We've stayed at a huge variety of places up near Flathead Lake, Whitefish, and Glacier National Park, always looking for a new place to train (Stand Up Paddleboard) or give classes. Woods Bay was a place that always appealed to us, but hadn't stayed, so when we decided to take a 2 day paddle trip, I looked into staying there.... More

We arrived and found that the hotel is across from a very busy busy road and the access for the beach that is supposed to be for the hotel guests are crowded by all of the restaurant and bar clients. Its not a lot of water front at all, super crowded! Lots of live music and noise from the bar... More

If you are on your way to Glacier and need to make a stop to rest, this is a great option. It is not cheap, but it is charming. All the rooms are named after islands. They are sweet, ruthlessly clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The view of Flathead lake is awesome.... More

I felt a little cheated. Maybe I just read everything wrong. But I thought we overlooked the lake...even though it was across the road. Nope. Can't see the lake from our room. The hotel is perpendicular to the lake...so no view. I had envisioned sitting on an adirondack chair, sipping wine, reading a book, and watching the waves lap the... More

My two small children (3yrs and 8months), my wife, and I spent a night at this Inn while traveling around Montana on our way South from Canada to Laramie Wyoming. Found it on-line and booked based on very affordable price, nice pictures, and pretty location right on the water. We arrived later than we had hoped (8:40 pm) and the... More

We stayed at the Islander during a recent trip to Bigfork. It was awesome! All of the rooms have an island theme--we had the Jamaica room. The decor was great, and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud! We didn't spend much time in the room; we spent most of our time sitting out on the lawn in the... More

Well that's what I told him. And it was true, but it was a short trip. We had a great stay for the weekend. We soaked in the jetted Jacuzzi tub, listened to music and slept in a comfy king sized bed. This room was spacious and clean. Modern and loved the theme. Bring your slippers though the laminate floor... More

We stayed in the Wild Horse room and enjoyed in. The Inn is older on the outside but one the inside all the rooms have been updated in recent years. Very clean and comfortable. These rooms are themed but nicely done, not over the top. The woman who greeted us and check us is seemed as though she didn't want... More

Really cute Island themed rooms. They are super clean with fresh paint and decor. Very comfortable beds. It looks like they really fixed up older cabins to make them retro chic. We sat out in the yard in brightly painted Adirondack chairs. We opted to stay a second night and staff really hustled so that could happen. They are connected... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Islander Inn is a tasteful collection of guestrooms and bungalows situated just a stone-throw away from Flathead Lake. The Islander is where you can put a little distance between yourself and the rest of the world. We have a pure island lifestyle with an assortment of 8 different themed suites and bungalows. Whether you gravitate toward a Hawaiian, "Maui" style, or if you're more of a Montanan "Wild Horse Island" type of person, we offer you a unique window into a tasteful and original environment. We are also "Dog Friendly," with well behaved humans. ... more   less
