My wife and I struggle with Christmas gifts anymore. We are a mature couple, so we don't have a lot of stuff on our wish list. I have been asking for experiences instead, and always at the top of my list is a week skiing. We decided to try Whitefish Montana and began looking for a rental or resort within... More

The Kandahar Lodge is in a great location at Whitefish Mountain Resort. The big fireplace has a crackling fire going all day long and the lobby/living room area is nice for sitting and reading, or enjoying hot chocolate after skiing. The beds were comfortable, and we got our legs in shape for skiing climbing the stairs to our second floor... More

Kandahar Lodge is a little expensive, but totally worth it. The location is very nice, and the rooms are lovely and cozy. The ski slope is right behind the lodge, so you can walk to the lift; it would be a great place to stay in the winter, but we were there in the summer. We rode the ski lift... More

Great summer destination. Lots of food choices and activities. I hiked the superb trails. Lots of mountain bikers were fun to watch and chat with at the pubs. Pretty good opportunities for good beers at several locations on mountain. Great views! Delightful hotel, beautifully landscaped with helpful folks at desk, nice hot tub and meeting rooms for presentations.

Great experience at Kandhar lodge. Very charming and quaint. No elevator though. Beds were awesome super comfy. The best part of stay was the Snug lounge...the bartender Holly was there and what a rock star. Totally accommodating and worked her butt off. She provided great entertainment as well. We had a great night out there

Traveling solo to join an educational tour, I wasn't sure what to expect from this lodge based on past reviews. I loved it! The rooms were clean and well-appointed. The staff were attentive and kind, responsive to my special requests. The setting on Big Mountain couldn't be better for evening summer walks, and the cozy lobby was perfect for reading... More

The lodge was a great base for us to discover the area outside of Glacier National Park. We spent 3 nights at the lodge. As my title stated, no elevators to be found, so pack light. We stayed in a second floor room with a kitchen. It was clean and well appointed. My main complaint was there was no view... More

Not the best experience. Dark Dark rooms... no views. I wouldnt recommend it unless you are desperate. I was, for 4th of july I couldnt find anything under 250 dollars except this place. This place is 15 minutes walk from the ski lift but not much else around there. For summers, I wouldnt recommend this place. For winters I can... More

We stayed here for only 1 night during our trip through Glacier and it was a little far off the beaten path. It took almost 20 minutes to get back to the main road which just made the morning earlier. The room itself was nice. We had a good view of a garden area, but the room was super dark... More
