Glacier National Park Lodge

May 3rd, 2013 by teresa

5182026670_a5363cd092_bIn 1862, a group of men from a Minnesota Masonic Lodge met in the breathtaking Montana Rockies.  In the early 1900’s they built and used the “Belton Masonic Lodge” to stay in while they played in and explored Glacier Park. Originally located on the site of West Glacier Elementary School, behind the train station at West Glacier (or Belton, as it was then known), the lodge was not open to the public during this time.

In the 1940’s the lodge was moved log by massive log to its current home in Martin City.  Since its reconstruction the lodge has served in many forms, from a simple shelter from the elements to a playground for school children, a restaurant, a dance hall and even a roller skating rink.

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

Four Glacier National Park themed lodge rooms provide accommodation within the lodge itself for our guests to experience a taste of traditional mountain living.  Each lodge room has attached private bath and shared access to the lodge great room and amenities.  Rates include a continental breakfast in the lodge (May-October).

Check availability and book your Glacier National Park vacation steeped in the history of the area.
