Great location for mtn and lake views, lake access and close to amazing hikes and cool towns.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to relax on the large deck overlooking the lake and long range mountain views including Glacier peaks, lake access for swimming, canoeing and kayaking, close to Glacier and other amazing hikes, and a hottub to soothe muscles after those long hikes. Our kids had fun with the lake activities, tether ball, and pool table. Kitchen well equipped. Owners were very helpful and friendly. Over-all a super vacation spot!

Great time had by all

  • 4 of 5

The lake was definitely the star of our stay in this home. We enjoyed the canoe, kayaks and water trampoline immensely. We also enjoyed the deer wandering by, the ample seating, and well appointed kitchen. It got a little toasty at times upstairs, but the downstairs remained cool. A nearby transformer burst one morning, which caused the house to lose power, and the owners were helpful and responsive even though it wasn't their fault. The home is in a great location. Private and quiet, but close to lots to do. I highly recommend a trail ride at nearby Artemis Acres. We would definitely stay here again.

Big beautiful home with ample hiking opportunities. Beautiful lake.

  • 4 of 5

Fun family vacation. We enjoyed the birds. Had deer come to front yard. Well stocked kitchen. Very quiet and peaceful. We were disappointed that there was such a long steep hike to/from lake. Our son was impressed with deco and art throughout the house. We enjoyed friendly neighbor dog.

An EXCELLENT vacation home choice.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the Dream Home a DVD of the Glacier Park was playing, along with appropriate music, fragrant air and appropriate lighting. Cathy, our wonderful host, called us shortly after arrival to ask if everything was in order and to our satisfaction. We also heard from her several times during our stay to offer any assistance or local information. Barb and I stayed for four wonderful weeks. Family and friends came and went during that time, and our experiences included visits to the park, days of hiking, kayaking, hot tub, Bison Range, water trampoline, fishing, exploring in all directions from Glacier to the National Bison Range. All that, in addition to being with the people we care for the most.

This was all made possible thanks to Cathy and Earl, our wonderful hosts.
