great location, very nice staff, rooms were very comfy. It was very warm and humid and we didn't have any air conditioning but was satisfied overall!


An absolutely wonderful experience

My husband and I are stationed at Malmstrom AFB in Great Falls. His parents visited from KY and we enjoyed two nights in the Glacier Cabin at the Tamarack Lodge and Cabins. The employees were so generous and helpful. The cabin was incredibly clean, warm and cozy. The area itself is breath taking. There is so much to see and if you're unfamiliar with the area and recreation, Tamarack Lodge and Cabins workers are more than happy to help you and point you in the right direction. I would recommend Tamarack to anyone and everyone. I'm grateful for the chance to stay there as well as thankful for their service. Thank you for making my inlaws first trip to MT so memorable and wonderful.

Beautifully Restored Lodge

3.6 on June 23, 2013

We spent three nights at Tamarack Lodge while visiting Glacier National Park. It is quite close to the entrance of the park so very convenient. Doug, who owns and has renovated the property is completely involved in your stay and will sit with you and receive any suggestions. We stayed in the Lodge itself and found our room to be up to date, very charming, and in the style of the old lodges. It was a bit warm, and Doug is hoping to improve that. The main room where lodgers can congregate is very inviting with a large fireplace, books to read, a computer to use and really wonderful Western decor. There is also an outdoor area for cookouts and eatouts. They have included barbecue dinners as an offering, but they have to improve the way of serving these foods. Breakfast was very simple with poor coffee and too many sugary cereals, not enough nutritious items. We did not see the cabins inside, but they look to be perfect for families. The value was good and we would recommend getting in on a new option in Hungry Horse.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your comments. We appreciate all guest comments and take suggestions on board when improving our facilities (as we regularly do). The free breakfast and the barbecue dinners are two new ventures we are trialling this year so your comments on these will help to improve these facilities. We are so glad you enjoyed our new lodge rooms! All returning guests receive a 10% discount on future stays and we hope to see you again in the near future.


Cozy, comfortable room in a relaxing serene setting

4.6 on June 08, 2013

We spent 3 nights in the Deer room in the lodge. Our room was well appointed and quiet. Just right to retreat to after a day of sightseeing! Doug, Tiana & Jasmine were friendly and helpful, offering up ideas for places to see, things to do and especially with restaurant ideas. We enjoyed Josey - she provided us some "doggy play time" when we were missing our own dog. We will definitely return to the Tamarack Lodge next time we visit Glacier Park. They made us feel like family and we enjoyed our stay immensely.


excellent casual stay

The rooms were well maintained, well thought out and stocked with everything you might want in the kitchens and kitchenettes. The service was beyond expectations and we highly recommend this place!


Super clean and great character

Lovely place with well furnished rooms, immaculately clean. Breakfast was cereal and toast for most guests, though the one B and B room offers a full cooked breakfast
