This B & B is excellent!! The Hosts made us feel right at home. We hated to leave to get dinner because it was so comfortable and enjoyable talking with the host and other guests. There were several areas to socialize and the evening hors de vours and choice of beer or wine was a pleasant surprise. It seemed everywhere we turned there were pleasant surprises!! We stayed in the suite because there were 2 couples. It was wonderful. The rooms were meticulously clean and welcoming. The bathrooms modern and like brand new. The breakfast was delicious!! If you need a place to stay in Whitefish this B & B is the place for you. Everytime I think of it, I smile. It was a highlight in our trip to Glacier! Cant wait to stay there again!! Thank you, wonderful hosts!!

The Good Medicine Lodge is a wonderful 'quiet' place to stay. The owners are very nice and accommodating. The room was very clean, bed was comfortable and cute décor. Breakfast was great and staff was so nice. We only wished we had arrived earlier in evening so we could relax a little more, our mistake...stayed too late at Glacier Nat'l Park, though that was good too. :-)

About 45 minutes from Glacier Park, Good Medicine Lodge is a wonderful place to use as headquarters for the area. Made to be a B&B all areas are perfect to either enjoy privacy or chat with other guests. Betsy's culinary expertise are only out done by Woody's easy personality and knowledge of the area. Beds are great and a wonderful nights sleep is easily attainable. Downtown Whitefish is about 1/2 mile away with nunmerous restaurants.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at Good Medicine Lodge. Betsy and Woody went above and beyond our expectations in every aspect. The food was incredible. From the endless supply of freshly baked cookies, superb hors d'oeuvres and drinks, and gourmet breakfasts. We enjoyed the freedom to choose among three different breakfast entrees each day. The lodge was outstanding for its beauty and comfort. There is a great deck with a fire ring, hot tub, and exquisite herb and flower garden. We were very close to all the best of Whitefish including dining, shopping, lake and mountain access. Betsy and Woody were gracious hosts with a keen sense of how to cater to their guests needs. They really go the extra mile. We are already planning a return trip to this wonderful B&B. Many rooms have their own decks with views of beautiful gardens and Big Mountain. From our deck we watched humming birds in the morning and the Big Sky sunset in the evening.

The hospitality, food, room and atmosphere at Good Medicine Lodge was truly extraordinary. Woody and Betsy were very gracious hosts and made us feel right at home. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family and will return for another stay when I am in Whitefish again.

We were at the lodge in Oct and found it to be delightful. The gormet breakfasts were a treat. We stayed a week and looked forward to the wonderful breakfasts everyday. Betsy and Woody are so friendly and loved our visits in the great room with a glass of wind and snacks. They saw to our every need. The view from the great room was very nice, even seeing deer grazing there. This was our first trip to Montana and Whitefish is such a quaint town and all of the wonderful places to eat. We would like to return someday to the relaxing atmosphere and wonderful hospitality. Thanks for an amazing stay. Eldon & Polly, San Antonio, Tx

The hosts are welcoming and helpful. The inn is beautifully decorated. We had a problem waiting for hot water, but they explained about that. For the price and since it is a bed AND breakfast, we anticipated a wonderful breakfasts. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. The first morning, we were served a tough pancake topped with a trout cake and A poached egg. There was also one muffin that was bland and dry. I had hopes for the next morning that were dashed when cantaloupe was brought in garnished with paper thin bacon? There was a crustless quiche that was undercooked, and so salty, with a coffee cake that was fine. There is dry cereal available which is a smart choice. The cookies are great! I have stayed at quite a few B & B's and the food has ranged from fine to great. A bed and breakfast should have 2 things. Great bed and great breakfast. Only half is 50% which is failing to most. Hopefully the food will be brought up to par with the rooms. I would then give it thumbs up!
There are two Standard Queen Rooms, each with one queen bed, vaulted wood ceilings and skylights in the bathrooms. All guests are invited to our full breakfast. A complimentary glass of wine or beer is offered each evening along with a light appetizer. All rooms have telephones, wireless high speed Internet, plush robes and are air conditioned. The Lodge has a guest computer, guest laundry, small theatre/library room with big screen TV and a hot tub on the porch with garden and mountain views.
