The Swan Hill Bed and Breakfast Review

I stay in a lot of B&B’s and most are unique and special in their own way. The Swan Hill Bed and Breakfast however might just make my top-10 list of favorites…especially the specific accommodations that I was privileged with. Not only is the general area of Flathead Lake spectacular, so are the grounds at Swan Hill. Located on thirteen acres with access to the water, it’s a wonderful place to relax and unwind.

The Swan Hill B&B is a huge home situated on a hill just above Flathead Lake (on the western side) in northwestern Montana. There are five guest rooms along with a lakeside cabin retreat (which is where I stayed). Each room is distinctly appointed and beautifully decorated with their own high-tech comfort control system. One set of rooms shares a bathroom, while the rest are all private. One of the rooms has a state-of-the-art shower system that looked like it was from the future. There is also over 4000sf of deck space that surrounds the house, so you’re sure to find a nice private spot to relax and take in the views or the wildlife.

Drew and Debbie (the proprietors) are two of the most hospitable hosts you’ll ever come across. They are incredibly knowledgeable about the area, both in history as well as accommodations such as restaurant recommendations.

If breakfast is your thing…you won’t be disappointed. Debbie whips up some delicious dishes. One of the mornings I was there she made Belgium waffles with some sort of fruit infused frozen dollop of sweet cream…oh my! Then there was a side of fresh fruit with grilled ham—and of course freshly brewed coffee and orange juice.

Some of the amenities at Swan Hill include:

  • Heated indoor swimming pool
  • Sauna
  • Trails through the property
  • Fire-pit with forested views of the lake
  • Kayaks and paddle boat
  • Books and movies

reserve the lakeside cabin…you won’t be disappointed. Their private cabin retreat is amazing! Located right on the water’s edge it has a Jacuzzi tub, fireplace, deck overlooking the water with table and chairs and a kitchenette in case you don’t want to leave. It’s very private and quite…you’ll sleep like a baby.
