Amtrak opened a route from Denver International Airport to Winter Park last year, a ski resort community that’s been a Denver locals’ haunt for years because of its proximity. The new train route has been a game changer, making Winter Park the only ski resort in North America with direct train access from a major city to the slopes. Think about the implications for city-dwellers and Europeans accustomed to traveling by train. For anyone who doesn’t like to drive in snow or be at the mercy of shuttle service. For families with kids who bring along too many friends to fit in a vehicle. For young adults old enough to travel but too young to rent a car …

It’s hard to measure the train’s direct impact, but one thing’s clear: Winter Park, Colorado real estate is booming.

The flies are tied, the tackle box organized, the waders retrieved from storage, and ready to go! We’re wishbooking Whitefish real estate for a lovely fishing retreat in the woods of the cool environs of Montana.

The small town of Whitefish (population 6,357 per the 2010 census) headquartered on the south end of Whitefish Lake in Northwest Montana, offers splendid fishing in the Lake and the nearby river and streams. It’s not far from access to snow sports and summer activities at popular Whitefish Mountain Resort. The area is surrounded by forested state and national parks, including one of the country’s most famous— Glacier National Park — situated a half hour away. Whitefish’s average high temperature in July and August is 80 degrees; the low, 50. It’s an outdoor lover’s paradise.

Here’s a picture book-pretty cabin, 1815 Four Wheel Drive, which sits on a meticulously landscaped nearly-one-acre lot. Located near the western shore of the lake, it’s just a 10-minute drive to the town center where charming restaurants, shops, and cultural amenities cluster near a historic railway depot. About a mile wide and seven miles long, Whitefish Lake is one of the largest in Montana and is home to large mountain whitefish, bull trout, rainbow, and northern pike, caught mainly by trolling with spin gear. It’s a popular spot for sailing and waterskiing, too. This cozy cabin with modern amenities shares lakefront access, just a hop, skip and a jump from its door.  (more…)
