Five minutes from Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. Many rivers & streams closeby to tempt the fisherman and boater. Boat rentals and guided fishing tour companies are also located in Bigfork & Woods Bay. Glacier National Park is a beautiful drive and a gem everyone must see. Bigfork has wonderful shops,galleries, many excellent restaurants to satisfy any taste, and a live theater. Hiking Jewel Basin is a popular escape into the beauty that surrounds this area. Many places to bike, hike, or just walk. Swan River Nature Trail follows the Swan River for a scenic and easy stroll or bike ride. A drive around Flathead Lake past cherry orchards on the east side to dry hills on the west gives you a great view of where you started out from with a backdrop of the Swan Range across the lake. Golfing at Eagle Bend Golk Club, a fitness center, and public tennis courts are other options to consider. A great place to stay for Bigfork's events including Whitewater, Dragon Boat Races, Crown of the Continent, Spartan Race, Festival of the Arts, Bigfork Christmas Parade and Fourth of July Parade.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My husband & I moved here in 1989 from Kauai, HI. A builder by trade, he wanted to build something non traditional. The cabin was constructed from logs on the property. All furniture, the picnic table, and cabinets were made by us from logs off the property and milled on my husband's sawmill. I was the sander/painter and made curtains & pillows. A long but fulfilling project.

Why the Owner Chose Bigfork, MT, USA:
Having met in Aspen we moved to HI. in 1971. After nearly 20 yrs farming on Kauai we decided we needed a change. We looked at Colorado, but it was getting too busy. After a drive through this area, it seemed perfect, less hectic and beautiful.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The most common remarks we get from guests are how quiet and peaceful their stay is, how comfortable and cozy our cabin is, and how much they enjoy watching the wildlife everyday.
