This cozy, charming house is going to win your heart with the amazing outdoor space to entertain, be with family, and enjoy the lake! Located on Echo Lake with 150' of water frontage and a private boat dock (not usable in early summer due to low water levels), you'll never want to go inside. There is a cafe style sitting area with wood burning fireplace and makeshift bar seating around a tree, steps lead down to a playground set and firepit, and then finally down to more seating on the dock - all amazing locations to start and end your day around your adventures. The home itself has 4 bedrooms, a large living room, 1 bathroom, kitchen/dining area with a table for 6, a small study and a laundry room. There is a boat rental at the corner of Montana Highway 83 and Echo Lake Road, right across from Echo Lake Cafe which is a must try!
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. Whitefish Mountain Resort was recently ranked #3 in the West by Ski Magazine readers! Visitors to the area can also enjoy ice fishing on Flathead Lake, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing in Glacier National Park, and snowmobiling with one of the local outfitters.
In the summer, enjoy all the water sports imaginable at Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi in the lower 48! Glacier National Park is also close by with the breathtaking Going-To-The-Sun Road, Lake McDonald, and 70+day hikes! Make sure you take time to experience downtown Bigfork boasting shops, galleries, restaurants and the Bigfork Summer Playhouse. There are activities for everyone from hiking the Swan River Nature Trail, exploring the Jewel Basin Wilderness Area, fishing the many lakes & rivers or golfing at any of the exceptional courses, including Eagle Bend Golf Course.
