"My family just enjoyed the most wonderful vacation with the gorgeous Bella Vista as our home base. We quite literally voted and it was 11 votes for it being our favorite vacation spot to date (0 votes against!). Our group was 6 adults and 5 boys 10 and under. The house afforded us everything one could ask for. We especially loved being able to gather as a large group when desired and having the option of sitting in one of the many comfortable areas spread around the property for quieter activities. We enjoyed the quick trip to the lake in Lakeside. It was the perfect beach for the kids. We wound up going every morning we were there. We also loved the close proximity to Glacier National Park. It was less than a hour drive making it easy for us to visit the park several times during the week. The home owners, Robin and Patti Graham couldn't have been better hosts. They were extremely responsive, gracious and welcoming. We very much hope to be able to return to Bella Vista in the years to come!"

"This is the fourth year we have stayed at this location on Flathead Lake. Each year we enjoy it more than the year before. We have stayed at other properties on the lake and keep coming back here because of the location, the amazing home and all that goes with it. This is a special home in a great location that provides access to everything the area has to offer, by car or boat.
This year our children and grandchildren were able to go with us again. The way the bedrooms and bathrooms are located and set up in the house, there is plenty of room for everyone and separation for the kids at bedtime if you need that. There is also a huge playroom/TV room on the second level, with lots of fun toys for the kids to play with. And the third floor "Crow's Nest" is an amazing bedroom and provides a view that is truly exceptional.
The deck, yard, BBQ, swimming area, dock, hot tub, kayaks and water toys will provide everything you need to enjoy a beautiful summer day outside on the lake. I can't think of anything Robin and Patti have overlooked."

"It was everything it was promoted to be. The Owners are very considerate. At age 63, we had no problems with access in neither the cottage nor lake. The commute to Glacier National Park takes nearly an hour; but, it is a pleasant drive. There is much to do and see in the area.
The cottage could use minor updating (flooring); but, everything was clean and very well maintained. The Jelisons CARE for this cottage and their tenants. I would definitely seek to rent this cottage again."

"we had a mini-family reunion at this FABULOUS house in Montana and I cant speak highly enough about it. House is impeccable. The view is outstanding, overlooking the lake with the mountains in the background. All amenities are included, we didn't even have to get toilet paper. Well-stocked kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. The hot tub was wonderfully relaxing after a day of hiking or white-water rafting. Most nights we all sat on the deck just looking up at meteors and thousands of stars.
Only drawback is the last few miles of road to get to the house, up a steep gravel incline but the view and location are worth it.We had a van that did just fine.
Jane was the perfect hostess, answered any questions, gave great directions and hints as to where to go for fun.
We liked it so much we want to move to Montana!"
