I spent a week at the Flathead Lake Lodge with my son this past August. We had a great time. There are loads of fun activities to choose from. We rode horses, we cycled with a guide to a gorgeous lake, my son took wake boarding lessons on another gorgeous lake, we went white water rafting, we went hiking with a guide, my son played laser tag, we went to a rodeo, I had a massage. We also just hung out at the lodge and swam in the pool or the lake. My son, who is 12, met friends right away and had a group to eat lunch and dinner with. On our own, we arranged a tour of National Glacier Park, which is definitely worth doing. The kids eat a bit earlier than the adults. The food for them is very kid friendly, the food for the adults is more gourmet. We stayed in a small, though quite comfortable two bedroom cabin. No complaints.
