If you are looking for a family-friendly B&B in the Flathead Valley that provides a home atmosphere, great food and an outstanding view, then the Garrison Inn is the place for you. We stayed with Gene and his family on the first night of our Montana visit, and we were very satisfied.
Built from large Englemann Spruce logs, their 4,500 sq. ft. lodge is located on a knife-edged ridge with an incredible view of Glacier National Park to the east. The view alone is worth the stay! Gene has a telescope in the living room that provides a beautiful view of Mt. Jackson and the mountains in the park. Simply amazing!
After a good night’s rest, you can look forward to one of Gene’s gourmet breakfasts. He is a professional chef, and his made-to-order breakfasts are outstanding. You can choose from stuffed french toast, Belgian waffles, buckwheat pancakes and omelets served with coffee/tea, bacon, sausage or ham and hash browns. The meal is topped off with fresh orange juice and handmade jam. What a treat!
The only negative I could mention is the drive to the lodge (part of which is very dusty), but the view and family atmosphere far outweigh the small logistical challenge. Overall, the Garrison is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it.
