We look forward to welcoming you to the Flathead Valley and Glacier National Park area of Montana, but we know how daunting it can be to plan a trip in an unfamiliar area.  We’ve put together a few pages that we think might help out.

During your stay, our front desk staff will be ready to help you with all the latest local information to ensure you leave with memories that will last a lifetime.

Venture out on your own day excursion, or allow us to arrange a multi-day hiking, mountain biking, or sightseeing. Rent your mountain bikes right here at the lodge! For rafting, trail riding, hunting, fishing or snowmobiling, we can help by arranging an outing for you with one of the many outfitting organizations we partner with.  Ask us about great discounts on outdoor activities, whatever the season.

If some retail therapy is in order, the boutiques of nearby Bigfork, Whitefish and downtown Kalispell are sure to delight. Or why not try the many antiques shops? Don’t forget the gift shopping for loved ones, friends and family! After a long day’s adventure, come home and relax at the lodge, dine in one of the valley’s fine restaurants and unwind in the sheer beauty and spectacular scenery of the place we call home.

We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful area, and your home away from home right here at the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins.

The owners and staff at the Historic Tamarack Lodge have ‘never met a stranger’ and want to make your stay a memorable one so breathe deep and prepare to experience the American West like you never have before.

Flathead Valley Activities

March 16th, 2013 by teresa

20sWhilst we are thrilled that we are located so close to Glacier National Park, we don’t want our guests to miss out on experiencing the rest of our back yard.  Glacier National Park is a tiny million acres of wilderness in comparison to the 2.4 million acres of the Flathead National Forest.  For guests seeking backcountry adventures beyond the constraints and crowds of the national park, the Forest offers many, many opportunities including three areas designated wilderness areas.  The Bob Marshall Wilderness is probably the most well known of these three, offering camping and fishing and an absence of motorised vehicles.

Within a 30 minute drive of your accommodation at the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins is the beautiful Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi.  The 27 mile long lake has camping spots and boat launches around its periphery.  Take a drive around the entire lake stopping off at places of interest on your way.  Dip your toes in the crystal clear water at Yellow Bay or Lakeside, enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants overlooking the water, or shop for antiques and take an art walk at Bigfork.  Cherry orchards line the east side of the lake and cherry season is a must!  Don’t worry if you miss it – there are plenty of locally-made preserves around to enjoy. Eva Gates in Bigfork will even mail them to you!

Whitefish city is another local delight, whatever the time of year.  Home to the outstanding ski slopes of Whitefish Mountain Resort, you can take in the view from the summit whether skiing or enjoying one of the many summer activities on offer.  Enjoy a day mountain biking or ziplining.  Take a walk in the treetops or simply relax and indulge yourself in the day spa.

Movie theatres, restaurants, bars and bowling alleys are all available within a short drive, but we find our guests’ favorite way to while away the evening consists of toasting marshmallows around the firepit whilst watching the sun set in our big Montana sky.

Visit our website to select your lodging choice and book your stay here. We can’t wait to have you join us!

 

Spring Break from $25 pp

March 13th, 2013 by teresa

7559342-kids-hiding-behind-tree-trunkSpring break is almost upon us once again.  Down let them drown you out with cries of ‘Mom, I’m bored!’  Treat yourself to some time away and provide the kids with some wholesome entertainment courtesy of the Montana Rocky Mountains with stays from $25 per person per night when you book using our 20% Spring Break discount.

Spring is a great time to visit our area.  There’s always snow on higher ground at this time of year bringing the opportunity for snow sports and winter fun whilst in the valleys you have the opportunity to hike, bike and enjoy the awakening of flora and fauna along the trails.

Our 10% activities discount allows you to make even greater savings and will help to keep the kids active and occupied.  Treat them to a snowmobile ride to the top of nearby Desert Mountain.  The view stretches right across Glacier National Park and up to Canada.  Its an unforgettable experience.

Grab a pizza in nearby Whitefish and then enjoy a little night skiing at Whitefish Mountain Resort. Treat yourself to a refresher lesson and polish up your skills on the slopes whilst the kids enjoy activities in the Base Lodge.

The Flathead Lake is a sight not to be missed.  You can take a drive right around it stopping for refreshments at picturesque Bigfork, or to visit the Miracle of America Museum at Polson.  Blacktail Mountain offers family friendly skiing with great views across the valley from the west side of the lake.  Catch a movie in Kalispell on your way back or enjoy family style dining at a number of  restaurants.

For those who you just can’t drag away from the Mall, Kalispell Center Mall will stave away withdrawal symptoms, but we’re pretty sure the spectacular scenery and great outdoors will win the day overall.  Its impossible to stay here and not appreciate the vastness and pristine nature of our environment (whatever your age!).

Glacier National Park Road Trip

February 13th, 2013 by teresa

The summer months are an excellent time to take a road trip through our area.  More than a million visitors every year travel to visit Glacier National Park, and the pinnacle of their visit is the 50 mile long Going to the Sun Road.   The two-hour long drive winds its way through some of the most spectacular scenery you will ever see.  View alpine meadows, crystal clear lakes and mountain peaks from the road, or stop off and enjoy one of the many viewing spots, picnic areas or hiking trails. The road crosses the Continental Divide at Logan’s Pass where there is a Visitor’s Center displaying flora and fauna and a small gift shop.

For facts and figures and all sorts of behind-the-scenes information, take a red bus tour.  The red buses, or ‘jammers’ were brought into operation in the 1930′s as part of a National Park’s program for visitor transportation.  Whilst they have been phased out over the years in other parks, they remain a great way to view the Going to the Sun Road.  Recently converted to run on propane, the buses also provide an eco-friendly alternative.

However you choose to travel, there will always be something to inspire you to return.  We guarantee it!
