Our property is a great spot to make your base camp for daily adventures in this region. We’re located just 3 paved miles off of US. HWY 2 and nestled into a private hillside, away from the few people that do live in our neighborhood. We’re an hour from Glacier National Park, 45 minutes from the resort towns of Whitefish, and Bigfork (both with great, independent shops and restaurants), and Flathead Lake, the largest natural lake west of the Mississippi. There is easy access to the Lost Trail National Wildlife Refuge within 15 minutes from the campsite. 

Our driveway goes right uphill and then take a left onto the grass-covered forest road on our property.  With two switchbacks, you'll climb about 100 feet to your private campsite which includes a wooden platform, screened room, hammocks, cozy chairs, picnic table, composting toilet, solar shower, a changing room, and a full view of the lake. You’ll be camping at the highest point on our property, where you'll take in 360 degree views of sub-alpine forest, a rocky ravine and almost the full length of the beautiful Little Bitterroot Lake with public access less than 3 miles away! 

You'll gaze down and see glimpses of our tiny farm and may see our Shetland Sheep, Alpacas and Cashmere goats foraging, our chickens scratching about, our tiny orchard, the 120-year old log cabin, originally built up the road when the Northern Pacific Railroad went through this area and that we dismantled and rebuilt here on our farm, and of course the tiny pottery studio where Patti works most days creating pottery designed to celebrate the simple pleasures in life and the comforts of home. Less than three miles down the road is the Hilltop Hitching Post, a sweet local hangout for food, drinks and good conversation. You'll pass a convenience store/gas station and post office on your way to our farm. 

Looking back toward the ravine, you may see some wildlife milling about, likely including whitetail deer with a possible sighting of elk, moose, and black bear. Frequently eagles and other large birds of prey can be observed overhead at the campsite riding the air currents down to the lake. We are surrounded by beautiful mountain lakes, hiking trails, biking, fishing, kayaking, floating, and paddling adventures.

Could not meet Dan and Patti in person but through phone they were very friendly and helpful.
The site is exactly as they described, enjoyed the stay there.
Bit far away from the Glacier National Park so if you are aiming Glacier plan properly.

Gorgeous place to stay. The site is very nice and very private. The outdoor shower was amazing as well. Dan and Patti were the perfect hosts and always answered any questions or concerns very quickly and made sure we had everything we needed.

Lake View Roost has stunning views that overlook Bitterroot lake and surrounding mountains. It is very peaceful, quiet, and secluded from the hustle and bustle of Kalispell and Glacier national park. Dan and Patti are great host, we did a meet and greet. They are very knowledgeable about the area. They also handled the composting toilet when we left for the day, and made sure we had fresh warm water for the solar shower. The camp site is also not far from a garbage disposal site. The camp site is easy to find, clearly labeled and not far from Kalispell. It's a beautiful drive out to the campsite. The campsite itself is a great place to wind down for the night. You can watch the sunset from a deck with a gazebo.
