Bigfork house description

LAKE RETREAT FARM
You get your own 68+ FEET of FLATHEAD LAKE PRIVATE SHORELINE.

THE LARGEST FRESH WATER LAKE WEST OF THE MISSISSIPPI.

Explore the lake shore in our canoe or one of the 2 paddle-boards.

This beautifully furnished vacation rental home features hard wood and tile floors laid with stunning hand knotted Persian carpets; a large outdoor deck overlooking a cherry and apple orchard, Flathead Lake and the dramatic mountain backdrop on the opposite shore. Sunsets are spectacular! Sheep and chickens are usually here on the farm (check before booking if this feature is important to you).

This Retreat Rental also includes a large kitchen with a commercial range.

Rent the owners own beautifully furnished home for a week or even a few days! This 3+ Acre Home and Orchard Lake Shore Property offers many delights and amusements.

There is over one acre of fruit trees with all kinds of fruit, in season, to graze through: cherry, apricot, peaches, nectarine, pears, plums, apples, raspberries, strawberries.

You can saunter through our private sun dappled woods, to our PRIVATE LAKE SHORE for a refreshing dip in the lake (250 yards from the house, about a 5 minute walk).

Or just FLOAT YOUR CARES AWAY bobbing lazily on the water. There are also picnic tables, chairs, BBQ, a hammock and a campfire ring at the lakeshore.

              About the owner: We live here year around and in the summer we move out of the house. We are usually near by and can assist to insure your vacation staying with us is a pleasant experience for everyone in your group. You can visit our booth at the Whitefish Farmers Market during the summer where we sell organic fruit from our farm.(see Photo).

              Why the Owner Chose Bigfork:
              We enjoy all the different seasons as it is a change from So. Calif. where we used to live. We have good air connections here to travel conveniently. Even though we enjoy the rural living, our nearby cities have the entertainment and group activities we also enjoy (theater, music events,dancing and other clubs and groups doing may activities that we can participate in.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We enjoy swimming and boating the the summer, cross country skiing in the winter. A good hiking trail is nearby. Biking is fun in the fall when the hwy. traffic is less.
