“Absolute pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2011

During a trip to scout out locations to move our business, we had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Lakeside Motel & Resort.
John and Julie run a top notch establishment with all the creature comforts in beautiful outback of Northwest Montana.
It was so nice to have a clean, comfortable room, with high-speed internet, and all the creature comforts of an expensive resort, at a very reasonable price.
Their courteous staff, and customer focused attention was a welcomed surprise after a long road trip.
If you want to a good night’s rest, beautiful view, friendly service at a good price, this is the place to stay.

My wife and I wanted to get away from everything and just relax and I don't think we have ever slept better! The location had amazing views and was very clean! We couldn't believe out there that we were able to connect our laptop and stay connected so fast to loved ones to update our vacation pics! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the cabin with the jacuzzi suite was perfect! We will vacation again soon!

Coming off a 3 year tour in the Middle East and we found heaven at the Lakeside Motel and Resort in Trout Creek, Montana. Lovely, country-style decorated cabins, and amenities that made it possible for us to relax and enjoy. Got pics of whitetaile deer, heard a bear on the mountain outside our cabin, and watched wild turkeys travel and roost in the trees. This is truly Big Sky Country! Food is wonderful in Trout Creek....huckleberry pancakes and thick ham slices made breakfast a real treat. I would heartily recommend a stay at the Lakeside for those who want a real vacation. I definitely plan on coming back again.

My daughter was married July 17, 2010 in Thompson Falls, MT and we held the reception at the Lakeside Motel and Resort in Trout Creek, 20 miles west on Hwy 200. This place is a gem in Western Montana sitting on the shore of the Noxon Reservoir of the Clark Fork River. We planned for a year in advance and filled the motel with our guests that came from as far away as New Zealand and North Carolina. Everyone agreed that the accommodations and reception venue could not have been more ideal for our occasion.

The Lakeside has everything you need for a small to midsize event. The "meeting room" seated 150 comfortably inside for dinner and the generous grounds offered lots of room for enjoying the beautiful views and Montana evening with plenty of outside seating. They have a well equipped kitchen for cooking & catering and John, the owner, is an expert at setting up for your event. There is a great covered patio area outside where we set up the DJ and danced. Our pictures featured a backdrop of the mountains, water and a fantastic Montana sunset.

Speaking of the owners, John and Julie are very particular and maintain their facility impeccably. We also found them to be very customer service oriented, flexible and willing to work with us on a number of fronts. The motel offers a range of accommodations from standard motel rooms to cabins with multiple bedrooms and jacuzzis. They have remodeled all the rooms and they are exquisitely clean, comfortable and cozy. As a guest you have direct access to the Noxon Reservoir with over 20 miles of boating, fishing and water sports. Just imagine any recreational opportunity you might seek in the mountains of Western Montana and it is available. We have a home in Trout Creek, but if not I would eagerly visit the resort as a guest.

I am a life long Montana resident and I know there are resorts in the region that have similar amenities, some more exclusive, certainly more pricey. Whether you are looking to Montana for a family vacation, a romantic getaway or a location for a corporate retreat or family event, you could not do better than the Lakeside Motel and Resort.

I've visited Trout Creek several times, but this was my first stay at the Lakeside Resort and Motel. Two friends and I rented a cabin and were very impressed by the quality and cleanliness of our lodging. Everything was well maintained, both inside and out, and the staff and owners were great. The view from our cabin was breathtaking, and the falling snow made things even more beautiful.

I give them the highest possible recommendation and look forward to staying with them in the future.

Me and my husband, heard about the Clark Fork River valley, that is the most beautiful place.... and it is! We flu into Spokane from Long Island NY, rented a car than we took the indescribable drive near Coeur d'Alene lake, to Trout Creek, everyone recommended the Lakeside Motel being clean and having great service and it really was. After the first trip, we went back 3 more times because we loved it. Each time , we took another rout, near Lake Pend Oreille, or thru Thompson Pass.
Everyday we drove somewhere, to visit the area, Troy, Flathead Lake, and in the evening it was very pleasant to come back ( like home) in a clean, quiet Lakeside Motel.
We are always dreaming about going back!
Thanks John and Julie!

We stayed at Lakeside Resort for a family reunion. The scenery was absolutely beautiful! The whole family was well taken care of and things were handled in a most proficient and timely manner. The amenities offered were perfect for the reunion and everyone couldn't stop commenting on how wonderful everything was. There is a small grocery store right across the street that sold pretty much any necessity. I dreaded having to leave.
