We recently spent a week at averills. The food is very good, the people are super nice. However the location is basically right in the town of big fork and feels more like a city park than a Montana wilderness experience. The trail rides are lackluster and you have to cross a major road to get to the trails. The... More

Flathead Lake Lodge is the perfect place for an exciting, yet relaxing family vacation. We just had our whole "gang" gather there for a week…grandparents, kids, and grandchildren... ages were 4 to 70 with several teenagers. Without exception, everyone said it was their "best vacation." From the horses and trail rides, the kids rodeo, the water sports on the lake,... More

Our family just returned from the most wonderful stay at Flathead Lake Lodge. This place is nothing short of perfection. The staff and owner made us feel like family, which set such a nice tone for the week. There is so much to do for children and adults of all ages; we loved being able to let our children run... More

Although rated as a family place, this is a great place for couples as well. These guys have figured out how to perfectly separate your children from you in a safe and fun environment. It truly lets kids have freedom and affords the adults time to relax and enjoy....we loved it as a family and a couple and will be... More

I first came to the Lodge as a child and have since returned with my own children. If you want to make lasting family memories, this is the place! I have never vacationed anywhere that has made such a impact on my life. The owners and staff at Flathead are top notch. The food accommodation and amenities can't be beat.... More

This is a great family vacation but the accommodations left a little to be desired. There were a ton of activities for both kids and adults and the food was amazing. However I had a hard time spending the money we did to stay in a cabin with no air conditioning (it was over 90 degrees during the day and... More

Were there for a wedding the last weekend in September. The prior weekend, it was in the 80's. The weather when we were there, a little less cooperative. But, at least the rain held off! It was even gloomier the next day when we drove up to Glacier Park. Could not get through road as it was closed due to... More

enjoyed a lunch buffet and great opportunities for photography at this historic montana ranch. Very peaceful with a wide variety of things to do. All the staff were willing to bend over backwards to assist in making any request happen. Very beautiful cabins and main lodge.

Averill's Flathead Lake Lodge is the place to be! My family has been going there for 8 years now, and every year we have new, fun experiences. It's great for the adults, because not only is it a beautiful location, but there are so many activities to keep them active and having fun. Teenagers also always have a great time... More

My family has been coming to the ranch for many years and can't imagine a summer without this little slice of heaven. The Averill family and the whole staff have become friends and always make our stay wonderful. Whatever you want to do while you're here you will be accommodated. The food is superb and the service second to none.
