Trip Advisor Review

This cozy lodge is a great place for both couples and families and has a country European vibe while still being very much Montana. The Snug Bar is a perfect place to pop in for a glass of wine or casual dinner and the restaurant is outstanding. This place has it all without being pretentious.

 “Comfy with great service!”

Trip Advisor Review

“The lodge is charming, it feels like you’re walking into a cozy mountain chalet where you will relax with family. There’s a beautiful large living room sitting area with several sofas and stuffed chairs, a beautiful fireplace and even a tiny bar to get a cocktail while you relax and enjoy the ambience. The welcome was gracious, the staff was cordial and efficient. Our room was on the second floor, and like others have stated they do not have an elevator. They offered to carry our luggage but the way I see it, this is a ski lodge, we can walk up the stairs. Shortly after settling into the room a housekeeper knocked on our door, just checking in to make sure everything was to our liking. From a customer service standpoint, they were top notch. The bed was super comfy. The bath area was updated and very clean. They have a nice built-in cabinet with mini fridge, microwave, real dishes and wine glasses. The outdoor hot tub was wonderful and very large to accommodate a lot of tired skiers at the end of the day. The continental breakfast was satisfying, similar to what you see in European lodges, many healthy options and some not so healthy options if you prefer… cereal, breads, fruit, yogurt, sliced meats and cheese. You can ski-in directly to the lodge. To start out in the morning you can walk 150 yds downhill across a parking lot to catch the Home Again Trail that takes you to Chair 6 and the main ski area Base Lodge or you can take a shuttle. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.”
