It all relates to my reservation and check out, which is one of the most important, since that is when you pay your money for the service provided... Made a reservation a month in advance, they didn't tell me, but they charged my card. Checked in, and they had a higher charge for the room, and the desk clerk (clueless)... More

This is a pretty dated place from lobby to room. However, I have to admit I slept like a baby in that bed and bedding. Its a cozy place and I bumped up a star because the Manager went to extra lengths on multiple occasions to ensure I was going to be happy: told me about potential noisy kids due... More

Has a nice lounge and fireplace. Bed was 32" off the floor so I had a difficult time getting on and off. Heating system didn't work properly. Room always too hot, even with heat completely off. Huge hot tub was immaculate. Staff was helpful and van to and from the mountain was terrific. Skiing back to the lodge was difficult... More

A wonderful gem in Whitefish! The beds were luxurious, we slept great! A huge hot tub, had it mostly to myself. Treat yourself to a decadent meal at Kandahar Cafe. The yak carpaccio is not to be missed!

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
