fit for our luxury brand.

focus on dominating and raising the property values & rental
rates in Whitefish has clearly demonstrated the optimal Return on
Investment is to invest right downtown. The higher paying rental
clientele demand being downtown. With over 15 independent
restaurants and pubs the heartbeat of the Flathead Valley region is
downtown Whitefish. The 2nd
Street Lofts allow our high end rental guests to simply and safely
walk to every destination downtown.
MT has strict zoning regulations for areas allowing nightly/weekly
vacation rentals making The 2nd

finite amount of competition for future developments allowing luxury
vacation rentals which WE LOVE. Less competition = Higher Nightly
