A quiet and out of the way location with a view that is really, really spectacular. One could sit all day drinking the chefs home brew beer and never tire of the scenery, humming birds, squirrels, and the great food.

My fiancé booked this for an early anniversary get away. The initial view was fantastic but when we walked through the cabin and saw the view of the valley it was breathtaking. The owners were very friendly and welcomed us right away. We asked for some advice on a few places to go and they were great. Room was fantastic... More

Gene and Anne Marie have a beautiful place and are great hosts! And the food, well what can I say? I am a picky person after being in the hospitality some years ago now. I was happy and my tummy was happy. What a great place to go to for my first travels by myself to where I knew no... More

Thank you Gene & Anne Marie for a fantastic 3 night stay. The log cabin was costructed by the owners & as I have designed & built houses myself for 40 years, I can see the quality & effort that has made this a great living treasure for B&B clients. Then you can add the view of the Glacier mountains,... More

We truly enjoyed our visit at the Garrison Inn, and wished we'd had more time there. It was our last night in Montana, and we were tired. It seemed to take forever, winding through the woods, when suddenly, we had arrived. Sitka greeted us in front of this lovely log cabin. Gene showed us around, and then, to our surprise,... More

Picture a log cabin in the trees looking down on the Kalispell Valley and across a wooded expanse, with the sea of green being crowned by the majesty of Glacier Park's peaks. A skyline you can't look at long enough. Now add a comfortable home and a welcoming family with a passion for hospitality who will ensure your stay is... More

My wife and I recently spent an entire week at The Garrison Inn while exploring Glacier National Park. It was a FANTASTIC experience. Gene, Ann Marie and Sitka made our stay there very comfortable and memorable. They truly opened their home up to us and made us feel like family. The views from the cabin are gorgeous (not to mention... More

Our stay at the Garrison Inn was incredible. We were in the loft of a beautiful log cabin hand built by Gene and Ann Marie Garrison. And oh what a view of the mountains. We also had a wonderful breakfast prepared by Gene a professional chef. We were invited to join in with the other 3 guests in the evening... More

Only a short drive from Kalispell on the road to Ashley Lake, but worlds away. Gene and Anne Marie, their son and their dog were all very welcoming to us.

We stayed here for one night, following a week in Glacier NP and Waterton Lakes NP. The log house construction is awesome. Make sure you ask Gene about the building process. The place is beautiful and clean. Don't miss the opportunity to have dinner there. The chef is outstanding. It was our best dinner of the week.
