Wonderful Montana Getaway

5 on July 13, 2015

My husband and I both loved this B&B. He had been a little skeptical about B&Bs, in general, but he raved about what a wonderful place this was. Michelle is an outstanding hostess and serves a fabulous breakfast. In addition, she works very hard to accommodate her guests--we had to leave early two mornings, and Michelle had muffins ready the night before for us; plus, while we were there, another guest needed gluten-free meals, and Michelle took care of those needs. The setting is so peaceful and serene that it truly is a vacation.

So happy you enjoyed your stay with us and that I exceeded your husband's expectations!! And thank you so much for the kind words!


An Unforgettable Stay

5 on September 23, 2014

The Dreamcatcher Lodge was an amazing find. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind, with stunning views of the forest and mountains. Michelle and Fred were gracious hosts, greeting us with immense warmth and hospitality. Michelle felt like an old friend and made us feel right at home. And what a home! The residence is spacious, spotless and beautifully decorated, but at the same time, feels very cozy. The beds were so comfortable and the towels were unbelievably soft. Michelle not only prepared an incredible breakfast spread, going well beyond the call of duty to cater to our vegetarian needs, but also guided us on where to hike in National Glacier. We also briefly mentioned our curiosity about huckleberries and came home late at night to a lovely desert of homemade huckleberry muffins. We got to take advantage of the living room space—complete with a TV, movies, games and a kitchenette—which also served as an ideal work space. We had such a memorable stay and would love to go back. We highly recommend Dreamcatcher Lodge if you are looking for an unforgettable experience.

Wonderful, wonderful stay!!! A++!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Dreamcatcher Lodge on the way from Missoula to Glacier National Park. It is right on the way! First of all, the drive to the lodge is a treat in itself - the road is surrounded on all sides by the area's many beautiful small lakes. The lodge is even more beautiful than the fb photo in person! It is difficult to describe just how gorgeous the interior of the lodge is. The hosts have a true eye for rustic beauty and craftsmanship. Every part of the lodge had been thoughtfully chosen to create a warm and rich ambiance. It is welcoming and expansive while allowing for as much privacy and serenity as you'd like. We stayed downstairs in the Bear room - we loved how each of the rooms were names of animals in the area, and were also tastefully decorated with each room's respective theme. The bedding was extremely comfortable, and the private bed and bath had heating and gorgeous light. We were greeted very warmly upon arrival. Fred and Michelle took care in showing us all the available amenities, and even left us (really delicious) cookies to enjoy! When we asked about local activities/restaurants, they gave us plenty of their own personal recommendations and even took the time to place calls to see what was available at the time we asked. We were very well taken care of from the moment we got there to the time we left. Having mentioned that we were planning to leave very early in the morning to get a campsite, Michelle made us a delicious breakfast-to-go. It is hands down the best bed and breakfast in the area! It was absolutely wonderful to be the Dreamcatcher Lodge's first guests! We cannot praise the hosts more for their amazing property, sense of space & design, and wonderful balance of hospitality and professionalism. The only thing we regret is that we were not able to stay longer, but we will return during the winter for some skiing. Thank you, Dreamcatcher Lodge!

Beautiful, relaxing mountain lodge experience

We needed a get away weekend to relax and enjoy catching up with friends. The Dreamcatcher Lodge exceeded our expectations and the owners made our stay very warm and welcoming. We had a great weekend, wonderful accommodations. The breakfasts were well planned, presented beautifully and so delicious, and all the coffee you can drink! We're planning more trips back and we highly recommend staying here.

Imagine our surprise when my boyfriend and I discovered the Dreamcatcher Lodge when we decided at the last minute to spend the Labor Day weekend enjoying Glacier National Park! Michelle and Fred were so accommodating and spared no detail in giving us the most exceptional experience. Although we arrived past 9 p.m., Michelle came out to greet us and make sure that we had everything we needed as we were travel weary. Ambient lighting in the bedroom, beautiful grounds, delectable breakfast fresh from their garden ...and those bath towels!! Although we were all set to head off to Glacier after being fed the most incredible breakfast, we ended up lingering each morning to enjoy fresh brewed coffee, the beautiful view from the deck and the relaxing, peaceful vibe of the Dreamcatcher Lodge. We won't stay anywhere else now when we're in the neighborhood and neither should you!

Dreamcatcher Lodge is a 5 star bed and breakfast.

5 on September 07, 2014

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of spending three days at the Dreamcatcher Lodge. This is by far the BEST B&B we have ever stayed in. The Dreamcatcher Lodge is grand in size and appearance. The lodge is secluded on more than five beautifully manicured acres. You can see the mountains from the cozy seating on the rear deck , which is surrounded by flowering plants and trees. The interior of the Dreamcatcher Lodge is also grand and welcoming. Its large stone fireplace and leather seating allows guests a place to relax or mingle while enjoying the view through the extensive windows that surround the room. Deer were commonly sighted enjoying the mineral block ,that had been thoughtfully placed, not just for the deer, but for our viewing pleasure as well. Our room was wonderful. The bedding was luxurious and the bed extremely comfortable. The towels too, were plush. I especially liked the fresh cut flowers placed on the window ledge. As for the owners- Michelle and Fred, they too were warm and welcoming. We awoke each morning to a warm fire in the fireplace and to fresh coffee. The tables in the great room were each carefully set and once again there was fresh cut flowers on each table. Most of all, there was the aroma of something wonderful being prepared in the kitchen. We enjoyed fantastic breakfasts each morning and also the homemade baked goods. I am still craving more of the Michelle's huckleberry cake, huckleberry muffins, and those chocolate almond cookies! In addition to the splendor of the Dreamcatcher Lodge, it is also well located. It is close enough to the Kalispell Airport and to Glacier National Park and Whitefish. Thank you, Fred and Michelle we appreciated everything. Kathleen and Mark Longwood, Florida

A Beautiful and Tranquil Environment

We spent two nights at the Dreamcatcher Lodge. We were greeted with warmth and a friendship by Michelle and Fred. Everything was so comfortable and inviting. The surroundings property is beautiful and so peaceful. After a good night sleep we woke each morning with coffee and juice and the most scrumptious breakfast, which sent us off for our day of sightseeing in Glacier National Park with a smile. When we returned in the evening. The Martino’s offered up light refreshments which included an assortment of fresh fruit, cheeses and wine. They also were helpful when we asked about various restaurants, so we could try out the local cuisine and entertainment. What a wonderful time we had as their guests. In addition to our accommodations, there is so much to see and do that we can’t wait to plan another trip. Thank you, Martino’s for your hospitality we will see you again soon. Bev. & Roland Lamontagne

We looked for weeks for a BnB to relax at for a few days while touring the Glacier National Park / Kalispell, MT area. We were so pleased to find Dreamcatcher Lodge in our price range and the area we wanted. Their photos online really got us excited about our visit. We arrived and were greeted warmly. We were given a tour of their lovely lodging facility. They were completely accommodating and very service oriented. We always felt welcome and like lifelong friends coming home for a visit. We enjoyed their big "Kids" too. They were very helpful with where and what to visit and see. This was a PERFECT break in our busy travel routine. Thank you Fred and Michelle.

About the innkeepers

After two decades of sales/marketing & customer service in the hospitality and service field I decided to move on & create my long time dream of owning a B&B. I spent 15 years traveling around the US, South Pacific & Europe enjoying the uniqueness that B&B's have to offer, all while studying their culture and operations. In 2013 I set out to find the B&B I felt fit my lifestyle and personality. In early 2014 I discovered what is now the Dreamcatcher Lodge.
