                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1994

                      Why the Owner Chose Bigfork:
                      We searched all over the state of Montana for property but when we saw the view of this home on the cover of Home Seekers magazine in 1994 we were awestruck. We have loved every minute of every season in this beautiful home while we vacationed with our two children.
