This is a charming B&B, nestled in a grove of trees with lots of grass in the very large yard. We stayed for two nights and awoke in the mornings to find lots of deer in the back yard, including three fawns who proceeded to entertain us with their frolicking. The rooms are very quiet and the bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in in my life. Megan is an outstanding cook and the gourmet breakfasts would satisfy anyone's appetite. I, personally, don't usually eat breakfast, but couldn't resist the tempting plates set before me each morning. This is a great place to stay and we would definitely stay again when we are in the area.

We enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. Things we didn't expect were 1. The hot tub is not available for use during the winter. 2. The bathroom for the room we were staying in (Wilderness Queen) had a private bathroom but you had to go out into the hall to get to it. The breakfast was very gourmet, the innkeeper very friendly and helpful with advice about the area, and the bathtub was awesome for soaking in.

We went to Bigfork and stayed at the Candlewycke Inn sight unseen and loved them both. Megan's hospitality offers a good location, a charming inn, attention to detail and creative and delicious breakfasts. We would like to return.

At the end of a week of tough hiking in the Glacier National Park with my wife, the most beautiful mountains I found so far on the American continent, the Candlewycke Inn turned out to be an oasis of quiet, elegant and friendly rest place. We will recommend it to all friends who are willing to take on the 10 hrs. door-to-door trip which we had to endure from our East Coast abode. It is well worth it although in the same time we could have been in Europe. At least you do not need a passport. The in-depth knowledge of local dining by the gracious, friendly and helpful hosts, all 4 of them including the pets, is worth mentioning in addition to all the superlatives that the other guests have rightly heaped on them. They had all the menus in town available to us, with “inside” tips for what to order and what to avoid, depending on your personal tastes. And restaurants in Bigfork are truly worth patronizing: a surprising wealth of choices and quality in what we thought was a remote place. I am afraid it will not remain a secret for very long.

Cooking....Good thing, huh? Skiing, hiking, snowmobiles, movies, music, meeting new people and assisting with activity planning to ensure you the best vacation during the time allowed. Now that list is a wish list with the impending knee replacement. I bring over exchange students each year from Moldova, Ukraine, Slovakia which is my way of providing new experiences to students and myself as we learn from each other.
