About Denise (property manager)

My wife and have lived in Bigfork since 1996. We are both professionals and moved to Bigfork from Phoenix for the unmatched beauty of Bigfork and the wonderful quality of life.

Denise (property manager) purchased this Condo in 2005

Why Denise (property manager) chose Bigfork

The condo unit sits right on the banks of the Swan River as it flows into Flathead Lake. It is beautifully decorated and when you sit on the large private 240 sq. ft. deck, you see and hear nothing but the woods, river - and any wildlife that may be walking or flying by. Please note shared access to condo entryway and front door.

What makes this Condo unique

The condo sits on the beautiful and peaceful banks of the Swan River which runs along the edge of Bigfork. It is a minutes walk to Flathead Lake and some of the finest restaurants, galleries and shopping you could hope for. It is also a short walk to biking, hiking and fishing etc. World class golf, snow skiing and cross country skiing are just minutes away. As an added bonus in reserving our property and improving your experience we have hired Denise Grenier owner of Eagle Bend Flathead Vacation Rentals. Since it's inception in 1989 Denise has managed luxury properties in the Flathead Valley and is there for you 24/7 assisting you with the best customer service in the valley.

                                                                Alyson H.

                                                                Well appointed condo in beautiful location on Swan River. We were here in the fall and the autumn colors were breathtaking. Short walk to historic downtown Bigfork for fun shopping. Another short walk to an out and back walking path (4 miles round trip) that parallels the Swan River too.

                                                                Awesome place - awesome location

                                                                Mark D.

                                                                In the middle of the little town of Bigfork...the back deck over looks the river and flathead lake is 75 yards away....very nice condo.

                                                                The Best of Both Worlds!

                                                                Paula M.

                                                                This place is right on Swan River and has a huge deck with lounge chairs, a dining table, and a gas grill. It it so private and peaceful out there and yet it is 1 block off of Electric Ave. and from the Bigfork Summer Playhouse! The unit is lovely and has a full size ( maybe it's a queen) pull out bed that we utilized too. We want to go back because it was so perfect for us!

                                                                very nice and peaceful when river is running strong

                                                                Laramie P.

                                                                clean, cozy, and the back deck/river is the main attraction. Peter and Tana are very friendly and helpful, but not at all intrusive. Denise, the property manager, is great and very attentive. only drawbacks are not having a door on the bedroom, limited air flow in the bedroom, and being a downstairs unit with people above. Would definitely recommend this unit!

                                                                Perfect place to experience Big Fork and Glacier National Park

                                                                Mathew S.

                                                                My wife and I stayed at the Bearisters Den in Big Fork (this is my second time here!) on a longer road trip/honeymoon before we went backpacking in Glacier National Park. The condo is fantastic, well appointed and incredibly comfortable. It has everything you'd need for staying in & cooking (we caught our own fish and cleaned & cooked them in the house) or, if you prefer going out - all of Big Fork is out your door and nothing is more than a ten minute drive. The deck is fantastic, with the river out back rushing along, deer poking in and out, and (so we were told) even larger wildlife visible right from the comfort of your living room every once in a while. Peter & Tana were incredibly responsive and happy to provide suggestions if we had any questions - I wouldn't hesitate to stay here anytime I'm in the area and hope to be so again soon.

                                                                Loved this Condo, Great Experience

                                                                Bobby C.

                                                                The condo was an excellent location to stay for my wife, our mini schnauzer, and me. We had five great nights there. We also had a chance to meet the owners' s and they are great people. The condo is in a great location and the views of the Swan River are great. Everything about the condo exceeded our expectations. We hate to leave due to our great experience.

                                                                Denise was wonderful to work with.

                                                                We would highly recommend this location for a great experience.
