We love family dude ranch vacations and we are kicking off our Family Dude Ranch Vacations Week with an adrenaline pumping, super exciting, get-ready-to-enter giveaway to Flathead Lake LodgeThis is one opportunity you do not want to miss.  A week at Flathead Lake Lodge in beautiful Montana is a week filled with delicious food served 3 times a day (plus an endless supply of cookies and lemonade), horseback riding through the pine forests of Montana, water skiing, wake boarding, fishing, kayaking, swimming in crystal clear Flathead Lake, and so much family-fun that you will not want to leave!

Flathead Lake Lodge Family Dude Ranch Vacations Giveaway

Our family spent one glorious week last August at Flathead Lake Lodge and came away with memories of hot pancakes after a morning horse-back ride, fishing off of a motorboat and viewing two bald eagles on the shore of Flathead Lake, taking a road trip to nearby Glacier National Park, and chatting with the friendly FLL staff as we took an evening boat cruise with the sun setting over the mountains.  We were all incredibly sad as we drove away, but were so glad we had an amazing and memorable summer vacation in Montana.

    My daughter just rode a horse for the first time and has been begging to do it again ever since! I know she’d love the Jr. Wrangler program. Together we’d probably spend plenty of time on the lake in canoes or kayaks.

  26. Pamela January 24, 2013 at 1:11 am #

    My family is in desperate need of a vacation. My husband is a veteran suffering from PTSD and my son has special needs and has never been on a vacation! I am just an overworked mother with two kids!
