We traveled to the Lodge last week with very few expectations and absolutely fell in love with this place. It is like going to sumer camp if summer camp were gorgeous, clean, filled with fun, good food and remarkable staff . The Lodge is beautiful and cozy and we loved gathering for meals, relaxing by the fire and listening to music. Our little cabin had lovely lake views, a relaxing porch to relax and a spacious lofted bedroom with comfortable bed. The bell rings three times a day to invite you to the lodge for delicious meals from scratch. The homemade bread, pastry and deserts are impossible to pass. Happy Hour each day features excellent music from a talented couple. My husband and I rode horses, hiked trails, learned to paint, did yoga, took boatrides, kayaked, had fly fishing lessons, shot clay pigeons, spotted elk, rode a firetruck to a steak fry, jumped off the tower into the lake, sang by the campfire under the Milky Way, took naps, laughed and remembered what joy it is to be in nature. We were both sad to leave. What a beautiful experience. What heightens the experience are the kind, hard working, smart, talented staff that work here. They love what they do and where they work and it is contagious. We learned much from them and felt so welcome. This is not an inexpensive trip, but it is worth it. Really, a once in a lifetime experience. Honestly, we never stopped smiling.

This place is absolutely amazing! My husband and daughter love to ride horses and our daughter did the teen ride almost everyday. The breakfast ride was a highlight of our vacation. The rest of our family was able catch a ride in a vehicle to the top of the mountain to join the horse riders so we could all enjoy breakfast together. I participated in the guided hikes every day, while my son who loves mountain biking, was able to ride either the intermediate or the advanced trail at least once a day (sometimes twice). Our other son enjoyed fishing and the sporting clays range. We all enjoyed the outdoor laser tag adventure. We definitely needed all this activity to counteract the extra calories from the amazing food. The ultimate family vacation - everyone is able to pick their favorite activities but you are still together for all meals and evening activities.

I was a member of a (52) person social group who spent 4 nights at this location in September, 2019. We had an incredible experience! From horseback trail rides, hikes, elk preserve tours to boat cruises on the lake, country line dancing, cook outs and mouse races, there was something for every interest and everything is included. Food was great too. Breakfast was buffet style and had minor changes daily to avoid boredom. Lunch was also buffet style & dinner was plated. Rooms are either in stand-alone cabins or "hotel" style in one of two lodge buildings. My lodge room was ranch rustic...pine wood, comfortable bed, shower/no tub. Housekeeping was provided daily and the laundry facility is free with soap included. The grounds were immaculate and the setting was beautiful! At the end of the trip the overall group consensus was "let's come back again!"

My wife and I, on recommendation from a colleague, stayed here for 4 days after several days in Whitefish/Glacier. We had an excellent time! Nice, comfortable cabin feet away from the main lodge, a plethora of activities and some of the nicest staff we have ever encountered. The food was outstanding but the best thing was that you felt like you just became part of the family for a while. We enjoyed horseback riding, elk watching, trap shooting, massages and some very welcome downtime! Special call out to some special people at Averill's: Allie (sp) in the office, Rick the shooting instructor, Mykaela, Zeb and John from GT (all wranglers), Martin (food & great beverages!) and Scott the boat captain. It is hard to get a reservation here but it is well worth it! We will definitely be going back! Montana is a magical place but these folks made it even better.

We were busy every day, and finished each day exhausted, happy and with full bellies. Every interaction with the staff, from the wranglers, the arts/crafts room, the tour guides (hikes and bikes), the front desk, the kitchen staff and the cleaners, was incredible. They make a real effort to get to know your family over the course of the week. Much respect and appreciation to Chase and also to Doug, who spent the better portion of the week giving my in-laws a rundown on the history of the ranch, and also letting my daughter ride with him during the steer roping demonstration.
