The true 'Cabin on the Lake' experience, with infinite options for families and groups of all sizes. The property has its own dock on Spoon Lake, with gently sloping access for swimming, sunbathing, canoeing, or kayaking (our lake is motorless to protect the loons, making it quiet and safe.) There is easy access to incredible mountain biking and hiking just steps from the front door. Glacier National Park, West Glacier town, and access to the North Fork of the Flathead River are within about 10 minutes. World class skiing and the resort town of Whitefish is only 20 minutes away.
Either rent the main 4 bedroom, 2 bath cabin on its own, or bring more people and add anything from one to four extra 1 bedroom/1 bathroom cabins on the same property. The guest cabins are never rented to a separate party from the main house, so your privacy is assured.
The main cabin has an inviting Great Room for gathering, with a gas stove, two large couches, and plenty of seating and tables, as well as a TV for movies. We have a large video and DVD library with plenty of kids shows, too. This room also has a very long wooden dining table with long benches to accommodate up to 20 people comfortably for meals and games after supper. The Great Room also opens to a large wraparound covered deck with plenty of seating available to watch the loons on the lake.
Each of the additional cabins sleeps two people and comes with two twin beds that can be converted to king size. Each cabin has its own 3/4 bathroom with shower. Two of the cabins also have microwaves and small fridges. In each cabin, you can look out at the peaceful lake when you wake up each morning.
The main cabin has a fully equipped kitchen and a Weber gas grill on the covered deck. All bedding, quilts, linens, and towels are provided.
Just imagine how much fun you can all have hanging out together at this truly remarkable mountain lake property. Civilization is only 8 miles away in Columbia Falls, with antique shops, a great coffee shop, a family barbeque spot, and the excellent Three Forks Grill for fine dining. High end shopping and dining are also 20 minutes away in Whitefish.
You can fly into Glacier International Airport and arrive at your mountain lake getaway in 20 minutes. Missoula International Airport is only 2 hours and 15 minutes away and Spokane WA is only 4 1/2 hours away.

Owner purchased this House in 2006
Why Owner chose Columbia Falls
We think this is the most wonderful spot on the planet. First of all, we bought it because we fell in love with Spoon Lake the moment we first saw it. It is so quiet and peaceful and we can really relax here. It is also a great place to entertain all of our family and friends. We love swimming in Spoon Lake because the water is warm in July and August and into September and it is so fresh you could drink it. It is a place where we connect with each other as a family, and with our friends for summer and winter fun.
What makes this House unique
We love exploring Glacier National Park and all its hiking trails, beautiful scenery, and wildlife that you can even see from the road. We love the hiking trails right around our cabin. We fish and swim all the time from the dock and we play soccer and football in the open field by the main cabin. The North Fork of the Flathead River is a wonderful river for a family float trip and for fly fishing. Polebridge, Montana is a unique place to go for amazing pastries and incredible views. There is also a fun Fourth of July parade up there. We love Whitefish for skiing and shopping and great restaurants. One of our favorite restaurants in Whitefish is Wasabi (a sushi place). We also like to check out the local antique shops in Columbia Falls. The best restaurant in the region, The Three Forks Grille, opened in C. Falls a few years ago, and is only 8 minutes from our cabin. The Smiths grocery in Columbia Falls has everything we need from fishing gear and worms, to health food and a great selection of floaties. They even have blow up rafts in the summer usually. Also we go to Costco in Kalispell to get supplies when we have every bed full in the summer.

Wonderful home and a great location!
Spoon Lake Camp was a perfect home base for us during our first trip to Glacier National Park. There was a lot of space for the 6 of us. We went into the park or nearby Whitefish every day and twice we took a dip in the lake afterwards to cool off. Thank you for sharing your little slice of paradise with us for the week!
Very pretty place for family gathering
Property was good size for extended family. Lake was quiet & private.
Close to west entry of Glacier N.P..
We enjoyed our stay. Would have liked more "beach" area at lake for small kids.
Perfect Weather. Perfect place.
We had a small family get together and it couldn't have been better. We had some of our party cancel at the last minute and they missed a wonderful week. The house is spacious and well stocked with plenty of comfortable furniture and a huge dining room table with benches that made meals more fun. The cabins are comfortable and have great views of the lake and a nice outdoor seating space. There are plenty of trails for hiking or mountain biking nearby.
The lake is as pretty as the pictures show. It's warm for swimmers. Most days, we were the only ones on the water.
The owners were very quick to answer questions and had great recommendations for things to do and places to go. We would definitely recommend this place to friends and hope to return. We all agreed that of all the places we have stayed in the Flathead, this is by far our favorite. We loved it.
Awesome Retreat close to Glacier National Park
Our extended family of 18 just enjoyed a two week stay at Spoon Lake Camp. It was an ideal location and provided a relaxing place to retreat after long days of hiking/touring Glacier National Park. When we weren't enjoying GNP, we enjoyed relaxing by the dock on Spoon Lake or sitting on the porch listening to the loons. This retreat has all the amenities needed for a large gathering and is close to shopping, dining, the park, yet is in a quiet, peaceful location. It was a perfect location for a fantastic Montana vacation!
Wonderful home and location
Spoon Lake fit the bill for our family reunion. The home was clean and the setting was beautiful. We had plenty of space for the eleven in our party and would have been able to accommodate the two more who cancelled late without any problem. The location provides easy access to Glacier. We didn't hit any of the local towns as our time was all focused on the national park. That said we did carve out some time for swimming and paddling on Spoon Lake. Would recommend the owners provide a kayak/canoe and/or bring your own as we did. The kitchen had all we needed to prepare multiple types of meals.
We stayed at Spoon Lake Camp with extended family and had a wonderful time. We really enjoyed the proximity to hiking, boating, and Glacier. And we love that the lake is non-motorized and thus peaceful and perfect for swimming and paddle boarding. The house was comfortable and roomy and had everything we needed. The owners were incredibly helpful when we had questions. We'll definitely be back!
