hotels that you'll do well to consider when making your Whitefish travel plans.
Staying in a sprawling mountain lodge will be the aim of some Whitefish visitors, and if your budget allows, the Kandahar Lodge is a fine choice. An elegant lodge, the Kandahar rests atop the beautiful Whitefish Mountain Resort, where skiing is king in the winter months, and hiking, biking, and a number of other pursuits can be enjoyed in the summer. There are different guest units to choose from at the Kandahar Lodge, and if you're trying to keep your costs down, the hotel rooms are ideal. Tiled bathrooms, pine accents, and leather furniture help to add an upscale feel to these rooms, and the soaking tubs are terrific after a full day of playing in the mountains. The studio units here are a step up from the hotel rooms, and feature kitchens for your convenience. You'll also enjoy the use of a private kitchen if you book one of the larger loft rooms, kitchen suites, or two-bedroom suites. Standard amenities throughout include cable TV, a coffee maker, a hair dryer, complimentary toiletries, guest robes, a iron/ironing board, a mini-fridge (or full fridge), a microwave, and a telephone. Free wireless internet access is offered in most rooms and in the hotel's meeting rooms and lobby. There is a small spa behind the Kandahar Lodge, and the hotel's Wellness Center features an outdoor hot tub and a large fitness room. Wild game and even some fresh seafood is on offer at the onsite café, and the cozy hotel bar is an excellent place to kick back. If the Kandahar Lodge interests you, the Lodge at Whitefish Lake is a comparable lodging choice that might suit your fancy as well.
If staying in a cabin is something that you think you'll be interested in when spending some time in the Montana Rocky Mountains, the 22 individual cabins at the North Forty Lodge are worth checking out. There are cabins here that sleep up to 5 people comfortably, and others that can accommodate up to 8, so you can choose accordingly. Among the things that each cabin boasts are a covered porch, a picnic table, and a barbecue grill, so it's almost like having your own small house. Inside, a gas fireplace, a full kitchen, and handcrafted furniture are among the highlights. The kitchens lack ovens, but the grills help to make up for that. The cabins at the North Forty Lodge aren't luxurious, but they're hardly shabby either. Guests enjoy the fact that they afford more privacy than your standard hotel room does. Outside of the cabins, guests at the North Forty Lodge can take advantage of the amenities at the Snowberry Center. These amenities include a full kitchen with ovens, two hot tubs, a recreation area, a sauna, a campfire area, and access to some fine hiking trails. The North Forty Lodge is an excellent lodging option for anyone wishing to visit Whitefish, not to mention the nearby towns of Kalispell and Bigfork.
Doing a bit of horseback riding in Montana is something that many visitors have high on their lists, and you can do plenty of it at the Bar W Guest Ranch, which offers 6 rooms in its main lodge and 2 larger suites in its finely-crafted cabin. The Bar W Guest Ranch is located on 100 acres that rest on the shores of Spencer Lake. In addition to the onsite riding facility, visitors can hop on a horse and explore the many trails that cover the grounds. As for the rooms and the cabin suites, most boast their own bathrooms, and the rooms that share a bathroom can help you save on rates. The amenities in the rooms and suites here vary quite a bit, so you can choose accordingly. All are tastefully-decorated and well-furnished, which helps to create a more homey feel. Whether you need advice on nearby Glacier National Park or just need to run into town for some provisions, the staff will be happy to help you out. It's that attention to guests that helps to make the Bar W Guest Ranch one of the better Whitefish hotels.
The hotels listed above aren't exactly ideal fits for those who are seeking cheap Whitefish lodging. They aren't the most expensive hotels in the area either. In any event, those looking to save up some money on rates can always stay at one of the Whitefish motels. The Sleep Cheap Motel and the Super 8 Whitefish are among the better choices for cheap Whitefish lodging. If you can spend a tad extra when it comes to the Whitefish Motels, the Chalet Motel deserves a look. Found on the southern edge of town, the Chalet Motel is close to everything, and since the relatively low rates can help you free up some funds, you'll have more left over for white water rafting adventures, dining experiences, and other travel-related pursuits. Comfortable beds and extra fluffy towels help to make for delightful stay here, and other in-room amenities include cable TV, a telephone, complimentary wireless internet access, a microwave, a coffee maker, and a mini-fridge, so you should have everything that you'll need. Great rooms aren't the only thing that helps to make the Chalet Motel a top pick when it comes to the Whitefish motels. There's also an indoor pool and hot tub here, and if you're in town to do some skiing, the free ski shuttle picks up passengers just across the street.
