Recent Lakeside guest reviews

We had two families present for a weekend visit and had a wonderful time. It was the lakeside vacation that I had been envisioning for a few years. There is a small beach and dock available which was perfect for the kids. The rooms are spread out so our baby crying didn't disturb the other family sleeping in the downstairs/basement rooms. Overall a really comfy spot and a great way to spend time at the lake.

La Tierra Lodge had everything you could ever want. The view was amazing, saw deer walk through the yard. The beds were so comfortable, the kitchen had everything you needed and the house was nice and warm. We can't wait to go back.

This place was everything we wanted in a place to have a family vacation for a week. Cabin was beautiful, comfortable, well stocked, and exactly what you could ask for in a mountain cabin in Montana. Great location also, feels completely secluded, yet was a short drive to a small town that have everything you needed. Coffee shop, groceries, a brewery, and even a park along side one of the most beautiful lakes I’ve seen. Super close to lots of other things too- we took a short drive to big fork to have breakfast and shop and walk some nature trails, and we also took a day trip to Glacier National Park and spent some hours there. We met some family there at the cabin and took our 2 dogs with us, and we all had a very magical and memorable time! Heads up- if you have dogs, the neighbor’s dogs get loose and come on the property often, but the local authorities are quick to help handle the situation. Vacasa was also super helpful with it too. This was a perfect place for us and from booking to driving home it was a pleasant experience.

Explore Lakeside, MT

Outdoor opportunities are no less appealing in other seasons, as cooler temperatures bring snow sports, cultural festivals, holiday celebrations, and other unique events that will appeal to families, couples, adults, and children alike. So no matter when you choose to visit the beautiful town of Lakeside, our vacation rentals provide the perfect jumping off point for any adventure.

Where is Lakeside, MT?

With sweeping views of Blacktail Mountain Ski Area to the west and Flathead National Forest to the east, Lakeside's four miles of waterfront lie near the north end of Flathead Lake. Rising to an elevation of 2,910 feet, this charming community is bordered by two similar ones - the quaint village of Rollins to the south and Somers to the north. A short 14-mile trip up Highway 93 brings you to downtown Kalispell and the regional airport, and the artsy mountain town of Whitefish is only another 15 miles farther. Best of all, the breathtaking landscape of Glacier National Park begins just 51 miles northeast in welcoming West Glacier.

Things to do in Lakeside, MT

Summertime and bountiful sunshine bring all forms of watercrafts, sunbathers, swimmers, and anglers to the cool, brilliant blue waters of this massive, glacially-formed lake. When you stay in one of our Lakeside cabins, you'll find ample opportunities for boat tours and fishing charters, as well as scenic kayak and canoe trips, where you can visit the coves, inlets, and expansive open reaches of this nearly 200-square-mile lake.

Bring the whole family for a ride aboard the Far West - a massive lake cruise ship that departs daily from the Lakeside Marina. As an added bonus, all those who come aboard can bring their own coolers, beer (for the 21-and-over-crowd), picnic baskets, or grab a delicious entrée from any of the dockside restaurants.

When winter arrives, the town turns its focus to snow sports at nearby Blacktail Mountain Ski Area, which encompasses 1,000 acres of pristine national forest with an average snowfall of 250 inches. Uncrowded lift lines and powder-laden slopes combine for exceptional downhill skiing and snowboarding framed by stunning views of Glacier Park in the distance and the jagged peaks of the surrounding Mission, Whitefish, and Cabinet Mountain ranges.

Day trips from Lakeside, MT

When visiting northwest Montana, stopping by Glacier National Park is a must. Luckily, our Lakeside cabin rentals will have you from your front door to the west entrance in about an hour. Home to healthy populations of grizzly bears, moose, mountain goats, and a dozen other big game species roaming freely, these roughly 1,583 square miles of soaring peaks, glacier-carved lakes, and sprawling alpine meadows are some of America’s most wild and untamed lands. 

Begin your visit with a drive along the iconic Going-to-the-Sun-Road, a scenic 50-mile road with hairpin turns at dizzying heights (6,646 feet at its highest point). Watch dramatic cliffsides ebb into breathtaking valleys as you pass over the Continental Divide, then park, lace up your hiking boots, and continue exploring on the Highline Loop or the Grinnell Glacier Trail – both challenging hikes with scenery that’ll leave you slack-jawed.

Powder hounds will have their share of fresh tracks only 14 miles west at Blacktail Mountain Ski Area, but a trip 37 miles north to Whitefish Mountain Resort yields even more options to keep the skis sliding all day. Here, you’ll find 105 trails at lengths of up to three miles, as well as five terrain parks and an impressive variety of both on-piste and glade skiing and snowboarding for all levels of experience. 

Make memories that will last a lifetime on your next visit to northwest Montana and live large in Big Sky Country at one of our comfortable Lakeside vacation rentals.
