GROUSE MOUNTAIN LODGE HONORED WITH PRESTIGIOUS “ELITE” CERTIFICATION

Grouse Mountain Lodge is pleased to announce that it has been awarded Elite Certified status by Elite Meetings International (EMI), an innovative company that offers tools to assist top planners in researching the best properties for meetings and incentives throughout North America, the Caribbean, Mexico, and Europe.

EMI’s Elite Meetings Advisory Board, a distinguished body comprised of corporate meeting planners and hospitality executives, grants Elite Certified status. The board considers the resorts and hotels based on a demonstrated commitment to providing an exceptional group experience. A number of criteria factor into the advisory board’s assessment, including the arrival experience, accommodations, meeting and event facilities, activity options, food and beverage, and most importantly, service.

“Our goal in establishing Elite Certification was to compile a peer-rated resource that recognized those properties that represent the best of the best, independent of affiliation,” says EMI CEO Kelly Foy. “We’re proud to offer Elite Certified status to Grouse Mountain Lodge. Our endorsement reflects our belief in the exceptional standards that visiting groups can expect.”


Awesome Service

I do not know how Grouse Mountain Lodge can do better each year, but they did again this year! From meeting us at the train station, honoring all room requests, to our meals and setting up excursions... they were just awesome!

Friendly and Courteous

I have recently returned from our Annual Trip to Whitefish Montana with a close group of 31 friends. Our entire group was very satisfied in every way with your Lodge and especially with the personal, friendly, customer service oriented staff. My first Contact was with Rachel Schmidt who was very friendly, capable, fair, and accommodating in the preparation, and execution of an agreement for our Lodging. Secondly, EVERY staff member I encountered in my entire stay, made a point of saying hello, asking how I was, and in general were friendly and courteous every time we met. This friendliness included housekeeping, front desk, bus drivers, restaurant and other staff.

What a Great Place!

Crescent Ski Council's Ski Week, January 16 - 23, 2010 was an incredible vacation. Crescent's members who stayed at the Grouse Mountain Lodge were very pleased with the lodge's rooms and amenities. Many partook of the pool and hot tub, sat by the fires, and enjoyed drinks and excellent meals in the Grill. The shuttle drivers, all of whom were extremely friendly and helpful, took members to and from Whitefish Mountain Resort and all over town, and all of our members said that it was easy to get around the area.

The desserts at the opening reception Sunday night were excellent, and members enjoyed their accompanying drinks. The daily buffet breakfast for our members had a tasty and plentiful selection of foods. I especially want to thank staff for preparing box breakfasts for our members on Saturday morning. The food took the edge off the very early departures!

Thursday's farewell dinner and dance was simply fabulous! Many members commented that the dinner on Thursday night was the best meal Crescent has been served in several years. They loved the variety of foods in the buffet and stuffed themselves on the delicious cheesecake. With two lines, it didn't take long to get food, which allowed the group to move on to the awards, announcements, and dancing sooner. The DJ did an excellent job, playing a great mix of music. I haven't seen Crescents members dance so long and so hard (after a week of skiing) in a very long time! Members had a blast!!

Again, thanks for doing such a great job working with Crescent, Whitefish Mountain Resort, and our tour operator to put together a wonderful trip. Our members loved it!

Sincerely,
Alice Taylor
Crescent Ski Council

Professional & Friendly Staff!

Since our first investment conference at Grouse Mountain Lodge in 1995, we have enjoyed hosting six very successful events at your facility and are now looking forward to our seventh conference this September.

The meeting rooms, guest rooms, unique location and outstanding dining options make Grouse Mountain Lodge an ideal venue for our conference. However, the single most important reason for continuing to host our conference at Grouse Mountain Lodge is your professional, friendly staff. The willingness of your managers and event staff to work with us in striving for a spectacular event time after time is invaluable.

We look forward to hosting many more events at the Lodge in the future.

Cordially,

Wedding was a perfect mix of casual elegance

Thank you to everyone at Grouse Mountain Lodge for making our wedding's rehearsal dinner wonderful. The Grill was the perfect mix of casual elegance, with a welcoming hearth, incomparable food, and fantastic service. We've been happily married for ten years, and friends still tell us that our Grouse wedding is their favorite.

Fabulous Experience

Our group had a fabulous experience at Grouse Mountain Lodge. I received a multitude of positive comments about the accommodations, the staff, the amenities, dining, location, shuttle service but most of all the hospitality extended to all of us. Everyone was truly sad to say goodbye. We definitely plan to return in a couple of seasons. On behalf of the Schussboomers, thank you for a wonderful introduction to Whitefish.
