About Owner/manager

Our parents built this home because of the peaceful beauty that emanates from the lake and throughout the country side. We lived in NY and this was the perfect escape and family getaway. We put away the remote controls, dusted off our hiking boots and spent entire days outdoors appreciating nature and spending time with family. Our mother was an award winning architectural designer and this home was featured in log home magazines in 1994. Our family spent 3 months out of the year living in this home, and once our parents retired, more or less, they spent half the year here.

My brother and I now have this treasure and we are excited to share it with you and hear your stories.

Owner/manager purchased this house in 1993

Why Owner/manager chose Flathead Lake

We chose this location because of its lakefront land, amazing sunsets, and proximity to ski mountains and Glacier National Park. We also fell in love with the small mountain charm of Bigfork town with its famous artists and delicious restaurants.

Our week in August celebrating our 60th wedding anniversary with our family members was just awesome; beautiful lake home with outstanding décor, art work, etc. and of course such a comfortable warm atmosphere. We have such treasured memories and a memorable time. We were so fortunate to have found such a great place for the occasion and highly recommended it to those planning to visit the Flathead area

Elegant yet comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our July 2016 week at the Lorang property was an amazing experience. Our family members felt so comfortable there among the exquisite details that made this residence unique. The workmanship, layout and impressive overall log design (decks, landscaping, boat dock, and Windows) all were spectacular features in a gorgeous Montana lake setting. However, many of our group felt nothing compared to the Native American art and decor that enriched the overall design. As you can tell, we had a wonderful wedding anniversary celebration with family that will long be remembered as our favorite experience in Montana! We would also like to acknowledge the personal communication with owners and managers, was, indeed remarkable. To anyone considering this property experience, do not hesitate..the Texas Group

Memories of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered for a week to celebrate our parents' 60th anniversary . . . the setting directly on the Lake was fantastic! Beautiful mountain lodge style home offered stunning water views from every room, along with the best dining room table able to seat 14! The property is ideal for swimming, boating, lounging/talking on the large deck, preparing meals, enjoying games of pool, indoor sauna, TV (and movies), board games, and on and on. We visited Bigfork (the kids enjoyed a production of "Shrek: the Musical" at the Big Fork Summer Play House), Lakeside, and Polson . . . each community was unique and offered lots to do. Management is very helpful and helped to make everything smooth. The property was gorgeous and provided our family the perfect setting for a remarkable experience!

Three generations of family

  • 5 of 5

We checked in 8-4-2014 and out 8-9-2014 after having 5 days of perfect temperatures and weather. Most went swimming. We enjoyed the sauna. Saw a good production of "West Side Story" at Big Fork Play House. Good prices, beer and food across Flathead Lake at Tamarack Brewery in Lake Side. We _BQ'd on the deck with propane. The home was well supplied with dishes, silverware, garbage bags, etc.

We stayed in touch with family and friends using the Wi Fi. Lots of TV channels.

Pool tournaments happened often among family members.

I could go on about this lovely home, but suffice it to say we loved the home and had a fun time.

Wonderful, Serene Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great location on the beautiful Flathead Lake! Easy access for swimming and boating! Close to the artistic community of Big Fork and nearby Glacier Park. Woods Bay is also lively with the restaurants, clubs and boating activities. Lots to do, whether you want to relax or be active! The beds are comfortable, accommodations for anything you need or desire! Management was easy to work with - the community is friendly and relaxed!

Your own private 5 star home by the lake

  • 5 of 5

For us this was our first trip to Montana. And boy! We are spoiled after renting this house. First, the the drive from the airport is simple and we had no problem finding the house. From the moment we entered the house, we knew this vacation was going to be unique. The house is simply a private five star hotel by the lake. And when I say by the lake, I mean you have your own little piece of heaven all to yourself. Just open the beautiful doors to the backyard and walk ten steps to your own dock and jump into the water! The house was immaculately clean and the landscapes are so beautiful. A mean, a huge pine tree welcomes everyone at the main entrance! Super country sweet! Also, we all had our own private rooms and bathrooms, since the house is huge. The local supermarket is 15 minutes away, as well as good restaurants, pharmacy, and the marina. So, there was never a dull moment and you always have easy access to all, including Glazier Park which is like 30 minutes away. But, honestly, just sitting at the dock or on one of the balconies, with a glass of wine at hand, that was simply enough for us. The view is simply unbelievable. Which was great, because some in the group preferred a mellow afternoon while others went hiking. So, there is something for everyone to enjoy. We are already planning our next trip to Montana all because of this house. Are we are planning on making it a yearly trip. Total privacy, your own piece of the lake, beautiful setting and five star accommodations.
