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!
