5/5 Not sure what I want to share
Date of Stay: September 3, 2011
We had the most awesome and relaxing family reunion. Karen & Don were very gracious hosts when hot water went out for a few days. Beautiful lake, grounds, weather, what more could you ask for? All the amenities of being in your own home and then some. Not sure I want everyone to know about this place as it might be more difficult to get it for our next reunion. Thanks again to Karen & Don for knowing how to take care of us in the best fashion.
5/5 The pictures don't do this place justice!

Not only were the accommodations amazing but Don & Karen went out of their way to make sure everything was just perfect. One day we were trying to start a fire (it rained the entire two weeks so the wood was wet) and after about 10 minutes of struggling we saw Don coming down the driveway on his 4wheeler with dry wood. It's those little things that made the experience wonderful and would make me definitely stay here again!

From grand parents to parents to grand kids all agreed this was the best family vacation. Perfect setting, house, accommodations and owners. Karen & Don are great hosts and have anticipated your needs for a 5 star vacation. They meticulously maintain their property and go out of their way to make sure you have a quality stay. There are excellent day excursions close by to Flathead Lake, Whitefish and Glacier Peak National Park. If you just want to stay put there is great fishing, boating or your can just sit on the hugh deck and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Our stay was in August and it is now November and just thinking back to our stay gives me a warm feeling. Looking back at this vacation the only down side is that it was to short and the wait to return will be too long. Thank you Karen and Don for sharing your paradise in Montana.
5/5 Picture Perfect !

This vacation home belongs on the cover of a magazine. It's a perfect setting on a crystal clear lake with serene mountain views. The home and property are meticulously cared for and feel more like home than a rental property. Karen & Don ensure all the little things are taken care of so all you have to do is unpack and relax. The amenities are many and we appreciated all the personal touches that make the stay one to remember. It's located close enough to Kalispell to be convenient, yet far enough to be able to enjoy nature at sits best. I highly recommend this property-must be one of the best on VRBO!

From the gorgeous scenery to the gracious hosts, this was the perfect vacation getaway. The house has a lot of nice personal touches, and Don and Karen were very considerate of our privacy as well as our needs. The house is truly phenomenal, the views stunning, and the fish pleasantly elusive. We would certainly recommend this to anyone. The location is far enough from a large town to be secluded, but close enough to allow use of the services. It is also very easy to find, even without GPS. We will certainly be going back.

We loved the house and our time away with our family! Extremely well stocked and much more than we had expected. The kids each had their own room and we all shared the three full bathrooms. We used the hot tub day and night especially when the weather was cool. Loved being right on the lake and even had a big crayfish feed caught right below our own dock. Very gracious and generous hosts! We would highly recommend this private and relaxing retreat!
5/5 WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL!

What a little piece of heaven on earth in this place! Serendipitously we were able to find this gorgeous house on the lake for our vacation in Montana. The owners, Karen & Don Cromwell were the best. They made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay great (even some mosquito spray). We enjoyed all the pluses of their place: Immaculate house, expansive deck with great sunsets to watch over the clear lake, in deck spa, full kitchen, comfortable beds, quiet solitude and fresh air. They shared a ride on their pontoon for the two of us and even made a fabulous steak diner to help celebrate a 55th birthday. What is rating for this vacation rental? It is a definite 5 star, Triple AAA accommodation. Move over the Ritz-Carlton – McGregor Lake Vacation Rental has you beat!
5/5 Great Vacation Home

This place is beautiful and even better than we expected! The home has 5 very large bedrooms and three full baths! This house easily accommodated us and 7 of our children. The deck is Huge and we used the hot tub everyday after skiing, wake boarding and tubing on the pristine Lake McGregor. The lake was so clear and often very glassy. We brought our ski boat and launched it right in front of the house – there is a private launch ramp and private dock. Most of the time we were the only boat on the lake. We visited Glacier National Park – only a 1 hour and 10 minutes away. It was an easy day trip-back in time to ski that evening. The kids caught crayfish and we had a crayfish broil-tasted like lobster! We built fires in the fire pit at night and made s’mores. The owners are very nice and helpful. Our stay was very comfortable. The full kitchen made it nice to cook. The landscaping is very nice and has some nice large grassy areas. We plan on coming back next year!
5/5 Amazing place!

This place is amazing! We were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful and spacious this cabin is, the rooms are all huge and the deck is probably the biggest deck I have ever seen! The yard is beautifully landscaped and Don and Karen keep it immaculate. We spent many hours in the hot tub watching the sunsets just steps from the water. We thought the kids would be a bit disappointed that there isn’t a beach, but they spent hours jumping in the lake off the dock, snorkeling and catching crawfish. The lake is quiet, calm and crystal clear. We rarely saw more than one boat waterskiing on the entire lake. The Cromwells were always near by if we anything yet also gave you your space. They also graciously took us around the lake on their pontoon boat showing us the sights. We agree with another reviewer, mixed feelings about giving it an excellent review cause we ant to keep this secret to ourselves! One of the best vacations we have ever had…we will be back!

I have mixed feelings about writing this review. On the one hand, I’d like to keep it a secret. On the other, it deserves to be enjoyed by others. This is a GREAT place. The pictures do not do it justice. While I am not sure I would recommend it to families with small children because there is little beach area, to all others, Wow. We had the opportunity, thanks to the owners, to see the whole of the lake and the homes there. It is the BEST place on the lake. If a quiet vacation by the lake is what you are looking for, this is it. The owners, by the way, Don and Karen Cromwell are the most gracious and accommodating hosts you could ever want. Believe me, you would not be disappointed in this rental. One caveat: when we were there the mosquitoes were relentless and ferocious. Fortunately, the breezes from the lake, screening, and repellents, made the vacation enjoyable. But be warned, at times the mosquitoes can be relentless. Would we go back? In a heartbeat!
Thank you to all of our Guests who have taken the time to submit such wonderful reviews for us. It was a pleasure meeting you all and we hope our paths cross once again in the future! All the best to you all,
Don & Karen Cromwell.
