We booked Hibernation Lodge thinking it was very close to West Glacier. In fact, it takes about 45 min to get to West Glacier. In spite of that, it was just what we were looking for. The staff is friendly, helpful and responsive. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The breakfast is good and plentiful, and changes each... More

I have to totally echo the review by I8it. This was our second year travelling by AMTRAK from Grand Forks to Whitefish. I suggest you look into the train option, it is a completely different experience than driving.

We were there in July and, at the time we made the reservation, were not aware it was as far from town (and everything else) as we discovered. It would be great for skiing - or great for a family reunion, but it was kind of out of the way for our one-night stay on a drive from Dallas to... More

No frills, but excellent prices and great service! Staff goes out of their way to be helpful. Great homemade breakfast every morning, not crappy waffles from a machine. Ski in/ski out to whitefish every day!! Pretty basic but if you are skiing every day what more do you need??

We booked a 4 day ski and stay package at Hibernation House. This met our needs and expectations to a tee. This is not a fancy place but staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms clean and comfortable. It caters to skiers by providing secure free lockers for equipment and equipment to dry boots after skiing. An added bonus is... More

Basic, clean and simple rooms, you aren't paying for luxury here but it covers what you need. Lots of... More

We stayed at the Hibernation House for 5 planned nights but due to a very delayed Amtrak, ended up staying 6 nights. Which was totally fine and fun for all of us! Big family/friend ski trip, there was 21 of us in all. We LOVED the Hibernation House. It is so warm and welcoming. The lobby has a fireplace and... More

Hibernation House is a great place to stay on the mountain if you're looking for a no frills, yet clean, hotel with very friendly and accommodating staff. We arrived late at night, checked in, had a great nights sleep and even a hot (and continental) breakfast the next morning. Its in a great location that you can ski directly to... More

Let me start by saying, we went to ski. We are mid 60's. It was mid week Jan and we stayed 3 nights. I think it was sold out. That said, how could you ask for a better spot anywhere close to this price. Ski in and out. Of course, there is a shuttle if you want to wait about... More

Super place to stay at a super mountain! You talk to Katie who works with you to get the reservations you want at Hibernation House and on the slopes. Then, there's Kathy at Hibernation House to warmly welcome you and there is always delicious coffee and hot chocolate 24 hours. The rooms are small, yet perfect for a family of... More
