Booked the Bali Room for a spontaneous two day getaway from Missoula. It was a little less expensive than some other properties and based on the reviews, went ahead and booked. The room had two queen beds, a kitchenette, a living area and a large bathroom. Overall, clean and tidy and good enough for being on flathead lake. Was a...

This motel is a quaint often missed place to stay. The owners and staff go out of their way to accommodate your every need. Nicely remodeled theme rooms add to the enjoyment. Cross the road to the Raven and you are on the lake. Very freindly place to stay. HIghly recommended.

A quiet,rural setting on Flathead Lake. Kayaks near, Great views. Lush lawn. Well kept rooms. Just a great stop. Free Wifi. Dogs welcome. The beds are good with fridges in the rooms. The staff at the motel and restaurant know the area well so can help with short trips.

Spent a day and night in Bigfork, MT on our way north to Glacier National Park. Inn cabin was clean, comfortable and casual with the rustic, rural feel that we were looking for. Nothing fancy but fit the setting perfectly. Cabins are across the street from the lake and with very limited water view, but this is a minor complaint...

Was in town for a wedding and needed to be close to Big Fork. This little quaint hotel was perfect. When we arrived, check in was already complete and we had our room key within seconds, very easy! The staff was very friendly and extremely;y helpful. We stayed in the Crete room, which was fairly basic. Everything was clean and...

We've stayed at a huge variety of places up near Flathead Lake, Whitefish, and Glacier National Park, always looking for a new place to train (Stand Up Paddleboard) or give classes. Woods Bay was a place that always appealed to us, but hadn't stayed, so when we decided to take a 2 day paddle trip, I looked into staying there....

We arrived and found that the hotel is across from a very busy busy road and the access for the beach that is supposed to be for the hotel guests are crowded by all of the restaurant and bar clients. Its not a lot of water front at all, super crowded! Lots of live music and noise from the bar...

If you are on your way to Glacier and need to make a stop to rest, this is a great option. It is not cheap, but it is charming. All the rooms are named after islands. They are sweet, ruthlessly clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The view of Flathead lake is awesome....

I felt a little cheated. Maybe I just read everything wrong. But I thought we overlooked the lake...even though it was across the road. Nope. Can't see the lake from our room. The hotel is perpendicular to the lake...so no view. I had envisioned sitting on an adirondack chair, sipping wine, reading a book, and watching the waves lap the...

My two small children (3yrs and 8months), my wife, and I spent a night at this Inn while traveling around Montana on our way South from Canada to Laramie Wyoming. Found it on-line and booked based on very affordable price, nice pictures, and pretty location right on the water. We arrived later than we had hoped (8:40 pm) and the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Islander Inn is a tasteful collection of guestrooms and bungalows situated just a stone-throw away from Flathead Lake. The Islander is where you can put a little distance between yourself and the rest of the world. We have a pure island lifestyle with an assortment of 8 different themed suites and bungalows. Whether you gravitate toward a Hawaiian, "Maui" style, or if you're more of a Montanan "Wild Horse Island" type of person, we offer you a unique window into a tasteful and original environment. We are also "Dog Friendly," with well behaved humans. ... more   less
