Swan Lake Montana lodging, dining and event venue.

Experience all that Laughing Horse Lodge has to offer:

Thank you for making our 24th year a resounding success! The lodge is now closed as we begin some renovations before the snow flies. We will be offering two special wine dinners in early November and early December in the main dining room; as well as hosting on-site holiday parties and providing in-home catering thru December 30th. To schedule a party or secure a table at one of our dinners, please contact Kathleen at 406-886-2080. Have a safe and pleasant winter.


Complementary Breakfast included!


Organic, local, delicious!


What’s happening at the Horse?


Weddings & Private Parties

Whether your idea of vacation adventure is bagging a mountain peak, laying a fly on the backside of an eddy, riding a rugged trail on horseback, or sipping a Pinot in the garden with a good book at sunset, the Horse IS your Montana dream destination. Won’t you join us?

Open May thru October, Laughing Horse Lodge is nestled at the base of the Swan Range and the Bob Marshall Wilderness, at the southern end of Swan Lake. We are conveniently located between Missoula and Kalispell, providing a perfect base for three-season outdoor adventure in Glacier Country. Air travelers fly into Kalispell’s Glacier International Airport, located 35 miles from the Lodge, or into Missoula – a beautiful 2 hour drive from the Lodge.

Your Montana adventure begins at the Horse!

Hiking, mountain biking or horse back riding the Swan and Mission Mountain ranges will be major highlights of your stay. Bring a camera  to the meadows of Lost Creek and be ready for black bear and grizzly, or head to Bond Creek to photograph mountain goats. At the Oxbow Reserve see moose or a family of white tail deer. And of course, there’s always Glacier National Park just a short drive away. If Glacier National Park is your destination, please visit their website and secure your Vehicle Pass for Going To The Sun Road. Limited passes are available daily.
