Best places to stay near Glacier National Park

Historically, visitors to Glacier National Park stayed in the great lodges that are still in existence today, and many present day visitors still choose to book lodging in these lodges to enjoy the history and beauty of the tradition they embody.

However, the lodges book up quickly and, by keeping the original features that makes them valued as historic buildings come with few of the comforts and amenities of modern life.

Our lodge was originally located right between the train station and the original entrance to the Park and served as an arrival hall for visitors disembarking from the train.  The same logs you see today in the lodge have been privy to the hopes, dreams and plans for the Glacier National Park vacations of generations of visitors.

Now located just eight miles away from the West entrance to Glacier, the lodge stays out of the congestion at the Park entrance whilst still offering lodging full of Park history.

With the tag line ‘Classic ambiance, modern amenities’ we strive to preserve the history of our property and surrounding area whilst also providing the modern conveniences our guests expect.

The lodge itself is heated and cooled with a geothermal system, leaving it at the ideal temperature all year-round.  For extra comfort and that essential element of Winter in the mountains, the lodge also features a working fireplace in the original stone setting.

Four rooms on the upper floor of the lodge – each with private bath and air conditioning provide cozy character with wifi and satellite tv.  These rooms are built under the eaves with exposed beams and sloping ceilings.  Two of our lodge rooms also share a covered balcony overlooking the front driveway.

We also have a Saloon (serving locally produced beer, wine and spirits). a restaurant (serving breakfast and dinner) and a small gift shop and sleep approx 130 with an additional 26 cabins on site.

Its the best Glacier National Park lodging  – without a wait-list or the crowds!
