Back again for the Thanksgiving weekend
We have come back again for a Thanksgiving weekend getaway. We take the Amtrak train across Northern Montana. It is a great place to come and relax.
This year we were a bit disappointed that there was no buffet for the main Thanksgiving meal. The meal options were tasty, and we enjoyed them, but we did miss the buffet. We hope they bring it back next year.

Limited Amenities and lack of heat
A weekend to enjoy some quality time with our grandchildren turned into an unwelcoming and cold experience. The online listing states that the facility has an area to relax and play games. When we attempted to go to the area, we were greeted by a note that the area was reserved by a group - the front desk told us it would be available in 2 hours. The room was not available the entire weekend. In the early evening we asked how to turn on the heat in our rooms. We were told that the boiler would start when the outside temperature was low enough. It was close to 32 degrees outside. Our 4 year old grandson went to sleep that night in an unheated room.

Great railfan birthday
We rode the Amtrak empire builder to the Izaak Walton inn for my sons birthday. He is a huge railfan and enjoyed every minute. We stayed in the red caboose, cute and comfortable. It is quite a walk from the main hotel. The restaurant staff went above and beyond to help us celebrate! The food was excellent, with a few kid friendly selections. Thank you to Mae, Varvara and the chef!

Not a Bad Place to Stay But I would bring my own food
We came for our anniversary and stayed in the blue caboose, it was nice and clean but the bed was very uncomfortable. Most of the staff were nice and helpful.
Our main complaint about our experience was quality of food in the restaurant. My husband ordered the fish and chips for $19. They were frozen fish sticks from FSA and the fries the same. To say the lease it was not good. The quality is not there for the price of the food. I had a NY strip with a salad for $32, they had cooked it nicely but the quality of the cut was not. If I had to guess I would say this frozen from FSA. I am from the area and know how many places you could get local from that are quality ingredients and I would have no problem paying that price. We had great servers that were happy and helpful. So we tried breakfast, all I can say is that it had absolutely no flavor. The potatoes were straight from a frozen bag that tasted like nothing. (You know this when they are uniform squares you buy in the freezer section at the store.) The scrambled eggs were over cooked and tasteless and the english muffin was burnt.

Two night stay to see Glacier National
We had a nice time at the Izaak Walton Inn. Food in the restaurant was nice. Stay was overall a fun experience in a period hotel. Keep in mind, if the weather is warm, there is no air-conditioning in the hotel. Would surely stay again.
