Rustic Lodge and Cabins near Hiking Trails Around Glacier National Park

Montana's Glacier National Park spans more than a million acres, with expansive meadows, wooded hillsides, and massive lakes that reflect the scenery. Historic Tamarack Lodge & Cabins’ main building once served as the western visitors' center of the park. In 1949, the lodge was purchased by a local family and transported, log by log, to a site about 8 miles west, where Historic Tamarack Lodge & Cabins' main property is situated today. It’s a convenient jumping-off place to Glacier National Park—just minutes away—which has hiking trails and fishing spots. There are even trails that crisscross the forest around Tamarack’s property, the 2.4-million acre Flathead National Forest is right nearby, and both the Blacktail and Whitefish ski trails are less than an hour's drive away.

When you return from your outdoor journeys, you can relax by the lodge’s fireplace to enjoy board games, books, and puzzles. An espresso bar serves up pastries and specialty coffees, while the gift shop offers up mementos to remember your trip. Outside, the lodge has a resident llama in an enclosed paddock if you need someone to snap a photo of you in front of a scenic winter backdrop. The lodge has equipment rentals that include bikes, snowshoes, and fishing equipment.

The lodge was renovated in 2003 and 2013, with special care taken to preserve its charming lodgepole-pine architecture and massive stone fireplace in the living room. Surrounding the old main lodge are other cabins built from knotty-pine boughs, each equipped with modern amenities such as kitchens, satellite TV, and WiFi. Housekeeping service comes by daily to replenish towels, dust the log furniture, and wipe muddy boot tracks from the hardwood floors. Some cabins also have a deck or patio attached, giving guests outdoor perches to watch dazzling sunsets.

Northwest Montana and Glacier National Park: Hiking Under Big Sky

Although many of Glacier National Park's roads and campsites begin to close for the season during the fall, it’s a fine time to explore the sublime natural scenery. Dozens of hiking trails are accessible along Going-to-the-Sun Road, which is accessible from the west side until late October.

To thaw out, travelers can get a hot meal or solicit group hugs from strangers along the main streets of nearby towns Whitefish and Columbia Falls, which are lined with breweries and restaurants.

Beautiful drive to and from, it's in a great location with lots to do all around and not too far from Whitefish and Kalispell. In room heating was nice to be able to turn up the heat at night (It was quite cold when I was there). Cleaning could be better in the room. There was some old food scrap or something on a table by the bed and the bathroom was not so clean but for the deal it really was pretty nice. Wonderful staff!
