Cabin near Glacier
We stayed in a two bedroom cabin that was perfect for us and our grandson. Has full kitchen but also close to eating out places. Had a grill for doing your own burgers. Close to park entrance, too. The only negative was that it is close to the main road and the road noise was pretty loud.

Huge cancellation fee
We were looking forward to staying here, but due to having to rearrange our whole itinerary and finding lodging for our new dates inside Glacier N.P., we cancelled our reservation here. I did not realize what a big fee they charge for cancelling. I realize I should have carefully read the fine print. We cancelled over a week before our stay and had to pay half of the total of the room. This is a BIG fee. So, it looks nice and I'm sure it's a great place to stay. Just make sure you won't have a change of plans. I didn't run into this problem at any of the other 8 places we stayed.

Good location for commuting to Glacier
This property is a mix of old (the lodge) and newer buildings. The main building isn't really all that lodge-like, if you're thinking along the lines of lodges you've seen at national or state parks. That said, it's got some charm to it and includes dining and some guest rooms (upstairs). We stayed in one of the lodge rooms for two nights. It was roomy (watch your head, low ceilings around the edge) but for our purposes would have been better with just one bed. The room was clean, the temperature was ok, the bathroom was fine. Getting up the stairs with large suitcases took an effort, so consider putting the things you need in a small bag and leaving the big stuff behind. If you want to sleep late, don't stay in the main lodge. Lots of activity early, with people prepping breakfast and all the other stuff to keep a hotel going. Stay in one of the other buildings and you'll most likely have a quiet experience.

Close to Glacier
We stayed in the Iceberg cabin. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. The hardwood floor and doors were beautiful. It was quiet and in a nice wooded setting. The cabin had two comfortable queen size beds, plenty of fluffy white towels, a spacious livingroom and bathroom, and a complete kitchen. There is only one bathroom, but it worked out great for the four of us.
The cabin is perfectly situated next to Glacier Nat'l Park. Our first night we were tired, so we ate at the on-site restaurant. The food was very good and reasonably priced with a nice atmosphere. We stayed with two couples and it was a nice getaway.
We had a little trouble with the cleaning staff one day, but Carolyn, the Finance Manager resolved it to our satisfaction. One thing I would change is they had a grease pot sitting on the counter by the stove. I would just ask guests to not put grease down the drain. It was pretty disgusting. (My grandmother saved her bacon grease for eggs, but it was used frequently. Amazingly, she lived to be 95.) The grease at the Lodge looked like it was decades old. Also beware, there is a tree right behind the Iceberg cabin. It looks like it has been backed into many times. We hit it with our bike rack, but were able to get a replacement part for the broken plastic. A few reflectors on the tree might be helpful:) Overall a nice place to stay just outside the park. I would stay here again.

Historic Tamarack Lodge is a beautiful place to stay. The cabins are wonderful - and the lodge itself is wonderful for breakfasts and dinners. You can also get fabulous lattes in the morning at the bar! The wait staff is amazing and very helpful.
