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.
How to Get There
My friends and my wife stayed there from 8/25 -9/1 (18-20 of us). The Lodge was amazing and in perfect location. From front desk to valet, restaurant and boat rentals was absolutely great....We rented two pontoon boat three days in a row and it was the best experience ever.
My wife and I have traveled all over the world and both agree The Lodge at Whitefish Lake is one of the best vacation spots we have ever visited. Every Lodge employee we had contact with were friendly and totally accommodating.The Glacier National Park tour scheduled by the Lodge Concierge was an amazing experience. We both have nothing but positive remarks to make about our visit to the Lodge.
The Lodge rescued me in the middle of the night (2:00AM). I abruptly had to leave another hotel I was staying at because of issues with the sheets, and mattress. I won't go into that. The very kind gentleman at the Lodge At Whitefish Lake was able to find me one of their condos that was vacant. WOW!!! The condo is lovely. Clean, clean, clean, roomy, comfortable, with a fantastic view of the lake at my back doorstep. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen well equipped. Tastefully decorated. This would be a great room for entertaining. On the balcony there is a grill and a small table with 4 chairs. The staff have treated me with respect, as well as being super friendly. Lounge and restaurant on site. Beach and marina. Business center. Fitness center. Kids camp. gift shop.Laundry facilities. Pool and hot tub. Spa. Walking trails. Wedding pavilion. Close to town, minutes to the ski slopes and a short drive to Glacier Park. The Lodge At Whitefish Lake will be my go-to place every time I'm in Whitefish. (9 or 10 times a year.)
