I visited Grouse off-season (early April) for two nights while visiting Glacier National Park and the surrounding area. The lodge was pretty empty, and in fact the ballroom had been converted into a "workshop" for refinishing room furniture and the restaurant closed for remodeling. Given the time of year, I was not surprised -- in fact, I found it encouraging to see the amount of effort they were putting into readying the property for the upcoming peak season. We had also received a call in advance of arrival from the hotel to warn us about the restaurant closure (a nice touch!) and explaining that a complimentary shuttle would be available to take us into town. The lobby is beautiful, the pool and outdoor hot tubs were a nice touch, and the room was MORE than adequate. While far from ultra-modern, I wouldn't come to a mountain lodge expecting any more than what I found here. The room (and general property) was immaculate and in very good shape. Our room (in the north wing) featured cathedral ceilings with tons of light (yet with adjustable blinds on each so we could easily darken the room when necessary) and appeared to be freshly painted. The finishings are certainly dated to the early 70s, but in great condition. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful and the shuttle service was fast and convenient. The lodge is in a great location, close to Whitefish, The Big Mountain and Glacier. I would gladly stay here again if I had the opportunity to return to the area.
