Stanton Creek Lodge is conveniently located between East Glacier and West Glacier, with fairly reasonably access to Glacier National Park, outfitters (rafting, kayaking, fishing, etc), shopping, restaurants and cafes. The rooms are clean and come equipped with a microwave and mini-fridge, but there are some things to be aware of before booking your stay at Stanton. First of all, there... More

These cabins are located in a great spot between East and West Glacier. We had the deluxe cabin that included a nice bathroom with shower. Chairs and tables outside along with a firepit to add to the ambiance.. Right on the highway so there is traffic noise during the day...but quiet at night. Then there are the TRAINS which are...

We stayed there in a 5th wheel. We spoke to the owner when looking for a spot to camp and he was a very good salesman (we hadn't seen any pictures of the park). He advised us that it was a gem and the park,even though, a train ran across the street, was very quiet and peaceful. Wrong it sounded... More

We had 2 cabins booked for the last week in July. On or our party was unable to go due to a accident. They had a no cancel policy. We paid for the rooms upfront. Thank you so much for allowing us to cancel the one room since our friend is unable to travel. We are so looking forward to... More

This little cabin was neat as a pin. The two queen beds and small bathroom don't leave room for much more. Bring your own hair dryer, shampoo etc because this isn't the Hilton. The owner did provide a jar of instant coffee, mugs, sugar and creamer to make ourselves coffee in the morning since the restaurant on the grounds doesn't... More

If you are looking for a cozy cabin in the woods in a remote and beautiful location this is it. We stayed one night before spending a day in Glaier National Park, (about 14 miles from the gate). We booked one of the newer cabins that included a small bathroom and shower. At first I thought it was a little... More

The main lodge at Stanton Creek was rather quaint and the host was very accommodating despite my husband and I's later arrival. The cabins were sufficient, but will disappoint if you're looking for a rustic and unique Montana experience. Overall I'd say that the service is very good, while the lodging itself resembles a typical motor inn.

We arrived late on a Sunday and the lace appeared to be closed. I knocked scared that I'd be bothering a grumpy owner of the establishment but the owner of the place (Gerry I believe his name was) was an absolute gentleman and instantly put my friends and I at ease. We had one of the newest cabins which had... More

Convenient and reasonably priced, the Stanton Creek Lodge was a friendly, typical rustic cabin experience with the bonus of being near local towns and the park. The cabin itself was a good size, clean, and provided towels. Yes, there is the camp bathroom... Basically an unfinished space that can only accommodate one person at a time. The shower was decent,... More

We were thinking about just camping in Glacier Park and these's cabins were the perfect compromise between a hotel and a tent. It had a small fridge, microwave and full bathroom. The cabin was tiny, but it was just what we needed. There's a fire pit outside. There's also a little lodge that sells firewood and serves a full bar.... More
