Amazing view and location!
Amazing view and location !
We rented a kitchenette and made all our meals. It was very well equipped but no outdoor grill. View of lake and mountains amazing. Old facility but well maintained and clean. One near by restaurant had super limited menu.

Obviously this hotel is all about the view. However the room was clean and sufficient for a few days. A micro and fridge would make it perfect. Eddies had great food and the town is adorable. The close proximity to the shuttle at the visitor center was perfect. We only stayed 2 days and needed a few more days to complete the experience. Kayaking on the lake was the icing on the cake. Well worth getting up at midnight a YEAR ago to book our rooms!!

What a VIEW!!!!!!
We were undecided to stay here or Lake MacDonald Lodge and SO glad we decided to stay here!!! Well worth getting up at 2AM a year ago to make this reservation.
We stayed on the second floor with a view that was stunning. Watching the night sky with a glass of wine was perfect!! Besides all the constellations - the Milky Way was impressive. Now keep in mind - this is a two story motel(no elevator) with shared balconies so your neighbors will pass by your room. The room was small - no min=fridge - but very clean.
We had lunch at Lake MacDonald Lodge and while the lodge had more amenities, the Village Inn had a much better unobstructed view.
Book early - this place is a gem!!!!

We just spent 3 nights at the Village Inn. We loved our stay in a 2 queen kitchen room. Though we didn't cook, we loved having a full frig (plus it was what was available when I booked a year out). The view - no words for how special that was. The room was very comfortable. There was a slight odor which I cannot describe but within minutes we adjusted and didn't notice it. Staff we interacted with were friendly and kind. We'd stay there again in a hearbeat!

Best Place to Stay on West Side of GNP
Perfect location on the west side of the park. I was only able to secure a reservation here for one night, but I wish it was longer.
We stayed in a family unit on the second floor. So much space, especially for a national park. It had all the amenities we needed - toiletries, coffee and tea, extra blankets. Huge window overlooking the lake.
It is right on the water. Behind it is Apgar Village which has a bunch of cute shops and Eddie's Cafe where we ate dinner. We grabbed lattes at Eddie's coffee window the next morning. FYI, Eddie's Cafe does not open for breakfast during the week until 11am. However the shop has some grab and go food options.
The best part of this place is the view. Outside the rooms are Adirondack chairs overlooking the lake with the mountains behind. We got up early and watched the water for a few hours before finally heading out for hiking. It was so peaceful and I could have spent days relaxing with that view.
If you can secure a reservation and are planning on spending anytime on the west side of GNP, I recommend you book this place.
