Charming and Gracious Base of Operations

  • 5 of 5

We are a week removed from a wonderful stay at Small Talk! This charming and comfortable home provided us with the quiet and peaceful rejuvenation we needed to fuel our exploration of Flathead Lake and its artsy towns as well as the magnificent Glacier National Park. There were three of us plus a wee dog, but the house could easily have slept six. (Ten if there are couples)

Lovingly appointed with western treasures, and blessed with views-the home is a destination in itself. Yet so much lies beyond the porches to explore! The home's location is remote enough to give you peace and quiet yet very close to everything you need. Restaurants, brew pubs and recreation were readily available-and many were dog friendly too. As far as restaurants go, we had our best meals at Tamarack brewing company in Lakeside (get the fish tacos!) as well as the De Soto Grill in Kalispell. In terms of recreation, we hiked till we were sore, swam till we were pruned, fished till the cooler was full of whitefish, and kayaked till we ran out of time. In a week, we never ran out of things to do. One thing you must see is Glacier National Park. Epic may not be strong enough to describe it. I think it unseated Yosemite and Acadia as my favorite National Parks. My son just looked over my shoulder at what I am doing and said, "I miss it there!" We do. Great vacation. Great rental.

Felt like a week visiting friends!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Lakeside on Flathead Lake. We wanted to explore the area and generally relax. Because Jay and Sue were such good hosts, our hopes were realized. The cabin is good that we made a floorplan drawing to use in the future if we should ever build in the area.

It was well laid out, comfy and clean. We enjoyed being able to hike and walk our dog around the property...a short drive off the main road but feels far away from the world. Thanks, J and S for making us feel so welcome as if we were good friends...there to help but never hovering. Hope to see you again!

Looking for a quiet clean place to stay can be a daunting task. However, when if your looking for serenity and cleanliness, then look no further. Upon arrival, the owner greeted us with much helpful information about activities in the area. As they live next door, they never were around, (in your space) and offered their phone number, just in case anything was needed.

The exterior of the home offers covered back and side porches, that offers long range mountain and lake views. There were all ways deer in the yard and off of the drive going toward the house as well.

The interior of the home was both clean and well maintained. You will love the floor plan as it offers a master suite downstairs with the two additional bedrooms upstairs. Very nice kitchen, dining room and living room with fireplace.

Just a great place to stay, the drive is a little ways off the main road and there is no drive by traffic as the home is located at the end of its road. The community of Lakeside is a laid back and very relaxing. THIS CABIN WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

Absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sue and Jay Hokers home. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. The house is both beautiful and comfortable. The view is tremendous! We felt our stay there was blessed. The location is nice because it is both close to Lakeside yet out in the forest. Very nice. Both jay and sue are welcoming and helpful. Our stay at their house was fabulous!
