Definitely not worth the price. Beds were hard, small kitchen/ sitting area was nice. Only had a shower in the room, that came w 2 spiders. Had to walk to pool area downhill then trek uphill after swimming unless you drove your car down to the pool. The tiki bar had friendly staff, food was great.

The location in Big Fork is the best. You can walk to everywhere. But I feel they take advantage of this and charge a premium for outdated units. Our beds are so old, saggy and uncomfortable. They left me in terrible back pain and ruined my trip. I would ask for a unit that has been updated or you will... More

Rebekah_MarinaCay, Manager at Marina Cay Resort and Conference Center, responded to this review

The Marina Cay property is very unique as every unit is privately owned. This leads to drastic variations in room style and decor. That being said, a saggy mattress is not acceptable! Please contact me at the front desk so I may determine which room you were in. I can then encourage the owner to purchase a new mattress. We... More

If you book make sure it's a room on the water. Our room was far from water with a boring view and was loud. We had a studio. Very bare minimum provided. I thoght was on Lake and is on small Bay. The restaurant was good and the people were nice. Just expected more than what we got for price.... More

I hadn't ben to Big Fork in years. It was a thrill to get to spend a night at the Marina Cay Resort. This is a great property with a wonderful view of the lake. It's also a short walk to downtown and all the activity of Big Fork. This was a great trip and I can't wait to return... More

A beautiful location, nicely furnished, and really enjoyed grounds. The condo was waterfront, and nicely furnished. Upon a casual remark that I noticed the fully otherwise stocked kitchen had no silverware or plates, both owners were very caring, responsive and concerned.

We stayed in one of the Ridge Condos for three nights in mid May. We loved the one bedroom, living room dining room and two bath condo. It was perfect for us. We had a view of Flathead Lake that was lovely, although we would take a few trees down. The condo is quite new and has state of the... More

I'm a Kalispell resident who wanted a Christmas getaway to propose to my girlfriend on Christmas Eve. I called Marina Cay's office after coming up short in my quest to find a good vacation rental cabin in the Flathead that didn't require a 7 night minimum stay. Marina Cay only required a 2 night minimum and had many great options,... More

We were celebrating our Anniversary and noted Marina Cay had 'off season' rates. We wanted a ground floor room by river and the young woman at the Front Desk was more than helpful, kind, and friendly, to us. When we said it was our Anniversary, she said she had a Studio w/ kitchenette, King-size bed, and patio on ground floor... More

We stayed in a Studio Suite with a King sized bed. Was clean and comfy cozy and we had the lake view which was awesome!! Did have trouble with the shower as I had to call and ask how to get the water to come out if the shower head (had to pull down on the bottom of the faucet).... More
