About Randle Phelps

My wife and I have been in the building and development business for 35 years. I grew up in the Ozarks and she in the desert of southern California. Today we are hanging our hats in Vegas.

Randle Phelps purchased this house in 2012

Why Randle Phelps chose Bigfork

This home was a labor of love to build. The location on the Swan River is one of the best. The locals who float the river claim that Eagle's Nest is the "coolest on the river"! It offers tranquility and peace as well as comfortable elegance in a rustic setting. Eagles Nest features all of the modern conveniences as well as reclaimed wood from a few very historic sites in Montana and Wisconsin.

Let me start by saying WOW!!!!!! We were impressed from the moment we pulled up to the house. You walk into the house and what is the first thing that catches your eye? The RIVER!!! We had a group of 8 and there was plenty of room. The owner Randle was extremely helpful from start to finish. He made sure we arrived safe and had everything that we needed. He even gave us suggestions on what to do and where to go. I could not have asked for anything more. We look forward to staying here again the next time we are in Montana. Thank you Randle!

Owner's Response: Hey Danny I am very glad you and your family enjoyed your first trip to Montana!! We would love to have you back again! When I built Eagles Nest, I changed the downstairs layout dramatically from my original blueprints in order to give a panoramic view of the river so it was cool to see your review and mention it! Thank you! Randle

4 Amazing Days @ The Eagle's Nest!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the Eagle's Nest!! We were in Montana for the Spartan Race. We were two couples & their three children ages 6-8. Everything about the Eagle's Nest takes you out of your everyday life and into a mode of relaxation. We went to sleep listening to the river. We sat on the back porch any chance we could to enjoy the water and/or the firepit. The kitchen is a cook's dream. It is huge with plenty of prep room and upscale appliances. The neighborhood is very quiet. We saw deer every evening when we went out for a walk. We also loved the area for running. Mr. Phelps called me a few days before we left to see if I had any questions & gave me some last minute instructions. He checked in with me our first morning to make sure everything was going well. He is very attentive & wants to make sure you enjoy every minute of your time in his home. We truly had a wonderful time in this house The kitchen is well stocked & there were plenty of bath towels. We hope we get to come back to the Eagle's Nest in the future & would give it 10 stars if we could!!

Great location, beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Eagles Nest. The home is beautiful and very spacious. The kitchen was a great gathering place and I loved the appliances:) My favorite part of the day was the morning, taking my coffee outside and smelling the wonderful fresh pine air. The kids liked tubing and we even staged a pirate treasure hunt on the small island across from the house. I would highly recommend staying here, the owner and caretaker are extremely easy to work with and went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be. Thank you all so much!!

You will not find a nicer home in the area!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely perfect for our family vacation. A well built and beautiful home that you are sure to enjoy. And the location of the house is great for touring the area in and around Glacier National Park.

better than it looks!

  • 5 of 5

All too seldom, you are surprised by something BETTER in person than the images or description. this property is indeed much nicer and complete than the images indicate! The building is finished well; all the kitchen items in place and the furnishings fit in beautifully. the house is close to the river and the sounds are intoxicating at night - it just could not be better. the fire pit is the center of the day and evenings and a perfect size. small touches like dimmable lighting, and great TV's make the stay feel like home. the layout works so well for 3 or 4 couples. By far, probably the best value in the local rental market!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! The fire pit on the patio is a big favorite of everyone! When I designed the home and the location on the river we wanted it close to the water so you could listen to it ripple by. Come back any time!

Great time spent at the Eagle's Nest.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and I would recommend it to friends etc. Location was really nice in that it sat on the river and we enjoyed having morning coffee and evening drinks outside watching and listening to the river. The owner was helpful, responsive and very inviting, even offering some great advice on local attractions and excursions.

Great time!
