This is a wonderful piece of paradise in rural Montana just 3 miles from the entrance to Glacier National Park, and the start of the Going to the Sun Rd. Susan makes you feel completely at home, the dogs who look after the property are wonderful. After days hiking around the park, it is so restful coming back here to... More

My wife and I stayed a week at The Great Bear Inn for our honeymoon. The owner set a family-like atmosphere with meaningful conversations. The inn combines quiet and cozy living with a nightly dinner in three courses. With access to the outstanding Glacier National Park via a 5-minute drive, the inn offers seclusion and convenience. The sweet dogs Jackson,... More

We just returned from a stay in the Great Bear Inn for six nights while visiting Glacier National Park. We chose it based on the comments on this web site. It proved to be everything reviewers said it would be. So we decided not to move around the park during our weeks stay, but to have the Great Bear Inn... More

We were referred to The Great Bear Inn by a friend who had a great experience there. We absolutely loved it. We did not stay in the main house but in one of the cabins on the property. The cabin was well appointed, cozy and comfortable. We had our meals prepared at the main house by Ryan, Alicia, Rachel and... More

Excellent, clean room, excellent dinner, friendly, helpful owner. well worth the price. We were in the area of the Glacier National Park for two nights, the first night we stayed at The Great Bear Inn, which was the best lodging we had in our three week vacation. The second night we stayed in the Aspenwood, by far the worst experience... More

Everything was wonderful......from the loan of Bear Spray, given to all of the guests..to the incredible dinners each night! Susan and Mary and Ryan were such great hosts you couldn't ask for more. The lodge was beautiful and clean and much more intimate than any hotel could try to be. Breakfasts were far more than your average "continental" with lots... More

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
