The drive to Kandahar Lodge is worth the trip in itself. The Lodge is warm and cozy(even in the summer when we visited), with an eager to please staff. All the staff were very helpful in helping us plan some day excursions. Our room was very clean, spacious, and most of all quiet. In the summer(I'm not sure about the winter), they give you vouchers towards breakfast, which by the way was absolutely delicious.
They also serve dinner, although a little pricey, we did treat ourselves one night, and it was well worth it. Although not much goes on in the summer on Big Mountain, there was still activities to keep us busy on some of our down time. There's a Walk in the Tree Tops that I thought was very interesting, mountain biking down the slopes, a ride to the top of Big Mountain for great views, and a few gift shops to bring home some unnecessary knick knacks. Although the ride to Kandahar Lodge takes about 20 minutes from downtown Whitefish, it's well worth the drive. I am looking forward to one day to spending time there during the busy ski season(even though I don't ski)to soak up the atmostphere.
