My husband and I manage our own vacation homes and do business under the name of Vacation Holdings. We are a trusted member of the Vacation Rental Industry and a member of the Professional Vacation Rental Association. We have been in business for over 10 years and have the highest integrity. We are not a management company these are all of our own properties. This enables us to describe the home in great detail. I am an interior designer so all of our homes have been designer decorated by the design arm of our company. In addition all of our vacation homes are maintained by a caretaker so that the property is well cared for and our guests are given individual attention. I respond to inquiries within 10 minutes of submission or give us a call as we are super easy to reach. We really try hard to exceed guests expectations!

Lisa Strauss - Swan Shores Lodge purchased this estate in 2005

We live full time in the San Juan Islands in the State of Washington and choose Montana because of its close proximity. We started in Whitefish and narrowed our search to the Flathead Valley as we were looking for a lakefront home. We settled on Swan Lake because it was less populated and the views of the Swan Mountains. Swan Shores Lodge was really an ugly duckling the bedrooms were painted shocking pink and baby blue. We were initially not wild about the house because most log homes are stained in a rustic brown whereas this one was stained in a dove gray. It needed some serious updating but the lakefront location and views were just magnificent. Fortunately, we had some vision and could see the potential with some updating and interior design touches. I decided to design around the dove grey stain, so instead of following a traditional rustic we went with a nautical theme and it worked. The end result is we ended up with a totally unique lakefront vacation home that is not like anything else you will find in the State of Montana

Lakefront, Lakefront, Lakefront...and being on Swan Lake which is a smaller lake that does not have a great deal of boat traffic. Having our own boat ramp is a real plus as well!

We caught lots of Fish

  • Submitted: Jul 27, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
Megan and Jeff sent us the nicest thank you note. They also sent us a photo of the fish they caught which you can see on our Swan Shores Lodge facebook page. Lisa, thank you so much for the sweet email, returning the deposit, setting up the deck and giving us directions around town, but most of all.. Allowing us to stay at your home and making it so cozy! We have captured a photo I thought you might enjoy! Our oldest sin caught a longnosed sucker fish that gave us a good laugh:-) We threw it back needless to say we did get rainbow trout and one pike and all of them right off your deck. We put a rod in every white pole that held the deck in place and just left the fishing poles alone. We caught so much fish off of that we had to keep putting them back!

Marvelous week of Beautiful Memories

  • Submitted: Dec 21, 2009
  • Stayed: Jun 2007
We just returned from our vacation at Swan Shores, and I wanted to personally thank you. This truly was a Spectacular Property! Our family was so pleased with the accommodations and our week there at Swan Lake was one of the best reunions we’ve had. Everyone kept thanking me for taking charge and finding this wonderful retreat. Thank you for working with me and making this whole experience so very enjoyable. I called your caretaker a couple times to report a few things, and he was also very nice to work with. I hope we can return again sometime in the future. My husband and I have already recommended this beautiful lodge to our friends for their family reunions. I have a feeling everyone who leaves Swan Shores is happy in spirit, but also saddened that their vacation must end. What a marvelous week of beautiful memories. Thanks again.

Wish we could have stayed there forever

  • Submitted: Dec 21, 2009
  • Stayed: Jul 2007
I wanted to thank you for renting us your beautiful home. We had one of the most memorable and wonderful times at Swan Lake and I know it was because of your home. There were a lot of tears from the children and the adults when we left this morning. We all wish we could have stayed there forever, the time goes by too quickly. We have rented homes at Swan Lake for over 30 years and this was the best. We hope to be fortunate enough to rent this property, as well as your other properties, in the future. Thank you for everything.
