I surprised my wife with a weekend stay at this wonderful location. We had been here once before, in the summer, and loved it. This trip, right before Valentines Day, was a surprise to my wife and I combined it with a business trip in Missoula.
The room we had was HUGE and brought big smiles to our faces from the moment we entered the room. A wonderful fireplace (needs a bearskin rug..haha). VIEW was AWESOME! Looked over the courtyard and into the lake. We enjoyed the spa the following morning, even though it snowed. What a great experience!
One of the things I like the best about this lodge, is that there is both a Pub and a Nice Restaurant on site! I dont get to drink when we go out for dinner as I am the driver. However, here I could. Try the Long Island Ice Teas...they are KILLER! Meal at the pub our first night was good and reasonably priced. We had the Prime Rib Sunday Buffet the next morning, and could barely move afterwards. It was SOOO good! My only recommendation, is that if you stay for the Sunday Brunch, stay another night so you don't have to drive with a full belly! I would have rather had a nice nap and another jaunt in the spa!
You cannot imagine how difficult it is to surprise your wife after 26 years, and this lodge delivered! THANKS!
