We stayed at the Kandahar Lodge for the last 2 nights of our Montana vacation. Perhaps had we stayed there 1st, our opinion would be better, but after spending a week on Flathead Lake w/ all of the amenities, we found the Kandahar to be a bit boring.
The Lodge itself was pleasant, although our room layout was a bit odd (2 queens facing opposite directions therefore only 1 bed w/ a view of the small TV) and cramped. Our biggest complaint were the lack of activities to do in the summer. During the day the Big Mountain gondola was running and there were some other attractions such as a zip-line and "Walk-in-the -treetops" guided tour, however, they closed early and afterward, there was NOTHING to do-no stores, and only a couple of restaurants that closed early and had limited menus. During the summer evening hours it was like a ghost-town.
If you're looking for a romantic getaway from it all, The Kandahar may be just what you're looking for, but if traveling w/ children of any ages, probably not your best bet.
