Guestbook comments from the owner

Sentinel Pine

Where dreams come true



Our daughters have fond memories of their enchanted life growing up on Swan Lake, which included special times at Sentinel Pine. Swan Lake is as romantic and beautiful as it sounds, so when they both were planning their weddings (just 20 days apart) it was natural that they would want to stage their events on their beloved Swan Lake.



During the first wedding my five sisters and their families and my father stayed at Sentinel Pine, which provided a perfect setting for our first family reunion in four years, with lots of fun on-site with volleyball, baseball, tennis, croquet, swimming, diving, and kayaking along with long laughter-filled meals and lively cribbage games capped off by musical performances by family members at the Main Lodge. Unlike other resorts where previous reunions were held, our family had the place to themselves, so it truly felt like one big happy family.



Our second daughter’s wedding was held at Sentinel Pine on a perfect summer day – 70s and sunny – a typical August day on Swan Lake. Family and close friends were seated lakeside during the ceremony held against Nature’s stage - beneath towering pines, next to a sheet of emerald water that slid into rugged mountains topped by endless blue skies. Afterwards guests enjoyed a casual yet beautiful reception in the shade of scented pine trees. A tent served as a bar and sitting area and tables perched above the lakeshore as an outdoor dining room. Family and close friends stayed at Sentinel Pine, which extended the fun of the wedding into a fun-filled vacation week.



At the end of summer we had new family members and a boatload of new memories. All made in a place where dreams really do come true.

Unbelievable vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My family vacation was perfect! The property seemed endless and was well maintained. The on-site caretaker made sure everything was in order and any questions we had were answered! The kids had plenty to do between the tennis, baseball field, and the dock on the lake (and more). We enjoyed drinks on the dock at night with breathtaking views of the sunset over lake and mountains.

Second Time Around --- Just as nice as before!

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time we stayed at Sentinel Pine and it was just as beautiful as it was the summer before. It was earlier in the season and the weather was not as warm, so the estate had a different feel to it. We spent more evenings inside the main lodge this time around, staying cozy and playing games. Though on the last day the sun came out and we were sunbathing on the dock again. Amazing kitchen for large group dinners, yet enough space for everyone to do their own thing during the day. Great venue for a large group! Owners were awesome in reserving, and the groundskeepers were attentive and helpful during our stay. A+! Again!

Gorgeous & Historical Lakeshore Estate is Perfect Mix of Relaxation, Activity for Every Age

Gorgeous & Historical Lakeshore Estate is Perfect Mix of Relaxation, Activity for Every Age
  • 5 of 5
Without a doubt one of the most enjoyable, unique and memorable places our extended family has ever stayed. There were enough activities to keep us all busy throughout the day, while there were also ample areas in which to relax in quiet. The town of Bigfork was easily accessible by car, yet not so close to impact our feeling of "getting away from it all".

It was the perfect balance of comfort and nature, and the daily activities could be molded to fit any age–from my 15-month-old daughter to my 86-year-old grandmother: Morning walks around the property; peaceful mid-morning kayak rides; lazy lunches on the dock; afternoon crafts on the lawn; delicious dinners in the lodge; post-dinner kickball games on the field; and lively card games into the wee hours.

The amazing on-site caretakers knew the property well, beautifully maintained everything inside and out, respected the privacy of all the guests, but were still readily available when we needed things. The owner was great in getting our trip planned, professional and trustworthy in all financial dealings, and flexible as to our large group's needs.

Will definitely plan a future weeklong stay there for a future family reunion. A+ in every regard!
