    A wonderful gem in Whitefish! The beds were luxurious, we slept great! A huge hot tub, had it mostly to myself. Treat yourself to a decadent meal at Kandahar Cafe. The yak carpaccio is not to be missed!

    You are right. Your experience was not acceptable. We have shared your comment with our staff and have initiated some additional guest service training efforts.

    Kandahar Lodge is a little expensive, but totally worth it. The location is very nice, and the rooms are lovely and cozy. The ski slope is right behind the lodge, so you can walk to the lift; it would be a great place to stay...More

    Charlotte H
    Is Lodge at Whitefish Lake or Kandahar Lodge at Whitefish mountain a better location for a family traveling with a 5 yrs old. Our daughter will need to attend ski school, so we would prefer to be close to the school/chair lift area. Which would be a better choice for good location? thanks :)
