We hiked up from McDonald Lake for the last two days of the Chalet's season. Beautiful weather, the rain having tamped the fires down quite a bit by then, was chilly enough to make the steep hike pleasant, and we were greeted at the dining hall door by a friendly face, lemonade and the check in book. Our room was... More

Brilliant clear skies, superb views and a wolverine sighting made our stay here the highlight of two weeks in the Rockies. This is no luxury chalet, but it is a chance to experience the wilderness as those who made the journey over 100 years ago did. My rating is for the experience, not the comfort. However the bed was comfortable... More

Sperry Lodge was going to be the highlight of my 2 week Glacier trip. After spending 3 smokey nights at Fish Creek Campground with uncontained forest fires in every direction we were forced to leave due to health issues from smoke.I immediately canceled my Sperry reservations which was 6 days notice. I asked about receiving a refund due to the... More

Reservation for this place is special and I was lucky to get it in 1 year advance, but as we found out from others staying with us there are cancellations so keep checking their website and you may be lucky as well. It is a old historic place build with stone and wood. Dining room is the only heated building... More

My wife and I spent two nights here the first week in September. The Park was very smoky when we arrived Saturday but it rained Saturday night and cleared it all out. We walked up from Lake McDonald Lodge Tuesday and enjoyed the walk. It took us about 4 hours not counting a leisurely lunch near Beaver Medicine Falls. I... More

We hiked from the Lake McDonald trailhead which was a steep climb and not that interesting. The trail wasn't very busy but we did meet several parties either going or returning from Sperry. We were surprised to see a couple of women hiking alone along the trail. It took us about 5 1/2 hrs to reach the chalet. We were... More

We stayed for 3 nights in August. During that time we hiked up to Sperry Glacier & Gunsight Pass. Several waterfalls near the chalet. Mountain Goats hang out around the chalet, so expect to see them everyday. The staff was wonderful. they served Breakfast & Dinner. Lunch was a sack lunch prepared by the staff. Most people spent the day... More

Sperry Chalet isn't for everyone- it's about a six and a half mile hike (or horseback ride), mostly uphill and through trees so there isn't much of a view on the way up. But as you approach, just follow the delicious smell of baking bread and pies to the main building, and while you are checking in the staff will... More

I have also done the huts/chalets in the mountains of New Hampshire. This place is cleaner and I like the fact the rooms have visual privacy (though not audible privacy, you can hear everything going on). The food is average, vs the super delicious food in new Hampshire huts. Staff is incredibly bubbly and friendly. Once up here, definitely hike... More

My wife and I hiked and spent the night at the Chalet August 17, 2015. The temperature was around 55 degrees for most of the hike, which was perfect. I thought it might be too cold but it was just right. The last mile is the hardest, which is always the case. The next time we will go up and... More
