Swan Riverfront Vacation Home - Bigfork
From the deck, the hot tub or the fire pit watch bald eagles and ospreys fish the river. Geese and ducks spend a lazy afternoon in the cool, sparkling water. Deer and wild turkeys are at home in the front yard. The crisp, clean Montana mountain air is refreshing to the body and soul and the vast night sky is filled with countless brilliant stars. Trout fishing is right in front of the house! You can tube float down the river. And fall asleep to the sound of the rippling water. The awesomeness of nature!
Want a break from the busyness of city life? You will love it here!
