Motel Units

An essential stop for visiting history buffs, these historic buildings were built as temporary accommodation for workers on the nearby Hungry Horse Dam construction project. Economical in size, yet each with attached bath, these units were designed to ensure workers had adequate housing while off shift.

These cabins were moved to their new location at the lodge in the mid 20th century. We have strived to retain as many of the original features of these units as possible in order to reflect their heritage and the importance of retaining and sharing our local history.

Original features include wood floors, knotty pine walls, and exterior log cladding, and each unit has its own character with slightly sloping floors, handmade furniture, and warm, inviting interiors. These cozy units now sit on either side of the lodge in spacious fourplexes. Each single unit holds one queen bed to sleep 1-2 guests. Each double unit holds two queen beds (sleeping 2-4 guests).

Today, both single and double rooms come equipped with air conditioning, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, wireless internet, satellite TV, a cozy sitting area, and private bathroom. Exterior entrances lead to a communal deck area, with designated parking near each entrance. We think the original occupants would approve!

Guests staying in these rooms have access to charcoal grills and fire pits throughout the grounds, as well as games and picnic areas outside and the cozy lodge living room inside.

To find out more about the Hungry Horse Dam project you can visit the dam itself a few miles from our location.  The visitor center there has many historical photos and newspaper clippings illustrating the stages of construction, growth of the area as a result of the project, and milestones made.

Please note that the room plans below have been ordered by location in each fourplex.  Motel Units 4 and 8 are farthest away from the lodge, while Units 1 and 5 are closest.
