Why Candus Suppelsa chose Flathead Lake

We searched all over the state of Montana for property but when we saw the view of this home on the cover of Home Seekers magazine in 1994 we were awestruck. We have loved every minute of every season in this beautiful home while we vacationed with our two children.

What makes this house unique

The Echo Lake Retreat is very unique as it is situated on a peninsula with water (and swimming docks) on either side of the property. If you are looking for shade or sun you can find it. The view of the mountains constantly changes throughout the day which is spectacular.

We had a very relaxing time with good weather.

A very relaxing stay in a very comfortable home. Echo Lake, being a warm lake, offers a lot of activities. Since we live in Montana, we had a good idea of what to expect and we were not disappointed.

Awesome spot!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our week in this lovely location. Water was cool, but not cold. Plenty of water toys provided by owner. The docks on both sides of the little peninsula gave evening sun or shade, and morning sun or shade. One had an Eastern exposure and one western. We had various family members stray with us for a night or so and the space was adequate to do so. Thank-you Candus.

Fantastic Montana lake side resort!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous 2 week vacation we have had here with our son, (who moved here 10 years ago) and 2 of our grandchildren (Sadie, 13 and Dylan, 9). The biggest surprise of our life was 2 nights after we got here, about 9 PM, our son said he had to run a quick errand and would be back in about an hr. We couldn't imagine where he was going, and when we heard his truck pull in, our grand daughter said he had a girl with him. Next thing we know, our daughter walked in the door and shocked us totally. (He had gone to the Kalispell airport to pick her up. ) She and Doug had cooked this up as a surprise, and we were totally shocked!! So, we had our two kids and 2 of our grand children here with s for the first week and it couldn't have been more wonderful!! We have had our ski boat here for the entire time and have worn our selves out skiing, wake boarding, knee boarding and tubing. We aso loved the kayaks and canoe, and explored the lake on those.

We've had some really crazy weather while we have been here--you name it, we saw it, including hail stones one night. It made for some amazing sunsets which we enjoyed from both docks. We also had some wonderful sunny warm days, which we thoroughly enjoyed on the lake.

Our grandson loved fishing and was so proud that he caught 14 fish, which he returned to the water.

Some of the fun things we did:

1) Hiked Jewel basin to Twin Lakes

2) Hiked to Strawberry Lake 3.8 miles

3) Went to numerous locations and picked Huckleberries

4) Rode the chair lift up Big Mtn, and hiked the 3.6 "Danny O Trail" down

What a wonderful lake retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Echo Lake retreat. The house is well supplied to make your visit easy. The canoes and kayaks were a big hit with everyone in our party. Candus was easy to work with and this was one of our best vacation rental experiences.

Stunning view, beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

First off, my wife and I could not get over the view of the lake and the mountains right off the deck. It stops you in your tracks. We could have spent half our week just sitting out there staring at the changing scenery as the sun would come up over those mountains in the morning and when the setting sun would change the scenery colors at dusk. (The property also has a second dock on the other side where we sat to watch some stunning sunsets!) The lake was so wonderfully calm and peaceful for kayaking and canoeing. About the only traffic we saw was a fisherman or two. The house at Echo Lake Retreat also had all the conveniences you'd need for a great escape. A clean, comfortable place with a genuine "lake place" kind of feel to it. The owners have a lot of great information about where to eat out and where to venture. We found some amazing hikes not that far from Echo Lake Retreat on the other side of the lake. An amazing stay!
