Best B & B on the planet

5 on June 18, 2018

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 ...

A wonderful stay in every way!

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.

Excellent Honeymoon Destination

4.8 on August 01, 2016

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 a wonderful experience

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.

Beautiful and convenient

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.

Best B & B

5 on August 11, 2014

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!!

We will be back for sure!

Truly Great Bed and Breakfast

4.8 on September 02, 2013

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. :-)
