“Try explaining the towering mountain ranges, the wild forestlands or the sweeping ripples of Flathead Lake without infusing some level of hyperbole. You have to see it to believe it. The same goes for Shelter Island Estate.”

Currently, featured in the 2017 Spring edition of Flathead Living Magazine, “Montana’s Most Expensive Mansion” is an account of the history of Montana’s Shelter Island, the challenges it has faced and the prospect of a new owner.
“Construction of the grand estate began in 2001 and materials started arriving by the barge load, from African mahogany to Carrara marble. Every aspect of the three-story, five-bedroom main house, from the copper observatory overlooking the lake to the great hall with its 45-foot ceilings, was custom designed with craftsman skill.”
“While Shelter Island awaits a new suitor, several other high-end properties that emerged in the Flathead’s boom years of the 90’s and 2000s are also for sale. Including Shelter, five of the seven most expensive listings in the state are in the valley. Four are tucked along Whitefish Lake.”
It is Glacier Sotheby’s International Realty’s great honor and pleasure to represent the majority of these exceptional properties.
“Bill Foley, the majority owner of Whitefish Mountain Resort, Glacier Restaurant Group and a new NHL franchise, the Vegas Knights, has listed his 21-acre ranch with 11,500 -square-foot lodge-style home along the northern end of Whitefish Lake.” See video below!

“Next to Foley’s estate the Swift Eagle Ranch is listed for $20 million and boasts more than 500 feet of lakeshore frontage. The 35 acre enclave includes 4,868 square feet of living space surrounded by a mountain spring that feeds into ponds on the property.”
