For the second year in a row, we’re welcoming the Ladies AllRide Mountain Bike Retreat to Flathead Lake Lodge. Slated for October 3 – 7, 2022, this women’s-only retreat combines the best of both riding worlds – horseback trail rides and mountain biking – on our 2,000 acres. A five-day, four-night retreat, it’s designed to give attendees professional mountain bike skills instruction and plenty of time to hit the ranch’s miles of expertly-designed trails.

Wondering what to expect? Here’s a peek at the retreat.

Mountain bike at Flathead Lake Lodge

Off the bikes, guests can participate in other activities offered at the ranch, including morning yoga, guided hikes, beach campfires, kayaking on Flathead Lake and tours of our on-ranch elk preserve. Chef Rob also makes sure to serve up plenty of made-from-scratch meals to keep attendees fueled and satisfied, while also give them opportunities to taste the many flavors of local Montana purveyors.

All guests stay on the ranch in Flathead Lake Lodge’s accommodations, including lodge rooms and cabins.

See you on the trails,


We’ve always been big believers that people need to get away, have time to decompress and soak up moments with the ones they love most. And while family vacations with kids are fantastic, we also know that sometimes grown-ups need getaways that don’t involve the kids.

Meet our 2022 adults-only Montana Adventure package.

This package is available twice this fall: from September 2 – 7, 2022, and September 12 – 15, 2022. 

The first package – which takes place over Labor Day – is longer than our previous adults-only getaways, which gives guests even more time to experience all we have to offer at Flathead Lake Lodge. A five-night package, it’s all-inclusive and includes on-property activities like horseback riding, touring the elk preserve, mountain biking on our trails, taking a morning dip in our lakeside pool and heading out to play on the waters of Flathead Lake.

The second package is a tad shorter at three nights and four days, while still giving guests the chance to soak up fall in Montana.

If you’ve stayed with us before, you’ve also tasted the culinary offerings of Chef Rob. And while he whips up great meals all summer long, for our adults-only packages he creates mouth-watering multi-course tasting menus with wine pairings. 

If you’re interested in reserving space in our 2022 adults-only getaways, get in touch with us here or call us at 406-837-4391.

Until next time,

If there are two things we know to be true at Flathead Lake Lodge, it’s that fall in northwest Montana is spectacular and adults deserve vacations, too. But not just any vacation. We’re talking about the types of getaways that allow you to relax, lounge, adventure, dine on incredible food and have fun.

As such, we’ve created FOUR GETAWAYS that are just for the grown-ups this September.

One of the elements we’re most excited about for these fall packages is what Chef Rob has planned for the culinary offerings.

Chef Rob has been working on food and wine pairings and tasting menus…he let us have a peek and our mouths start watering when we read what he has up his food-loving sleeve.

A few pairings of note from the Montana Royalty Tasting Menu: Oysters & Bubbly (oyster, trout roe, lemon – sparkling wine), Beets, Milk & Honey (beet, apple, chevre, honey – Verdejo) King Trumpet “Duxelle” (King trumpet mushroom, shallot, fine herbs, pine nut, raising – Sauternes), Montana Short Rib (elk, carrot, onion, potato, huckleberry – Rhone Red) and S’more of What? (graham cracker, marshmallow, chocolate – Pedro Ximenez).

Chef Rob brings his 12+ years of cooking professionally, with a focus on French technique to the lodge and our adults-only getaways.

Until next time,


While you may have seen a mention of some of the new things we’re lassoing up here at Flathead Lake Lodge, we wanted to come right out and tell you about our newest endeavor: our adults-only fall packages.

Making their debut for the first time ever, we’re pretty pleased to be offering three distinct experiences for guests at Flathead Lake Lodge. And while we could ramble on and on about why we did it, what we’re most excited about and more, instead we’re gonna skip the small talk and introduce you to the latest additions to the lodge.

Montana Adventure in the Crown of the Continent: September 1 – 5, 2019

This package is well-suited for travelers looking for an adventure that combines Flathead Lake, Glacier National Park, fall colors, horseback rides and the ranch’s bison herd on the Blackfeet Nation. This package, truth be told, is one of the ones we’ve been looking forward to offering for quite a while as it beautifully blends some of the best natural wonders in the place we call home. Additional package highlights: boat cruises, campfires with live music, touring the elk preserve, sailing on Flathead Lake and driving the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park.

Relax and Restore in Montana’s Wide-open Spaces: September 12 – 15, 2019

If you’ve ever been to Flathead Lake Lodge, chances are you’ve felt the spirit of restorative wonder that’s found here in Montana. This package takes that feeling a step further by transforming our 2,000 acres into a place that allows you to unwind, relax and recharge your spirit. Retreat highlights: onsite massages, golf, yoga, horseback trail rides, apple pressing and guided walks.

Unplug and Reconnect: Retreat to Montana: September 25 – 29, 2019

While you can be connected while you’re here in Western Montana, this package encourages you to unplug and soak up the vibrant colors of autumn on the shore of the largest freshwater lake in the West. This all-inclusive package features OULA, a Montana-born dance workout, quiet trail rides and plenty of opportunities to learn how to feed your body, mind and soul. Basically, we want to leave you better than we found you. Wellness retreat highlights: sunset restorative fitness classes, trail runs, horseback riding and a mountain meadow steak fry.

And with that, you’ve met our three newest offerings at the lodge. We hope you love them as much as we loved creating them and that you find just what you’re looking for when you visit Montana, Bigfork and Flathead Lake Lodge.
