Moss Mountain is a little gem
We really enjoyed our stay at Moss Mountain. There are four rooms in the inn and it is about 10 miles from the West Entrance to Glacier. Rooms are air conditioned and/or heated and beds are very comfortable. Two rooms are on the smaller side, but the rooms on the top floor are larger. They serve a delicious continental breakfast. Solarium and LR are available for all guests to use. They also are very knowledgeable about the park and are happy to share any information that you might need. We would definitely stay there again!

Very pleased with Moss Mountain Inn
Marguerite Kaminski and Moss Mountain Inn are fantastic! My husband and I stayed there for one week and couldn’t have been happier. The location was the best - close to so many things! Marguerite is engaging and a wealth of information and helpfulness. I would highly recommend staying here!!

Would Book This B&B Again in a Heartbeat
Moss Mountain Inn was the perfect base for our Glacier National Park adventures. The Grinnell Room was spacious with plenty of amenities. The bed was comfortable, and the view from our balcony was incredible--the perfect place to start the day with coffee and a journal. The entire home was very clean, and I appreciate that they ask guests to remove shoes upon entry.
The breakfast each morning was fresh with a lot of options. Sandy's scones were INCREDIBLE, and we had plenty of carbs and protein for a day of hiking. They even have some grab-and-go snacks for your hikes.
The location is perfect, only about 10 minutes from the West Glacier entrance, 10 minutes from Columbia Falls, and 20 minutes from Whitefish. The B&B is situated in a quiet spot where you're surrounded by nature. We enjoyed stargazing at night on the grounds.
Finally, the hosts were very warm and welcoming. Marguerite shared recommendations and was friendly to talk to. This felt more like staying at a relative's home than a Bed and Breakfast. I would have no reservations about staying here again, and if we are ever back in the area, we would definitely return to Moss Mountain Inn!

Don't understand all the 5 star reviews for this place
A bed and breakfast conjures up certain images. A friendly host who warmly greets you when you arrive. A warm and inviting common area with late afternoon wine and appetizers laid out where you can chat with your host and the other guests. A delicious home-made breakfast. Moss Mountain Inn did not deliver on any of these characteristics.
No one greeted us after our 8 hour drive to Columbia Falls. Marguerite, the owner, did send us a text saying that she might not be there to greet us but would leave the key out. That she did. We walked into a cold and dark house, found our key, removed our shoes (as requested) and schlepped our bags up two flights of stairs to our room. Despite some protection on the stairs, they are a little slippery especially with two heavy bags.
After putting our bags in our rooms, we proceeded to explore the house but ultimately decided to stay in our room because we could warm it up and couldn't figure out how to warm the rest of the house up even though it was only about 5:00 or so.
The smell of bacon cooking greeted us the following morning. An encouraging sign that the coming breakfast did not fulfill. Breakfast on the first day consisted of lukewarm french toast made out of what we think was some kind of very sweet bread from Costco, bacon (that I really liked, but my wife did not) and grapes. There were only four of us at breakfast that morning and it was almost like they cut back the breakfast because of that.
The next (our last day), they served scrambled eggs with either spinach or asparagus (not sure which), bacon, fruit, and scones that my wife and I cannot agree were homemade or not. Decent but once again not a five star breakfast as noted in all the other reviews.
The two things the place did have were the location (only a 15 minute drive into Glacier) and some pretty extensive wooded land around the inn that would have been fun to explore if it hadn't been rainy and cold.
The inn appears to have changed hands in 2021 yet the five star reviews have undeservedly continued for Moss Mountain Inn. To check out a review of a real 5 star bed and breakfast, please read some of the reviews for the Abingdon Green in Asheville, NC, a real 5 star bed and breakfast. Moss Mountain isn't in the same league and is a reason why we are going to discontinue staying at B&Bs.

Close to the park, amazing place, so many amenities. Must stay here!
Delicious breakfast and snacks. Able to borrow bear spray, jackets, sunscreen and so much more. The grounds were beautiful with a pond with fish and 6 acres.
