A short distance from Glacier Nat'l Park the cabins are modern and clean. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Each morning the cabin is supplied with a basket of cereal bars, muffins, bowls and utensils for a quick breakfast or snack that you could take along with you if desired. We were very comfortable except for the train that passed a few times during the night. There is a sound machine provided on the nightstand if you are a light sleeper.

The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The room was so nice, really touching even, you could tell they cared about your stay, down to the last detail. One of the closest places to Glacier Park, it was certainly the nicest. A special place for two, a romantic getaway, has to be high on my list of most comfortable places to be. And affordably priced, worth the price. The log furniture is my favorite style. The bed was extremely comfortable, everything smelled amazing, freshly laundered. I failed to photograph the gas fireplace, there was one and it was delightful. Breakfast was in the room, a basket with fresh fruit, large muffins, cereal bars, individual boxed cereal, coffee, tea, all the amenities, milk and orange juice in the fridge. Microwave, checker board, a covered patio outside our room. The grounds were beautiful, lovely for walking about. There was a gazebo with a fire pit. One of my favorite parts, the hot shower, shiny clean, plenty of water pressure and room for two. No complaints. These folks are working hard to make your stay special. I hope I can get back here again someday!

We stayed at Silverwolf nine years ago and were thrilled with the place. So much so that when making plans for a return trip to Glacier, we didn't hesitate to book our stay here. Unfortunately, it was a little disappointing this time... Our cabin was completely obscured by (now) overgrown trees, the branches of which you had to duck and walk around to get to the front door. The front step was loose, the porch light was burnt out, and we had to shove the door to get it open or closed. The interior was all the same furnishings and quaintness that we had remembered, but just a bit worn and dusty. The bed sheets were of cheap quality and worn thin, but clean. The mattress lumpy and covered with a casement. And the exact same quilt and blanket sets that were crisp and clean 9 years ago, were now thin and dingy (we pushed them to the end of the bed and didn't use them). The chair cushions were dingy, crushed, and uncomfortable. It did appear that the throw rugs were new. But the floors were tracked in with woodchips from the landscaping, the light fixtures and blinds dusty, cobwebs, dust bunnies, and a season long supply of dead flies in the windowsills. There was a mildew stained cheap plastic shower curtain on the shower, and the bathroom sink hadn't been cleaned (red hair from a previous visitor). The towels were old and worn, and one of the wash cloths stained with coffee. The microwave was splattered, the fridge could use a cleaning, the freezer part was an iceberg, and the coffee maker and pot were simply GROSS! Housekeeping consisted of the bed being made up daily. We were supposed to have clean sheets after 3 days (per their own rules/information posted on the wall), but we only got a new top sheet by our 5th. day there. We didn't wear our shoes indoors, but each day had more and more woodchips tracked in by the housekeepers. The floor was never cleaned the entire time we were there. When I turned in the old stained wash cloth to the girl in the office, I mentioned the dead fly collection; and as it turns out, she was the one that would be cleaning the cabins later, so she did clean up the bodies. Our sink and shower were never cleaned during our stay, and resupply was terribly inconsistent. One day, no new shampoo or conditioner, another day, no toilet paper (even though I had left the empty roll out with the dirty towels as a hint). When the sugar bowl was down to two packets I left it out so it could easily be seen. But, no refill. After using one sugar for cereal, I hid the other and set out the empty bowl for it to be refilled. One day we were left without juice, and breakfast baskets were hit or miss with whatever was on hand. If you didn't eat the fruit, the exact same two pieces would be left day after day. After taking our showers the first night we arrived, we heard this crazy noise coming from the back end of the cabin! It sort of sounded like fire wood rolling off a pile! I went outside to investigate, and found the noise was coming from the other side of the locked utility door. I was relieved that it wasn't an animal that had gotten in there! But, I quickly figured out that their hot water tanks must run on gas (there was a vent), and that the sound was BOILING water inside the tank as it recovered heat after our showers! The noise would go on for about 15-20 minutes, and then make a dripping sound (probably out of the blow-out when the water pressure got too high). Not the most relaxing sound to fall asleep to! Speaking of noise.... The mini fridge ran like a diesel truck, and the vent fan in the bathroom ROARED! As others have mentioned, the wall is open above the bathroom. The bathroom fan and light are on one switch. I get it...as a cabin owner myself, you want to keep moisture down. Its just too bad they don't put a little night light in the bathroom, because anytime someone gets up in the night to use the bathroom, the entire cabin is FLOODED with light and you are shaken awake by the roar of the vent fan! The distant train noise didn't bother us during our first stay, or this one. But I must say that the amount of traffic on the highway has greatly increased over the years. Traffic could be heard all through the night, unfortunately. I don't know if this resort is under the same ownership or management that it was 9 years ago. The issues that we encountered during our stay could have been avoided with simple maintenance, some deep cleaning, sprucing up the linens, and some consistancy and EFFORT put forth by housekeepers. That's all this place needs to be a top quality location again. But based on our recent experience, I don't plan to return, or continue to recommend it.

Close to Glacier Park - Way over priced for what you get...

Silverwolf Log Chalet Resort is a collection of about a dozen or so small cabins that are about 10-minutes from Glacier National Park. The location is great if you want to be very close to the Park's entrance, however you will pay for it. We paid $239 a night not including taxes. The grounds of this facility are well kept, but consist only of some grassy areas between the parking area and other cabins - not really a place you'd want to sit out on your cabin's porch and enjoy nature. The main road going through the area is about 100-yards or so from the resort, so road noise is a constant, though it wasn't a bother at night as traffic seems to die down. We were hoping for a place where we'd want to sit on the porch and enjoy the area - this isn't that sort of place. We found this to be a place to sleep and be close to the Park - not a place where we'd want to hang out and relax. The cabin itself consisted of a room with a bed and a small table, and a bathroom. The wall between the living quarters and the bathroom does not go all the way up to the vaulted ceiling of the cabin, so the bathroom is separated from the rest of the cabin by essentially an 8-foot tall partition, so privacy isn't complete. The cabin was clean and the bed was fine. The WiFi, which is advertised as being free and available in the cabins, was the deciding factor that led to us choosing to stay here over a couple of other options. However our cabin was about 100-feet from the front office where the WiFi router was located and we weren't able to connect to it, much less even see it on our devices. We called and brought it to the attention of the manager, and he said, our cabin was too far away to connect... So the availability of WiFi is completely misrepresented by Silverwolf. The breakfast consists of a basket that is in your room that has two small boxes of cereal (we had two boxes Special K), and orange, an apple, and generic store-bought muffins (like one would find at Costco). Inside the refrigerator is a quart of milk and a small bottle of orange juice. We took the fruit with us and found that if you don't eat the other items they will just sit in your basket for you to eat the next day. Being in huckleberry country we choose to go enjoy some of the locally made items available at nearby bakeries. Silverwolf also has a coffee station in the lobby and they invite you to come and enjoy it each morning. The first morning I did just that and got some tips on where to visit in the park. The second morning the office was open but no one was in it and the coffee was leftover from the day before - ice cold. I made mention of it when a staff member came into the office and they said that their office person had to go home and didn't make coffee before leaving. The third day there was hot coffee, but it was apparently someone's first attempt ever at making coffee as it was so strong and bitter that it was undrinkable (and I do enjoy strong dark coffee)... Lastly when we got back after a day of enjoying the outdoors, we found that the water pressure at our cabin was about half of what it was when we first arrived. It was about 7 PM so we decided to call and make management aware of it in case there was an issue that needed to be fixed. The gentleman who we spoke with said that if the sprinklers were on then the water pressure would be reduced. We just needed to wait a few minutes for the sprinklers to go off. So I waited about an 90 minutes for the sprinklers to go off to take a shower. They never went off. So each night the water pressure was not as high as it is throughout the rest of the day. There are far too many options in the area for places to stay to settle for Silverwolf. If I wanted to spend this much money on accommodations I'd look for something a bit more quaint and closer to nature. Someplace where we'd want to spend some time and relax - Silverwolf wasn't that place for us...

Beautiful log cabins! Very clean & quiet. Has everything you need including coffee , fruit & muffins for breakfast. This was great when we got up very early to get into the park. Located very close to the west entrance to Glacier National Park. The young man that checked us in was very helpful!
