Beautiful Setting and actually a 4.75 star rating

  • 4 of 5

I am late in writing this review, not because of the property but because I am somewhat of a procrastinator.

We stayed at this property Sept of 2016, after labor day.We knew it was older and dated because of some of the reviews. We liked the number of beds and baths. When we got there we were not disappointed with the setting, however the inside was a little more dated than we expected. We got on with exploring the place and settling in. The house is VERY cluttered with family items and therefore VERY dusty to dirty.

The shag carpet is old and dirty from years of family usage and also rentals. I'm not going to continue to beat the place up, it needs to be updated, un-cluttered, and the lighting needs to be improved. That being said you couldn't get a better place on the lake for the price. The deer are out front all the time and we enticed them with apples until the last morning when they were at the side slider looking for their apples. It is calm and serene sitting on the deck in the mornings looking out over the water having coffee. There was plenty of space for the 6 of us and room for more. I visited with the owner after we got back and told him what our concerns were and he said that he realized it needed updating and they were planning on doing some during this past winter. I did suggest to him that he might check on his cleaning people as they didn't appear to be doing a good job. I asked him about the beds not being made and he stated that was an answer to complaints about the sheets not being clean. Just know when you get there the beds will not be made up and the sheets at the ends of the beds need to be put on. All in all we had a great 4 days, and it is a great place to relax, and spend time with family. Remember this is not only a rental but a family vacation home that has been in their family for years, and it shows with all the family memorabilia. The views are excellent. I would rent this property again, and also recommend it for anyone wanting a great place to relax and maybe pretend you are at Grammas' house for the week. I gave this place less than a 5 star because of the overall condition of the inside of the house.

Hayden Lake

Excellent Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

The views from this property are spectacular and breath taking. We loved relaxing in the hot tub and having the local dear feed on the lawn only feet from us. At night we would gather around the large outdoor fire pit roasting marshmallows and telling scary stories. The front wrap around covered porch is perfect for reading and relaxing with the majestic Mission Mountains for your view. We loved exploring the entire Finley Point and seeing the many cherry orchids. Gorgeous country. The house is large, it accommodated all of us and had three bathrooms which was a bonus... The managers thought of everything from fresh sheets and swim towels to a fully stocked Kitchen. We didn't have to bring anything but food and ourselves. We had a blast and plan on booking again next year.

Lake Havasu

Dream Location

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular views and this is absolutely the best location on all of Flathead Lake. Cabin is a trip back to your grandparents summer home. Rocking chairs on the porch overlooking the bay provided us a great view of the kids swimming and kayaking in the secluded cove. The hot tub was perfect after swimming and the fire pit was perfect for roasting marshmallows. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything! Our family vacation was the best ever and we would highly recommend this location!!!!! Great time :)

Prime location

  • 4 of 5

As other reviews have said, this is definitely the best spot on the lake. I was excited to arrive and see the outdoor setting was even better than I'd expected. We got a good rate for the week after Labor Day which we appreciated. Neighbors were friendly and informative. I knew it was a retro, older furnished place but I didn't expect so much clutter and family memorabilia everywhere. There were only 3 empty shelves in the kitchen cupboard for our large group to store food. The microwave was filthy inside. The kitchen lighting overhead looked like it had never been cleaned. Spiders in bedding, couches. Bathrooms were clean but smelled like mildew. Upstairs shower is not easy to fit into if you are a tall person. Old shag carpet looked like it had not been vacuumed in a long time. We got out the vacuum and it wouldnt even work. Several guys worked on it to unplug the miles of debris that plugged the hose. The last night we were there the water ran out. There was supposed to be a water filter left to replace old filter but there wasn't one so the water stopped. Lucky it was the last night.

I booked this rental and I definitely heard a lot of grumbling from family as they arrived and saw the conditions inside the house.

In summary this location is great so I gave it the stars based on that. It was wonderful to be with my family. We all agree that the time spent outdoors was the best. We wouldn't stay here again based on the indoor lack of cleanliness and water issues.

Cook's Cove is a lovely setting right on Flathead Lake. It is great for families with children who like to play in the water and has kayaks, a canoe and a paddle boat to use in the water. The hot tub is great after a swim in the cold water and the fire pit offers a place to gather at night. We had deer visiting all day long and loved the rocking chairs on the porch.

Our family of 13 including 5 little boys had a great time.

Retro cabin with stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

View, view, view. How can you not be relaxed looking over a gorgeous lake and an awe inspiring view of the Rockies! The cabin has a great retro feel, and has everything you need for awesome meals and great times with family/friends! Nature surrounds you whether you want woods or water. The rainbow colored couch was so comfortable that you cannot resist a nap!
