My first visit to Glacier National Park. My friend and I decided we wanted to try something new. I travel with my dog and she is used to hotels. This is the first time the Inn has been able to have rooms that allow pets. They are in cabins about a mile down the road formerly called "the Halfway Inn". We did not know what to expect but the cabins have no landline phones nor is there any cell phone coverage. The only place there is any internet is the inn lobby and the day we arrived it was down as well. So electronic leash was off. The cabin was as rustic as we wanted and it happened we were the only guests. However my friend had asked if we could check in earlier than 300pm and they said yes but got there and they would not because the room was not clean. So we were stuck trying to find a place to get a snack while the room was being cleaned. We were able to get into the room at 130pm. We were very surprised. It had 2 queen beds with the great northern railway duvets on the beds. The beds were comfortable and the room was comfy and clean. It has a small microwave and refrigerator.The negative is that we could not summon the front desk for anything without driving down to the inn. They do not charge extra for the pet and I am glad they finally allowed pets because the inn itself does not allow them. Most places in glacier do not and makes it difficult to find something while there.. We were happy with the cabin and will be back again.
