Bigfork is known for its small town feel, juicy cherry crop, and shining waterfront. Winter and summer activities at Whitefish Mountain Resort are only a short drive away, but most people are drawn to Bigfork real estate by the beautiful lake perfect for boating, fishing, swimming, and diving, or relaxing. The town hugs the northeast corner of Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. For hikers and explorers, the beautiful mountains in Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall Wilderness complex, and the Swan Wilderness area are also only a short drive away. The name of Bigfork’s main street, Electric Avenue, comes from the town’s historical power plant, but it also serves as a fitting description of life downtown. Bigfork is home to many restaurants, including the award-winning Flathead Lake Brewing. Named “One of the 100 Best Small Art Towns” in the nation, arts festivals run all year long, world-class art galleries line the streets, and The Bigfork Summer Playhouse, known as “the theatre by the bay,” has produced Oscar-quality actors. The popularity of this area with tourists means that the town, with a tight-knit population of 4,000, can support a flourishing, vibrant fine dining and art culture.
