Property 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 condo has a living room, kitchen and a dining area. It also has rear deck with a BBQ. There is a large loft ensuite bedroom with a queen size bed, full bath and a sitting area. Includes a fully equipped kitchen including a stove, microwave oven, refrigerator, coffee maker, dishwasher and laundry center (washer and dryer). Dogs are welcome, but there is a small pet fee and you must let us know in advance

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.

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 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 at Blacktail Mountain in Lakeside. Don't miss the 4th of July fireworks on the lake, and the free summer concerts in Sliter Park.

In the summer hike the Swan River Trail, Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall and Jewel Basin Wilderness Areas, or enjoy 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 Falls have rodeos to attend during the summer months. Enjoy Glacier National Park and its sister, Canada's Waterton Lakes 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. If you are into hiking, Jewel Basin is a great area to explore, but keep your eye out for bears!

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 started thinking about where we wanted to retire. After a long search we settled on Northwest Montana, and after buying some property we built our dream home 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 a few 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 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 have to charge a lot for. A 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo was the perfect size for us and would complement our original vacation rental which happens to be right next door. C

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 downtown Bigfork. 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 wander through the shops and art 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.
