It's hard to beat this place anytime of the year. Catskiing here is world class and Summer is absolutely gorgeous! My husband and I were married here July 23, 2016 with 85 of our closest friends and family. The entire weekend was seamless. The staff were exceptional, funny, professional and extremely accommodating to our every need. Nicole did an excellent... More

We went there to have lunch imagining some quick food... The place is absolutely gorgeous. The food was delicious. The day was beautiful and it just sparked an incredible desire to go back and experience that magical place in winter- if just we can afford the expensive cat skiing they offer! But dreaming is free and dreaming we are...

Recently my mother and I had a much needed girls retreat at Island Lake Lodge. We went for the whole experience and enjoyed a superb dinner at the Tamarack Lodge dining room. The food was perfection, the service was excellent and the view was amazing. We had a relaxing stay in the Tamarack lodge, enjoyed a hearty breakfast to order... More

I biked up to the Bear Lodge to have lunch on the patio and it was lovely! The view was incredible, my server was hilarious and the food was delicious! It has a very friendly and welcoming vibe to it. They were also very accommodating when I asked for different food options. I was surprised to hear that the daily... More

When we got there we were asked if we had reservations and we didnt. Its tuesday night and the restaurant is at about 25% capacity. We are being told that the kitchen... More

After a long hike we planned on a late lunch at the Island Lake Lodge. When we arrived we were seated on the deck. There were no clients inside the restaurant and only a few tables occupied outside. We were quickly seated and then proceeded to wait half an hour before anyone even said hello to us. We finally had... More

Decided on a quick 2 night stopover on our trip to Glacier and were very pleased we did, as the lodge, kitchen and scenery were outstanding. We had rooms in the Cedar and Red Eagle Lodges, both well appointed, clean, quiet. Enjoyed the hot tub and adirondacks on the deck while watching the sun go down and the stars come... More

After going for a beautiful hike, we decided to have lunch on the outdoor patio. It was busy so we waited 20 minutes for a table. They sat us at a table for 6 right by the entrance, there was 3 of us. We asked to sit at a smaller table with a view and they were very accommodating. We... More

We had a spectacular brunch at this amazing location. Very good service and the stunning views make the drive in completely worth it. Then we went for a wonderful hike through old growth forests and around the lake. The trails are very well maintained and they have every level of difficulty including easy walks. Wish we could have stayed overnight... More
