We stopped for lunch on a bitterly cold day in December and it was amazing. The food and service were both outstanding and the ambiance is so warm and inviting. The Montana huckleberry cobbler is to die for! Highly recommended.

This was our first time staying at the Izaak Walton Inn, but not our first time in Glacier. My fiance and I are constantly in Glacier because it is our favorite place on earth.
We will be returning to the Inn because of the wonderful time we had! Our absolute favorite part of our trip was enjoying our time with the wait staff Adrian, Can and V (from Armenia, we didn't catch her name). They were a fun group and made our stay memorable.
The food was fantastic and the bar downstairs was relaxing and fun.
The inn is small, cozy and quiet. Which was so nice to relax and get out of town for the weekend. The rooms are awesome and we had to force ourselves to leave.
They keep groomed trails behind the hotel that are a must go, the landscapes are beautiful.
Oh! And the Chefs Jeff and Michael are amazing and we didn't have one meal we didn't enjoy and we were sharing all of our meals to try and taste everything.

We stayed in the X215 luxury caboose for the second year in a row. Despite having some problems with the heating systems we otherwise had a great time and enjoyed our stay. The staff was awesomely friendly and helpful. A special call-out to Thor who has done maintenance at Izaak for several years now. He worked on our heating problems a few times with limited success. It had to be so frustrating for him yet he was always so courteous and respectful to us.

Anyhow there seemed to be very few other guests there probably due to the lack of snow. We did a hike in Glacier just wearing cleats on our boots and even that was overkill as the Avalanche trail was mostly bare with some icy patches. The inn is very well decorated for Christmas. The lodge lobby is a nice place to hang out and warm up by the fire. We had 2 breakfasts and one dinner all of which were excellent in the dining car restaurant (see separate review.) Even the coffee was perfect for our tastes. There are many nice trails and some are lit for night use I believe on the opposite side of the tracks from the inn. Last year we did cross country ski when there was more snow.

We will continue to return at least once a year. I am understanding that things do break down occasionally but the staff was top notch with customer service during our whole stay.

Room Tip: different levels of luxury available for different prices

Loved this place, lots of trails and fun stuff to see. Fantastic staff and the amenities where truly unique. The food was really good and the barn downstairs was fun. Really nice how they have the trains refurbished as rooms. Can’t wait to come back.

A huge fire in the National Park soured our stay, but that was not IW’s fault. The place has some history and is in a good spot half way between park entrances. Food is expensive and just so so and you have to drive a ways to find options. Otherwise the place is simply an older and pretty basic place to stay - rustic and in a nice location.
