Amazing place to spend a week.
It's been a longtime family dream. To rent a house, pack up everything we need, enjoy some sun and relaxation with every amenity at our fingertips. The dream was not only to make this getaway happen but, to enjoy it with friends. A few years ago, hubby and I started scheming in investigating and planning just such a trip. We found it!
Flathead Lake is gorgeous. Polson sits at the southern end of the lake and we found The Orchard House a short 8-mile jog North of Polson on Finley Point. The house sits on a honest-to-goodness Flathead Cherry Orchard. It sleeps up to 15 people, has 2 fully stocked kitchens, towels and linens are provided. All we needed to bring was our clothes, food and beach stuff.
So why is this the dream? My kids would probably say, "Duh, mom. Vacation is fun!" And they'd be right. I mean, it's good to shake things up and step out of your day-to-day life. Plus I think that my kids grow and change so much after every trip we take. Their little bodies and minds expand as they experience new places and new adventures. And the Flathead region is stunning.
The house is well appointed with comfortable but very up to date furnishings. White leather couches, super comfy beds, the whole property is clean and lovely. With that huge expanse of windows and a 360 degree wrap-around porch, we enjoyed lounging and dining outside as well as inside.
The property itself is wonderful. So many cherry trees! I can only imagine what it is like in the Spring. Dreamy.
The boat slip is very close by, about 1/4 mile - a nice walk. And as a mom to young kids I prefer to not actually be on the water. I was able to let the kids run around with peace of mind. That to me is golden.
I will be coming back for sure!
