Flathead Lake Orchard Estate – Namesake of Hockaday Bay
First time on the market since 1910, a rare opportunity to own a historic Flathead Lake Orchard Estate.
Included are over 12 acres of orchards, and the iconic Hockaday Art Studio.
With over 238 feet of gravel beach on Flathead Lake, the property also features a main house constructed in 2008 along with multiple outbuildings dating back to 1910, many of which are still used in orchard operations.
Structures include a main house, residential cabin, wood shop, warehouse, and packing and ladder sheds.
The home includes a 3br/3ba floorplan with generous windows, three sources of heat, and deck facing the lake.
The orchard consists of multiple varieties of cherry, apricots, heirloom apple, mulberry, hazelnut, peach, and plum trees. The main house is situated over 125 yards from the beach with orchards leading to the waterfront.
This remarkable property can easily support livestock. Deer, geese, and wild turkeys abound. There is an excellent well on the property, along with a 1000-gallon cistern, which pulls from the lake. A second well is available on the property.
With tranquility to relax and play on the largest freshwater lake, west of the Mississippi River, this property embodies the serenity of Flathead Lake life. Most of the neighbors visit only a few weeks of the year, making this a slice of blissful, quiet Montana.
