Great Lodge Camp like Setting

  • 5 of 5

My group was looking for a fun place that had a rustic cabin like setting on Flathead Lake. We found it at this place. The property is well maintained and has a cozy feeling. It’s a cute place with lots of privacy with the different cabins and a separate bath house.

The public boat launch and boat ramp in Dayton Montana is less than a mile away next to the Dayton Yacht Club. We had a 24 foot boat and enjoyed the large dock. We had plenty of room the dock has large wheel bumpers and rubber dock moldings to help protect out boat. The forward slip is about 10 feet deep so we didn’t even have to raise our lower unit up at all. There’s a marina close by in the town of Big Arm about a 10 minute boat ride away that was very convenient for getting gas.

We had three couples and enjoyed the room and privacy. The house has nice well stocked kitchen and newer appliances. The property management company met us at the property. We had plenty of room to park our cars as well as our boat trailer. We stayed the last week in June and had great weather. Glacier National Park is about an hour away as well as several good golf courses.

We will for sure stay here again on our next trip to Flathead Lake

What a great place. The owner's attention to detail is outstanding. It is a very well -maintained property. Love the moose decor. Very nice updated property. Included is a nice yard with lots of room for parking. The boat dock has room for 2 boats in private slips including lighting and power. We liked the well-stocked and organized kitchen. There is lots of room for dry, cold and frozen food with two refrigerator freezers. If you are really into cooking there is a great cookbook library, a chef coat and apron if you want to use them.

Owner left us lots of info and detail on restaurants, golf courses, fishing guides, performing arts theater, etc. We really enjoyed the classic movie selections. We had 10 people in our group. We had plenty of chairs to sit on the porch, dock, etc. I think we had 14 chairs for outside. There is even a winery in walking distance for tasting. The Idle Spur Restaurant with live music is also in walking distance as well.

We were there is September and we picked wild raspberries every morning for breakfast. If you want a rustic log cabin lodge type setting this place is it. It reminds me of going to summer church camp on Lake Coeur d"Alene,Idaho when I was growing up.

Great Family Reunion Retreat Compound

  • 5 of 5

I am from Detroit and vacation annually at Flathead Lake in beautiful Montana.

I highly recommend the "Moose Lodge." We love to cook and enjoy the well stocked kitchen. New appliances, self cleaning oven, newer high end dishwasher, two refrigerator freezers, large barbeque grille, newer large capacity washer and dryer etc. And they all work!

The house has a newer sofa and lazy boy recliners. It was well maintained and clean upon our arrival. The property management team met us at the property.

Our group loves to hike, bike, sea kayak, boat, water ski, air-chair, etc. Glacier Park is a great day trip for hiking etc. This place is a 10 minute boat ride to famous Wild Horse Island State Park. We saw several Rocky Mountain Sheep but couldn't find the horses maybe next time.

We also like to sing Karaoke and there's a great Montana Grille restaurant place called the "Idle Spur" within walking distance of Moose Lodge.

If you are a boater you will love this place, its got a very large dock with room for 2 boats in their own slips. A public boat launch is in the town of Dayton next to the Dayton Yacht Club about 1/2 mile away just across the bay.

Some of the places we've stayed in the past were a long walk to the dock or the water and only had parking for one or two cars with no room for our boat trailers. We had to rent space for our boat trailers. Moose Lodge has room for 4 cars and two boat trailers.

We will definitely be going back to "Moose Lodge" in Dayton, Montana.

Nice Place Reminds Me of Grirl Scout Camp as kid

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! I have vacationed before on Flathead Lake and have stayed on the east shore in different homes. We always bring our boats with us and usually have two families with two boats. Some of the challenges we've had in the past are high winds and big waves on the east shore.

Most homes we've stayed at have had older docks with only one slip and had a long walk from the lake to the house.

Moose Lodge is great when we stayed with our group we had room for both our boats and the dock is very large and we didn't have the big waves like we had on the east shore.

We had a party of 10 we had lots of room. The house had a well stocked kitchen with new appliances and two refrigerators. We stayed for a week and had lots of room to stock our food.

The house was very cleaned and well-maintained

I recommend the Moose Lodge its a great little "Rustic" place reminds me when I was small going to camp in the summer time. I live in California but grew up in Great Falls, Montana and used to go to girl scout camp in the summers in Augusta, Montana.

Moose Lodge

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend time with family and friends. Flathead Lake is such a beautiful Lake. When I was last there the water was crystal clear. I had friends from different parts of Montana come and share time with me.

We walked down to the Dayton Yacht Club to look at the sail boats and stopped off at the Mission Mountain Winery for wine tasting.

We fixed great meals. Moose Lodge has a great stocked kitchen. New appliances, cookware, outdoor barbecue grill and even moose dinner ware. After dinner we sat on the dock and watched the sunset.

On Sundays you can enjoy the sailboat races right off the dock.

If you need to do laundry there is a great washer and dryer. Plenty of towels available.

The lake views are spectacular from the living room and master bedroom. It is great to wake up to the beautiful sunrise and the sound of the water.

Moose Lodge is very convenient to leave in the morning and spend the day at Glacier Park. I have hiked back to Hidden Land and Avalanche Lake.

I have done day trips to the art galleries in Bigfork with the evening at the Bigfork Summer Playhouse.

It is very handy to go to Kalispell and Poulsen, plus great shopping in Missoula, Mt.

I would highly recommend planning a stay at Moose Lodge. It is a great place and the people in Montana are super.

The Prefect Montana Vaction

  • 5 of 5

if you are looking for a prefect vaction Moose Lodge is the place for you.

the first thing you see on arrival is the rustic lodge and cabins with a well manicured lawn The inside of the lodge is so comfortable with rustic theme throughout. I love the master bedroom it has sliding glass doors that open to the view of the lake.In the morning waking with the sun dancing on the beautiful Flathead is so amazing. During the day sitting on the docks watching the sailboats go by to evening sunsets over the lake. Making a bonfire at night sharing Heaven on Earth with family and friends. For me it has made lasting memories. I love this place and so glad to have spent time there.It is truly one of the most beautiful places in Montana. one more thing I think is important is the parking area for vehicles. I was surprised to see enough parking spaces for so many places to rent on the Flathead have very limited parking. Moose Lodge has the best of everything I highly recommend it.
