Once in a lifetime experience for me. Really glad I stayed at Sperry Chalet and will never forget it. Would recommend to anyone who loves the outdoors and is adventurous. Not for everyone though. You need to be in good physical condition to make the hike up. It took my wife and I 5 hours as we took our time... More

Staying in a place without electricity and showers isn't for me. But this was worth an exception. Hiking up the hill from Lake McDonald was really tough and just a bunch of trees. It sounds like the way to do this hike is to come in from Gunsight Pass, which is much more scenic. Then head down to Lake McDonald.... More

1) you're not paying for comfort, you're paying for the experience and the location 2) trust the staff when they say the walls are thin (complimentary earplugs are useful) 3) talk to the staff, they're fun and engaging themselves If you're staying multiple nights and not planning on doing day hikes out of there (or are restricted by fires like...

We hiked to the Sperry Chalet via the Floral Park traverse route from Logan's Pass.. The route was absolutely gorgeous, had the most incredible views and fields on fields of wild flowers.. Would not recommend to an inexperienced hiker, very remote and challenging, but well worth it for us! Our arrival at the Chalet was met with a large pitcher... More

Sperry Chalet is a rustic shelter in which to rest after a long hike. If you understand that and appreciate what goes along with staying in a place without electricity or an indoor bathroom, you will love it. The outhouses, btw, were among the cleanest I've ever seen. No smell whatsoever. The rooms are charming, but everyone can hear everyone... More

Highly recommended if you can get a reservation. I ranged only 4 stars for value since the food was perfectly decent, but not amazing gourmet. Other comments: plenty of blankets for a cold night, amazing scenery (though Granite Park is better), goats all over the place. Beware if they have orange spots those are from paintballs for bad behavior, so... More

We were originally planning to take the Gunsight Pass Trail to the Sperry Chalet, but had to change our plans due to areas still snow covered at the end of July. Instead, we hiked up the Sperry Trail (from Lake McDonald Lodge). The beginning of the 6.7 mile trail is very steep, then it levels off in the middle, before... More

Sperry Chalet is a jewel. If you hike in from the Jackson Glacier Overlook via Gunsight Pass and Lincoln Pass to Sperry Chalet, you will see incredible beauty. The Chalet is the original from the Great Northern Railroad days. The food is tremendous and the staff is top notch. Renee is a treasure herself and Albert's baked goods are amazing.... More

The hike up to Sperry Chalet from Lake McDonald is strenuous, but well worth the effort. There were younger people flying past us on the trail, but it is a 3360 feet elevation gain, and carrying a backpack with camera gear and necessities for a two night stay took a little effort for this 61 year old. For those of... More
