"We enjoyed our stay at the Lakeview Retreat. Plenty of room for our family of 7 with a bonus of 2 fully furnished kitchens. The view of Flathead Lake is breathtaking with the eagles soaring past the windows in the morning. Great location close enough to Glacier National Park for a day visit and plenty of hiking right from the house. We ate our weight in cherries as they were in perfect season. Can't wait to visit again!"

"My husband and I stayed here for our wedding snniversary trip. The house was beautiful and just what we expected! The property was great; the yard backs up right to the river just as the pictures advertise and there's a great dock that if you buy a Montana fishing license for your stay you can fish off of, and my husband caught a monstrous fish that we cooked for dinner one night. We made a fire in the fire pit outside which was nice and functional. The town of Big Fork was very enjoyable with shops, restaurants, lakes, rivers and hiking locations within convenient driving distances from the home. The home was very cozy and clean and even small things like a "community cupboard" with sugar and flour, etc., for your use during your stay made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Overall our stay was great and we definitely plan to return to this specific home again and again until we buy our own place in Montana! : )
The only thing I would recommend is for pet owners: if you bring a dog on your trip I would recommend you keep it on a leash or work out beforehand the home owners speaking to the neighbors about their dogs. The neighbors dogs (3) were slightly aggressive, although small breeds and seemingly harmless, and they continued to run over to the property when we were outside; there is not a fence between the next house that can contain their small dogs, and when we first arrived they barked at our feet the whole time we unloaded the car and continued to visit us at times during our stay while we enjoyed the yard. I will say that after a couple days the dogs seemed to get more used to us and became less aggressive, and also we did not mention this to the neighbors or the rental's property manager during our stay, so to be fair we did not give them a chance to remedy this during our stay. I'm sure if we would have let them know, the property owners would have done what they could to remedy it because all my exchanges with them have been pleasant, professional, they are very accommodating, and they seem excited to share their home. We did not bring a dog on our trip but if we did I could see it being stressful as to whether all the dogs would get along."

"We so enjoyed this beautiful, well appointed home..the view is fabulous of the Swan River and loved hearing rushing by. We enjoyed a great walk up the Swan River trail on a sunny cold day. It was so nice to have everything and more that we neede for fixing meals. Such a well supplied kitchen! The location is so handy for visiting Glacier Park and White Fish. Big Fork was a fun little town with wonderful shopping!"

"The place and location is just vintage Montana. We shared the cabin with another family and enjoyed it immensely. We stayed for a week in late July. We chose this cabin because it looked rustic and had 10 acres and was not right on Flathead Lake, so we figured it would be more secluded. The place is beyond the pictures shown online and blew us away. There were deer constantly crossing the property along with a family of wild turkeys. The river was great and there were kayaks and canoes and paddles, vests- just don't stand up quickly in the canoe as they tip and the plastic benches that are available for the canoes don't float! There were about 10 bikes in the shed, and more toward the newer side. I had inquired about fishing rods and the owner was kind enough to purchase rods and some tackle BEFORE our trip out there. The cabin is quaint and quintessential country. We turned on the radio to a country station and left it there the whole trip. The kitchen is stocked with everything you would need and there is also a grill outside. The location is ideal, very quiet and off the beaten path. The views are spectacular. I can't imagine how beautiful (and downright cold) the winter must be. The river is slow moving and easy to navigate and deep enough for swimming- Very refreshing, even when not falling out of a canoe. There are amazing cherry stands all over the place along the roads, the small town is great and apparently Big Fork is the center for stage theatre in Montana- We saw a comedic play there and the kids loved the ice cream places. They also have some great places to dine. The location is close enough to the airport and to Glacier Nat'l Park and to a variety of horseback riding places, hiking trails. The place is very large, so early birds can get up go downstairs and not disturb the others. Lots of places to read a book, lots of games at the place, the next door plot had horses that the girls would go out to see and pet and feed daily. It was really a great get away. The entire Flathead lake area is just so country and rural that it just felt good to be there and we wish we had had more time. There is just so much to do here. The owner, Valerie, and property manager, Deb, are just great people. They were invested in our stay and eager to please. I fear I have said too much, yet I can't say enough. We will be heading back soon, we will make more time as this was hands down, our favorite vacation and our favorite rental."
