The Lodge looks like a scene from a Christmas storybook, decorated from top to bottom with ornate snowflakes, Douglas Firs covered in sparkling lights and ornaments, and even warm cookies in the lobby to make your spirits bright.
This Holiday Season, make memories creating gingerbread houses with the little ones in the afternoon or hiking the Candy Cane Trail through the peaceful Nature Preserve. Kids of all ages are welcome to warm up by the fire and listen to a classic Christmas story in the afternoon or enjoy one of our family friendly movie screenings. Each night, enjoy cocktails at the outdoor Ice Bar under the stars or a horse-drawn wagon ride the whole family will remember.
It is a magical time at The Lodge at Whitefish Lake and there are plenty of opportunities to make new holiday traditions and memories with your loved ones!
