We stayed here recently for almost a week. The drive into town is gorgeous and the mountains behind the lodge offer hiking and other activities that kept us busy. Proximity to Glacier NP was key for us, and Whitefish had lots to offer its guests. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the continental breakfast was just right.

This place was great. Clean, cozy, polite. I travel a lot for business and have developed an eye for a crummy room and this was not crummy room It felt clean and cared for. The breakfast was better than what you'd find for free in most joints. The yogurt was actually a good quality yogurt and the bagels were fresh... More

The lodge is a place for a romantic weekend getaway. Large sunken lobby with a stone fireplace and a cozy bar close by. Don't take too much luggage as there are no elevators but the employees are more than happy to help you.

READ BEFORE YOU BOOK. The outside lobby and bar/restaurant (had great food) areas are comfortable and rustic. HOWEVER the room was OLD, hallways smelled with out of date stenciling, the phone was unplugged and out of service. The AC squeezed and rattled. Burned out bulb on range. No shower gel in the "on wall" dispenser of the shower. The only... More

Very Nice rooms and staff. Excellent location. Nice cold breakfast. Hot items would be welcome especially on chilly days. Hot chocolate for kids would be a welcome addition. The restaurant food was excellent but it would be nice if there were a few less exotic things for those traveling with children.

We decided to stay at this hotel because of the excellent reviews their restaurant had gotten. So we booked an evening and made certain the restaurant would be open. A week before they notified us the restaurant would be closed that evening and we should have our dinner in town since the hotel is on the ski mountain. That is... More

It's a beautiful lodge nestled in the mountains away from city hustle. Staff is friendly though limited...we had to wait for more than 15 minutes to be checked in since the receptionist was on phone..!! It was a bit annoying since we'd reached there after a day long drive. Room was spacious and clean. Breakfast options are very limited; I... More

At first glance, the lodge looks pretty good, and if you are looking for solitude, it might look even better. When we made our reservations, we requested a ground floor as we are all seniors,, when we arrived to check in, we were given third floor rooms, NO elevator! Our "continental breakfast consisted of: cold cuts, slices of processed cheese,... More
