Glacier Park Lodge is the original lodge constructed by the Great Northern Railway in 1913 and for the last 100 years, it has been the first stop for visitors traveling to Glacier by Amtrak train. The lodge is located just outside the park on the southeast corner just outside the entrance of the Two Medicine Lake area where you'll find beautiful hikes and boat tours. The highlight of Glacier Park Lodge is the huge Douglas fir pillars that are over 40 feet high and 40 inches in diameter that form the supports in the distinguished lobby and the lodge's decor is reflective of the culture of the surrounding Native American communities. The lodge sits on a nine-hole golf course surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens and features a heated, outdoor swimming pool as well as fantastic mountain views.
Room accommodations include their affordable main lodge rooms, the quieter and more spacious Great Northern Rooms, suites, family rooms, and two unique cottages.
