Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great family reunion at The Swan Valley Lodge. Great spaces for family get togethers and many smaller spaces for individual privacy. Each of the seven bedrooms had its own bath. Nice space. Would rent it again for a future event.

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

My new wife and I hosted our wedding (35 guests) at the Star View Lodge, and it was perfect! The stunning views from the property look out over the mountains and valley, and were the perfect backdrop for our ceremony, which we held on the front lawn upper level. The lower level was the perfect size for our tent, where we held the reception. The interior is amazing, beautifully decorated in classic Montana style, and there was plenty of room for our family and friends. The house is well outfitted, and everything worked perfectly. We woke up every morning to deer and turkeys on the front and side lawns, and spent evenings around the fire pit roasting marshmallows. The location is perfect, just a short drive to Big Fork but secluded so that you never see neighbors or cars on the road. The property manager (Raina) was very responsive and worked with us on the event plans.

We highly recommend you select the Star View Lodge for your next Montana vacation!

great property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for a family reunion of 3 families comprised of 18 people, including 13 "kids" ranging from 13 to 28. Overall, the house was perfect for our needs. It is expansive, with 2 true masters and at least 1 other suite that was used by the 3rd parents but there are literally bedrooms and baths everywhere to the point where it took us a half hour to fully inventory the rooms and assign bedrooms to the masses. the basement has a living area and maybe 6 bunks and couch which was the man-cave for the 6 youngest cousins. The main house is massive with a nice deck, large kitchen and dining area, large living room game area, etc . there is also a separate living area in a separate building, with kitchen, connected to main house and accessed across a 2nd floor bridge. that separate area had 2 bedrooms that shared a jack and jill bathroom and was perfect for the 28 yo couple.

Beautiful views on the top of a mountain, a crows nest on the roof. house is a drive up a dirt road maybe about 1/4 to 1/2 mile from the bottom so cant walk anywhere but short drive to town and some food, groceries and beer. basketball court In separate building with a yoga studio a plus, and hot tub in yard was nice. My only complaints: ice machine didn't work in 2nd fridge and WIFI is terrible. The wifi is limited to like 5 or 10GB for everyone, for the whole stay, BUT we couldn't access the wifi all week anyway. We all used hotspots which was a pain. management was somewhat unresponsive but I guess our problems were not life or death either.

Not to detract, I still gave this property 5 stars. this is truly a great property as long (as you have an unlimited data plan).

Wedding Week was AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Swan Valley Lodge in early August for our daughters wedding. We brought our kids, their spouses, both of our parents and a couple of sisters and aunt (20 staying at the house). The house is perfect for long stays as it is spread out allowing for separation from each other so you don't feel crammed, including full bathrooms for every bedroom. The kids (and adults) loved being able to go to the gym and get rid of some energy. The deck was the grandparents favorite hang out place as the weather is awesome and there was always wild life to be watched. The kitchen is big enough to allow for cooking meals when we wanted and enough table space for all to sit, relax and enjoy.

We were blessed that the owners allowed us to have the wedding reception on the property. We had a great time with about 40 family and friends in attendance. The property was big enough to have the reception out on the grounds, allowing for catering and not fill cramped or limited.

This property allowed my daughters dreams to come true and for all to enjoy being a part of it. Thank you very much for allowing us to stay here.

Spacious, comfortable luxury!

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion was a complete success! We all loved the lodge, with pretty much every amenity you could ask for! The full kitchen saw much cooking and reminiscing. We made some of mom's recipes and talked about our dad's coin collecting hobby. The hot tub got alot of use, the theater was a hit with the younger crew! It was a quick trip to Bigfork for fun in the water and groceries, and don't forget fresh Flathead Cherries! We went to Lakeside and took a ride on the Far West for one afternoon, and to Kalispell for the Farmer's Market one morning. Other than that, we were "at home" in the lodge. Small gathering spots made it easy to get a little down time from the crowd. About the only thing I wished for was a window fan....The ac unit was a little noisy and it's more economical to have a window fan. It was HOT that week, with temps above 90 during the day.
