Stayed here for 3 days in July and had a wonderful time! The rooms are older, but very clean. The bed was very comfortable and our room was cozy. The property is very well maintained and Kathleen was very accommodating. The location is about thirty five miles outside of all the noise and traffic of Kalispell, which is just what... More

We had just returned from camping in Glacier and were looking for a hotel to put our feet up for the night. We came to Laughing Horse, unaware of its treasure. What a fantastic surprise for us! This is absolutely a quaint, comfortable, adorable place to spend the night. And the restaurant for dinner and breakfast with it is even... More

Can't say enough about what an outstanding home (not just a restaurant) the Laughing Horse is. My husband's family has had a log cabin on Swan Lake for nearly 85 years and I've come to the area yearly --- visiting the laughing horse is a must-do highlight. The healthy, imaginative and clearly garden fresh food is excellent but nothing compares... More

We were cycling through this area and this lodge was a fantastic find. The rooms are so comfortable and very well appointed. The beds and linens were wonderful. The food was delicious. Very nice touches like a pot of coffee available very early in the morning on the outside patio that we could help ourselves to while we packed up.... More

Wonderful lodge. Great breakfast and nice accomodations. Stayed 2 nights, would definitely stay there again. Convenient to Bigfork and lake and many activities. Definitely a different and pleasant atmosphere.

This was our final stay on our trip and we were pleasantly surprised by the setup of the lodge. The rooms were simple but homey. There was no TV or air conditioning but it was nice to have a simpler setup. Everything was very clean. The only improvement we might suggest is wider sheets on the bed. The owner was... More

Our original reservation didn't work out so they referred us at 9pm down the road to this location. It was so much better than our original. We were able to pick a room from the board out front (actually we neede three rooms). It is quaint, high quality, extremely clean and the court yard very inviting. The breakfast made by... More

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
