Bigfork house description

Our Lakehouse is a fantastic Bigfork area location directly on Flathead Lake for a single, a couple, a trio or a family of four. Flathead Lake is the largest lake in the west of the Mississippi River and has a surface area of over 191 square miles! Flathead Lake is also known as one of the cleanest in the world for its size and type.

The 800 square foot home, built in 2001, is like new. Beautiful red Oak hardwood floors, tight construction, and tasteful decorating highlight the living area. The living area sits on top of a two car garage and has 1.5 bathrooms and 1 bedroom. Additional sleeping is accommodated by two double bed size futons in the living room. The living room, which comes equipped with Satellite television and fast 1.5/256 DSL-WIFI Internet connection, opens to a large deck which faces a Western exposure of Flathead Lake. The 640 square foot Trex deck provides ample room for morning coffee, barbeques, and relaxing evenings.

The inviting lakeshore dock is one of the finest you will ever see and is simply perfect for hours and hours of fun in crystal clear Flathead Lake. The dock is 60' long by 28' wide at the "L" (therefore the "inside" of the "L" is approximately. 20'). The entire dock is a comfortable 8' wide. The decking material is entirely Trex so no splinters or rot. A high quality swim ladder is attached to the end of the dock. The length and width of the dock is the maximum allowed by code. Our Flathead Lakehouse is located three miles South of downtown Bigfork, 25 minutes from Kalispell, 35 minutes to Glacier International Airport, 35 minutes South to Polson for great golf and shopping and 55 minutes to Glacier Park. Golf, fishing, horseback riding, water sports, shopping, and sightseeing are all nearby.

Sun bathe and swim on the dock or read and relax in the shade by the waterside. All the comforts of home await you in these fully equipped centers of fun and relaxation. This category of home presents breath taking waterfront views that both captivate and soothe your senses.



Located along the East Shore of Flathead Lake only about 3 miles south of Bigfork, MT and accessed via Montana Highway 35.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Hi, my name is Rick and my wife's name is Susan. We have three children ranging from early college to middle school. We live in Bradenton Florida. A long hike from Montana but we definitely try to make it up to Montana either during the summer (to cool off!) or during winter break for a little skiing. Thanks for looking and we hope to see you in our guest book soon!

                  Why the Owner Chose Bigfork:
                  Our family has owned this property since the early 60’s. In 2001 we finally decided to build this house on the lot. We try to vacation ourselves here a few times a year although it is long trip from Florida. But we truly love Montana so this is a keeper for us! This lot is No. 10 (in the middle) of 18 lots in the Piedmont tract. All the lots have lake frontage and most have about 104 or so feet on the lake. But the most unique part of the lot and the other surrounding is the depth. All the lots extend to Sylvan road (the paved road back up the hill). Lot No. 1 to your North has 1,384 feet of depth, this lot has 1,297 feet of depth, and lot No. 18 is 1,076 feet deep. Total area for this lot is 2.93 acres.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Every sense you have is stimulated by the location; but not in the 'traditional' way you would be if you were to walk through the streets in a bustling city. If you are from a busy area such as the city or a suburban location, one of the first things you will notice is the quietness and silence of the area with the exception of a bird chirping or a perhaps a distant boat in the background. Sometimes you actually have to take a day or two to adjust but you soon realize how you take for granted the noisy 'normal' environment back home is. If you fly into Montana one of the first things I notice when I step outside the airport in Kalispell is the smell of the evergreen trees. It seems as if you have just walked into a Christmas tree yard during the holiday season. At the house the main benefit is, of course, the view. Living on the Northeast area of the Lake is simply the best area. You get the best sunlight, the best views, the best weather, and few if any bugs (I have yet to be bit by a mosquito ever since I have been at my house!). Plus you are close to one of the neatest towns in the valley, Bigfork. Unlike most waterfront lots on the Lake, this one is situated far enough from the highway as so you will not hear or sense the presence of any motor vehicles except for the occasional neighbor slowly rambling down the dirt road in the front of the house. Let's put it this way - if I was to ever have the ability to quit my day job in Florida (praying for those lucky numbers!!), guess where you would find myself and my family all summer?? (oh, and not to mention, one less waterfront lake house off the rental market ;-)!! You will enjoy this property. We recently had one tenant who rented from us multiple weeks in the summer for years and years. They could have chosen from many other properties each year but came back to us year after year. And his reason for leaving - they took the plunge and bought their own house nearby on the lake!
