"My husband and I stayed here for our wedding snniversary trip. The house was beautiful and just what we expected! The property was great; the yard backs up right to the river just as the pictures advertise and there's a great dock that if you buy a Montana fishing license for your stay you can fish off of, and my husband caught a monstrous fish that we cooked for dinner one night. We made a fire in the fire pit outside which was nice and functional. The town of Big Fork was very enjoyable with shops, restaurants, lakes, rivers and hiking locations within convenient driving distances from the home. The home was very cozy and clean and even small things like a "community cupboard" with sugar and flour, etc., for your use during your stay made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Overall our stay was great and we definitely plan to return to this specific home again and again until we buy our own place in Montana! : )
The only thing I would recommend is for pet owners: if you bring a dog on your trip I would recommend you keep it on a leash or work out beforehand the home owners speaking to the neighbors about their dogs. The neighbors dogs (3) were slightly aggressive, although small breeds and seemingly harmless, and they continued to run over to the property when we were outside; there is not a fence between the next house that can contain their small dogs, and when we first arrived they barked at our feet the whole time we unloaded the car and continued to visit us at times during our stay while we enjoyed the yard. I will say that after a couple days the dogs seemed to get more used to us and became less aggressive, and also we did not mention this to the neighbors or the rental's property manager during our stay, so to be fair we did not give them a chance to remedy this during our stay. I'm sure if we would have let them know, the property owners would have done what they could to remedy it because all my exchanges with them have been pleasant, professional, they are very accommodating, and they seem excited to share their home. We did not bring a dog on our trip but if we did I could see it being stressful as to whether all the dogs would get along."
