Positioned above the shores of Swan Lake in northwestern Montana, this inviting property awaits its new owner. Surrounded by the natural beauty of the Swan Valley, this property offers an escape from the rigors of everyday life. With big views from lake to mountaintop, the Swan Lake Overlook provides a perfect setting for a seasonal getaway or possibly a year-round residence.

The property consists of 160± acres of bare land ideally positioned within 30 minutes of the urban amenities found in Bigfork, Kalispell, and Whitefish, Montana. Even though the property is close to these desirable towns, it feels worlds away once you are on site.

Sixmile Creek flows through the property; its cool and clear water enhances the habitat for both flora and fauna. Wildlife enthusiasts will truly enjoy the location. The fall will deliver an abundant presence of elk, whose bugling calls echo through the green and gold valleys during the autumn rut. Additionally, the area is home to the majestic grizzly bear, wolves, whitetail deer, mule deer, and moose, which all tend to frequent the area throughout the seasons.

The property is easily accessed from Highway 83, just south of Bigfork, via a private, yet shared, road that continues beyond the property, which offers direct connectivity into thousands of acres of USFS lands to the east.

Whether you’re seeking to build your dream home, a peaceful retreat, or a seasonal basecamp for exploring the wonders of Montana’s wilderness, this property offers an ideal setting in one of the most coveted areas of western Montana.
