Enjoy your family vacation away from home feeling “at home” in this property! And don’t waste one second more than necessary driving or walking. You’ll enjoy fabulous sunsets, ample waterfront, proximity to Bigfork and your own boat slip! This two-level home boasts three bathrooms, three bedrooms and one large “bunk style” open room. The home can easily accommodate 8 to 10 people and pets are optional upon consultation with the owner. But hopefully you didn’t come to Bigfork to enjoy the air-conditioning and you’ll take advantage of the long summer days outside on the lake or perusing the galleries and restaurants of downtown Bigfork. So many possibilities and so little time! Make this home your home away from home for your next family vacation! Some of our home’s highlights below should tempt you!!
Zen Sunsets- Find your inner peace on vacation with the sunset view back-dropped against the lake and mountains of Flathead valley. And trust an old cowboy when I say that in the 40+ years of seeing them, they always astound me! Both levels have large windows and large open style floor plans facing west allowing unobstructed views of the fabulous Flathead Sunsets. But since most of you will be outside for the sunsets; let the purple, red, and orange hues mesmerize you along the 100+ft of waterfront!
Waterfront- The lower level of the home opens up to the lake only 10 steps from the cool crisp water of Flathead Lake! Bask in the tranquil sounds of waves along the 100 ft of developed shoreline. The water is deep enough to jump right off into the water! Your vacation will be perfect enjoying the mountain melt-off and the long sunny days of the Flathead valley; but if you get the itch to do some shopping, take a stroll to the Village of downtown Bigfork.
Walk to Bigfork-This house is situated the perfect distance to downtown Bigfork. Close enough to walk with loaded bags or small children but just far enough to avoid the noise of downtown nightlife! It’s about (not exaggerating) a 10 minute walk with children (or your heavy shopping bags!). We’ve timed it many, many times! Downtown Bigfork boasts award winning restaurants, galleries and shops while still maintaining the charm and serenity of small town USA. Location, location, location!!!
Boat Slip- Bringing a boat? Park it at the house (yes, in the water!). There are two boat launches within walking distance to launch your craft, but park it in front of the house in the private boat slip. As this was one of the original properties on the Flathead’s “gold coast,” you won’t have to share the boat slip (more like an open-walled boat house) with anyone else!
Bring your boat, bring your family, maybe your dog, and heck, even bring your in-laws, and have the experience of a lifetime close to downtown and right on the lake! Don’t wait to book your memories, I mean your vacation, today! (If you don’t someone else will!)

The Bigfork Chamber has this to say about our lovely area-
“The town of Bigfork is a picturesque and charming place.

Located near by, Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall and the Swan Wilderness areas are full of wildlife and offer endless recreational opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts.
