Guestbook comments from the owner
We are sorry there are no reviews here, but we just purchased this house in November. We did go back to Bigfork for Christmas and decided to stay in the house to see what it was like. It was very pleasant and cozy. The river was beautiful even in the winter! Can't wait for the summer! This is a wonderful house that would be perfect for a summer stay. The boat dock is close and ready for fun. We will do everything possible to make your stay the best.
