Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

Why the Owner Chose Bigfork, MT, USA:
We searched all over the state of Montana for property but when we saw the view of this home on the cover of Home Seekers magazine in 1994 we were awestruck. We have loved every minute of every season in this beautiful home while we vacationed with our two children.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Echo Lake Retreat is very unique as it is situated on a peninsula with water (and swimming docks) on either side of the property. If you are looking for shade or sun you can find it. The view of the mountains constantly changes throughout the day which is spectacular.
