    We stayed in one of the cabins on site, across the driveway from the Inn itself. The location feels a little remote when you first arrive, out in the middle of the woods on dirt and gravel road, but our cabin was comfortable and clean....More

    We are arriving and departing on the Amtrak train (in August), so we will not have a car. Is there transportation available to and from the Inn to the train station, and also transportation into Glacier Nat'l Park? Thank you!

    My wife and I are interested in staying at the Great Bear Inn at West Glacier. We would appreciate knowing if the "Mini-Grand" room on the main floor is right next to the shared public areas like the kitchen and dining room. We are wondering how private and quiet the Mini-Grand room is. Thank you in advance for your reply. Cap
