Bigfork estate description

Located in Bigfork, in the middle of Flathead Valley, Cougar Trail Ranch is the ideal site for large gatherings. It is perfectly designed for family reunions, weddings, and corporate retreats. Nestled in fourteen acres of paradise, The Ranch is surrounded by the magnificent Montana wilderness. The view of the Rockies is simply breathtaking.

The Ranch House

This beautiful vacation home is cozy though very spacious (5,000 sq. ft). The Old World style woodwork and the earthy colors give it a true feeling of a home away from home. With its fully equipped kitchen and adjacent living room with fireplace, your family and friends will be able to create complete and/or fancy meals while enjoying the amazing view of the mountains.

It was built by the owner himself and his two sons. As a general contractor and carpenter, Arlan designed his dream home for his family. Now that his family is all grown up, you have the privilege of enjoying great moments in this superb home too. Each bedroom has its own style and personality. They are all named after his children and grandchildren.

The Ranch House is equipped and set up as a fully furnished property that includes bedspreads, linens, blankets, pillows, towels and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and five-burner range top. The 8 bedrooms include 2 king, 7 queen, 2 full and 7 twin beds, as well as 2 sofa beds. There are 3 full bathrooms and a powder room. The master bathroom has a separate shower, and Jacuzzi tub. The living room has a gas fireplace, and the kitchen area a wood stove. There is a gym and a theater room that has state of the art projection system. It includes a wireless system that is connected to Wi-Fi and has TV, Netflix, hulu plus, Pandora, vudu, and other movie channels free of charge as well as all hook ups for tablets and portable computers. A speaker system is set to play music in all the main rooms of the first floor and outdoors on both the front and back decks.

The Ranch House features two large decks. On the front deck you will find a gas grill, tables and chairs for relaxing and dining. It is surrounded by gardens, a pond with a fountain, a beautiful lawn and an outstanding view of the mountains. Not to mention the fire pit for roasting marshmallows! On the back deck you will find a table and chairs for relaxing or dining. Wind down the day in the spa and have fun playing a game of foosball. On demand, we can set up our volleyball net on the side lawn.

The Cabin

A perfect place for a romantic getaway or a fun trip with the kids. Enjoy the beautiful Flathead valley and Glacier National Park. Offering space and solitude, yet close to the Ranch House, this is the ultimate private getaway that can sleep 6 people. From its front deck, you can also enjoy the spectacular view of the mountains.

The Cabin is equipped and set up as a fully furnished property that includes bedspreads, linens, blankets, pillows, towels and a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, 3 bar stools, a table and 6 chairs. It features a small living room, a master bedroom with a queen-size bed, a full bathroom, and a loft with a king size bed and a sofa bed that sleeps 2. We have to mention that to access the loft you'll need to climb a ladder (see photos). On the front deck you will find chairs, a small table and a gas grill for BBQs.
