One of the best vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacations ever! I don't even know where to begin. The privacy of the cove at this home made all of the difference. Barb and Bob's home is towards the end of Finley point. The cove is unbelievable and the view is spectacular! We had our own private beach with clear calm waters. You really don't need to leave the property to enjoy yourself. We had kayaks available which we took full advantage of. Our husbands went fishing off the point, didn't catch anything but thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The home itself completely lends itself to relaxation. We spent one day in glacier national Park, came home through Whitefish on our way and had dinner, great little town to spend some time in. We went to Polson for grocery shopping, only about a 15 minute drive. While we were in Polson we drove up to the Kerr damn, great experience. If you are concerned about the owners living above you, don't worry about it. They are as involved or uninvolved as you would like them to be. If you choose to, you likely would not see them other than the beginning or the end of your stay. We were so happy to have them there, they made the experience that much better. They could not have been nicer or more helpful. Bob took us out on his boat for about three hours. He gave us a lot of local and historical information, he was very interesting to spend time with. Barb was very gracious, we spent a few hours with them one evening before we left and had great conversation with them both. We went for a long walks around the point, saw several deer throughout our stay. We also took advantage of their tennis court. The views from both bedrooms are amazing! I could go on and on but just know you can't go wrong with renting this home. As other reviewer said, this is one place that we stayed that we would definitely love to go back to!

The most beautiful property on Flathead Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We were in awe when we arrived a Bob and Barb's home. The setting, the lake, the pebble beach and the architecture of the house far exceeded our expectations. The photos really do not do this home and property justice. The home is in a very unique setting at the tip of Finley point on a very private pebble beach with rock cliffs on both sides. The sunset from the patio was stunning. The only other inhabitants were the nesting eagles and osprey along with an occasional passing boat. This may be the best lot on the lake - and that is saying a lot - it's a big lake.

Our family of six spent nearly every waking moment outside - on the patio, beach, swimming, jumping of a 25 ft rock cliff, kayaking, playing tennis, hiking, jet skiing and boating. The list of things to do here is endless. We are avid tennis players and the tennis court is one of the most well maintained outdoor courts I have every played on. We kayaked nearly every day, usually out to a few uninhabited islands that were home to nesting eagles. We even hung our hammocks on the island and slept there one night. The pebble beach is ideal for swimming and the kids had a blast jumping off the rock cliff right on the property. Bob even took us out boating for a few hours. He gave us tour and history of the lake and pulled the kids on an innertube.

Bob and Barb are the most wonderful hosts and they were very concerned that we enjoy ourselves. As an example, the winch motor for Bob's boat malfunctioned while we were there. To make sure we got out on a boat trip he spent nearly 3 hours manually launching and retrieving the boat. I felt guilty seeing him work so hard, but it just goes to show what wonderful people they are and how important it is to them that their guests enjoy their stay.

I have now stayed at around 20 homes through VRBO and HomeAway. This home and the hosts are one of the best. I had some reservations about staying here with the owners still on-site. However, you will soon realize that having Bob and Barb as your hosts is and incredible plus.

Exceptional Property, Exceptional Hosts

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do a good job representing the high quality and attention to detail found throughout this property. However photos cannot capture the experience of sitting on the dock in the private alcove watching the late summer sunset over mountains and pristine glacial waters, the only sound being the occasional fish jumping. Our family was mesmerized from the moment we arrived, and completely renewed and refreshed by the time we left. The homeowners are truly wonderful people - Some of the most generous and kind we have ever met. Guaranteed, anyone who stays at this amazing property will feel lucky indeed to have found it, and will have plans to return.

Phenomenal experience

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful. The home itself is a work of art, the views are unimaginable. The deer roam free on Finley point and there are plenty of picture opportunities from the deer as well as the Big Sky Sunsets.

The accomodations were fantastic and the hosts are wonderful people. This is the best place to enjoy nature and take in the best view of Flathead Lake.

We are already planning our return trip next year.

Thanks Bob and Barb for sharing your piece of Paradise.
