We are both born and raised in Montana and love the state dearly. The orchard has been in the family for over 30 years and the orchard house was completely rebuilt in 2010. Our family has been coming to our Finley Point lake place since 1942. purchased this house in 1942

average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time for us to stay at the orchard house and we love it! It is the perfect accommdation to meet the needs of the group we have. We love being able to cook meals and eat on the deck. It is so nice to have access to the washer and dryer. It's also nice to be able to walk to the park and pick cherry. It is also convenient to stores and centrally located to the activities we enjoy.

Solar screens on the small windows above the doors on the lake side would be a nice addition. The afternoon sun is brutal if you are sitting in the living room or dining room and it really heats up the house.

Also, water runs a long time in both toilets upstairs. Not sure if they affect the water bill.

We look forward to our next stay!!

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our 8 day stay at The Orchard House was absolutely amazing! 8 adults and 3 kids enjoyed every minute at this spacious, well stocked castle! We spent most of the time between the front and back porches and enjoyed being entertained all day long by the deer and birds. The cherries were a great treat! It was an easy walk to the beach. We look forward to returning some day and staying longer!

Owner's Response: Yay! We are so glad you and the kids loved your stay at the Orchard House. It warms my heart to think of all the special memories being made across Montana when you mix family, friends, sunshine and water. A lot of people ask us about that walk to the lake and beach at the state park. Glad you felt it was an easy walk! Thanks again and hope to see you next year!

Beautiful scenery, clean and comfy home!

  • 5 of 5

The Orchard House was perfect for our stay on Flathead Lake. Located on Finley Point, it is a beautiful setting with great views and close to Polson. The home is gorgeous, very clean and comfortable with everything you need for cooking. The manager provided excellent customer service.

Our Orchard House Stay was Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We reserved the Orchard House for 6 nights, 7 days for a family getaway - six adults, 4 children (ages 4 to 9) and were so thrilled with the amount of space and the size of the yard! It was absolute heaven for our grandkids as they had so much room outside to play outdoor games, hide & seek, etc. They really enjoyed watching the deer every evening and after a hard day at play, sleeping VERY well at night.

During our stay, we would see deer every evening, sometimes in the morning as well. We had as many as 16 deer (bucks, does and a fawn) in the front yard at one time. During our last evening, apparently the chief buck decided to make an appearance..... the first white-tailed buck I've ever seen that was as large as he was! They were always very entertaining!

We highly recommend renting a boat if you don't have one with you. We cruised Flathead Lake from end-to-end, checking Bigfork out during our last full day (cruised up to it instead of driving). We also visited Wild Horse Island and tubed on the lake almost every day!

We did our grocery shopping at the Safeway store in Polson, of which there is also a Walgreens in the same parking lot. If you're a Starbucks fan, you'll find a location inside of Safeway. The service is a bit slow, so allow some extra time to get your order filled.

Back to the house... as the details indicate, there are two fully stocked kitchens. This was a great option for a group as large as ours. We utilized both refrigerators and did prep work in the downstairs kitchen while others were in the main floor kitchen cooking. We organized both refrigerators.... main floor for everyday food items, lower floor for less often needed items.

The bedrooms are all sized perfectly and well furnished. The beds are very comfortable, with everyone getting a good night's rest each night.

Everything was just absolutely perfect!

As a side note, be sure to check with the property manager to see if anyone will be visiting the property during your stay so you'll know to expect them. Several friends/family members of the owner's family came onto the property and into the large cherry orchard, a visit we weren't aware was going to be made. We were a bit concerned as our grandchildren were outside playing with people around that we had no idea who they were until I greeted them. And since we were responsible for the property during our stay, we were concerned about liability issues. All was smoothed over.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review! It sounds like you had a wonderful week and a lot of fun on the water! I love that you took the boat all the way to Big Fork and went tubing every day! It warms my heart to think of all those kids sleeping so well because of all of their time in the good old Montana outdoors. Thank you for leaving those extra paper products for the next guest. Thank you again for sharing your concerns about the unexpected visitors to the orchard. We will for surely give future tenants a heads up when extended family is visiting Finley Point. We hope to see you again! Happy Summer!

We had a fabulous stay at the Orchard House.

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous property. Deer and wild turkeys roamed through the orchards. The wrap around porch was a lovely respite after a day of rafting, kayaking, and hiking. The kitchens were large and well stocked with dishes and pots and pans.

The only difficulty we had was that we filled the garbage can long before trash pick up day. Since garbage cannot be left outside unless in a locked container, a second garbage can would have been a big help.

I highly recommend this house to any family looking for a relaxing getaway.
