We stayed over Christmas at what has become a "Home away from home" as GWI is our favourite place to stay in the Whitefish area. I have lost count as to the number of times that we have stayed and have been pampered by owners Chris and Rhonda. Everything from the ambiance, the rooms, the food is a 5 star...

Chris & Rhonda are the perfect hosts. From the time we arrived until we had to depart we were treated far above our expectations. No detail was overlooked.

Chris and Rhonda were the most amazing hosts. Their passion for food and engaging their guests was so evident. They are both trained chefs and provided the most delicious breakfasts. They have multiple recipes and never repeat the same one for a guest. They even accommodated gluten free, and the muffins and bread were delicious! The inn is so idyllic....

You start each day with fresh coffee and a rose delivered to your room on a silver tray, followed by an amazing, never to be forgotten breakfast expertly prepared by Chef Rhonda, using locally produced fare. During the ensuing conversation, you plan your...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The award-winning Garden Wall Inn has been catering to discerning travelers since 1987. The impeccably restored 1920’s inn offers five luxurious guestrooms, each furnished with period antiques. Scrumptious three-course breakfasts are prepared by chef/owners Rhonda Fitzgerald and Chris Schustrom. The Inn is a convenient one-block walk from downtown Whitefish’s excellent restaurants, shops and nightspots. Only 25 minutes from Glacier National Park, the Inn is the perfect base for exploring the Park. The Inn is built in the "Colonial Revival" style with a gambrel roof and clapboard siding. The interior is accented by original solid maple flooring, arts-and-crafts fir moldings, and beveled-glass french doors. The guestrooms’ private baths boast huge claw-foot tubs, pedestal sinks, and black-and-white art-deco tile. Oriental carpets and fine antique furniture complement the lovely rooms. ... more   less
