Bigfork lodge description
This amazing lodge vacation home offers all you need for your authentic Montana experience. Situated at the very foot of the Swan Mountains the grace of the forest engulfs you as you drive through the whimsical entrance gate to Grizzly Blair Ranch. The log style home is exquisitely decorated and furnished in Western comfort and charm in an open and inviting floor plan that affords room for family laughter as well as a separate wing for multiple generations to spread out.
Vaulted ceilings in the open dining/living/kitchen area allow full view of the wall of windows for enjoying the abundant wildlife who call this place home too. The deck offers summer seating and year-round barbequing on a gas grill. The media room offers comfortable theater seating and a large screen, perfect whether your viewing choice is The Lion King or The King and I.
Five bedrooms sport an assortment of king, queen, and twin beds that are all “just right”. Two full bathrooms are jack-and-jill arrangements to accommodate four bedrooms, while the master suite has another full bath, including a luxurious jetted tub. An additional powder room is located near the main living area.
Although completely private and secluded, Grizzly Blair Ranch is just minutes from the village of Bigfork and Flathead Lake. The Swan River is just seconds away for floating, fishing, and kayaking. Glacier National Park, Whitefish Mountain Resort, and Blacktail Ski Area are all less than an hour away. And hiking and cross-country skiing in the Jewel Basin Wilderness is right down the drive. We have been here a long time and are happy to share our local secrets for all that Northwest Montana has to offer.
The Blair family has been enjoying their “Montana home” for nearly ten years. Grandbabies in other zip codes are calling them back to their roots, at least part-time----a perfect opportunity to share this amazing home with other families. Call today to find out how we can help you plan your Montana vacation.
