We are Patty and Rick. We love to travel. Enjoy classic cars, antiques, nature. We are very family oriented.
Our 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.
We have Glacier National Park 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. Bigfork is about 30 minutes north. Missoula is about an hour south. Kalispell is about 45 minutes north. We have 2 ski resorts: Big Mountain (Whitefish) and Blacktail Mountain (Lakeside).
Not expert in anything in particular. We do enjoy making people feel welcome.
Izabella is an 9-year-old Yorkipoo.
Just getting out there a little now and then so no favorite spots. We like being next to lakes/rivers. We have traveled America by automobile staying in hotels. Now we thought it was time to try travel in an RV.

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!
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!
