We came to Marina Cay for a family reunion. We had 40 people attend from the West coast to the East Coast. The staff was great. We spent a lot of time around the pool/Tiki bar area and it was a great time to sit with our family to catch up. I would come back to the area because of... More

Hotel has all of the needs for a vacationer. Resort is located right at the mouth of Flathead Lake. Beautiful place to stay and enjoy Bigfork Montana. Everything is so easy to walk to. Cannot go wrong staying here.

After reading other reviews, I guess we were one of the lucky ones. We stayed 5 nights and would definitely go back. We stayed in #152 in the Waterfront building. The beds were comfortable, they had movies to watch, a book exchange and the location was great. We were sitting right on the water. Every morning we would take our... More

I rated this very good due to the great service provided by all resort employees we interacted with during our stay. The cost to stay leads you to believe you are staying in a plush resort and will have pampered bedding, bath, etc. but I was disappointed. I wouldn't go back unless we were given a discounted rate, which we... More

I stayed at Marina Cay for 5 nights early this month. We rented a 2-bedroom suite in Hill East. The room itself was beautiful and quite comfortable, expect for the bed which appeared to be taken from a dormitory. My major gripe was that only 2 very, very thin hard pillows were provided. The "fully-stocked" kitchen had many pots and... More

I staying two nights. Upon arrival for check-in I was booked into a room with one bed after I had reserved a room with two queen beds. Not such a big deal and could obviously forgive that the desk clerk had made an honest mistake. The room with the one queen bed was beautiful and I almost wished I could... More

This is the second time my wife and I stayed at Marina Cay and if I have a chance to go to Big Fork again I am sure we will stay here again. The service is very good and the rooms are always immaculate. Last time we stayed here we stayed on the ground floor of the waterfront building and... More

We stayed only one night and have done so for years. The grandkids loved the paddle boards, and we all loved the view. The price was right for this time of year. This area is very expensive and our courtyard room was so affordable and met all of our needs. The hot tub was near our room, flowers everywhere, and... More

We stayed here only one night, but would have liked to have stayed longer. We had a huge room with a king bed, full kitchen, cow hide rug, and furnished patio overlooking the water. The room was very clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. There was a pool and hot tub. Boats, canoes, paddle boats... More

Met old friends for reunion. Signed up last, so had to splurge on large 2 bd room condo. Very new and nicely appointed. View of flathead lake Unit #19-perfect! Nice granite countertops, nice appliances, fireplace, living room, dining area, guest powder grill and washer/dryer! Town of big fork is lovely but don't miss...the short drive to Glacier National Park! Awesome!... More
