Incredible Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a phenomenal property, and Pat is a wonderful host! The view from the deck is just terrific, with easy access to the lake, and the lake house itself is in great shape. We arrived to find everything spotless, and before I could get the suitcases in the house, the kids had found, and jumped into, Flathead Lake! This is an ideal property and I often find myself thinking about coffee in the mornings on the deck overlooking the lake. We definitely will be back!

Repeat Customers!!

This was our 3rd trip to Pat's - we simply love it here! Pat is a wonderful host and her home is fantastic! We love everything about this place! The views do not get old and they change by the hour. Our kids love to count deer on the drive to the home and sometimes we lose track. We really do think this is an idea spot in the area - it's private and so well positioned with the east facing views. We enjoyed playing in the lake - a great way to stay refreshed in the summer heat.

Whether a quiet get-a-way or base camp for exploring the Flathead Lake/Glacier region, we're completely happy here!

Skidoo Bay Property

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place!! Both, the spectacular house and majestic setting on Flathead Lake. There is beach access for swimming. The water is beautiful. The view of the lake and mountains was fabulous to sip coffee on the deck each morning. The house is comfortable and well stocked with plenty of sheets, pillows and towels. The kitchen was fun to prep meals. We found everything that we needed and even more. We had a delightful week!

Rejuvenation at Flathead lakeside home

  • 5 of 5

Hi Pat and Steve: Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed staying at your beautiful home on Flathead Lake. The pictures cannot do it justice - we loved the peaceful lakeside setting and magnificent scenery all around, gorgeous sunsets and moonlit nights. We found the facility spotless and so fully furnished that every need was met, including lots of maps and recreation materials in a corner.

We spent a lot of time on the deck, talking and reading, and did a bit of local sight seeing. On one day we drove up to Glacier NP up to Logan Pass and a nice luncheon at a lodge..My brother and sister in law had never been there so it, too, was special.

And you provided all the driving directions, operational information, and recreational opportunities one could ever need. We managed to consume huckleberry shakes and a pie.... We feel refreshed and are delighted by our holiday at the lake!!!

We just spent a week in this little slice of heaven. It was a wonderful, relaxing get-away. The house is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need. The deck is gorgeous - as are the views. The beach area was perfect and we swam every day in the lake. We ate every meal on the beautiful new deck overlooking the lake. It is peaceful and serene and comfortable.

We enjoyed a day trip to Glacier National Park, fly fishing with a guide from Big Fork, whitewater rafting out of Polson, and jet skiing. Everything was easily accessible and worthwhile. Our two teenage daughters enjoyed it all and I got to read, read, read. A perfect vacation.

We highly recommend this property and hope to return.

Aahhh! Refresh with 180º views of Flathead Lake - serene location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at this beautiful Skidoo Bay cabin/house. First, the home is immaculate and all details were thought of for our stay. We received great communication and directions from the hosts before we arrived. Finley Point is a beautiful, forested peninsula into Flathead Lake. This home is extremely private and it feels like its just you, the lake, and the deer. Each morning and evening we spent time on the deck watching the scenery change around us. Brilliant sunrises and long lasting sunsets /twilight. We enjoyed sunset campfires and s'mores on the private beach.

When not at the house, we explored the area and there is more than enough to see in a week! We saw bear, bison, pronghorn deer, elk and more at the National Bison Range to the south. Great shopping and dining in Big Fork (cherries along the east side of the lake in mid/late July). We rented a power boat one day and spent the day on the water and loved exploring Wild Horse Island. 4th of July Parade in Kalispell. Whitefish has a fun railroad museum, arts fair and great shopping/eating (resort town). From Whitefish it's a quick drive up to Big Mountain. There is a lot to do in the summer on the mountain - we enjoyed riding the free chair lift while watching people zip down the alpine slide or play in the tree zip lines. And, do not forget Glacier National Park! Wow! We enjoyed a perfect day in the park with blue skies and a fun hike in the snow at Logan Pass.

We returned to Seattle very refreshed and in awe of the beauty in Western Montana. It was nice to slow down in this area. Pat and Steve were great to work with - quick to answer our questions and we hope to be back!!
