Summer has finally arrived to the beautiful Flathead Valley. The flowers are blooming, boats are whizzing by on the lake, and kids are catching fish from the dock. Summer in Northwest Montana has to be one of the most spectacular places on earth. Those of us that live here spend 9 months of the year dreaming about the 3 months of summer. With days ranging from the upper 70's to low 80's, bright sunny days and no humidity, some say this weather is perfect. I have to agree.
The lake temperature is rising, but currently it registers just shy of 60 degrees. It will warm rapidly to peak out around 78 degrees which is perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day. Nights cool off to around 65, sometimes requiring a sweater, but perfect for an evening walk.
We here at the Lodge appreciate this piece of heaven we call home and can't wait to share it with all of you. All the employees at the Lodge are avid hikers, bikers, rafters, fisherman, and boaters. We are glad to provide recommendations of our favorite places where you can truly get off the beaten path, just ask. We look forward to sharing our home with you this summer. Cheers from the Averill family.
