This holiday season instead of getting your family more electronics or toys treat them to a family vacation next summer. It is the perfect gift to bring your family together and put down the distractions and spend some quality time together. With a ton of amenities at our Montana Dude Ranch, there will be something for everyone on your summer trip. It truly will be the ideal present for everyone.


Enjoy endless recreation at our Montana Dude Ranch. If one kid loves the water let them jump in and enjoy all the water sports such as sailing, stand-up paddle boarding, and kayaking. If another child loves sports set them loose and let them play basketball, volleyball, tennis, and so much more. During the summer there are friendly and trusted counselors to help guide your children and offer activities to entertain children of all ages, so you can take a moment for yourself and relax and enjoy your vacation too.


During your trip, you will be able to explore nature and spend your time outdoors. It can be hard in the summertime with sports and activities to make sure that you spend some quality time outdoors. At Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge we embrace the outdoors. Surrounded by Flathead Lake you will have endless water activities, but you can also explore the surrounding forests. Enjoy our 2,000-acre private ranch on horseback exploring mountain wilderness, lake views, and our secluded elk preserve. Our riding program allows you to choose how much or how little you would like to ride during your week at the Lodge.
