TripAdvisor Rating


Next door to Glacier National Park, the Izaak Walton Inn & Resort in Essex offers families a retreat in the heart of outdoor recreation. Accommodations range from rooms in the main lodge to ski in/ski out cabins to luxury railcars and actual caboose train cars. While lodging offers many of the comforts found in most traditional hotels, there are some conveniences not available here. At the lodge, there are no TVs, telephones, elevators, air conditioning or in-room coffee makers. In addition, as a result of the lodge’s remote location, there is no cell service within a 30-mile radius; however, free Wi-Fi is available in the lobby and the Flagstop Bar. Requiring a two-night minimum stay, caboose rooms and cabins do contain a kitchen. Luxury railcars also feature kitchens and gas fireplaces. The resort has a full-service restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. And, of course, there are a number of onsite activities, like cross-country and snowshoeing trails, hiking, and, closer to the inn, an outdoor hot tub.

Two night stay to see Glacier National


We had a nice time at the Izaak Walton Inn. Food in the restaurant was nice. Stay was overall a fun experience in a period hotel. Keep in mind, if the weather is warm, there is no air-conditioning in the hotel. Would surely stay again.

Great Place at a Glacier Park

We took the train from Seattle and stayed at the Izaak Walton Inn. They pick you up at the train platform and will deliver you right to the hotel. The hotel is historic and a great part of Glacier National Park. Highly recommended
