Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 were attending the Handbell Festival and thought this home was very comfortable, clean, well-stocked, and gorgeous views of Flathead Lake and the mountains. The kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms were extremely clean, with plenty of kitchen utensils and bathroom towels and soap. Our large group had lots of privacy in this very large house. We cooked our meals and thought the kitchen was very nice. I think this home would be ideal for a family vacation.

Great Family Gathering Place

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this property for the second year! The location and space and amenities meet our needs perfectly. The dock, fire pit, horse shoes and outside lawn & deck areas are favorites.

Great Home for Large Groups, lot of added amenities and great location.

  • 5 of 5

We booked a weeks stay for a Photography Workshop/WanderlustExpeditions.com. This house was perfect for our group of 14. Plenty of space and bathrooms. Lots of table space for the photographers to work on editing photos. Wireless Internet worked awesome, exactly what we need for our group. All the students loved the house and want to come back again for the next workshop. Jerry was quick to respond to all my questions and was accommodating. A wonderful host, we were able to meet Jerry and his family upon departure. House is close to downtown Polson, less than a 5 min drive. Lakeside access was a major plus for my kids. Also, has an outdoor hot tub. Last night of our stay we had a small gathering with all the students and made smores and enjoyed a campfire. Added bonuses upstairs and downstairs washer/dryers, 3 refrigerators, extra folding tables and chairs for our group dinner, new outdoor grill, and lots of beach towels. My only con is the bunk area, there is no door but we made a small barrier for privacy and bunk bed was noisy and uncomfortable but we just put mattress on the floor and kids were fine. We are looking forward to coming back in 2016!

Highly recommended: great property in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

This property provided a spectacular location for our family reunion and vacation on Flathead Lake. It provided plenty of space and you can't beat its location and excellent lake access with the private dock. The property is clean, well maintained, and stocked with all the essentials a large family needs - linens, dishes, utensils, etc. The owners work hard to ensure their clients get the best value and experience and they are extremely easy to work with. I highly recommend this property.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful setting for our biannual family get together of 14 adults. The home has lakeside access, but has a fairly steep decline/incline for some of the seniors in our group. We rented a boat one day and visited Wild Horse Island; didn't see any horses, but did see some beautiful mountain sheep. The home was very clean and comfortable, plenty of linens and kitchen utensils, and the laundry appliances came in very handy. We used the grill on the deck one evening also, worked great. One suggestion would be to add some bedside stands with lights in the bedrooms for those of us who like to read at night. Also, we were never able to get the jacuzzi to work in the master suite. The booklet the owners left had instructions for other things, but no instructions for the jacuzzi. The deck was a great place to hang out in the evenings; we could have used a few more chairs out there so everyone could sit down. We traveled to Glacier Park on several days during our stay, and enjoyed rafting and sightseeing there. Loved the rural setting.

Wonderful vacation home for families! Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Flathead Lake in this beautiful vacation home. The layout was absolutely perfect for our large family with lots of separate living areas to spread out and enjoy our time. Additionally, the multiple floors had child gates and toys in the basement - bonus! The location is awesome with waterfront access, horseshoe pit, fire pit and plenty of room to roam. We enjoyed the little town and appreciated that we still had access to Safeway and Walmart. A wonderful family vacation spot - highly recommended by our crew. We'll be back!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words! We're so glad your group enjoyed their stay. I enjoyed meeting and talking with several members of your group. I don't often get that opportunity. All nice folks. We do hope you will be coming back and hope next time you can spend more time "at the lake". We extend a "returning guest" discount for full week stays whether peak or off peak dates. Thanks again! Jerry
