          We are arriving and departing on the Amtrak train (in August), so we will not have a car. Is there transportation available to and from the Inn to the train station, and also transportation into Glacier Nat'l Park? Thank you!

We would appreciate knowing if the "Mini-Grand" room on the main floor is right next to the shared public areas like the kitchen and dining room.
