We can't wait for you to return! Fall is a wonderful time to visit Bigfork and the Wild Mile is stunning with the changing of the leaves. I am glad everything worked out so nicely on your trip and I hope the rest of your journey was just as wonderful.

The entire condo (#105) had been redone with new appliances, flooring, etc. and beautiful modern decor. I also loved the washer and dryer in our condo which makes it convenient for our...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Marina Cay Resort, located on Flathead Lake's Bigfork Bay, is a year-round resort with much to offer our guests beyond the natural beauty and adventure of Northwest Montana. Welcoming everyone from individual travelers to groups and families, we offer a variety of accommodations from standard Hotel-style Rooms and Suites to well-equipped 1 to 3 Bedroom Condominium Units. All guests of the Resort have access to our outdoor pools and hot tubs, BBQ and picnic areas, Marina with watercraft rental and gasoline services, Casino, Lounge and food and beverage outlets. In the summer, make sure to stop by the waterside Tiki Bar featuring Polynesian inspired food and all your favorite tropical drinks. Fall and winter mean sitting fireside in the Lounge and watching your favorite team. Whatever your mood, or attire, the Marina Cay has an option for you! Being located on Flathead Lake offers Marina Cay Resort guests the ultimate scenic summer playground with activities such as boating, water skiing and fishing right within reach. But many other year round activities can also be found in nearby Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall and Swan Range Wilderness Areas, Blacktail Mountain and Whitefish Mountain. These areas of Northwest Montana are not only famous for their summer activities such as hiking, biking and river rafting, but also for excellent snowshoeing, snowmobiling and ice fishing during the winter months. Visiting us without a car? Not a problem. A short walk from Marina Cay is the village of Bigfork, a picturesque and charming place chosen as "One of the 50 Great Towns of the West" and designated as "One of the 100 Best Small Art Towns of the Nation." World class art galleries, fine restaurants, live theatre and unique shops can all be found within a quaint Western setting just outside the Resort entrance.
