An Exciting Mountain Town Surrounded by Impressive Scenery

Located just outside Glacier National Park, Whitefish is an exciting mountain town surrounded by some of the most impressive scenery on the entire continent. June is the perfect time to visit, with lush, green valleys framed by grandiose snowcapped peaks. Lovers of the outdoors will find plenty to do. Rafting, fishing, hiking, biking, horseback tours, and sightseeing are all popular among both locals and visitors alike. In town, you'll find an abundance of galleries, boutiques, craft breweries, and dining options. Just outside of town, you'll find Whitefish Mountain Resort, a popular summer destination with a vast array of outdoor activities offering panoramic views of the valley below. Stay with us at Grouse Mountain Lodge and find out why this wild and scenic region is known as the Crown of the Continent.

It's true what they say, all work and no play is never a good plan! So join the fun, experience something unique, make new connections, or reunite with old friends.
