This is my first winter trip to IWI, and I now plan to make it an annual January retreat. Impeccably clean, simple, historic, unpretentious, safe, and quiet, and just a tiny bit quirky. This isn't a place to hook up, party hard, or enjoy wild skiing. During the week there are a few oldsters like me (I'm 64), some of...

Our family of 10 went out and reserved the house and had a great time at the restaurant and bar for prime rib dinner and champagne toasts to fireworks after New Years! It was an absolutely fantastic time and the staff were so great! We also went Cross Country Skiing, which was perfect as there were trails a stones throw...

We had a family holiday in Essex this winter. Eight of us stayed in the Walton House. It was a cozy cabin/house, and we had excellent cross country skiing weather. The temperatures were mostly between 10 and 30 F for the week we were there, and fresh snow fell every day. The groomed trails were beautiful. The inn has lots...

We stayed at the hotel for the Christmas holiday. The hotel staff was great and made the stay very enjoyable. The rooms are small and clean and loved not having a TV in the room. Also got our exercise going up and down the stairs. The food was fantastic and they were very accommodating to my husband allergy. I did...

8 of us had lunch here, really tasty food and so much fun with all the train memorabilia and Glacier area history. Wide ranging menu, outside tables available, full bar. And a museum's worth of photos and items about trains.

We stayed in luxury caboose X215 this time which is our 3rd different one so far. This one is set back from the lodge and noise against scenic woods. This one had a nice fireplace, heated floor in the bathroom, terrific paneling on the walls, and plenty of room in the bathroom. There were few if any others staying near...

My sister and mother treated us to a girls weekend for my birthday recently. None of us had ever been there. We are familiar with the area and other historic hotels so we did have an idea of what to expect. The room was exactly what we were hoping for. Unlike many of the reviews that commented on the slow...

If you want to get away from all electronics communication including cell phones, TV, land phone, this is the place. Beautiful surroundings in the middle of the Montana Rockies. Lots of hiking, skiing trails. Plus if you enjoy trains it is close to the Burlington Northern railroad tracks. For train picture taking it is great.

We made a trip to Glacier last week, and we had only one reservation, the Isaac Walton.Sat. night. Oct 29. We were on the second floor, no elevator. Our room was quaint, comfortable enough, but dusty. One television in the hotel in the bar, inoperative. It was kind of between seasons, and that seemed to be the attitude. The dinner...

We were at I.W. for two nights for a special event. The event coordinator, Holly, was very helpful in answering all of our detailed questions prior to the event. We are very thankful to her, although there is certainly room for improvement in the actual event logistics (we'll get to that in a minute). Positives (lodging): We had family in...
