The Marina Cay team is second to none. They were friendly, hospitable and professional. The accommodations were perfect and Bigfork Montana is exquisite. I simply cannot wait to return. Four nights are not long enough! Thank you Trish for helping us extend to that fourth night! Thank you Amy.....for everything!

The resort was lovely with a pool and restaurants on site. The staff was so accommodating and the room on the River I reserved was very clean and western modern. Easy walk in to Big Fork. My only criticism would be I could hear footsteps from upstairs and some voices from next door. I would recommend the hotel.

One of our servers noticed us playing cribbage on our mini cribbage board. She went behind the bar and got us a full size board. It didn't help me a bit, my girlfriend still won.... More

We spent the week here through RCI points. We checked in on Saturday for a week. Our room was not ready when we checked in however we were an hour early. The staff though told us we could change and head to the pool. Our girls were excited by this! We spent a couple hours at the pool everyday. We... More

Went to enjoy afternoon on the Lake. We were amazed at the level of indifference and incompetence of the young folk they hire to staff the Marina and the Tiki bar The staff at the Marina literally took a half hour to get us into the boat we had pre reserved...mind you, we had paid for the wasted half hour...

I will alert the owner of that company of your review. Regarding our staff at the Resort, we have a policy of greeting every guest immediately when the arrive. I am... More

My wife and I stayed at Marina Cay from August 6 thru August 10, 2015. We actually rented a one bedroom, one bath condo. Marina Cay has all of the amenities we would want including a restaurant, Tiki Bar and pool. It is a beautiful setting at a marina which serves the beautiful Flathead Lake. What stood out the most...

Spent 3 nights at this place and wished we could have spent 3 months! Had a gorgeous 3rd floor condo overlooking the lake -- amazing view, amazing place. Enjoyed the service even more than the view. Great little bar, excellent food, wonderful omelettes in the morning, good drinks at night and a real Montana welcoming atmosphere. We water-skied, did paddle... More

The rooms were well furnished, good sized, very clean, and a beautiful view from the room. The staff was incredibly friendly and very polite. There were various activities to enjoy and good food to eat. I would recommend this place to every person going to Montana in the Kalispell, Whitefish, Bigfork area.

I am stuck at the airport with no ride and nowhere to go, with my flight being delayed through the night, I catch a break and the owner of the Marina Cay pulls up to pick up some of her friends, with her not knowing who I am and with me not knowing who she is, she sees that I... More

Thank you for your review. We love that we were able to help you that night as Glacier International Airport actually closes at night. What a happy coincident that the owner's friend's flight had been cancelled and you were able to room with them. Happy travels and good luck on your next adventure. More

I've been to the Marina Cay three times this year and have loved it every time. The staff is so nice they make you feel like family not just another guest. It is a very nice pace to stay right next to the lake. They have all the rentals also like anything from boats and jet skis to paddle boards... More
