Joe and Marcia have created or more appropriately preserved an amazing place for anyone to love and hate to leave...As comfortable as an old shoe, but feels as luxurious as ever. Blue ribbon treatment of every guest makes anyone feel like family. People on the staff like Erik the chef, and Trea and Shelby are all talented and friendly, and one can discuss the world view, or the valley view. A true wilderness experience as this place is surrounded by protected and wild land.
Trea is a gifted teacher and angler and his patience will allow any level to excell with a fly rod. Shelby has that special touch with horses (and people). Erik loves to discuss his amazing recipes, and if you meet him walking along the lake join him for a warm conversation. Your humble proprietors Joe and Marcia will not tell you of their world travels and rich experiences unless you ask.
The sometimes slight morning fog over the lake, crystal waters with groups of large Cutthroat trout, crisp air and dense native vegatation all speak to a place that has been handled gently to retain its pristine character. Raise a pair of the resident Leica binoculars sitting on the shelf in the guest area to check the progress of the eagle nest across the lake.
Our stay was a unique outdoor experience with the comforts of home. My wife and I cannot say enough about the quality of Flat Creek Ranch. No surprises except how accurate all of the Trip Advisor glowing reviews are. I will add images of a couple of paintings done from our stay and my memory of Flat Creek Lake which will linger for some time. Thanks- Kim & Janice
