What Makes Us Different?

Vintage Stays.
Historic Memories.

Here at Flathead Lake Lodge, we want the memories you make here to last a lifetime. And while we’ve been rated as one of the best family vacation spots in America and named as a top guest ranch, the greatest tribute of all is that more than half of our guests return to the ranch every year. Many of our guests grew up coming here with their parents and now bring their own children and grandchildren to experience our Montana ranch just like they did. Plus, a stay at Flathead Lake Lodge is all-inclusive, including accommodations, three meals each day, lots of snacks, beverages (kid-friendly and alcoholic drinks) and on-site activities.
