“Visited the Belton Chalet in June, 2003”
Reviewed 31 December 2003

My husband and I visited Glacier N.P. for four days in June of 2003 and chose to stay at the Belton Chalet. (Some of the park hotels are just opening the beginning of June while others don't open until around the 12th.) The owners have done an outstanding job restoring the Chalet and the gardens are awesome. You will find Andy and his wife (two of the owners) very personable and the entire staff very helpful and friendly.
We had dinner in the restaurant two nights and were not disappointed.
Back in its day (1910), this was a dorm-type, so don't expect luxury accomodations, but rather you may feel transported back in time. Would recommend one of the back rooms for light sleepers, as there is still a very active train route in front of the Chalet that runs all day and night. You can't beat the location either--right outside the West Entrance to Glacier gives you easy access to the entire park. I would definitely recommend including the Belton Chalet in your experience of visiting Glacier National Park.
