Bigfork vacation rentals are set in a small town in Northwestern Montana, at an ideal location for outdoor recreation. The scenery around Bigfork is nothing short of breathtaking, with towering peaks, glacial lakes and dense forest, offering no shortage of adventure.
Bigfork self-catering accommodation is set on the northeastern shore of Flathead Lake, which is the largest freshwater lake in the western United States, and is rated as one of the cleanest on the planet for its size and kind. In the summer months it would be a fantastic destination for a fishing trip, with large stocks of trout, pike, bass, perch and salmon. Another way to experience the sublime scenery around the lake would be to take a boat or kayak trip on the water, and in the warmest months you’ll be able to enjoy activities as diverse as jet-skiing, snorkeling or swimming here. Set on the lake is the Flathead Lake Wild Horse Island State Park, so named for its numbers of wild horses. There are also bighorn sheep, and you’ll be able to hike a number of beautiful forest trails.
Closer to your Bigfork self-catering vacation accommodation is Eagle Bend Golf Club, considered by many to be the number one course in the entire state. It benefits from the unforgettable scenery all around, with mountaintops peaking over the wooded fringes of the course. A little further away, just outside the town of evergreens are the Village Greens and Buffalo Hills courses. And if you visit the area in the winter months you’ll be close to the Blacktail Mountain Ski Area, on the opposite shore of Flathead Lake and offering 24 runs, the longest of which is one and a quarter miles in length.
The resort town of Whitefish is around half an hour north of Bigfork vacation rentals. It sits upstream in the Flathead Valley – in the summer it’s a top water sports destination, and in the winter you’ll be able to enjoy the Whitefish Mountain Resort, which features a range of terrains and modern facilities.
