Take a break from civilization on a calm lake in Bigfork, Montana


Ready to leave the hubbub behind? This idyllic 13-acre retreat is located above Lake of the Woods in Bigfork, MT.

If you’ve never heard of the lake, it’s no accident. In fact, that’s a big part of the appeal.

The tranquil lake encompasses 61 acres and sits at an elevation of approximately 3,000 feet. The lot sizes are generous. The neighbors have free rein.

We know that fishermen catch one or two trout in the clear waters. Porch keepers come to understand why they call Montana Big Sky Country.

A wrap-around deck along both sides of the back of the house extends the view from the two-story home, which is clad in planed lumber and tapers off for an update to the look of a log cabin.

The porch overlooks a terrace on the lower level. From here the lawn leads to a sheltered stone walled patio with a fireplace. All that’s missing are the kebabs and marshmallows. Beyond is a hot tub.

Interiors have a sophisticated Montana aesthetic with heavy wooden ceiling beams, white walls, and wood floors. Exposed beams and half-timbered windows unite the look of the living room, dining room and open concept kitchen.

Floor-to-ceiling glass doors and side panels, along with windows at the top of the roof, frame the view of the lake, woods, and distant mountains. A stone fireplace with a hearth and bench seat creates a focal point for the living room.

The kitchen has a central island with bar seating. Dark blue cabinets, a subway tile backsplash, farmhouse sink, and stainless steel appliances complete the look.

The main suite on the ground floor has a window seat and a door leading to the wrap-around deck. The adjoining bathroom contains a hammered black metal tub and a separate shower.

On the ground floor is a family room, another bedroom, a dormitory with built-in storage and beds for eight, a laundry room and a bathroom. There are a total of three bedrooms and three bathrooms in the 2,480 square feet of living space.

The wooded site goes down to the shore and the crystal clear waters of the lake.
