About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

This contemporary two-story cottage sits among the trees and boasts an amazing view of the mountains and beautiful Swan Lake. A wooded path takes you to a nice swimming beach equipped with a dock and over 200 feet of lackfront to explore. There is one bedroom with a queen bed and a fold out queen futon upstairs so it sleeps four comfortably. One bathroom with a shower and a clawfoot bathtub outside so you can soak in a beautiful private setting while gazing out at the lake. It has a well-stocked kitchen with stove/oven, microwave and dishwasher and there is a barbeque on the deck for guests' use. Cottage is equipped with a flat-screen tv, dvd/vcr/cd players with many movies, music and board games to enjoy. No wi-fi (but you won't want to be looking at a screen while you are here anyway :) There is good cell coverage. On the point of the property there is a gazebo with a swinging double-chair perfect for your morning coffee or evening glass of wine as you watch the beautiful sunset. Swan Lake has great fishing and swimming and it's usually glassy surface makes it perfect for water skiing and other water toys. There is very little boat traffic so you may feel that the entire lake is yours to enjoy. Swan Song is truly a little slice of heaven!

Swan Lake is one of the most beautiful and serene lakes in the area. Small enough that there isn't a lot of boat traffic, yet large enough for any kind of boating, amazing water skiing, jet skiing, fishing and swimming. Swan village with small boat rentals is minutes away as is the charming village of Bigfork which boasts fabulous restaurants, shopping, art galleries, live theater, a great golf course and a marina on Flathead Lake. There are beautiful day hikes and backpacking opportunities all around and gorgeous Glacier National Park is a short drive away. In the winter there is fantastic downhill skiing at Blacktail above Flathead Lake and Big Mountain in Whitefish as well as opportunities for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: I am originally from Billings, MT and also lived for many years in California where I got my degrees at Stanford and San Diego State. Though I loved the weather and the ocean, I missed the mountains, fresh air and beautiful lakes of my home state so moved to Helena, MT where I have lived for the past 22 years. I am married with two teen-age boys who have become expert water skiers on the 'glass' of Swan and have grown to love it as much as I do. We live year-round in Helena where I am a psychotherapist and entertainer.

Why the Owner Chose Bigfork, MT, USA:
My family spent many summers in the Flathead area when I was young and Swan Lake grew to be my favorite place on earth! My parents were some of the earliest performers at the Bigfork Summer Theatre and when I was old enough, I too did professional summer theatre in Bigfork (and many other places). My mom and I scraped our pennies together to put a down-payment on this property when I was in my twenties and later built our little cottage which has hosted many a family gathering. Later my brother joined in as part owner of Swan Song so it is really a family-owned place where we have all made many happy memories. I remember when we first purchased the property, I would sit among the trees, gazing out at the beautiful lake and mountains and think about how very blessed I was to get to own a little piece of heaven. I still think that every time I am there as it truly is one of the most beautiful and special places on earth.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
So beautiful, serene, quiet but with so much to do close by in Bigfork village if you want great theatre, a great meal, or to stroll among beautiful artwork. What I love most about the property is that it stretches out into the lake at a point so it is very private and it truly does have an amazingly beautiful view of the lake and mountains beyond.
