Veteran’s Day brings free entrance to Glacier National Park for the whole weekend of November 11-13. A fantastic opportunity to explore the trails before the snow falls.
Glacier has more than 740 miles of trails so you are sure to find something to meet your needs whether seeking summit views, wildlife watching or a gentle stroll that gets you out and active.
Looking for an easy route to include the kids? Visit The Best Easy Hikes in Glacier for some suggestions. Our tip at the lodge is Avalanche Lake. Even our youngest, at three years of age, made this with only a little help!
Stroller or wheelchair? No problem. Trail of the Cedars is fully accessible and offers an up close and personal encounter with rushing water at the Avalanche Gorge, mighty red cedar trees and the forest floor. Highly recommended!
Rumour has it that every day spent at Fifty Mountain Pass will add a year to your life. Check it out via the North Circle Route, voted ‘Best Alpine Hike’ by backpacker.com National Parks Hall of Fame.
Whatever route you choose, please be prepared! Dress sensibly, hydrate and ensure that you hike with a partner or leave a detailed itinerary (if you must hike alone). Be sure to check in with Park Visitor Centers to ensure you have up to date information on trail accessibility, weather advisories and other relevant information.

Each season brings its own rewards in our corner of northwest Montana. Winter brings the snow and holiday landscapes like no other. Our facility is plowed on a daily basis to ensure your safety and, as we are right on Highway 2 which is also regularly plowed, we are also safely accessible. Taking the train? Ask us about transportation.
Once you are here there is plenty to do. Snowshoes are available from front desk staff – take a trip to the beaver pond behind our property, or venture into Glacier National Park or the Flathead National Forest Trails.
For cross-country skiers there is also an abundance of possibilities with groomed trails all around us. That’s 1,000,000 acres of Glacier National Park and 3,000,000 acres of National Forest and Wilderness area…we dare you to get bored with that!
Nearby Whitefish caters to every level of downhill skier or snowboarder as well as offering apres ski at the top of the mountain or in the picturesque town below whereas Blacktail Mountain offers uncrowded slopes and a family atmosphere at reduced rates. Ski them both and tell us your preference!
We have snowmobiles! We work closely with local rental firms to ensure you are provided the levels of service we pride ourselves on at the lodge. New for this year is the opening of the Desert Mountain trailhead to guided snowmobiling. Treat yourself to panoramic views of Glacier National Park from the summit, then wind your way back down the trail to the frozen reservoir at Emory Bay. A great family trip, even better taken by moonlight.
Too much activity? Not a problem! Stay with us and enjoy the tranquility and relaxation that is unique to Winter in our area of the world. Enjoy a hot chocolate while sinking into the armchair at the lodge with a good book. Read about our history or enjoy a Western romance novel, whatever you choose.
Its your vacation … let us help you plan your dream getwaway, whether its a retreat from the stresses and strains of everyday life, a romantic winter weekend away from the kids, or a family snow sports vacation, we can help.
Don’t leave all the fun til Summer!

At the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins, one of our favorite things is when we get to sit around a campfire and get to know our guests. Watching the sun set between the mountains and seeing the stars slowly in big Montana Sky is entertainment enough but the evening is perfected when we are fortunate enough to be serenaded cowboy-style.
We are delighted to be able to welcome singer/songwriter Brad Lee as he joins us and our guests around the campfire every Friday night at 8:30pm.
Brad was nominated twice for Grammy awards in his earlier career. His cd’s are on sale in the Lodge gift shop and will be available on the nights he sings.
Reserve your space around the fire early and enjoy the melody of Brad’s guitar as you toast your smores and make your vacation even more memorable!

Currently available to view and purchase at the Historic Tamarack Lodge are a number of pieces of artwork by photographer Kinsey Barnard.
Kinsey says of her work:
‘My artistic inspiration comes mainly from Thoreau and Monet. Thoreau taught me about nature and observation. Through observation I have developed a keen awareness of the wonders of nature. Through my photography I endeavor to share that awareness with others.
Long before it was a popular notion, I believed photography to be an art form. Monet imbued me with the drive to attempt to create paintings with my camera. Using light and reflection, I pay homage to the impressionistic style particularly in “Bow River Impressionism”, “Autumn Leaves” and “Whisper of Monet”.’
Evening reflections on the Bow is one of the four pieces on display:
The other pieces are entitled Spring Melt, Goldeneye on Walden Pond and Athabasca Squaw and are available for viewing at the lodge or via www.kinseybarnard.com

For the kids, there is Pinewood Aquatic Park, with outdoor pool; the Big Sky Waterpark with its chutes and slides; and two great playparks. For the adults there are antique stores, and plenty of places to dine. Why not try the Three Forks Grill for a great evening out ?
In the Summer months there is a fantastic weekly Farmer’s Market selling local produce and showcasing local musicians.
In the Winter, take your snowmobile out on over 80 miles of groomed trails via the Canyon Creek Trailhead or rent from one of our local outfitters.
Celebrate Heritage Days the last week end in July with a Rodeo, Parade, Craft Fair, Car Show, Basketball 3-on-3 Tournament and 5K & 10K Runs.
Or, take a trip back in time via an alternative route to Glacier National Park by following the North Fork Road to the Camas Creek Park Entrance. A twenty mile drive following the North Fork River there are plenty of opportunities for photography and fishing. Be warned – the last nine miles of the roadway are not paved !
Just a few miles from your accommodation at the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins, add Columbia Falls to your itinerary for a great day out !
