Lakeside cottage description

This delightful Cottage on the lake offers 1744 charming square feet with picturesque views of Flathead Lake, the Swan Mountains and parts of the Mission Mountaln Range. Create memories to last a lifetime whether it is by yourself or with friends or family. Enjoy relaxation at its finest on the large deck, the private dock, or from the beach looking out over the remarkable waters of Flathead Lake.

Your boat is welcome too! Flathead Lake offers you plenty of room to play – in, on, and by the water. Located just south of Kalispell, the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi is 28 miles long and up to 15 miles wide. That’s 188 square miles of pure enjoyment! The lake’s sparkling waters and miles of tree-lined shore offer unlimited recreational opportunities and wildlife habitat. Overlooking it all are the magnificent Swan and Mission mountain ranges.

You will love the prime location which offers dining and other amenities within biking distance. Within minutes of driving or boating, Bigfork with its restaurants, shopping and theatre performances is a real treat. Fishing is abundant all year round out your door on any one of the Flathead Valley's many lakes. Glacier National Park and all its beauty can be reached in about an hour where you can spend the day hiking, whitewater rafting, sightseeing or taking a helicopter ride.

The hard part will be deciding what to do while visiting our Cottage. Stay inside and catch a movie, water ski, Jet Ski, take a swim in the refreshing waters, or troll the lake for some trout, whitefish, perch and much more. Canoe, kayak, sail, charter fish on the lake by day and then by night you can quickly be to any one of a number of close by towns for dinner, dancing, and theaters or simply hang out and take in the starry filled skies and the lakes gentle waves…great for creating memories and soothing the soul.

              About: In 1955 Richard and Becky Mattson made their first payment on this modest home on the lake. Over the years they lovingly added a fireplace, windows, a full length deck, and a small master bedroom/bath. Richard was a teacher, dean of students and administrator with a quick wit and a gentle smile. Becky was one of the first women in Montana to get her Broker’s license and started showing and selling lake property. Becky was an artist, a relentless supporter of community, and a gracious lady. Their son, Dick, was raised here fishing the lake year round, swimming and waterskiing in the summers, ice skating to the two room school house down the road (if the bay was frozen), hunting grouse and deer on the trails behind the house, and marrying his sweetheart, Ursula, in the yard overlooking the lake and the Swan Mountain range. Richard and Becky have passed on but we (Dick and Ursula) have kept many of the furnishings and treasures to remind us of decades of laughter and tears, hard work and relaxing evenings, and countless family gatherings and celebrations through the decades. We hope that you feel the joy and peace that comes from waking to sunrise over the lake and sleeping to the sound of gentle waves on the beach.
