On the shores of Lake McDonald not far from Apgar and West Glacier, this lodge is an ideal base for exploring the western side of the park and is one of the great historic lodges of the West. Scenic cruises of the park's largest lake depart from the boat docks right behind the lodge or you can rent private boats by the hour or by the day. Take a room in the lodge itself, where public spaces are filled with massive timbers, stone fireplaces, and animal trophies. Rooms are on the second and third floors of the lodge and there is no elevator. Cabins sleep up to four and don't have kitchens; there are also motel-style rooms separate from the lodge, four deluxe suites, and eight newly built inexpensive hostel-style rooms with shared bathrooms. All rooms are nonsmoking, and there are four wheelchair-accessible rooms.
