Lake McDonald Lodge Rentals

Stop in at the historic Lake McDonald Lodge and rent one of our small watercraft to explore Lake McDonald’s tranquil, emerald-hued waters, ancient cedar forests, and the imposing Garden Wall in the distance.

Lake McDonald Lodge Rentals at the head of Lake McDonald offers many days of calm water and warm temperatures. With easy access and parking at the Lake McDonald Lodge, renting one of our small motorboats, rowboats, double kayaks or paddleboards for a couple hours is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon on the water. Cruise along secluded shoreline and beach your boat for a quick dip in the lake’s relatively warm waters before continuing on your journey over the Going-to-the-Sun Road!
