“Really nice place”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

Very friendly hosts, good food, and decent accommodations. The grand kids really liked this place even though there was no internet or cell phone service. Because Amtrak was 8 hours late, we arrived at 2:30am, but owner was waiting up for us. This kind of friendly family welcome pervaded place. Breakfasts very good (although you take what you get) and dining room had good family dinners. We all though it was a great value.

We have stayed here twice, and we LOVE this place!! It is a family owned business, and the family is very nice. They got (I believe) 3 dogs and a cat that are very sweet and good to people. I played fetch with one of them! They offer the best free breakfast ever that I know of -- it's a hot breakfast, too, by the way, that they switch up every morning. They run a restaurant that opens in the evenings, so you can have dinner there too. Great dinners too! It's secluded and smaller than other lodging places. Great place to view millions of stars on a clear night. Cabins are cozy. Hot water. Flushable toilets. If you like being out in nature, in a serene area, with not a lot of city distractions, this is the place for you! If you love TV and Wi-fi, maybe not.

Had a one night stay at Bison Creek Lodge and would not stay with them again or recommend it to anyone else.
The chalet was not very clean (cob webs) and the bathroom was way too small even for average sized persons. The ceiling fan switch is positioned very high and I had to stand on a chair to reach it. In addition, the door knobs and locks need attention. We had great difficulty getting the door unlocked from the inside. Had there been a fire, we no doubt would have had to break a window to exit.
However, the dinner at their restaurant was very good and priced reasonable.

Cute little mom and pop establishment. A. frame cabins are dated and not very well built...watch your head when going up stairs! Be careful coming down as well as stairs are very steep. A curious thing...same key opens all A frame cabins and possibility all rustic cabins as well. Don't ask how I found that out as it is a long story. I don't think this is dangerous but then you never know who else is staying there the same night as you...just a heads up not to leave valuables in your cabin.

Breakfast was so-so and the friendly dog Ponder will keep you and any children in your party entertained.

You could do better than this place but then you could do a lot worse. Check it out....it may grow on you.

We stayed at Bison Creek while on vacation to Glacier National Park. It was like going to Grandma and Grandpa's house when you are a little kid. No internet or phones to bother you, just beautiful scenery and hiking. You can really relax like you are a kid again. Nice owners who cook great food. Large lawn for the kids to play on. Friendly dogs and horses for the kids to play with. The rooms and beds were clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy, just like being at Grandma and Grandpa's house. No fancy prices, either. Good value, and we will definitely be back to enjoy the nightly campfire and s'mores. Thanks!

Bison Creek Ranch was a great place to stay while visiting Glacier National Park. Breakfast was provided and the staff did an excellent job of preparing something different everyday with plenty of coffee and fresh fruit. My favorite was biscuits and gravy. The Evening menu was unique and excellent also. My wifes favorite was the walleye, she ordered it three times during our week stay. The prices were reasonable and the service commendable in a family setting. A real peaceful place to unwind after a hectic day of travel and site seeing.

I came here with my family and it was perfect. The A-frame cabins were the perfect size for us. They were simple and cozy... just what one needs when going on an adventure. From our porch we had breathtaking views of the park. There was the friendliest dog that greeted us and loved the attention that my little brother gave him. We had breakfast at the in where we talked to Molly one of the family members who runs the Inn and she was just awesome super sweet girl. I highly recommend this Inn as a place to make some lasting memories. And they have really cool horses.
