Kandahar Lodge is absolulely lovely and luxurious but it is around 5 miles + from White Fish Lake at the foot of Big Mountain Ski Area. (We had thought it was at the Lake for some reason and was disappointed that we had to drive so far to get to the lodge but ultimately loved the comfort we experienced). The rooms were beautifully decorated & had 2 comfortable leather club chairs (typically you find only 1 chair in a hotel room, if that many) to recline in so you didn't have to sit on the bed to read or relax. They have no king beds, by the way. And the queen beds are resting on a high platform making it a bit difficult to access without a step stool if you are infirm. Overall, the room was great from a decor perspective, had great toiletries & very quiet. The main complaint is that the food is excellent but very pricey (and you are somewhat stuck with eating at the lodge if you don't want to drive back to White Fish for dinner). We opted for "bar" style food as the "5 Star" restaurant on the premise was just way over our budget, and it was still a fortune, relatively speaking. But we ate in the main lobby in a really cushy leather sofa with a roaring fire before us and it turned out to be delightful, all and all. The staff was very accomodating as well. Breakfast was adequate althought for the price of the room, we expected a bit more quality of food than the "Western Family" yogurt and plain white bread, plain bagels (no pastries or croissants), bananas and ho-hum boxed cereal that were offered.
