          Nice Historic Railroad Hotel

          I dislike writing reviews like this one because there are way too many variables.

          One Star: If you think that roughing it is a Holiday Inn then this is not the hotel for you. The rooms a small almost primitive compared to modern hotels. If you are a very light sleeper the train tracks are way too close for you.

          Two Stars: The reason I gave this hotel two stars can be attributed to the fact that this is the early part of the season. We had small problems with housekeeping and the menu in the Diner was obsolete as in they did not have everything that was on the menu and some of the menu items had changed.

          Three Stars: This is the score I would have liked to give this hotel and if I were to return in July once all the summer staff had had a chance to learn their jobs the hotel would probably earn three stars.

          Four Stars: If you want to experience what it was like to stay in a hotel nearly 100 years ago this is the place for you. About the only difference between then and now is the indoor plumbing. Izaak Walton Hotel is a perfect example of a historic hotel.

          Five Stars: If you want to experience a historic railroad hotel and are a rail fan, this is heaven on earth. The BNSF main line is almost outside the front door. The trains are close enough that you can enjoy them yet far enough away to not seriously disturb your sleep.

          A Great Winter Retreat

          Great skiing, good food, friendly staff. We drove to the inn since it was part of a longer trip to a number of national parks but, one of the appeals of this location is taking the train right to the inn and back. A great winter retreat. I definitely need to go by train some time.

          We found this Inn when we drove around the southeast part of the Park. I like all the railroad stuff and would like to stay here one day.

          ... from the hike, cooking some dinner and a massive deer wanders into the campsite next to mine. The family of five(three very young kids) were away. The deer wandered in and sniffed his way to the potty in the tent. I've since learned that animals go after the salt that is in our urine. The ranger then chased the deer away and five seconds later there was another ranger shooing a bear away from the woods behind my site. I chose the hot corner this ...

          A travel blog entry by bazookatie on Aug 26, 2014

          We left Seattle yesterday morning, stayed overnight in a random motel about an hour from Glacier National Park, and then arrived at the park this morning. We hiked the Hidden Lake Trail which took us to a beautiful small lake surrounded by mountains called, Hidden Lake. It was only about 1.5 miles each way, but it was so picturesque that it took us a while to get through with all the photo ...

About a half mile down the trail we came across a man and son sitting off to the side who told us that about twenty minutes earlier, as they were coming up the trail, they had spotted a Grizzly a few hundred meters uphill from the trail moving in our direction towards the lake. So they joined our team on the hike downhill and we kept our eyes peeled and our voices loud as we ...

          Weather - Sunny, then cloudy

          Although the campground at Two Medicine Lake was fairly large, it was quite empty when we arrived. We had picked a site close to the entrance to the loop we were on, but far enough away so that we wouldn't be disturbed by anyone driving in and out of the area. Unfortunately, another group arrived after we did and decided to take a site near ours. The good news was that by the time we ...
