Bigfork condo description

This 1,263 square foot, 1 bed and 1.5 bath condo is located in the heart of Bigfork. Its two-level loft design means more room for you. This unit will comfortably sleep 6 adults.

This Riverside Roost is a companion unit to our 486 sf 'lock off' 1 bedroom 1 bath condo called the Hummingbird Haven which sleeps 4. If you need more sleeping area for your group you can also book Hummingbird Haven as well ( property id #649782), assuming it is available.

A stroll though the village of Bigfork reveals a vibrant arts culture. Along Electric Avenue there are world class art galleries, artists-in-residence, a community theater as well as summer concerts in Sliter Park. The condo is located in downtown Bigfork which features bars, shops, restaurants and live theater. It's just two blocks to Flathead Lake and the Swan River Nature Trail.

This roomy condo features wood beams, carpet and tile floors, forced-air heating and cooling, and a gas fireplace. It has a TV and DVD player, and an en suite bedroom with a queen size bed. The fully stocked kitchen has pots, pans, dishes, a microwave oven, an electric range, a refrigerator, a dishwasher, a coffee maker, glassware and flatware.

In addition to stairway access, there is a public elevator available and plenty of outside parking. Downtown street parking is also available for your use. We have free wireless internet available so you can stay connected with family and friends. (No land line phone, but cell service is widely available.)

Flathead Lake, which Bigfork Bay empties into, offers boating, fishing and many other water sports. There is also rafting, tubing, kayaking, swimming and fly fishing opportunities in the local rivers. In the winter enjoy snow shoeing and cross country skiing in and around Glacier National Park. There's skiing and snowboarding at Big Mountain in Whitefish and Blacktail Mountain in Lakeside.

In the summer hike the Swan River Nature Trail, Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall and Jewel Basin Wilderness Areas, or enjoy the many excellent golf courses, including Eagle Bend Golf Course in Bigfork. The Flathead Lake Lodge in Bigfork has horses for rent while the Majestic Valley Arena in Kalispell and the Blue Moon Cafe in Columbia Fall have rodeos to attend during the summer months. Enjoy Glacier National Park and its sister, Canada's Waterton Lakes National Park, and all they have to offer. You can immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring beauty of the wilderness they are both known for. Millions of acres of untamed wilderness surround you.

                  Car: Recommended

                  The Village of Bigfork has many avenues for adventure throughout the year.

                  During the summer months there are the rivers and lakes in the area, including Flathead Lake (the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River), Swan Lake and Echo Lake. Boating, Sailing, fishing, kayaking, swimming, and tubing are very popular activities for both visitors and locals. Surrounding Flathead Lake are many cherry orchards which means fresh sweet cherries during the summer.

                  Bigfork Village has many quaint shops for purchasing one-of-a-kind souvenirs and gifts. There is a fudge shop as well as coffee shops and full menu restaurants.

                  In the evening there are concerts in Sliter Park, and the Bigfork Summer Playhouse provides musicals and dramas throughout the summer months.

                  During the day there is plenty to do away from the water. There are hiking trails throughout the area and horses can be rented from one of the local dude ranches. There are also some challenging peaks in the area for anyone interested in mountain climbing.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2014

                  About the owner: My wife and I both grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and after many years of working in the high tech industry we started thinking about where we wanted to retire. After a long search we settled on Northwest Montana, and after buying some acreage we built our dream house overlooking Swan Lake about 10 miles outside of the village of Bigfork. We chose Montana because it had everything we wanted, boating, hiking, horses, camping, and was within an hour's drive of Glacier National Park, one of our favorite places to visit. We wanted a small town atmosphere where we could get to know everyone and Bigfork was just the right size for us. We love living here, even during the harsh winter months, and we have been able to do certain things, such as dog sledding, that we could never do in California. Even though we have only lived here for 5 years, we can't imagine living anywhere else!

                  Why the Owner Chose Bigfork:
                  We started looking for a vacation rental property in 2013. Bigfork is a very popular resort area, and there were a number of rental properties for sale, but we wanted to buy in the best possible location,which meant as close to downtown as possible. We didn't want a large unit that would cost a lot to maintain and that we would also have to charge a lot for. A 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath two level condo was the perfect size for us and at the end of 2013 we were lucky enough to find a condo for sale near downtown. Downtown Bigfork is the hub for activity in this area, and there are lots of things to see and do there. It's an easy drive to Kalispell, Polson or Glacier National Park, and if someone is interested in water sports it's the perfect spot on Flathead Lake. We have a boat and enjoy spending the day on the local lakes. We couldn't find a better location for us to have a vacation rental.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The best thing about this condo is that you can walk out the front door, cross the street, and be in the heart of the downtown area. Just stroll down Electric Avenue and enjoy the shops, bars, restaurants and live theater available throughout the year. You can walk south on Electric Avenue, across the steel bridge, and spend some time either listening to a band in Sliter Park or letting your kids enjoy the playground area. Head north on Electric Avenue, turn right on Grand Avenue and walk up the hill to the trail head for the 2 mile Swan River Nature Trail. It's a leisurely hike that takes you along the beautiful Swan River. After you're done hiking you can head back into town and have an adult beverage at one of the two local bars, or grab something to eat at one of the many local eateries. You can now wander through the shops and galleries looking the the perfect gift for that special someone. Being located so close to downtown means you can walk to anywhere you want without having to get in your car.
