The Sentinel Pine-30 acre Grand Estate on 2300 feet of Lakefront

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 26, 2014
House, 17 Bedrooms, 9 Baths, 30 Sleeps

The Sentinel Pine is one of the last truly great estates of the Old West. PLEASE SEE OUR WEBSITE WWW.SENTINELPINE.COM FOR DISCUSSION OF RATES AND POLICIES. Its six buildings are located on 30 acres with 2300 feet of waterfront on Swan Lake. We can accommodate up to 25-30 guests for dinner and overnight. We have six acres of manicured lawns, plus a baseball field, tennis court, and a full range of sports equipment and fields. The Sentinel Pine is available for rental to select groups from mid-June through mid-September on a weekly basis (depending on availability we may accept shorter stays). Our guests have access to the entire estate as we do not rent individual buildings.

Located in the northwest part of Montana, just ten minutes from the charming town of Bigfork and less than an hour from Glacier National Park, it is also easily accessible by commercial airlines. We offer spectacular accommodations and amenities in one of the loveliest private settings in America.

Bigfork, less than 15 minutes from the Sentinel Pine, is one of the most charming towns of the Old West. On the shore of Flathead lake, the largest freshwater lake in the western half of the United States, this quaint town offers several dozen restaurants- - many of which are nationally- known and featured in major travel magazines- -and is an artists’ haven with a multitude of galleries and shops. The Bigfork Playhouse is one of the country’s finest summer-stock playhouses. Bigfork, and its sister town Whitefish 40 minutes north of it, are true “jewels” of the West.

About the Owner

Our family has owned the Sentinel Pine since 1944. As we advance in years and use this incredible property all too infrequently ourselves, we look forward to sharing this wonderful experience with others.

Sentinel Pine

Where dreams come true



Our daughters have fond memories of their enchanted life growing up on Swan Lake, which included special times at Sentinel Pine. Swan Lake is as romantic and beautiful as it sounds, so when they both were planning their weddings (just 20 days apart) it was natural that they would want to stage their events on their beloved Swan Lake.



During the first wedding my five sisters and their families and my father stayed at Sentinel Pine, which provided a perfect setting for our first family reunion in four years, with lots of fun on-site with volleyball, baseball, tennis, croquet, swimming, diving, and kayaking along with long laughter-filled meals and lively cribbage games capped off by musical performances by family members at the Main Lodge. Unlike other resorts where previous reunions were held, our family had the place to themselves, so it truly felt like one big happy family.



Our second daughter’s wedding was held at Sentinel Pine on a perfect summer day – 70s and sunny – a typical August day on Swan Lake. Family and close friends were seated lakeside during the ceremony held against Nature’s stage - beneath towering pines, next to a sheet of emerald water that slid into rugged mountains topped by endless blue skies. Afterwards guests enjoyed a casual yet beautiful reception in the shade of scented pine trees. A tent served as a bar and sitting area and tables perched above the lakeshore as an outdoor dining room. Family and close friends stayed at Sentinel Pine, which extended the fun of the wedding into a fun-filled vacation week.



At the end of summer we had new family members and a boatload of new memories. All made in a place where dreams really do come true.

We were so happy to rent the Sentinel Pine for our extended family from North Carolina and Georgia during the week of our wedding festivities. The baseball field was perfect for our family and friends softball game. There was even plenty of room for a local Bigfork hot dog vendor to pull up to entertain our guests. The opportunity for 25 family members to have individual family accommodation while being on one property was absolutely perfect. The views of Swan Lake are unparalleled. I am convinced that the main lodge back patio has the best view of Swan Peak of any other property on the lake. The canoes, kayaks and paddle boards were the perfect way to take On the sun, sunsets and even midnight stars. The main lodge was perfect for groups to convene early in the morning or late at night for games and guitar around the beautiful fireplace. We highly recommend Sentinel Pine for other active families.

Beautiful lakeside comfort for every need and age

Without a doubt one of the most enjoyable, unique and memorable places our extended family has ever stayed. There were enough activities to keep us all busy throughout the day, while there were also ample areas in which to relax in quiet. The town of Bigfork was easily accessible by car, yet not so close to impact our feeling of "getting away from it all".

It was the perfect balance of comfort and nature, and the daily activities could be molded to fit any age–from my 15-month-old daughter to my 86-year-old grandmother: Morning walks around the property; peaceful mid-morning kayak rides; lazy lunches on the dock; afternoon crafts on the lawn; delicious dinners in the lodge; post-dinner kickball games on the field; and lively card games into the wee hours.

The amazing on-site caretakers knew the property well, beautifully maintained everything inside and out, respected the privacy of all the guests, but were still readily available when we needed things. The owner was great in getting our trip planned, professional and trustworthy in all financial dealings, and flexible as to our large group's needs.

Will definitely plan a future weeklong stay there for a future family reunion. A+ in every regard!
