Whitefish, Montana

Less than 30 minutes drive from your accommodation at The Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins is the picturesque town of Whitefish.

A 30min drive from The Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins.

Originally a railroad town, Whitefish is now probably better known for its ski resort on Whitefish Mountain.  In the Winter months there is plenty of winter sports activity whether on the downhill ski slopes or snowmobiling the mountains beyond. Down from the mountain the town is served by the historic Amtrak station and a number of boutique shops, restaurants and bars for apres ski.

In the Summer months, Whitefish Mountain turns into an adventure playground of a different kind with zip line tours, an alpine slide and a boardwalk high in the treetops. There are many opportunities for water sports on Whitefish Lake, and to bask in the beauty of the surroundings on the City Beach.  An abundance of local produce is available at the weekly Farmer’s Market, and, as an artist’s town, there are numerous opportunities for Art Walks of the many galleries. Let your own creativity flow at the Stumptown Art Studio and paint your own pottery to take home as a unique souvenir of your stay, then round off your day by returning home to an evening of hospitality at the lodge.
