Flathead lake Lodge is really a magical place. The owners and staff all so friendly and helpful. Riding the horses on the trails was awesome. They are also very accomadating for very picky eaters. There were like 120 guests and at the end of the week you felt like you were family with everyone. Saddlesore saloon was a great place... More

Located in beautiful NW Montana, Flathead Lake Lodge is wonderful place to get away from city life and enjoy a week with the family riding horses, hiking, biking, swimming, canoeing, waterskiing, rafting, and making great memories. We took our kids here 35 years ago, and this time took them with their families, and got to see all of the activities... More

When my daughter was a little girl, we visited the Ranch, and had one of the most memorable vacations of our lives. Now a married woman, we returned to make new memories together. July 4th week included a parade down Bigfork's main Street and spectacular fireworks. There is a myriad of activities for the kids; a rodeo , kayaking, water... More

I just got back from a fantastic vacation at a dude ranch! It was so much more, I find it hard to put it all in one review. Picture this: The excitement of being transported back in time not only by the surroundings (pristine setting, phenomenal views, fresh, homecooked meals, dogs running freely... children laughing) but also by feeling so...

What an amazing experience we had! My husband and I, got married on the property, over Memorial Day weekend (2016). It was absolutely magical!!! I can't begin to tell you how incredible the entire staff was to us and our guests. We ended renting out almost the entire resort, except for a family celebrating their parents 29th wedding anniversary and... More

We spent Memorial Day weekend at this working dude ranch in order to attend a wedding. We stayed in a cute 1BR cabin that, while not luxurious, met our needs except for the lighting, which was too dim to apply makeup. (However if we hadn't been there for a wedding, I would have happily foregone the makeup.) Prices include all... More

First time visiting Montana in my life and I most likely will come back! I was here for the Spartan race. Little did I know that ever since Spartan started racing here, it's big news around here with welcome signs on the freeway, airlines, local mom & pops welcome us with open arms. This lodge is no different and so... More

Had a perfect vacation at the ranch. The trail rides, the boating excursions on the lake were all beyond expectations. The cabin was a great size, and loved the manicured lawns and campfires! Feels like home but so far from home at the same time. The food was just OK, that's the only negative I can think of. The views... More

If I had one word to describe Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge (FLL), I could not find one more appropriate than, “Awesome!” From beginning to end, I had the best experience. Forgive me ahead of time, as this might be a little long, not sure if there is enough space to share the truly wonderful experience I had. This was my... More
