Where Scandinavian simplicity meets mountain cottage all in a Montana farmhouse. Our high-end furnished farmhouse sits on a sunny 1.25 acres. Large, grassy private front and backyard with tall pines and partially wooded.

Our house has been featured in six magazines (Sunset, This Old House, Cabin Living Christmas, Cabin Life, Country Polish and Only in Bigfork).

A spacious all equipped modern farmhouse kitchen with eat-in dining room.
All hardwood floors, accented with rugs. Barn-wood walls and barn-wood doors gives it a rustic cozy feel. Upstairs is a full master suite with queen bed, sitting/reading area, full bathroom with walk-in shower, double sinks, and closet. The master also features an antique iron toddler bed and plush bedding that also doubles as small sitting sofa encased in turn-of-the-century French grain sack fabric. The master suite is ideal for families or those seeking privacy.
Downstairs has a guest bedroom with a full size bed, living room with flat screen tv and dvd, laundry/mud room, and a full bath with an old soaking tub plus shower.
Huge wrap around porch looks over front lawn where deer frequently (every day and night) come through to eat apples.

High-end amenities include luxury linens, down comforters, heated mattress pads, white bath robes, fluffy white towels, EO French Lavender shampoo/conditioner/shower gel/lotion for all guests.

For the little ones, we have a toddler bed, toddler folding cot and pack-n-play. We also have a basket of toys, various baby and kid blankets plus plastic sip cups/plates/utensils.

Location

Bigfork, Montana, United States

Just 4.5 miles outside of downtown Bigfork, sits little mountain town of Ferndale.
Epic views of the Mission Mountain range are in view as you drive towards the house.
One half mile down the street is the Ferndale Market where you can grab local meats and other quick items. Also sells bait and tackle for the great fishing we have around this area.
Floating the lower swan river on tubes, float toys, or kayaks is a popular summer activity, highly recomend it.
1 mile down the opposite way is the Swan River boat ramp and hike/bike trail. The well maintained wide and flat trail runs along the Swan River and into downtown Bigfork, where there is great shopping, restaurants and bars.
Great mountain bike trails too! Beardance trail is a popular one, just up the mountain from the farmhouse.
The lakes and rivers and hiking are endless in this area. Jewel basin, Swan and Mission range offers more solitude hiking with incredible views, wildlife, and breathtaking scenary.
45 minutes to Whitefish and less than an hour from the west entrance to Glacier National Park.

Cottages have always had a unique place in our upbringing and in our family. Ryan grew up with a cottage of this era, although in the Midwest. The Midwest cottage was different in some ways, maybe architecturally, but certainly as impressionable. The story goes that the transaction for the cottage was performed by Ryan's grandfather, by meeting the prior owner in a bar with a bag of cash in hand. How different times must have been in this era. And so much is discovered in places like this. Whether it's antique fishing lures, or more simply, discovering in your youth that fishing lures actually even work! Or finding that one place in the forest, off the path, the sound of wind in the trees and you become curious ... maybe you are the first person who has ever been there. And now that one place is yours to share, or to revisit. The discoveries around cottages and cottage lifestyles, are indeed impressionable. Our family had the fortunate opportunity to acquire Crane Mountain Cottage in early 2018, from a talented and artistic couple. With pride we have opened up our cottage through Airbnb to like-minded folks. And together, we look forward to discovering, along with our guests.
