About Owner/manager

Our parents built this home because of the peaceful beauty that emanates 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 year 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

Why Owner/manager chose Bigfork

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.

Simply unbelievable

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. Starting with the location: right on Flathead Lake, with a dock connecting directly to the property. And the lake is stunningly beautiful. The house itself is thoughtfully designed-- most rooms open to either the backyard or a balconly, the décor is rustic and high quality-- the house is so great that there were days that we didn't leave at all. It's especially perfect for people with kids, because there's so many different spaces that is very hard for them to get bored. We definitely plan to return!

Amazing Vacation Place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely stunning. Our whole family had one of the most memorable summers ever with great friends! We paddle boarded and kayaked and in the evening made smores on the beach. The house and cabin are both super nice, clean and comfortable. At night if you leave a window open you can hear the waves on the lake rolling into the beach just at the bottom of the yard. The views are spectacular and the water is very clear. We can't wait to go back! Montana is so beautiful!

Our week in August celebrating our 60th wedding anniversary with our family members was just awesome; beautiful lake home with outstanding décor, art work, etc. and of course such a comfortable warm atmosphere. We have such treasured memories and a memorable time. We were so fortunate to have found such a great place for the occasion and highly recommended it to those planning to visit the Flathead area

Elegant yet comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our July 2016 week at the Lorang property was an amazing experience. Our family members felt so comfortable there among the exquisite details that made this residence unique. The workmanship, layout and impressive overall log design (decks, landscaping, boat dock, and Windows) all were spectacular features in a gorgeous Montana lake setting. However, many of our group felt nothing compared to the Native American art and decor that enriched the overall design. As you can tell, we had a wonderful wedding anniversary celebration with family that will long be remembered as our favorite experience in Montana! We would also like to acknowledge the personal communication with owners and managers, was, indeed remarkable. To anyone considering this property experience, do not hesitate..the Texas Group
