It is expensive like every other hotel near Glacier NP, but it is outstanding and I had a great couple of days. They are rustic cabins but clean and with great decor. Nice free breakfast that is a step up from continental. Up on a hill, quiet and remote. Don't expect cell service, but they let you use the house... More

One of the highlights of our trip Glacier National Park! The facility is gorgeous and very conveniently located , near the west entrance to the park, but away from the railroad noises. The rooms are spacious and lovely and the beds are divine! Everything has been built or purchases with ecology in mind, recycled materials and furnishings from estate sales... More

We stayed at several wonderful places in and around Glacier. We could not have been happier with our choice to start our stay at GGL. The whole vibe of the place was fantastic. It's location perfect for seeing the west side of the park. Room was large, great shower, ac, comfortable beds, nice balcony. But even more, the people helping... More

Floated the MiddleFork of the Flathead River and it was incredible. HAAKON was our guide and made the trip even more enjoyable with his wit, wisdom and stories! A definite must do while in the Park. Thanks to everyone!

This is the perfect location if your staying on the West Side of GNP. Nice hotel, friendly staff and up-to-date amenities. Good continental breakfast and coffee! Although the GTTS road was not open all the way we still enjoyed our time.

This facility is nestled in the trees at the park entrance. It is fresh and new looking, tho I don't know when it was built. The rooms are spacious, very clean and furnished with locally crafted or acquired furniture. The rooms have Wi-Fi but not phone service (AT&T anyway), small flat screen tv's, fluffy towels and comfortable beds. Best shower... More

Most people who stay at Glacier Guides seem to love it. But these are probably the sort of people who value the comforts of home rather than "authentic" wilderness experiences. Nearby are two century-old historic establishments that offer the kind of experiences that have been enjoyed at Glacier National Park for many decades (Belton Chalet and Lake McDonald Lodge).

My wife and I stayed at Glacier Guides Lodge for three nights and loved it. The property looks great and the staff were all friendly. We arrived by train and they picked us up at the station and promptly checked us in, provided coffee and breakfast and let us into our rooms even though it was about 6:00AM. The lodge... More

We visited this lodge many years ago and was happy to return this summer for another stay! I was sad to see that Don was gone, but Jennifer (the brand new manager!) greeted us warmly and made us feel welcome and right at home. Our room was quiet and spotless - great night's sleep; we had everything we needed. Jennifer... More

We were greeted not by the Josh and Max we read about in all the warm fuzzy reviews but by Teal (apparently Josh retired) when we checked in, who treated and hurried us as though she was irritated to be bothered and her side of pleasantry was bordering on being short with our basic questions. We did not feel welcomed... More

Yes, Josh has stepped down and we are excited for him in the creation of his new junior hockey team franchise. He is making guest appearances to help the transition run smoothly for our new inn keeper who arrived shortly after your stay. We are still committed to excellence at the Lodge. We have spoken with our staff, they remember... More
