Beauty, peace, and solitude...


Dog Creek Lodge is situated on 80 pristine acres, surrounded by Stillwater State Forest and perched overlooking Dog Lake. We're a short drive from Whitefish, Glacier National Park, and the Flathead Valley.

In only a handful of years, Dog Creek Lodge has turned from a private homestead to one of Montana's premier Nordic destinations. We offer a variety of accommodations and host weddings, family reunions, and corporate retreats during the year. Offering year-round activities and a place to unwind, there's something for everyone.

While keeping a private atmosphere for our guests in the summer for their occasions, we open 27+ kilometers of groomed nordic trail systems in the winter to the public of the Flathead Valley and Northwest Montana. We have a ski shop, full coffee bar/restaurant and offer homemade meals made from locally sourced ingredients including our greenhouse.



The Main Lodge accommodates up to 12 guests upstairs with a variety of sleeping arrangements, including one King, two Queen, one Queen with single, and one Bunk with single rooms. Additionally, there are two full private bathrooms for your convenience. The Main Lodge boasts a fully stocked commercial kitchen and a spacious dining area, as well as two 1/2 baths downstairs. Enjoy the great outdoors on one of the many large open deck areas situated throughout the property.



Our amenities are just as remarkable as the breathtaking views. Wake up to serene lake, creek, and meadow sights from your own private balcony. Indulge in delicious wood-fired pizza, salads full of fresh greens from our on-site greenhouse, and carefully crafted cocktails at our restaurant and bar. Stay connected with complimentary Wi-Fi as you explore the great outdoors with hiking trails, canoeing, and paddle boarding. Our fire pits, horseshoe pits, Nordic Ski Center, and Event Lodge offer endless opportunities for fun and relaxation. Bring your furry friends and enjoy the ultimate pet-friendly getaway with all the comforts of home.
