The Lodge is a beautiful B&B where every thing you want is taken care of. The combination of the secluded property site , Jim the caretaker and St. Mary's Glacier makes this a must place to stay. Jim makes sure he understands your every need and does everything possible to ensure your stay is an exceptional experience. The gourmet breakfast... More

Although my wife and I aren't seasoned travelers, who've been to numerous bed and breakfasts, our recent 4-night stay at the Silver Lake Lodge transformed us. Our jaws were on the floor from turning onto the 8.6 mile highway leading way up into the mountains to the Lodge itself. The weather was perfect, though the temperature fell 15 degrees or... More

Tucked in the mountains within view of St Mary's Glacier lies the perfect getaway. My only regret is planning too many activities that took me away from the area. Why leave with scenic overlooks, hiking, rafting, atv guided trips, fabulous meals, cozy accommodations and nearby town with quaint shops? The Silver Lake Lodge exceeded my every expectation.

We had an amazing time staying here. Jim was very welcoming and the Lodge was clean, peaceful and very comfortable. The bed in our room was one of the most comfortable I've ever been on! The food was excellent, everything there exceeded our expectations! We will definitely be back!

From start to finish, we had an amazing time at the Silver Lake Lodge. Jim, the proprietor, does a tremendous job of meeting all the needs of the guests, be it directions to hikes, suggestions for activities and best of all, serves up incredible meals. If that were not enough, the room was beautiful and well appointed. I hope to... More

What a beautiful spot! Our suite was beautifully decorated and the view of Mary's Glacier from our beautiful front window was lovely. Jim and his staff are top notch and the breakfast most delicious. We left Silver Lake Lodge with happy memories and plans to return.

We just got back after spending the last few days (including our 20th) here. It was amazing. Great view, scenery, hikes, and all around ambiance. Jim was amazing. He was always right there to help, but gave us peace, privacy and time to ourselves for our anniversary. We simply loved every minute of our stay. I've never in 44 years... More

Hi Geoff! We enjoyed having you and Chris here so much!

It was great to have you and Greg stay with us Lynn! Hope you can come back soon and stay a few days more ... but a one-night getaway is better than none at all, right? :) We really enjoyed meeting you both!

My daughter and I spent two nights with Jim at the Silver Lake Lodge and it was fantastic. The breakfast was 5 star quality and make sure you have at least one dinner at the lodge. It is the best deal ever. We had a blast and I plan to return with my wife some day. Thanks to Jim for... More

Thank you for the review Dan! I think we all enjoyed watching you and Madelynn spend dad/daughter time together almost as much as you did! It was great that you combined some R&R but also did some "crazy stuff" ... paragliding had to be a lifetime memory-maker for both of you ... even though Madelynn was braver than you, lol!... More
