Lakefront getaway with dock, 400 square-foot deck, close to town.

Get ready to live the lake life at this Bigfork vacation home. Right on the lake and offering a dock for your 22-foot boat, a 400 square-foot deck, two-car garage and room for four, this Montana vacation home will be your new favorite getaway year after year.

Conveniently located just about three miles from the main hub of Bigfork, this retreat puts you in the right place to stock up on groceries, grab a drink at Flathead Brewing Company, or see a classic musical at the Playhouse. Eagle Bend Golf Course is just north of town. Tons of parks including Glacier National Park, trails, and even a ski area are in the area as well.

Gather on the large deck, complete with a gas grill, firepit, and amazing view of Flathead Lake. Hold hands and relax on the swing. If you have canoes or a large boat, you'll have your own dock to launch them from for an afternoon on the crystal clear blue water.

Inside the home, you'll find gorgeous hardwood floors and a comfortable, laid-back style. A welcoming living room features a satellite-equipped TV for when you want to unwind. Of course, the view from the living room is unbeatable, so you may not even notice the television.

The well-equipped kitchen helps you save a little money on dinners out with all the appliances you need to fix a meal. Have a quick bite at the breakfast bar or sit down at the six-seat table. The table is big enough to spread out an epic board game, too!

Your family will feel cozy staying here. A queen-size log bed sits beside a window in the bedroom, while the sleeper sofa works well for a couple or two children. One-and-a-half bathrooms add to the convenience.

An in-home washer and dryer plus WiFi top everything off, for a completely comfortable home away from home.

Being on the lake, you could even boat out to Wild Horse Island and dock for a hike. In addition to lake adventures, Glacier National Park is just about 45 miles away for a remarkable experience in one of the country's most uniquely beautiful reserves. About the same distance away is Whitefish Mountain Resort, where you can ski and snowboard during winter before warming up with hot cocoa at your lakefront escape.

Experience Montana like never before when you stay at Wheeler's Flathead Lakehouse!

The property is located just up the shore from Woods Bay and biking distance to several restaurants right on the lake. The dock was a beautiful place to spend sunrise and sunsets but needs some repairs for safety (exposed screws sticking out in several places). The apartment above the garage was adequate but with no A/C it got pretty hot during the day which made it tough to sleep at night. Also, the pullout couch might be the least comfortable bed I’ve ever slept on. So much potential, but overall this place needs a little TLC.

This was the perfect spot for our birthday getaway. The view is phenomenal and the weather was great. I would wait until later in the year next time, though. The water was a bit low.

Beautiful view and comfortable home. We loved swimming off the dock. The home is located close enough to run into Bigfork for dinner.

Nice little one bedroom apartment. No issues for us but it does require climbing a long flight of stairs to access the apartment. Check in was easy and the unit was very clean. The dock was fabulous. However there is no beach it is smooth rock that drops off pretty rapidly so I would not recommend it for small children who want to wade.

Very nice home; quiet and had everything we needed for a lovely relaxing getaway.

The view is great and the cabin very clean. But the path to the beach is in need of repair. Its very small,steep and dangerous. The new neighbor in a trailer is pulling water and power from the cabin so a cord and hose stretch across the property.There is an ant problem so needs help there. 3 cheap chairs on the deck and a picnic table are a joke.The property looks like the owner doesn't care and has had no upgrades. For the price I would rent another property.

The Wheeler's built a simple home with a loft feel above the two car garage. The view of Flathead lake is soothing, the dock meets the need of a place to launch kayak's or canoes from, and the washer/dryer in the garage is very helpful for wet and dirty hiking and water sports clothes.

Great Lake views from the deck! Sunsets are really awesome. Hard to beat it!

We have used VRBO numerous times during our travels. Most often we try to find river front and/or lakefront cabins for the two of us. And, we often are last minute "shoppers" looking for a property. The Wheeler Lakefront Home was everything that we could have hoped for on Flathead Lake. The home is an easy drive just south of Bigfork, and the gravel drive to the home was easy to drive down the gradual hill from the highway. The drive was a dead end road, which helped with the quietness and private setting of the home. The home was beautifully furnished with a very modern and updated and maintained bathroom, kitchen, living/dining room, and balcony overlooking the lake. I especially enjoyed the woodsy setting with many pine trees on the property, and, since I enjoy woodworking as a hobby, the light oak interior and solid oak floors of the home were extra special. The dock was just an easy, short walk from the home. One morning when I was having coffee on the balcony, I was watching a dozen or so canadian geese swim around the dock and come up and graze on some of the natural grass between the home and the lake. Just amazing!

We are a family of 3 and enjoyed this house and its location very much. It has a wonderful deck to overlook the lake and a private dock with great views and access to the water. It was also in a quiet neighborhood and seemed very safe. We will definitely stay here again.

Celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary in Montana. This was our first visit to Montana and it was wonderful. The area is beautiful and so relaxing. Completed our first Spartan Beast as well. Made lots of memories while visiting Glacier National Park and going to the lookout. Thank you for this experience. We will see you soon. God Bless!
