You can live in town, near the mountains, or on the lake Almost any home or condo has a spectacular view of the mountains or lake. There is at least one active community in the area (see link at right).
Whitefish real estate can have a wide range depending on location (on the lake will be expensive, obviously) and the size and quality of the home. Prices became quite expensive in the 2000's because of the real estate boom for 2nd homes and because there is a limited supply of privately available land. In late 2014 the median sale price of a home was about $275,000, according to City-data.com.
