A true old-style, big-log, huge-fireplace lodge on a lake with forest all around. Like camping, no TVs, phones, bare bones rooms -- but four stars for rugged ambiance back in the days when people weren't spoiled rotten. Play board games around the massive fireplace in the community room, rocking chairs all around. The lodge has plenty of non-electronic games. Learn...

If you are in the area of Kalispell or Whitefish or Columbia Falls, Montana and have one day available, I can recommend a short drive (1 hour or less) to touch on the wonders of Glacier National Park.

Staying here felt like stepping back in time to a very romantic alpine setting. So secluded. So natural. So retro.

My friends and I stayed at the cabins one night on our trip to Glacier. The cabins were perfect. We were maybe 100 ft from the Lake. If you are going to Glacier, I think you know you will not get wifi or cell signal or TV in your room. However, the location more than makes up for the lack...

“Our room faced the lake which was quite nice, though there are trees in your view. There are no elevators, but bell hop was available.”
PFChotapani, 21 Oct 2016 | Read review
“North side rooms have the lake view. If interested in a cabin, the higher numbers are further away from the lodge, along a paved sidewalk.”
