The home rests in a spacious lot that includes a double row of cherry trees at the upper west end that bloom in early May and are ready to harvest by late July. The landscape slopes gently down to the lake and is beautifully landscaped with flowering trees and shrubs, stonework steps and a winding cart path to a pavilion at the lake. A large sloping lawn provides ample space and views of the lake and mountains beyond.
The pavilion provides a shaded picnic area, tables and chairs and an open loft for stargazing or sleeping, a bathroom, outdoor shower and small beverage area all right at the edge of the lake. A small refrigerator and sink keep things cool while you relax. A fire pit and stone patios extend the outdoor living room down near the water.

Both suites and the living room open onto the long deck spanning the length of the house. Outdoor chairs and a BBQ extend the living space for spectacular views and lake breezes.

The Orchard House was nothing short of spectacular. The property is incredibly beautiful, with lush landscaping and colorful flowers. The lakeside Pavillion was a perfect location to relax and take in the waterfront view. The house itself had everything we needed. It was stocked with amenities for kitchen, bath and laundry needs. The individual rooms with en suites had extremely comfortable beds, spacious bathrooms and high end finishes and furniture through the the entire space. The property is secluded and quiet allowing plenty of opportunity to sit back in the hot tub or the top floor deck and enjoy the stunning mountain views across Flathead Lake. Do yourself a favor and book this property without a single worry. The property managers had excellent communication and everything wentry smooth for our 7 day vacation. We would stay again in a heartbeat.
The house was almost perfectly suited for our group. Master bedrooms were spacious each with their own en suite. For the boys in the bunk rooms, the beds seemed a little short but were otherwise comfortable. Between the hall bathroom that the bunk rooms shared, the powder room upstairs and the facility at the pavilion, there were plenty of bathroom facilities. We rented a boat and made great use of the dock. add the charm of the cherry trees, the wild turkeys and the views of the northern lights over the lake, and it doesn't get much better than that.
