Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the "Second Story Hideaway" in Bigfork. It was very clean and nicely furnished. It's in a convenient location to access shops, restaurants and walks along the Swan River and parks around Flathead Lake as well as Glacier National Park.

Our hosts were helpful in recommending different sights in the area.

Prefect Rental

  • 5 of 5

This rental is a wonderful place to stay. We rent this place every summer. It is a perfect getaway place. The location is absolutely perfect for downtown, walking distance. The rental is very clean, easy access, very cozy place. It has its own parking which is great for the busy downtown.
