Glacier Mountain Lodge B&B Review

Glacier Mountain Lodge is probably one of the finest places I’ve ever had the privilege of staying.  No expense was spared when building this beautiful structure, which also includes two separate cabin retreats on the eight acres the property encompasses. The grounds are fabulously designed with several dramatic water features, including a pond in which you’re allowed to do some recreational catch-and-release fishing.

The mountains, vista and pasture views are just breathtaking. The common areas are lush with quality furnishings.  One room includes a large screen T.V. for your viewing pleasure, although each room does come equipped with its own. There is even a wine bar with complimentary wine so that you may toast the evening or enjoy on one of the many decks or patios that look-out at the many marvelous views.

There is a gazebo with acres of finely groomed grass surrounding it, which makes for a splendid outdoor wedding setting—or stroll the property with your morning coffee and hang out in the gazebo as you watch the horses graze.

Each of the rooms at Glacier Mountain Lodge is uniquely designed with the finest amenities and most luxurious linens.  Whether you’re in the “Owner’s Suite” or one of the fabulous cabins, you’re sure to enjoy your accommodations.  The entire lodge can be rented for corporate retreats, special events or weddings and can sleep up to 28 people, but can accommodate a couple hundred.

My only two critical comments are that the air comfort systems are a bit loud and that breakfast is a very modest self-serve continental variety. Given that this is more of a “Lodge” vs. a “B&B,” perhaps my expectations are unfair.  There is no denying the high-quality accommodations; however at the price-point and lack of nearby amenities, it is a bit surprising that a full breakfast is not provided.  In the Lodge’s defense, it has only been open for a bit more than a year, so perhaps that is one of those logistical items they’re still working on.

There is also no denying how conveniently located the Glacier Mountain Lodge is from all the things you’ll want to do in the area.  Located just outside of Columbia Falls, Montana, the Lodge is merely 20 minutes from either Whitefish, Flathead Lake or Glacier National Park (west entrance).

If you’re looking for the finest, most refined quality lodging Montana has to offer, look no further than Glacier Mountain Lodge.

  1. Nice work Mike. It is strange to see the home where my nieces and nephews grew up as an event house/bed and breakfast location. Hope you enjoyed your stay, I’m sure Amanda was a great host. It is a wonderful place to go to, and a great location. Again, thanks for your piece on the lodge.

  2. I really liked this post. You write about this topic very well. Bed & Breakfast’s are nice places to stay when taking a trip. I really like how the rooms cozily furnished with antiques & quilts, each offering their own distinctive charm. Common areas at Inn’s make a nice places to relax and visit with fellow guests.
