MONTANA'S PREMIER FAMILY REUNION SPOT- 20% OFF THRU OCT!!

Bigfork Estate Rental Photos and Description

House, 7 Bedrooms + Detached Unit 2 bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 34-40)

Located in Bigfork, in the middle of Flathead Valley, Cougar Trail Ranch is the ideal site for large gatherings. It is perfectly designed for family reunions, weddings, and corporate retreats. Nestled in fourteen acres of paradise, The Ranch is surrounded by the magnificent Montana wilderness. The view of the Rockies is simply breathtaking.

The Ranch House

This beautiful vacation home is cozy though very spacious (5,000 sq. ft). The Old World style woodwork and the earthy colors give it a true feeling of a home away from home. With its fully equipped kitchen and adjacent living room with fireplace, your family and friends will be able to create complete and/or fancy meals while enjoying the amazing view of the mountains.

It was built by the owner himself and his two sons. As a general contractor and carpenter, Arlan designed his dream home for his family. Now that his family is all grown up, you have the privilege of enjoying great moments in this superb home too. Each bedroom has its own style and personality. They are all named after his children and grandchildren.

The Ranch House is equipped and set up as a fully furnished property that includes bedspreads, linens, blankets, pillows, towels and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and five-burner range top. The 8 bedrooms include 2 king, 7 queen, 2 full and 7 twin beds, as well as 2 sofa beds. There are 3 full bathrooms and a powder room. The master bathroom has a separate shower, and Jacuzzi tub. The living room has a gas fireplace, and the kitchen area a wood stove. There is a gym and a theater room that has state of the art projection system. It includes a wireless system that is connected to Wi-Fi and has TV, Netflix, hulu plus, Pandora, vudu, and other movie channels free of charge as well as all hook ups for tablets and portable computers. A speaker system is set to play music in all the main rooms of the first floor and outdoors on both the front and back decks.

The Ranch House features two large decks. On the front deck you will find a gas grill, tables and chairs for relaxing and dining. It is surrounded by gardens, a pond with a fountain, a beautiful lawn and an outstanding view of the mountains. Not to mention the fire pit for roasting marshmallows! On the back deck you will find a table and chairs for relaxing or dining. Wind down the day in the spa and have fun playing a game of foosball. On demand, we can set up our volleyball net on the side lawn.

The Cabin

A perfect place for a romantic getaway or a fun trip with the kids. Enjoy the beautiful Flathead valley and Glacier National Park. Offering space and solitude, yet close to the Ranch House, this is the ultimate private getaway that can sleep 6 people. From its front deck, you can also enjoy the spectacular view of the mountains.

The Cabin is equipped and set up as a fully furnished property that includes bedspreads, linens, blankets, pillows, towels and a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, 3 bar stools, a table and 6 chairs. It features a small living room, a master bedroom with a queen-size bed, a full bathroom, and a loft with a king size bed and a sofa bed that sleeps 2. We have to mention that to access the loft you'll need to climb a ladder (see photos). On the front deck you will find chairs, a small table and a gas grill for BBQs.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful! Very clean! We had a family reunion, 31 of us! The front porch was the main "hang out" . What a beautiful view! The kitchen was stocked full with the needs of 31 people. Very spacious. The only regret is that we didn't stay longer! Thank you for sharing your house with our family. We would love to come back someday.

Terrific!

  • 5 of 5
Outstanding place for a family reunion! Our family had 31 people staying in the main ranch home and the guest house and we loved it! The kitchen/great room was a great meeting place and the movie room with sound system was wonderful! Our only "negative" was watering grass too often esp. when playing volleyball! Our family would return. The location was perfect for going to Glacier for a day! It truly was a home away from home!!! Kathy Gebhardt

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We rented this for a family reunion that has a very diverse group of interests. The property itself is in excellent shape. The owner is very helpful. The location is in the middle of just about everything in the area, from fishing the river and lakes to sight seeing in Glacier National Park or perusing the antique and pottery shops. For large groups this is the perfect location, large enough to get everyone together and also allow some quiet time away from the family commotion.

Family Reunion Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 18 adults and 14 children loved our reunion here. We used both the main house and the guest cabin. The kids played for hours on the well manicured lawn and at the Foosball table on the back deck while the adults relaxed on the porch, in the hot tub and in the theater room. The kitchen was well equipped with tools and basic cooking supplies. Although there is not a large eating area inside, the large covered porch had plenty of tables and chairs for us to eat comfortably while enjoying the perfect Montana weather and beautiful view. We have two family members in wheelchairs and the main floor rooms accommodated them well. The owners even set up a volleyball net for us to enjoy. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were spacious and quiet. We made great memories here. It was close to many lakes, beautiful trails for running and not far from Glacier National Park (about 45 min. drive).

More than you could ask for!!!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely Perfect! The View, the home, the space, the home owners!!! We take a cousins trip every year and this was by far the most PERFECT place we've stayed. The Pictures do NO justice. There was more than enough room to accommodate our gathering of 13 people. Lot's of cookware, bedding and entertainment available at the Ranch. Arlan was very accommodating and always quick to answer our questions. GREAT Customer Service!! I would highly recommend this property to my family and friends. I WILL book this home for my future trips to Montana. Thank you Arlan!

The perfect place to get married!

  • 5 of 5
The large, perfectly manicured lawn surrounded by pines and mountains was the most lovely backdrop for our wedding. I already miss sitting on the porch with that view and the sounds of nature. We initially wanted to find a place on the lake, but I'm so happy we found this beautiful property. All of our guests had their own space, and it was so nice for us to be under one roof. We rented the guest house as well, which was newly appointed and great to have an additional private space! As a note, you'll need to climb a ladder to get into the loft. It wasn't a problem for us, as we just switched around our guests once we discovered it. Would be fun for the younger ones! Arlan and Annie were wonderful and put up flowers, a new bbq and an outdoor table before our wedding day, and Arlan was available to answer any questions and give us advice when needed. My only constructive criticism would be that there were a few areas that could have been more cleanly, but it is a large home and surely difficult to get everything perfect in between renters. The kitchen is great and stocked well-fit our friend who baked cupcakes and a cake for the wedding, allowed us to cook meals for all, and fit our caterer and all the wedding food! The fireplace, fitness room, theater room (speakers running outdoors and everywhere downstairs were a bonus!) and the design of all the bedrooms made it even more fun and cozy. I also loved having the fire pit. The property has everything you need for a large gathering and would also be perfect for a relaxing stay. The home is lovely and before we even left, we all talked about coming back every year on our anniversary. Many thanks Arlan!
