Property description

Large riverfront house - three bedrooms with two master suites - three bathrooms - large deck overlooking Swan River.

Beautiful, highly furnished waterfront home right on the Swan River. This 2,700-square-foot home -- plus a 500+ sf deck -- has approximately 200 feet of direct Swan River frontage with views of the river from nearly every room including the sitting room and living room. The other side of the house overlooks a large, private front yard for your enjoyment.

We have been renting our home to families visiting Montana for many years, and we invite you to read some of our prior guests' review which are included below. We believe our home may be the perfect place for you and your family or group. Enjoy the beauty and fun of the great Swan River which is about 10' from your deck and also enjoy Bigfork, Glacier, and the entire Flathead.

The home is unique in that it has two master bedroom suites at opposite ends of the house - each with its own bathroom and one with an adjacent, small, private office for your use. An additional bedroom and bathroom is located in the center of the house.

The living room is large with a stone fireplace. It has picture windows overlooking the river on one side; it has direct access to the large 500-square-foot deck which also overlooks the river. A barbeque and canoe are kept on the property for your enjoyment.

There is a separate dining area and a separate sitting/reading room and a large kitchen which is fully furnished and equipped. Lastly, there is a separate laundry room with a washer, dryer, and utility sink.

The house has been fully renovated over the years complete with a new stamped concrete front porch and entryway and a huge deck on overlooking the river. The house is designed with some wonderful antiques and furnishings combined with soft leather sofa and loveseats and flat creen TV with DVR TV recording system in the living room.

The property is southwesterly-facing so that you can enjoy the vivid sunsets each night.

The property is conveniently located, only eight to ten minutes driving from the restaurants, galleries, Summer Playhouse, and shopping in downtown Bigfork. Beautiful Glacier National Park, Echo Lake, the more rugged Jewel Basin Hiking area, and Whitefish are also nearby for day trips.

The house is available on weekly basis during the Summer months (normally Saturday to Saturday), but we also especially welcome those persons or families who wish to spend several weeks or longer. We are happy this year to offer reduced rates for those staying a month or longer during the Summer, and we also have substantially reduced rates for longer term leases during the Fall and Winter months.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: I was born in Kalispell, and after many years away I bought this home on Swan River about 18 years ago. My wife and I and our son now split our time between Bigfork and our home in Santa Barbara, CA., but my whole family -- going back 4 generations -- is from Northwest Montana ... we hope and think you will love Montana .. hiking, canoeing (or tubing) downriver from our deck, relaxing and watching the deer, wild turkeys, Canadian geese, ...... We look forward to your staying at our home.

Why the Owner Chose Bigfork, MT, USA:
There are many beautiful places to stay in the Bigfork area ... we like our property because it is quiet, private, and on the river -- and yet it is still only about 8 minutes door to door to the downtown shops and restaurants of Bigfork ... (and only about 2 minutes from the famous Echo Lake Cafe -- which serves the best deck breakfasts in the valley)..

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Every property has its own unique charms ... for us, we think you might especially enjoy the quiet privacy, the front yard, the large deck overlooking the river, the Summer swimming, tubing,and canoeing right to or from the house ... Also, the property faces southwest so you will see the magnificent sunsets over the river every night from your living room, from the dining room, and from the deck ... Have fun. Most people come to Montana in the Summer, but maybe come sometime in the Fall and Winter as well.
