We decided to stay at Glacier Lodge based upon the reviews from other travelers who rated them on TA. We were very, very happy with Glacier Lodge. We found that Dave and his family have owned and operated the property for 40 years. They really make you feel like part of their extended family. They have approximately 65% of their business from returning customers and that says quite a bit about the quality of their service.
We stayed in the Arapahoe cabin. While it was very nice, our family felt a little cramped in the one bedroom. I fully knew what we were getting into when we booked it but we will book a larger unit when we go back in the future. In fact, we liked the place so much we decided to extend our vacation an additional four days.
My one recommendation is to make sure that you get an activities sheet upon check in. Apparently we didn't see it when we checked in and it caused us to miss one of the events that the property puts on weekly. It was no big deal at all to miss it, but be aware that Dave has several events for his guests throughout the week that the kids really enjoyed, including an amazing breakfast on Thursday morning.
We HIGHLY recommend Glacier Lodge and will be visiting them again next year!
Thanks Dave and staff for an amazing vacation! We can't wait to go back!
