Montana Wellness Guide

 

 

When the Wild West calls, we couldn’t think of a more raw and beautiful place to head then Montana.  And from Glacier National Park in the North and Yellowstone National Park bordering the South, our hearts burst at the stunning scenery and natural backdrop of this state.  In fact, we’d venture to say that every turn you make offers a panoramic view that is Instagram worthy!

Eat

Whitefish

Buffalo Café:  All American fare and the perfect stop to refuel after morning hiking.  Try the Huevos and Huckleberry pie!

Montana Coffee Traders:  The local coffee spot.  Perfect for that coffee date.

Stumptown Marketplace:  Downtown market featuring select restaurant and store pop ups with a focus on made in Montana local products and food.  We love the Pig and Olive Sandwich Shoppe for a quick bite.

Great Northern Bar and Grill:  Classic bar with live music, shuffleboard, and ping-pong.

Tupelo Grille:  For a taste of the South out West.  Fine dining at it’s best and perhaps one of Montana’s best.

Glacier National Park

Glacier Highland:  Just outside of West Glacier entrance, cute café and market.  You’ll find a wide selection of soups, salads, and traditional American fare.  We’ve also heard their desserts are coveted.  

Lake McDonald Lodge:  Russell’s Fireside Dining Room:  Hearty post trail food with possibly the best view on the lake.


Stay

Lodge at Whitefish Lake:  Traditional and cozy lodge right on the stunning Whitefish Lake, and minutes from downtown Whitefish.  We loved the Western themed rooms and grand lobby with toasty stone fireplace, perfect for those cold Montana nights.

Glacier Under Canvas:  Right outside of Glacier National Park, glamping at it’s finest.  Each safari tent has the cutest en suite bathroom, wood stove, and luxurious bedding.  We also loved the hot chocolate in the community tent in the mornings.

Lake McDonald Lodge:  Located on stunning Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park, this historic Swiss chalet style lodge has a variety of lodging options and possibly one of the best views in the park.

Further Afield

Paws Up:  Perhaps the Grande Dame of Glamping.  5 star luxury + all-inclusive resort.  

Grey Cliffs Ranch:  We’re pretty partial to this private ranch set on 6400 acres of rolling land in southern Montana.  With a private chef, luxurious accommodations, and the Madison River minutes away, what’s not to love?

Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge:  All-inclusive dude ranch set amidst 2000+ acres of untouched land and with beautiful Flathead Lake as a backdrop.


Explore


Shops

Whitefish Lake:  Right outside of Whitefish, this beautiful lake with the mountains as a backdrop offers all of your water adventures from SUP, kayaking, and boating.

Scenic Drive:  You can’t miss the Glacier “Going to the Sun Road” from Lake McDonald to cross the Continental Divide.  Not for the faint of heart, but worth every jaw dropping switch back.

Hiking:  So many trails to choose from, and with Glacier National Park minutes away chat with the Park Rangers and get their recommendations on where to head, and a bear update!

Jaunt

Flathead Lake:  Some of the most pristine lake waters that we have seen.  Stay for a while, but be forewarned you may end up extending your vacation in lieu of more stillness and solitude.  

Big Sky:  Some come for the slopes in winter others the trails in summer, but one thing’s for sure; we’ve never seen a more incredible night sky.

Bozeman:  Cute southern Montana town complete with historic Main Street filled with cafes, shops, and outfitters.  A great home base for southern Montana adventure activities from skiing, biking, and hiking.
