My husband and I stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it. Our room was small but clean and comfortable. It was located in the 2nd floor right above the kitchen so we did hear the crew in action around the time we went to bed but it didn’t really interfere with our slumber. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful and we enjoyed watching the trains. We ate in the dining room/restaurant twice for breakfast and once for a lite dinner (appetizers and soup) and had good experiences with the staff. The food was good though a bit expensive for the portion size. I would love to come here again and would recommend it to others.

Wonderful hotel! Beautiful location. Extremely friendly and helpful staff!!! Lots of charm! It has a train theme, so would be good for railroad buffs. We stayed in the main hotel and our room was small, but clean and nice. No complaints! You can hear the trains from the rooms, but that is part of the charm.

Nice stay in a caboose!

Our three night stay here was great! We stayed in the River View Caboose which is the red one you see from the main highway (Route 2). At first I was a little disappointed at the location fearing that the highway noise might bother us. But it didn't. The space was very clean and comfortable with a king bed, small but very adequate bath and a small kitchen area. We didn't use the kitchen at all but it's there if you need it. Nice deck on the side also.The staff was friendly and welcoming and the small restaurant was excellent. There is also a comfortable inn if a caboose is not your thing. No cell service and the WiFi isn't great. But for us that's a selling point! You will be about 30 minutes from West Glacier here, but the drive is easy and beautiful. All in all, I would highly recommend this place!

We stayed at the Izaak Walton 2 nites in mid-August and had an overall decent experience. We are rail buffs so the location was ideal to watch BNSF & Amtrak trains go by. Menu at restaurant was a bit limited and somewhat overpriced but that's what you get with such a remote location. Wanted to share what we think were paranormal experiences within our room up on the third floor. First nite, we experienced distinct intermittent knocking on the interior walls - my daughter said it sounded like it was right above her bed where there was an old painting. the knocking would come and go in series - at one point I got up and banged on the wall very loudly and the knocking ceased for a while, but eventually came back. Second nite, we heard sounds from right around our exterior window (which we left open to get air circulation in our room). the sounds could have been on the metal fire escape right outside - we had an end room location. the noises were not knocking, but rather a rustling sound of some sort almost like someone walking on the fire escape platform. again, eventually they would cease. We had heard rumors about possibly the lower bar area in the basement being haunted by a young girl, but we did not see or hear anything about that during our stay. Anyone else have similar experiences at the Izaac Walton Inn in Essex Montana?

Very Small Rooms

We had dinner at the Izaak Walton Inn. The meal was tasty but very expensive . The room was tiny, no air, and one could hear the trains throughout the evening. The wool blanket on our bed was like an army blanket yet there was another softer one in the closet.
