THIS PLACE ROCKS!!! What a pleasant surprise it was to find this little gem tucked away, 1/3 of a mile from our camp. We were a group of hikers that were tired, hungry, and cold. This place saved the day! Very tasty and reasonably priced "hot" sandwiches. They even made hot water for us to enjoy our own coffee and... More

We just returned from our 10 day vacation to beautiful Glacier National Park. One of the highlights of our trip was our stay at the Sperry Chalet. We were lucky enough to have secured a two night stay when the reservations opened this past January. The hike up to the chalet was challenging considering the elevation gain, but the views... More

Travel to Sperry Chalet and disconnect! There are so few places left in the world where internet and power are not available. It was such a treat to spend the night in one of those places. We are a family of 5 (ages 54 to 14) with three teens who have quite a hard time detaching from their cellphones. This... More

Make no mistake... this hike to Sperry Chalet is NOT for the weak... officially it is a 6.4 mile hike, but from your car, and zip zagging up the hill, (and avoiding the manure, because this is also the trail the horse take up to the chalet!) I measured over 7 miles. This is a 3300 elevation climb. The first... More

This hotel is at the 6000 foot level and a hefty hike up hill from Lake McDonald. The trail itself isn't very pretty or scenic, but that's not the point. The point is to reach the Chalet and either enjoy hikes from there or just stay a night in this unique setting before hiking out. Staff members are super friendly,... More

There is no other place like this. Of course it lacks the amenities of a Holiday Inn--that's not what you'r'e here for. If you do even a little homework, you know what you're getting into. This site requires at least a three to five hour hike, six and a half miles from Lake McDonald. The location is absolutely breathtaking. The... More

Hiking and staying at Sperry is all about having a little adventure. It is a little like roughing it at summer camp. Where else do you get to go into the wilderness with just your clothes and toothbrush? No need for tent, sleeping bag, or dehydrated food. They have a beautiful chalet, comfortable beds with cozy blankets,and great food. The... More

Last autumn, we hiked the 7-mile 3500-foot climb up to Sperry Chalet from the Lake McDonald Lodge and stayed two nights in an (expensive!) double room. While the weather was quite cool and the unheated cabin was rather frigid at night, we had a lovely stay. The staff is super friendly, the food they prepare is hearty and filling, and... More

We hiked up from McDonald Lake for the last two days of the Chalet's season. Beautiful weather, the rain having tamped the fires down quite a bit by then, was chilly enough to make the steep hike pleasant, and we were greeted at the dining hall door by a friendly face, lemonade and the check in book. Our room was... More

Brilliant clear skies, superb views and a wolverine sighting made our stay here the highlight of two weeks in the Rockies. This is no luxury chalet, but it is a chance to experience the wilderness as those who made the journey over 100 years ago did. My rating is for the experience, not the comfort. However the bed was comfortable... More
