Oh, to touch heaven! That's what it feels like to stay here. The views are incredible, gorgeous and captivating. Sure, the walls are thin and the outhouse smells like, well, an outhouse, but it is totally worth it to have a roof over your head and stone walls to protect against the storms that roll through. This has to be one of the best vacations ever!

Fabulous views along the way make this well worth a visit. Chalet itself is bare bones, what one expects given it's location. Go with the expectation that you are there for the scenery and not for amenities. We paid extra for linens; mattresses are old and bunks creaky. I would happily have paid more for food options that aren't all freeze dried. We hiked the Highline trail to the Chalet and the Loop trail down - latter doesn't have much scenery to speak of, hiking through trees so you don't see much. Former has much nicer views, though part of the view is looking down on the GTS road, which doesn't exactly make you feel you are in a remote location! We had hoped to go up through Swiftcurrent Pass, but snow still on that trail made as switch plans. Somewhat by surprise though there is almost no cell phone reception in the park, there was reception at the chalet. Need to reserve early as the rooms fill up soon after reservations open in the fall.

We stayed at Sperry on our trip as well and we enjoyed the food very much but Granite Park Lodge has Sperry beat with the views. We missed three Grizzly sightings within a hundred yards of the Lodge by about an hour. We also hiked up to Grinnell over-look which, in our opinion, wasn't work the hike. Just hike into the Glacier and skip the over-look. We did hike up to the fire-tower which was definitely worth it. Amazing views there. We thought the beds were better here than Sperry as well. One of the little chipmunk fellas was crawling all over me while I was eating and taking pictures.

I planned my 10 days in Glacier National Park around getting into the 2 chalets. Book early, applications are accepted for a short period in mid to late October. After that it is booked up, except for cancellations. Do the Highline trail from Logan Pass for this Chalet, at least in one direction (in or out). Do Swiftcurrent Pass for the other direction. Take all day for both/each. Only do "the loop" (steep, hot, boring) if time is limited. Spend AT LEAST 2 nights, maybe 3, to have layover days for day hiking. Do the Swiftcurrent Lookout (all uphill both ways, or maybe it just felt like it), and Grinnell Glacier overlook too.

This is a "hostel style" chalet, in that the kitchen is shared by all guests. All rooms are private, no dorm style sleeping. Bathroom is a single compost toliet (1 girls, 1 boys) separate from the chalet. There is no running water at all. You can bring in your food, and your bedding, or you can do an "add on service" to have bedding provided, and food and water ordered in for your arrival. Depends on what you want to carry in your pack, and finances.

The buildings are old, sound carries, be prepared to know your neighbors even if you aren't sleeping in the same bed with them! There is a social time each night, nature talks, games, etc., a great way to meet wonderful people who love the outdoors. This is a hike in chalet only, no horse service, makes for a better crowd I think, and no poop on the trail either!

The staff is great, absolutely superb, all around. You cannot beat this location, the chalet is perched on a rocky outcrop with full 360 views, sunrise and sunset are remarkable. Must do!

Room Tip: Some rooms are in the main chalet building, so you hear goings on in the kitchen and dining/social area downstairs. Some rooms are in a separate building, closer to the toilets.

Beautiful location in the middle of nowhere. Just sit back and relax and watch the sunset in the evening. Don't expect super comfort and great food, it is a hut in the mountains overall. Staff is very helpful and efficient. Rather than preordering your food bring your own food but be reminded that you have to carry everything on your back. Suggest you don't bring your own sleeping bag and buy the linen package. No shower, no flushing toilet but pristine nature.
Ear plugs are provided and sometimes essential, the walls look think but you might hear people snoring inone of the other bunk rooms.

Room Tip: Book as early as possible to make sure you get a bed.
