Big Arm house description
Enjoy this spacious 2240 sq ft lakehouse with a large dock and 100 feet of lake frontage. From the large deck, enjoy the wonderful views of Flathead Lake, Wildhorse Island, and the Mission Mountains.
In the morning, the water of Big Arm bay is peaceful and serene. Enjoy your coffee on the deck overlooking the still glass water. Usually the bald eagle or osprey will perch on the gnarled old tree by the water. The kids will head down to the water to swim and play and when they've tired themselves out, can heat up in the hot tub. Head down to the dock and join them, or toss around the frisbee in the grassy lawn between the house and the water. It's a good spot for volleyball, badminton, or any outdoor games we have or you care to bring.
Later in the day, the breeze may pick up and bring out the sailboats. Big Arm bay is their favorite and you can watch them sail out the bay to Wildhorse Island. It's not far and you may want to go out and explore it yourself. If you bring your own boat, you can moor it at the dock, on the buoy, or even bring it out of the water on the boat lift.
In the evening, the lake is once again quiet and glassy and now a waterskier's paradise. As the sun sets on the lake, you all sit around the fire by the water, make smores and talk about all the fun you had.
There are enough beds to sleep 14 people with four bedrooms as well as a living room and family room which double as sleep rooms. On the upper floor, the master has a queen bed and it's own bathroom. Also on the upper floor is a second bedroom with a double-size futon which can sleep two. It also has access to the bathroom. The kitchen and living room are also on the upper floor. The lower floor has two bedrooms, one with a double and two twin beds, the other with a queen and a single bed. There is a bathroom between them. Also on the lower floor is a family room which has a queen size waterbed and a double-sized hide-a-bed sofa.
There is no shortage of things to do with water sports, golf, horse back riding, a nearby bike / running track, or fishing for huge lake trout. We recommend Mo Fisch Fishing Charters, Polson Country Club, Kwataqnuk water craft rentals, and Cheff's Ranch Horseback Rental.
If you're looking for excursions, Glacier National Park, the National Bison Refuge, Wild Horse Island State Park, Whitefish, and Lake Mary Ronan are only short distances away.

About the owner: We live in western Montana and love to have fun in the water in the summertime and ski in the wintertime. We enjoy hiking in Glacier National Park and our lakehouse makes a great base camp for exploring the park.
Why the Owner Chose Big Arm:
We chose our lakehouse because it was so family-friendly and suited our many needs. It is nestled in the trees and feels secluded, yet it has a big grass lawn and is quite level right at the lake. It is close to the water so we could watch the children play from the deck and be close to the action.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Staying on Big Arm Bay is unique because sailboats use the bay and the straits around Wildhorse Island. The bay is calmer than the main lake and the sailboats are quiet and peaceful to watch. There is a running/bike riding trail near the property which leads directly to Big Arm State Park and if you go the other direction it leads to a quiet little marina. An old tree just to the east is a favorite perch for large birds of prey, such as bald eagles and osprey. You can watch and photograph them right from the deck!
