Kootenai Lodge—The Return Of A Legend.

The Kootenai community is steeped in historic significance. The hero of this fable by the lake is the Grand Kootenai Lodge.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it has been described as one of the most perfect examples of rustic log architecture ever created. The lodge was designed in the Adirondack Camp style of the early 20th century. Its architect, Kirtland Cutter, earlier showed his genius in creating the legendary Lake McDonald Lodge in nearby Glacier National Park.

Meticulously restored utilizing its original timbers, stone and hardwoods, the Grand Kootenai Lodge is the central gathering place for the families that make their homes here.

Beneath its soaring ceilings are ideal places and spaces for everything from intimate gatherings and large parties to lavish weddings and family reunions. All in all, a dazzling stage on which to create your family’s most cherished memories.

It is also the ideal venue for relaxing with a novel on the covered porch and sharing the day's fish stories by the light of a crackling fire. There are comfortable sofas, a billiards table and piano, card and media rooms, a library plus a gorgeous bar with copper counter tops. Kids of all ages are invited to snack on frozen sweets at a charming walk-up ice cream counter.
