While you appear to be isolated in the wilderness at the Chickadee Chalet in the heart of Bigfork you are but one block from downtown shops, galleries, fine restaurants, live music and dancing and the Bigfork Summer Playhouse with live theater and professional productions that change throughout the summer with none of the hustle-bustle of a large city. Downtown Bigfork is also the center of all outdoor activities including fishing or sightseeing charters, bike rentals, kayak, canoe and paddle board, ski boats and jet ski rentals. Minutes away from the condo is the Swan River Nature Trail that runs the length of the famous 'Wild Mile' rapids. Run, walk, bike or fly fish along this beautiful hidden trail. The Eagle Bend Golf Course a 500 acre 27 hole master planned community is located 2 miles from downtown and offers the avid golfer the best in the valley. Eagle Bend is a public course and includes a restaurant and pro shop on site. Adjacent to the course is the Montana Athletic Club housing a complete work out center, pool, personal trainers, racquetball and tennis courts.
The Swan River flows into Bigfork Bay and out into Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi surrounded by alpine mountains. You can charter sight-seeing and fishing boats and enjoy the beautiful shoreline or rent personal watercraft and enjoy the scenery at your leisure.
Your vacation would not be complete without a day trip through Glacier Park and its many historic lodges. As you travel over the Going to the Sun Highway and the breathtaking views of The Big Sky of Montana you may see mountain goats, moose, elk, grizzly and black bear, big horn sheep, pristine high mountain lakes, many waterfalls and much more too numerous to mention. Your trip through Glacier Park and its majestic views will be one of the greatest memories you will ever have.
In the winter, the Flathead Valley is famous for its world-class skiing and wide range of winter activities. There are two ski resorts in the area including the local favorite Whitefish Mountain Resort and the family-friendly Blacktail Mountain Ski Area.
