"Walk in the Trees" is a unique adventure experience that tours the trees on a canopy boardwalk.
The "Inn" is a warm and wonderful three-story European style lodge built around a central sunken lobby with an immense rock fireplace, an array of comfortable sofas and chairs flanked by reading lamps, period antiques and original art. The entrance to the lodge has window arches and side panels of etched glass that display mountain and forest scenes by local Whitefish artist Myni Ferguson. The rooms are richly appointed with handsome architectural details that use cedar and pine wood. Studio kitchens and bathrooms are finished with tile and granite.
