Bigfork chateau / country house description

Nestled between tall evergreens and situated against the Swan Mountain Range, sits this lovely craftsman style guesthouse, we call our “tree house.”
Guests will enjoy this magnificent peaceful space as a romantic get-away or a small family retreat destination.

With enough room to accommodate up to two couples and three to four children, guests will find a comfy queen size bed, thick queen size futon, a cozy loft for children to play, read or sleep, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a therapeutic steam shower, washer and dryer, and a large deck to enjoy outside dining with incredible panoramic views of the mountains and its wildlife residents. Wireless Internet service and online streamed Netflix movies are also available to guests.

Just outside the door, guests will find immediate access to mountain trails and nearby access to rafting put-ins along the Swan River. Guests are also invited to share the beautiful surrounding grounds, a lovely waterfall studded pond, tree swing, hammock, and private mountain bike trails.

We also encourage our guests to visit with our goats, chickens, and special livestock guardian dogs (just beware of the electric fence), see our four-season greenhouse, and to sample our fresh eggs and any of the organic fruits and veggies grown on our property.

This property is incredibly special and uniquely showcases the majestic qualities of each season. On any day one can spot a variety of wildlife traversing the land, sightings could include deer, elk, moose, foxes, bobcat, raccoon, squirrels, bald eagles, ducks, geese, hawks, herons, owls and many other birds, most notably the wild swan. White Tail Deer tend to be the most common but are the most lovely and peaceful sighting. Occasionally, bear, wolf, and mountain lion are seen but our big guardian dogs keep these larger predators off our property.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: Originally from Southern California, we purchased this property to create a quiet self sufficient and sustainable life for our small family. We are raising goats, chickens, livestock guardian dogs, and organic fruits and veggies.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bigfork:
                  This property is incredibly special and uniquely showcases the majestic qualities of each season. We love the variety of wildlife traversing the land, including deer, elk, moose, foxes, bobcat, raccoon, squirrels, bald eagles, ducks, geese, hawks, herons, owls and many other birds, most notably the wild swan. White Tail Deer tend to be the most common but are the most lovely and peaceful sighting. Occasionally, bear, wolf, and mountain lion are seen but our big guardian dogs keep these larger predators off our property. If our property is booked for the dates you are seeking in August or September, we do manage a friend's property which has some similar characteristics. Please see VRBO listing #485999

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  We fell in love with this beautiful private property, the wilderness setting, and its unique craftsman style structures, and you will too!
