Private dock located right in front of the home for your boats, jet skis, and other watercraft (rentals available at nearby marina). Sitting and lounging out on the lake and diving in for a swim is highly recommended!

Large wrap-around deck and lower level patio for outside lounging, barbecuing, dining and enjoying the surrounding views.

Attached 2-car garage, as well as additional parking and storage areas.

Located on over half an acre of private wooded land, frequented by deer, wild turkeys, and other wildlife.

Winter sports and activities are nearby the home, including downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. Year-round access over paved roads that are regularly maintained and plowed.

Family get-away, to strengthen bonds and have a really fun time!

Writer's retreat. Quiet reflection, with ever-changing infinity views.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I purchased this home many years ago with my mother, and we enjoyed it very much over the years. My wife (Cynthia) and I (Bob) hope that you and your family experience it as a fun and inspiring family retreat. In the photo are my wife and I after an invigorating round of cross-country skiing! Highly recommended!! Our very best! Bob & Cynthia

Why the Owner Chose Bigfork, MT, USA:
As a youngster, I dreamed of owning a million acre ranch with millions of cattle, next to mountains as high as the sky, and crossed by rivers with all sorts of monsters in it. Okay, I was a kid with an active imagination. But through the years, I have wanted to own land and a home in a special and lovely place. I was fortunate to get that opportunity in the summer of 1995 when I traveled with my mother to Montana to see if that special and lovely place could be found. The thing about Montana is that just about everywhere you look has an amazing and eye-capturing quality, so even on a limited budget we were not short of homes to consider. Nice people, charming towns, and beautiful views abounded. But at the first moment I walked into my Echo Lake home, that was it. You will know what I mean the first moment you walk into the home, as well. A sparkling island dotted lake sprawled out in front of me with a mountain range draped in patches of white clouds and orange reflections of sunlight as an immediate backdrop. That was it, I knew I had found that lovely and special place which I would keep in my life and with my family forever. Our affection for this attractive and comfortable home, and its compelling surroundings, has grown even stronger over the years. And, for me, is a dream come true.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Warm water lake (most lakes in Montana are quite cold!), stunningly beautiful setting, quite abundant in largemouth bass (for viewing from dock and fishing), wildlife visitors of all sorts come by the home (fox, goose, squirrel, deer, turkeys), recreational lake...lots of fun!
