We went for a Thanksgiving get-away. It was wonderful. We arrived by train from Havre, Montana. The room was small but neat and clean. This is not a glitzy place, folks. You are going back in time here. There are no TVs or phones. But...More

We stayed in the main building so I can't speak of the other areas. Yes you can drive and bring your own stuff to save money but given the weather I might opt for Amtrak. We were there in mid september and glacier was already closed due to snow. The Amtrak route looks really cool, That time of year I'd go by train.

It's very hard to predict what the weather will be like in March. The Izaak Walton Inn is at a higher elevation than even nearby Columbia Falls. I'm not familiar with Cut Bank...never been there. Will there still be cross-country skiing available? I think there might be. That is a guess. We're looking at more Winter here this week. No snow but very cold for the low temps. I think snow is likely to remain up at the Izaak Walton through the middle of March. Driving conditions might be pretty good or nearly impassable. I might suggest taking the longer route South from Great Falls / Helena around and up past Seeley Lake to Columbia Falls. Weather might be better on the West side of Glacier Nat'l Park than the East side. My suggestion is make your reservation through a site that allows cancellation within a week of the date. Check long-range weather through the WEATHER CHANNEL to find storms that might be headed that way for the period you are planning the drive. Drive something with 4-wheel drive and Winter tires...if possible. I don't know what else to advise you to do. Paul

Yes there is skiing, cross country skiing and snow shoeing trails. One of the trails for cross country and snow shoeing is lighted until around 1100 pm so you can enjoy the trails at night then come back to you room or cabin, sit by the fire pit enjoying the great outdoors with a hot totty.
