Flathead Lake House

  • 5 of 5

As my Granddaughter would say " This was the best vacation EVER!". I was skeptical when I read the other reviews for this house, but the house really is perfect. At the end of the week we tried to think of something that was missing or could be improved. There was nothing on the list. We have used VRBO several times before. Every house was very good. This really was the best. I had no expectation of our visit to Montana. However one week was not enough. We came to see Glacier Park which is spectacular but there was so much more to do and see. Even though our visit to Glacier Park was fantastic, everyone just wanted to stay at the house because it was so great. Just to sit on the deck with the fireplace overlooking the lake was great.

This house and owner (Kari) are AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for nine of us traveling from San Diego for the Montana Spartan Race. There was plenty of room, beds, linens and areas to hang out. The place was clean and well stocked with blankets, towels, laundry detergent and if I forgot something random (like syrup), the owner, Kari, was able to bring it over. Kari fulfilled any/all requests we had and she even made us homemade cinnamon rolls. The lake view was really peaceful and we had two outside hangout spots: during the day we usually hung out on the patio with the gas fire pit going and then at night, we had a fire down near the dock and there were plenty of chairs/seats for all of us to relax.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this spot. The house was very clean, well-stocked, roomy and comfortable. Kari and Bill were very helpful and made sure we had a great vacation. The view is fantastic, too. The best part of this property is it is just steps away from the lake and they have a great boat dock. How nice to walk out the door and get on the boat and take off!! Each night we enjoyed a wonderful fire down by the lake to top off our relaxing day on the lake. There is even a little spot where our 2 1/2 yr. old grandson could play in the water a bit. He absolutely loved everything about being there, so did his grandparents, parents and baby brother. We lucked out with the weather in September - it was totally beautiful - couldn't have planned a better vacation! We will definitely try to get back there again!!We didn't leave the property much, but it is close to restaurants and shopping and is really one of the best locations on Flathead Lake.

Super Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over the week of 4th of July with our family (including small children) and had an absolute blast. The location is excellent and the house/property are immaculate. We brought our ski boat and loved having it in the water at the private dock for the week.

The owners are really fantastic people. They were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay.

The fireworks show in Lakeside (and just outside the cabin) were great. We took the boat out at night and had an amazing experience watching the fireworks from the water.

Do not hesitate to rent this property. It is clean, family-friendly and the location can't be beat. I have a feeling we'll be back!!

Best of the Best

  • 5 of 5

WOW, what a great spot for a vacation! Pictures just don’t do it justice. No camera can capture the magic of the water, mountains and that Montana sky. It is a superbly equipped house on a postcard beautiful lake in the Big Sky Country of Montana. Not only did we have everything in the house we needed, Kari was just amazing. Get some of her recipes if you can. (stores are close too, so you can try them out). We played on the lake (great dock & boat slip), water trampoline was very cool – kids just loved it - even the big ones. BBQ’s, bonfires, starry nights .….we just didn’t want to leave. We will come back and thanks for a great vacation.
