We spent 5 nights at this fantastic small inn, celebrating our 25th anniversary. We stayed in the Standard Room, which was perfect! Quiet, comfortable, with a great big tub to relax in after a day of hiking. The staff felt like old friends and the other guests were all nice. The dinners, seated at a big table with the other...

We stayed for five nights at the Great Bear Inn. We were greeted by big, very friendly dogs. Our comfortable room was light, spacious and quiet overlooking a forest of dense pines. The three course dinners were delicious and healthy. The Great Bear is a beautifully detailed lodge with a comfortable meeting area where people could gather around the large... More

This Western lodge has an excellent, peaceful location, with a nice view, and the decor is very interesting in a thematic way; very consistent with the intended ambiance. The Grand room that we (2 people) stayed in was very spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed. We had a great stay for 3 nights. The dinners that accompany the room are truly gourmet... More

I had the privilege of staying at the Great Bear Inn during my vacation to Glacier National Park. The staff was very attentive and welcoming upon my arrival. It was then I realized this place was more than just another “Bed and Breakfast.” It felt like a second home! The rooms were spacious and had all the modern conveniences that... More

We were originally booked for only one night. After the first night we could not resist staying a second night. Everything was perfect. The minute we were met at the door, it felt like we were with friends we had known forever. The care from all of the staff was beyond outstanding. If we even mentioned anything we might like,...

Our two night stay was very very relaxing. We were close to Glacier Park so it was very convenient to visit and a short drive to Whitefish and to the ski area. The Inn is off the road so once back in for the evening you will want to have dinner there. The food was excellent prepared by the chef... More

My wife and I needed some time together and away from the house and work. Our weekend at the Great Bear Inn was more than we had hoped for! The personal care from the staff was outstanding, and the food....what can I say other than 'the best ever!' The accommodations lacked absolutely nothing. The fireplace in the bedroom was an... More

We spent 10 days at The Great Bear Inn while visiting Montana. The Inn is just minutes away from Glacier National Park. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Jackson and Emmitt two of the many dogs that patrol the property. They are there to protect the Inn and the guests from the bears. At first, we were a little intimidated... More
