What it's like

Picturesque. Charming. Welcoming. Those are the kinds of descriptions that will run through your mind as you approach the inviting Mountain Lake Lodge. Drink in the elegant, ranch-style architecture and gorgeous, hand-crafted wood details and décor on your approach to the property. Step into the grand lobby and admire its river rock fireplace. That focal point is just one of many memorable features that pays homage to the great state of Montana. Everywhere you go at the lodge, you’ll appreciate the sense of history, heritage and hospitality that define this region.
