Many thanks to the entire staff at Kandahar Lodge for helping to create such a wonderful weekend. I live in Whitefish and got a room for a couple of friends and I to celebrate closing weekend at Big Mountain. We cooked, hot tubbed, skied, laughed and had an all-around awesome time while we were there. The staff didn't seem to...

What a great idea to treat you and your friends to a final weekend sleep over at Kandahar! I agree that that kind of fun justifies becoming an annual event. Thank you for writing this review to let others know of your experience.

My daughter and I enjoyed a late winter ski trip to Whitefish Mt. Resort and stayed at the Kandahar Lodge for the week. Amenities were first-rate and the staff was accommodating throughout our stay. Our room was cozy and comfortable and we especially enjoyed dining at the Snug Bar and the Lodge's Café. A return visit is a must!

My nephews, friends and I had a terrific time. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The included breakfast had plenty of everything. We ate each night in the lodge main room in front of the fire off the bar menu. The burgers were great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had incredible snow, and having skied many places in...

Thanks for taking the time to write this wonderful review. We agree that the mountain is a secret delight that not too many people know about. Having such a great snow year was a gift as well! Hope you will make it back to stay with us again.

My buddy and I skied The Big Mountain for four days. We started looking for places to stay about a month before our scheduled trip and came across the Kandahar. We had no idea what the place was like but after reading the reviews we decided to take a chance - and we were VERY glad we did. This is...

Janice and I came to the Kandahar for a ski trip. I had won a three night stay with 6 days of lift tickets. We would defininately come back for a return visit. The staff was friendly and the room was out of this world. The hot tub was awesome. Food was great.

The Kandahar staff was excellent! Very friendly, willing to help, and have a vast knowledge of the area. My only complaint is that they should offer a full service breakfast. The Snug bar was great, the Kandahar cafe is lovely, but it is a gormet dinning experience, not meant for a famiy on a budget, but worth the expense if...

Kandahar Lodge was really beautiful but the customer service experience was sub-par. The front desk men acted like we were an inconvenience and they weren't very helpful when it came to answering questions about parking, the restaurant, the hot tub, etc. We skied all day, went to dinner, got back to the hotel around 9:00 and the hot tub closes...

Thank you for taking the time to write the thoughtful review of your experience, Caitlin. I am sorry that you did not experience good guest service. We share all of these comments with our staff. The hot tub hours are usually until 10:30 pm so you were shorted some time there. We close then because the shift changes to night...

You are not just in a hotel but feel at home here! Great place to just"relax" for getting up in the morning and grabbing a coffee and sitting by the lobby huge fireplace or a long day on the hill to hit the steam room and hot pool! Total heaven.

We had an excellent stay at the Kandahar Lodge. Loved the room! We had a loft which was a much larger room than we needed for the two of us, but it would be a great room for a family on a ski vacation. In the evenings it was lovely to sit in the great room by the fire and...
