Bigfork, MT – “Where Flathead Lake Begins”

Bigfork Village is nestled between two rivers at the north end of Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. Endless recreational opportunities are waiting on 191 square miles of sparkling waters, hundreds of hiking trails with abundant wildlife along tree-lined shores. A collection of waterfront properties around Flathead Lake offer a diverse lifestyle of riverfront and lakefront living. Often called “the banana belt” of Montana, the East Shore’s mild climate is ideal for growing the famous Flathead sweet cherries savored all over the world.

Bigfork’s story began over 100 years ago as a logging and farming community. The thick timber provided surrounding sawmills with lumber that produced over 600,000 railroad ties per year. From the hardworking and entrepreneurial spirit of common folks, Bigfork still remains the unique village that it was born to be and a wonderful place to own a home.

A stroll though Bigfork reveals a vibrant arts culture. Along Electric Avenue, so named as the first street to receive electricity from the powerhouse that still operates, world class art galleries, artists-in-residence, and live theatre await. World renowned, the Bigfork Playhouse celebrates 57 years of live and professional theater, heralding audiences from around the globe. An evening at the theatre, preceded by a gourmet meal from one of Bigfork’s fine restaurants, is a treat to be remembered.

Minutes from Bigfork is Eagle Bend championship golf course. Glacier Sotheby’s International Realty offers a large collection of golf homes within our Western Montana network. Each property offers a world-class retreat and features club and private community amenities.

Just to the east rises the mighty Swan Mountains with hiking trails, Jewel Basin, and glacier fed lakes. Along the Swan River, much of the ruggedness that defines Montana can be found with a tremendous variety of game and a diverse ecology. The angler, hunter, hiker or nature lover will find a home in the Swan Valley.
