Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: In 1989 our family came to the Flathead Lake for our first family reunion. The impact of this event was so profound that six months later, our father bought property on the lake and built The Last Best Place guest house. He lived there while building the main house. Our father's dream was to have a place where his family would want to come together every year. Our family has been blesssed to have had this opportunity come true.

Why the Owner Chose Bigfork:
In 1997 our father sustained a strike, which limited his ability to fully enjoy The Last Best Place. It brought to our attention the importance of barrier free design and accessing the beautiful outdoors. Our family wants to make a difference in the lives of others with disabilities that visit the Flathead Lake regiion by accomodating their needs. The main house is fully wheelchair assesable. The guest house does have a lower level queen bedroom and a open wheel in shower.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
'It is our vision and mission to make this place available to other families, particulary those who may have a physcial impairment, and to provide an opportunity to share the magic that our family experiences each and every year.' The Idler Family
