What Makes Us Different?

Vintage Stays.
Historic Memories.

Located on the largest fresh water lake in the west, with Glacier National Park just minutes away, Flathead Lake Lodge is steeped in Western lifestyle, ranching, and a splash of lake life. The finest tribute of all, however is that well over half our guests return to the ranch each year.

Authentic Hospitality

Our Grandfather started the Ranch in 1945. Three generations later we’re proud to welcome guests looking to experience a genuine western lifestyle. We often joke we’re like a big ‘family camp’, priding ourselves on a special way of life — an informal approach that emphasizes friendship and warm hospitality no matter what. Many families have made us their summer tradition, coming back generation after generation, sharing their childhood summers at the ranch with their kids.
