Very nice, clean and quite facility. The staff was friendly and helpful. Everything came off without a hitch. Reviews that take 200 charaters are not necessary to be able to complete a review. You need to change that.

Thank you for your review, I am not certain what you are referring to regarding the 200 characters but assume it is related to TripAdvisor. Please contact me if you would like to elaborate, I welcome any suggestions. Beyond that, I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope you are able to visit us again sometime.

The Marina Cay Resort is absolutely gorgeous. The staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. We stayed in Ridge 20. The views were amazing & it was everything we were looking for. I can't wait to come back in the summer time!!!

Rental condos, good value. The unit we had had terrible beds, probably old and in need of updating. Staff was great and the food was good. The resort is in a beautiful location in Bigfork Bay. Review of individual condo units could vary greatly from one to another depending on owner investment.

Large beautiful clean room on water. Quiet. Able to walk to town. Very nice! Anxious to come back in the summer and check out the Tiki Lounge outside. And maybe bring our boat. Has slips to rent right in front of your room on lakeside.

I stayed in the least expensive of the rooms and it was very clean comfortable and homey. Much more like staying in a guesthouse than a hotel. The furnishings are beautiful. You won't be disappointed.

Thank you for your time in writing a review. It sounds like you stayed in our Courtyard building. As you said, despite being our economy suites, they are quite comfortable. We hope you are able to return sometime.

Marina Cay Resort, located on Flathead Lake's Bigfork Bay, is a year-round resort with much to offer our guests beyond the natural beauty and adventure of Northwest Montana. Welcoming everyone from individual travelers to groups and families, we offer a variety of accommodations from standard Hotel-style Rooms and Suites to well-equipped 1 to 3 Bedroom Condominium Units. All guests of the Resort have access to our outdoor pools and hot tubs, BBQ and picnic areas, Marina with watercraft rental and gasoline services, Casino, Lounge and food and beverage outlets. In the summer, make sure to stop by the waterside Tiki Bar featuring Polynesian inspired food and all your favorite tropical drinks. Fall and winter mean sitting fireside in the Lounge and watching your favorite team. Whatever your mood, or attire, the Marina Cay has an option for you! Being located on Flathead Lake offers Marina Cay Resort guests the ultimate scenic summer playground with activities such as boating, water skiing and fishing right within reach. But many other year round activities can also be found in nearby Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall and Swan Range Wilderness Areas, Blacktail Mountain and Whitefish Mountain. These areas of Northwest Montana are not only famous for their summer activities such as hiking, biking and river rafting, but also for excellent snowshoeing, snowmobiling and ice fishing during the winter months. Visiting us without a car? Not a problem. A short walk from Marina Cay is the village of Bigfork, a picturesque and charming place chosen as "One of the 50 Great Towns of the West" and designated as "One of the 100 Best Small Art Towns of the Nation." World class art galleries, fine restaurants, live theatre and unique shops can all be found within a quaint Western setting just outside the Resort entrance.
