Let's see...views are better than Sperry. Great sunsets and star viewing. Good camraderie among guests and staff with lots of books and games available to keep busy after dark. Better services than expected a self-service chalet. We paid for the linen service and found that plenty of blankets were supplied for a cold night. Also the walls are about non-existent... More

Granite Parke Chalet in Glacier National Park provides a wonderful opportunity to get into the backcountry without taking all the gear (tent, sleeping bag, stove etc.). We hiked in on the high line trail and went down the loop trail, using the free shuttle in the park to return to our car two days later. The high line trail is... More

We stayed one night at Granite Park. With the fantastic weather we had, I kind of wish it had been two so that we could explore more of the surrounding trails. Compared to Sperry Chalet, where we also stayed, Granite park is more basic (and cheaper!). You either provide your own linens, or rent them. You can bring in food... More

If you have not read the book entitled a View with Room, you need to do this first before trying to understand this review. This is one of the last remaining Chalets the railroad built 100 years ago. The view from this location is outstanding. The rooms are basic. You can rent bedding or bring your own sleeping bag. You... More

Our stay at Granite Park Chalet was absolutely amazing. We hiked the Highline Trail in (from Logan Pass) and arrived around 3:30 pm. We were greeted warmly and shown to our room. Linens were folded neatly on the mattresses (linen service cost a little extra, but our packs were so much lighter without the tent and sleeping bags). The staff-... More

My wife and baby and I just completed our first visit to granite park chalet. We enjoyed hiking the highline trail in and arrived around 2:00. We were very surprised at the amount of snack foods and drinks available at a reasonable cost. We brought our own food and the kitchener has everything you would want to cook with. Other... More

Oh, to touch heaven! That's what it feels like to stay here. The views are incredible, gorgeous and captivating. Sure, the walls are thin and the outhouse smells like, well, an outhouse, but it is totally worth it to have a roof over your head and stone walls to protect against the storms that roll through. This has to be... More

Fabulous views along the way make this well worth a visit. Chalet itself is bare bones, what one expects given it's location. Go with the expectation that you are there for the scenery and not for amenities. We paid extra for linens; mattresses are old and bunks creaky. I would happily have paid more for food options that aren't all... More

We stayed at Sperry on our trip as well and we enjoyed the food very much but Granite Park Lodge has Sperry beat with the views. We missed three Grizzly sightings within a hundred yards of the Lodge by about an hour. We also hiked up to Grinnell over-look which, in our opinion, wasn't work the hike. Just hike into... More

I planned my 10 days in Glacier National Park around getting into the 2 chalets. Book early, applications are accepted for a short period in mid to late October. After that it is booked up, except for cancellations. Do the Highline trail from Logan Pass for this Chalet, at least in one direction (in or out). Do Swiftcurrent Pass for... More
