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.

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.
