About Buddy Braach

I was born and raised in Montana and purchased my home in 2008 for visits in the summer. I fell in love with the Lakeside area and wanted to have a piece of it for years to come. I encourage feedback from all my guests as I am always looking for ways to enhance the property and the vacation experience.

to me

Hi Buddy

Sorry for the late thank you note ... has been a busy weekend since we arrived home. We had a wonderful time in Lakeside, it was so peaceful and quiet. As a small town girl from South Africa, I enjoyed the mountains, trees and the stars at night. We were so impressed with the friendliness of the Montana people. The dogs had fun too ... went for a swim every day. We almost didn't want to come back to Calgary!

Hopefully we will be able to visit again next year.

Clean, well stocked, close to lake access

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house to stay in while visiting Lakeside. Within walking distance of lake and amenities in town. House was clean and tidy. House could use some general maintenance. Blind shades were falling off, closet door in hallway was off hinges, missing drawer face in kitchen. The owner provided excellent customer service. We would definitely stay again.

Nice property, Buddy was great to work with!

  • 4 of 5

The location allowed us easy access for hiking and just under an hour from Glacier National Park. We were pleased overall as the place suited our needs, the owner was great to work with. The place was clean when we arrived and well stocked with the essentials. Overall the property could use a little TLC.

Definitely the perfect location and the area is beautiful! The house was cute, clean, cozy and comfortable. We had everything we needed. Especially liked hanging out on the wrap-around deck at night. Hope to stay there again.

S wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I; 4 grandkids and one mother stayed at the Lakehouse. The house was well stocked, clean and very nice. We had plenty of sleeping room and bathrooms. The deck was lovely and the grill worked fine. The location of this property is right too and the price was fare. We stayed for a week and was able to cook and swim and play all within a short distance. Thanks to Buddy, the owner for being so accommodating and kind..

LOVED staying at Buddy's house. Had everything we needed for the week. Very clean (from someone who needs places to be meticulously clean :)). Didn't quite understand how to work the AC unit, but I'm sure that Buddy would have answered immediately if it were a huge issue. He replied to any of our questions quickly. Would definitely stay here again!
