We went to Glacier Lodge to acclimatize for a backpack trip. The cabin we got was fairly clean and somewhat dilapidated. The bed was pretty good, the couch was newish, but you can hardly turn around in the bathroom. The kitchen, dishes, & floor needed a bit of cleaning. The sink was like something out of an old trailer. The property was pleasant & you could see a glimpse of the Palisades. So, it's a good spot but I felt ridiculous in the end for paying $150 to stay there. If I had it to do over, I'd camp nearby for $20. The owner is somewhat gruff and we saw her fishing in the kiddie trout pond as we drove out.
