This was a great find. Bang for buck the rooms are fantastic with really excellent showers. The food is good and the staff are really friendly. There is a great dining room with a fire. A separate bar area is good to make some noise in and is lively. Wifi is quite average however

Beautiful lodge with yummy food! Loved the much needed stop for lunch and gas on the scenic highway 12 which runs along the Lochsa river, one of Idaho's wild rivers. The lodge has a great deck out the back and it has just the perfect amount of sun and shade. Not to mention the fire pit and the possibility of...

The Lochsa Lodge pretty well has a monopoly on food and lodging west of the Lolo Pass. fortunately, it offers good food in a beautiful location. We lunched on the back deck under a cedar tree, with the sound of the river as accompaniment. Our sandwiches were very good. Service was friendly, although a little slow.

It is so beautiful and quaint here. The lodge is great with good breakfast. Right on the river and in the mountains. The winding mountain road to get there is stunning. The rustic cottage/cabins are perfect. Great place to stay!

For anyone driving or riding Lolo pass, this is the perfect place to stop for a quick meal or an overnight. The rooms/cabins are clean and spacious with all the usual amenities. The restaurant has efficient friendly staff and a good selection of foods and drink. We will stay here again.

Beautiful evening drive up Highway 12 over Lolo Pass to the Lochsa Lodge for dinner out. Sat on the deck outside and service was excellent. Went with the intention of having a burger (they have great burgers) but ended up eating the "special" instead. The special was a chicken dish and it was just ok and left feeling like I...

We camped for free here the night before we bicycled over Lolo Pass. They allow bicyclist to camp for free on the spacious lawn behind the store. Use of the bathrooms was free as well. Wonderful warm showers were well worth the $5. The store is well stocked. The restaurant serves decent food. I really enjoyed the huckleberry pancake.

The restaurant is very comfortable and friendly. The breakfast menu is extremely good. we split an order of an omelet with a plate size huckleberry pancake and had more than we needed. We did not stay at the lodge, rather toured over to Idaho from Lolo and the trip was beautiful

I did not stay in the Lodge but did enjoy meals (for 14 days) at the resturant. Christopher, Jason, Ted, Dave and Carson are the cooks/CHEFS for the palce. I tell you what, I have NEVER been fed so well on an assignment. These chefs are great and if you need a place to eat between Kooskia and Missoula check...
