Glacier National Park Lodge Rooms

June 18th, 2013 by teresa

Our Lodge began its life of service to the community as one of the original visitor centers for guests to Glacier National Park arriving by train at West Glacier until 1949 when, with the formation of West Glacier and the decision to build a school in the area, the lodge was sold. Purchased by the Rowles family, it was dismantled log by log and moved via logging trucks to its present location.

Today, the lodge continues to provide guests a truly wonderful experience in keeping with the spirit of the Montana Mountains in which it resides.

Sympathetically refurbished in 2013, the lodge now boasts four Glacier National Park themed lodge rooms for our guests to experience a taste of traditional mountain living.

Lodge Room guests enjoy a private entrance located at the side of the lodge. Parking spaces are allocated close to the entrance which leads into the lodge Great Room.  Lodge Room guests enjoy 24 hour access to the Great Room.  Relax on the over-stuffed furniture and soak up the history of the 100 year old lodgepole pine beams.  Enjoy a book from the library in front of the original stone fireplace.  A large flat screen tv brings you up to date with free satellite service.

All of our lodge rooms have lofted ceilings, exposed beams and hardwood floors.  Choose from: the Deer Lodge Room, sleeping up to two with one queen bed and an attached bath; the Bison Lodge Room (sleeping up to four with two queen beds and attached bath); the Moose Lodge Room (sleeping up to four with two queen beds and attached bath) or the Grizzly Lodge Room (sleeping up to five with two queen beds and a daybed).  The Moose and Grizzly Rooms share a covered balcony making them a great option for groups of up to nine guests travelling together.

Lodge Room guests enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast in the lodge which also houses an Espresso Bar, Gift Shop and restaurant (serving The Shak BBQ from 3pm).

With daily housekeeping as standard and attention to detail such as ceiling fans, handcrafted furniture and adjustable lighting, you can enjoy the ambiance of a traditional Glacier National Park lodge with all the modern amenities you need for your comfort.

We look forward to welcoming you to your home away from home!

Glacier National Park Summer Vacations

May 13th, 2013 by teresa

Blue sky against tall pines, long drawn out sunsets, a million and one stars – you will soon discover why they call Montana ‘Big Sky’ country! With summer temperatures possibly hitting 100 you will find the perfect opportunity to head off into the cool air of the mountains or to take a dip in the lakes and rivers. The beauty of Montana at the height of the season is unsurpassed and you will return from your travels with a photograph album that will become the envy of all your friends!

The Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins offers, within a five-mile radius, an array of activities appealing to all ages and a wide range of interests. The Flathead National Forest right outside our back door provides miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking and ample opportunities for fishing and hunting. Nearby Kalispell, Whitefish and Bigfork have plenty of boutiques and antique shops and, in the summer months, there are ample opportunities for water sports whether touring the Flathead Lake, rafting on the rivers or shooting down the slides at the nearby Big Sky Water Park.

Of course, there is always Glacier National Park, only 8 miles away and open year round, its our main attraction and with good reason!  Visitors to Glacier National Park enjoy the park’s 1 million acres of lakes, sweeping valleys and glacier carved mountains. Glacier is 40 miles wide from east to west, and 50 miles long north to south. A complete suite of wildlife that includes wolves, grizzly bears, lynx and other natural predators sets it apart from nearly every other national park, a park so naturally beautiful it is known as the “Crown Jewel of the Continent.”

Mountain bikes and fishing equipment are available for rental from the lodge.

When you are done exploring for the day, try dinner at one of our many local restaurants, or cook on the grill at the lodge and enjoy a game of horseshoes or volleyball in our backyard. The Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins are famous for our evening campfires, hosted by our staff and often accompanied by local musicians.

Regardless of the weather, season, or activity there is always spectacular scenery. With Montana’s Rocky Mountains as your backdrop, the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins will provide you with the perfect setting for your next family vacation, corporate retreat, or weekend getaway.
