About Ed Beveridge
We are Ed & Jo Beveridge, the proud owners of the Spoon Lake Lodge since the middle of summer 2013. We fell in love with the serenity & beauty of Spoon Lake & the custom log-accented home built by the former owners/custom home builder the minute we saw it. It's our little slice of heaven in the Flathead forest just outside Glacier National Park and we would like you to enjoy it too. I'm Ed & I was born in Montana. I have spent most of my life living in or visiting Montana from wherever life has taken me. You never can get Montana out of your blood. I have been enjoying Glacier National Park like my parents most of my life & lived for many years on Flathead Lake. We also enjoyed Whitefish Lake for over 10 years when our kids were younger. My wife, Jo, is a converted Minnesota gal who loves her singing loons & the mountain lakes in Montana. We have been bringing our three sons to Montana since they were little. All three are married now and we have 1 granddaughter and 1 grandson and a bun in the oven. Our daughter-in-laws from Arizona, South Dakota, and Washington are also embracing our Montana dream.
Ed Beveridge purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Ed Beveridge chose Columbia Falls
This property is 8.5 miles north of Columbia Falls, a little town between Whitefish & West Glacier. Historic & remote Polebridge is 27 miles further up the road with remote access to glacial lakes along the western slopes of GNP. The pavement ends about 3 miles past Spoon Lake after the back road shortcut, Blankenship Road turnoff to West Glacier. Everyone who has stayed at the Spoon Lake lodge seems to spend most of their time hiking, fishing, exploring Glacier Park & all the wonderful surrounding communities & lakes. We offer you a very comfortable place with a spectacular serene view and the songs of our Spoon loons with all the comforts of home at the end of your day. Or just relax & take a spin in the rowboat or kayaks right outside your door.
What makes this Cabin unique
The lower apartment is fully contained & locked off from the owner's space on the top two floors. It has a covered patio w/ a BBQ and outdoor table & chairs. Walk right out to the grassy lakefront. You will have a full kitchen with a breakfast counter or folding table if you want more indoor eating space. , inside full-sized laundry room, & spacious full bath with a new steam shower. The living room has a large picture window & rock fireplace with gas logs. The bedroom also enjoys a large picture window view of the lake. It has both a queen bed & twin sofa bed. The living room has a new queen sofa bed and two wicker chairs with a cozy gas rock fireplace. All the towels & linens are provided for your arrival. You have the use of the rowboat & 2 kayaks. It is a mostly non-motorized 60-acre lake so it's very quiet. If you are visiting while my wife Jo, or one of my daughter-in-laws are upstairs you will no doubt be treated to any number of their fabulous edible creations.............if you're lucky it will be with huckleberries. Feel free to forage for huckleberries. Pray for Huckleberries in abundance.

Great stay on Spoon Lake
We loved our stay at Spoon Lake. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. The warmth from the charm just wraps around you with art work depicting the beautiful glacier area. We had a slight problem with the heat and hot water when we arrived, but the owner immediately took care of it, so it didn't impact our stay. Would definitely recommend this place to others.
I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again in the future.
What a beautiful spot!
Just had the best vacation in a long time! The weather didn't cooperate very well, lots of rain, but we still had a wonderful time. The burn ban was lifted so we could have a campfire, yay!
The house itself is very well appointed and cozy. The view out on the lake was just lovely. The loons have migrated I guess, we only heard them twice.
We did a lot of riding, trying to see as much of this special place as we could. Montana is truly a treasure!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and made the most of the fickle weather......we just never know what it will be like this time of year. Come again!

Had a wonderful stay
We had a wonderful 7 night stay and enjoyed ever minute of it. Although the West Entrance to the park was closed due to the Sprague Fire, this was still a great location and didn't prevent us from enjoying the many great hiking trails in the park. So close to Columbia Falls - highly recommend Backslope Brewery for lunch or dinner. The house provided everything we needed for our stay. Loved kayaking around the lake in the evenings and sitting in front of the fire the last couple of days when it got a bit cooler. The bed was extremely comfortable and the steam shower was a nice treat!
Would absolutely recommend this property to others and wouldn't hesitate to book again if we ever make a return visit to the area. The owner was prompt to respond and provided great recommendations - go to Perfect Cuts butcher shop in Columbia Falls for your meat - you won't be sorry!
If you go north to Polebridge stop at the Mercantile for a huckleberry bear claw. So delicious!
Thank you so much for your review
We look forward to your return one day.

Quiet home near Glacier National Park
Spoon Lake Lodge was a great place for a memorable vacation with family. We loved the home which was comfortable and provided everything we needed. We enjoyed just sitting in the outside chairs and relaxing overlooking the lake. Our grandson loved fishing from the dock. The home was conveniently located to West Glacier and the park entrance, or going to Columbia Falls for groceries. We had a great time exploring Glacier and the surrounding area and would highly recommend Spoon Lake Lodge. The Schneider's
Thank you for your kind thoughts!!! We're glad you enjoyed our little slice of heaven. Come again some day !!!
This is one of the most beautiful places we've stayed. The apartment looks out on a quiet lake, and the apartment itself is beautiful - well designed, beautifully decorated, and extremely clean and comfortable. It is also in a great location - an easy 20 minute drive from the west entrance to Glacier National Park and close to town so you can get groceries, etc. The apartment is the ground floor of a home, so you are aware of the family upstairs. However, they are very pleasant and helpful. Top ratings!
Thanks for the great review !! Hope we will see you again some day !!
Great first visit to GNP!
My husband and I enjoyed our 5 night stay at the cabin on Spoon Lake in early August. The location is very convenient to West entrance of GNP. After long days of hiking, fishing and exploring, we couldn't wait to get back. We missed visiting local restaurants as we felt the best evening view was our front porch. We were able to prepare dinner in the full kitchen and sit outside in the red chairs to watch the sun set with glass of wine in hand! I even took a quick swim in the lake but we never had time to use the kayaks. Maybe next time!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Come on back for some kayaking on the lake another time. The loons will be singing still.
Services and recreation throughout the area from Whitefish to the west and Glacier National Park to the east, south to Flathead Lake & Bigfork or North to Polebridge.
