My wife and I are visiting all 58 National Parks in the USA and we've stayed at many B&B's across the country. Glacier Park Inn B & B was one of the top three of all we've stayed at...from coast to coast, North to South. We were in the Camas room. Quiet, King bed, two large, double door closets for all our hiking gear, and a Temperpedic mattress (that was a first and we've stayed in scores of hotels, lodges and B & Bs). Hosts Mark and Mary are easy going, outdoor-loving people that were eager to share hiking trail and restaurant suggestions. They offered a spotting scope on the deck overlooking the river so we could watch and study a perching Bald Eagle. Nice touch. This is bear country but we didn't bring any Bear Repellant. No problem. When I asked where I could buy a canister, fully expecting her to give me the name of her favorite Outfitters store, Mary offered a $50 canister with holster. No charge, no deposit. Speaking of deposits, the hosts didn't even require a deposit to hold the room! Another first.
One day we went to Waterton National Park on the Canadian border. I asked Mary if we could make our breakfast since we wanted to get an early start, before the usual 7:00 AM first call for breakfast. By the way, Mary and Mark don't have a set time for breakfast; they ask when you want to eat and then accomodate the guest. Another first. Anyway, she said we could make our own breakfast, but she would be glad to make it for us, well before 7:00AM...and she did!
Finally, when you're considering a stay in a place named Hungry Horse, Montana, you may be inclined to lower your expections. No need. This is a clean, comfy, well appointed mountain home, with real people as hosts, who seem to be way more interested in us than in explaining a bunch of rules and regulations. They have one rule: enjoy your day.
