We chose Kandahar Lodge as we liked the idea of the Kitchen Loft Suites and also thinking that being up the side of a mountain we would have views of mountains and the lake at Whitefish. We were very happy with our Suite but be warned there are no views! This lodge is a good distance out of town and up a mountain but it's in a dip which means no views.
Having said that - the lodge itself was very nice, the service friendly and helpful. We arrived too late to get anything to eat and the lady behind the bar in the snug kindly directed us to a couple of places that would still be serving at that time.
The Kitchen Loft Suite was adequate for the three of us - although they are pushing it slightly to get two very large beds in the loft space! Watch your head on the ceiling and your toes on the beds! Very comfortable though.
Downstairs there was a very nice seating and kitchen area. There was a slightly small bathroom with a sink area outside - which was very oddly placed right at the door of the suite - which meant if anyone opened the door while you were at the sink then you would be seen from the corridor!
As pointed out by several people - there is no elevator - so make sure you are fit enough to carry all your bags up the flights of stairs! We were on the third floor!
Breakfast was functional - although with a very small seating area - goodness knows how they manage when it's busy. We did not eat in their dinner restaurant but chose to try out restaurants in the town of Whitefish.
If - like us - you are aiming to go back and forward to Glacier National Park - do be warned that it's quite a distance!
Whitefish was a lovely town with all the amenities that you would expect and a real nice feel to it. A good base for the surrounding area.
