Whitefish, MT (PRWEB) February 6, 2007
Trails West Eagle Bend Realty is pleased to announce the completion of "Endless Sky" (http://www.endlessskymontana.com), a very private Montana ski lodge overlooking the beautiful Big Mountain Ski Resort and Whitefish Lake. This Montana ski lodge is not for the average skier. Whitefish, Montana, the location of Endless Sky, is not Vail, but then lots of people are very happy about that. To some people the relatively undiscovered slopes of Big Mountain Ski Resort and the very down to earth town of Whitefish are more desirable than Colorado's trendy ski resorts. Even in Whitefish the choosy skier may not want to live slope side. For that person, this unique, luxurious private mountain lodge and its spectacular setting is perfect.
The Rocky Mountain contemporary lodge is located outside of the small ski town of Whitefish, Montana with a population of a mere 6,700 at 4,000 foot in elevation. Just 45 minutes from the airport, this private lodge overlooks Whitefish Lake and gazes directly across the lake at the southern slopes of the Big Mountain Ski Resort. Located on 20 acres of forested mountainside, (with an additional 20 acres available if desired) this stunning home is in a private and secluded world of its own. The views from Endless Sky, which include the Canadian Rockies, Big Mountain Ski Resort, and Glacier National Park, are unsurpassed. The runs at Big Mountain Ski Resort are in plain site, so there is no need for a snow or weather report. When the splendor of Montana's ski season is over, the fun of summer begins with boating and waterskiing on the lake from your private dock in the marina.
Endless Sky was designed and built by the same team who created Eagles Rest, the spectacular Flathead Lake home featured on the Discovery Channel's oft-aired "Great American Lake Homes" show. Located at the end of a private, gated drive and guarded by a life size bronze mountain lion, the lodge encompasses 10,200 square feet, is air conditioned and has in-floor heat in all bathrooms. There are three guest suites in addition to the huge master suite. The 700 square foot great room has 25' ceilings and a magnificent stone fireplace. All exterior corners in the home have mitered windows (no mullions) to afford seamless views of the spectacular mountain surroundings. There are six fireplaces throughout the lodge, including the den, library and recreation room. Additional features include a custom 8' x 11' water wall with pond and planters, a sauna, 862 bottle wine cellar, exercise room, and home theater with complete surround sound. Lutron lighting and whole house audio/video throughout the entire lodge. Two mechanical rooms to rival any commercial enterprise support the lodge. A 40 kilowatt generator stands ready to step in during a power outage. All appliances are top drawer.
Endless Sky's basic construction is cedar and stone. Massive glu-lam beams of fir and larch span the great room. All windows and French doors are weathershield legacy Low E for energy efficiency. The exterior is cedar and Montana Chief Cliff stone with a concrete tile roof. Over 2,000 square feet of clear cedar decking overlook the stone patios and deer-resistant landscaping. A spa recessed into the stones of the patio and a fire pit await apres ski parties.
The lodge is fully furnished and decorated in a striking, but warm Rocky Mountain contemporary style. There is a caretaker's apartment above the oversized three car garage, which features custom built carriage house doors.
