There isn't much to it—just four blocks of brick storefronts and ski slopes visible from the main strip—but the town of Red Lodge cheerfully accepts its end-of-the road isolation. A bit of a secret, it's the kind of place Montanans head to for a long weekend in the Beartooths. The best hotel in town is the Pollard, built in the 1890s during the local coal boom. The bar was haunted by characters like Liver Eating Johnson and Calamity Jane, and history still clings to the place, particularly the lobby reading room lined with black-and-white photos of Red Lodge at the turn of the century. The 38 rooms were renovated in 1994, and a few have hot tubs. During the winter, ski packages for the Red Lodge Mountain Resort are available, and in summertime the lobby is sure to have a few Harley-Davidson riders around: The Beartooth Highway is a warm-weather draw for those who love to motor.
