Travelers and locals agree that the short drive from Bigfork to the village of Swan Lake is well worth it…not only for the marvelous scenery along Swan Lake, but for what awaits you in the dining room at Laughing Horse Lodge. The menu at the Horse features the freshest organic produce available, along with exceptionally tender, aged, all natural Angus beef, line caught wild fish, natural pork and chicken. Simply prepared and elegantly presented, the dishes offered by Chef Kathleen have been compared to the some of the finest restaurants in San Francisco and Chicago. The intimate dining room, warmed by a wood stove in the corner and the laughter of happy diners, welcomes you with the aromas of freshly baked bread and pies. If you want to escape the hurried crowds of Bigfork in high summer, jump in the car and drive the 16 miles to laid back Swan Lake. Enjoy a walk on the beach before sunset and then settle in to enjoy an evening of excellent food, good wine and the conversation of new friends. Reservations required. Call 406-886-2080. The dining room is open for dinner Wednesday – Sunday, 5pm to 9pm and Saturday and Sunday, 8am – 2pm for brunch.
