About Owner/Manager

We are a family of four. Two boys who are now 13 &11 We are European and Canadian. We love to travel and enjoy the serenity of our Montana property.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2007

Why Owner/Manager chose Trout Creek

We chose this property because it was so peaceful and because we had a wonderful opportunity to build the home from our imaginations.

What makes this house unique

We had this home custom built and every room has our personal touch in it. Including all bathtubs that were made by hand! We love the tropics too so we have a lot of bali type furniture in the house. Therefore the name Pineapple Lodge. Our home is built for comfort. The area calls for driving to get to certain places but all the drives are traffic free and just like living inside a postcard.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at the property. The house is beautiful, definitely a little worn at this point, but super well done. The kitchen is incredible, the whole place felt like home as soon as we walked in. The yard was very large, and great for our group to play music on the sonos and play games in the yard. Tina (Property Manager) was very accommodating for our arrival time and did an excellent job walking us through. We loved our trip, and are hoping to do a family trip to the same property next year.

We stayed at this beautiful vacation home for our family reunion. There was plenty of room for the 25 of us. Very clean and spacious with a spectacular view. We definitely plan on coming back for our reunions. The owner crystal was very sweet and answered all of our questions and concerns. Tina was amazing. She was there to help figure out the hot tub to bringing a sprinkler for the kids to cool down. Responded quickly when needed. Thank you pineapple lodge for all of our great memories!!!!

Family reunion July 8-15th 2017

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property, it could have been better if there had been a/c because of the hot weather, blinds would of been helpfull on the high windows because of the sun in afternoon made it troublesome while cooking dinner, also no screens on the windows on the main level, we had to keep windows opened for air flow. The house was beautiful and kitchen was great, had plenty of room for everyone that was at our family reunion, manager was very helpful with our concerns. Thank you for making our family reunion memorable.

Enjoyed our stay, but...

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. This was a beautiful home, but has a few issues.

#1 It needs some good cleaning. When we got there they were not ready for us, so this could be part of the cleaning issue. (We always take our shoes off, but could not as our feet were black within 1 hr of not wearing shoes. Hot tub was not cleaned, windows could use a wash, Kitchen cabinets need to be cleaned inside etc.).

#2 They could also use some time repairing and replacing items. (Over half the windows had no screens which was a pain as we needed to keep windows shut at night because of outside cats and small bugs attracted to the lights, even thought the temps that weekend were in the high 80s and 90s. No guts in gas grill, locks did not work on the doors to the house, exposed wiring, etc.)

We were told there had been damage done to the home from renters from New Years Eve.

So these issues were probably from that but in our opinion, these items should have been fixed before renting out.

But on a positive note, the owner was there and was very nice and quick to fix issues, like the gas grill, and answer questions. I really dont like to post reviews and especially a bad review and that is not my intent. I just would want honest comments to know what to fix if this were my place. We did have a wonderful time though, Loved the large home for family events! Love the view off the deck, enjoyed the wooded privacy and the large yard to play games.

Fantastic family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time in Montana and really enjoyed the property. There was a ton of room for our party (24 altogether). The lawn area more than accommodated a volleyball net, inflatable kids pool, slip and slide, and bocce, all at the same time. There is a great little beach area a few minutes away that we went to almost every day that we were there. Given that the weather was so hot, it was a great spot to cool down. The online correspondence and transaction was very seamless and the on-site contact that we had was very helpful with every request and question that we had. Many thanks to Ben and Krystal for letting us enjoy their place for the week.
