For over a hundred years the Swan Lake Montana and the Swan Valley have attracted a colorful variety of explorers and adventurers seeking solitude or wealth in the rugged mountains and cascading streams. Today, Swan Valley and the tiny village of Swan Lake Montana welcomes travelers for a different sort of adventure. Whether on a self-guided tour of Glacier National Park; exploring our mountains by boot, bike, llama or horse; seeking the mythical Rocky Mountain trout with a fly rod; or enjoying the peace of an evening canoe at sunset, Laughing Horse Lodge, established in 1999, offers a European-influenced respite of comfortable rooms and delicious food and wine, all wrapped in true Western hospitality.

Experience all that Laughing Horse Lodge has to offer:



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.
