We encountered no problems with front desk or any other staff. On the contrary- they were all friendly and helpful. When we had a problem with our heater in the evening a young guy arrived and gave his absolute best effort to get the place warmed up as quickly as possible. Our cabin was clean and had everything we needed. I'm sure it would be lovely to stay there during the summer and use the BBQ, etc, as it was very cold for us plus the forest fires in the area prohibited outside cooking (understandably,) we kind of felt we didn't get the best out of the place. It's all a little sparse so if you're after luxury, try elsewhere but it does the job well enough.

Front staff we encountered were super friendly. Our cabin was ok, only one small window AC for the entire cabin however.
The problem was when we decided to take a walk after lunch. The property map shows a loop so we were going to walk around that and then head to Glacier NP.
We got to the top of the road and apparently there was some wedding rehearsal or function going on. Some older lady came out and nastily asked us what we were doing. She identified herself as an employee of the property and told us, very rudely, that we could not walk that way. Really? We paid $500+/night but we can't walk past this little shindig? My wife wouldn't let me put this woman on blast so we walked back.
I will never come back or recommend this place solely on the behavior of this lady. Her attitude was disgusting and uncalled for.

Dear 95traveller,
Thank you for your feedback. We are happy that our front desk and cabin were good for you. Montana evenings tend to be pretty cool so our guests find that a combination of using the window AC and opening a few windows keep the cabins very comfortable. Our property is 50 acres so most guests are usually not bothered that the top acre is blocked off during weddings to provide our wedding guest privacy during their special day. Our staff was not intentionally being rude but just trying to explain why we couldn't have additional guests up at the wedding site. We do have several different routes you can take on the property so hopefully you were able to enjoy one of those. Thank you again for staying with us.
Warm Regards,
Cassie Baldelli

This lodge and cabins is set-up in a beautiful area and to wake up with the glacier peaks in view is pretty awesome. The lodge itself, while newer, is nice. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I was on the 1st floor and the people above me were either very heavy walkers or there just isn't enough between the 1st and 2nd floor to soundproof things like it should be. I think it's the latter because I could also hear the TV from up there. My advice is to make sure you're on the 2nd floor when you book here, or either get a cabin and avoid the noise all together. Other than that, it is a great place. Beautiful scenery and nice people.

Room Tip: Get on 2nd floor!

We stayed at the Glacier View house with extended family for our nephew's wedding. WOW, great house with everything you need, great view, deck space, living space, bedrooms, well equipped kitchen and the sheets on the beds were so, so lovely! Cribs and highchairs were delivered for our use before we arrived. Our last night was at the B&B, that was also a WOW. Staff went out of their way to help us set up for the grooms welcome dinner complete with a large bonfire. The wedding reception venue is amazing, and again, staff provided everything, even some things that we forgot to order! Will definitely be back.

The room was clean and comfortable. The location was very central for lost of attractions, West Glacier, and the Glacier National Park. The views were stunning! If you like star gazing, this is THE place! I can't really comment on the bed because I was outside the cabin all night looking at stars! I've never seen so many stars, so close and so clear!
