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

This place is truly magical! Our family of 5 will remember our Gunsight Pass hike to Sperry and our two nights there for the rest of our lives. The staff at Sperry is just incredible. We really enjoyed meeting them and learning about their summer. The scenery is some of the most beautiful our family has ever seen. Hike in... More

I was originally wafting between 4 and 5 stars, but then I realized that the only reason I was considering 4 stars is that the weather was not the greatest while we were there in late August. That's not something anyone can control! We hiked up from Lake McDonald, and it is a lot of elevation gain, but there are... More

The other reviews of the lodge are accurate. The climb up is steep--we are in reasonably good shape and made it in 3.30 hours. The rooms are sparse, dark, a double-size "camp" bed with three woolen blankets, and a bathhouse with three pit toilets and 2 cold-water sinks. Making reservations requires calling/e-mailing on the third Monday in October at 7:00AM... More

I found the climb difficult - very steep - thought I would never get there. Loved my little room with its lace curtains and fantastic view down to the lake. I expected noise but was still shocked at the level. The whole house seemed to shake when somebody walked in. However, everybody was great and there was no noise at... More

We booked our stay at the Sperry Chalet in October 2013 for a two night stay in August 2014. The only way there is to hike or ride a horse. We chose to hike and had a great time. It is a strenuous hike, especially with the weight of our packs, but we needed to carry clothing for the changing... More

My husband and I hiked up to Sperry on August 6. I tried to book a room way back in December and was put on a wait list. Two weeks after I was wait listed, I received an e-mail that I had a room. After reading the reviews about Sperry, I was second guessing myself if I would make it... More
