Situated on a 1.5 acre penisula, this 5-bedroom house has breathtaking views from every window. With glass walls on each end of the house, you will be awestruck by the spectacular sunrise over the Swan Mountains from the east, and the majestic sunset from the west. The architecture of this home enables you to be a participant in nature, not a spectator.
Newly remodeled with reclaimed barn wood and hand-picked stones, you will not want to leave the property. The kitchen is equipped with custom cabinets, stone counter tops and the latest appliances. Everyone will enjoy family meals around the hand-made, 9-foot kitchen table complete with tree knots still intact. Every bedroom is complete with down-filled pillows, cotton blankets from Germany, and flannel duvets. After a restful sleep in the master bedroom, wake to wondrous views of the Swan Mountains and a heated floor in the master bathroom. And, in case of a rain, the family room on the first floor is equipped with a 42' flat-screen TV.
Although the amenities will comfort you, this natural backdrop will create memories and experiences of a life time. As the eagles search for their morning breakfast, take the kayaks out and explore the wonders of this gorgeous alpine lake. Afterwards, set your chairs on the dock and swim in the warm, clean, spring-fed waters---no wetsuits required. Bike to Bigfork with the horse farms along the Swan River as your guide. As the sun begins to set, start your grill and let the kids try their hands at ping pong or badminton on the grassy green yard. And if you're here to fish, Echo Lake is known for its Large-Mouth Bass and Northern Pike.
This home can be enjoyed during the winter season too. Ice fishing, cross-country skiing, and dog sledding can be enjoyed by all. And if you're here to downhill ski, Whitefish and Blacktail Mountains are only 45 minutes away.
This house has been a gift to our family and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Thanks for taking a look. We hope to hear from you.

It was love at first site. The moment we saw this property (which was in February 2004), there was no turning back. It is a unique location with views of nature that we have not experienced anywhere else. Living on the East Coast with four children, we are not able to spend our summers here like we did in the past. We hope to share the magic of this property with like-minded people who want their families to re-conncet with each other while experiencing the gift of nature.
You get the beauty of the mountains and the warm alpine lake with the comforts of fine dining, art and theater 3 miles away. Bigfork is home to the Bigfork Theater and many fine dining establishment. We also enjoy walking 1.5 miles to Echo Lake Cafe for breakfast along a biking path. And just down the street (less than a mile) is Swan Mountain Yoga located in a remodeled barn. This place really has it all.
