About the property

Close enough to town, yet secluded enough to relax!

Our home, is your home. We would like to make available and welcome your family in while enjoying the serene mountain community of Bigfork and the Flathead Valley. Close to anything and everything your heart desires! Only minutes from Downtown Bigfork Village where things are a little "faster paced," (short drive to Whitefish, Somers, Lakeside and Kalispell). Or, just stay home, kick back and relax in the yard or on one of the decks or screened porch. So many things to do, and usually not enough time.

About Wendy Kingery - Owner

Wanted a retreat for family and friends to come and visit the amazing Flathead Valley area that we love and enjoy so much! We wanted a remote, country setting, for our kids and pets to run and play, kick back and relax room, yet close to town and things we need. It is close to all of our favorite outdoor activities, close to town, yet far enough away that we can enjoy the peaceful mountain solitude, air and sounds as well as local "critters" to come and visit.

Wendy Kingery - Owner purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Wendy Kingery - Owner chose Flathead Lake

Fits our families 'Montana living,' wants and needs. Close to all our favorite activities, friends and family. Offers tons of room and space to entertain guests and just enjoy the holiday! Glacier Park...ONLY 45 minutes away with an awesome view for the drive! Winter Skiing at Whitefish's Big Mountain or Lakeside's Blacktail Mountain...only 30-45 minutes away. Summer hiking at Jewel Basin, Big Mountain and so much more throughout Flathead Valley and down the Swan River Valley.

What makes this cabin unique

Are you a pilot? Want to fly yourself to visit the valley? Well, we are only 1/4 mile from the public access Ferndale Airfield (53U). This is a great little airstrip that is very well maintained. Contact the facility directly to make arrangements for landing and storage and you are set to go! Or, Kalispell City Airport (S27) is also available 15 miles away and overnight 'parking' available through Red Eagle Aviation.

Only 3 miles from 2 different rental companies for kayaks, paddle boards and/or canoes, one place in the winter offer dog sledding! The other also offers boat rentals, jet skiis, ATV/UTV's, bikes and much more! Both are very reasonably priced and very accommodating!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful. A few minutes from both Big Fork and the lake the house is just as listed. Quiet, on several acres with open and enclosed decks. Perfect setting. Very large rooms. Top quality furniture and beds. Great cabin feel in what is a beautiful home.

Warm, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the "cozy cabin in the woods," once we found it -- Apple maps took us to a gravel road a few blocks away! Google Maps found the property reliably. Deer, including a fawn, were in the woods to greet us as we rolled in.

The cabin is comfortably appointed and clean, and has three bedrooms that sleep 2 each, a table for 6, and reclining sofas seating 5. The kitchen had most of the basics one would expect easily at hand, and it was equipped with wifi. Unfortunately, the wifi was not working during our stay, but on this trip we could get by without it. We did contact the owner about the wifi, and while it wasn't fixed during our stay and the message when they called back didn't reach us, we were confident they were going to address the issue as we left.

The cabin is within a reasonable drive of Glacier National Park and Flathead Lake, among other sights, and the owners are happy to offer tips if you contact them before heading out to sightsee.

If you are from distant places, it may help to know that there are a few quirks about more rural properties like this one, such as a need to take garbage to a collection facility (and not store it outside) and rules/restrictions about fire use indoors and out during dry periods. It pays to be a little bit flexible as guests! The owners were great about communicating the particulars in advance as much as was possible.

We'd love to stay again if we find ourselves in Montana.

Great stay outside Glacier NP

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights while we visited Glacier and the Flathead lake area. The house was in immaculate condition and smelled amazing when we opened the door! Everything we needed for our stay was made available, even instructions how to keep the cabin cool. Bed was very comfortable and it was very quiet area yet close to restaurants and lovely Flathead lake. Wendy was easy to work with and we would definitely stay again if in the area.

Would stay again!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here in July with another friends family, so there were four adults and two toddlers total. We enjoyed have the privacy and quiet this rental offered. While not on the lake, it offers a very short and scenic drive. There is a book in the cabin that gives plenty of information on local activities. I have never seen a rocking futon before but it is amazing and I want one for my porch!

Map quest did not send us to the right location, but it is very easy to find with directions given. the only other negative was that the upstairs rooms where too hot one of the nights, but it was a very hot day, 93+.

Overall the cabin was very clean and welcoming. The price is very fair for what you get.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with our family during my cousin's wedding weekend. Home was very comfortable and obvious you put effort into making it a nice retreat to enjoy. Kids appreciated the games. Kitchen was functional and communications were detailed and appreciated. Thank you again.
