Everything about this place makes your jaw drop.. From the vision of the early builders to furnish this mansion with pulley systems for laundry, counter weighted elevators, antique time period furniture, gun collections to toys of the children at the time.. This place is a time machine to the past with a twist.. Our guide was superb, knows the history, details and drama of the place.. Antique Roadshow should showcase his place!! What an amazing find in downtown Kalispell.. Keep eating and traveling.. Rolly H..

Bigfork Summer Playhouse

Reviewed By bmac1260 - Lafayette

The Bigfork Summer Playhouse brings talented college student actors to Bigfork every summer to perform in a variety of musicals. They come from all over the United States and try out to be accepted. It's considered to be one of the best summer stock theaters for aspiring college age actors in the country. This summer's Mama Mia was sold out well in advance of every performance and we couldn't buy a ticket in advance. So, we went to the theater at 5:20 pm to get into a waiting list line that the theater began making at 6pm. We were the sixth in line. The first in line started the line at 5 pm. After the list was taken we were told to come back at 7:45 pm when they would know how many tickets they had. We went out to dinner, came back and we got in! It was phenomenal, better than any production of Mama Mia I've seen.
The theater is beautiful with plenty of room between rows. The talent and production quality of course vary from year to year and from musical to musical but invariably they are able to attract several actors who are excellent.It's well worth the cost of a ticket, which by today's city standards is a bargain.
If you are looking for something to do while in or near Bigfork, having dinner in a local restaurant before the theater is definitely worth doing. You can purchase tickets and select seats online.. Make a dinner reservation, however. The tourist trade in this area which is near Glacier National Park has grown significantly over the past few years. It's not uncommon for the best restaurants to be fully booked. Families with young children should check with the box office for appropriateness (adult content). Mama Mia was a tad over the top for young children but I've found that most of their productions are not. Good luck getting an aisle seat,

My husband and I booked a half day tour with Sea Me Paddle and it was fantastic. BJ is an awesome guide with a ton of knowledge and fabulous local tips. The tour of the lake and the homestead on Cedar Island was stunning. One of the best memories on our roadtrip through Montana!

Captain Mike's Fish~N~Fun

Reviewed By Livin2Travel45

I met Captain Mike at the dock for our 8:00am trip. Before he could impress me with his guiding skills, he showed me what kind of person he is: caring, thoughtful, proficient and professional. We were waved down by two men in distress as we were making our way out to the open waters of Flathead Lake. They had capsized their boat the night before and had spend all night balanced on the hull of their boat. They were cold & exhausted! Captain Mike did everything necessary to obtain the help & support needed for these two men. Quickly assessing the situation, he called the Sheriff, contacted EMTs, provided clothing & shelter and food & water. The whole event took about 2 1/2 hrs. We were relieved to know that, when we left these men, they were in far better shape than when we found them.
Captain Mike offered to extend my fishing trip by 2 1/2 hrs and began to show me his knowledge of fishing on this lake. We ended up catching 12 Lake Trout and 1 Bull Trout. My day of fishing was exciting and memorable, but it's Captain Mike and the rescue that will remain fresh in my mind for a very long time.

Swan River Nature Trail

Reviewed By RiverDays - montana

This walking trail is well-loved by many. One of its greatest assets is how wide it is. Two or three people can easily walk side by side, so it makes for a great place for conversation. I often think about how many problems have been solved, fences mended, inspirations shared, by folks walking this trail.
Plenty of dog walkers (I am one) but please, keep your dogs on leashes, and clean up after them. Loose dogs have created problems, and this is a beautiful place meant for everyone's enjoyment. Walk, jog, bike in sun and shade, level and gentle slopes, clean outhouse at the halfway point (one mile). Bring water if it's hot out.

Far West Boat Tour

Reviewed By DoctorKnow85 - North Oxford, Massachusetts

Very nice leisurely cruise around the lovely Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. The captain provided interesting history and narratives as we cruised. Reasonable price. You can bring a picnic lunch and BYOB. Can get tickets in advance but doesn't usually sell out, so you can also take the chance and do same day ticketing. Worth doing if in the area!

Wayfarers State Park

Reviewed By CATTSAR - Provincetown, Massachusetts

This is a great park right on Flathead Lake. Needless to say it is a hot spot for boating. However as the weather warms up other activities become readily available. Hiking, biking, swimming and camping are also popular. The park is conveniently located five minutes from Bigfork and less then 30 minutes from Kalispell on MT 35. Great way to spend a day.

Wild Horse Island State Park

This primitive park, which can only be reached by boat, is home to wild horses and other animals.

Reviewed By aa b - fca

Apparently the state limits the number of horses on the island to five. We circled the entire island by boat and saw no wildlife. Services on the island are limited to one composting toilet a long hike in from the shore. Very undeveloped in terms of a state park.
