Laughing Horse Lodge draws you into its laid-back rhythm from the moment you walk through the gate, past raised beds containing your dinner salad greens and through a tumble of wildflowers in the courtyard. It is an imaginative space that helps you shake off a long day of driving between Montana sights. The menu is creative and prepared with a... More

This is basically an old fashioned strip motel. They filled the parking lot with dirt and put some vegetation on it. It is a tiny property with tiny rooms. The breakfast was good.

Laughing Horse was a great find for us! Its part motel, part B&B, situated near Swan Lake, MT. I believe there are 8 ground floor rooms. The rooms partially surround a beautiful, flowered courtyard, which is partially covered by colourful canopies. The court yard attracts a number small colorful birds. There is a restaurant that the public can also dine... More

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Laughing Horse over Memorial Day weekend. Kathleen and company took great care of us. The room, the food, the wine and the people were all delightful. We are looking forward to a return stay the next time we are in the Flathead Valley.

As I took my luggage from my vehicle, there was a staff member offering refreshments and by the time I got to my room he was there, drinks in hand. What a great way to end a long day!!

My husband (and dog) and I just returned from a quick getaway to the Laughing Horse Lodge. We had read an article in our local newspaper and decided to check it out over the Thanksgiving weekend.
