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.
