Summer in northwest Montana offers unbelievable opportunities for hiking, biking, and sightseeing in Glacier National Park, golfing on any of 9 championship golf courses in the area, or a variety of water activities ranging from whitewater rafting to fishing, boating, sailing, swimming, or jet skiing in one of our clear blue freshwater lakes. If you just feel like hanging around the Lodge, you can indulge yourself with an in-room massage, a swim in our indoor pool, or a glass of wine while kicking back in one of our outdoor Jacuzzis. If you just need some down time, curl up with a good book in our comfortable, well-appointed lobby while your family plays tennis, volleyball, or horseshoes using the complimentary equipment from our concierge. They might also enjoy taking a chair lift ride to the top of Whitefish Mountain Resort. The valley-wide views are spectacular, and picking huckleberries can be an unforgettable experience!
