A magnificent lakeside cabin that is almost heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this beautiful location was a holiday of a lifetime. The two cabins were well fitted out and very comfortable, and the fire pit and dock provided magnificent views of the Mission Mountains across the lake. My kids had great fun swimming off the dock, tubing, paddle boarding, and jet skiing. Glacier Park is an hour north with some of the most scenic hikes one can imagine, and Lakeside provided a few places for eating out. A wonderful spot for a vacation.

Amazing cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing stay here. Cabin is everything listed in the description and more. Beautiful rustic cabin with a fully stocked kitchen and bathroom. Unfortunately due to weather we weren't able to utilize the dock for boating but we did enjoy the shoreside campfire.

No complaints about our stay here.

Perfect for our family----

  • 4 of 5

Our weeks stay was perfect! Love Flathead Lake, & we were fortunate to have perfect weather too. Having the smaller cabin right next to the main house worked out great for grandkids . Being so close to Lakeside , we found everything we needed there - loved Tamarack Inn, & Glacier Perks ( coffee, homemade scones, etc.)Pebble beach, grandkids fishing off dock, kayaking, paddle boarding , tubing, etc. Took pontoon boat across lake to Bigfork for dinner one night. Needless to say, we're hoping to be back next summer!!! Doug & Genie Lang
