The Lodge at Whitefish Lake

The Lodge At Whitefish Lake

As I mentioned in my last post, Whitefish Montana, I was pretty excited to stay in a lodge as most of our travel is done in the camping world. Boss Man’s idea of a hotel is “hook ups” in a campground. He’s pretty rustic, if you know what I mean. While he LOVES to CAMP, I just love to camp, I like me some hook ups too!

So when I heard we were going to stay in a lodge I was over the top excited, but when I went online to see where we were staying,  I didn’t find much and was…disappointed.

Then We Arrived At The Lodge At White Fish Lake

If I could have done a back flip in the front seat of the car, I would have! If the charming drive through the town of Whitefish didn’t get me stirred up enough, The Lodge at Whitefish Lake did! Again, I don’t want to rely on words, but hopefully some photos that will inspire you to add this to your bucket list. To me a pictures speaks a thousand words.

Saddle up, let’s go!

Everything is decorated so beautifully for Christmas, and this is the week after New Years. I am completely over the top thrilled. This is the check in area. Beautiful wood and fixtures everywhere.

And seriously, who doesn’t love a Santa Hat wearing grizzly bear in the lodge entry?

The Rooms At The Lodge At Whitefish Lake Were Amazing!

My only regret is that I did not take more photos of our room. The reason I didn’t is because we are messy, even with daily maid service, which was a real treat for this busy mom!

Every detail of the room was perfect, from the soft down comforter topped with an adorable teddy bear and Denali fleece blanket, to the sliding wooden barn doors between the bathroom and sleeping area. The bathroom was beautiful, it had rustic tiles, a large relaxing tub and shower. A coffee maker, fridge and microwave came in very handy after a long day of hitting the slopes, some nights after a great day of skiing we were too tired to go out for dinner. The large wardrobes were so spacious, complete with soft fluffy white robes to use while visit the pool and spa. Just what ones needs after a day of skiing,  speaking of skiing, in my next post I will be writing about Whitefish Mountain Resort, a quick 10 minute drive from The Lodge At Whitefish Lake.

Overall, our stay at The Lodge At Whitefish Lake was top notch, no detail went unnoticed. The staff was exceptional, especially when I left my phone charger in the room and called them 10 times to see if they found it. They offered to bring it to the airport for me. What service! We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. If I were a rating type of gal, I would rate it at 5 STARS! Will we go back? Yea!! That would be YES! Hopefully the photos have convinced you to add this to your bucket list. What’s on your bucket list, would love to hear! Drop a comment now. Thanks for stopping by, until next time Happy, Healthy Trails!

PS I recently Googled The Lodge At Whitefish Lake, and guess what, they must have updated their website, it now reflects the unique and special qualities that this beautiful lodge has to offer.
