Dear Mellencamp45, We are so happy that you choose The Lodge to stay at over the Valentines weekend. I am very sorry to hear that you could not get a reservation on Valentines day, but we do sell out very quickly for this special occasion.

I visited the lounge at the Boat Club for a solo lunch while my group was skiing. Enjoyed a delicious salmon club sandwich and a glass of wine overlooking the frozen lake. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the portion was large. Service was very friendly and quick as well. I would definitely recommend it!

We traveled here from Alberta, starting in Edmonton swinging through Lethbridge and arriving 10:30 P.M. on the night of Jan. 23 2015. I’d like to start off with simply saying bang for your buck, I can’t imagine there being any better deal. Arrived to a stunning property, just passed the center of Whitefish. Beautiful entry way and friendly staff to... More

Very fun New Years Eve...sat at the bar and had many wines and excellent Burgers. Had a few "Burt Reynolds" shots bought by Canadians sitting next door...multi-national fun! Chappy behind the bar added to the hilarity....good times!

I have been here over 60 times in the past 7 yrs. You can not beat the view in the summer. I love their food, service, dinning room, club house, back deck & tiki bar. I have only had bad service and food about 5 times, but it has never been enough to stop our family from coming back. Great... More

We had a wonderful dinner at the Boat Club on our first night in Whitefish. We were lucky enough that the holiday season menu was still available. It features the most popular dishes of the past year which made it difficult to choose! It was Monday night which we discovered was a bonus with 50% off any bottle of wine... More

We fell in love with Whitefish in 2004 on our original stay at the Lodge. We dined at the Boat Club several times that trip and every year since when we return during ski season. I love the setting surrounded by fire pits, the gorgeous frozen lake, and the rare treat of deer at sunset, moving across the frozen lake.... More

They butter flyed my Filet Minion Steak. I took my daughter there for Christmas dinner. We both ordered the Filet instead of the prime rib. Big mistake. They looked like a flat iron flank steak. Come on, not acceptable to distroy the finest steak you can buy. Wait staff was wonderful,, restaurant is beautiful.
