Our parents built this home because of the peaceful beauty the eminates from the lake and throughout the country side. We lived in NY and this was the perfect escape and family getaway. We put away the remote controls, dusted off our hiking boots and spent entire days outdoors appreciating nature and spending time with family. Our mother was an award winning architectural designer and this home was featured in log home magazines in 1994. Our family spent 3 months out of the yaer living in this home, and once our parents retired, more or less, they spent half the year here.

My brother and I now have this treasure and we are excited to share it with you and hear your stories.

Owner/manager purchased this house in 1993

We chose this location because of its lakefront land, amazing sunsets, and proximity to ski mountains and Glacier National Park. We also fell in love with the small mountain charm of Bigfork town with its famous artists and delicious restaurants.

Your own private 5 star home by the lake

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 12, 2014
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
For us this was our first trip to Montana. And boy! We are spoiled after renting this house. First, the the drive from the airport is simple and we had no problem finding the house. From the moment we entered the house, we knew this vacation was going to be unique. The house is simply a private five star hotel by the lake. And when I say by the lake, I mean you have your own little piece of heaven all to yourself. Just open the beautiful doors to the backyard and walk ten steps to your own dock and jump into the water! The house was immaculately clean and the landscapes are so beautiful. A mean, a huge pine tree welcomes everyone at the main entrance! Super country sweet! Also, we all had our own private rooms and bathrooms, since the house is huge. The local supermarket is 15 minutes away, as well as good restaurants, pharmacy, and the marina. So, there was never a dull moment and you always have easy access to all, including Glazier Park which is like 30 minutes away. But, honestly, just sitting at the dock or on one of the balconies, with a glass of wine at hand, that was simply enough for us. The view is simply unbelievable. Which was great, because some in the group preferred a mellow afternoon while others went hiking. So, there is something for everyone to enjoy. We are already planning our next trip to Montana all because of this house. Are we are planning on making it a yearly trip. Total privacy, your own piece of the lake, beautiful setting and five star accommodations.
