About Cyndy Thorsen

Eric and Cyndy Thorsen own the building built in 1906. The apartment has been a part of this building from the beginning as the original owner lived on site, running a true Mercantile in Bigfork. Eric Thorsen currently has his studio in the building, creating amazing bronze sculptures and beautiful paintings in the historic location. You will see him outside the back door creating something spectacular. His wife, Cyndy runs the art gallery and will be happy to show you around!

Cyndy Thorsen purchased this apartment in 2001

The loft is very nice and comfortable. It has all I want: relax, peace, near all, fully equipped and a marvellous view to the lake!

I love this place and I will choose it again in my next visit to Montana.

This rental is a wonderful place to stay. We rent this place every summer. It is a perfect getaway place. The location is absolutely perfect for downtown, walking distance. The rental is very clean, easy access, very cozy place. It has its own parking which is great for the busy downtown.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This property is a great place to stay while in the Flathead lake area. Everything is absolutely immaculate, comfy, and cozy. Very clean and well kept. The town of Big Fork is just wonderful, lake is beautiful and close to the grandeur of Glacier Park. I liked that you just park your car and walk and visit all the cool shops in Big Fork and great adventures on the lake. You can't find a more perfect place to stay and take a wonderful vacation!!
