Lonely Planet review
Built in 1913, this old hunting lodge is adorned with stuffed-animal trophies and exudes relaxation. The 100 rooms are lodge, chalet or motel style. Nightly park-ranger talks and lake cruises add a rustic ambience. There's a restaurant and pizzeria.
Our independent authors have visited Lake McDonald Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Glacier National Park.
