About Lexi Wright
I purchased this property to be near my family during the summer months. I have been enjoying summers in Bigfork for the last 20 years. I renovated this home two years ago and have been using it as a summer get away during my visits home from Hong Kong to be near family. I would love to share my little slice of solitude and adventure with you.
Lexi Wright purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Lexi Wright chose Bigfork
Swan Cottage is nestled along Johnston creek. There is nothing like soaking up the sunshine from a hammock, reading a book while listening to the creek run by. During the winter months I love cross country skiing, and snow shoeing from my front door. You can walk to Swan Lake, and Swan Sites public and private access points within ten minutes. Please let me know if I can assist you with any local tourism arrangements such as boat rentals, hike suggestions, where to ice skate, or where to dog sled. This is the ideal destination for the outdoor enthusiast.
What makes this Cabin unique
Swan Cottage also includes public Swan Sites access which allows you to put your boat, canoe, or kayak onto Swan Lake.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Best Vacation Rental We Have Stayed In
We LOVED this vacation rental! The cabin was unique, private, and clean. The decor in the cabin was fun and made the stay extra special. You can't even see a neighbor. The location was very private, BUT very convenient and accessible. It only took us 10 minutes to get to Bigfork and an EASY 1 hour ( or less?) drive to Glacier Natl Park. In the evenings, we enjoyed driving along the shoreline of Swan Lake and hanging out on the beach to watch the boats. Cabin is well equipped with everything you might need as well. There is an outdoor picnic table and lawn chairs to enjoy the creek behind the cabin. Thank you for sharing your special place with us!!
Wow! We are so complimented that this was the “best vacation rental you have stayed in.” We are so glad you enjoyed beautiful July in Montana and warmly welcome you back anytime :).
Wonderfully charming cottage. It was hard to leave.
Swan Cottage was a true home away from home. I loved being in the woods in this sweet cottage. We will definitely be back.
Comfort and tranquility
After spending a week in this cabin, I hated to leave! The cabin itself is fully stocked, comfortable, and well taken care of. As for location, the cabin is set back in the winter wonderland of trees and snow to where I felt like I was in a world all of my own, yet all my basic necessities could be found 15 minutes away. This cabin is such that you could spend your entire vacation relaxing in the tranquility of this property, or entertain yourself with a myriad of outdoor activists, as the airport and quaint towns are within easy driving distance. (I spent most of my time reading by the fireplace, however) :) The owner, Lexi, is fantastic! She and her family were sensitive to my traveling alone and took fantastic care of me, especially when my flights were delayed by several hours and my luggage didn’t arrive for almost 2 days due to complications of a snowstorm. Lexi is a 5 star hostess with a 5 star cabin! Will definitely be staying again when I return with my family at a later date!
We were so sorry your trip was cut short; but are so happy to hear you enjoyed the time you were able to stay! We truly enjoyed our time with you and welcome you and your family back soon :)!
Beautiful setting and well equipped Cottage home.
Easy to work with the caretakers. Kitchen well stocked with what you would need to cook meals. Bedrooms are cozy but the bathrooms could have had more washcloths and tissues. If anyone in your party has trouble with stairs (bad knees) I would warn to acess bedrooms you either have to maneuver a narrow spiral staircase downstairs or some stairs to the second floor. We also enjoyed the town of Bigfork and the drive to Glacier National Park. I would advise if possible to see status of Wildland fires in the area when you visit as the air was smoked out the whole time as if it were a rainy day. Good experience over all.
Summer is fire season
The cabin is interestingly decorated, secluded and stocked with items for cooking and games and books for passing the time. Summer may not be the best time to visit though due to the bad fire season with the associated hazardous and unhealthy smoke that has been in the Flathead Valley since August 10. The smoke prevents any substantial outdoor activity and affects the visibility. Even Glacier Park was very smokey with limited visibility. The cabin does not have a radio or basic cable TV so it is a challenge to find information for evacuation or to monitor the hazardous air quality. We spent most of our time in the cabin. The lower level has a narrow circular stairway that one must be very careful on. The bed down stairs has a sinking hole in the middle as well as the day bed. Both are uncomfortable. Better pillows are also needed. The bed up stairs is decent. The back patio was inviting and would be nice during times of fresh air. The land is scenic and as is described with a stream and visiting deer and turkeys.
We are so sorry to see that you had such an average visit. Sadly the wild fires struck most of the state this year and were out of our control. Locals and visitors alike struggled with the air quality during this time. I do hope that you return to Montana when Montana boasts it's beautiful Big Sky! It is not to be missed. We will look into the bed downstairs right away. Typically guests tell us that they find the bed you mentioned very comfortable. Thanks for letting us know. We always appreciate feedback.
romantic swan cottage
Quaint and homey with beautiful details. Quiet. It was wonderful just being around the property. My parents stayed upstairs and we were downstairs. There was great privacy even with 4 people in the house.
