Spending time on the gulf coast in Florida, heading Northwest to Montana is a great vacation change.
If you are not climbing Everest, and you like to golf, hike and fly fish, you need to check out the place we found at Flathead Lake. Last summer we vacationed at Flathead Lake with a group of friends; which was amazing at the “Moose Lodge”, which we abbreviated and called the "ML". When you are their, you will find out why it is called the "Moose Lodge" and the wildlife will also amaze you. The "ML" worked great with our large group; lots of room with a cozy feeling.
With our group from different locations, parking was not an issue for our four cars. If you check out other properties, you will understand why the "ML" works for a large group, as other places around the lake had one room and parking two or more cars could be an issue.
You have to experience the dock with it large beams; the people who built it knew what they were doing. When you walk on the dock you are officially on Flathead Lake, and you understand what clear lake water is all about. With the sun shinning, you can see your fishing lure at quite a depth. The dock is a gathering place as well, with room for friends boats as well as other people who joined us. At night you can sit back on the dock and watch the stars, with water all around you.
"ML" was our “Base Camp” aka "BC" with all of the adventures:
Jack Nicklaus designed the championship Eagle Bend Golf Course, which has views of Flathead Lake.
The fishing guide from Big Fork Montana knew where to catch the Mackinaw, "Lake Trout", as you will hear the locals call them.
Fly fishing and hiking were had at nearby Glacier National Park. Next time we are going to ride motorcycles through the mountain canyons on my way to "ML", and ship the golf clubs.
If you want a great place to vacation, at a beautiful place in the world, stay at the "Moose Lodge" you can call it "ML" if you want.
No need to climb everest, "Base Camp" is waiting.
