Located 10 minutes from Bigfork and 50 minutes from Glacier National Park. Just one mile from the 2+ million Flathead National Forest, a lesser known gem where you can enjoy unspoiled nature without the crowds. Golf Digest has named the Flathead Valley as a top 50 golf course Destination with 9 Championship courses within a 45 minute radius.
Bigfork is picturesque village nestled along the banks of the Swan River and the stunningly beautiful Flathead Lake. Bigfork is well known for its Summer Playhouse repertory theater, galleries, shops, restaurants, Eagle Bend championship golf course, and as a base for outdoor recreation and adventure sports.
In the nearby village of Swan Lake you will find the popular Laughing Horse restaurant and one of the best swimming beaches in the area. August is a wonderful time to visit Swan Lake to enjoy the Huckleberry Festival.
The area is also well known as a fisherman's paradise with its host of lakes and rivers which are home to pike, trout, bass, kokanee salmon, and many other species. 170 species of birds frequent the Swan Valley and this area is home to more species of large mammals than anywhere in the lower 48 states. In spring and fall, the area is also amazing for mushrooming, including our favorite, Morels. Wildflowers are another wonderful gift of the area with a wide variety growing on the property. May and June are the best time for Wildflowers on this property with the season arriving later at higher elevations.

About the owner: The property is owned and managed by Linda Brentano, and Charley Orth. We are a married couple with different last names. Linda is a Career and Business Coach who delights in helping people with career and life planning, particularly for the second half of life. Check the Swan Lake Cabins website or ask Linda about upcoming retreats that may be scheduled. Or if you are feeling in need of some recharge time, feel free to ask Linda for help designing a personal retreat or to schedule individual coaching. Coaching can be done while taking a walk or while enjoying the inspiring views from the Hummingbird House porch. Linda can also help with scheduling on-site massage appointments. Early is his career Charley was trained in Culinary Arts which he enjoys putting to use in preparing delicious breakfasts for cabin guests. You will also see Charley's special touches as a craftsman in the custom cabinets and special finishing touches in Hummingbird House.
Why the Owner Chose Bigfork, MT, USA:
Linda's brother, Glen Stout, was the original owner of Swan Lake (Guest) Cabins, which he established in 1996, after moving to Montana from Portland, Oregon. Glen was an iconic figure who was very well known in the area. If you have breakfast or lunch at the very popular Echo Lake Cafe, check out the second stool from the right at the counter as you enter and you will see a little plaque with Glen's name. In 2012, Linda and Charley purchased the cabin property from her brother's estate. Linda and Charley had long dreamed of having a Bed and Breakfast/ Retreat Center where Linda could do coaching and facilitate retreats and Charley could put his passion for cooking and craftsmanship to work. It felt like we were being called to move to Montana from Oregon to build on Glen's tradition with our unique backgrounds and interests. We have been heartily welcomed by the Bigfork community and are delighted to steward this very special property and attend to the needs of our wonderful guests. We are still amazed by the beauty of this very special part of Montana.
