The Lake House accommodated our family reunion of 17 with lots of space and incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

I've always wanted to spend time on Flathead Lake. The Lake House has a great location, right on the lake. Great for boating, swimming, and enjoying the view from the deck with my extended family.

The house is in great shape and Dave is a great host, very responsive.

Beautiful House was Great for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful and large enough for our family reunion of 11 adults and 11 kids. The house is very nice and roomy and we never felt cramped. The view is absolutly amazing and the kids had a great time swimming and playing in the water. The house was well stocked and the kitchen was great for fixing meals for everyone. It is also close enough to Glacier that you could make a few day trips to the park. Everyone in my family was impressed with the house and the wonderful view. If we ever have another reunion in the area we would definintely pick this house again.

We just spent a week on Flathead Lake and the home was fantastic! It sits right on the lake with boat access. The home itself was amazing and big enough for 20 people to sleep with enough space for everyone! The owner and housekeeper were more than cordial making our entire experience perfect!! I would recommend anyone to go here!

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

Property is stunning. Lake access is amazing and steps from the house. The upper deck, right off the kitchen and family room and provides for a beautiful sunset. Owners are very accommodating and keep the property in top shape. Everything was clean, working and did not have any issues. Car ride into Polson is 10 min to stores, boat rentals, etc... trip on boat into Polson is 20 min. Almost regret leaving a good review of the house as I'd like to keep it all to myself!!! HAHA. Thanks David for a great week!!!

Perfect family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family has vacationed on Flathead Lake since I was a small child, visiting my grandparents at their lakefront home near Polson. This year, we returned with extended family to celebrate our parents' 50th wedding anniversary. We had high expectations and our accommodations exceeded them. The owner was great as we made our arrangements, and every thing was in order when we arrived. Given that we needed a pretty big place, I wasn't sure what we would get with limited options. Fortunately, what we got was perfect for us, and we are all ready to go back! The home is well appointed and comfortable. The lake view through the big windows was magnificent, especially at sunset. The deck and outdoor dining furniture - along with the ample kitchen and indoor dining area were comfortable for our whole family. The bunk room for kids was a nice feature. The location is close to Polson and just a short drive to Big Fork where we caught a play at their renowned playhouse. And last but certainly not least, the lake water at the house was clear and great for skiing and swimming, the dock was perfect for our boat, and the paddle boards and kayaks provided some extra fun. Truly a lovely, welcoming place that calls you back...

You know you are in the right spot, when your family walks in an says WOW, WOW, WOW....We loved the walk around deck, beautiful sunsets, comfortable beds, late night family talks around the fire pit, big family meals for 18 in the spacious kitchen, paddle boarding, fishing off the dock and a Small Visitor Early Morning Visitor....A Small Grizzly Bear decided to walk up the stairs for an early morning snack. A True "Epic" Montana Experience and Adventure! Thank you Dave for sharing your beautiful home with us!
