My wife, son and I stayed at his nice little ground floor mother-in-law apartment for three days starting on the 4th of July. Karen and Earl and great people. They invited us to hang out with them on the dock while they shot off fireworks for the 4th. It was a fun time, even though we felt like we were intruding on their family time, they never made us feel that way at all.
The apt is very nice. Clean as a whistle and very comfortable. King sized bed was great and the full sized futon was great for our 10 year old son.
The house is right across the road from the lake. You take a very cool tram down to the dock. Water was cold at 54 degrees, but clear as a bell.
Overhead fan above the bed made for a nice breeze when the temps got up to the high 80's. Fully stocked kitchen made it easy to make meals so we didn't go broke eating out.
We rented a boat at Wild Waves Rentals down the road a bit in Lakeside. Was a ton of fun. Highly recommended. For meals out, you can take in some great pizza and other fare at the McKenzie River Pizza Company in Whitefish (about 25 miles north of the house.)
The Going to the Sun road is a must do. Winds it's way East-West through Glacier National Park. Beautiful drive, but they are doing some rebuilding the road so there is gravel to contend with. Make sure you stop at Lake McDonald on the way. Cool lodge and a nice place to explore around the park.
Overall, I have to give this place and the area a 10! It was a great time! Highly recommended!
