We spent three days at the Good Medicine Lodge in Whitefish, MT. It was the perfect balance of being on your own and enjoying the hospitality of the proprietors who worked to make sure you enjoyed your stay. The gathering room is set up with a help yourself approach, but the hosts were always nearby if you needed anything. I can't say enough the creative homemade breakfasts that Betsy puts together and the most incredible cookies which were always there for your enjoyment. Clean and pleasant rooms. Easy access to Whitefish (not walking distance but a quick drive) which is a great town to find some unique treasures, and the restraurants in town provided some great evening dinner choices. Hot tub available, evening wine and cheese or some other treats. Woody is a great resource for local area options. Highly recommend especially if no young children.

From the glass of wine and appetizers waiting for you on arrival to having to fight the temptation to take one more homemade cookie to sumptuous breakfasts and a great host, you will love the Great Medicine Lodge. Going over to Glacier for a hike? Woody will show you the short cuts and give you a can of bear spray (well, you never know ...). Want to dine in town? First take a look at all of the restaurant menus in the living room. Leaving before breakfast? They'll fix you up with "to go" cartons.

This was our 1st trip to Whitefish, we stayed for 3 nights over Thanksgiving weekend for our 29th anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations and the hospitality. We chose it based on TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The lodge is very spacious, the rooms inviting and the hot tub was a welcome perk after an afternoon of hiking as was the complimentary wine and beer at " happy hour". We were really made to feel welcome and at home. Breakfast was a highlight of our stay, always delicious and served with a smile in the spacious but cozy breakfast room. We also really appreciated the dinner suggestions and the availability of many local restraurant menus to peruse. We look forward to visiting again.

When you walk into the front door you are met by some of the most beautiful wood pieces you can imagine. Then in walks Woody with a big smile and welcomes you as if you are old friends. There is a long bar area where you sign in and it is hard to concentrate on your car license with three large glass cookie jars stacked to the top with the biggest cookies you have every seen. Unfortunately they taste just as good as they look so be sure to do lots of walking. The whole place is airy and light with lots of places to sit and read or talk to other guests. Woody is always around to insure you have everything you need. At 5 out comes the wine, beer and other goodies. There is always a coffee machine waiting and I got the hang of the fine art of pressed coffee. The bed and linens are top quality just as everything else. And breakfast well lets just say that when your hostess has her own cookbook that is for sale throughout the Glacier Area it must be good! Thanks Woody and Betsy it was great.

It is hard to say all that my husband and I could say that has not been said already... Summary.. If you are headed for the Glacier National Park area and Whitefish is near your route, than detour to make a stop over. Great rooms, special amenities and awesome breakfast options make this Bed and Breakfast a must. The rooms are well appointed, coffee and homemade cookies area available 24/7 for those early journeys into the park, close by ski area or sunrise at a local lake. Wine and appetizers are available in early evening. Woody and Betsy are both gracious and knowledgeable of the area. Restaurants are nearby and diverse. If you are fortunate, a deer or two may watch you having breakfast through one of the many windows in the breakfast room. We will be back as it is a nice compliment to a beautiful part of the Montana.

Woody and Betsy operate an exceptional Bed and Breakfast -- clearly the best at which we have ever stayed. Wonderful extras like cozy robes for the hot tub, homemade Montana size cookies available at all times, and coolers for day trips. Decor was bright, beautiful and carefully designed...yet...atmosphere was friendly and comfortable. Wonderful library of books about the area and proximity to Big Mountain Resort and downtown Whitefish was great! Breakfasts were very, very good with menu selections available and the opportunity to purchase some homemade granola for the next part of our trip. Staying at the Good Medicine Lodge was a fantastic way to begin our vacation to Glacier National Park. We would return again if ever in the area!!!

Woody and Betsy. What more can you say? Wonderful people, wonderful accommodations. Large living room with large windows and wool burning stove, smaller sitting area with fireplace, TV/reading room, large deck and back yard (with hot tub), bright and airy breakfast room, and all that before you even get to your sleeping room. We had the Great Northern Suite which had a separate seating area on a loft over the living room and a love seat in the bedroom in front of a gas “wood stove”. Whirlpool tub and a great shower. Fabulous breakfast with new surprises and options every day. Did I mention Betsy and Woody? Wonderful people with much local knowledge and genuine concern about their guests not limited to just their experience at Good Medicine. This experience will definitely be at the top of our list for any future visit.
