Ideal lodge to get away from the world
It has the rustic look, but with modern comfort and amenities. From welcome chocolates to the daily breakfast and apres ski cookies/popcorn/hot chocolate/tea/coffee/, together with a library which has books and up to date DVDs (in case of rainy/foggy days), to the crackling fireplace with real logs, steam room and outdoor hot tub as well as heated boot room, are all we need for a wonderful ski trip.
All the people working here are friendly and helpful to put us at ease. The free shuttle on call to take us to the base lodge and ski hill is highly appreciated even though we can walk out/ski in from the hotel. The real key is still used here instead of the swiping plastic card, and we can open the window for fresh air!
The only downside? of this place is the instability for the internet due to the mountain but that’s beyond their control. I actually think it may be a plus since it forced us to put down our cell phones and start talking to one another.

Loved this place!
Beautiful place! We were driving through Montana and stayed here for one night. We lucked out they had two rooms available. The lodge and rooms are beautiful and comfortable.
There is a restaurant on site that is very upscale. We were with our 18 year old son and his girlfriend so we opted to have a more casual dinning experience. We ordered food and ate in the lounge by the nice fireplace.
After the kids were done and went exploring, my husband and I had a few cocktails in the Snug bar. Snug it is! Three table that were for two or three people MAX and a handful of bar seats. It gets very loud. We were surprised the owner and his wife actually took up one of the tables to dine and drink while customers were standing and taking drinks back to the lounge since there were no available tables or places to stand in the Snug bar. The only reason why we knew they were the owners is because they were actually bragging to other people that were at the bar for a wedding party that they owned the Lodge. My husband and I managed to have a good snuggly time people watching with our cocktails. We ended the night with a delicious desert.
We would definitely stay at the lodge again if in the area.

Rustic luxury on Whitefish Ski Hill
Walk into a cozy extremely well kept wood frame building, a crackling fireplace to the left and a friendly welcoming staff behind the desk!
Easy check in, parking out front if you are lucky, heated ski and boot lockers and a hot tube apres ski.
The rooms were immaculate, quiet and well appointed.
We are in the lobby cafe and the food was excellent- elk stroganoff. Wish we could of stayed one more night to try the main dining, menu looked amazing!
Will do stay and ski again !
PS the skiing is fabulous, a January inversion so foggy down below but bright and sunny and warmer on top!

Great place to stay when Summer is too warm down below
Kandahar Lodge, though 600 miles from home, has Kandahar Restaurant, our "go to" restaurant for our Anniversary Dinner, prepared by Chef Andy Blanton.The Lodge is 1500 feet above the floor of Flathead Valley, offering cooler evening breezes in the Summer.The rooms are quiet and comparable to "better" accommodations at national chains

We visited on a sleepy day in September with seemingly very few other guests and the staff was super courteous and accommodating. Food was great and service was really personable. We will definitely be stopping by next time we are in the area.
