What Makes Us Different?

Vintage Stays.
Historic Memories.

We’ve been rated in the top 2% best family vacations spots in America. In Montana, our lodge is the highest rated hospitality facility by the Mobile Travel Guide. The finest tribute of all, however, is that well over half of our guests return to the ranch each year. Many who return are second-generation guests who want their children and grandchildren to experience Flathead Lake Lodge as they did when they were young.

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.
