About Carole Phillips
I've recently taken a job that leaves my home available for vacation rental. I'll come back and retire one day but for now, my loss is your gain. The picture is of me and my kids at the eldest's wedding on the shore of the lake.
Why Carole Phillips chose Murphy's at the Lake
This property has been in the family since 1948 with this house being constructed in 2010. Originally purchased by my Parents and Grandparents after World War II ended and my parents moved 'West of the Mountains', this spot has been a summer retreat for 5 generations now. In 2007 I decided to make this my full-time home and built the new house in 2010.

Great location, clean, well equiped, vacation home
We had a great week here despite some closed roads due to the fire. The house worked well for three generations. Lots of room to come together or privacy. The location is beautiful, right on the lake. We rented kayaks for the week, good call. The house had the essentials and more, was clean and comfortable. We stocked up at the butcher and super market in Columbia Falls and enjoyed eating most meals at home on the deck. Josephine's and the distillery right next door are highly recommended and close by. Good place...
Beautiful Property on Lake Five
Our family of 9 gathered at this lovely home to celebrate our patriarch's 80th birthday. This group enjoys meeting at the national parks and have visited many beautiful sites together. While we were sad that Glacier Park is suffering from devastating fires, we appreciated being in Carole Phillips home where we could relax, cook our meals, and enjoy the porch and walks in the neighborhood. The kitchen is very well equipped and we took turns preparing our specialties. It is a very cozy home. The quilts all match adding lots of charm. There was plenty of room for everybody from 12 years of age to 80! Thanks for sharing your home with us,Carole.
Comfortable house by lake 5
We were a group of ten including 4 children, and we were planning to see Glacier NP, which is very close, but the West part of the park was closed due to fire, so we ended spending more time in the house than intended. And the house is great for just that! The kids loved the play house and there were inflatables that were put to great use. There is a great balcony and a terrace downstairs if you want to keep a closer eye on the kids. Great collection of DVDs and VHS to revise your classics.
The kitchen was well equiped (including condiments), although the hot plates were a bit slow.
The master bedroom was quite comfortable, but the couple sleeping downstairs had issues with the mattress.
We did see the neighbours' dog (or a neighbour's dog at least), which wasn't a problem until I had to clean up its poo. It happened once during our one week stay, and I understand this is not something the manager can easily control, but it made the garden a bit less perfect.
Would definitely consider coming back there.
We had the most fantastic time at this home -- it worked out perfectly for our family reunion. The house was clean and in great shape - every little detail had been provided for. Carole was very responsive to our questions. I can't say enough good things -- it really made our time there magical!
It was Great!
A wonderful vacation at a beautiful location. Everything we could ask for and so close to Glacier Park. We'll definitely come back some time.
Great family vacation spot
This was a perfect spot to have a three generation vacation. The house had everything we needed and more. Play area and toys were a great addition for the little kids. Bedrooms worked will for naps and sleeping. We all loved the big front porch deck. Location was perfect for frequent visits to Glacier. Thanks so much!,
Just a few short miles outside the west entrance to Glacier National Park. There are no better attractions to be had than the natural beauty of the park.
