A summer spent at Flathead Lake Lodge is an unforgettable experience. Perhaps one of the most special things about the lodge is the diverse group of people that you will meet while working here, as staff and guests alike come from all over the world. Over the course of the summer, our employees not only form lifelong friendships with people from all walks of life, but they also leave with knowledge and skills they may not have had the opportunity to learn anywhere else.

Careers at Flathead Lake Lodge


We welcome each guest to the ranch as if we were welcoming them to our own home. As such, we encourage all staff members to engage, dine and build relationships with the families who choose to vacation here. This is a very unique and important element to working at Flathead Lake Lodge. It truly is hospitality at its roots.

The lodge combines a fun Western atmosphere with top rated hospitality and we work as a team to provide the best vacation experience to our guests. Employees are hired for specific positions; however, everyone is expected to help out in all areas as needed. Nightly events such as barn dance, steak fry and staff vs. guest volleyball are set up for both guests and staff to enjoy together.

The Employee Experience

When you become part of our staff at Flathead Lake Lodge—whether you’re summer staff or a full-time employee—you become part of our lodge family. Each year, we welcome staff and guests from across the country and around the world to spend time on our 2,000-acre property. Along the way, you’re guaranteed to form strong friendships and bonds right here at the ranch. Plus, after a summer spent working on the shores of Flathead Lake, you’ll leave with skills and experiences that you may not have had elsewhere.

Room and Board

The ranch provides onsite room and board for all employees at a nominal monthly fee, which includes housing and three meals a day. Employee housing is shared with other employees in a dormitory-style setting. No pets allowed.

Getting Here and Getting Around

Employees are encouraged to bring their own vehicle as we have parking available. For those of you who don’t, Flathead Lake Lodge does provide a ranch vehicle for local trips.

Amtrak is also an easy way to get to the ranch. The Amtrak Station in Whitefish, Montana is only 45 minutes from the lodge and shuttle service is provided.

Glacier International Airport (FCA) is 35 miles from the ranch. Transportation for incoming and outgoing employees is provided.

For Fun

During time off, employees enjoy many of the same activities as our guests. Horseback riding, waterskiing, wakeboarding, stand up paddleboarding, sailing, fishing, hiking, tennis and volleyball are all activities available to our staff. Many employees will explore the surrounding area on their time off by visiting Glacier National Park, whitewater rafting, hiking and spending time in the surrounding towns of Bigfork, Kalispell and Whitefish.
