Shelter Island Estate is Glammah Montana

Good fences, the well-worn saying goes, make good neighbors. But what kinds of neighbors do good bodies of water make? Well, if you bought this spectacular estate perched atop a 22 acre private island in Montana’s Flathead Lake, it probably wouldn’t take you terribly long to find out.

When you’re not wandering through Shelter Island Estate’s three-story, 22,000 square foot main house (which encompasses five bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, a wine cellar, an office slathered in mahogany and featuring a limestone fireplace and an indoor shooting range, among other amenities), the 2,600 square foot guest house/boat house (with two bedrooms and four bathrooms), the 1,200 square foot utility building/generator house, or the 1,800 square foot workshop, you can stroll along the island’s 4,800 feet (that’s more than nine-tenths of a mile) of shoreline, gazing out at a lake that’s regarded by some as one of the cleanest and clearest on earth. For $39 million, it doesn’t get much more spectacular than this.
