Averill's Flathead Lake Lodge


  • Glacier
  • Resort Ranch
Flathead Lake Lodge is a historic third generation family operated Guest Ranch located in the mountains of Northwest Montana and directly on the shores of Flathead Lake. The Lodge offers the ultimate family vacation with unlimited horse & water recreation and is located only 35 miles from Glacier National Park. At the Lodge your family will enjoy endless recreational activities, a rustic ranch atmosphere, and unmatched hospitality by the Averill family and staff.

Recreation includes a complete horse program highlighted by individual lessons, rodeo events, breakfast and lunch rides, a private elk preserve and more than 2,000 pristine acres for daily trail rides. In addition to the riding programs, Flathead Lake Lodge offers unmatched water activities on Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi and one of the cleanest lakes in the world. Spend the afternoon sailing your own boat or crewing on one of the two 51' Q Class racing sloops, water skiing or wake boarding, and enjoying the lakeside heated pool.

Meals are served family style in our historic Main Lodge and include fine cuts of meat, fresh vegetables and homemade breads and desserts. Our kitchen is run more like a home, check out what's for dinner, sample warm cookies as they come out of the oven, or get a recipe. Our kitchen staff can accommodate any dietary need you might have.

In addition to the horse and water programs guests enjoy world-class fly fishing expeditions on the nearby Swan River, hiking in the Jewel Basin Primitive Area, biking trips, whitewater rafting, and more. Nightly activities are a highlight and include a mountain cookout, family rodeo events, a barn dance, campfires, and a kid's tepee overnight to name a few.

Flathead Lake Lodge is the ultimate family vacation...Montana style.
