This .54 acre site sits on the quiet west shore of Ashley Lake, about a 30 minute drive west of Kalispell, Montana. Barely an hour drive from Glacier National park and Glacier International Airport. Ashley Lake is a mostly spring fed mountain lake sitting in the hills approximately 15 miles west of Kalispell. This lake measures approximately 6 miles long and two miles wide. The waters are so clean and clear that visibility down to 40 feet appears like only a couple feet deep. The lake itself gets down to around 300 feet at it's deepest.
This lake has produced several state record fish with species ranging from kokanee salmon, cutthroat trout, yellow perch, and rainbow-cutthroat hybrids. The state record (now beat elsewhere) rainbow-cutthroat hybrid from Ashley Lake was 35.75" and over 30 lbs.
The septic, power, drive, dock, and phone are in. We have used this property with a camper and have the 30 amp hookup and septic tie-in ready for your immediate RV or camper use. This site has the perfect natural bench for building your dream cabin or home to utilize the most private 150 feet of weed free frontage you will find on a Montana lake. With out of state owners that rarely visit on one side, and no near neighbors on the other side (or able to build there with design of parcels), you will think you are getting thousands of feet of frontage for free. This parcel is builder ready and you can start construction day one of ownership. The place even comes with an on-site storage shed for your water toys as well as a large amount of patio and landscape stone that would cost $10k+ to go and purchase. We reserve the right to take the 180 million year old dinosaur footprint covered bench and table rocks with us. The third page link above has a few pictures of that for anyone that is fond of fossils and the like.
The west stretch of the lake is the most mellow area of water as it is protected from the winds that blow in from the West. You can go out on the glassy water and find that the rest of the lake does not share the protected and pristine waters this parcel will provide. The ideal skiing and wakeboarding waters are right in front of this property. You can boat on glassy waters while Emerald cove boaters are stuck on the dock with large waves. The wind patterns predominantely come from the West and the location of this parcel allows the hills to provide this tranquill protection that the other end of the lake doesn't have.
