Our family invites you to our Ranch in Bigfork, Montana for an unforgettable, all-inclusive Montana guest ranch vacation. We’ve been hosting guests from around the world for over 70 years and we welcome you and yours to our ranch, our home, and the shores of beautiful Flathead Lake to experience the family vacation of a lifetime!
In honor of our 75th anniversary, we’re hosting “A Week of Hope” where critically ill children (and their families) will be able to experience life the way it’s meant to be—running free, soaking up Montana and creating memories that will last forever.
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.
Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge is the ultimate location for fun family vacations in Montana. We offer the widest selection of adventurous and recreational activities for one all-inclusive rate. Each day offers an abundance of activities for every age. Whether you’re interested in spending time on horseback or sailing on the lake, the days are yours and there are more than enough adventures for the whole family.
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.
