The best food you'll have in a very long time. We go every summer and it wows us over and over again. The dinners are divine. Every summer Kathleen does a few weekend specials that will get you two nights, two breakfasts and two dinners for a great price. It makes a luxury weekend affordable. The rooms are cozy, no...

This was an unexpected find during a cold rain storm. We stumbled upon it on our motorcycles. It was one of the best and most charming Inns I've ever visited. I loved every second. From the great breakfasts to the log cabin rooms. I can hardly say enough about how great The Laughing Horse is. Kathleen, the owner, makes it... More

In August, 2014, my riding friend and I shipped our motorcycles west to Denver from Connecticut and followed them by plane for 3 weeks of riding through Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. By the time we got to Glacier National Park, we had put on over 3,500 miles on our bikes. We had a great ride through Glacier on... More

We enjoyed our stayed at the Laughing Horse Lodge. A lovely, quiet location with nice gardens and courtyard. The food was great. We were surprised to see the restaurant so busy on a weeknight. The rooms were nice, clean and basic, but all we needed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will surely come again. The food was great and being unplugged for a few days was priceless. It was nice to meet new people each morning at breakfast and share stories.

I've been going to Laughing Horse with my family for years so I consider myself an expert reviewer. This place is AMAZING. I've been privileged to eat at some of the best restaurants in New York, Paris, LA, etc etc so when I say this place is amazing, I really mean it. Kathleen and the entire team at Laughing Horse...

We arrived on a Wednesday afternoon. The courtyard area is a little oasis with a fountain, hanging baskets, and some lovely plants all around. We stayed in the room with two bunk beds since our kiddos were with us. The room was sufficient for what we needed. We had dinner there the first night, and it was delicious. It could... More

We chose the Laughing Horse Lodge based on the positive reviews we saw on Trip Advisor and because of the prices/negative reviews on hotels that were close to Glacier National Park. We knew that the Laughing Horse was pretty far from the park but we typically don't mind a drive. Let me just say that the lodge is a beautiful... More

We stayed at the Laughing Horse Lodge for our honeymoon for 4 nights. My husband and I were really excited about it and when we got there, it was really cute and in a fun location. I grew up around Seeley Lake, so I was excited to spend some time around there. We were excited about the food and about... More

Thank you for being a guest in my home and violating my privacy by publishing your observation of a very personal and painful moment between my mother Gloria and me. To be clear, I wasn't 'yelling' at my 'elderly' parent, I was screaming at a stubborn woman who was refusing to take her heart medication. Future guests, however, won't have... More

There are really four things to review: (1) Restaurant for evening meal. Really excellent food, drink, and service. Kathleen is a wonder in the kitchen: our appetizer with a German blue cheese, figs, and fig jam was scrumptious; main courses of red trout and of tender pork (both on beds of interesting veggies); dessert good (peaches and huckleberries) but could...
