RIVERSIDE CABINS, SLEEP 32+, FISH POND, MOUNTAINS, FLOATING, FAMILY FUN.
Why Doug Wold chose Bigfork
We bought this 10 acres in 2000 as a family retreat. We rebuilt and enlarged the main cabin and built three smaller cabins, one for each of our three children. We had so much company, we next built a bunkhouse with 8 bunks, a half-bath, and two bedrooms, each with a loft. We lived at the retreat for about 4 months a year for about 10 years. It is nicely furnished with quality items. Two of our children moved out of state, so three years ago we decided to make it available as a vacation rental. We have been fortunate in that our guests have all been very respectful of the property, and understand it is special, and not a regular commercial venture.

This property is everything that is advertised, the owner is caring and engaged. The location is somewhat secluded, if you need a true get away from life week this is your location. We had amazing times around the fire and the covered porch is unbelievable outdoor living space. It feels and looks like the river runs directly under the porch from inside the house. We would rent this again in a heartbeat, so ditch your cell phones and the kids xbox and remember what it feels like to enjoy your family again.. great stay. True gift for the owners to share this with us!!
A beautiful spot, perfect for larger groups
The place is situated right on the river, feels very private, and comfortably accommodated our family reunion of 17 people ages 5 weeks to 72 years. The cabins are beautifully done, and the place includes great extras like lawn games and a large fire pit with marshmallow sticks hanging nearby. We ate meals at the long table on the porch, and the propane heater kept us comfortable even with cooler fall temperatures. We recommend paper plates if you have a group bigger than ours, and be sure you have room in someone's car to fit in the garbage on the way home. My favorite memory is sitting around the fire pit knitting with my cousins and watching the avid fishermen in our group catching trout. Thanks to the Wold family for sharing this magical place!
Perfect week at a perfect place.
Our family, 31 of us, gathered at the Swan River Retreat in July 2018 for a family reunion. The facility was perfect for our needs. The cabins featured comfortable beds, beautiful furnishings and a gorgeous location on the banks of the beautiful Swan River. Group meals were prepared in a fully-stocked kitchen and consumed together on the covered deck overlooking the river. With Glacier Park, Holland Lake, Flathead Lake and other outdoor destinations close by, the Swan River Retreat was a perfect place to gather for a week of fun and strengthening family ties. The Wolds were great hosts and had the property clean and ready for our arrival. We would highly recommend this property for an outstanding Montana experience!
A fantastic property!
We recently held our family reunion at the Swan River Retreat in Big Fork, Montana. The property was everything we had hoped for. The large yard allowed the younger kids plenty of room to play and the deck overlooking the river gave the adults a place to gather and catch up on family stories. We especially liked the 3 spacious cabins which gave individual families the ability to wake or sleep on their own schedules. The kitchen in the main house worked perfectly for preparing and serving meals for 25 people. The location of the property was perfect for enjoying the many close by day hikes and small lakes. This was a great place for our family reunion and was enjoyed by all of us. Thank you to Doug for letting us share this beautiful property.
This is a great place ! There were 16 of us and we had lots of room and the setting is beautiful. Even with warm weather it was nice and shaded, everyone loved it. However you should be aware that the owner expects you to get rid of the trash. It is 24 miles to the transfer station and we did not have room with running people to the airport. The cleaning fee is just a starting point, we left it clean and he added more cost to be deducted from the security deposit as well as added charge for the trash.
Lovely spot. Quiet, private, peaceful.
We enjoyed a wonderful week's stay with family from home and abroad. We found plenty to do within a short distance: Glacier Park, Whitefish Mt., hike, boating. The property itself is great for kid activities and frequent swims in the stream. Everyone was comfortable. We highly recommend the Swan River Retreat .
