Moose Lodge is a great place for a family reunion. I love the out buildings lots of privacy. Nice decor and new appliances reminds me of my house with all the stainless steel appliances.
We had five couples, lot the stocked kitchen with new cookware, and hardwood floors.
The big plus is the large dock we had two boats one 24 footer and one 21’ nice to have a large two slip boat dock with lots of room to hang out. The lights and power in the dock are a big plus.
When we were looking around places to rent on Flathead we saw lots of homes that had no parking or only room for one or two cars. We had four automobiles and parking was no problem.
Our group loved picking fresh wild raspberries every morning and there’s a cherry tree on the property as well we were lucky to be able to pick wild Flathead lake cherries for breakfast
We had a few golfers in the group and they played several courses in the area as close as 20 minutes away in at Polson Country Club. Their favorite was Eagle Bend in Bigfork 30 minutes away.
We will be back for sure for a stay at Moose Lodge
Spending time on the gulf coast in Florida, heading Northwest to Montana is a great vacation change.
If you are not climbing Everest, and you like to golf, hike and fly fish, you need to check out the place we found at Flathead Lake. Last summer we vacationed at Flathead Lake with a group of friends; which was amazing at the “Moose Lodge”, which we abbreviated and called the "ML". When you are their, you will find out why it is called the "Moose Lodge" and the wildlife will also amaze you. The "ML" worked great with our large group; lots of room with a cozy feeling.
With our group from different locations, parking was not an issue for our four cars. If you check out other properties, you will understand why the "ML" works for a large group, as other places around the lake had one room and parking two or more cars could be an issue.
You have to experience the dock with it large beams; the people who built it knew what they were doing. When you walk on the dock you are officially on Flathead Lake, and you understand what clear lake water is all about. With the sun shinning, you can see your fishing lure at quite a depth. The dock is a gathering place as well, with room for friends boats as well as other people who joined us. At night you can sit back on the dock and watch the stars, with water all around you.
"ML" was our “Base Camp” aka "BC" with all of the adventures:
Jack Nicklaus designed the championship Eagle Bend Golf Course, which has views of Flathead Lake.
The fishing guide from Big Fork Montana knew where to catch the Mackinaw, "Lake Trout", as you will hear the locals call them.
Fly fishing and hiking were had at nearby Glacier National Park. Next time we are going to ride motorcycles through the mountain canyons on my way to "ML", and ship the golf clubs.
If you want a great place to vacation, at a beautiful place in the world, stay at the "Moose Lodge" you can call it "ML" if you want.
No need to climb everest, "Base Camp" is waiting.
Ahhhhh…so peaceful and the view is absolutely magnificent!! As I look at the pictures from this website, they take me right back to Moose Lodge. 6 adult friends made the trip from North Carolina to experience Montana and we could not have picked a better place to stay! There is something so special about the simplicity of a cabin and getting back to the basics. My husband and I stayed in the guest cabin which was very comfortable. We cooked fantastic meals in the very well stocked kitchen and in the evening we pulled our chairs out to the end of the dock with a glass of wine to enjoy the breathtaking sunset and then anticipate the star filled skies. Mornings we rose as early as possible to catch the unbelievable sunrise with a cup of coffee and a blanket. Writing this makes me smile and homesick to go back!!
clean; well-maintained; owner was very easy to work with; would recommend to anyone who appreciates beauty and simplicity

I love Montana. One of the best places to enjoy MT is Flathead Lake and in particular the Moose Lodge on Flathead Lake.
As soon as I drive off of Old Highway 93 and down into the tree covered property of the Moose Lodge, I’m excited to be in one
of the most beautiful and relaxing places on earth. I love it here. The main log cabin is rustic and relaxing. The view out the picture
window is worth a million dollars. It’s quiet and peaceful and quaint and cozy and comfortable. The out buildings allow for additional guests,
for a total of 14. Here you have the opportunity to really get to know family and friends. The dock is a great gathering spot for hanging out,
fishing, swimming or docking boats should you so choose. The dock is also great for happy hour. The view you have from the Moose Lodge never gets old.
The whole experience of the Moose Lodge is to enjoy life and your family and friends. It’s like home, but home in the country away from all the
hustle and bustle the life has. When it’s time to return to reality I immediately think about my return trip to my heaven on earth location.

We've been to Moose Lodge on four different vacations. First time was a family reunion for two weeks - lots of room for four families - kids and adults loved the "camp" atmosphere. Second time was an intro to Montana for our friends from North Carolina. We had such a good time that we came back three years later - ,two families. Fourth time another intro to Montana for different friends from North Carolina - three couples. Every time was different and fun. We loved the simplicity and easy access to everything. Each time was spent differently from white water rafting, seeing plays in Big Fork, riding gondola and hiking in Whitefish to visiting Glacier, but always returning to great meals and fireside fun at Moose Lodge. Some of our favorite memories!
We had a great time at Moose Lodge - three couples. We flew into Missoula for a UM football game then drove up to Flathead Lake. We spent many nights on the dock or gathered around the fire watching the stunning views at sunset while sipping cocktails! So Peaceful!! We also enjoyed walking down to the Idlespur and meeting the locals. We used the cabin as our base camp while visiting Whitefish, Bigfork, and Glacier. Plenty of room for all and a great Montana atmosphere - loved it.
