Featured Vacation RentalLazy J P Ranch
"We stayed here over New Years with our three 20 something adult children for a ski vacation. We booked last minute so there wasn't anything on the hill but we found we loved the quiet residential location only 3 blocks from downtown - the young adults could walk to nite life and we could relax by the fire. This is a large 3 bedroom upper floor condo with a view of the mountains and the trains whitefish is known for. High end finishing including a 6 burner Viking gas stove. Gourmet kitchen with sharp knives and everything you need for those who like to cook. No hot tub but the master bath has a deep jacuzzi tub. Roomy with high ceilings and nice finishing. There was a BBQ we used, 3 decks, washer, dryer. The rental company - five star - were fantastic. We would stay here again summer or winter, great value for what you get compared to what you pay on the hill. There is a free snow bus so older teens and young adults can get to and from the hill and town themselves if they have to and you can walk to great restaurants and back without worrying about having a glass of wine and diving - all in all awesome." - Tracey Fellowes, Calgary, AB

"The Jewel was perfect for celebrating my 60th birthday with my girlfriends, cousin, sister, and niece. We spent 8 nights there celebrating. We all had a comfortable place to sleep, and were all in the same house. We were able to prepare our meals there which included eggs benedict, smoothies, pork roast, etc. We couldn't have asked for a better location...we would easily go to Whitefish for the Christmas Stroll and play, to Kalispell for a quilting class, to the airport to pick up friends, to Costco for groceries, to All About Memories for card making. On the day we were going to venture to Glacier, we were so tired from running around, we decided to spend a down-day at the Jewel watching movies. The first three days it snowed a few inches every day, on the fourth day there was enough snow to make us concerned about getting out the long drive way, but while we were getting ready to go, the snow plow appeared and cleaned up the drive way for us, so we had no problems getting out. Prior to our stay at the Jewel, I sent many e-mails asking questions about the area and for recommendations, the staff

Prior to our stay at the Jewel, I sent many e-mails asking questions about the area and for recommendations, the staff at Five Star Rentals always replied quickly and with good ideas. We were always warm, cozy, and comfortable at the Jewel. We took tons of pictures and because there is internet access at the house, we were able to download our pictures to Costco, and pick them up on our next trip into Kalispell. The location could not have been better. Everything we needed was already there (except for a second coffee pot which I brought because my sister drinks a whole pot all by herself). My girlfriend from California is planning a return trip to the Jewel with her family in the summer. I could not have had a better 60th birthday, and the Jewel was the perfect place to celebrate it.
We’re getting ready to fly back to Illinois tomorrow morning and I just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how much we enjoyed the cabin (Loon Lookout). We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay and we are already talking about a return trip next year. Thank you for all your help in getting us booked – your office has been great to work with!

"What a wonderful holiday! Our whole family loved the place (La Casa), enjoyed the skiing and fell in love with Whitefish. What an adventure!"
Our first visit ever to Montana was so memorable. The Ambrose’s lovely riverfront property was the ideal location from which to explore the area. We were just minutes from whitewater rafting in Canada, horseback riding out of several different operations, and a day trip to Glacier National Park. The valley is just lovely and easy to get to. But the Ambrose’s property is really special. The main house sits high on the bluff above the Tobacco River with an amazing view of the river and valley beyond. The first morning we were there, a bald eagle was perched in the tree right outside the kitchen window. There is a short flagstone trail down to the river, where we waded extensively and could easily float in tubes down river. The house was appointed to beautifully. It comfortably slept all 8 of us in oversized, rustic beds piled high with down quilts. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The décor was so luxurious with dark, rich woodwork, multiple indoor and outdoor seating areas, including a patio with spectacular views of the river and the valley. The property is at the end of a long driveway down a very quiet road, so we were never disturbed by noise. The barn is picturesque in its traditional red and white trim, and is and well-appointed with all its furnishings too. We would not hesitate for a minute to stay at this lovely property again on future trips and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in a first class yet family-friendly stay in the Eureka area.

The house is very tastefully decorated and maintained. We very much appreciated all the "little things" including a well provisioned kitchen (we cook a lot), lots of books and sports equipment and well maintained outside areas."

"Beautiful ski in/out home with all the amenities" My husband and I stayed at the Big Mountain Escape with two other friends (a couple) and our dog during the last week of January 2012 and had the most amazing time. The house is gorgeous and very large - plenty of room for the four of us and the dog, with two full rooms going completely untouched. The best parts about the house: The hot tub is excellent, well maintained and situated on the top floor balcony with a view of the resort and downtown Whitefish and the surrounding mountains. We took our apres ski soaks every night and enjoyed every second of it. At one point in the week, the hot tub guy came by to service it and he was really friendly and nice and did an efficient and effective job. The mud room (entrance/foyer) and garage are great for kicking off ski boots and shoes and garaging two cars and all of your ski equipment for your stay. The house is no shoes allowed, so this became our routine. The laundry room is right off the foyer, so you can throw your wet ski clothes right into the wash when you come in. A closet gives you a good place to hang jackets and pants to dry. The kitchen is a good size with an open floor plan and has enough room for a few people to move around comfortably. The fridge was clean and ready for all of our groceries and there were lots of spices and other bits in the pantry for us to use. The living space is a good size with an incredible view of the slopes. We checked for running lifts by looking out our front window, which is handy. There's also a gas grill out there and comfortable furniture, if you're there when the weather is warm enough for it. The location is unparalleled. Just walk around the house to the left (when facing the mountain) and you can throw on your skis and ride down to the lift at the lodge. Take the lift to wherever you want to ski and then take the "Home Run" run to get back to the house later. We had enough snow when we were there to hop off of the run and across the front driveway to the entrance to the house. Very convenient. The mountain: We went in January and skied during the week, which meant that no one was there. We managed to get in just as a storm was blowing through, and had the most incredible 5 days of powder skiing in an empty resort. I think we spent one entire day riding Glory Hole in Hellroaring Basin without seeing a single other soul. Over the course of our week long stay, we *maybe* waited in lift lines for a cumulative 5 minutes. No people, super low key, beautiful big mountain with lots of trees and interesting terrain (cliffs, anyone?) and a house right off the run. It was perfect. The town: We only went into Whitefish one night, but found Latitude 48 (get a reservation) to be very good and their downstairs lounge and cocktail bar to be really fun. If you need a cab (recommended, for the drinking, you know), Drive 4 U is really good, friendly and fast. Overall, we loved our stay, the mountain and the town and we'll be back.

Sincerely, Tara Duncan PS loved, loved the chocolates - the mommies enjoyed them while the kids drooled!" (Big Mountain Escape)

Amazing place for a family get together. We were extreamely happy with everything! (Sanctuary Creek at Meadowlake)
Christine Vigneau, Chicago, lllinois
This was the perfect location and size for our family! We traveled with our 3 adult kids and LOVED the house! It exceeded our expectations. The house is extremely well appointed with high end finishes, comfortable beds and even heated toilet seats! This property was located just a short drive to Glacier National Park... a short drive to Whitefish MT where we did zip lining, alpine slide and gondolas. The supermarket just outside the golf course kept our kitchen nicely stocked. It was a great property to see the sights relax and spend family time. I would stay here again!
Marcia Stanton, Springfield, OH
We all had a good time here (The Jewel). Thank you! Lovely surrounding deer & turkey welcome.

Beautiful condo (Stump's Townhouse), very comfy beds, great location and views! Very cozy & comfy. We loved staying here!
House is amazing (Eaglebear Lodge). I've been renting on the mountain for years and this is the best!
Quiet, comfy, beautifully equipped (Stump's Townhouse). Never had such a great kitchen in a rental - viking appliances are awesome! Location is great - close enough to the action but far enough for peace & quiet. Good value for the money
Great House (Big Mtn Escape). Great Location. Thank you!!!
Well Stocked & Extreamely Comfortable! (Lazy JP Ranch)

"Dear Five Star Rental Crew, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for your assistance. From the second we got our keys ;) we had a blast. Bear Foot Cabin was perfection for our group of 5 + 2 four-leggers. All necessities were provided. We will definitely recommend your services and hope to be repeat customers when we make our way up there again. I do have a minor complaint (NOT ACTUALLY): too many extra calories! The chocolates were to die for and I only shared 1 turtle! They were so delicious, that I stopped at Copperleaf to buy boxes for the house sitter, mail man, substitute teacher, and a choco-holic friend. The town was adorable, the variety of food choices was heavenly(WASABI!!!), and we found all kinds of treasures for the quirky people in our lives. Big Mountain provided us with about every weather condition possible for the area: rain, snow, sleet, ice, ice pellets, fog, heavenly sunshine, and finally a dump of POWDER! We had a wonderful week. Thank you again, Brooke and Andy Devitt and friends"
The Harvey's, River Falls, WI
Thank you for everything! The Condo (Mountain Mystique) was absolutely wonderful. We could not have asked for a better week to come and enjoy Whitefish!

Sharon and Phil Pitt, Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin
We had a great time in Montana - Bear Foot Cabin was awesome! Everything was perfect - clean, nice, almost better than home. Thanks for all your help-we would love to come back some day and stay again. We had four days of hiking at Glacier, but there's so much we didn't get to see! You live in a beautiful state....Have a good summer! Phil and Sharon Pitt

Awesome views and a perfect secluded area. We had a great time and would recommend this cabin (Zant's Landing) to friends and family. THANK YOU!!! ~ Judy
Tom Degnan, Conshihicken, Pennsylvania
"Just wanted to drop a note to let you know how much we enjoyed the home at Sanctuary Creek. I have rented a number of houses out there over the years, and this was our favorite. We are big hikers, so we spend a lot of time in the park, and after a long day on the trail, staying in Columbia Falls versus Whitefish, does make a difference. Being close to Montana Coffee Traders was a bonus as well! Love that place. All in all we had an awesome week at the house, and hiking was spectacular!"
Karen Goelzer, Waukesha, Wisconsin
"This apartment was in an excellent location and the setup was ideal for two people vacationing in Whitefish. It completely met our expectations and we would definitely return if we come back to this area". Karen
Gundrun Fichter, Issaquah, WA
This house (Glacier View Getaway) is in excellent condition, well stocked with everything necessary (and more!) Very comfortable! High quality - we love it!

Brant Hacker, Madison MN
The home (the Jewel) was perfect for our stay. Our family of six had plenty of room to relax and the surrounding woods made us feel peaceful. Thanks for a great rental.
Teresa Taylor, Parkland, Alberta, Canada
"The home was amazing (Lazy JP Ranch). All of us loved it!! Great location, kids enjoyed the creek close by and played for hours in it. Had everything and more. The owners have put a lot of character into it. We certainly appreciated it's uniqueness. We are considering a lake vacation same week next year. Thanks very much." Teresa Taylor and friends
Dani Harvie, Challis, ID
We would like to thank you for a wonderful stay at the Walapai Lodge. The house was great and accommodated our group perfectly. Some fun things we did: The Huckleberry Festival (of course!), the Farmers Market, Spa day for the ladies at Remedies in Whitefish, Golf day for the guys, Ziplining at Big Mountain, Dinner at Point of Rocks - best prime rib!, Huckleberry pies from Loula's - to die for!!! (worth every penny), Some intense card games around the table in the evenings, Played on the lake every day!! :) Now it's back to work and school. We will be vising Whitefish and the surrounding area again! ~ Dani
Julie Westberg, Redding, CA
We have rented a lot of homes over the years and this is our favorite by far (Loon Lookout). Maybe, someday, we'll be able to return, God willing. Everything was just wonderful. Thank you ~Julie

Kathy Hay, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
"Had a fantastic time. The house was beyond expectations. We saw the most amazing sunsets! Thank you"
Randy York, Hallsville, Texas
"The cabin was great...a few very minor problems (slow drain in master bath and AV system that is sort of tricked out), but overall very livable and spacious and it seems new. Top notch furnishings and finish out as well. The location was incredible, and I don't think this listing adequately describes where it is situated. It sits on a bluff that is lined up perfectly to see the gap over Lake McDonald (you cannot see the lake itself, of course) and directly into Glacier Park. You can even see the Garden Wall (continental divide) which I figure is roughly 25-30 miles away to the Northeast. You can also see Mt. Stanton, Brown, Cannon and several others of which I already forgot the names. It is absolutely amazing to sit on the back deck and watch the sunrise, and then to see the mountains illuminated later in the day as the sun sets behind you. It is about a ten minute ride to the west entrance to Glacier if you take the back roads, and maybe 15 minutes to Columbia Falls and 25 to Whitefish. After hiking over 30 miles in the park during the week, it was always nice to come back to this house at the end of the day. We had a great time, and hopefully will get the chance to stay here again someday. WHY DO I LIVE IN TEXAS!!??? The last thing I will say is that the rental company, Five Star Rentals, is incredibly friendly and helpful. Thanks to them!"
Bruce & cheryl Gladden, Alabama
Five Star Rental office staff were super friendly! Gave great advice. The Cabin was very well equipped (Bear Foot Cabin)! - Thank you.
Gary & Sheri Gosewisch, Minnesota
Whitefish River Roost was fully equipped with everything a traveler would need and then some. We were super comfortable and enjoyed all the space after a week of traveling to get there and the motel rooms. Thanks so much for everything!!
