We enjoyed the location as it was centerally located between West and East Glacier with easy access to both entrances of the park, so we were able to see a lot of the park and MORE. Away from the hustle and bustle. The decor was... More

The rooms are rustic, but nice. Everything is clean and the owner/host is very friendly. We arrived late, and the owner was more than willing to check us in. I would recommend this inn to anyone who plans to visit the park!

In order to accommodate the entire crew in a single location we rented the 3 bdrm Cabin. Very roomy so the kids could have fun. I'm not so sure about having a piano there. But the kids tried the usual "music ". The trains would take some getting used to if you spend more time there. The kitchen was closed... More

We recently visited Glacier National Park and I couldn't find accommodations within the Park and found Glacier Haven Inn just located outside the Park itself. I had no idea other than a few photos online and a reasonable price to go on. But when we arrived that first night we had been on airplanes all day and then had to... More

Our family of eight rented their 3 bedroom cabin that included a fully-equipped kitchen for our summer reunion. The beds were comfortable (could sleep 8) and the kitchen well stocked. Everything was very clean. The owners went out of their way to provide for our every need (lending us a bigger stock pot, etc.). When we were not seeing the... More

First the good...there is charm to Glacier Haven. Well maintained, clean, shaded with trees, remote halfway between East Glacier and West Glacier. Our experience. There are train tracks 20 steps behind the property. Trains move through at high rate all day and night on average nearly one an hour. The engines are big and loud. No horns though! You will...
