One of two classic 1940s-era motor inns in the park, the Rising Sun is getting a makeover. The rustic motel and cabin rooms that lie in the back of the compound across the road from the upper north shore of St Mary Lake are being gutted and upgraded. Expect the same general cozy feel, only with more up-to-date furnishings.
The motel is part of a small complex that includes an excellent general store, campground and boat launch. The lobby and check-in is in the same building as the friendly restaurant and gift shop.
