Built in 1912–13 by the Great Northern Railway in East Glacier, this grand lodge has all sorts of unexpected amenities for a park lodge—including a nine-hole golf course, a pool, and a spa—probably because it is not in the park, but rather, just outside of it. It is a good pick for travelers with a penchant for historic hotels, and an architectural marvel that's supported by 60 massive timbers. The lobby is dominated by a number of these immense logs, and perhaps the second grandest lobby in a national-park lodge after the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone. Rooms are pleasant but fairly typical, with hardwood floors; some have private balconies.
