Your lake house, log cabin, and mountain lodge fantasies are all fulfilled in this story-book lodge on two lakes and 11 pristine acres in the Flathead Valley.
Horseshoe Lake Lodge: A beautiful, rare, cypress-log home situated on both your own private Lariat Lake on the property and the lovely, unspoiled Horseshoe Lake, which has only one other house on its shores, offering views out to the spectacular Swan Mountains beyond.
Horseshoe Lake Lodge’s 11 acres are nestled serenely between acres of Fish and Game forest and Horseshoe Lake on one side, and a vast forested estate on the other. There are no neighbors to disturb you, the families of deer who appear morning and evening outside your windows, or the array of birds who nest around Lariat Lake. It's utterly remote and private, with plenty of room for a family or group of friends to play without even going anywhere! The two lakes, lawns, a firepit, secluded seating areas, and forest trails await on the property itself.
And yet, the property is only 10 minutes from both Flathead and Swan Lakes, and from the historic and charming town of Bigfork. You'll be just four miles from Swan River, 45 miles from Glacier National Park, and 48 miles from Whitefish Ski Resort.
This stunning area is spectacular in every season. In fall, the valley is resplendent with fall colors and alive with outdoor activity, including the best fishing, hunting, and hiking. Then, it is a winter wonderland—Bigfork is Montana’s Christmas village, the mountains are breathtaking, and everyone is snowshoeing, ice-skating, snowboarding, ice fishing, sledding, and skiing, including at the world-class Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort. Spring finds everyone out on and around the vast array of waterways, boating, camping, biking, and hiking. Summer is glorious. There is unmatched, jaw-dropping beauty everywhere you look, at the height of its accessibility.
The log home itself is unusually lovely, a light and airy three floors of warm, honey-colored cypress, cedar, and hickory wood on the ceiling, walls, floors, and cabinets. The main house is 2,700 square feet, offering a breathtaking living and dining room with walls of lake-view windows under a 27-foot cathedral ceiling; three spacious en suite bedrooms with three attached baths; and an expansive walk-out basement with a family room area and another sleeping area with a beautiful queen bunk bed, a full laundry room, and a pretty patio overlooking over Lariat Lake. Everything is tastefully furnished with warm and bright log cabin and lake lodge décor. Above the picturesque adjacent log garage is a windowed sleeping loft, with two full beds - ideal for kids dreaming of that classic lake “camp” experience (away from, but so close to, parents). The home’s inviting, wide, covered front porch and wrap-around back deck overlooking the lakes are perhaps the most inspiring spaces of all, amidst the ravishing natural beauty of our area and serenity of this unique property.
