About the Property
3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home with the river and mountain views
We have a dock to fish off of and a large yard only 8' above the river - easy to get your kayaks and canoes in and out. We include a couple of kayaks, and a canoe for your use on the Swan River. Lots of parking - bring your boat and head out to Flathead Lake or Swan Lake only a few miles away - or if it is a small fishing boat, you can put it right on the Swan River and tie it to our dock.
One master bedroom has a queen bed with a one-of-a-kind slab pine bedhead, deep tub, steam shower, and walk-in closet, the 2nd master bedroom and bath is the 2nd floor exclusively with a king bed and large walk-in shower. The 3rd bedroom has a queen bed. The 3rd bath also has a walk-in shower. A half bath is off the kitchen. We have 2 single foam pads if you need them for kids. We also have a large 'smart' TV in the living room, and a gas fireplace. We are pet friendly and have a dog run. Oh, did I mention we have a few bicycles to ride around the neighborhood?
Whitetail deer tend to wander through our property and it is not uncommon to have a bald eagle or horned owl land in our trees. Bring your binoculars to view the geese, swans, mallards, buffleheads, golden eyes, and muskrats right out front. Bring your marshmallows for the fire pit off the deck. Better bring your cameras too.
Please note - Flathead County will only allow monthly rentals. Please read comments from other guests (although note - most of them stayed in our home weekly which is no longer allowed). A reservation must be booked for no less than 30 days. I have lower rates in the winter if you would like to stay 60 days or more. If you only want to come for one month this winter (holidays, March, etc) the rate is $3000/month.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Larry and I started out as ski bums - in fact, we met up skiing one day 42 years ago. Slowly we became responsible with careers as a general contractor and a tour guide/property manager/realtor. Our 3 children and spouses and darling granddaughters love the out-of-doors and like to keep active (so we have to entice them to come and visit us). We love buying properties in beautiful areas, fixing them up, furnishing them, and sharing them with others. Let us know if you are interested in Ouray, Colorado and/or Maui, Hawaii.
Why the Owner Chose Bigfork, MT, USA:
Larry and I lived our first 20 years in Aspen, Colorado, the next 20 years in Ouray, Colorado (both beautiful mountain communities) and always had a desire to live on a beautiful river. After visiting the Flathead Lake area for the past 10 years, we found the perfect property right on the Swan River. We still have easy access to hike in the beautiful mountains around here and in Glacier National Park. I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Kayak, fish, swim, canoe, take pictures, watch wildlife right from our wonderful home.
