WhitefishOn our last family vacation to Glacier National Park we spent a couple of leisurely days enjoying the Lodge at Whitefish Lake.

This gorgeous lodge situated right on beautiful Whitefish Lake offers magnificent views of lake and peaks, and is the epitome of luxury, comfort, class and unpretentious appeal. All the rooms are beautifully decorated with a rustic comfortable yet upscale lodge style with timbers, granite and rock. The grounds are spectacular and include a gorgeous pool and a full service spa.

The proximity of The Lodge at Whitefish Lake to Glacier National Park makes this the perfect place to lay your head after a spectacular visit to one of the country’s most beautiful National Parks and then indulge in some pampering.

The dock at the lodge offers boats, rentals and water sports and the views are magnificent. We loved sitting by the fire pits at the edge of the lake and enjoyed the stars and faint, faraway sound of the train on the other side of the lake as it climbed the mountain.

The views from the pool and spa are astounding. Like much of Montana, the hospitality is impressive and this property’s proximity to Kalispell and its access to the Flathead Valley, make it a perfect location to enjoy so much of the spectacular natural beauty and splendor of the surrounding areas.

Nine area golf courses, swimming, boating and white water rafting are only a few activity options that families like ours partake in while savoring the luxury and hospitality of the lodge.

Allow plenty of time for the winding roads and spectacular routes that uncover many of its hidden geologic and wild wonders.

For an aesthetically unparalleled vacation, the Lodge at Whitefish Lake is a favorite for those fortunate enough to call Montana home as well as for those who are lucky enough to visit as often as possible.
