House, 5 Bedrooms (1 king, 3 queen, 3 single beds), 3 Baths,
Enjoy breath taking big sky sunsets from the 1,700 square foot deck just 20' from the shore of alpine pure McGregor Lake. This 5 bedroom 3 bathroom guest ranch retreat has everything to make your vacation a truly memorable experience. McGregor Lake is one of the finest lake trout fishing lakes in Montana. McGregor Lake is spring fed and its pristine alpine-lake-quality waters are what companies bottle and sell as pure spring waters.
If you like the water there is boating, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, water skiing, jet skiing, fishing, catching cray fish, sun bathing on the dock, dangling your feet in the water or just floating around on an inner tube. There is also hiking, 4 wheeling, mountain biking, off road travel and horse back riding in the nearby Kootenai National Forest. For the more sedate or just wanting to unwind, the in-deck hot tub is the place to start, a casual walk to observe and photograph the local wildlife, a good book on the deck swing or by the waterfall or just sit on a bench and ponder the mountains across the Lake. You can also use the guest ranch as a base camp for all that Northwest Montana and the Flathead Valley have to offer. This place has it all.

Fantastic Family (or Anybody) Escape
This is our fourth year coming here and we love it! It has everything you need for a lake vacation. The boats and kayaks are so fun, there are plenty of life jackets for kids and adults, and the house has everything you need, even for a most delish crawdad boil (traps and all). And the owners are awesome! Thank you for providing an excellent experience every year.
Beautiful Home on McGregor Lake!
We recently spent 7 days at the house on McGregor Lake with our family. It was such a beautiful house! The kids spent hours a day snorkeling in the clear blue/green water. We enjoyed being able to use the paddle boat, water toys and life vests for everyone. The house is fully stocked with all the comforts of home, and Karen and Don went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable; they even took us for a boat ride around the lake! I have zero complaints about our experience with the lake house or the owners. In fact, the kids have been asking when we get to go back. I recommend this vacation home and hope to go back again as well.
Thanks for everything, Cromwells!
A great family holiday
We just returned from yet another wonderful trip to Montana. Don and Karen continue to be absolutely wonderful hosts. Our children adore them too and can't wait to see them each summer at the lake. The house itself continues to have absolutely everything we need and each year there are small upgrades done around the house making it even better. Although the weather wasn't perfect, even on windy days our kids loved swimming in the waves and jumping off the dock. There are more than enough kayaks and tubes to play around with and we loved the addition of the paddle boat this year. There are always enough life jackets for kids and adults. We highly recommend this as a great place to come and relax and enjoy time together as a family. Our kids' favorites: Canoeing, kayaking, tubing, swimming, hot tub, jumping off the dock, camp fires, catching crawfish, and waking up in the morning looking straight out to the lake. We can't wait for our return next year.
McGregor Lake Guest Ranch
My family and I had a wonderful stay at your McGregor Lake Guest Ranch! Each summer we rent a home for a week and this was by far the cleanest and best supplied home! Hope to return another summer! Thank you for making our stay so comfortable and special!
Karen & Don, Thank you doesn't even seem adequate for the week we spent at your gorgeous cabin! This was just what our family needed after the loss of my stepfather - and it was such a relaxing week for our whole family. Your house was amazing an we loved spending time on the lake and watching sunsets on the deck! We hope we will be able to come stay again in the future. You and Don are fantastic hosts and the kids loved the pontoon ride around the lake! Thank you again for everything it was an incredible week! Hope we can be back in the future!!
Round 2 even better
Didn't think it could get any better than our first rental but it did! Don and Karen have made several upgrades (not that it needed them) in the past 4 years and will obviously continue to keep their property updated. This is by far the nicest rental property we have ever rented....I'm sure we will be back again.
