About Denise

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 purchased this condo in 2005

Why Denise chose Flathead Lake

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.

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. Reserving this property with Denise will also save you from paying the additional online credit card processing fee!

This condo was an excellent place to stay for my family who spent our days traveling to and from Glacier National Park. It was a real treat to come back every day to the comfort of a bed and have access to both a full kitchen and a washer and dryer. I would recommend this rental to anyone thinking about it. Its absolutely perfect!

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Although I live in Bigfork, I spent a lot of time at the condo, visiting relatives staying here. My favorite thing to do was to sit on the deck overlooking the Swan River, visiting and watching people on kayaks navigate the river. We walked from the condo around town exploring all that Bigfork has to offer with fine dining, live theatre and wonderful shops and art galleries. My relatives loved staying at the condo, it was very comfortable for them. It's very tastefully decorated and even has books and magazines for reading. A perfect home away from home!

Wow! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I wish we could stay here longer! Condo is a mix of Italian palazzo and craftsman style. Large wood deck overlooks a raging river of mountain runoff. Bed is comfortable, kitchen has a few basic supplies, and washer/dryer is a bonus. TV is very small to watch from couch, but the picturesque scenery is what this is all about. Located in a professional building housing a lawyer, natural oil mfg, and counselors, it was a little hard to find. But the reward! 'Brookies Cookies" is located at the end of the building. Best choc. chip cookies ever! We drove 45 minutes into West Glacier for a daytrip. Best to go in late June or later - Road to Sun was only open first 16 miles - not to the summit.

This condo provided us the best vacation rental experience we have ever had.

Friendly folks with whom to work, very clean condo and awesome scenery. It's the best!

Adorable condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Bigfork over Labor Day weekend and stayed in this adorable condo. The location was perfect- walked to nearby restaurants, shops, etc. The condo is clean, comfortable, and just perfect! We loved sitting outside on the deck daily, overlooking the running river. The condo was equiped with everything you might need during your stay, including a queen size bed and a pull out sofa sleeper. We will definitely return again next year!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the unit for about a week in August 2013 and had a great time. On one hand I was in the middle of town being close to restaurants, coffee shops, and downtown events. On the other, from the back porch being right on the Swan River, you felt as if you had a private getaway all on your own.

The unit has a very nice kitchen stocked with everything you might need and is well maintained and decorated as one would expect a Montana residence would be. The living room is a great meeting place and the bedroom is quiet and comfortable.

The location is wonderful. From walking to the lake to hiking along the river to simply walking across the parking lot to get the best burger in town, this condo was very convenient to everything I wanted to do. It's one of those places that you ask yourself after arriving "why don't I do this more often".

I've always had a wonderful time there and many good memories to boot. I'll definately be back! CRW

Nice Location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful relaxing place to stay. Very clean and comfortable with sound of running river made this a great place to spend a few days on the way to see Glacier National Park. My husband had two great days of fishing the Flathead River also. Would recommend this location. Nice to enjoy being able to grill your dinner on the back deck.
