Why Candus Suppelsa chose Bigfork

We searched all over the state of Montana for property but when we saw the view of this home on the cover of Home Seekers magazine in 1994 we were awestruck. We have loved every minute of every season in this beautiful home while we vacationed with our two children.

What makes this house unique

The Echo Lake Retreat is very unique as it is situated on a peninsula with water (and swimming docks) on either side of the property. If you are looking for shade or sun you can find it. The view of the mountains constantly changes throughout the day which is spectacular.

This is a fabulously located property where all the details have been meticulously considered.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is fabulous and the house is comfortable and attractive. We went several times to Glacier National Park which is an easy ride. We did have to contend with smoke from wildfires which was sometimes frustrating, but it was a relief to have such a well appointed home to relax in even when the weather wasn't cooperating.

This home was even better than we expected! The homeowners have created such a relaxing environment.

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation ever at this home. The location, the beautiful house and surrounding environment were perfect! We enjoyed time on the deck and even changed plans to slow down and spend more time at the house because it was just so pleasant!

The home was extremely clean and included every comfort any family would need. We used the kayaks often and grilled out several nights. We sat on the dock looking up at the stars more than once; I have never seen a night sky like that!

It's about as close to Glacier as you can get without staying in the park. The neighborhood is wonderful and even includes the friendliest dog I have ever met.

I highly recommend this property and will be back as often as possible!

Fantastic home on Echo Lake

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year in a row that we have stayed at this wonderful home on Echo lake with our family. The setting could not be more perfect, and Candus has done a beautiful job decorating it perfectly. We loved having our boat tied up at the dock ready for all of our water activities, and all the extra toys, life jackets, kayaks and canoes that were provided were enjoyed by all. We did do some hiking, huckleberry picking, and floating down the Swan River, but mostly stayed at the house enjoying having our family together, the water activities, views, evening barbeques and beautiful sunsets. We can't wait to return. This is our favorite house and lake in Montana. I would give it 10 stars if I could.

Better than I imagined! Cannot wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough how happy we were with our stay at Echo Lake Retreat! The views are unreal, always changing, & we never tired of being on the porch admiring them. The home was equipped with everything we needed plus more! We had plenty of space for the 5 of us, clean, comfortable beds, nice linens & towels. The kitchen is well stocked, no need to buy extras at the store. The kayaks, & canoe was a hit, & so convenient to have on hand. We enjoyed exploring the lake, fishing, sunrises & sunsets all right at the home when we were not out exploring Jewel Basin (which is not far) & the little village of Big Fork, Glacier Park, Whitefish, and visiting family in neighboring areas. Truly right on the water with two docks, one with amazing sunsets on rear of home, & the front dock for breathtaking mountain views of the Swan Range. The home was very convenient to most everything we wanted to do. Probably too convenient to huckleberry ice-cream!! I did not want to leave! Thank you Candus for such a lovely home to experience Montana! The Butler's

Perfect view. Quiet location. Wonderful place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week-long stay on Echo Lake!! Candus was very helpful and provided a smooth rental process. The location and view are super - even better than the photos! The home was very comfortable, well cared for , and all the essentials were well-stocked. We enjoyed fishing from the dock, paddling around the lake with kayaks and canoes and exploring the Glacier National Park area. On the deck, we had many meals and hours of relaxing and soaking in the view. We also enjoyed daily games of lake-fetching with the neighbor dog, Max. If we return to the area, we will definitely look into renting this home again!!

We visited in late May, during the 'off-season' and had perfect weather, and little crowds/traffic.

Side note, unrelated to the home - a number of the roads we wanted to travel (in GNP, to Jewel Basin, etc.) are unpaved - and specifically prohibited by some rental car companies. A detail I didn't consider before making plans.
