Manager info

Year Purchased: 1993

About: Our parents built this home because of the peaceful beauty the eminates from the lake and throughout the country side. We lived in NY and this was the perfect escape and family getaway. We put away the remote controls, dusted off our hiking boots and spent entire days outdoors appreciating nature and spending time with family. Our mother was an award winning architectural designer and this home was featured in log home magazines in 1994. Our family spent 3 months out of the yaer living in this home, and once our parents retired, more or less, they spent half the year here. My brother and I now have this treasure and we are excited to share it with you and hear your stories.

Why Bigfork:
We chose this location because of its lakefront land, amazing sunsets, and proximity to ski mountains and Glacier National Park. We also fell in love with the small mountain charm of Bigfork town with its famous artists and delicious restaurants.
