We were in the hotel for business and did not need a room, but I have to say that the owner was beyond helpful and went way above and beyond for us. Her staff was also very friendly and helpful, and the dining room was very nice. I will definitely look here first whenever I need a hotel in Bigfork!

I booked a room through booking.com, which stated that cancellation and prepayment policies vary according to room. When I booked, nowhere did it mention that my specific room's cancellation would be $50. Given that my trip is three weeks away and the owner would have no problem filling the room, I tried to reason with her on the phone. She...

I didn't know what to make of the mixed extreme reviews but after staying here for two nights I completely understand. This place is super quirky and the owner is a bit brash and disorganized, (when she is there). Our room was the leather and lace room, so if you like cow hide headboards and lace curtains you may want...

This place could have been wonderful. However, the owner is highly disorganized, and put us in the wrong room. This would not be a problem if she had have charged the rate for the room we had actually booked, but instead we got a surprise bill on our credit card of almost triple the cost we had originally booked through...

So cute, comfortable, friendly! Amazing themed rooms ours was the French Country and it was perfect in comfort, style, and accessibility. Staff bent over backward to arrange our stay. Highly recommend this place as it is right next to the marina, downtown.

This is definitely not a cookie cutter , 4 walls with a bathroom type hotel. Go to the Hampton in Kalispell for the same price if you want the sterile, corporate experience. If you want flavour, ambiance, and something that has been built with sweat, vision and passion book the Swan River Inn. Margarit is amazing and her rooms are...

With parents out from Australia, we took them on a Montana road trip. We needed a spot in which to catch up, cook and drink wine on a deck. Enter the Swan River Inn, specifically the Tuscan Suite. Honestly, we opened the door and our jaws dropped. It is HUGE with an excellent kitchen (though weirdly without any sharp knives),...

My wife and stayed at Margarit's inn and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were delayed by weather and called ahead. Margarit's prepared a dinner for us because all the restaurants were closed. It was great!

We stayed here as had read that it was quite a unique hotel. We were not disappointed. From the outside it doesn't look like a hotel but there is a box by the door which is where our key and paperwork was. We had booked a standard room so wasn't sure on what we would get but when we finally...

Margrit (the owner) has really outdone herself! Her impeccable taste and dedication/hard work shows through her business!!! We stayed in the Arabian nights the first night and two days later came back and stayed in the geisha!! We absolutely love the Swan River Inn. The wine and popcorn is fantastic! The food even better!!!! We didn't want to leave!!!

“Try to stay in either one of the rooms in the main property or downstairs at the back.”
  • Bedroom area,spacious,clean but basic
  • Bed, look out for the thing up top, its like some hard carboard or something
  • The impractical but cool face basin, essentially useless.
  • Bath area. spacious and clean
  • Toilet & Bath, did not get a view of the showerhead but that thing stings!!!!
