Hotel Overview

Newly renovated, the Best Western Plus Ponderay Mountain Lodge is just 2 short miles from Pend Orielle Lake where there is plenty of boating, fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding as well as lake cruises. There are several local restaurants that are all highly recommended from our hotel staff and quaint little shops in town from local artisans. We are centrally located between Spokane International Airport, Glacier National Park and the Canadian border and we are the closest hotel to Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort. Lake Coeur d'Alene is only 49 miles south of the Best Western Plus Ponderay Mountain Lodge.
