About Lisa Gilbert
Originally from Southern California, we purchased this property to create a quiet self sufficient and sustainable life for our small family. We love to share our special sanctuary with other like minded people and to collaborate with other Montana businesses that offer unique and special experiences. We have worked very hard to have and keep a Conditional Use Permit from the County to be able to share our property with people looking to peacefully retreat in this special place.
Lisa Gilbert purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2011
Why Lisa Gilbert chose Bigfork
This property is incredibly special and uniquely showcases the majestic qualities of each season. We love the variety of wildlife traversing the land, including deer, elk, moose, foxes, bobcat, raccoon, squirrels, bald eagles, ducks, geese, hawks, cranes, herons, owls and many other birds, most notably the wild swan. White Tail Deer tend to be the most common but are the most lovely and peaceful sighting. Occasionally, bear, wolf, and mountain lion are seen but our big guardian dogs keep these larger predators off our property. This property is not appropriate for parties or large groups of people.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
A cascading waterfall, reflective pond, large rock scape gardens, surrounding forest, and the back drop of the Swan Mountain Range offers a sacred space for family or organizational gatherings. The gorgeous mountain range, surrounding forest, cascading waterfall, reflective pond and large rock scape gardens provide magical photographic opportunities, especially during sunset when the sun casts an amazing panoramic alpine glow. This enchanted venue accommodates a variety of events; from family reunions, and small workshops, to a simple romantic get-away or a family vacation destination. We fell in love with this beautiful private property, the wilderness setting, and its unique craftsman style structures, and you will too!
