Property description


The Flathead Lake Lighthouse property includes a three story lighthouse as the main house and optional guest house for large families on beautiful Flathead Lake, about 7 mile south of Bigfork, Montana.
 
Flathead Lake is the largest fresh water lake in the West.  It is approximately 35 miles long and 10-15 miles wide and provides unsurpassed sailing, boating, fishing and entertainment opportunities.

 
The Lighthouse
?The Lighthouse is an iconic home on Flathead Lake that has views from Whitefish Mountain in the north all the way to Polson on the south end of Flathead Lake.  It sleeps up to 8 people.  It has three bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a media room, kitchen, dining room, living room, loft and a three story lighthouse with a 'widow's walk' around the highest floor of the lighthouse itself.  The master bedroom suite has a queen bed and the other two bedrooms have a queen and a twin trundle bed.  Additionally, the media room has a queen pull out sofa bed that sleeps two. Two adjoining decks, of about 500 square feet, project from the west side of the house to provide areas for lounging, sunning, dining, and observing water front activities that go past on the lake below.  The lake is accessed by a electric tram that takes you effortlessly to the 100' dock below.  The dock provides boating, swimming, kayaking, and fishing access right on the property.

 
Bigfork, Montana is a year round resort community on the north shore of Flathead Lake, about 20 miles south of Glacier International Airport and 45 minutes south of Glacier National Park.  Bigfork sits at the base of the front range of the Rocky Mountains and world famous hiking destination, Jewel Basin.  Jewel Basin provides easy access to spectacular views of 100+ miles of Rocky Mountain peaks and excellent hiking trails.
 
Bigfork's many summer activities include:
?a.)  Golf - Eagle Bend Golf Club is a spectacular 27 hole course in Bigfork and is supplemented with 10 additional resort courses within 45 minutes drive.
?b.)  Summer Theater - The Bigfork Summer Playhouse offers a nationally acclaimed professional theater, with musical performances 6 nights a week during the summer season.
?c.)  Restaurants - Bigfork offers a full range of casual to fine dining experiences for visitors and residences alike.  From sushi to Mexican, Italian and Montana steaks and freshly caught local trout, Bigfork offers dining to satisfy every member of your family
?d.) Flathead Lake - America's largest western fresh water lake is a boating, sailing and fishing paradise.  It has 160 miles of shoreline and over 200 square mile of surface with fresh, clean pure Rocky Mountain spring and river fed water.
?e.)  Wilderness access - Glacier Park, arguably America's wildest and most spectacular National Park, and the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area, America's largest wilderness area combine to offer unparalleled wilderness experiences.  Hiking, fishing, horseback riding, wildlife observation combine to provide daily personal discovery of America's Last Best Place!



The Cliff House (Optional Guest House)
The Cliff House sits above and behind the Lighthouse.  It sleeps up to 7 people in three bedrooms and two bath rooms.  The Master bedroom suite is on the highest level with a queen bed, and a small private deck for morning coffee.  The two bedrooms on the lowest level share a bath room.  One has a queen bed and the other has a twin/double bunk bed perfect for three children.  The middle floor has a kitchen/living room/dining room space decorated in French Country style.  A large deck from the living room overlooks the Lake and the Lighthouse.  The Cliff House has no direct access to the lake. That access is reserved for the renters occupying the Lighthouse.  It is the one property with a lawn to provide a place for family fun activities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Denny and Monica Sabo are long time residents of the quaint mountain village of Bigfork, where we chose to retire, raise our youngest son, and enjoy all that Montana offers for hiking, fishing, boating, kayaking, skiing, and all other year round outdoor activities. While the kids are grown and gone, we now love spending time playing at the lake and in the mountains with our grandkids.

Why the Owner Chose Bigfork:
We transformed a lake cabin into the Flathead Lake Lighthouse, because of our love of sailing. It has been a labor of love, that we love sharing with our many guests and renters over the years. We have included many nautical details in the home, which can transport you to any favorite beach through it's relaxing lakeside ambiance. It's the perfect place to relax and unwind from your busy work lives and make memories with your families and friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Lighthouse is situated close to Bigfork for fine dining and shopping experiences in it's many galleries and shops. Yet the quiet of the lake will beckon you to sit back and enjoy the beautiful mountain sunsets, while sipping a favorite beverage on the deck overlooking the lake.
