The entry drive was a bit steep, but once I got inside to check in it was all worth it! The desk staff was very friendly and did their best to answer all the "tourist" questions I had. It was a family trip, so we had our 3 children with us. Their first stop after we opened our room was... More

Booked a room here at the last minute and was pretty satisfied. Prices in Big Fork in the summer are high as was the cost of this room. The steep drive may be hard if you are pulling a trailer. The rooms are dated the bed had a memory foam top so was a bit hot and squishy. The air... More

We stayed here for a few nights while in Bigfork. The rates here are lower than anywhere else in Bigfork so if you don't want to pay $200+ a night then stay here. It was totally fine- but not exceptional or rave-worthy. The rooms are large but dated. We enjoyed the convenient location to downtown Bigfork. We had an issue... More

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed our convenient location, but very sorry you experienced an issue with your room key and weren't able to get help. Once the office closes at 10:30pm, our automated system is meant to get you directly to our onsite manager in an emergency. I have spoken with her and she assures... More

Desk staff was extremely helpful and guests were pleasant ! The room is comfortable and well equipped. Price was great for the area. Concerns were the top mattress didn't stay on the bed very well and when taking a shower the water turned hot and cold several times. We did enjoy sitting outside ( we had our own chairs) .... More

Thank you for your review and for raising a few points. We have been adding memory foam mattress toppers to our beds, and so far the feedback has been very good. This is the first we have heard about them shifting, so we will look into clips or other ways to hold them in place. We do have stairs for... More

Had a family reunion in Big Fork. This property was perfect. Good Value, Clean, large rooms and staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Great Staff. Perfect location and access in the Flathead Valley.

Good location, close to downtown Bigfork and the lake, very personable and helpful owners, good sized room, very clean, great setting, nice little pool. Nothing negative except I wished the lobby coffee was stronger! We'll definitely be back.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate that you touched on so many wonderful points about our motel and staff. We'll take a look at the coffee and see if we need a bigger coffee scoop to make it stronger. Thanks again and please consider us the next time you pass this way. More

We enjoyed our stay..we stayed a week. The beds were comfortable, the room was spacious for our family of four. The fridge, microwave, and coffee maker were very convenient. If you are looking for a big breakfast it's not here..but all in all it was a great stay.

Being the tourist season I had to go to Big Fork MT for business, the hotels in Kalispell were $250 a night and a 30 mile drive. Most of the Motels/Hotels and Lodges around Big-Fork were at least $220 a night and way up, then I found The Timbers. For about $160 a night (seems high but it is great... More

My wife and my brother and sister-in-law have been coming to The Timbers and Bigfork for the same weekend for nearly 27 years. We have seen it in its 'boom' times and in its 'bust' times. I am happy to report that the new owners, after a year with a steep learning curve are bringing The Timbers back. The rooms... More

Thank you for your review and for your continued business every year. I am glad to hear that you have noticed the changes. Our location managers, Jenni and Brian, work very hard to keep the grounds immaculate, while serving each and every guest with a smile.

We stayed one night after a week of camping in Glacier. Our room was spacious and very clean. It included a refrigerator and microwave. The free Wi-Fi worked well. The staff members we dealt with were all extremely gracious and hospitable. When we had to check out late, both the housekeeper and the front desk person were totally accommodating. The... More
