About the property

Waterfront home with 1 Bedroom, sleeping loft, guest cabin, and private dock

This newly constructed waterfront home and guest cabin is located on the Angel Island channel of Bull Lake, in Northwest Montana. We are located two and a half hours northeast of Spokane, WA, one hour east of Sandpoint, ID, and two hours west of Kalispell, MT.

With your own private dock, you have access from the channel to 5 mile long Bull Lake, which rests between the Cabinet Mountain Wilderness Area and the Scotchman peaks on the border of Montana and Idaho. The Channel is 50 foot wide and allows access from your private dock to the lake. Besides the unmatched scenery, the main lake is perfect for swimming, water skiing, kayaking, canoeing, and offers some of the best variety of fishing in Montana.

Hike the nearby Ross Creek Cedars and experience an old growth forest firsthand, or head up into the Cabinet Mountains where Alpine Lakes, glaciers and wildlife abound. 18 miles away the Kootenai Falls are a must see for everyone.

The nearby Yaak River and the Kootenai Falls are both destinations for milder site-seeing trips, or extreme whitewater Rafting & Kayaking.

As winter arrives we are only an hour from Schweitzer Mountain, near Sandpoint, ID, Two and a half hours from Whitefish Mountain, in Whitefish, MT, And just over an hour to Turner Mountain, near Libby, MT. There are numerous snowmobile trails in the area, including the Keeler, Spar Lake, and Spruce Lake Trails. Deep powder and wide open basins await at the end of the trails for the more advanced riders.

This newly constructed 1500 square foot home, is situated at the top of a large lawn, that gently slopes down to the Channel on Bull Lake. Beyond the channel is a view of Cabinet Mountains. The home includes 2 bedrooms, one of which is a very large loft that sleeps 6, and the other is the master bedroom. The Living Room has a sofa sleeper for 2. 3 bathrooms, one with a double vanity & Tub/Shower, 1 with a shower, & 1 Outdoors that is fully plumbed. A Living Room, Dining Area, and fully furnished Kitchen, open to a Cathedral Ceiling highlighted with logs and natural wood trim. A very large laundry room includes Washer, & Dryer. Off the Kitchen is a cedar deck with unmatched views and below is a covered patio surrounded by a wall of river rock.

About Marc and Debbie Zahner

Marc and Debbie Zahner work and have lived in the area for a long time. They built the house and cabin in 2012. They landscaped around the property and sloped the lawn with new trees, a fire pit and a private dock

Marc and Debbie Zahner purchased this house in 2012

Why Marc and Debbie Zahner chose Montana

We both have lived and worked in western Montana for Thirty years, so we know the people in the area and on the island and are familiar what the northwest has to offer vacationers for recreation, comfort and relazation.

What makes this house unique

We chose this property because of the access to the entire lake, the view of the beautiful Cabinet Mountains, and the northwest areas with its waterfalls, hiking, fishing and ski areas.

Waterfront cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is the third house in a row of three each with its own dock. Cannot beat the water access. There is a fire pit with tons of firewood and easy lighting, a grill on the deck which we used every day, and a fully equipped kitchen. The hosts were kind and provided us with much-needed baby gate and coffee. Unfortunately, there were mosquitoes. The hosts kindly provided bug spray as well but maybe we did not apply it as often as we should have. We would come here again when our baby is older - it was a tough house with a toddler with many items in low open areas plus stairs without doors, and outside she kept wondering into the neighboring yard (not factoring this into the rating and only mentioning it for other folks with little ones). This is a great place for active families wanting to get on the water.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I just wanted to add a note for those with small children that we have made a couple updates to the rental. We have put two portable baby gates in the house and installed a permanent gate at the top of the stairway on the outside deck.

This was one of the best vacations we have been on! Everything you can imagine was provided. The kids were outside all day on the water and playing in the huge yard. The views were amazing! We are definitely coming back next year!

Angel Island comfort

  • 5 of 5

Marc and Debbie Zahner have created the perfect vacation retreat on Bull Lake. All the comforts of home right where you'd expect them to be; plus all the lakefront toys and amenities you could want. Our only regret is that we didn't have time to fully enjoy all that they provided. We did, however, have a grand time watching and listening to all the birds that they attract to their adjoining yard. Wow!
