This beautifully furnished vacation rental home features hard wood and tile floors laid with stunning hand knotted Persian carpets; a large outdoor deck overlooking a cherry and apple orchard, Flathead Lake and the dramatic mountain backdrop on the opposite shore. Sunsets are spectacular! Sheep and chickens are usually here on the farm (check before booking if this feature is important to you).

The Owner purchased this house in 1989

Why The Owner chose Bigfork

We enjoy all the different seasons as it is a change from So. Calif. where we used to live. We have good air connections here to travel conveniently. Even though we enjoy the rural living, our nearby cities have the entertainment and group activities we also enjoy (theater, music events,dancing and other clubs and groups doing may activities that we can participate in.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy swimming and boating the the summer, cross country skiing in the winter. A good hiking trail is nearby. Biking is fun in the fall when the hwy. traffic is less.

Guestbook comments from the owner

There were 9 of us. Your home is spacious and roomy, the location is convenient to everything from Glacier Park to Polson and everything in between. And of course we picnicked down on your beach several times, pit fire, bar-b-que and all. We fed your chickens, sheep and fish. For a family vacation offering something for everyone.

Perfect place for a large wedding group

  • 5 of 5
This home and Scott the owner were extremely accommodating for our 16 person group. We're all here for a wedding, all in our 20s and everybody had a blast! There were more than enough beds, we brought airbeds and didn't have to use them! More than enough pillows and sheets too. The kitchen is fantastic, tons of utensils and everything we could have needed for our big breakfasts. The lake is a short walk, with the orchard and some sheep in between, we all thought the walk was really enjoyable, no complaints! If for some reason walking isn't your thing you can drive down to the lake too. WIFI, deck, BBQ, tons of beds & plates and everything you need, more than enough showers, Scott the owner was around and very helpful.

Great Lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5
I arranged to stay here with a few college buddies for a long weekend. The weather wasn't great, but it's an awesome house for a large group who wants to get away, grill, and enjoy Flathead Lake. Plenty of good trails around to hike, too. Definitely a great getaway!

WEDDING STAY

  • 5 of 5
We came and stayed for a week for a wedding with my wife and her family. The home was perfect for what we were looking for. We had 4 family's with kids and there was plenty of room for everyone. We also brought our wakeboard boat to play on flathead lake when the wind was not blowing. I would recommend using the ramp in Bigfork for bigger boats but we did also use the one in woods bay. The owners of the property were very accommodating and easy going we truly felt at home the minute we walked in. The beach front is very cool also it does have a spot to tie up your boat but no dock which worked fine for us. We would highly recommend a say at the Lake Retreat and are looking forward to coming back someday.

College friends reunion

  • 5 of 5
This rental was a great choice, excellent value for the price. We had 14 adults and 7 kids ranging from 4 months old to 7 years old. Some had bedrooms and some tented out in the orchard and on the beach, it all worked great. Big meals were easy to make and serve indoors and out. When the babies went to bed the non-parenting adults took the party down to the fire ring by the water. Day hikes and trips to glacier were easy.

Family Reunion House

  • 5 of 5
Lake Retreat Farm was just what we were looking for to host our family reunion. Scott answered all of our questions during the rental process and was very accommodating for our specific needs. We were able to park two RVs and the rest of our party's cars without a problem. We had 19 people ranging in age from 67 to 9 months old & several dogs. The home and property was exactly as stated & pictured. Everything you could possibly need to be comfortable and host a large group was supplied. There were even enough skewers to toast your marshmallows! The week we were there was very warm and the lake was a daily routine with the paddle boards & canoe. We had also brought our own kayaks and tubes & there was plenty of room to store them on the beach. There were plenty of chairs down at the lake in which to relax and enjoy the scenery. We even enjoyed our own fireworks and the super display from the neighbors on the 4th! The walk back up to the house was useful to help burn off some of the calories consumed each day! Driving was an easy option. There were a few maintenance problems that Scott took care of as soon as he was told. Any one who owns a house understands that problems do arise even when maintained. None of these issues disrupted our fun. The knives were dull and all it took was for me to bring them up to his shop and 15 minutes later they were sharpened. The sheep and chickens were an added treat along with walking through the orchard watching the cherries ripen more each day. The deck was a daily gathering place for the entire family. We took a day trip to Glacier National Park and also enjoyed the shops in Bigfork. We will have many happy memories from our week at Lake Retreat Farm, including the grand-baby's 1st tooth, a niece turning 18 and a daughter's wedding engagement announced! Thank you Scott and Chris for letting us take over the farm and making it ours for the week. When we come back to the Flathead we will be wanting to rent the house again!
