Ahhh, summer...awaited with breathless anticipation and, in a blink, all too soon disappearing in the rear view mirror. But don't despair, it is the start of a beautiful autumn in Swan Lake and we are eeking out every last ounce of sunshine and adventure!
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.

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.
