After reading many of the bad reviews about this resort, I feel compelled to dispell some. The Highland Resort is simply that, a rustic resort and if you are expecting the Ritz, then you are better off going to the Ritz. My room was meticulously clean with a breath taking view of the beautiful mountains in the fall. The beds were comfortable, sheets clean and fresh smelling, as were the towels. The water was hot and ice available for soft drinks. It was the office employee's last day of the season and she went above and beyond to make certain I had everything I could possibly need and that I was all set before she left. The rest of the stay I dealt with the staff at the gas station/restaurant next door, both of which were excellent. The food was great and the staff was friendly, prompt with coffee, and prices reasonable. They were concerned for my safety as well with good advice for travel on the mountain at that time of year. This was one of the most enjoyable stays I have had at a resort in many, many years and will return again and again, time permitting. Great job Highland Resort!!! Oh yes, about the train whistle - the historic Amtrak train station and Glacier Association (wonderful bookstore) is down from the resort on the other side of the street. Yes, Amtrak comes through twice a day, as do freight trains, however, after being outdoors in the fresh air, hiking and walking, 50 trains coming through at one time would not have been able to wake me - besides, hasn't anyone ever heard of ear-plugs?
