You don't have to leave the property in the
winter for outdoor fun. When Mother Nature cooperates, you can skate on Swan

Whether you're looking for a splash of local color and culture, the exhilaration of a outdoor adventure, or the serenity of the wilderness, Kootenai Lodge offers all
of these soul-searching and soul-finding experiences.
