We rode the train to Izaak Walton Inn. It was a fun trip on the train. The staff picked us up at the train stop. All the staff was very friendly. Check in went fast and since our train was late the restaurant was closed but the staff offered to make us something. They have awesome food in the restaurant.... More

Just wanted to drop you quick line and express my appreciation of the experience of your property Friday night. Once again, Dave and Steve laid out the red carpet. I know Dave and Steve personally, have worked with them both, and truly feel they are running a great show out there! There is a strong sense of comfort within your... More

Our family traveled via train to the Inn over the Christmas holiday. We rented the JJ Caboose for a number of nights. The staff are super friendly and accomodating. We mostly cooked in our caboose which has very nicely equipped kitchen but we did have several nice meals in the restaurant. The food was very good. At dinner, my husband's... More

Montana has many hidden gems, but this one may be tops!!! This is the place to get away, forget the modern world, and immerse oneself in the wilderness. No cell phone coverage, no TV's in rooms, but ample potential brownie points for husbands (there is wireless and satellite TV in the bar if one needs a 'fix'). This was a... More

My family recently spent an overnight at the Izaak Walton in and had an absolute blast. Family fun in the downstairs bar complete with comfortable sitting areas and all kinds of family games in a separate room like shuffleboard, fooseball, Battleship, Sorry. Very well set up so that if you don't want to mix with the kids there is a... More

I have a special place in my heart for the Izaak Walton. I went there as a teen and had a wonderful time with my family and another. I have been back many other times to ski the trails and eat in the restaurant but I now returned with my husband for a night away that was close to home!... More

We spend Thanksgiving 2011 in the orange cabose at the Izaak Walton Inn and had their Thanksgiving dinner at the restaurant. From now on this will be our annual 'get away'.

we spent one night at the Isaac Walton Inn on our way to Glacier National Park. I loved the train theme throughout the Inn. The food was really good too. My husband got the Chicken Fried Steak and I got a grill fish, all was deilicious. The next morning before heaing out we shared a Huckelberry dumpling ala mode with... More

We spent three nights at the Izaak Walton Inn and stayed in the GN441 Locomotive and loved it. We thought that the decorations and appointments were very nice. The locomotive was very comfortable and relaxing to stay in, especially if you are a rail fan. There were only two issues that I had with the room and one was that... More

I didn't stay at the hotel but we had lunch in the dining room. I was surprised to read negative reviews as our food was perfectly alright, and we found it to be good value. Considering the menu was fairly small, I was pleased to find two vegetarian choices on there, and the staff took the trouble to check for... More
