Bigfork house description

This unique setting allows you to slip into several different vacation modes. If you opt for a day of seclusion, this getaway tucked into its own peaceful 10 acres of riverfront, offers multiple outdoor activities, coming with boats, bikes, volleyball, badminton and horseshoes.

Indoors, the 3,100 SF log home features large windows on both levels, offering expansive views to enjoy while sitting or reading. The upper level den includes a 60-inch high-def TV and blueray player. And you'll find high-speed wireless internet and desk with fax/printer/scanner/copier, to accommodate anyone on a working vacation.

When you move outdoors, you might sunbathe or fish on the dock, paddle upriver, or use the lawn & sports equipment. for games.

The trip into Bigfork is short, either on the biking/walking nature trail, or via a drive of less than 5 minutes. Bigfork offers dining, art galleries, live summer theatre, and the marina opening onto Flathead Lake. It is a 30 minute drive to Kalispell, and its Glacier Int Airport (FCA). A visit to Glacier National Park, or the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area, 45 minutes away, is unforgettable. In the same area is Whitefish, and its ski area. Surrounded by so many majestic mountain ranges, a new road or trail always beckons.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Coming from ranch backgrounds, we both grew up in Wyoming, went to college there, & still work there. The photo shows us & our grown children on horseback in the Bighorns.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bigfork:
                  The majestic mountains & multitude of river & lake activities drew us into the great outdoors, during visits to family in Swan Valley. Days spent on the water or hiking trails felt like we were visiting paradise. The get-away atmosphere is enhanced when visiting the quaint village of Bigfork, with its restaurants, shops, & even live summer theatre. We were always wanting to return to Bigfork!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The cozy, log-cabin ambiance & its roomy 10 acres, the unobstructed mountain and river views, the allure of boating & fishing; & the 5-mimute proximity to both Bigfork, & to the biking/hiking path.. all this this told us we'd love being here.
