Plan your stay

May 10th, 2014 by teresa

Book your activities at the Historic Tamarack Lodge and CabinsAre you stuck for ideas for activities during your stay?  Spoilt for choice and no idea how to select the best activity for you? Just don’t have the time to coordinate booking your adventures in Glacier National Park?

We can help!

Here at the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins we do our best to make your stay as comfortable as possible and strive to take care of the details so that you can relax and make memories.

Let our in-house guides and activity co-ordinators take the stress off by planning your itinerary for you.  Even better, let them be your guides for the day and ensure you are transported to your chosen activity, guided through the experience, and returned back to your lodging at the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins to tell us all about it!

Simply visit with the guides in the lodge on Monday and Wednesday mornings, or join them for interpretive talks and stories from the backcountry around the campfire on Tuesday and Friday evenings.

If they are out on adventures with other guests, you can drop them a line via email to greg@glacieradventureguides.com or leave a voicemail at (406)871-2162.  They’ll be sure to contact you as soon as they are able.

You can also ask our Front Desk staff for suggestions for suitable hikes, places of interest, and for discounted opportunities with local outfitters.  They will be happy to help!

NA008587We know that many of our guests return again and again to take advantage of our great location between Glacier National Park, Whitefish and the Flathead Valley and we love to welcome you on your return and catch up on life’s great adventures.  In recognition and appreciation for all our guests we offer a 10% discount exclusively for all guests booking a return stay.  Typically, we only allow one discount per booking but with a friends and family discount you can combine your 10% with any other offer.

There’s nothing better to us after the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping and parties to get out in the mountains and enjoy the silence and stillness and snowmobiling is a great way to get out there and get some fresh air.  There are plenty of groomed trails and something for every age and ability and if you book a sled’n'stay for the 2014 season during December we will give you an extra 10% discount.

Already thinking about Summer in Glacier National Park?  Book your summer stay with us during December and we will also discount that for you!  Shh….we never discount our summer rates, so take advantage while you can!

The lodge is not in hibernation mode..on the contrary, not only are we open year round, we are making changes and creating new additions ready for Summer 2014.

It promises to be a great year and we wish you all the very best 2014.

Columbia Falls

March 19th, 2010 by HTL

The closest small town to the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins, Columbia Falls, is located at the entrance of the Canyon, the Gateway to Glacier National Park.

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 !

Campfire days !

March 3rd, 2010 by HTL

Spring is in the air at the Lodge and a gentle reminder that the busy days of Summer are just around the corner.  Its one of the highlights of our jobs as hosts to have the pleasure of sharing evenings around the campfire with our guests, and what campfire is complete without smores ?!

Here’s some recipes we are looking forward to trying out over the Summer … feel free to add your own to the list and we’ll all be rolling into Fall fat and happy !

Strawberry, dark chocolate and oatmeal smores (using oatmeal cookies so we can at least pretend its healthy – hey, there’s fruit in there too !);

Nilla wafer, white chocolate and banana (one for the kids);

Caramel-filled Ghirardelli  and chocolate chip cookies (for xxx rated total indulgence !);
