Winter at the Historic Tamarack Lodge!

November 26th, 2010 by HTL

Each season brings its own rewards in our corner of northwest Montana.  Winter brings the snow and holiday landscapes like no other.  Our facility is plowed on a daily basis to ensure your safety and, as we are right on Highway 2 which is also regularly plowed, we are also safely accessible.  Taking the train?  Ask us about transportation.

Once you are here there is plenty to do.  Snowshoes are available from front desk staff – take a trip to the beaver pond behind our property, or venture into Glacier National Park or the Flathead National Forest Trails.

For cross-country skiers there is also an abundance of possibilities with groomed trails all around us. That’s 1,000,000 acres of Glacier National Park and 3,000,000 acres of National Forest and Wilderness area…we dare you to get bored with that!

Nearby Whitefish caters to every level of downhill skier or snowboarder as well as offering apres ski at the top of the mountain or in the picturesque town below whereas Blacktail Mountain offers uncrowded slopes and a family atmosphere at reduced rates.  Ski them both and tell us your preference!

We have snowmobiles!  We work closely with local rental firms to ensure you are provided the levels of service we pride ourselves on at the lodge.  New for this year is the opening of the Desert Mountain trailhead to guided snowmobiling.  Treat yourself to panoramic views of Glacier National Park from the summit, then wind your way back down the trail to the frozen reservoir at Emory Bay.  A great family trip, even better taken by moonlight.

Too much activity?  Not a problem!  Stay with us and enjoy the tranquility and relaxation that is unique to Winter in our area of the world.  Enjoy a hot chocolate while sinking into the armchair at the lodge with a good book.  Read about our history or enjoy a Western romance novel, whatever you choose.

Its your vacation … let us help you plan your dream getwaway, whether its a retreat from the stresses and strains of everyday life, a romantic winter weekend away from the kids, or a family snow sports vacation, we can help.

Don’t leave all the fun til Summer!

Columbia Falls

March 19th, 2010 by HTL

The closest small town to the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins, Columbia Falls, is located at the entrance of the Canyon, the Gateway to Glacier National Park.

For the kids, there is Pinewood Aquatic Park, with outdoor pool; the Big Sky Waterpark with its chutes and slides; and two great playparks.  For the adults there are antique stores, and plenty of places to dine.  Why not try the Three Forks Grill for a great evening out ?

In the Summer months there is a fantastic weekly Farmer’s Market selling local produce and showcasing local musicians.

In the Winter, take your snowmobile out on over 80 miles of groomed trails via the Canyon Creek Trailhead or rent from one of our local outfitters.

Celebrate Heritage Days the last week end in July with a Rodeo, Parade, Craft Fair, Car Show, Basketball 3-on-3 Tournament and 5K & 10K Runs.

Or, take a trip back in time via an alternative route to Glacier National Park by following the North Fork Road to the Camas Creek Park Entrance. A twenty mile drive following the North Fork River there are plenty of opportunities for photography and fishing. Be warned – the last nine miles of the roadway are not paved !

Just a few miles from your accommodation at the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins, add Columbia Falls to your itinerary for a great day out !
