Overview

Rustic mountain lodge with in-room fireplaces, a marina and shuttle service to the slopes

The Lowdown

Set lakeside, this mountain lodge’s studio-style rooms spoil with rustic details like hardwood and slate-tiled floors, granite counters and leather button-back chairs by stone-framed gas fireplaces. The Boat Club restaurant serves hearty mountain fare like Wagyu beef doused in bacon and sun-dried tomato jam, and the dimly lit Boat Club Bar & Lounge has live music three days a week. The outdoor enthusiasts on the concierge team can arrange everything from ski lift tickets and zipline tours at the nearby Whitefish Mountain Resort, to a romantic cruise for two aboard a 31-foot motor yacht at the on-site marina. Just looking for a little R&R? They’ve got you covered with more than a dozen therapeutic treatments at the full-service spa.

In the Area

Drive 30 minutes to Glacier National Park’s 700 miles of hiking, biking and cross-country trails with such rare species as mountain goats, Canadian lynx and the endangered grizzly bear. For expansive panoramas, hike the trails at Jewel Basin, a 15,000-acre national forest area, about 40 miles south. Fuel up for the mountain with huckleberry pancakes and hearty biscuits and gravy at Buffalo Cafe. Or head to Mountain-Mexican fusion restaurant Pescado Blanco, where must-orders include wild game dishes like the ancho-chile flatiron steak with caramelized onions, smoked red pepper sauce and cotija cheese. With nine 18-hole championship courses, Whitefish is as big of a golf destination as it is a mountain town — tee off on the bank of Flathead Lake at Eagle Bend Golf Course or take in views of Glacier National Park at the Glacier View Golf Course. Top it all off with a sample of 12 ales and lagers at The Great Northern Brewing Co. in downtown Whitefish.

Beautiful place to stay! Rooms are clean and very comfortable! Dinner at the Boat Club restaurant was delicious and the staff was helpful and kind! Perfect getaway for any occasion. Lots of stuff to do in Whitefish and the surrounding area.

really nice hotel
Reviewed 6 days ago

Room was very nice, beds comfortable. Had a mini fridge. Indoor pool and hot tub. Skybridge between the buildings. Food in the restaurant was $$$$ but good. There is
a lounge with bar food. John Dunnigan was playing in the lounge and he was EXCELLENT. Worth booking when he is playing there.

The room is a little dark for me, but I ignored that.

They have a ski bus that runs frequently and rooms to store your equipment.

I am sure in the summer when the lake is not frozen there are other things to do there.

They have valet parking.

I love everything about this hotel

Our company has it's Christmas party here every year.
The food is fabulous! The prime rib melts in your mouth.
The rooms are amazing. They are large with extremely comfortable beds! The rooms have a fireplace, fridge, microwave, robes, flipflops and 6 foot long bath towels. The slate shower is separate from the tub and the bathrooms are spacious. They also have in-room items to purchase at very reasonable prices...popcorn, snickers, gummybears etc.
2 pools with waterfalls...1 indoor one out and 2 large hot tubs in nicely landscaped environments
I cannot say enough great things about this hotel.

Excellent Holiday Experience
Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed at the Lodge from Christmas to New Years. While occasionally service was slow in the restaurant, it was not unreasonably so given the Holiday rush. The facilities were excellent, the rooms very comfortable and the Lodge shuttle was convenient to everywhere we wanted to get. It would have also been nice for the coffee shop to open earlier, but again that is preference not a complaint.

Loved everything about it.

We spent 6 nights over Xmas and just loved every moment. Our room had a view of the lake and also a fireplace. The restaurant for breakfast had a wonderful menu and so reasonably priced. The servyings were huge. Having the little coffee shop was also a bonus. We also used the free shuttle bus into the town.
