This is a great hotel with great atmosphere and services. I would forego the dinner there though. Overrated and overpriced. Great restaurants are in town about 7 miles away. I sent my main course back at the Kandahar. The huckleberry martini is fantastic.

We came up for a spring break ski trip. This was our first time staying on the mountain. We rented a loft kitchen room which was descent. Stairs to the loft are steep. Once in the loft it is hard to get around the first queen bed since it sits a leg width from the railing for the stairs. The... More

My husband and I stayed five nights at Kandahar Lodge in February 2014 and loved it. Our room was on the 2nd floor and was a nice size with warm decor and was quite comfortable. The staff were always helpful if we had a question, and every morning they gave us and our skis a ride over to the bottom... More

Kandahar is a nice place. It has a nice ski room with places for boots and skies. The wifi is very on and off but you connect better the longer you stay there. It has no pool but a large hot tub and a steam room both are awkwardly located on one side of the second floor. You can access... More

We've stayed here before but I've never done a review here. Each time we've been here has been excellent. The staff is very nice and accommodating. The price is right for being "on the mountain". You're just a minute or two walk to the shopping areas and it's easy to ski right down to the lodge. They have great ski... More

First off, if you love off the beaten path this place is for you. You travel just outside of town and go up a mountain side, beautiful view all the way. The lodge is located at the base of the mountain and you can ski right down to your room. We went in June, which coming from Texas, was perfect!... More

We've stayed here many times for ski vacations. The common area with fireplace is lovely and inviting and the Snug Bar and restaurant are wonderful. The hot tub is great and quite large. While it isn't quite ski-in/ski-out, you can easily ski in and walk around the building and the hotel shuttle will whisk you to the chairlifts on demand.... More

This was a very nice place with all the ambiance of a ski chalet in the off season. First to address some of the complaints of other writers. It is multi level and there is no elevator. That being said I have a bum leg and do not handle stairs well with luggage. That is where the front desk clerk... More

Beautiful building and grounds. We were here on a Road Scholar trip; sometimes their accommodations are very basic but this was plush! Comfy beds, nice yards to sit in, whirlpool was fun. Breakfast was okay. We didn't dine at the restaurant. Chances are there's more going on in the little village in the wintertime but it was pretty dead there... More

It's a lovely lodge, although quite a way out of town and we wondered whether we were ever going to get there. The welcome was friendly and our room was comfortable (the height of the beds has been mentioned by others) and we felt entirely relaxed. We reserved a table for dinner in the restaurant which modestly claims to offer... More
