All that we had hoped for.
We had a fabulous time at Sentinel Pine! It was truly a dream come true. We wanted it to be special because we were celebrating our 50th anniversary and in every way it could not have been better!! Our group consisted of 5 families, with 10 adults and 15 cousins from 9 to 21 years old. The accommodations really worked out well and gave the children a chance to sleep over with a different family when they wanted. The children and the adults were not on their cell phones and we didn't even think about TV. We felt like we had our own private camp...the kayaks, row boat, paddle boards, fishing poles, diving board and all the sports equipment were used. They had a wonderful time playing and exploring, skipping rocks, catching crawfish, fishing, playing tennis, looking for arrowheads, swimming and then staying up in the main lodge until the wee hours of the morning playing poker. We also had a great time going into Glacier National Park, rafting and horseback riding. Going to the Big Fork Summer Playhouse was a real treat and both children were really impressed with the quality of the production. Tom (the onsite caretaker) was very attentive to our needs! He could not have been more helpful in his suggestions for hiking trails and just answering any questions we had. He took Bob and I out to pick huckleberries so the next morning we made huckleberry pancakes for everyone. That was truly a Montana treat!!
We hated to leave this beautiful property. It was so nice to just sit on the dock or in a lawn chair in the evening and soak in the beauty we were surrounded by. Our whole family also enjoyed the ball field in a competitive game of kick ball and we loved seeing the deer grazing on it in the mornings or evenings. Our week at Sentinel Pine is something we will always cherish!!! Sincerely, Elaine and Bob
Dear Jim –
Wanted to personally thank you again for the extraordinary week our group spent at your Sentinel Pine property. We get together every year, are very close and are not easily impressed. But we met our match this time. We have people of all kinds – single, married with kids, married without kids – you name it. We never had our get together out West, let alone in a place as evocative, accommodating and impressive as yours. Everyone was overwhelmed and had an amazing time, including the young kids, who will have unforgettable memories of that week for the rest of their lives. From the gorgeous main lodge, to the charming cabins, to the extraordinary lake, to the attention to detail in every field, nook and cranny, to the amazing environs (Glacier, Jewel Basin, Bigfork and much, much more) we couldn't have asked for a more unique and special experience. Your caretaker Tom, who has been in the hospitality business for years, was incredibly attentive to all of us and wonderfully sensitive to the needs and nature education of the kids. A vacation like this is not inexpensive, but the joy and camaraderie that your remarkable property brought to each and every one us will stay with us for a very long time – it is a remarkable value. Thank you again for enabling us to share this magical place, which is so clearly infused with the love of the family that has nurtured it for generations and which stands today as the sentinel that it is: an indelible and majestic part of the history of its spectacular surroundings.

Bucket List Trip!
If you're looking for a Montana adventure that includes Glacier National Park, Fishing, hiking, wildlife, etc. or just want to disconnect and get away from it all then Sentinel Pine is the place to stay. We started our days with coffee on the huge porch overlooking the pristine Swan Lake and ended our days with dinner on the huge 20 foot long handmade dining room table. Deserts consisted of a glass of Red on the dock while watching the fish jumping during incredible Montana sunsets, or a good book, a toasty fire in the huge main lodge fireplace and a cocktail. (You'll sleep like a baby every night!) In between we experienced the all the beauty western Montana has to offer including Glacier National Park, fantastic fishing and kayaking on the Swan and Montana wildlife of just about every kind.
While en-route to Montana I was offered advice by 2 different people at 2 different airports to fish with the same guide. How could I go wrong! During the full day float trip down the Swan River I boated 15 fish from 5 different trout species. This was definitely a bucket list trip!
Sentinel Pine is a cozy and well maintained private home on the shores of Swan Lake which is surrounded by snow caped (thru Mid June) mountains. The two main buildings are beautifully handcrafted traditional log cabins and decorated in a manner that bring you back to a simpler time. The décor, especially the wide wrap around porch of the main lodge brought back memories of my grandparents and growing up in the 60’s and 70’s.
Thanks to the owners and their caretaker, we had the best vacation in years. What a special place.
My family vacation was perfect! The property seemed endless and was well maintained. The on-site caretaker made sure everything was in order and any questions we had were answered! The kids had plenty to do between the tennis, baseball field, and the dock on the lake (and more). We enjoyed drinks on the dock at night with breathtaking views of the sunset over lake and mountains.
An Exceptional Vacation Experience
I wanted to let you know what an incredible time our wedding party of 25 guests had at the Sentinel Pine in early August, it exceeded even our already very high expectations. There is no place like NW Montana, no place like Swan Lake and there is simply no place like the Sentinel Pine on Swan Lake. We felt so very special to be able to stay there. We had guests in virtually every bed and there were arguments in the evening trying to decide who had the best accommodations as they were all terrific. Special thanks to Robert and Carol who had the place looking great when we arrived and who were there to answer all our questions and provide assistance. The kids and adults loved hanging out on the dock and we were all shocked when my young nephews figured out that a simple, well-placed night crawler over the side would raise a number of fairly large trout. We would recommend the Sentinel Pine to anyone, and I must say that it was an outstanding value, well worth every penny for sure. We look forward to a return stay in future summers, and wish you the best.
Second Time Around --- Just as nice as before!
This was the second time we stayed at Sentinel Pine and it was just as beautiful as it was the summer before. It was earlier in the season and the weather was not as warm, so the estate had a different feel to it. We spent more evenings inside the main lodge this time around, staying cozy and playing games. Though on the last day the sun came out and we were sunbathing on the dock again. Amazing kitchen for large group dinners, yet enough space for everyone to do their own thing during the day. Great venue for a large group! Owners were awesome in reserving, and the groundskeepers were attentive and helpful during our stay. A+! Again!
