Red lodge Lake Lodge, a popular destination in northwestern Montana, will be opening to the general public this fall, as a result of a $500,000 donation from the owner of the local Red Lodge Mountain Resort.
The Lodge, in Red Lodge Springs, will open to the community in November and will feature two separate guest cabins.
The first cabin, a three-bedroom cabin that can accommodate six people, will feature an outdoor terrace overlooking the Lake, while the second cabin, the main cabin, will host two guest cabets.
The $500K gift comes after Red Lodge received $250,000 in federal grants from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Parks Service.
“Red Lodge Mountain has always been a destination for visitors and family members alike,” said Red Lodge CEO Chris Pankauskas in a news release.
“Our gift to Red Lodge will allow us to continue to provide the amenities and services our guests deserve, while ensuring our beautiful lake and the many wildlife and wildlife-related habitats of the Red Lodge District are protected and maintained for future generations.”
The gift was made possible by the generous generosity of the Pankuskas family and their foundation, The Red Lodge Foundation.
Pankoskas has been a leader in promoting environmental stewardship and conservation in Montana, and the Red Lodge is proud to be a major part of that effort.
“I have a deep appreciation for the work that our partners at The Red Lighthouse Foundation have done to help the community through the years, and I am proud of their vision and commitment to supporting the stewardship of the lakes and watersheds in the Redlands,” Pankoaskas said.
The Red Lodges main cabin will host five guests and the second will have two.
Red Lodge has hosted over 7,000 guests over the past three decades, and has enjoyed a long history of success, including winning a national Grand Teton National Park Lodge award in 2010 and becoming a part of the world’s largest outdoor recreation community.
Red Lodging is an ideal location for a snowflake viewing.
“The Lodge offers a truly beautiful setting for people to view the snowflakes that form over the winter months and also has an ideal combination of solitude and family activity,” Pukoskas said in a statement.
“Visitors and their families can enjoy the beauty and solitude of the Lodge during the winter, while enjoying a day of snowmaking.
Guests also have the option to camp at the Lodge or choose to spend their days skiing, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling on the lake.”
