Have you ever been to Flathead Lake? It’s the biggest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. It’s clean and clear. It’s teal and turquoise and emerald and aquamarine. It was carved out by the massive glaciers that shaped the magnificent peaks Northwest Montana is famous for. Travel blogger Leigh McAdam, of HikeBikeTravel, recently visited from Alberta, and she loved it! Check out her post for some beautiful photos. She visited West Shore State Park, on the northwest shoulder of the lake, and camped near the water. The state park is just down the road from most Lakeside MT real estate, and a stone’s throw from downtown Lakeside.
For local homeowners, the park is the perfect access point for catching some rays in the afternoon, or getting on the water for a morning paddle. That’s the beauty of living by the lake, all the micro-advenctures that you can incorporate into daily life. Bonus: Montana residents gain free admission to state parks. Regular visitors to Flathead Lake fish, swim, SUP, kayak, sail, and even scuba dive! If you own Lakeside MT real estate, it’s hard to resist the water, especially during these hot summer days—you’ll probably be able to see the sparkling waters from your kitchen window. Aside from the lake, there’s a beautiful outdoors amphitheater, lots of restaurants, hiking, and ample cherry picking in Lakeside. Come winter homeowners enjoy alpine and nordic skiing and snowboarding at Blacktail Mountain Ski Area, which is right in this tight-knit community’s backyard.
If you’re interested in living on the lake, consider Lakeside MT real estate! The market is in a great place right now for buyers. Give us a call, or browse Lakeside Montana real estate online.
