Never having been to Whitefish (or Glacier National Park, for that matter), we chose to stay at the Garden Wall Inn, based on the great reviews on this website...Needless to say, our two night stay was perfect! Both Rhonda and Chris are extremely accommodating hosts... Chris called in our dinner reservations to a wonderful restaurant in the area... Both Rhonda and Chris have a wealth of knowledge of Glacier National Park and the surrounding areas.
The morning breakfasts were fabulous! Rhonda served us breakfast the first morning and Chris the second. They both get the highest marks for food and presentation!!!
As has been mentioned in other reviews, the rooms were all styled tastefullly, with Crabtree & Evelyn products, dark chocolate mints on the pillows, and best of all, beautiful hand-cut flowers from their yard!!
The next time we visit Glacier National Park, we'll be staying outside of the park, in Whitefish at the Garden Wall Inn. There is all the charm you can think of here and two fantastic hosts/chefs!! What more could one want?
Thanks Rhonda & Chris!!!
