Reading some of the more negative reviews, I have no idea where they could be coming from. My family and I have been staying at The Lodge every summer for eleven years. I am currently sixteen years old and my trips to Flathead Lake Lodge have been the basis for almost every school project, speech or essay I have ever done. This is because my vacations have been the highlight of my childhood years. Every aspect of the lodge exceeds expectations. I have made lifelong friends and memories because of my experiences here. With activities such as bike riding, hiking, fishing, water skiing, wake boarding, swimming in both the pool and lake, jumping off the dock dubbed the "the Tower", sports such as basketball, soccer, and volleyball, and of course horseback riding, there is a never dull moment at the Lodge. The food is exceptional for the environment,catering to both the little kids and sophisticated adults. The staff and service make all guests feel like they are returning visitors. A charming small town is located right next to the ranch, providing restaurants, shopping, and more night time activities for adults. The lodging is always clean, well-kept and comfortable. For those concerned, horseback rides are available for riders of all levels. Weekly activities include a camp fire sing along, roping demostrations, barn dances and rodeos. Though expensive, I can not imagine a trip more worth the money.
