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.


Sara and Ryan GrenierRyan and Sara Grenier, moved to Whitefish back in 2019 to fulfill a dream of owning a small hospitality business in a charming ski town.  After searching all over the country for a B&B that would fit their two young boys and husky pups, they found the perfect place to call home.

The Greniers love skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, biking, hiking, backpacking, camping, paddleboarding and all the other fun activities Whitefish and the surrounding areas have to offer. Ryan has a twenty-year background in personal training, working with people to gain balance, mobility, strength and health back into their daily lives.  Sara has a hospitality, retail, food service, interior design and project management background. They share a passion for cooking that helps create a thoughtful and hearty daily menu.  Sara’s attention to the small details can be seen throughout the cozy rooms and lodge.   Ryan loves to bake sourdough bread and roast third-wave style coffee that guests thoroughly enjoy.  Ryan and Sara’s passion for adventure provides each guest with knowledge and guidance in finding what they are after, no matter the journey.
