The skies are turning grey, the air is colder, but Montana is full of warmth, hospitality, and joy this holiday season. There are many beautiful towns that fill the Flathead Valley, anchored by Flathead Lake and Glacier National Park. Just a short drive separates them, but each community offers a unique glimpse into the Montana way of living. Which is why we have so many homes scattered around the valley. From our refreshing lakeside dwellings to our cozy cabins and unsurpassed luxury retreats we offer something for everyone wanting to explore all the different sides that the valley has to offer. Enjoy Montana has ensured that every property is prepared for the colder temperatures that the winter weather brings, we want your stay to be delightful and full of memories.
With our lovely neighborhoods decorated in their holiday finery and the jingle of bells outside of storefronts, it’s a wonderful time to partake in the festivities. From ice skating to snowmobiling, or even taking a kayak out on a glacier lake to witness the breathtaking expanse of mountain vistas, there is a gentle quiet that settles on the area this time of year.
Explore the charming window displays, warm your hands at an outdoor fire pit. Take in a play at the local theater in Bigfork. Most towns offer a place to purchase handmade gifts for your friends and family. Take pleasure in finding a unique treasure to share with those you love. Delight in the sparkling lights, the wonder of children. Partake in an impromptu snowball fight or sled race. Be filled with joy at the sound of children’s laughter and the sparkle of snow lying soft on the ground.
It’s a magical time of year. While the weather may be grey and dreary, the mountains loom dark and blue against the sky, the snow glistens white on the lacy branches of the evergreen, and winter berries pop red with cheer. Grab the hand of the one you love and walk down the lane as the sun begins to set and darkness steals the light. Then enjoy the twinkle of Christmas set on display in candles and finery as everything glows in color.
This is when you want to Enjoy Montana. When the crowds have dispersed and the warm hearts of a close-knit community beckon you to partake in the whimsy of a handmade holiday. Soft and real, full of fancy. Take the time to reflect on your year and plan for all the years to come. Settle into one of our beautiful cabin rentals or vacation homes, away from the lists and to-dos, and take a minute to dream for you and your family. It’s a wonderful moment to live in holiday cheer.
