Discover Bigfork, Montana

Swan River Inn is your basecamp to Montana adventure

Bigfork, Montana, is a place unlike any other.

The tiny village sits on a quiet bay at the northeast end of Flathead Lake, with the towering Swan Mountains setting a majestic backdrop.

In this community of about 1,500 people — which triples that size in the summer — nothing has been left out, for the resident or for the visitor. Stunning scenery and recreation, abundant wildlife, lively cultural activities and performing arts make Bigfork a place you want to come back to again and again. The town sits at the confluence of the Swan River and Flathead Lake, and this is where the Swan River Inn hosts visitors from around the world.

Our rooms are an eclectic mix of international design themes from owner Margrit Matter. Her design sense is rooted in a philosophy that design is meant to enhance the life of the user, so her rooms, suites and homes all have a distinct goal and design direction.

With the Swan River Inn as your basecamp you can explore sailing on Flathead Lake, horseback riding, canoeing, hiking, wildlife watching, fishing and so much more.
