We joined friends and their families for our first trip to Glacier National Park. This was the first backpacking trip we've taken with our children, 6 and 8. We hiked the highline trail to the Chalet. We had such a wonderful time there. The accomodations cannot be beat - a view with a room - clean and comfortable. The lodge is a hub of activity where warm, knowledgable, humble, and engaging staff took care to make all feel welcome and our children special (they even recognized them at the 7:30pm coffee hour for thier contributions). Our fellow guests were interesting and easy to talk with (the coffee hour was an excellent ice breaker). It was during the hike to/from and stay at the Chalet that our children's interest in hiking and backpacking was ignighted. So much so, they asked if we can come back to the Chalet next year (they've only ever asked to go back to the Cayman Islands before). We are making plans now. The Chalet is nice, the staff, exceptional. In short, if you get a chance to go, go. It's not just a place to stay. It's a place to make memories, remember and look forward to. The staff understand this and do their best to convey their love of the place to all who visit.
