We Strive to Leave Only Footsteps

Rooms

  • Pine Writing Tables + Nightstands: locally handcrafted for the Lodge by Amy Nadeau in Whitefish, Montana.
  • Dressers: handcrafted by Mark Holmes, Rustic Furniture Ranch, Bitterroot Valley, Montana.
  • Mattresses: built in Bozeman, Montana at the Mattress Mill.
  • Headboards: made in the USA – we think in Wisconsin.

Linens

  • Sheets + Towels: if your towel is hanging up, we assume you are comfortable using it again. We will change your sheets every third day unless you request otherwise. Linens all sewn in the USA.
  • Laundry: we have an energy and water efficient in-house laundry. No transportation footprint!

Bathrooms

  • Concrete Vanities: Rob of Town Ocean Concrete created each vanity in an old school house in Olney, Montana. Each vanity was polished to expose local rock on the edging. The vanities also each boast their own unique artistic feature, such as an imprint of a dragonfly, colored glass, etc.
  • Toilets + Shower Heads: low flow for water reduction.
  • Soap + Shampoo: we decided not to use individually wrapped and packaged soaps and shampoos. Instead, we use dispensers and refill them with high quality shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and hand soap. It is estimated that half a million of those little shampoo bottles end up in landfills every day.

Kitchen

  • Dishes + Cutlery: we use washable and reusable plates, cups, mugs, and flatware for our breakfast service. No plastics or styrofoam.
  • Coffee: we serve Montana Coffee Traders shade grown, fair trade coffee, roasted in Whitefish, Montana.
  • Recycling: is limited in Montana, but we recycle everything that we are able to.
  • Dining Tables: specially crafted for the Lodge from recycled steel by Flower Bartholomew and Hannah Plumb of Elements of Design, Whitefish, Montana.
  • Chairs: the wooden chairs throughout the Lodge, along with the buffets in the dining area, were sourced from local estate sales.
  • Wagon Wheel Chandelier: once hung in Wayne Newton’s barn. Danke Schoen, Wayne!

Lodge

  • Built to many LEED certified specifications. We take pride in leading the way, environmentally speaking. TripAdvisor recognizes us as a Green Leader, too!
  • Lighting: florescent and LED.
  • Insulation: high R-value insulation to reduce heating & cooling loss.
  • Carpet: low VOC levels. Volatile Organic Compounds are what you don’t want to breathe, but help things dry faster.
  • Paints + Stains: also low VOC.
  • Doors: handcrafted from local timber, 15 miles from here, at RBM Lumber.
  • Timber + Windows: largely sourced from the Pacific Northwest.
  • Computer Desk in Lounge (handcrafted by Mark)
  • Landscaping: mostly consists of native plants that don’t require daily watering.
