THE SENTINEL PINE IN BIGFORK—GRAND ESTATE ON 1200 FEET OF LAKEFRONT
The Sentinel Pine is one of the last truly great estates of the Old West. Its five buildings are located on 20 acres with nearly 1200 feet of waterfront on stunning Swan Lake and can accommodate up to 25 guests. Located in the northwest part of Montana, just ten minutes from the charming town of Bigfork and less than an hour from Glacier National Park, it is also easily accessible by commercial airlines. We offer spectacular accommodations and amenities in one of the loveliest private settings in America. Our majestic scenery and serene beauty in the heart of the Rocky Mountains provide an unforgettable one-of-a-kind getaway experience. The Sentinel Pine is available for rental to select groups from mid-June through mid-September on a weekly basis (depending on availability we may accept shorter stays). Our guests have access to the entire estate as we do not rent individual buildings. CRITICAL NOTE: Until VRBO recently changed their policies to prevent direct dialogue, we spoke directly with potential renters before considering a rental. With these policy changes, please alternately just email us so we can begin the process of mutually ascertaining the possibility of a fit through VRBO’s email system.
In aggregate, our five primary buildings include 14 separate bedrooms with a total of 23 beds (3 king size, 7 queen size, 11 singles, and 3 pullouts). The five buildings are comfortably set apart from one another over five beautifully manicured acres of lawn with a tennis court. There is also an adjacent 6 acre mowed field that can be used as a baseball field, volleyball court, soccer field, golf driving range, or the like. Two of the buildings also have patios and porches that face the western side of the lake and offer stunning evening sunset vistas.
Many of the guests at our prime lakefront property enjoy watersports. While we do not directly rent motor boats, rentals are available locally and we do provide docking facilities and watersports equipment.
Bigfork, less than 15 minutes from The Sentinel Pine, is one of the most charming towns of the old west. On the shore of Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake in the western half of the United States, this quaint town offers several dozen restaurants- - many of which are nationally- known and featured in major travel magazines- -and is an artists’ haven with a multitude of galleries and shops. The Bigfork Playhouse is one of the country’s finest summer-stock playhouses. Bigfork, and its sister town Whitefish 40 minutes north of it, are true “jewels” of the west.
