 2.5 bathrooms that made it really comfortable for a family that includes three growing teenagers! We have stayed in VRBOs in the area several times and would definitely stay here again.

Lovely Montana home near Flathead Lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I has a very lovey stay at this property with easy access to Glacier National Park. It deserves the 5 STAR rating. One of the best HomeAway properties we have stayed at. Here is what puts this one over the top: Owner Scott Nagel is a wonderful host. He was there to greet us when we arrived and show us the house and its amenities. During our stay he was very unobtrusive, but easily available if we had any issues (we didn't) or questions (we did, he has a wealth of information on the area including things to see and places to go). Scott maintains chickens on the property (but not roosters, so don't worry that you will be awakened at dawn) and we found fresh eggs in the kitchen on our arrival. I love to cook and the kitchen is well stocked, including sharp knives, an unheard of treat in vacation rentals. My husband and I also enjoyed sitting out on the back deck and the short hike on the property to the view of Flathead Lake.
