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. We are close to both Whitefish Mountain Resort and Blacktail Mountain Resort for those who want to have reunions in the winter, the skiing is unreal here as well as the snowmobiling. We have the perfect lodging for your large ski group and the off season pricing makes it all perfect.

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 Full 3D 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.

Great spot for a company ski trip!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location for our company ski trip! Tons of room for up to 30 people even though we were a party of 18.

Arlan met us the first night and walked us through the property. Everything looked exactly like the pictures. Was a little farther from Whitefish Big Mountain then we were originally looking for but for the price and room, it was worth a little bit of a drive to ski.

Thanks Arlan, we'll see you for the next trip to Montana!

Family Christmas vacation at the ranch

  • 5 of 5

Cougar Trail Ranch exceeded our expectations for a family Christmas getaway right from the perfect turkey dinner waiting for us upon arrival to the overall warmth and character of this very spacious, well kept home. Inside we made good use the large kitchen, theater room, workout room and hot tub. the outside is breathtaking with trails for walking or sledding. Arlan was very attentive to our needs and always available if needed. I would highly recommend this property for any family vacation.

felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Arlan made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. They had food in the fridge and on the stove to enjoy as soon as we walked in. Every room from the kitchen, lounge, theater room, bedrooms, etc were all well kept and comfortable. Arlan was always available to answer questions, and any concerns were handled immediately. Thanks for a great Christmas Vacation - Morrison-Rebolone family

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing! It is built and decorated beautifully! The attention to detail in design is flawless! We were shocked that a place so large could feel so warm and comfortable. Our family group of 17 stayed with plenty of room to spare and we felt right at home there. The owners were very accomodating to our needs as well. There was not a thing that we needed and did not have - the kitchen was well equipped to cook both gourmet and formal meals and there are many spaces to relax and wind down. We would recommend this rental to anyone and hope to return.

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.
