Originally temporary housing for railroad workers in the 1930s, the Izaak Walton Inn—named for the British author of The Compleat Angler—highlights its legacy in the form of cabooses and other railcars that have been converted into posh guestrooms. The lodge rooms and cabins are likewise comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, with rail-themed touches in the décor to boot. Not surprisingly, Essex remains an Amtrak stop to this day. The inn also a great spot to stay in winter for cross-country skiers, with trails emanating from the property on the southern boundary of Glacier National Park.
