While the Horse slumbers under several feet of snow, we're off exploring the SouthWest, visiting exceptional chef-centric restaurants and gathering ideas and recipes for the 2014 season.
Re-dedicating ourselves to providing the freshest organic produce and all natural proteins, we're also garnering new suppliers from around the West, keeping as close to home as we possibly can.
When the Horse re-opens on Mother's Day Weekend, you're in for some very tasty additions to the menu...and don't worry, we're keeping your favorites too!

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 Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks providing a perfect base for year-round 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 on the back deck, 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 pub.

  • A cozy pub with wood stove, library, games, music and satellite TV with DVD.
  • A well-respected dining room featuring organic and authentic Western fare with a global touch. [Check out our rave reviews at tripadvisor.com
  • A private garden perfect for relaxing after a strenuous day fishing or hiking.
  • 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.
