More than 30 members of the Long Island Ski Group descended upon the Kandahar Lodge for a week of great skiing, hot-tubbing, fireplace crackling and awesome friends. Beautiful rooms, excellent service, better continental breakfast than we expected, and a living-room-like lobby that accommodated the group hanging out throughout the days and nights. Highly recommended :)

45+ traveled to Whitefish and stayed at Kandahar Lodge. A great, cozy, warm place! Everyone was very accommodating and the food was terrific as well. Already looking forward to next visit! Comfortable beds and rooms and a nice social gathering area in the lobby.

Everything was very nice. The breakfast had a variety of meat cheese, and grains. We had a loft and it was nice and spacious. The wifi was our only complaint. It cut in and out it seemed no matter where you were. We will come back and stay again!

They have it all! Right at the Mountain, ski in and ski out. Van to take you within 5 minute wait. Ski Storage downstairs. Fabulous cozy lounge area, with leather down furniture and someone tending wood river rock fireplace so never smokey. Big huge pieces of dry wood. Computer right there with a free printer. Little bar by lounge area.... More

The Kandahar Lodge is a simple place to stay for the holiday. The rooms and lobby are nice and cozy, and the outdoor hot tub, which combines the snow and warmth, is the place to be after a long day of skiing. The Kandahar Lodge provides a place to keep your boots and skis nice and warm and it's shuttle... More

Decided to give this a try since all of the regular hotels in town were booked solid with a large soccer tourney going on this weekend. Just a short drive outside of town with amazing views and wildlife along the way. The lodge is nestled on the hillside at the base of the ski area. The parking area is quite... More

Beautiful location. Nice and accommodating staff. We arrived at 9:15 pm and they still were willing and able to cook us up a tasty dish. Steam room and hot tub were nice, but crowded. Continental bfast was a good one.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the lodge. The beds were cozy and it was truly a mountain warm lodge, everything we hoped for. I'll definitely plan another stay with my kids. My oldest daughter loved the hot tub. The only downside is they don't have an elevator, not that we needed one but it's a drawback to those that... More

Our stay at Kandahar was perfect! We stayed in September to visit Glacier National Park, the lodge was an hour away but was very worth it. The rooms are nice big comfy beds coffee, refrigerator and microwave. The complimentary breakfast included fresh cheeses and meats. We had bison and elk in the dining room and enjoyed the gorgeous views. It... More
