Enjoy a Winter Getaway at a historical Railroad Nordic Ski Resort nestled on the border of Glacier National Park
In 1939, the Great Northern Railway built a chalet to lodge snow-removal crews working along the railroad in Montana's Glacier National Park. Now called the Izaak Walton Inn, the property draws visitors from around the world for its location in the park as well as abundant hiking and whitewater-rafting opportunities. But the inn hasn't neglected its past; railroad-themed décor, vintage train schedules, and restored railcars pay homage to the historical Great Northern Railway. Amtrak and Burlington Northern Railroad trains chug past Izaak Walton Inn each day, sometimes pausing at the nearby Essex stop before journeying into the snow-capped wilderness.
With no telephones, televisions, or coffeemakers, guest rooms maintain a peaceful rusticity. Inside Empire Builder rooms, duvets are trimmed in locomotive engineer stripes and emblazoned with the Burlington Northern Railroad's logo.
Cabooses are appointed with a bathroom with shower, kitchen, & a deck with chairs and a propane grill overlooking the tracks with spectacular views. Perfect for ski-in/ski-out winter fun and woodsy summer relaxation.
A Nordic Ski resort--Cross-country ski trails surround the chalet, and ski instructors are on hand to give lessons or guide fledgling skiers along custom routes. Half-day snowshoe tours trek past centuries-old larch trees and over suspension bridges.
