We truly enjoyed our visit at the Garrison Inn, and wished we'd had more time there. It was our last night in Montana, and we were tired. It seemed to take forever, winding through the woods, when suddenly, we had arrived. Sitka greeted us in front of this lovely log cabin. Gene showed us around, and then, to our surprise,... More

Picture a log cabin in the trees looking down on the Kalispell Valley and across a wooded expanse, with the sea of green being crowned by the majesty of Glacier Park's peaks. A skyline you can't look at long enough. Now add a comfortable home and a welcoming family with a passion for hospitality who will ensure your stay is... More

My wife and I recently spent an entire week at The Garrison Inn while exploring Glacier National Park. It was a FANTASTIC experience. Gene, Ann Marie and Sitka made our stay there very comfortable and memorable. They truly opened their home up to us and made us feel like family. The views from the cabin are gorgeous (not to mention... More

Our stay at the Garrison Inn was incredible. We were in the loft of a beautiful log cabin hand built by Gene and Ann Marie Garrison. And oh what a view of the mountains. We also had a wonderful breakfast prepared by Gene a professional chef. We were invited to join in with the other 3 guests in the evening... More

Only a short drive from Kalispell on the road to Ashley Lake, but worlds away. Gene and Anne Marie, their son and their dog were all very welcoming to us. The views were incredible, with an extensive view of forest, city lights, lake and Glacier Park's peaks. The room was very comfortable, and the food was spectacular. Gene is an... More

We stayed here for one night, following a week in Glacier NP and Waterton Lakes NP. The log house construction is awesome. Make sure you ask Gene about the building process. The place is beautiful and clean. Don't miss the opportunity to have dinner there. The chef is outstanding. It was our best dinner of the week.

We stayed at the Garrison Inn for one day on our way to a vacation in Glacier National park. The location is a big log house on a dirt road not far from the center of Kalispell. There are only three rooms: very clean and comfortable, and the Garrison family- the owners- are very friendly and generous. The decor is... More

This is a wonderful place to stay if you are visiting or passing through Kalispell. The hosts take great care of you. My room had its own bathroom and a beautiful view. This is my favorite B&B. I can't wait to go back.

What a lovely b&b... it's a slight drive to Glacier, but well worth it. Can be a bit scary at night driving up the hill, but I thought the scenery made up for it. The room was nice & clean and I must say that the highlight is the chef prepared breakfast. I tried something new each morning - stuffed... More

Wonderful place. Beautiful Rooms. A view of Glacier Park by day, and Kalispell city lights by night. On top of that, it is run by a professional chef, who is your chef for your stay. Delightful breakfasts covered in the room rate. In the evening they have a great dinner selection for a reasonable additional price. Don't eat anywhere else!... More

“They're all good, see the website for descriptions and photos, and read the other reviews for more details about the Inn and the family. Truly a wonderful place that will enhance your experience in Big Sky Country. Gene is a classically trained professional Chef - BE SURE to make arrangements to have dinner there, you get to choose from a menu of delights you won't soon forget, prepared from local scratch with a great deal of flair just for you. And you'll probably want to pick up his cookbook.”
