Mountain House Upper
Great location in the winter for views, with a ski in/out access to chair 3. Unit is clean and serviceable, with some areas being updated, while other parts in need of it. Kitchen/living/dining is the best part of this unit. Nice, open concept with killer views. Plenty of firewood available for the 70s quirky fireplace (which I liked). Kitchen had plenty of pans, dishes, utensils; a cookie sheet being the only missing thing I really needed. Not much in the cupboards except salt/pepper and some random spices, so if you plan on cooking meals, don’t count on that being here. They had coffee filters, foil, and plastic wrap though. Great large covered deck with chairs to enjoy the snow and beauty of the mountain. They have plenty of hooks to hang wet ski clothes, with storage for the poles and skis in the unit. Nice large table for family meals, but sadly no games, cards, or puzzles here to help pass the evenings. Bedrooms and bathrooms definitely are ready for updates. Linens were clean, but worn down after years of use. Towels were newer, but not the softest. Bathrooms could use heaters...it was very cold taking showers. The master has an old sauna in it. I’m not sure if it worked, but the room was freezing and made the bathroom even more cold. A complete remodel using that space could give you a much larger master bath, with a soaker tub preferred. Toiletries included were not the best; no hand soap for the sinks, or body wash, and only the tiniest bar of soap. I would suggest buying toilet paper and tissue instead of using what they provide. They are hard on your nose and hind end. 😫Also, the bedrooms did not have enough plugs for everything we brought, so pack accordingly. Stackable washer/dryer in unit, with one load of detergent provided, but no dryer sheets.
Overall we were happy with this unit. The snow shuttle picked up at the village, which was a short walk down. I will say that walking back up is quite taxing. It is definitely uphill, and on snow covered streets. However, if you ski in, you avoid that. The resort has 24 hour availability, so you’ve got that benefit. Really, if they would update the worn down linens, remodel the bathrooms, and add a few missing amenities, this would be a really nice mid-range unit. You pay for the views and ski in/out proximity, so for that, we would recommend staying here and would rebook for the next season.

Unexpected (nice) Surprise
We stayed in the main lodge where the check in is when fires caused our original lodging choice to be evacuated. Went to this location not expecting much. We like old historic sites. This ws not. What it was was a first class delihtfully roomy two bedroom, two bath, kitchen, dining area, living room and patio with all furniture and house necessities available. It helped our disappointment about the historic lodge get assuaged quite a bit. The summit ride on the ski lift gondola was great fun. Kudos to SHAWN. This gentleman was eerything one would want in a hospitality professional.

Nice condo with AC
We stayed for 4 nights in a one bedroom condo, everything was new within the last 5 years. The condo had AC, if you want AC request it at booking. It was no surprise to us about the AC, check the website.

Manchester Lower don't do it!
Booked this unit as described with the intent to actually be able to prepare our meals with the kitchen. This is NOT a real option for those who intend to eat something other than cold sandwiches and the like.
This unit is VERY outdated but beyond that things such as the stove top (see photo) are unusable. Kitchen utensils are old and very cheap, not worth the effort or the money we spent thinking we could prepare even the simplest family meals. The outdoor gas grill is adequate.
The mountain is fabulous and the summer activities are great. We just feel ripped off based on our lodging.

Miserable in the Summer
We had just spent an amazing week in West Glacier, but were not yet ready to leave Montana. We booked a room online for 3 nights at Hibernation House, and were excited to do all the fun summer activities at the mountain. First of all- the staff were all great and I have no complaints about them. The hot breakfast was delicious. However, this property has no AC and temps were in the 90's. The first night was tolerable, but after spending the next, hot day on the ropes course and alpine slide, we came back to a hot, stuffy room. That was a long night- nobody slept because of the heat. We chose to leave a day early and lose $100 rather than spend another sleepless night in the hot, hot room. The clerk was pleasant when I informed her of our early depature, but didn't offer any solutions- even a switch to a ground floor room would have been helpful. The website should really say that there is no ac, as our room felt like 80 degrees. Would be a nice stay in winter for skiers, but miserable in the summertime.
