A retired fly fishing enthusiast living the summer on the beautiful Swan River in northwest Montana. In addition to caring for our riverfront home, tending our vegetable garden and nurturing our perennials, as a certified fly fishing instructor and fly tier, I enjoy teaching fly casting and all the intricate nuances of the sport. I relish the food of my heritage and am blessed with my wife, Virginia, who as an accomplished chef, teaches cooking, enjoys knitting and painting landscape scenes. I love to float the 5 miles from Swan Lake to the takeout on our property, catching rainbow trout along the way. Leisure is reading mystery novels. Fly fishing floats, fly casting lessons, river tube floating and other outdoor activities can be easily arranged. I can also supply all fly fishing equipment. Just let me know your desires. The cottage is available from May 1st to October 31st.
Vince and Virginia are wonderful hosts and strive to make your stay at their English Cottage enjoyable with all you need. Their very clean cottage is located near the river with a beautiful view. We wish we would have booked more days at their place to enjoy all the activities around Bigfork. The cottage is also close to Glacier National Park for day trips. Virginia and Vince are easy to work with and great resources for local activity recommendations. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
I stayed at the cottage for a long weekend while I was in Bigfork for a wedding. Vince and Virginia were so welcoming and flexible. The property is breathtakingly beautiful and the accommodations are clean and comfortable. I loved enjoying my morning coffee and delicious homemade baked good (courtesy of Virginia) on reclining chairs on the banks of the Swan River. I highly recommend staying here and will do so myself if I'm ever back in the area.
We had a fantastic time at the cottage on the Swan. It was so peaceful and relaxing. We also had great hosts! Thanks for everything, Vince & Virginia!!!
What a beautiful and cozy retreat! Our hosts were extremely hospitable...we feel a kinship to them now. This provides a fabulous view of the river and if you float the river then you are able to get out right at the cottage. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend booking this cottage if you are headed to Glacier or simply want a place to let your cares melt away.
