Very tastefully decorated and appointed suites, well furnished and adequately supplied. Owners Leslie and Carl are very gracious hosts who were very helpful. We were surprised that our suite did not have air conditioning, particularly since it was August. Where we come from, the heat index is consistently in excess of 100 degrees in August, but Leslie assured us we would not need AC. She was right. We slept with the windows open and had to cover up with two blankets. It was great. We truly enjoyed our stay. We would love to return, but given the 7000 mile round trip, it may be a while.
I booked the studio unit (Two Medicine Suite) for three nights to complete a 10 night stay in Glacier National Park. Compared to the crowds at Apgar and Many Glacier, it was refreshing to come to Lone Elk Lodge and completely relax.
The studio room I had was huge and had every amenity you could ever wish for and was beautifully presented. After baking in hot rooms for the previous 5 nights, it was nice to have an air conditioned room.
Everyone seems to mention the nice owners and I am going to as well. I have never been made to feel so welcome anywhere else like this. I was on my own and even had the chance to have a chat outside with them and a couple of neighbors one night for a couple of hours.
On my first night, the rest of the lodge was booked out by a small wedding party. I thought I might be in for a noisy night but instead, since I was there on my own, I got invited over for the BBQ dinner they were having. They were all quiet by 9.00pm so no problem. Thanks guys for that special invitation - I was blown away by your generosity and friendliness! (if you ever read this review).
It was not far into East Glacier township to get some supplies at the really nice Trading Post there.
There are several accommodation options in East Glacier but if this place has vacancies when you are looking, don't pass it up as it is too good to miss!
We were a group of 12 that stayed in the Sinopah & Two Medicine units. We were all so impressed with the amenities, tasteful décor, comfort of our beds, great location, ease of getting to other areas of Glacier National Park, beautiful flowers & surroundings, but the best thing about this place is the owners, Carl & Leslie Haggar. They were both so friendly, accommodating, and easy to work with. They answered all of our numerous questions/emails before we arrived, then welcomed us with warm smiles & hospitality...not to mention homemade cookies! They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. We would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it to others.
This was our second stay at Lone Elk Lodge. We stayed in the Summit unit, which has 3 rooms/2 baths, plenty of room for us and our two teens to have their own space. The unit is very well equipped, with coffee, tea, the necessities to cook indoors or out and a dishwasher and washer/dryer which were so helpful. Air conditioning, ceiling fan helpful on some hot days. Well equipped with diversions (books/movies) if you stay in. The views out the western windows of the mountains are absolutely gorgeous. It was a great base for visiting the Two Medicine area of Glacier NP (only 20 minutes away), St. Mary and Many Glacier are longer drives but can be done. Hosts are friendly and helpful, available without being intrusive, property extremely well maintained, gorgeous cottage gardens surrounding the lodge. Highly recommended.
This place is beautiful, well kept and has everything you want (except maybe a hot tub?) but there's ample hot water with great pressure in the shower so don't let that prevent you from booking here. The apartments are modern, immaculate and comfortable. The owners are wonderful people and helpful anytime. I loved feeding the friendly horses there too! There's a tavern right down the road (seasonal) and the location is accessible to several park entrances and towns. Bear spray provided so you don't have to rent or buy it. Great view of the mountains and the sky at night is a treat all by itself. You'll love staying here. When we return, this is our place!
My husband and I and my parents stayed in the Rising Wolf Cabin last week. We really enjoyed the spacious comfort of the Cabin. It met all of our needs and Leslie and Carl were very helpful when our grill required a new propane tank. The kitchen was well-stocked and the beds and furniture were very comfortable. The location was convenient to East Glacier, which had several good places to eat out. We got groceries in Browning, about 17 miles away. My husband and father enjoyed hiking on the property as well. This was a good "home base" for exploring the east side of Glacier National Park. Highly recommend!

We stumbled upon this gem last minute. Leslie was very accommodating. We were looking for 1bdr suite, but since they had none available, they gave us the 2 bdr suite for an adjusted price. The suite is equipped with all amenities and is very comfortable. The property is very beautiful and there are a couple of hiking options in the area. It's about an hour from the St. Mary and Many Glacier areas, so it's a bit far from Glacier NP, but a lot more comfortable than some of the other options in the area.
