Make your vacation or business travel comfortable and memorable. Our Bed & Breakfast Inn is a refreshing alternative to an ordinary hotel or motel. You are 'at home' in uniquely appointed suites, relaxing in the spacious living room, or soaking in the outdoor hot tub. Full gourmet breakfasts are served elegantly in the dining room. The Knoll Family invites you to share their home and grounds as well as the friendly 'beasts' and array of fascinating birds. The O'Duachain is a gracious three level authentic log home and two story guest house, set on five beautiful acres between Flathead Lake and Swan Lake, 5 miles from the village of Bigfork, Montana. The stone fireplaces dominate the living room of the Main House and provide cozy warmth and luxurious solitude for local Montanans, national and international guests. Grounds feature a pond, wild flowers, exotic birds, wild game, water fowl and pristine landscape. The charming Inn, with its artifacts and artistry, provides a 'lodge' atmosphere. A large wrap around deck furnished with locally made willow chairs, love seats and rockers enhances the spectacular views. Conversation and relaxation compliment the peaceful, yet wild beauty surrounding The O'Duachain. The dining area glows in the morning light, where gourmet breakfasts are served. The outdoor hot tub adjoins the Main House where guests can relax after a day exploring the surrounding country side, enjoying the links at Eagle Bend Golf & Yachting Club, or enjoying the multitude of local art galleries, unique shops and fantastic restaurants.
The O'Duachain offers rooms with private baths, and a two bedroom suite (wheel chair accessible). The Guest House also has balconies and patios with incredible views. Guests enjoy easy access to golf and tennis, boating, fishing, sailing, swimming, hiking, climbing, biking, tubing, rafting, touring, exploring, and riding. From The O'Duachain as your 'base' you can visit Glacier National Park, Flathead Lake, National Bison Range, historic St. Ignatius Jesuit Mission, Bob Marshall Wilderness, Blacktail Ski resort, Swan Lake, Big Mountain Ski Resort, Jewel Basin Hiking Area, Wild Horse Island, Elk Glen Farm, and Native American historical sites. Winter lends a glorious blanket for Alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, snow shoeing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, sleigh rides, hay rides, ice skating, sledding/tobogganing or just plain old peace and quiet. Bill Knoll and Mary Corcoran Knoll are the owners and inn-keepers of The O'Duachain Country Inn. Established in 1985 as Flathead Valley's first bed and breakfast inn, the Knolls maintain the standard of excellence and fine reputation established by its founders.
