I had a wonderful stay at the Sleeping Bear Lodge in September of 2009. A lovely and very comfortable hotel in a fantastic location in Bigfork. The views of the lake from the very large and well-appointed room were spectacular.

We stayed at the Sleeping Bear Lodge in August of 2007. As my title indicates I have mixed feelings about this property. Much of what is says on the website is true...It was located within walking distance of dining and shopping...it was clean and the room was well decorated...the breakfast was simple but adequate. If I were staying at a... More

Housekeeper was continuosly talked down to and talked bad about even though the housekeeper seemed to be the only one working. Owner needs to respect her employees and is in great need of psychological help. Every... More

Chercody, owner at The Sleeping Bear Lodge, responded to this review

The reviewer stated that they stayed at our lodge in May of 2006 and they wrote their review in April of 2007. I think they must have confused us with another inn. We were closed for renovations from October 2005 until June 9, 2006 and therefore had no guests in May 2006. We value our employees and without them we... More

Beautiful lodge, fantastic service, great location overlooking the bay and Flathead Lake. The Sleeping Bear is just what I had hoped a Montana lodge to be. I was traveling alone on a business trip and selected this lodge after reading other reviews on TripAdvisor. It's all true. Cheryl, the owner, is incredibly accommodating and makes you feel like an honored... More

What a wonderful place! The rooms were beautifully decorated, well maintained, and interesting. A nice breakfast was provided. The location of the lodge is ideal: it is right in the center of Big Fork (a great town!) and walking distance to shopping, the lake, restaurants, etc. The staff was wonderful, very knowledgeable and very helpful.......I highly recommend this place and...

Absolutely adorable lodge - every room is fabulously decorated in a theme; cowboy, cowgirls, fishing theme, indian, etc. We stayed in the Indian Spirit room which was a very large room, with a large well-appointed bathroom, lots of windows looking out at beautiful mountains, the river, as well as the lake. The owner was delightful, and always had coffee, delicious... More

Great place completely redone by new owner with western style theme rooms throughout. Rooms are large some with beautiful views of Flathead Lake. Short walk into downtown Bigfork and all it has to offer. Especially nice is the common room with fireplace and comfortable chairs for just relaxing. Large deck with views of the Lake for your early morning coffee... More

She advised us on day trips and also suggested some wonderful restaurants. We stayed in the "The Lucky Lady Saloon", a bourdelou style room, the room and view... More
