Jane's Place is located on a gently sloping acre, on the East shore of Flathead Lake in Northwestern Montana. The home overlooks Flathead Lake and the famous Flathead Cherry orchards. We are about 11 miles south of Bigfork.

Our property runs from Hyway 35 to the lake...it's a short walk down through the orchards, about a 3 to 5 minuet walk, it's a little longer of a walk on the way up!

Your beach has a 50' wooden dock and rustic concrete boat ramp, open for your use. 20' boat max. Guests with disabilities are welcome to drive right onto the beach. The beach is of the small rocky type. Beach chairs, loungers, tables and umbrellas are available for your use. Campfires at the beach are allowed most times of the year, please inquire. No RV's.

Our driveway is shared with our neighbors to the north.

Jane's Place is comfortable and set up with the basics, and then some. The kitchen is simple and clean. It comes fully equipped with cookware, dishes, glassware, stemware, plenty of silverware, cooking utensils and more, just ask!! Also provided are basic spices, fresh coffee beans, a grinder & tea. The stove is electric, the fridge is a new large stainless GE model & the dishwasher is of the "old school" roll out style with a large butcher block top.

Sleeping Arrangements: There are 3 plus bedrooms.

On the main floor, there are two bedrooms, they are on the small side but they are comfortable, fresh and clean. #1. The Lake View room, has a new Serta queen bed with soft comfy sheets and pillows.#2. The Garden View room, also has a new Queen bed. This bedroom contains one of the 3 full bathrooms in the home. Both of these queen rooms are upstairs. Downstairs, you will find #3. the master bedroom, with the most wonderful king size bed on the planet, as well as another of the three full bathrooms in the home. The master opens onto the lower deck, (1 of 3 decks!) and hot tub.

The living room has one queen pull out (#4 bed) sleeper sofa and 1 new Queen bed lounge area that is made into a bed( bed#5). There is also another 'regular' sofa (leather) that a person could sleep on. We also have a trundle bed, sleeps 2,(beds 6 & 7) downstairs off the master and laundry rooms. This it is not 'officially' a separate bedroom. It has draperies dividing it off and is a great place for kids. It also stays nice and cool in the Summer months. We also have a single bed, (bed #8) outside, on the lower deck for outdoor sleeping during the warmer evenings.

Bathroom Arrangements: There are 3 full bathrooms. The 'master bath' is downstairs with a great walk in tiled shower and plenty of room. Bathroom #2 is in the Garden View room upstairs on the main floor. The Garden View has a shower IN the room. This bath also has a little separate room with W.C. and sink. Bathroom #3 is a full bath with shower & tub on the main floor, off the kitchen area. The two bathrooms upstairs are considered on the small side, but they are clean, fresh and serve their purpose.

The front deck off the kitchen has a large charcoal BBQ/smoker, charcoal & lighter fluid are provided. All bedding and towels are provided.

** PLEASE bring your own beach towels, house towels are not allowed on the beach.

PETS: Well behaved, potty trained adult NON-SHEDDING dogs are welcome at Jane's Place. No puppies. Pets MUST be pre-approved. 2 dog max. $10 per dod per night. Extra $200 refundable deposit.

We require a refundable deposit "fee". This is your security/damage deposit. It will be returned within 10 days of check out if there is no damage. Please see your rental agreement for specifics, it is clearly spelled out.

Check in is 4 p.m. or later. Check out is by 10 a.m. Early check in or later check out can sometimes be arranged, please check with us.

Flathead Lake is a FANTASTIC vacation destination, Jane's Place would love to share it with you!!

If you are looking for a place to 'PAR-TAY', this is not the rental for you. Please look elsewhere. We do not accept rentals from guests under the age of 26. Most people are here to enjoy family, the lake, the beauty this area affords and the ability to 'chill'. Loud, drunken parties and abusive language are not appreciated. We are sorry to report that we have stopped renting to bridal or bachelor parties unless you are "a friend of Bill's".

We do accept any RV's over 25 feet, that's even pushing it, we very limited turn around space.

During your stay I will be, at times, out and about to maintain the gardens and hot tub as needed. We have a large property which requires a lot of maintenance, so we hope you will understand this, but I do stay out of your hair and generally am not there. I do not live on the property.

Please remember we are located amongst the active cherry orchards of Flathead Lake. During the Summer months, June, July and August, the harvest is on and farming activities around the home are in full swing, farm machinery, pickers etc.

Jane's Place is listed through the Polson Montana Chamber of Commerce. Please email me with an "inquiry" rather than a "request to book" for special rates dependent on your length of stay.

Thank you for considering Jane's Place Montana on Flathead Lake for your vacation. I hope to hear from you soon!

Why Teresa Frankfurth chose Flathead Lake

I am blessed to live in one of the most beautiful spots on the planet, it's an honor to share my home and the beauty this area has to offer with my guests. Hosting guests is a pleasure I very much enjoy. Jane's Place on Flathead Lake does not consider itself 'fancy'. What we are is family run, clean, homey and very comfortable. ....at least that's what they tell me! We want you to feel at home and have most of the conveniences of home while enjoying the beauty of the Montana countryside and Flathead Lake.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful views from all 3 decks, Cozy beds, Hot Tub, short walk, about 4 mins. down to Flathead Lake with your own beach private dock and boat ramp. A little over an acre to play on, comfortable, not stuffy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our guest book ~ Sept. 4 - 7 2015..... Teresa, Thank you for the wonderful stay! As the weather wasn't great, we were so thankful to be staying in such a nice cozy place.

Lakeside property that makes you feel right at home

  • 5 of 5

This place is so special. Huge, immaculately clean, and right next to the lake with private dock and beach. Theresa baked a pumpkin nut bread and left it out for us.. upon arrival it smelled like fall, and all the desiguois trees leaves were turning while we were there. The views from the hot tub were out of this world. I recommend staying here anytime, not just summer. Thank you so much Theresa!!

Owner's Response: THANK YOU for the glowing review, yes, anytime is a fantastic time to stay at Jane's Place on Flathead Lake, but I need to correct one "fact", the house itself is not set directly "RIGHT next to the lake", it's set back on the property, a short walk, about 3 minuets down through the orchards.

Awesome Lake View House

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Lake House. The owner Teresa was a delight to work with and always answered my questions. The house is very clean and has everything you need during your stay. All the little extra things she provides her guest is so thoughtful. We hope to visit again some day. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Jane's Place is fantastic! The view of Flathead Lake from the decks are breathtaking. An array of flowers were blooming in the front flower beds and add a heavenly scent to enjoy while lounging on the porch. Just a short walk takes you to a stately dock that overlooks the lake and surrounding mountains. After a day on the lake it was immensely relaxing to soak in the hot tub, all while gazing at the magnificent views. The pups also enjoyed themselves, lounging in the sun and frolicking in the lake. Our introduction to the Flathead Valley could not have been better. The accommodations were tidy and very clean. Teresa was extremely friendly and a wonderful host. Our family will be back!

Owner's Response: Great thanks to the Arrants family! I'm extremely happy that after close to an entire month in our home you still felt like it is a place you'd come back to. I also appreciate the care you took of the house, especially considering the fact that 2 huge Great Danes were in residence as well. Good luck to you and Arrants Outdoors as you launch into your new adventures in Montana.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for a girls' weekend and would also be great for families.

While the house isn't on the lake it's a super short walk down to the private shore. The views were beautiful and there was plenty of space to accommodate a group. We enjoyed watching the sunset over the lake and having a fire in the fire pit.

The accommodations were clean and comfy. The only negative was the roll away dishwasher that had to be hooked up to the sink to operate. But hey, at least there was a dishwasher! Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, etc.

Theresa was great and was quick to respond to my questions even though she was away on vacation.

I will definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jamie!! ...and thanks for leaving the house in such great shape, and as for the dishwasher situation, I know, it's not the best setup. Every year we consider this configuration and decide against moving it as we don't want to lose cupboard space and now, with the new tile countertop next to it......it probably won't happen for awhile. Also, I don't know if you are aware, but we do offer a 10% discount on a week stay to our returning guests at the lake house and the 5th night free after 4 nights booked at our Hot Springs Mt. get a way.......you have my number! We hope to see you again soon either at the lake or in Hot Springs. Happy Travels, Teresa

Great, quiet place with a stunning view

  • 4 of 5

We were surprised by the size of the place. It might not look like much (at least in the winter) when you arrive but you'll soon be quite pleasently surprised! There were so many thoughtful touches from the sheepskin rug to the fleece sheets and all of the personal care products you could want. We will definitely back. It was a perfect weekend! Thank you, Theresa.
