“Very pretty place to stay”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We rented a house on the Swan River just outside of Big Fork Montana. It was an excellent location and the scenery along the river was charming. Took some awesome sunset photos from the deck with the reflection of the trees in the water.

“Kayak Trip”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

We took a 4 hour kayak trip down the Swan with one of the local kayak rental companies. The distance and scenery were great. If the weather is nice on your trip to the Flathead Valley, try a kayak or stand up paddleboard on the Swan.

“The house we rented was on the Swan”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

Fishing, canoeing, kayaking. Pretty river, lots of animal life, ospreys grabbing fish out of the water, families of deer wandering through the yard. Cold water, gotta get used to that. :)
