Perched on a hill within snowball-throwing distance of Glacier National Park’s southern boundary, this historic mock-Tudor inn was originally built in 1939 to accommodate local railway personnel. It remains a daily flag-stop (request stop) on Amtrak’s Empire Builder route – a romantic way to arrive. Caboose cottages with kitchenettes are available, along with a historic GN441 locomotive refurbished as a luxury four-person suite ($329).

Located close to the Park Creek area, the lodge became something of an incongruity after WWII, when a plan to build a new southern park entrance in the vicinity never materialized. Dubbed the ‘Inn between’ in the years since, the Izaak has enjoyed a modern renaissance with cozy rooms, a sauna and easy access to miles of cross-country skiing trails.
