Saying there is no place on earth quite like Kootenai passes the closest scrutiny.
Founded by Montana's Copper Kings 90 years ago, this living storybook nests easily on a half-mile stretch of Northwest Montana's Swan Lake and River spiced with a sparkling creek rippling through it all.
This perfect marriage of mystical waters, age-old forests, unbridled recreational assets and storied history make Kootenai one of those most unique and exclusive residential enclaves in the country.
Its abundance of genuine, natural gifts is a clear distinction from the more conceptual, contrived communities that can be found most anywhere.
Luminaries such as Charles Lindbergh, Will Rodgers and John D. Rockefeller stayed here. Now you, and just 41 other families, have the unprecedented opportunity to live here.
Central to the community is the Grand Kootenai Lodge, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has been described as one of the most perfect examples of rustic log architecture ever created. Meticulously restored utilizing the original timbers, stone and hardwoods, it is now the prime gathering place for Kootenai families.
Whatever adventures you and your family might desire are also right here. ;There is everything from our beach, docks and marina that serve as a springboard to trout fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and swimming. to our lagoon-style swimming pool, wet dock, spa and fitness center that can be enjoyed without leaving home. Nearby you can try hiking in the summer grandeur of the Swan Lake Range as well as Glacier National Park, skiing the Whitefish Mountain Resort's 3000 acres, or enjoy golf, biking, snowmobiling, and horseback riding. What's more, they can all be effortlessly arranged for you by our Recreation Director. Let this incomparable place, these extraordinary adventures, be a part of your life.
