About the owner: Carl and Bert Herndon are long time residents of Bigfork. This wonderful town is where we chose to raise our family. Since the kids are grown, we now 'winter' in a warmer climate but will continue to go back to Bigfork for the summer and fall. Bigfork is a magical village with outdoor activities available for everyone in the village and surrounding areas.

Why the Owner Chose Bigfork, MT, USA:
This property is on the 'still' part of the Swan River and has a peaceful serenity to it. The house is full of charm and warmth and is the perfect place to unwind from your everyday life.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property could not be closer to the river.
