Living in Houston, it's hard to take a breather and remove yourself from everyday life anywhere locally. My wife and I made the trip to Northwest Montana and enjoyed four incredible nights at the Flathead Lake Lodge. We had seen many positive reviews about the lodge and knew that it would give us a good chance to unwind and unplug... More

We went the week of the 4th of July. The same group of families has been going for 30 years. It's a great time for them and their group. They are 90% of the guests that week. If you want to walk into the dining room each meal to 90% of the chairs tipped and reserved and be treated like... More

Always enjoy our time at FLL. This was our 5th year, and the staff was as friendly as ever. Food is superb, and served family style. Plenty of things to do at the lodge, and Glacier NP is an easy drive. Only issue is the comfort of some of the beds. Overall, a great experience!

The views from this lodge are unlike any other place we have stayed. Flathead Lake with the mountains as a back drop provides spectacular sunrises and sunsets. It is very peaceful here and a great place to get away from the hussle of everyday life.

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...

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
