The Flathead Lake Lighthouse is located on beautiful Flathead Lake, about 7 mile south of Bigfork, Montana.

The Lighthouse is an iconic home on Flathead Lake that has views from Whitefish Mountain in the north all the way to Polson on the south end of Flathead Lake.  It sleeps up to 8 people.  It has three bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a media room, kitchen, dining room, living room, loft and a three story lighthouse with a 'widow's walk' around the highest floor of the lighthouse itself.  The master bedroom suite has a queen bed and the other two bedrooms have a queen and a twin trundle bed.  Additionally, the media room has a queen pull out sofa bed that sleeps two. Two adjoining decks, of about 500 square feet, project from the west side of the house to provide areas for lounging, sunning, dining, and observing water front activities that go past on the lake below.  The lake is accessed by a electric tram that takes you effortlessly to the 100' dock below.  The dock provides boating, swimming, kayaking, and fishing access right on the property.

 

Bigfork, Montana is a year round resort community on the north shore of Flathead Lake, about 20 miles south of Glacier International Airport and 45 minutes south of Glacier National Park.  Bigfork sits at the base of the front range of the Rocky Mountains and world famous hiking destination, Jewel Basin.  Jewel Basin provides easy access to spectacular views of 100+ miles of Rocky Mountain peaks and excellent hiking trails.

 

Bigfork's many summer activities include:

a.)  Golf - Eagle Bend Golf Club is a spectacular 27 hole course in Bigfork and is supplemented with 10 additional resort courses within 45 minutes drive.

b.)  Summer Theater - The Bigfork Summer Playhouse offers a nationally acclaimed professional theater, with musical performances 6 nights a week during the summer season.

c.)  Restaurants - Bigfork offers a full range of casual to fine dining experiences for visitors and residences alike.  From sushi to Mexican, Italian and Montana steaks and freshly caught local trout, Bigfork offers dining to satisfy every member of your family

d.) Flathead Lake - America's largest western fresh water lake is a boating, sailing and fishing paradise.  It has 160 miles of shoreline and over 200 square mile of surface with fresh, clean pure Rocky Mountain spring and river fed water.

e.)  Wilderness access - Glacier Park, arguably America's wildest and most spectacular National Park, and the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area, America's largest wilderness area combine to offer unparalleled wilderness experiences.  Hiking, fishing, horseback riding, wildlife observation combine to provide daily personal discovery of America's Last Best Place!

About Monica

Denny and Monica Sabo are long time residents of the quaint mountain village of Bigfork, where we chose to retire, raise our youngest son, and enjoy all that Montana offers for hiking, fishing, boating, kayaking, skiing, and all other year round outdoor activities. While the kids are grown and gone, we now love spending time playing at the lake and in the mountains with our grandkids.

Monica purchased this house in 2004

Why Monica chose Flathead Lake

We transformed a lake cabin into the Flathead Lake Lighthouse, because of our love of sailing. It has been a labor of love, that we love sharing with our many guests and renters over the years. We have included many nautical details in the home, which can transport you to any favorite beach through it's relaxing lakeside ambiance. It's the perfect place to relax and unwind from your busy work lives and make memories with your families and friends.

What makes this house unique

The Lighthouse is situated close to Bigfork for fine dining and shopping experiences in it's many galleries and shops. Yet the quiet of the lake will beckon you to sit back and enjoy the beautiful mountain sunsets, while sipping a favorite beverage on the deck overlooking the lake.

Wonderful location on Flathead Lake

  • 4 of 5

Wow, we had a great vacation at the Lighthouse . Flathead is such a wonderful place and the Lighthouse made it even better. The views from the deck are amazing. The deck and private dock were the evening spots for everyone to enjoy and share the day's adventures. Monica had everything in good order for us and they have done a great job of decorating and designing their homes. Thank you Monica, this was one of the best vacations ever!

Beautiful home and amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Our family (7 all 17 yrs and older) really enjoyed the home, the tram and the dock. The views were incredible from all of the decks in the Lighthouse. Thanks for a great week.

Breathtaking Views!

  • 5 of 5

The lighjthouse and guest house are amazing. Monica was always quick with a response. We had a bit of travel delay and did not get into the house till 2 a.m. but Monica was very helpful and we arrived to a home with the lights on. There was a welcome aboard package which included coffee (much neded after 24 hours of travel) along with breakfast scones and cookies which were delicious. My husband and I came from Maine. My family is all located in Montana. This was our first family vacation which included 14 of us. There was more than enough room between the two houses for everybody to spread out. The view from the decks are amazing. Both houses were fully stocked. Plenty of beach towels for the kids and adults who were brave enough to take a dip in the lake. Plenty of literature at the house on the surrounding area, which resteraunts to try. We tried the pizza place and the pizza was fabulous. Big Fork is just a few minutes down the road and has a very nice grocery store. There was a little convience store closer to the property that also came in handy. If you are looking for a place to just to hang out and enjoy the view look no further. The dock was great for fishing and just haning out at the end of the day.

Monica - Thank You so much for an amazing place to have a first family vacation. Your home is just that a home to come and relax. Thomson / Kober 2016

Incredible stay at the lighthouse!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was blown away by our entire stay. The pics don't do justice to the views of the lake from this home and the beach down below. In addition to a great home the owners went far above and beyond expectations. Our contact from the beginning was so good that I actually thought it may be a fake listing. Once we arrived we learned they were in fact just genuinely good people. We've stayed in many vrbo's and this is the best stocked home we've stayed. Good selection in the kitchen from appliances to the food basics for cooking/baking. We were grateful that we checked the stock of the home before we did our big shopping trip. Our 6 and 4 yr olds will ensure we find a way to stay here again and we as parents can't wait.

Monica- We will send you some pics of the sunsets we took from your property to post. ;)

Lighthouse rental summer 2015

  • 5 of 5

We rented the lighthouse this summer and it was an amazing location close to town but with the feel of being millions of miles away! The views are spectacular and sunset photos are beautiful at this location. We enjoyed seeing a play in Bigfork , The Addams Family, and arrived to a sold out playhouse. Luckily we had the guidance to buy tickets online well in advance and would encourage other travelers to plan accordingly if they would like to enjoy such an event in Bigfork. Plan your dinner reservations before the show well in advance as many venues on theater night are fully booked and most restaurants have very limited seating capacity. Lovely time and I am sure we will vacation in Bigfork again soon! Thank you for your hospitality Sabo family!

The Lighthouse on Flathead Lake proved to be a excellent choice for our family. We had a fabulous time visiting the surrounding areas, but the house and lake were so perfect that we had a hard time leaving to explore. The Sabo's were the perfect hosts. The house and the guest house were so beautifully appointed and had everything we needed. We never wanted the vacation to end. We made unforgettable memories and can't wait to visit again. Thank you for much for sharing your home (and cherry trees) with us!
