“Bear Creek”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

This place is quiet, relaxing and an excellent choice. We stayed in 118 Bear Creek next to the indoor pool/outdoor hot tub/sauna. The pool area was well maintained and clean. We did a RCI exchange for a three bedroom unit for two couples for a week in July. Check-in was easy and the staff was very accommodating. The unit was well stocked and very clean. The unit had three levels, two bedrooms on the first floor with a bathroom, kitchen/living room with bathroom accessed by stairs from the parking area and another loft area in the upper level. The main level living area included an outside deck with BBQ grill, table & chairs. We sat on the deck in the evening surrounded by trees. The three levels were accessed by a spiral staircase. The staircase could be a problem for anyone with a handicap. Laundry facilities were nearby. The Village is near downtown Whitefish with many great restaurants, a farmer's market and many shops. It is just below the Big Mountain Ski Resort area.

What a great resort in the mountains of Montana. We stayed in unit 55 of Kicking Horse, very well maintained and loaded with many amenities that you see in 5 star resorts. Granite counter tops, newer appliances, modern main floor bathroom. We came to this resort with friends and flipped a coin for the master bedroom. Master bedroom is very spacious, the loft was not really accessible, you get into it by a steep ladder and had 2 single beds. The hidabed in the living room was so poor we had to take the comforters from the loft to make it useable. Overall a nice unit for a family with kids but using the hidabed in the living room takes up a lot of space and it is a pain to close it up very day. This should be a 1 bedroom with loft unit.

We really enjoyed the unit we stayed in at Ptarmigan Village. We were in a loft unit in the Sawtooth building.
The unit was decorated really well, and had everything we needed. It was quiet and relaxing, but close to Big Mountain resort and the town of Whitefish (cute town, but lots of road construction at this time)

The deck was a good size and we were able to sit out and enjoy the cool mountain air and listen to the birds.

We would stay here again when we visit this area.

Room Tip: The pool is a distance so if you have kids, this would be a consideration.

Best deal/stay in Whitefish!

We stayed in 54 Kicking Horse via the website mtbucksawcondo.com. It was a better deal than booking the room through the village itself.

The 3 bedroom unit was perfect and the most affordable stay at the village of any of the group we travelled with.

The hot tub & swimming pool are well maintained and beautiful. My 10year old loved it & met some new friends. We loved it & can't wait to go back!

We spent a great family week in Hamer House and enjoyed the hot tub, the spacious rooms and the location close to Whitefish, Glacier Park and Whitefish Mountain. It was our 50th Anniversary and we ranged in age from 7-72 and the village was perfect for everyone. We enjoyed the fact that the teenagers had to walk to access wifi and often their cell phones didn't work forcing them to have to converse! Hamer House was very well equipped with plenty of space to sleep our twelve people. Also enjoyed the trails, outdoor and indoor pools and outdoor hot tub. We'd love to visit Ptarmigan again.

We took my Mom and 3 year old with us for a trip to Glacier National Park and this place was perfect! The playground and indoor swimming pool were amazing. My husband said it was one of the best indoor pools for young kids and I agree. It was a little far from the park but having a full kitchen and washer and dryer made the drive worth it. We saved a fortune. We will be back!

We stayed in a loft unit via VRBO#199676, with a great deck for grilling. It was super clean and seemed brand new inside with all the stainless steel appliances and great beds. We explored Glacier National Park, and golfed amazing courses. We are already finding a date so we can book again this winter to try the skiing!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Ptarmigan Village is a quiet community, nestled in a cedar forest, on the SW slope of The Big Mountain. We are located only a few minutes from Whitefish Mountain Resort that has year round activities for skiers, boarders, bikers and hikers. Located only 35 miles from Glacier National Park, we are a great location for staging your NW Montana adventures. Our amenities include:a new pool building that includes an indoor salt water swimming pool, a large outdoor hot tub and a dry sauna. Next to the pool building is a playground for children. In summer, our outdoor pool is perfect for relaxing or you can take a drive down to our beach on Whitefish Lake where you can take a swim and revel in a gorgeous sunset. Hiking is right out your door with 52 acres to roam. We have two newly resurfaced tennis courts if you want to get in a game. Elmer's Pond is stocked with trout each spring for children to try their luck. We have a variety of one, two and three bedroom condominiums for rent and also offer RCI exchanges. We have a beautiful Alpine village setting and condos that were crafted in the 1970's and 1980's - most have been updated to provide wonderful accommodations. PLEASE NOTE: all condominiums have stairs or spiral staircases to the bedrooms and lofts (if equiped). Also note that during the winter you are advised to have all-wheel drive, we plow our roads daily, but you will encounter winter driving conditions this close to the ski slopes! A laundromat is situated in the center of the village and wifi is available there and at the indoor pool building. We hope to see you soon. ... more   less
