Many Glacier Lodge - Glacier National Park

Our last night in Glacier was spent at Many Glacier Lodge. It is tucked in a valley next to a lake with gorgeous mountains in the background. This was my favorite lodge location of the four historic lodges that we stayed at in Glacier. We had misty rainy weather during most of our stay.

The lodge looks like a Swiss Chalet. The lobby is small and has a great fireplace in the center that is very cozy on a rainy afternoon.

Unfortunately, the rooms are very deary. We had a shared balcony again, with an unfortunate view of the road to the parking lot. I had a peak at some of the lake view rooms and they were very tiny. We heard that the lodge and the dining room are scheduled for some refurbishing next year. Good news.

We did some hiking around the lake and there are lots of trails that start by the lodge. I was very nervous while hiking because of all the recent bear activity, including Jack Hanna being charged by a grizzly bear about a week before our visit. We did watch a couple bears on the north slope - but they were very distant and we viewed them through binoculars.

Here are a few more shots of the Many Glacier area:
