Our family of four (two parents, two teens) didn't stay at the Lodge due to budget, but we dined here more than once and spent a good couple of days using the Lodge as our HQ for exploring. What a spectacular setting! The surrounding mountains are glorious and the Lodge itself is beautifully kept up with flowers, outdoor rocking chairs, good food and drinks. The staff is so kind, everyone has a smile and truly wants to help. You can do several hikes (Mount Brown, and others) direct from the Lodge. There is a colony of ground squirrels in the parking area that could provide hours of entertainment to young ones.

Worth visiting

It's a great place to take a break. Lake McDonald is beautiful. If you have time take the boat ride around the lake. If you don't take the boat ride it's a 40 minute stop just to relax -- sit inside or outside the lodge -- and purchase some tourist stuff if you have more gifts to buy. Biggest challenge is finding a place to park during July and August. Good luck. It does have a restaurant but I have my dinner outside the park at the end of the day.

Beautiful lodge in West Glacier

We stayed just one night in the lodge on a cute cabin right next to the lodge and the lake. The next day was the last day the GTTSR was open on the west side to Logan Pass due to road construction closings. We took the Red Bus took that day from the lodge to the Pass and back. Cabin was very nice and all staff were helpful. Would have loved to stay another night but needed to get to the east side because of the road closing.

Outstanding view, outstanding service.

We didn't stay overnight, but we certainly plan to next time! We did spend half a day here and enjoyed every second. I took some of my best pictures in Glacier National Park overlooking Lake McDonald here. There are so many activities offered here that you can't possibly get bored. The grounds are beautifully kept and the hiking trails are close and easy to navigate. This is a MUST SEE location.

After a little confusion over our requirements for a room, all fell into place! The rooms we finally acquired proved to be outstanding! Due to the time of the year, the last 3 days, we had the Cobb House to ourselves. We found the staff to be OUTSTANDING & PROFESSIONAL! The dining room food was great!
