Awesome place.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a girl's road trip. The house is so comfortable. There was plenty of room for all of us. While some of us enjoyed the poo,l others relaxed in the living room or watched movies in the family room. The dining room table was big enough for all of us to gather for meals or games.The kitchen had every appliance we could ask for. The bedrooms were very quiet, each with an on suite bathroom. We had such a good time that we are already discussing our next visit!!

Misleading not on water, needs repairs and good deep cleaning

  • 2 of 5

Very disappointed, this property is not on nor near the water as indicated in description or pictures. It is a half mile hike up steep hill to dock and small area on slope to banks of Flathead Lake. The house was dirty needed good cleaning, bbq was filthy had not been cleaned in very long time had old food in bottom took us over 30minutes to clean it so we could use, kitchen grill was cool but we had to clean out full grease trap that stunk, pool was unusable for 4 days due to no Bromelein added (had 0) we had to go buy our own test strips as we knew it looked untreated and repeatedly asked managers to add chemicals. Deck was in dangerous disrepair with boards rotted popping up when you walked, not nailed down, almost fell through a couple of times. We were given 1 dish towel for 7day stay and 1 towel each for entire week, home was not well stocked with basic utensils and supplies such as dish soap, forks, bowls had to request for more utensils. All rooms very dated except master bedroom which was roomy and comfortable. Cabin on lake was cute and nice best part of whole property. Except we had to haul all the garbage up the 1/2 mile steep hill to garbage cans. Main house I would not reccommend especially for the costs compared to homes truly on the lake and all the deferred maintenance.

Owner's Response: Hi Tami, Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we always appreciate feedback! We would never intentionally mislead anyone, and we do state multiple times in the listing that the main house is up a hill (about 150 yards) from the shore, but the property itself goes all the way to the lake and includes the dock and cabin. The smaller cabin that we also rent is right on the water, and most people bring the trash from the cabin to the house trash bins in their car - no need to haul it up! We encourage everyone to carefully read the listing and to contact us if they have any questions! We enjoy what we do and take pride in providing a clean and comfortable home for our guests. We ask that people clean the grill and griddle prior to checking out and we usually check that that has been done. It's totally possible that we missed a dirty grill and, if so, we apologize! We're not sure why there was difficulty finding supplies in our well-stocked kitchen. Extra soap is located right under the sink with multiple sets of dishes and utensils in cupboards and drawers. There are plenty of towels and other supplies. That being said, our guests should always feel like they can get in touch with us if they can't find something! We take the maintenance of the pool seriously. The chemical we use is called Bromine and it is tested before and after each arrival. The test we did on the day of arrival showed the correct amount of Bromine, .4 parts per million (ppm). We were happy to test the pool again mid-week at the request of the guest and it still showed .4ppm Bromine. When they still weren't satisfied, we gladly took the time to teach someone in the party how to use the professional pool testing kit approved by the state that we use. The pool was always in perfect balance during their stay and we are sad to hear that they didn't allow themselves to enjoy it!

Perfect set up for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house. Well stocked and very comfortable with air conditioning, great beds, lots of pillows and supplies. Perfect set up for our extended family group of 14, we only needed one additional blow up bed which was provided along with bedding. Lisa and Michael were great hosts, lovely people and very helpful. Note: the lakefront is a good trek from the house especially on the way back up carrying gear and I suggest folding lawn chairs to take to the dock. Beautiful property , Thank you for the holiday !!

Owner's Response: Hi Barbara, Thanks so much for your kind review, and we are glad that you had such a good time! Bringing folding chairs down to the dock is a great idea! There is such a beautiful view down there. We hope you come again!

Beautiful time of year!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Lake Cabin in early October and the weather was great. Swan Hill had kayaks and a paddleboat available which we used most days. It was not as secluded as we had initially thought, but at that time of year the lake and neighboring cabins were desolate. The cabin itself was very accommodating and had all the basic amenities we needed to make our meals (breakfast wasn't included due to being at the Lake Cabin). Great area with lots to do within an hour. Thanks Swan Hill B&B!

One of the best weekends this year!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my husband's birthday weekend and it turned out to be one of the best birthdays ever. We arrived in the dark; I knew the instant my kids woke up in the morning, because I heard my daughter say "Wow!"

Even though I was dying to sit with my cup of coffee and watch the birds on the lake, I didn't want to get out of bed because the feather bed and comforter were the coziest things on earth. We cranked up the wood stove and played Monopoly for an hour or so then went swimming (!) in the lovely heated pool for the rest of the morning. What cabin in Montana has a heated swimming pool?? I gather the pool can be rented by small groups, but we were the only ones there.

My whole plan was to have a quiet family weekend together and something about this cabin made everyone want to cozy up by the stove and hang out together: success!!

I took the kayak out and paddled for an hour in the afternoon, exploring the incredible coastline and waterfowl.

The owners were super helpful and welcoming. I would HIGHLY recommend this cabin for a couple or small family.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you all had such a wonderful time. Sounds like the kids really had fun. The Swan Hill Lake Cabin is indeed one of the sweetest 1bedroom vacation rentals on the lake; and you are right to wonder... Who in Montana offers the use of a HEATED POOL as a art of a cabin rental?!! We are glad to share the Swan Hill Bed and Breakfast pool with our cabin renters. Hope to see you next year! Blessings! Kimberly
