Lake McDonald Lodge

Until the Going-to-the-Sun Road was constructed, visitors would first see Lake McDonald Lodge as they arrived on the forty-foot steam boat, the F.I. Whitney. Today, most visitors to Lake McDonald Lodge might wonder why the front entrance doesn't seem as grand as the back entrance and this is why. The lake side of the Lodge was designed as the front to of the building. Keep in mind, the materials used to build this grand lodge were brought in by boat or by horseback over a trail almost 100 years ago. #throwbackthursday
