For the last 75 years, our family has been welcoming guests to our ranch in Bigfork, Montana, to experience an unforgettable, all-inclusive Montana ranch vacation. We’d love to invite you and your family to make memories and explore this place we call home.
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 a place unlike any other. When it comes to family vacations, adult getaways, corporate retreats and destination weddings, our Montana ranch has a wide selection of activities—from adventure to recreation and relaxation—and we have the largest selection of activities for one all-inclusive rate. During a stay at the lodge, each day offers a variety of options to choose from, including everything from horseback trail rides to sailing on historic sailboats on Flathead Lake and mountain biking to fly-casting lessons, the opportunity for adventure is endless.
Our grandfather, Les Averill, started Flathead Lake Lodge in 1945. Three generations later, we’re proud to carry on his legacy—as well as the legacy of our father Doug Averill—doing what we love in the place we love most. Today, we welcome guests to Montana and introduce them to the genuine Western lifestyle that’s been found here on the shores of Flathead Lake for the last 75 years. Once you stay at Flathead Lake Lodge, you become part of our family, and that’s a mantra we live by.
