    The peak season at Glacier national park is mid June to Labor Day. Coming 20-26 May has some raw weather and road closures. No crowds though! Xanterra manages the property and is very professional and accommodating. We stayed in Snyder unit near the main lodge....More

    What is the price of a cabin? And is there just one shared wall?

    Response from robert c | Reviewed this property |
    $160 on up. Check the Xanterra web site. Up to 6 units in each cabin, so you may have three shared walls! Corner units of main building may have just one shared wall.
