Hi, I’m Patty. My little corner of the world is awesome. Flathead Lake is the largest freshwater Lake west of the Mississippi. It is 28 miles long and 15 miles wide. It is magnificent. Lots of fishing, boating, kayaking etc. Glacier National Park is about 1-1/2 hours away. National Bison Range 45 minutes. Kerr Dam (SKQ) Flathead River area 20 minutes with awesome overlook. We have 2 museums in Polson. Main Street has many neat shops. Please visit our parks; Boettcher and Sacajawea are my favorite. Bigfork is about 30 minutes north. It is a very Artsy village, and main street reflects that. Be sure and drive over the one-lane bridge. Missoula is about an hour south. Kalispell is about 45 minutes north. We have 2 ski resorts: Big Mountain (Whitefish) and Blacktail Mountain (Lakeside).
I enjoy making people feel welcome.
Izabella is an 11-year-old Yorkipoo. She is disabled and loves pats and love.
I have traveled to all but 3 states. Driving to Alaska was the most awesome ever. I had done a couple of cruises there, but driving it was the best.
No rig right now. Looking.....
We met briefly because of my schedule. I was not happy to see them leave while a hurricane was approaching, but they were brave and went on to Pensacola. Hoping they will stop back here some day!
This was our first experience with Boondockers Welcome, and it was fabulous. Our host was thoughtful and kind, and couldn’t have been more accommodating. The setting among the willow trees was lovely, and we had a view of the lake from our RV. We highly recommend this host and this location.
Patty is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. I’m so grateful that God brought us together. During the last few days of our stay we thought we developed a propane leak and without propane we had no furnace to keep us warm. I was freezing and decided to go outside in the sun to warm up and Patty felt my freezing cold hands and immediately got us an electric heater she had so I could get warm. She was kind enough to let us use it for the remaining days we were there and let me tell you it was life changing! Patty is definitely a SUPERHOST!!!! I consider her a good lifelong friend. We will definitely keep in touch and we will visit her again next year. We broke the social distance rule on the 10th day...we are both HUGGERS! We truly love Patty. She has a kind gracious sincere heart...We will continue to pray for blessings to be poured on her and her family in abundance!!! Love, John & Brenda
This host was really kind and responsive, and the area is beautiful! Thank you!
I felt so safe & secure here. Just a beautiful place. The views of the mountains & the lake were great. I explored the local back roads & the entire experience was perfect. Great host, great place. I will certainly return if they will have me.
Excellent host and excellent spot. I can't wait to stay here again!!
Patty understood how much we wanted to visit the Going to the sun road at Glacier but because of the smoke we weren’t able to go, so she has graciously allowed us to extend our stay so that we can go. The rain is supposed to clear out the smoke by Sunday. Our plan is to go to Glacier on Sunday and then continue on our trip on Monday. Thank you Patty for continuing to bless us. We are so grateful.
Super friendly host and beautiful location - can't wait to return!
Patty was waiting for us and gave us several options for parking. We decided to park next to her barn where there was 50amp electricity hookups and water. Very level spot. Mountain View’s overlooking Polson Bay and Flathead Lake. Sunsets are beautiful. Our 5 days flew by and we still had several things to do in the area and Patty very graciously allowed us to extend our stay. God has blessed all of us greatly!
The host is friendly, welcoming, and caring. Good communication. Great spot with room for kids to play, level, easy in/out, and great view. Can't wait to go back to this spot!
We parked out in the field behind the property and it was perfection. A view of the lake on one side and mountains on the other! We were invited up each evening to sit around the fire pit and watch the sun set. So thankful we got a chance to stay here!
Montana Chickie was an AWESOME host. Wonderful grounds overlooking Flathead Lake in Polson, Montana. Very accommodating to everyone that was staying there. Very popular place. Four other rigs were boon docking but with 4 acres there was plenty of room. Even a large fire pit with many chairs for nice conversation.
We had a wonderful weekend stay, the scenery is beautiful. Montana Chickies back yard was very inviting and we enjoyed chatting at the evening campfires.
Patty was a dream come true! I’m used to parks with hookups but she made me feel instantly at ease and welcome! Can’t wait to find my way back to this area so I can stay with her!
Montana Chickee is the sweetest host and feel very fortunate that she shared her special place with us. It was the perfect place to simply “chill” or after a long sightseeing day a beautiful “home” to come back to. Thank you for your hospitality and for sharing your furry friend with Sadie! We will be back!
The view of Flathead Lake and mountains is awesome. The horses next door were fun to watch, and the shared evening campfire with our host made this one of our best boondocker visits. We would definitely stay here again when in Montana.
We had an amazing stay with MontanaChickie! What a beautiful piece of property just miles near the lake. On the last day we got to say hi to the horses nextdoor . We couldn’t have been happier with our stay.
You have two choices while stay there. In back there is space for two RV’s withe views to the rear of the lake and the mountains in front. Our wonderful hostess put us in front under a magnificent Weeping Willow and large pine in lush grass. Although the highway in front was a little noisy we slept like babies. We really enjoyed visiting with MontanaChickie sitting around the memorial fire ring in her backyard, a sweet gracious lady. This was a fantastic first Boondockers experience for us.
Easy to find the host was waiting outside for me.
I choose the back of the property away from the highway and had completel privacy on my stay.
Five stars Beautiful area to spend a few days at.
Very gracious host. Loved her fire pit and outdoor seating area. Would be back when in the area. Thanks for a great stay!
The name of this place is accurate, a little piece of heaven for sure! We met MontanaChickie as strangers but left as friends. Wonderful welcoming host, met us at the gate and escorted us to where we would park. A lush grassy open area big enough to navigate our TWO big fifth wheel rigs in and out easily! Our views were of Flathead Lake one direction and a mountain range the other direction. We felt quite at home in this ranch like setting. Peaceful, beautiful sunset. We travel full time using all types of stays from resorts, NP, SP, harvest hosts to boondocking. This is such a unique setting and wonderful host. The best boondocking experience to date. Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous property!! God BLESS you and we hope our paths meet again!!
Staying with montanachickie and her other guests on her lovely property was a dream. She was such a sweet person and fabulous host and we love sitting by the communal fire at night sharing stories with her and the ppl visiting. I would befriend her for a lifetime and recommend her to anyone who wants to share with a pure heart on her very special property. We loved our stay and want to come again
We absolutely loved our stay and it certainly was A Little Piece of Heaven! Beautiful views and close to the lake, downtown Polson, and about an hour and half from Glacier National Park.
We were able to enjoy a socially distanced fire with Montana Chickie and some other boondockers. Montana Chickie is a wonderful host and we hope to be back again in the future!
We stayed two nights and had the back forty to our selves. Nice campfire and very accommodating. Would stay there again.
A delightful lady! A beautiful spot, sunset over the Lake was wonderful. Tried to have a bonfire, but a quick, brief shower canceled that gathering. Chickie was friendly, helpful,, everything you want in a host. Would sure like to have her visit us in Iowa!
I’ve thought long and hard about what to say about the beautiful experience we had here, but I’ll keep it light and short.
Miss Montana Chickie is an incredible person who we will never forget. Her property is magazine worthy and her hospitality is unmatched. The views are stunning. You’ll have everything you need here, and then some.
We’ll be missing you Patty!
Truly is a Little Bit of Heaven! Will definitely go back, our visit was too short!
Enjoyed getting to know each other.
Gorgeous spot with a view of Flathead Lake! Host is very friendly and welcoming. I hope to cone by again.
Patty is a true gem! Her generosity and pure joy for hosting guests is infectious. I stayed two nights and feel like a part of her family. She has a gorgeous view of the lake, incredible sunsets, huge fire pit and plenty of space for 3 rigs to have privacy. The other campers there during my stay are now friends after a fun day on the lake, family dinner with Patty and her cute dog Isabella. I can't wait to make my way back to Polson to stay at Patty's place! Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Had a great stay here for a few days and good fire pit conversations with host and family. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Space was level and easy to access with a lake view!
Great host. Great views. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven.
Hostess was extremely nice and helpful. Wonderful setting. She made sure we set up in a place where we had a nice view of the lake.
This was our second stay here and we can't say enough good! The host is amazing, friendly and great with our kids.
The site has a gorgeous view, especially the sunset every night.
Lots to see around the lake and only 1.5 hrs to Glacier.
What a lovely and beautiful place...and Patty...well, she’s a true gem. We truly felt like welcome guests and had a fun campfire visit with her cute family members and other guests. Thank you SO much for your generous hospitality, Patty. Blessings to you as you begin a new chapter in your life. ❤️

We had a wonderful stay and what a beautiful property with a view of the lake. Plenty big for any size rig. Patty is extremely gracious and very kind. We will definitely come back if in the area😀. Thanks again!
It is called “a little piece of Heaven “ and the name is correct. Wonderful sl place to visit and enjoy. COVID kept our visit minimal but the short distanced visits were memorable. We will be back.
I enjoyed a little piece of heaven so much I returned again. The host greeted me with a beautiful smile and warm welcome. Montana offered up perfect weather and the location more beautiful than I remembered! I couldn’t ask for anything better and each night, I slept like a baby. Thank you so much!!!
This was our first stay with Boondocker’s Welcome.
It was a great experience and the host was very friendly and accommodating.
Recommended things to do in the area, and the property was amazing and we had even had some shade. 🙂 We would hope to be back someday in the future. Thank you for a great stay. We feel it can’t get any better than this.
Great fire 🔥
The only bad was that we had to leave so soon. 🙂❤️ Thank you for your hospitality.
I had a wonderful stay with an amazing and gracious host who made me feel so welcome. Situated on a grassy area, the windows of my 5th wheel coach opened up to a lovely view of Flathead Lake and the surrounding area. I couldn’t have asked for a better first experience using Boondockers Welcome. Thank you so much. I would definitely stay at this gem again.
The host was so welcoming and generous. They had just put in a firepit they let us use and joined us by the fire.
She and her family gave us great places to visit and were very helpful.
The spot is peaceful, beautiful and great views of the lake.
We would definitely stay here again!!
We had an amazing stay. They have a beautiful home. We had such a great time exploring the town and lake. We feel so lucky to have spent time getting to know the hosts. We were able to make dinner for them a couple nights and really get to know them. We have made friends for life. My kids absolutely loved them and didn’t want to leave. I hope we can get together again in the near future.
We had such a lovely time here! There was another Boondocking family and we all had dinner together like a community. The place is right near Flathead Lake, so we were also able to get in a little kayaking. Thanks so much for the hospitality!!
Patty and Rick were a pleasure to meet. When we got there they gave us places to go kayaking and bycicling. The one place they told has a beautiful sunset. Their son looked at our generator which we appreciated. Pretty area to visit.
A Little Piece of Heaven was wonderful. The place was so peaceful that it felt a lot like “home”. We regret not getting to meet The host couple in person but they were most accommodating on the phone and had everything arranged with the neighbor in case we needed anything during our stay. Polson is a perfect place to spend a few days with the massive lake and surrounding mountains. The people were friendly everywhere we went. This was our first BDW experience and it was just perfect!
We instantly felt welcomed and swapped stories over dinner. We’re glad they talked us into staying an additional night. Both nights the sunset over the mountains and lake was awesome. The parking spot was lovely, among the willow and spruce. Hope we get back this way again.
This was our second visit in a week and we couldn’t have asked for more. There is a laundry and showers not even 2 miles down the road which are clean and reasonably priced. Lots of great little stores in town to stroll around.
It was a pleasure to meet you and chat about your travels. Keep in touch and you are more than welcome to visit us anytime. Hope to return again one day.
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful part of the world. We were able to ride our bikes into town to explore some fantastic thrift and antique stores, walk around town and just have great conversations with our hosts. We hope to come back when you are back from Ireland but thanks for accepting our stay and loaning us your husband and fur baby.
Great view and hospitality, I appreciate the hosting allowing me to park for the evening. And what views mountains to the lake.
Very pleasant location
We enjoyed our first Boondockers Welcome stay very much! The property was lovely with trees and flowers, and we had a view of Flathead Lake. Richard was helpful with a water hookup and offer of electricity. He gave us directions and information about Polson.
Unfortunately we stayed only one night as we had an early morning appointment for RV repairs. We’d love to visit again,
We had a wonderful stay w/MontanaChickie. The Polson area is a great destination. We enjoyed the National Bison Range as well as meals at Cherry's BBQ and Pete's Lakeview. Thanks
Host was very Helpful and made sure we had a Comfortable stay with water and electric. Nice view of the lake. Got in rather late in the evening so didn't get a chance to visit much - maybe on our way back. Property is conveniently located next to the highway And only a couple miles from the Walmart. Thank you so much for the stay. You are welcome at our place in Florida if you make it down there.
Had a wonderful stay with Patty and Rick. They offered water and electricity and made us comfortable on their property. We can see the lake from the bus!
Super accommodation for a small rig even though the terrain was a little muddy because of the early season timing.
Great hosts, which I could have spent more time chatting.
Spent 2 nights.. nice location. Our hosts were very helpful. The site was roomy and would have had a great view if it werent for the smoke from the wildfires. Would recommend them as hosts and would be happy to meet them again.
We only stay one night but it was one of quality! Tanks again for all the advise and things to know about Glacier National Park!
If we ever drive there again be sure we will stay over there again!
This couple were genuinely kind and welcoming! They made sure we were settled in and took good care to orient us to the Flathead Lake area.
The kayacking on the lake was incredible! We shared a lovely meal with our hosts and made some new friends during our stay! Their little Yorkie-poo was absolutely precious!
We hope to host this gracious couple in return some day!
Last minute hosting and they were just fabulous hosts. So accommodating and friendly! Beautiful yard, nice view and so many recommendations for Glacier National Park. Thanks again for having us!
Montanachickie were great people and their property is absolutely wonderful..... I'm sure we will friends.... hope to be back in the future...
We stayed with MontanaChickie over the 4th of July and had a wonderful time. Their property is beautiful, comfortable, and they are so thoughtful about making a guests experience a positive one. We were able to access all of the surrounding sights and activities really easily. Thank you, Montana Chickie, for such a great experience!
