I just got back from a fantastic vacation at a dude ranch! It was so much more, I find it hard to put it all in one review. Picture this: The excitement of being transported back in time not only by the surroundings (pristine setting, phenomenal views, fresh, homecooked meals, dogs running freely... children laughing) but also by feeling so...

What an amazing experience we had! My husband and I, got married on the property, over Memorial Day weekend (2016). It was absolutely magical!!! I can't begin to tell you how incredible the entire staff was to us and our guests. We ended renting out almost the entire resort, except for a family celebrating their parents 29th wedding anniversary and...

We spent Memorial Day weekend at this working dude ranch in order to attend a wedding. We stayed in a cute 1BR cabin that, while not luxurious, met our needs except for the lighting, which was too dim to apply makeup. (However if we hadn't been there for a wedding, I would have happily foregone the makeup.) Prices include all...

First time visiting Montana in my life and I most likely will come back! I was here for the Spartan race. Little did I know that ever since Spartan started racing here, it's big news around here with welcome signs on the freeway, airlines, local mom & pops welcome us with open arms. This lodge is no different and so...

Had a perfect vacation at the ranch. The trail rides, the boating excursions on the lake were all beyond expectations. The cabin was a great size, and loved the manicured lawns and campfires! Feels like home but so far from home at the same time. The food was just OK, that's the only negative I can think of. The views...

If I had one word to describe Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge (FLL), I could not find one more appropriate than, “Awesome!” From beginning to end, I had the best experience. Forgive me ahead of time, as this might be a little long, not sure if there is enough space to share the truly wonderful experience I had. This was my...

I read lots of the reviews (like many) prior to visiting so I was truly skeptical. Avrill's Lodge, is an absolute must for your family bucket list. Enjoyed it so much we are planning our next trip back! The food was outstanding and the website can't even come close to highlighting the vast number of activities available. If you spend...

Just spent a wonderful week at Flathead Lake Lodge with a family group of 12 - grandparents, 3 siblings/spouses, and 5 grandchildren from 11 to 14. The lodge is beautifully run, with attentive but unobtrusive service. The equestrian program is first rate, the horses are with the ranch all season and spend the winter in nearby hayfields. The wranglers have...

We stayed in a cabin for a week with our 2 daughters in July (ages 17 & 21). The property is lovely set on a beautiful mountain lake. Whether you are relaxing by the pool, sailing, riding or doing water sports there is something for everyone. If you have young children, they can be set free which for some children...
