About Diane Amalfitano

Our parents built our vacation home in 1983. We have raised our children there and grand children, spending every summer we could in Montana. It has now passed to my sister and I. We still try to spend some time every year at the lake house. We don't get there so much any more so we would like to share it with you now, so that you all can enjoy the beautiful green trees, clear air, blue skys, gorgeous lakes and small towns of northwestern Montana. We hope you will love it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful Glacier National Park in only a 55 minute drive. There you can hike and bike to your hearts content. Take a picnic lunch and relax in the meadow. Or drive to one of the famous lodges and pamper yourself with a delicious meal.

I've lived in Montana for 27 years but never had the opportunity to explore the Swan Lake area. What an amazingly beautiful part of the state! Our stay at this gem on the Lake was incredibly relaxing and fun. We rented paddle boards, brought our own kayaks and tubes and took full advantage of this wonderful lake. The house was immaculate, comfortable, spacious and the owners a pleasure to work with. Already booked our return trip for next summer! Looking forward to floating the Swan River on our next adventure!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Swan Lake for years! This was a wonderful place for our family and one of the best cabins we have stayed in. The house is older, but very well furnished and very comfortable and clean. The owners were great to work with. Loved the deck and the beautiful views and we ate most of our meals out on the deck so we could admire the view! My son-in-law loved fishing from the dock and there was plenty of room for our wave runner and boat. We will definitely be staying there again.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation. The kids, big and little, had a great time playing in the water. The bay was a nice quiet place to play. The paddle boat was a big hit! The house was very clean and nice. We felt right at home. We spent a lot of evenings on the deck visiting and admiring the view. We also ate most of our meals at the nice picnic table on the deck. We enjoyed one night at the supper club, which is also in the bay. The owners were very nice and helpful. Diane was quick to answer all my questions and emails and also prompt in returning my deposit. Thank you Diane and Harry for opening your beautiful home to us!

Second time, twice as much fun

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed at this great house on Swan Lake. The house is always immaculate and comes with everything you need. A wonderful place that makes you feel you are home, yet on this beautiful lake. Swan truly spoils you for any other lake location. The rooms are spacious, sleeps 8-9 easily, as one bedroom has a bunk bed plus a twin bed. We invited our entire family from Knoxville, Denver, Portland, Sandy UT, and everyone had a great time. From 18 months to 72 years of age there was fun for everyone. Turtle bay on Swan is quiet and relaxing, but still easy access to the entire lake. The rental comes with a nice dock and paddle boat. Highly recommend if you are looking for a relaxing fun Montana Lake location to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you.

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving at the property and walking out onto the deck we couldn't help stopping and admiring the view across the lake to the tree line ridge , the mountains thick with pine trees and the crystal clear water. Entering the house we found it very warm, cozy and inviting.

The kitchen was small but not a problem the rest of the home was very comfortable for 3 families with 3 young children. The spiral staircase worried the moms the first day but after rules and how to's were explained the kids and moms were fine.

It's a gorgeous property and views are outrageous. The boating was excellent , all the lake people were great. Nice and quiet.
