About Lisa Strauss - Swan Shores Lodge

We are a trusted member of the Vacation Rental Industry and a member of the Professional Vacation Rental Association. We have been in business for over 10 years and have the highest integrity. We are not a management company these are all of our own properties. This enables us to describe the home in great detail. I am an interior designer so all of our homes have been designer decorated by the design arm of our company. In addition all of our vacation homes are maintained by a caretaker so that the property is well cared for and our guests are given individual attention. I respond to inquiries within 10 minutes of submission or give us a call as we are super easy to reach. We really try hard to exceed guests expectations!

Lisa Strauss - Swan Shores Lodge purchased this estate in 2005

Why Lisa Strauss - Swan Shores Lodge chose Flathead Lake

We live full time in the San Juan Islands in the State of Washington and choose Montana because of its close proximity. We started in Whitefish and narrowed our search to the Flathead Valley as we were looking for a lakefront home. We settled on Swan Lake because it was less populated and the views of the Swan Mountains. Swan Shores Lodge was really an ugly duckling the bedrooms were painted shocking pink and baby blue. We were initially not wild about the house because most log homes are stained in a rustic brown whereas this one was stained in a dove gray. It needed some serious updating but the lakefront location and views were just magnificent. Fortunately, we had some vision and could see the potential with some updating and interior design touches. I decided to design around the dove grey stain, so instead of following a traditional rustic we went with a nautical theme and it worked. The end result is we ended up with a totally unique lakefront vacation home that is not like anything else you will find in the State of Montana

What makes this estate unique

Lakefront, Lakefront, being on Swan Lake which is a smaller lake that does not have a great deal of boat traffic. Home Theater room and views from just about every window of the lake.

Fantastic house! 11 friends rented the entire home, 7 bedrooms and theater room. Wonderful place to gather and enjoy! The home is beautifully decorated and has everything you could want. We cooked several meals and had every tool we needed. Everyone said the beds were soooo comfortable! Watching movies in the theater room was such a treat! Would definitely recommend this incredible vacation rental!
