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!

Great for families or for couples

  • 5 of 5

Took a week with our four kids (ages 14-27) and our corgi. Lovely, comfortable country cabin on several acres, just a few minutes out of the town of Lakeside.

Main floor had a mudroom, kitchen, dining room, living room, full bathroom, bedroom with two double beds and an en suite. Upstairs was a bedroom with two queens and an en suite. All beds and bedding were very comfy.

We love to cook and the kitchen was very well equipped and organized, with a BBQ we used every night, on a patio right outside the kitchen door. The beds and bedding were super comfy and the older hot tub was a perfect end to every day. Lots of laughs and memories made. :)

Chickens, fresh eggs, deer in the yard, many acres of land to explore, beautiful views.… quiet, dark and cool at night, just the way we like it. Awesome location just a few minutes from Lakeside. Out of the many places we considered near flathead lake, what made us choose this place over the others was the hot tub and the country location, making it easy to have our little dog. We weren’t disappointed. Totally felt like home.

Scott, who lives in a smaller cabin on the property, was available and friendly like a good neighbor, but gave us our space and made us feel at home. We ALL had a great time and would recommend Scott’s place to others looking for a similar experience.

The property was fantastic for kids and dogs to run and explore. The hot tub was clean & enjoyed!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Scott’s little corner of the world! The house was clean and very comfortable. The kitchen was perfectly set up for cooking it made us feel like professional chefs! Fresh eggs from the girls were a nice treat when we didn’t want to go out for breakfast at one of the many great restaurants (Echo lake Cafe is the best!). Beds were very comfy and bedding was good quality and soft. The hot tub was clean and so relaxing, it got lots of use from us!! The dogs were very welcomed and had so much fun running around exploring, playing with Jake and watching the girls (chickens) with much interest. It was the perfect base camp for our exploring of the Flathead Lake area. It was perfect for our family of 6 ( us, 2 teenagers & 2 dogs). Scott was a fantastic host and we loved it so much we didn’t want to leave!

Tranquil & Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Scott's cabin immensely. I was so very relaxing & a great way to unplug from the "busyness" of life! Scott was an excellent host & the house was furnished with everything you could want. We enjoyed our evening campfires & the close proximity to beautiful excursions when we wanted them. The hens were a fun treat & the deer we saw every morning from our windows just added to the serenity of the whole location. It was also very nice to be able to bring our Sheltie who got along great with Scott's Jake. We would highly recommend this venue for a family or group of friends. It has much to offer for all!! Thanks for your wonderful hospitality, Scott!

Deep woods peace of mind

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days and loved it. Scott, the owner is such a gracious and generous host who legitimately cares it was very refreshing. Scott's dog Jake was also quite caring and friendly too. As for the accommodations...we lacked nothing. Should we be in the Flathead Lake area again we'd definitely rent from Scott again.

Worth it!

  • 5 of 5

It is so nice to receive what you've been shown on line. This is the cabin for people who like privacy with communication if needed.....amenities when you forget what you should have friendly, chicken egg hatching, smore-toasting, home away from home without getting homesick....and MOST of all from my point of view....a place to GLAMP (glamorous camp) where camping in a comfortable home meets eye-to-eye with true campers...a great place for everyone involved!
