It's a Dog's Life at the lodge this Spring!

Hey Fido, its time to shake off those winter blahs! So grab your tennis ball and your humans and head to beautiful Swan Lake for two days of hiking, kayaking or just relaxing in our daffodil-laden garden. 

You and your two-legged companions will enjoy two nights of lodging in one of our cozy queen rooms* with Welcome dog cookies; savory hot breakfasts each morning with free-flowing Montana Coffee Traders French Roast; and four course gourmet dinners with a personally-selected bottle of wine each evening. And best of all, there is a no-host toy basket for your play in our beautiful (and secure) courtyard! 

All of this tail-wagging joy for only $299.
So grab those creatures with opposable thumbs and have them make your reservation today.

About the Area and the Horse -
For centuries the Swan has played host to a colorful variety of explorers and adventures seeking solitude or wealth in its rugged mountains and cascading streams. As you hike the Mission Mountains Wilderness or leisurely kayak on Swan Lake, listen to the wind and you may hear the echoed voices of trappers and wilderness homesteaders. Today, the Swan still welcomes adventurers and explorers from around the world seeking an outdoor experience that is uniquely Montana.

Laughing Horse Lodge is nestled at the base of the Swan Range and the Bob Marshall Wilderness at the southern end of Swan Lake. We are conveniently located on Montana Highway 83, between Missoula and Kalispell (Yellowstone and Glacier National Park)s providing a perfect base for three-season outdoor adventure in Glacier Country. Air travelers fly into Kalispell's Glacier International Airport, located 35 miles from the Lodge, or into Missoula - a beautiful 2 hour drive from the Lodge.

Enjoy the summer twilight in the quiet garden, and when the fall air begins to chill, snuggle up with a good book and a hot toddy or spin some tall tales in the library/pub.

  • A cozy library with wood stove, games, music, WiFi and Smart TV.
  • A well-respected dining room featuring organic and authentic Western fare with a global touch. [Check out our rave reviews at
  • A private garden perfect for relaxing after a strenuous day fishing or hiking our local trails or Glacier Park.
  • Eight overnight guest rooms each with private entry and bath. Sorry, no TVs, phones or alarm clocks in the rooms!  WiFi is available in the lodge. Cell service available within one mile.

The Lodge is perfect for small family reunions, weddings and corporate events. And of course, it is a delightfully quiet getaway for just the two of you and your dog. The Lodge is home to three Golden Retrievers, two cats and a loquacious African Gray - persons with severe alergies should consider staying at one of our fine pet-free hotels in Kalispell. Due to our intimate size, the Lodge environment is not conducive to infants.
