Absolutely the best of the best. The lodge becomes your home away from home as soon as Woody greets you at the door! He is the nicest man & can answer any question you have & offer fabulous advice about where to go, what to do, where to eat, where to shop.... The accommodations are first class .... the food divine ...

The Good Medicine Lodge was a delightful treat in every way. Making it our home base for a week in the Whitefish area, it provided easy access to the downtown Whitefish area, Glacier National Park, Banff and Jasper National Parks and the Kalispell International Airport. The accommodations were absolutely lovely and the gourmet breakfasts were outstanding. Woody and Betsy are warm hosts who anticipate needs and fill those needs immediately. Woody was especially helpful with information and recommendations for local restaurants, shops and attractions, and for activities available in the area/national parks. Betsy provided us with tasteful breakfasts and with afternoon appetizers. The staff members were very gracious and helpful and attentive to our needs. The grounds are lovely and provide many seating areas for meeting new friends and enjoying a glass of wine. The Good Medicine Lodge certainly lives up to its name, providing us with the badly needed rest and relaxation we needed in a lovely setting. Highly recommended.

Let me tell you I was extremely skeptical about staying at a B&B. I had never done it before and it always sounded awkward to me. However, my wife and I stayed here July of 2016 for our honeymoon and this was one of the single most enjoyable places we have ever been. We stayed in their Great Northern Suite and it is absolutely gorgeous! The breakfast is fantastic and Woody is a really wonderful host. Homemade cookies are out at all times and they have a lovely cocktail hour with fresh made appetizers. The grounds are spectacular and you can easily get lost in the relaxation. If you come to Whitefish all I can say is you are insane if you stay anywhere else! I can't thank them enough for making our stay perfect.

Once again our stay at GML was Top Notch. The owners, the room the whole experience to include evening goodies, HUGE cookies and an unbelievable breakfast menu leave you asking yourself when do I get to come back. They are a short drive to Glacier Park (especially if they give you the back road route), just 3/4 of a mile from the neat downtown area of Whitefish and there is a great restaurant just across the street. Thanks again Woody for a wonderful stay.
5 on October 11, 2015
This is our second time at the GML. Woody and Betsy are great hosts (this time Betsy was in Kentucky). They are right on top of everything without being on top of you. The Inn is close to Glacier Park and a short walk to downtown Whitefish with lots of stores and restaurants. There is also a lovely restaurant across the street. The B&B is spotless and the food (cookies as big as The Big Sky of Montana) snack, wine & beer in the afternoon and a wonderful breakfast make this the place to stay.

There's so many good things to say about this place!! We felt very much at home here. The owners were beyond friendly and hospitable! The food was top notch. Very clean gorgeous home. We will definitely be back again!

We stayed there on Aug.9 & 10,2014. What a wonderful place! The service was great and the food marvellous. Woody & Beth were very gracious hosts. We enjoyed everything about the place. If we get a chance we will certainly stay there again Lloydminter, Alberta, Canada

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. :-)
5 on October 29, 2012
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.
5 on November 04, 2011
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.
5 on October 31, 2011
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!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Good Medicine Lodge during our trip to Glacier National Park. Woody and Betsy were wonderful hosts and gave great advice on what to do during our visit. Our room was very welcoming and comfortable. The lodge is beautiful. We enjoyed sitting out back around the hot tub and enjoying the company of other guests. Breakfast was delicious. Definitely recommend staying with Woody and Betsy at their beautiful lodge.

Lovely B&B. Loved the setting, the innkeepers - Woody and Betsy - loved the food, our room was lovely and so comfy. Loved the porch and lovely yard, too!
5 on August 09, 2010
Betsy and Woody were wonderful and took good care of us. We were in Whitefish for our family reunion and we all stayed at Good Medicine. I loved breakfast - served in a pleasant breakfast room and oh so delicious. Lots of nice sitting areas. A very pleasant deck with hot tub, and fire pit at night. Our room was very comfy. Afternoon cookies - just the way to wind down after a busy day. I can't think of anything but good things to say. I'd go back in a minute! Thanks!
4.4 on August 09, 2010
We stayed here for three (3) nights in July 2010 and it was a great choice. To me the most outstanding item here is the concern, care, and friendly nature of the hosts. Betsy and Woody answered any and all questions, provided great service, led a great little afternoon happy hour, and served a simply wonderful breakfast. Anyone who can should stay here versus a hotel in the Whitefish area.

My fiance and I lodged at Good Rx Lodge during Christmas 2009. The hosts, Betsy and Woody, and the staff were exceptionally attentive and pleasant. We enjoyed the facility, the accommodations and the true lodge experience so much that we asked if they could host our wedding and provide services for us in June 2010. We stayed 2 days and 2 nights for our wedding. The service, care, accommodation, attention to ALL details was incredible! The wedding was held in the garden in the patio area and was trimmed and fetted beautifully. The post weddng refreshments were prepared and presented to perfection. Even PB&J sandwiches were available for the grandsons, aged 3 & 7! The value and the experience were unsurpassed and will live in our memories very fondly for many years to come and we will return on our anniversary. Woody, Betsy the staff and the "Good Rx Lodge" are the BEST!! Randi & Stephen July 13, 2010

My stay at this Lodge was a fabulous experience. The Innkeeper went out of his way to assist me with my vacation plans. Every breakfast was extraordinary. In the late afternoon there were always a fine antipasti with a glass of wine; a nice way to wind down the day. My room was cozy and quiet. This is, by far, my favorite B & B I ever visited.

Woody and Betsy operate one of the most impressive bed and breakfasts we've ever visited. Woody is such a cordial and helpful host, always around and ready to make suggestions, provide assistance and serve enormous warm cookies, wine and hot evening snacks. Betsy and her staff are terrific in the kitchen serving a fabulous gourmet breakfast. The lodge was built to be a bed and breakfast and has all the amenities you could ask for - wood stove living room, library/huge-screen tv room, fireplace sitting area, hot tub... And the rooms are large, comfortable and quiet. We only spent one night with others at the national park lodges. Our next visit will include more time at the Good Medicine Lodge. "Good Medicine" here. Thanks Woody and Betsy. We've already made many recommendations to friends.

From the moment I spoke to Woody on the phone to make our reservation I knew this would be an exceptional place. It was homey, clean and well laid out. We went in August and sat outside by the fire, went in the hot tub, had wine, beer and hod d'oeuvres in a relaxed setting where we could meet other guests. Breakfast was delicious. Woody and Betsy were warm and so hospitable. Prices were very reasonable. I would love for my whole family to stay there someday.

Good Medicine Lodge is pleasantly decorated. The proprty presents very well. The hosts are very polite. Breakfast was great. Cookies a bonus.

Woody and Betsy were great hosts as well as very informative. the food was great. I loved the cookies. the room with bath couldn't have been nicer or cleaner. I highly recommend this lodge!

We stayed at the Good Medicine Lodge in July 2009 and really enjoyed it! The innkeepers were so friendly and hospitable, the food was delicious (try the chocolate chip cookies!), and the room was very comfortable and clean. Good location for visiting Whitefish and Big Sky ski resort.
5 on August 03, 2009
Can't say enough good things. Woody & Betsy's hospitality, charm, superb cleanliness, delicious breakfasts, tasty daily cookies, and wonderful location made our stay an unforgetable one. We took my 82 year old mother who completely enjoyed herself. The handicap room was a great benefit. We definately plan to vacation here again.

We had a wonderful time and only wish we could stay longer. The innkeepers offered such personal attention. Food was fabulous and accommodations wonderful. They have thought of everything.
5 on July 19, 2009
Woody and Betsy know how to run a B&B. They are so nice and hospitable I would seriously consider going back to Whitefish just to stay there. The cookies they make are amazing. There are two different kinds - one with flour and a gluten-free peanut butter based cookie. Both are outstanding (my favorite are the peanut butter based ones) and they make them fresh every day. Breakfast at Good Medicine Lodge is also delicious. The B&B is lovely and the garden in the back yard is very peaceful. If you are planning a trip to Whitefish, or just passing through, Good Medicine Lodge is the place to stay.

Best breakfast/cocktail hour/room/we have enjoyed in many many years!!!!

This is a great Bed and Breakfast and is incredibly charming located in the mountains of Montana. It's close to Glacier and Waterton National Park and it's so easy to get around. The breakfasts were beyond compare and their hospitality is second to none! We loved staying there.

Woody and Betsy were delightful and full of information. Their B&B with the beautiful garden was awesome!

Owners were very attentive, accommodating, and interested in our having a great stay. Breakfast was outstanding and room most comfortable.
5 on June 27, 2009
I was traveling through Montana after 2 years of not taking a vacation. Betsy is a Gourmet cook and Woody is one of the most upstanding men you will ever meet. This B&B is FIRST CLASS all the way, very affordable and a must stay if you are in the area.
5 on June 11, 2009
We enjoyed the hospitality and location of this B&B! It was a great choice for our honeymoon and we plan to return again!

5 on April 12, 2009
WE loved our stay at GML, it was our first time at a B and B and we didn't really know what to expect and it was a great experience. Woody and Betsy are great, wounder-ful people and they are all around friendly. We visited in slow season so our first night there we were there on our own, and it was like it was our own home, it was cosy and romantic the food was amazing and the bed's are super comfortable, cozy and warm in the morning we didn't know if we should stay in bed or go for breakfast : ) Having this be our first Bed and Breakfast it has set the bar very high, we recently got engaged and we are excited to make this our Easter tradition going back to GML.

This wonderful spot was recommended to us by a friend; she did not lead us astray. Good Medicine is a true find and better than the few B&B's we've stopped in. Value and food are terrific, the location is deal, the innkeepers are so friendly and helpful (and interesting!) and clearly enjoy what they do and their guests. Will absolutely recommend this to others and hope to return!

During a recent ski vacation with our family we stayed at Good Medicine Lodge. No detail was overlooked-there is a wonderful room where skis can be hung until the next day and a fabulous boot and glove dryer. Breakfasts and the afternoon appetizers were spectacular. The hosts were available at all times and informative regarding shops, places to dine, things to do, etc. Lift tickets could be purchased at the Lodge at a discounted rate-much nicer than having to stop at the hill to get the tickets. The lodge is spotless! Great to have a laundry room available to wash up a few things (minimal charge for the washer and dryer and soap and dryer sheets available at no charge). We definitely will stay again if our travels take us to Whitefish.
5 on February 12, 2009
This has been the best stay in a B&B we have ever had! The beauty of the lodge and comfort of our room and common areas is exceeded only by the graciousness of the hosts, Woody and Betsy!

We were late getting in, but Woody left a letter and key with a congratulations on the Mauler hockey win along with instructions and cookies to our room! Delicious breakfast and great conversations, too!

A most excellent place to stay would recommend it to anyone. Owners went above and beyond what we expected. Very kind and generous. Great location walking distance to town and the snow bus shuttle stops in front of B&B.
5 on January 14, 2009
I was in Whitefish for a winter vacation with several members of my family. I have stayed at several B&Bs, and this one was the best I have been to. Woody and Betsy were extremely accommodating, and were particularly good at suggesting activities and restaurants; and even helped us get the best deals on our adventures. Breakfast was always wonderful, and we were always met with a cold beverage and hors d'oeuvres after a day out. They even left breakfast out for us the morning of our 4 am departure! I would recommend this Lodge to anyone.
4.8 on January 13, 2009
I was in the hospital three times in November and December. In fact, I got out just a few days before we were to leave for the B&B. I didn't know what to do. The doctor said 'go for it.' I came home from our trip so relaxed and refreshed because of our wonderful stay at the Good Medicine Lodge. I was so glad I went!

5 on February 27, 2008
My husband and I have stayed in scores of bed and breakfasts over the years, but none have the feel of being a houseguest of a friend like this one. The proprietors, Woody and Betsy, can always be found to help out. Huge cookies always available, warm cozy fires, great breakfast (herb scones with eggs,rosemary-lemon muffins, etc.)They offer deals to local health spas and gyms, provide a guest laundry facility and a great outdoor hot tub. One of the best places we have ever stayed.
4.6 on February 05, 2008

Not to mention the outstanding food that they served! Woody and Betsy are the most friendly, accomidating hosts you could ask for. They always went out of their way to better our stay. We enjoyed our stay so much next time it WILL BE the Good Medicine Lodge for us. We would recommend this Bed and Breakfast over any other to anyone!!
