We enjoyed our stay at the Inn. We stayed in one of the cozy cabins which was comfortable and nicely appointed. We enjoyed being in the woods yet we were within walking distance of the Inn where we enjoyed our evening meals.

Let me first say that I understand the ambiance of the facility, the railroad theme here that has drawn me here for more decades than I care to admit. When I first was introduced to the hotel, the price of a room was $9!!!...and indication of how long I have been a fan of the hotel. This however, is likely... More

Layout: 4/5. Overall, this place is quite well laid out, with three quirky exceptions. You enter into the living area with stairs on the left leading up to the Master bedroom and "bonus" bedroom. The kitchen is at the right rear and the downstairs bedroom is at the left rear. The first negative in the layout is that access to... More

The Withrow House was fantastic for our families 1st time to GLACIER. PART OF THE Isaak Walton Inn, it was a quaint 30 minute drive to the park. The house had 4 cozy bedrooms that provide private sleeping 3 couples w an empty room. The 2nd bath upstairs was shared but was nicely finished and plenty of room so you... More

The inn is very old and quaint. The rooms in the main building are very small for the price paid. I wish we had been on the top floor, as the noise from people walking and moving above us was a bit annoying. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was fun dining outside and enjoying the trains as... More

While staying at the Izzak Walton Inn I experienced a medical emergency that required fire department paramedics and an emergency trip to the nearest hospital 60 miles away in White Fish MT. Cristinna and her staff were caring, insured that I was comfortable while waiting for the local fire department and the ambulance. The room was clean and pleasant even... More

The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and neat, but the flies in the restaurant are very annoying and unhealthy. You can drive or take Amtrak to the Inn, but it is not close to any airport. There ae trails to hike or cross country ski in Winter.

First let me say that I prefer a hotel with character, not a chain. Doesn't have to be 5 stars, I like quirky so long as it is nicely appointed. The Isaac Walton Inn is just that. Old style inn, small rooms in the inn building, but with private bathrooms. Ours had the shower and commode separate from the sink... More

We reserved a 2 bed unit but the cabin that we were assigned had one bed and a steep ladder to a small loft area with a second bed. The cabin is across the tracks from the Inn and accessible by about a 5 mile drive on narrow gravel roads.
