Hospitable and great location
We arrived in a blaze of glory having been a little lost in the mountains of Montana prior. The staff was nothing but accommodating and made sure we were relaxed and well taken care of upon arrival. The location is very close to GNP so it was perfect when we wanted to get there early the next morning for a full day of activities.

Just the right place for us!
Loved this place! Stayed in the lodge, enjoyed relaxing at the bar, check in was easy, it was so close to the West Glacier entrance, and Taco Loco was great to have on site. Bret was great with the maps for different areas in the park to visit--he was our hiking concierge! Kimber was so friendly and clued us in to local areas to check out. We couldn't have asked for a better place to escape to..highly recommend!

Not sure historic is right description!
We booked this place because it was available and reasonably priced before the plandemic for a June vacation, which was canceled. They didnt refund our deposit but extended the reservation to the end of 2020. We rescheduled for September. The place is very rustic. Older, wood cabins inside and out. Road noise is very noticeable. Not the cleanest place we ever stayed. Spider webs in the bathroom, mold stained caulking in the shower. Speaking of the shower, it was pretty unusual but large. Handles old and falling off. Bedding appeared clean but had a little odor to them. Location was great. Not far from Glacier or Columbia Falls. Right between the two. Taco place inside Lodge not authentic nor good at all! I would not stay here again. It would be worth spending a little more for a nicer, cleaner place. Of course this is a bargain when the Park lodges started at $300/night. Since we basically slept and showered here and didn't hang around, it fit the need. With a little more effort, it could be a really great place! Perhaps they were tired after the summer.

Loved our stay!
The employees are wonderful! I met nearly all of them in a three night stay -- they take the approach that the customer is important -- The accommodations are a bit dated, but in a woodsy sort of way that I loved. We stayed in the two bedroom cabin -- very nice, very very clean and well worth the money. The location was excellent to explore Glacier Park. It was huckleberry season so we picked a few of those, bought a few of those and generally enjoyed our selves. A quiet place to just "be" for a few days.

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.
