LODGE HISTORY

Good Medicine Lodge was built in 1978 by Lindal Cedar Homes, a well known lodge-style home manufacturing company.  The original structure of the property was the first ever built by Lindal in the state of Montana. It is constructed of square cedar logs, high pitched ceilings and features large panoramic windows on the front facade.  Over the years, the property has gone through several transformations making it into the nine bedroom Bed and Breakfast that it is today. The final result is a perfect balance of elegance and warmth on the interior and exquisitely crafted exterior. Tastefully influenced by Native American culture, the roomy interiors are punctuated by crackling fireplaces, rustic art and solid wood furnishings.
