A guest from Helena, MT recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 A very good vacation experience. A few things could be improved. Property in fair to good condition. A ladder on the dock for swimming would be a big help.
Property Manager Response: Response from Montana's Best Vacation Rentals Thanks for the review Jim. Glad you had such a good vacation. The planned remodel at this home in the coming months will certainly improve the condition of this home. We would be happy to you here again once it's complete. - the Montana's Best Team
Shannon F. from Riverton, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2015 Not on lake proper as advertised but excellent for large groupMain Home not very clean and not enough towelKitchen very well equipped Should have more than one DVD player
A guest from Vulcan, Alberta does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2015 Over all we had a great. This vacation rental is good for kids lots of room for them to play. The rental is showing its age, needs some upgrading but over all not in bad shape.
Sandra M. from Jersey City, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 Our family of 8 adults and two children had a wonderful stay. The water was very low so we didn't swim since the bottom is very muddy and you sink in. I would suggest they put in a ladder on the dock so you could go in and out from there. The kitchen had everything we needed and we loved the hot tub. The house wasn't clean when we arrived but they made it up to us and was very happy with their immediate attention to make us happy.
A guest from Saint Paul, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 We really enjoyed the week at the Swan Lake Chalet. The lake is beautiful and location is great. The house had plenty of room for our family and friends. I will say that this isn't a fancy house with new appointments but everything was functional.
Lori A. from Kalispell, MT recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2014 We had a great time at the property - ages 1 - 77. Duplicate kitchens were great - lots of room for storage. Wasn't fancy - but clean and mostly in good repair. Could not open fold out bed in living room - broken. Also, experienced strong sewer smell periodically (both inside and outside cabin).
Marilyn E. from Kalispell, MT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 The place was very family friendly, everything we could ask for was there for us. The north end of the lake where the chalet is located is very quiet and easy to paddle and swim. Love the little inlet where the chalet is located. Had a couple very hot days, could use another fan for the second bedroom upstairs.
A guest from Glendive, MT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 Enough room and kitchens to accommodate our group. There is no air conditioning so the house was hot by the afternoon. Kids loved swimming off the dock it's shallow and soft sand bottom.
A guest from Missoula, MT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 There were a lot of bugs in the basement rooms. We really enjoyed the guest house - decoration and furnishings in these rooms gave an overall cleaner appearance. There are so many rocks and shallow spots in the northern part of Swan Lake that are unidentified and made boat travel rough for individuals who are unfamiliar with this lake.
A guest from Killam, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in July, 2012 Our family enjoyed our stay at the Swan Lake Chalet! It was great that we had canoes and our own dock. We enjoyed the relaxing environment, watching the fly fishermen, water skiing and fishing on the lake! We hope to return to Swan Lake!!!
Daniel C. from Sun City, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 We gathered with our children and grandchildren for a week of fun. We loved that the house was big and roomy. The kitchen was well supplied and had everything we needed. (The oven, however, did not heat accurately.) The lake was flooding but the channel offered good access for canoeing and swimming. The hot tub was also a nice amenity. There seemed to be an unusual odor that came from the basement. We were unable to determine the source. The last night, there was a thunderstorm and a tree fell across the driveway. We could not access a chain saw to remove part of the tree and the property manager said she could not get someone out until later on Sunday. (We needed to get on the road!) We found a small bow saw and a small hatchet and used these to trim off the top of the tree so we could drive around the tree. Overall, we had a wonderful family vacation.
A guest from Calgary, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in August, 2010 We've vacationed in the Flathead Valley for the past few years now. This was our first visit to Swan Lake and our first visit to this property. We had three families together, which totalled, at the peak, 12 adults. This property is large, well laid out, very private and VERY quiet. Very nice rustic, forest environment with lots of wildlife (deer) roaming around. The main house and guest house were well appointed and suited all of our needs. Don't expect 5 Star accommodation with opulent furnishings. This is a vacation home that's got everything you need with lots or room. Lots of on-site parking (we had 4 vehicles and a boat trailer). The general area was great for hiking, jogging and cycling. We also brought along a 23 foot competition wakeboard boat. Once we learned about the lake and how to get in and out of the property, we had a great time (NOTE: learn about the lake and how to get in and out of the property BEFORE you put your boat in the water). We've rented lake side properties for the past 10+ years in Montana and British Columbia, Canada. Overall, we were very happy with this property, would rent it again and would certainly recommend it to others.
nice lake, not boat friendly, location of house fair
Tom F. from Happy Valley, OR does not recommend this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2008 Although the lake is beautiful and in a beautiful location,it is quite shallow at this end, a warning as to that would have saved us a propeller on the boat! The view from the house is limited due to a little island, also not clear from the description. A picture from the deck would have been instructive. The swimming mentioned in the description is also not much, basically floating in this little channel, with the bottom mucky and covered with thorny branches. the home is good for a large group. the price is high given the limitations.
Michael G. from Earlysville, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2008 We Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the chalet. Wonderful, safe place for children (we had our three grandchildren with us - ages 2-6). Beautiful sceanic site. Loved boating on beautiful lake and fishing (or at least trying to catch something). House had all necessary equipment for cooking - both inside and out.Amy was most helpful in making our vacation a very positive one.Our only suggestion is to upgrade the mattresses in two double beds (one on each floor). They are beginning to really sag in the middle.Thank you very much for a great vacation experience.
A guest from Lehi, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2007 Beautiful location, great access to Swan Lake, perfect accommodations for large family! We enjoyed Swan Lake much more than Flathead Lake.
