Endless Sky Estate

Welcome Home.

A gated, paved drive winds its way to up Lion Mountain to this one-of-a-kind estate. Nestled in the privacy of 20 acres, the 10,200sf lodge embodies Montana with its thick Douglas fir timbers, cedar shingles, soaring ceilings, and local “Chief Cliff” stone. The majestic entrance sets the stage for the details inside, with only the view of Mother Nature herself possibly topping the quality and craftsmanship of the interior.

Mountain Majesty.

The focal point of the Endless Sky Estate may well be its spectacular great room with magnificent woodwork and grand windows. The lodge overlooks Whitefish Lake and offers seemingly endless views of nearby Whitefish Mountain Ski and Summer Resort and the legendary snow-capped peaks of Glacier National Park from its 2000sf of decking. Inside, the views are equally unobstructed with massive mitered windows throughout. The sumptuous master suite includes a fireplace and private deck for afternoon sunning or a morning coffee. Family and visitors will feel at home in the three guest suites and the full apartment above the garage.

Exclusive Entertaining.

The kitchen at Endless Sky Estate was designed with entertaining in mind, whether an intimate dinner party for six or a soiree for sixty. The bounty from the Whitefish Farmer’s Market will translate beautifully to the table with the help of the 48-inch Dacor range, microwave, and warming drawer, the 9-foot-high copper hood, double Subzero refrigerators, freezers, refrigerated drawers, and a wine chiller, and two Asko dishwashers. The dining room’s custom cantilevered buffet, adorned with an exquisite curved piece of carved and etched glass, adds an artistic beauty to already-exceptional dining experiences. The 860-bottle wine cellar, custom home theater, library with fireplace, and outdoor spa and firepit provide further enjoyment for guests.

About the Area: Whitefish, Montana

The authentic mountain town of Whitefish, Montana, is set in the heart of the Rocky Mountain wilderness near Glacier National Park. Locals and visitors flock to Whitefish Lake for swimming in the summer and Whitefish Mountain for skiing in the winter. With more than 700 miles of well-marked trails, the area is ripe for hiking and exploration, with clear streams, lakes, and glaciers all along the way. Whether skiing across a snow-topped landscape or bicycling the Going-to-the-Sun Road, the entire region is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. The community also enjoys a strong theater and arts community, with hundreds of sculptors, craftsmen, painters, and authors calling Whitefish home. The first Thursday of each month from May to October is Gallery Night, where the town’s 13 galleries stay open late for cocktails and artist events.
