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.

    Wow…my son is obsessed with horses!!! He would love the opportunity for us to take him hee! Looks totally amazing-thanks for the chance!

  2. chris g

    man, that place sounds like a ton of fun for the kids and adults. i think besides the horseback riding my kids would love the fishing and laser tag.

  3. Ally

    Looks beautiful and full of fun activities. I know my kids would love all the water sports, but especially the canoe and sailing activities.

  4. slb

    my husband has traveled to this area for work and told us how awesome it is. would love to see it for myself with the kids too! 🙂

  5. Leahna Loomis

    My family would love the fly fishing!!!! This would be an amazing vacation for our family!
    Keeping my fingers crossed 🙂

  6. Natalie S

    Wow – so cool! Lots of fun activities to choose from! My boys would LOVE this! The half day hay rides with meals sounds awesome and of course fishing!

  7. Holly

    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.

  8. 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!

  9. laura

    what little girl wouldn’t love to spend her days on horseback?? i know my daughter would love it! we also love to canoe, and really, just relax and breathe in the beauty of the places we go.

  10. Stephanie Sheaffer

    Tennis! Arts & Crafts! Swimming! I want to try it all.

    My husband is an outdoorsman through and through so this place would be a dream for him too…and our three young daughters would undoubtedly have the time of their lives.

  11. Tricia Andrews

    The kids overnight camp (and their arts and crafts program) would be top of the list for our 8 year old!

  12. Allie L.

    It would be great to do some of the water sports!! I would love to canoe!! Our family would have a blast here!!

  13. Krystal

    Okay, this place is amazing. I just checked out their website, I didn’t even know something like this existed! We would love the wakeboarding, mountain biking, everything really. This place is a great fit for our lifestyle!!

  14. Sunshine Nana

    Fantastic opportunity! Would love relaxing at water’s edge, seeing the “big Sky”, and all the water sports of this beautiful ranch. To ride a horse again would be a real treat!

  15. Laura

    My son has been obsessed with Montana since we read Jack Hanna’s autobiography when he was 6. He’s now 12 and we love to travel and explore wildlife. Definitely a dream vacation.
