I recently stayed there for four days for a seminar/workshop and had a wonderful time! Our room, 14B, in our cabin was comfortable, warm, and well-decorated (also equipped with hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner infused with essential oils, and glycerin soap). The staff are all very friendly and great hosts. We went trail-riding (they take very good care of their animals),...

My daughter, grandkids and I had the most rewarding, fun time at Flathead Lake Lodge. The Western hospitality received from the staff exceeded my expectations. There were activities for toddlers to seniors like me! The scenery was spectacular and the log cabin accommodations were super! Don't miss this great spot!😀

... an awesome family vacation! In our family, we have some experienced equestrians. And then there's me. I can look good sitting on a horse while it walks me through the woods (with breakfast or a beer as the reward), but I don't live to ride. On the other hand, I love to sail and welcome family members who can...

We had such a great trip! It was our first time and we will return. Everyone from the guests to the staff were so fun, open and accommodating. Truly- words cannot express the beauty and warmth of this place! Kids are 9 and 10 and are begging to return. Our son loved the "freedom" of roaming with the other boys...

This place is lovely. We stayed in a lodge room in the South Lodge... it was built in 1932; I believe the main lodge is older, so expect small, rustic, basic accommodations- but then forget about it because all you will do in such a room is brush your teeth, shower and fall into a very comfortable bed. In the...

We stayed four days first for a meeting and then for a couple of days on our own. We really enjoyed the lodge, the food was plentiful and delicious. Every staff member was courteous and helpful. The rooms were well appointed and we were supplied with a small refrigerator. We had a lot of rain and umbrellas were plentiful. We...

Located in beautiful NW Montana, Flathead Lake Lodge is wonderful place to get away from city life and enjoy a week with the family riding horses, hiking, biking, swimming, canoeing, waterskiing, rafting, and making great memories. We took our kids here 35 years ago, and this time took them with their families, and got to see all of the activities...

I just got back from a fantastic vacation at a dude ranch! It was so much more, I find it hard to put it all in one review. Picture this: The excitement of being transported back in time not only by the surroundings (pristine setting, phenomenal views, fresh, homecooked meals, dogs running freely... children laughing) but also by feeling so...
